Weld-Appleton family papers

Item Information

Title:
Weld-Appleton family papers
Description:
Materials in this collection illustrate and document the life the Appleton family and Weld family, pivoting around Dorothy Everard (Appleton) Weld and her husband George Francis Weld, Sr. The collection documents these two individuals as well as their ancestors, siblings, and children. This collection includes photograph albums and loose photographs of many family members. The albums and photographs document Holbrook Hall (the Appletons' estate in West Newton, Massachusetts); members of the Appleton and Weld families; vacations at the Putnam-Bowditch Camp in Keene, New York; Dorothy Appleton and George Francis Weld's honeymoon; members of the Standen, Winterbottom, and Huntingdon families (associated by marriage); Dorothy Everard Appleton's 1903 European trip; the Appleton House in New Ipswich, New Hampshire; and family portraits. The collection also includes correspondence among the Appletons, Curtises, Welds, and others; birth and marriage certificates; written works by family members; and other personal papers. The collection also includes sketchbooks, most of which were compiled by Dorothy Everard Appleton Weld. Processing/updating the collection and making the finding aid accessible online were made possible through grants from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (Award Number: NAR13-RH-50051-13), the Bedford Family Foundation, and an anonymous donor.
