Abstract

The Temples of Stowe and Burton Dassett are in many ways a perfect case to explore the workings of an elite early modern family. The archival holdings for this family are extensive and the
family was positioned between the aristocracy and the middle class, with members placed in varying degrees of intimacy with both groups. The archival evidence shows the family embedded in a widespread and complex kin and friendship network, with individuals in a variety of relationships of varying intensity.
