Illustrated lecture: The Dukes of Sutherland in Staffordshire, by Robert Wisker (Stafford)
Richard Wisker will talk about how an important Staffordshire
family became one of the great governing families in England. The family
owned five great houses, including Trentham Hall, and enjoyed the lifestyle of
grandees in the 19th century. Successive duchesses were hostesses to all the
important people of the day. The lecture will also highlight the important art
collection of the family.
