PARLIAMENTARY HISTORY

Part 1: Manuscript Minutes, Committee Books and Voting Records of the House of Lords, c1620-1714

"The manuscript minutes of the House of Lords contain some of the most explosive material of all (that which the House sought later to suppress). The Committee Books and Proxy Books are a vital source for understanding the first age of party."
Professor John S Morrill, Selwyn College, Cambridge.

This project brings together four important central sources for the study of parliamentary history, the state and society for the period 1620 to 1714.  Namely:

  • The manuscript Minute books of the House of Lords, 1620- 1716;
  • Proceedings in the Lords Committees, 1661-1741;
  • Proxy Records, 1625-1755;
  • Proceedings of the Committee for Privileges, 1660-1762.

This is the first time that the Committee Proceedings have ever been published and none of these classes have been published in their entirety before.
