No. 13: The Governance of Rutland 1614-1664 – by Ian E Ryder An analysis of how Rutland was governed in the unsettled times of the seventeenth century, based on surviving Justices of the Peace and Lieutenancy archives. These enable the author to show how Rutland’s ruling elite managed criminal law and the poor, handled an outbreak of plague, maintained the militia, impressed men for military service, ensured the free operation of markets, and organised the collection of taxes. This account covers the reign of Charles I and then the period of the Civil War and its aftermath, showing the impact of these events on life in Rutland. Although the majority of Rutland’s major landowners had supported the king, its parliamentary minority was able to control the county through outside support. Very many Rutland individuals are listed in the surviving records, too many to include in the printed work, and their details are being made freely available on-line on this website. (A4, 130pp, with appendixes and index. £15.00 (members £12.00))
