An Industrious Mind

Although D’Ewes and his wife expected to enjoy life at Stow Hall after Paul D’Ewes’s death, a series of conflicts with Richard Damport, the rector of Stowlangtoft, produced periods of exile in Lavenham and elsewhere for the couple and their family in the 1630s. Eight of the ten children Anne bore died very young, and they agonized over those losses repeatedly. D’Ewes also saw to the completion of his brother Richard’s upbringing and education and corresponded with him when the young man went on lengthy journeys on the Continent. D’Ewes continued his research project and library building. He also completed his journals of the parliaments of Queen Elizabeth I.
