Get to Know Us!
We want to hear from you!
At the heart of the charity's activities are the aspirations of its founding and current trustees. Together we advance heritage preservation and education through the conservation, appreciation and study of the life and times of the Wriothesley, Earls of Southampton (1505-1667), with added reference to the advancement of Shakespearean knowledge as it relates to Henry Wriothesley, 3rd Earl of Southampton, William Shakespeare's sole dedicatee.
Please contact us if you have any questions about the Shakespeare Southampton Legacy Trust (SSLT). We look forward to hearing from you
In 2017 a multi-institutional initiative was convened by the Shakespeare Southampton Legacy Trust to discover, centralise and share, for the benefit of the nation, an online catalogue of books, manuscripts, records of historic interest, pictures, photographs, and objects of antiquity, with particular reference to the life and times of the Wriothesley, Earls of Southampton (1505-1667) and Shakespeare. SSLT continues to forge relationships with leading archives with Wriothesley holdings; harnessing the power of the internet to create a centralized catalogue/research repository of digital resources, complete with citations guiding researchers to the original manuscript collections.
As an independent charity, SSLT looks to its supporters worldwide for funds to pursue its objectives. These are research, education, and the preservation of the Wriothesley Southampton legacies. Join Lord Montagu in paying it forward in service to "the living record of their memory".
