Abstract

Beyond the immediate household there were other figures of Charles’s childhood: Randal Norris of the Temple, Charles’s godfathers Fielde and Henshaw, and Charles Lovekin. These lived most of their lives in or near London. In Hertfordshire, a county just to the north of (London’s) Middlesex and bordering on it, were Grandmother Mary Field,1 old Mrs Plumer, and a host of casual acquaintances in the village of Widford and the town of Ware near the great house Blakesware; also Great-Aunt Ann Gladman, Grandmother Field’s sister, at a farm called Mackery End, near Wheathampstead.
