Event description
A talk at Rydal Mount will open the pages on the life of William Wordsworth’s oldest child, John Wordsworth.

About this Event

The world renowned poet William Wordsworth and his wife Mary had five children, two of whom died in infancy.

But John, born in 1803, lived to the age of 72, was married four times (after three of his wives died) and was a vicar, latterly at Brigham Church between Keswick and Cockermouth.

His life has been researched by Muriel Strachan who will present the talk at Rydal Mount on November 14.

It's through John's line that the current owners of Rydal Mount, Wordsworth's great-great-great-great grandsons, are descended.
