“A chest with three locks: the Archives of the College of St George since 1352”

St George’s Chapel Archives is home to a stunning collection of documents relating to the history of the Chapel, the properties it once owned and the Order of the Garter, which has its spiritual home at St George’s. These documents include accounts and deeds dating from as early as the 12th century; maps, plans and photographs; and collections of the personal papers and correspondence of individuals associated with the Chapel over the centuries. In this talk, Archivist and Chapter Librarian Kate McQuillian will explore the history of the collection, the characters who helped to develop it and some of its star attractions.

    Archivist & Chapter Librarian at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle

    Kate arrived in Windsor in 2013 to take up the post of Assistant Archivist at St George’s Chapel. She has been Archivist and Chapter Librarian since 2018 and also sits on the committees for the Cathedral Archives, Libraries and Collections Association (CALCA) and the Archives and Records Association South East Region (ARA SE). She trained in Archives and Records Management at the University of Liverpool and, prior to that, studied Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic at the University of Cambridge. She developed a love of archives while volunteering in the Gonville & Caius College Archives as an undergraduate. Outside work, you can find Kate thoroughly enjoying life in Windsor: she has twice appeared in the Windsor Castle Staff Panto, sings in Windsor’s Anglican churches’ choir and dances with Windsor Morris.
