The November Meeting is this Saturday, November 15 at 1.30pm in the Friends’ Lounge of the National Library. We will be discussing the group of characters Brian Southam, in Jane Austen and the Navy, National Maritime Museum. 2005, describes as the “vulgarians”, “individuals and groups moving on the fringes of the gentry”. His list includes the Misses Steel, Mrs Elton, nee Augusta Hawkins, Mr Price, Wickham, the steward’s son, Sir William Lucas and the Gardiners. And of course any others that members would like to nominate.
