(p.210) Appendix: The Weston Hall Library
Susanna Jennens did not leave a list of the books she owned. What follows is an inventory of works in English at Weston Hall published before Mary Leapor's death. Some books from this period have been excluded since they appear to have been added to the library by subsequent owners of the house. Not all of the books in this inventory were certainly in the library during Leapor's employment in the house or during her subsequent friendship with Jennens. Moreover, it is believed that some of Jennens's books were removed from the house after her death. There is no reason to doubt, however, that most of these books did belong to Jennens, and that Leapor had access to them.
