Abstract

The weather journal kept by Thomas Barker at Lyndon Hall, Rutland, from 1733 to 1789 is of outstanding value both for its continuity and content. The article describes the Barker family and Lyndon Hall, the relationship of Barker to William Whiston and Gilbert White, and the significance of his records for a reconstruction of climatic trends. The article is followed by a transcription of a newly-discovered letter from Thomas Barker to the Rev. Henry White, 20 April, 1785.-J.Sheail
