East Coker is the village in Somerset from which Eliot's ancestors departed for the New World in 1669; Burnt Norton refers to the Gloucestershire manor house erected on the foundation of a house that burned to the ground in the seventeenth century; The Dry Salvages is a group of rocks off Cape Ann, and so harks to the poet's New England roots, and Little Gidding was the manor in Huntingdonshire that was the destination of poets' pilgrimages as the site where Nicholas Ferrar founded an Anglican religious community in the mid-seventeenth century.
