Its unrivalled collection of Walpoliana includes half the traceable volumes from Horace Walpole's famous library at Strawberry Hill and many letters and other manuscripts by him. The Library's book and manuscript collections, numbering over 32,000 volumes, cover all aspects of eighteenth-century British culture. The Library is also home to the largest and finest collection of eighteenth-century British graphic art outside the British Museum; its 35,000 satirical prints, portraits, and topographical views are an incomparable resource for visual material on many facets of English life of the period. Located in Farmington, Connecticut, forty miles north of New Haven and within easy distance of Boston and New York, the Lewis Walpole Library's collections also include drawings, paintings, and furniture, all housed on a 14-acre campus with four historically important structures and extensive grounds.

One thought on “Course of the exchange, &c.

  1. this is a most important piece of paper, containing I suspect to something with more volume. I understand it this way, Richard Shergold was a broker of Threadneedle St London. He is cited in the British library of helping a disabled person retrieving a purse lost on a London St, meeting Samuel Pepys a numerous amount of times including upon London Bridge during the Great Fire of 1666. His son George mentioned here is that of Iver Manor Buckinghamshire who alienated it in 1776 to Mary Shergold wife of another notable Rev Durand Rhudde. George was mentioned elsewhere as being a mariner of a ship in famous sea battle of England.. Richard Shergold had many children and was originally of Shergolds of Wiltshire associated closely with Rev John Shergold of Devizes through connection in the family. Also of the time was Sutton the magistrate who was one of the founders of the Stock Exchange and was responsible for sending one John Shergold aboard the Barwell to Australia, whom married again and visited New Zealand. Richard Cooke Shergold his brother was through decendancy the primary foundation of Shergolds in Aston/Birmingham after servitude of Staines branch in the publican domain….. It is lovely to see part of Castraings work after all these years, and I notice of this site that Walpole the Prime Minister is mentioned for which communications in the British library also exist with both George and Richard, Richard in protest of something or another; and George who became an Excise officer at Southampton…… more facts available in detail by contacting me
