Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
The volume was given to Caroline Waeick on 20 May 1839, by her mother. The contents appear to be in one hand, presumably that of Caroline's mother. Caroline Waeick has not yet been identified, although records of births, marriages and deaths in England and Wales reveal only a few entries for this surname during the nineteenth century, all in the London area.
No archival arrangement has been necessary.
