Lady Townshend's Bills, Receipts and Accounts

Clothing-related bills, receipts and account book excerpts from the Bacon/Townshend< collection held at the Folger Shakespeare Library. The majority are for Lady Jane (Stanhope) Townshend.

Interestingly, an additional account book of Nathanial Bacon held by the National Archives in England was used as the source for the tailor's bills and receipts in the article "Peckover and Galyard: Two Norfolk Tailors", in Journal of Costume. The contents of the bills are similar in nature and price to those given here, although they were for different members of the family and different tailors than the one Lady Townshend used.
