An account of the Wildman family, and the occupancy of Newstead Abbey, Notts., by Thomas Wildman during the first half of the Nineteenth Century. It mentions the Plough Monday activities seen by Washington Irving (1835) at Newstead Abbey as an example of the self-conscious feudal revivals popular among some newly established landowners.
