Wed 8The Duke of Norfolk’s Deeds at Arundel Castle: The Early Howard Inheritance in Norfolk By Heather Warne
Time: 13:00 - 14:00

By the early 17th century the Howard family’s adherence to the proscribed Catholic faith had lost them the Dukedom and most of their money. Compensated by a beneficial marriage to a Sheffield heiress, their activities became focussed only on their Sussex, London and Yorkshire estates.
This is a hybrid event, with a small in-person audience at The Archive Centre and an online audience.
