History of the Rebellion & Civil Wars History of the Rebellion & Civil Wars

Ref: 1119
ISBN:
The History of the Rebellion and Civil Wars in England Begun in the Year 1641

(6 Vols.)

Edward Earl of Clarendon

Late Lord High Chancellor of England, Privy Counsellor in the Reigns of King Charles the First and Second

Published in 1707, and written by someone who not only experienced the civil war, but who held a high position at the time.

From the preface:

"This history was first begun by the express Command of King Charles the First, who having a desire, that an account of the calamities, God was pleased to inflict on the unhappy part of his reign, should be reported to posterity by some worthy, knowing and honest man, thought that he could not appoint anyone more adorn'd with such qualifications, than this author."

What more can we say? Apart from the fact that this is the original account of the English Civil War.

The Register Books of the Fourth Classis in the Province of London 1646-1659 The Register Books of the Fourth Classis in the Province of London 1646-1659

This is a most unusual book.

During the English Civil War, Presbyterian ministers and church councils were established in London's churches. These people had to be proposed and vetted (to ensure that they were sympathetic with the new government!) Furthermore, they had to be seen to be promoting the new government in their sermons, and giving thanks and blessings for the various victories of the time.

This book contains transcripts of the proposals for the new ministers and church councils of each of those churches, plus the records of their support for the government, and letters relating to the lack of the right words being used in their sermons!

Wonderful fascinating stuff for the historian of the English Civil War, plus of course, containing lots of information and names suitable for the family historian.
