Note: Characters in the Barsetshire novels are listed in A Guide to Barsetshire People (Angela Thirkell Society, 1993), and only particularly significant references to characters are given here. SEE references to characters listed as members of particular groups (e.g. clergy, teachers) indicate reference to that booklet.

Works of art and literature are listed under the names of their authors, except for those by Angela Thirkell (AT) herself.

The index is not comprehensive. Only the opening page number is given for some scenes or topics that may run on for several pages. Only some typical references are given to topics that occur frequently.

References to Three Houses, Angela Thirkell's childhood autobiography, are in bold type, thus: TH. As only the first five chapters of Three Score and Ten are by AT (this novel was completed by C. A. Lejeune after AT's death), references to that novel from chapter VI (page 143) on are given in brackets.

`A nice day in town' is a short story by AT published in London Calling, edited by Storm Jameson, published by Harper & Bros., 1942 (pages 239-56).

Baby, Mother and Grandmother
, published by Lance Thirkell, consists of extracts from AT's letters to her mother about Lance Thirkell's babyhood, 1921-25. References to these letters, and to Angela Thirkell's letters to her typist, Margaret Bird, (1950-60) give the month and year of the letters (as, 2.22 = February 1922).

BBC in the index refers to the interview broadcast by BBC Radio, 24 August 1954, between Angela Thirkell and Colin MacInnes.

The Grateful Sparrow is not included in this index.
