Should you be investigating a Victorian Ancestor here is my book blurb. Who Do I Think You Were? A Victorian’s Inheritance
Walter Parker was a working-class boy who grew up in the model agricultural village of Thorney, Cambridgeshire, owned by the 11th Duke of Bedford. Aged just 21 years, Walter escaped a toxic emotional inheritance to make something of himself in the New World. His is a story of toil, resilience, and perseverance.
In this first volume of Who Do I Think You Were? family historian and counsellor Helen Parker-Drabble, uses genealogy, social history, and psychological theory to deepen her understanding of the early life of her grandfather.
In A Victorian's Inheritance, Helen demonstrates how personality traits, reactions and patterns of behaviour can be passed down the generations. She reveals how environment and life experiences can trigger life-changing mechanisms in our genes. The result is a fascinating exploration of a Victorian’s inheritance.
Good luck!
