Advert Description

Oxfam Bookshop Exeter For almost 250 years the Gages of Hengrave Hall, near Bury St Edmunds, were the leading Roman Catholic family in Suffolk, and the sponsors and protectors of most Catholic missionary endeavours in the western half of the county. This book traces their rise from an offshoot of a Sussex recusant family, to the extinction of the senior line in 1767, when the Gages became the Rookwood Gages. Drawing for the first time on the extensive records of the Gage family in Cambridge University Library, the book considers the Gages as part of the wider Catholic community of Bury St Edmunds and west Suffolk, and includes transcriptions of selected family letters as well as the surviving eighteenth-century Benedictine and Jesuit mission registers for Bury St Edmunds. Condition: the dust-jacket is almost perfect, with some very light marking on the front and back covers. The boards show some mild corner-bumping, but are otherwise pristine. The book’s edges display some mild marking as well. The interior pages are mostly crisp and clean, and the binding is strong. See Oxfam website for delivery information
