Tottenham Quakers

The Griselda Aggs Fox Collection

These are authentic Quaker outfits worn by the Hanbury and Aggs families, and gathered together by Griselda Fox. Her husband was a Lloyd Fox, from Tottenham. The family line still continues in Tottenham. Griselda's grandson, Nick Putz is a member of Tottenham Meeting. His sister, Cathy cares for these outfits. As children, they dressed up in them for special Quaker gatherings. Now the outfits are becoming very fragile and even just showing them can create much wear and tear.

The exact dates of origin are not known as the outfits were handed down from child to child. Most of the clothes are considered to be from about 1830-1870, but some are much older. As Friends were concerned with living simply clothes were made well and often worn decades past their fashion.
