Sir John Wittewronge (1618-93) was squire of Rothamsted. The Introduction covers his family history, political career and other aspects of seventeenth century Hertfordshire life. The diary gives a picture of the climate in a small part of the county at a time when Europe was experiencing the Little Ice Age, including the winter of 1683/4, the coldest on record, together with some details of crops and household matters.
