About Catherine


Catherine Curzon is a historian of the 18th century. Her work has been featured on the official website of BBC History Magazine, and in publications such as All About History, Who Do You Think You Are?, and Jane Austen’s Regency World. She has spoken at venues including Kenwood House, Wellington College, the Royal Pavilion, the National Maritime Museum and Dr Johnson’s House. Her first play, Being Mr Wickham, premiered to sell-out audiences in 2019. The play was co-written by its star, Adrian Lukis, and will be performed internationally in 2020/21. 

Catherine holds a Master’s degree in Film and when not dodging the furies of the guillotine, can be found cheering on the mighty Terriers. She lives in Yorkshire atop a ludicrously steep hill with a rakish gent, a relaxed cat, and an excitable dog.

Hello Catherine. Don't know how I've managed not to trip over your wonderful site before. As you know, I've been writing (yet another) Waterloo novel in time for next year and WISH I'd found you earlier. In all the time I was researching, I never found anything quite so atmospheric as this. Congrats!!!

Catherine Curzon said...

Good evening to you. Thank you for your very kind words, another Waterloo novel is always welcome here in the salon, it is an absolute pleasure to read your kind words!

I have stumbled across your wonderful site and I am charmed beyond words by it. It has now joined my list of must reads, feeding my obsession for all things Georgian. Thank you for the interesting and amusing insights into that most thrilling of times.

Catherine Curzon said...

Thank you! I'm really pleased that you enjoy the site; the more people obsessed by all things Georgian, the better!

Most Esteemed Catherine
Have received copy of your book, Kings of Georgian Britian. Thank you.
George II is one of my heroes, Dettingen 1743.
BTW did Jacqueline Reiter tell you that she served as a gunner in my crew
while her father was assigned to the British embassy in Wash DC?

Catherine Curzon said...

I'm so glad it has arrived; I do hope you enjoy dipping into the world of the four Georges. Lovely to meet a George II fan too, he seems a rather neglected king to me!

A gunner, eh? She hasn't mentioned that!

Christina Boyd said...

Thank you for inviting me to subscribe to your lovely site.

Dee Jane said...

Most esteemed Madam, what a wonderfully extensive list of books you have written and feature on your website. I have sent my husband a link to your site hinting on what I'd like for the next few Christmases and birthdays to come. Oh the glorious Georgians! From your devoted and humble servant, Diana

Catherine Curzon said...

Thank you, Diana! That's really made my day!
