Using papers kept at her husband's family home, Claydon House, she produced Memoirs of the Verney Family during the 17th century. These were corrected and abridged by Margaret M. Verney, and published in two volumes in 1904.
Lucy Hutchinson (1620-1681) was the author of a memoir of her husband entitled Memoirs Of The Life of Colonel Hutchinson. John Hutchinson was one of the signatories of the death warrant of Charles 1st, and after the Restoration he was imprisoned, and died in captivity. The memoirs written by his wife were printed by a descendant in 1806.
