NEW CASE STUDY: William Gamul Farmer
Project associate and author Penelope Farmer has contributed a family-focused case study to the East India Company at Home project. In her study Penelope primarily analyses a series of letters written by William Gamul Farmer in India to his mother and brother in Britain between 1763 and 1795.The letters suggest the ways in which families held themselves together despite the vast distances in time and space that separated them. Together they offer insights into the private and social workings that underpinned the imperial and mercantile enterprise of the East India Company. To read the case stud, click here.
