Event description

Description

The wives of the Bishops of London were often overshadowed but Catharine Tait, married to Bishop Tait from 1843, was a remarkable woman in her own right. Despite the personal tragedy of losing five daughters to scarlet fever, she became a pioneer amongst clergy wives. As well as running the household, she involved wealthy women in charitable work through the Ladies' Diocesan Association and introduced the novelty of garden parties to Fulham Palace.
