Example text

The question now has to be asked how far and in what ways did women act as agents in their own and others’ education. Women’s diaries provide first-hand evidence of books women actually read. Anne Venn, daughter of the regicide Colonel John Venn, kept a diary ‘written in her own hand and found in her closet after her death,’ in which she noted: I got a book called Mr Rogers Evidences and another called The Touchstone of True Grace and another called None But Christ and divers others . . read Mr Dod upon the Commandments .

Whilst those in authority looked for uniformity and conformity, the picture the historian finds is one of contradiction and doubt, a picture in other words of the untidiness of life. The history of women’s education is not simply about women and girls, but about males and females and their inextricably bound interactions, and how these affected and were affected by conceptions such as virtue, obedience, citizenship and power, which could and often did produce behaviour and action very different from that intended.

Speaking as Juxon’s chaplain for the last five years, Denison acknowledges that she was ‘a most kind mother and nurse unto me’. Yet elsewhere he compares her to male as well as female biblical models and speaks of the zeal and love of god achieved by ‘her inner man’ (The Monument or Tombe-stone, 1620). Social rank complicated the realities of gender. Aristocratic and gentry women, by virtue of their status, acted as patrons to the clergy, exercised authority over servants, and were treated deferentially in their local community.
