    Cataloging Decisions

    1. The cataloging of this collection was begun by Sara S. Hodson in 1979 and completed by Gayle M. Barkley in 2001. Consequently, the collection contains both blue and buff colored folders and names rendered in the correct Huntington form for 1979 (blue folders) as well as the standard authorized form currently used (buff folders). However, the names have been rendered consistently in this finding aid according to current standard authorized forms.
    2. Many of the letters, when originally acquired, were bound together in multiple volumes. These volumes were disbound in order to catalog the collection but the letters still retain holes and some binding strips from the original binding. The spines from these volumes were retained and placed in Ephemera (Box 53).
    3. Jane Porter’s handwriting (usually in pencil) appears on manuscripts and letters throughout the collection; she went back, later in life, and added many dates and place names. Unfortunately, she would often use the postmark date which was not the date the letter was written; for cataloging purposes the earlier date was used. Many of the letters also have penciled numbers written in the upper right corner by later collators. Because Jane Porter’s handwriting appears throughout the collection, it was decided not to index each instance separately.
    4. The following abbreviations were used throughout the folders in the collection to denote subject and added entries, and in cataloging notes. (Note: dates were not always used):
    • AMP, 1780-1832 -- Anna Maria Porter
    • JP, 1776-1850 -- Jane Porter
    • RKP, 1777-1842 -- Robert Ker Porter
    • JP, d. 1831 -- Jane (Blenkinsop) Porter
    5. Within the family, Maria Fedorovna Shcherbatova Porter, Robert’s wife, was known as Princess Mary and his daughter, Maria Romanovna Kikina was called “Mashinka.”
    6. Robert Ker Porter’s letters from Russia include both the Julian (O.S.) and Georgian (N.S.) dates; for cataloging purposes the Georgian dates were used.
    7. Throughout the finding aid and folders the spelling (Caulfeild, not Caulfield) of the name Henry Edwin Caulfeild and other members of the Caulfeild family has been retained.
    8. A large number of letters between the Porter family members have multiple authors and addressees. It was decided, for cataloging purposes, these joint authors and addressees would not be given separate added entries on the folders. Also, in the case of multiple authors or addressees only the first author or addressee is given the main entry and the others are noted on the outside of the folders but not in the finding aid.
    9. The decision was made, after much thought and discussion, to catalog this collection alphabetically rather than chronologically. But the Porter family often wrote each other daily and it might be necessary to request and read all the family letters rather than just those written by Jane Porter, for instance, as she might be a joint author or addressee in other family letters.
    10. References to the various writings of Jane, Anna Maria and Robert Ker Porter are scattered throughout their letters and are too numerous to receive subject entries except for the most major references.
    11. Robert Ker Porter is the subject of so many of the family and business letters it was decided not to index all of those entries separately.

    Biographical Note

    Jane Porter (1776-1850), a British historical novelist, was born in Durham, England in 1776, the third of five children born to William Porter, an officer in the British Army, and Jane Blenkinsop Porter. After her father’s death in 1779, Jane moved with her family to Edinburgh and began her education. According to all reports, she was very studious from quite a young age and was strongly influenced by the tales of chivalry and the Northern borders which she heard as she was growing up in Scotland. Throughout her life, Jane was especially close to her younger brother Robert Ker Porter (1777-1842), a noted painter, writer, and diplomat, and her younger sister, Anna Maria Porter (1780-1832), also a novelist.
    Jane Porter was primarily known for her two novels, Thaddeus of Warsaw (1804) and The Scottish Chiefs (1810) both of which went through numerous printings. She also wrote several plays, none of which were successful, and contributed articles and sketches to various publications. She was one of the first female writers in England to become a best-selling author under her own name.
    Jane Porter died in Bristol on May 24, 1850 in the home of William Ogilvie Porter, her oldest brother. According to the Dictionary of National Biography there was a stone tablet to her memory, as well as those of her brothers and sister, placed in Bristol Cathedral.

    Scope and Content

    This collection contains the papers of Jane Porter and includes the family correspondence of Jane Porter, Robert Ker Porter, and Anna Maria Porter spanning the years 1795-1841. This collection has several very strong subject points for the purpose of research. The correspondence between the family members describes life amongst the gentry and literary figures during the Regency and early Victorian eras. Their letters also make clear the financial straits the family faced and the struggles they endured to maintain their expected (and desired) place in society.
    The correspondence is also strong in the area of social customs and traditional roles of women in the Regency era, though both Jane and Anna Maria stood somewhat outside those roles as they were, with their writing, the main source of financial support for the family for many years. The letters also describe the social and economic changes in England over a span of fifty years. A number of the letters, particularly those of Robert Ker Porter, were written from Russia, Europe, and South America and provide an “Englishman’s view” of the places he visited.
    The collection does have some areas of weakness. There is a definite lack of manuscript material for Jane, Anna Maria, and Robert Ker Porter; there are no manuscripts of their most well known novels and works. Also, entire years of correspondence are lacking, especially letters from Robert Ker Porter during various periods of his life.
    The papers consist of the following series:
    1. Manuscripts and Documents (Boxes 1-4) are arranged alphabetically by author and title. The manuscripts consist mainly of notes, essays, reviews, and business documents written by Jane Porter, 1776-1850. There is also a small number of autograph manuscripts written by Anna Maria, Robert Ker Porter and others. Both Anna Maria and Jane Porter wrote poems and essays which they included in letters to various addressees; these poems and essays are noted on the outside of the folders, as well as in the Added Entries section of this Finding Aid.
    2. Correspondence (Boxes 5-52) is arranged alphabetically by author. This series consists mainly of letters written between the Porter family and a small number written by others. The letters of Jane Porter, 1776-1850, begin early in her life and end just a short time before her death, thus spanning almost her entire life. The vast majority of the letters are personal but also included are business letters regarding the publication of the sisters’ novels and articles. A large number of the business letters pertain to Robert Ker Porter: his debts, his travel books and artwork, and his diplomatic career. Jane Porter, 1776-1850, copied out the majority of these letters to send to her brother while he was traveling and living overseas.
    3. Ephemera (Box 53) is arranged alphabetically by title. The ephemera consists mainly of miscellaneous envelopes and other items. There is one folder of unidentified manuscript fragments written by Jane Porter, 1776-1850, Anna Maria Porter, and others. The Ephemera also contains the spines and labels removed from the original volumes in which the letters were bound.
    4. Oversize Manuscripts, Documents and Correspondence (Boxes 54-59) are arranged alphabetically by author. These items were removed from boxes 4-47 so the call numbers are not consecutive. Place holder cards were left in boxes 4-47 to indicate when an item was removed to an oversize box; each box label also indicates the specific oversize box or boxes to locate the items which were removed.
