This bonnet probably belonged to Mrs Fletcher of White Farrows Farm in West Hallam, Derbyshire. She was the donor's great-grandmother and she came from a generation of farmers. It is typical of the style of bonnet that women wore in the countryside during the period 1800-1900 to protect their eyes and complexion from the sun.
