About this book
Hancox is a Tudor house in Sussex, where Charlotte Moore lives, and which has been in her family for 5 generations. Based on her family's archive, she creates an evocative portrait of life in the house on the eve of the First World War; not only of the family, but the rural life the house supported, and the changes it witnessed. It is an extraordinary tale of madness and jealousy, love and loss, heroism and tragedy. 'Utterly compelling. A marvellous book' "Spectator"
Hancox is the Tudor hall house in rural Sussex where the author grew up, and where she lives. It's been in the family since her ancestor Milicent Ludlow, young, single and an orphan, took it on in 1891 and began to enlarge the house and manage the farm. This title tells the story of the house and the family.
