The Diary of Charles Fothergill, 1805: An Itinerary to York, Flamborough and the North-Western Dales of Yorkshire
Yorkshire Archaeological Society, 1984 - 281 Seiten
"The document published here in Fothergill's diary of his adventures as he perambulated the county of Yorkshire between May 1805 and January 1806. It is the record of a young Yorkshire Quaker, of yeoman roots and bourgeois estate, in search of the history, antiquities, folk- lore, customs and other phenomena, both "natural" and "civil," of his native county." (p. 6) Charles Fothergill (1782-1840) married Charlotte Nevins in 1811, and in 1816 they immigrated to Upper Canada, and eventually settled in Toronto, Ontario.
