Trevelyan (Charles Edward) Archive

Scope and Content

The Trevelyan Papers, deposited by the Trevelyan family, are those of several generations of the Trevelyan family whose home was Wallington Hall, Northumberland. The archive is rich and diverse, not least because the family had so many roles and indulged so many interests between them that the archive can truly be described as multi-disciplinary.

Charles Edward Trevelyan (1807-1886) worked for the East India Company and the Home Civil Service. He was Assistant Secretary to the Treasury during the Irish Famine. Although his papers largely reflect his interest in Civil Service reform, the papers include some material relating to education.
