    Elizabeth Gaskell and Tatton Park The major 19th century novelist on Tatton’s doorstep: Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell Orphaned as a very young child, Elizabeth Stevenson, later Gaskell, grew up with her aunt Hannah Lumb in Knutsford, the market town next to Tatton Park. A very quick review. A beautifully written book filled with the feminine niceties and social customs of provincial early 19th Century life. A very interesting read to myself as I was born at Cranford Lodge, Knutsford, the true market town in the north of England that Gaskell based her novel by: 4.

    After her mother's death in , Gaskell lived with her aunt, Hannah Lumb, in Knutsford, Cheshire (on what is now called "Gaskell Avenue"). Knutsford served as Gaskell's model for the small country town of Cranford in the eponymous novel and Hollingford in Wives and Daughters. Elizabeth was educated in the traditional disciplines for young. Cranford is quite an unusual book. Having read North and South and Wives and Daughters, this novel (if you can call it one) took me by begin with, it has no proper plot or structure. It is rather a written collection of lives, customs and social values of people of a fictitious town called "Cranford" which is modelled after the small Cheshire town of Knutsford/5.

    The Gaskell Society has UK regional branches in Manchester; Knutsford; London & South East, and the South West of England. We host several events a year, including meetings, trips and socials, which you can read about in our events calendar. We host a national conference every two years. Elizabeth Gaskell is equally well known as Mrs Gaskell. When her mother died, she was three months old and she was sent to live in Knutsford, Cheshire with her Aunt Hannah, this setting would become the basis for her novel Cranford.
