Tennyson

1892 Tennyson Re Caistor Notes on the Tennyson Family written Circa 1892 by Henry Evan Smith (1828 – 1908) of Caistor and now first printed; Edited by Peter B. G. Binnall. From the Rev David Saunders Collection and part of the Caistor Heritage Trust Archive. Source unknown.

“Alfred’s university career was cut short by his father’s death; and for some years he led a roving and unsettled existence. From 1831 to 1835 he was half time in private lodgings at Caistor, the other half he would spend partly in London and partly in visits to his mother or amongst friends…” Taken from the book above. It has been related to me (Alan Dennis) that when he was in Caistor he slept all day and was up all night!!

This and the following pages clearly are an old description of Caistor and the Wolds. I have not found the time to try and write it in modern English. It was part of the folder in which I found the Evans (edited by Binnell) description of Tennyson. From the Rev. David Saunders Collection in the Caistor Heritage Trust Archive.
