Scope and Content Note

This scrapbook consists of thirty-two pages of cards with illustrations and biographical sketches of sixty-four Catholics executed in Britain from 1535-1681. The cards are composed of clippings from published sources mounted on heavy paper. The scrapbook also contains an item entitled, “Portraits of English Martyrs.” It describes a collection of ten portraits held by the Teresian Nuns of Lanherne, Cornwall. The collection was donated to the nuns in 1681 by Mary Gifford, who was know as “Sister Mary of the Martyrs.” They were painted by Gifford’s father during his incarceration with the subjects.
