Mary, her Scottish background, and Scottish art, specially the Celtic Revival)

Background

Mary's Diary and the Arts and Crafts Movement, she and G.F. supporting designers, and his approval for her work.

The Arts and Crafts Movement

Liberalism strong in both Mary and GF, underlined in the Diary, specially Home Rule for Ireland.

Liberalism

Limnerslease

High-days and holidays at Limnerslease.

Archeology

Mary studied archeology at the BM, becoming more and more interested in differences and similarity in customs and spirituality in different religions, and ancient cultures, and wrote about what she discovered, andshe got GF interested in some he didn't know about.

A strong picture of her and his attitudes to the position of women and how to help it improve. She was lucky to be backed by him over this.

Empowering Women

Diaries showing a true interest in the countryside, and the plants and gardens of the time.

Love of the Country

Mary gives a picture of the social circle in the Art World in the last decades of the Victorian era

The Art World

Philanthropy

Philanthropic work, in London and in Compton.

An Enterprising Woman

The diaries show a strong woman. After the first few years of the marriage, she emerges, as the diary shows, from being an adoring admirer, into a real, enterprising, entertaining partner, and a person in her own right.
