Dame Merouda Pendray

her chronicle


This is both a research project and an experiment in creating a diary in the style of a Tudor-era woman. Research notes are usually found here, and my primary journal is here.

On ys day, I again trauelled with my lady daughter et her family to attend ye harvesting of apples et pompions, et the harvest is very good ys year. Et it is my wish to set my cooks to the prepeation of a moyle et a tarte and all other wholesome things as may be had. Et ye remainder of said apples shall be removed to ye cellars wherein are storfes those foods yt may last when kept cool. Et I have grete ease of ye mask I have received of ye surgeon, and hope yt I need never again write of a life without it.
