Almost every summer Queen Elizabeth and her court left her London palaces and embarked on a tour of her subjects’ (great) houses, usually for five or six weeks. These tours were referred to as “progresses” and in 1591 her route included West Sussex and Hampshire, one of her visits was to John Lumley at his house in Stansted. Caroline will be relating the story of the Queen’s 1591 progress at our next meeting.
Caroline’s previous talk to the society was very well received, as I’m sure this one will be.
