Coleridge Family Archive

The Coleridge Family Archive

The Coleridge Family Archive consists of several thousand items of correspondence, diaries, literary manuscripts, legal notebooks and other records of the main line of the poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s family, dating from the mid-18th to the early 20th century.

Through the family’s links with leading literary,  political, religious and judicial figures, the archive offers a wealth of information about 19th century
England. It is being made public for the first time, for which we are grateful to the National Heritage Memorial Fund, the Pilgrim Trust, Friends of the British Library, Friends of the National Libraries, Lynn Foundation, Gamlen Charitable Trust, Denton Wilde Sapte Charitable Trust and members of the public for their support of this acquisition.
