The Children of the New Forest

by Frederick Marryat

The children of aristocratic Colonel Beverley, a Cavalier officer killed at the Battle of Naseby, are believed to have died in the flames when their house is burned by Roundhead soldiers. However, they escape and are raised by Joseph Armitage, a gamekeeper in his cottage in the New Forest. The story describes the children's adaptation to the life of simple cottagers.
