Lady Anne Clifford, Countess Dowager of Dorset, Pembroke and Montgomery, suo jure 14th Baroness de Clifford (30 January 1590 – 22 March 1676) was an English peeress. In 1605 she inherited her father's ancient barony by writ and became suo jure 14th Baroness de Clifford.

Anne Clifford was the only surviving daughter – as she is careful to tell us – of George Clifford, 3rd Earl of Cumberland. The Great Books were clearly written down in several different hands at Lady Anne’s dictation. She married successively Richard, 3rd Earl of Dorset, and Philip, 4th Earl of Pembroke. In spite of frequent quarrels over the disposal of her inheritance, her first marriage was hardly so unhappy as the second, which was an inevitable failure. Principal among her scribes must have been Edward Langley, who served for many years as her secretary; there is a letter still in existence in which she says: ‘Take care thatt there may be some greatt paper be bought for Ed.

Through compiling and transcribing the surviving manuscript records, this text combines the full range of Lady Anne Clifford's life, from her active life at court as the Countess of Dorset, her turbulent second marriage to the fourth Earl of Pembroke at Wilton in Wiltshire, and her final, long-disputed succession to her father's lands in Westmorland and North Yorkshire. The diaries are complemented by explanatory notes, family trees and illustrations. They provide both an important historical record and a glimpse into the life and character of Lady Anne.

It is a shame that the story of Lady Anne Clifford is not told more often! I had my first encounter with this text in my first year of graduate school. This it the amazing tale of Lady Anne Clifford, a seventeenth century woman who fought for the right to her inheritance in a time when only men were permitted to own land. Not only does this text provide an insightful glimpse into the life of a woman of this age, but it also provides humorous and courageous encounters with some of the most powerful men of her time, most notably King James I of England. It also demonstrates the power of journal writing. In writing about her life, she provides historical documentation of her right to her father's lands and wealth. Brilliant!

I purchased this book as recommended reading while researching my lineage! Very informative to see where my family name came from and see where my roots began in England.

What a treat this book was! It is a remarkable story of a woman who showed unusual determination and courage in protecting her inheritance and personal rights through 2 marriages and into her 80s as an independent landowner and force in her communities. It is an easy read, and provides a first-hand view of life in the late Elizabeth I, early James I eras.
