Ann Walker in the Diaries Project

Ann Walker in the Diaries is a collaborative project that will find and log all the references to Ann Walker, her extended family and her residences mentioned in the diaries of Anne Lister. The project launched on 13th September 2020. There are currently over 25 contributors who are involved in writing transcriptions, finding entries already transcribed, doing administrative tasks and entering data. The project is coordinated by In Search Of Ann Walker. If you are interested in joining the project – there are many different kinds of roles – please contact us at

How will Ann Walker in the Diaries Project work?

Phase 1 of the project is recruiting contributors and setting up systems for the entry of data

Phase 2 of the project is beginning to enter the data from the Diaries, this is a long term ongoing phase.

Phase 3 of the project is developing innovative ways to display and search the database and continuing to enter data from the Diaries.

Phase 4 of the project is the completion of an accessible public database that can be used by all those who want to learn more or research Ann Walker.

Who is involved?

This project would not be possible without the contributors who give their time and energy to bringing Ann Walker out of the shadows and into the spotlight.
