I've completed my read at last ! Thanks so much for your research for details on places Mrs Croft visited on her travels.
Sophie Croft appears a navy wife who adapts well to change. I can see she returns from abroad with experiences so unknown to people of Somerset.
In 1814, she and the Admiral are,perhaps, a new breed of people occuplying the property of Kellynch Hall.
Great post, thanks again. :)
