Thomas Hardy

On January 11, 1928, English novelist and poet Thomas Hardy died at the age of 87. At the time of publication, some of Hardy’s greatest novels, including Far From the Madding Crowd, Tess of the d’Ubervilles and Jude the Obscure, were met with strong negative outcries from the Victorian public for his frank treatment of sex. Although his work was heavily criticized, Hardy became widely famous in English literature.

    Thomas Hardy married my ancestor, Florence Emily Dugdale, on 10 February 1914. I see this is missing from your tree.
