About the Sampler from Nicola Parkman:
"Boulogne is a city and a major fishing port on the north coast of France. It is possible that Elizabeth stitched her primer when her family were holidaying in Boulogne, although the month of November may indicate a lengthy stay rather than a summer sojourn.
Boulogne-sur-Mer housed a large British population of around 3,000 in the mid-1800s. Although there were migrant workers there, Boulogne’s British population was composed largely of genteel, middle-class residents, some of them in debt, many with servants.
We wonder if Elizabeth kept the promise she so diligently stitched.'
