Intimacy, Love and Loneliness: Coping with Seperation during the Napoleonic Wars, the Fremantle Papers, c.1801-14

Elaine Chalus, Professor of British History, Bath Spa University

Elaine Chalus’ research expertise lies in English social and political history during the long 18th century. Her current research project is on ‘The Admiral’s Wife: An Intimate History of Family, Navy and Empire’, which draws upon the largely unknown diaries of Elizabeth Wynne Fremantle (1778-1857), and the letters and correspondence of the larger Fremantle (Barons Cottesloe) family. Her lecture is drawn from this project, and examines the separation of husband and wife during the Napoleonic Wars.
