Cornwall in the Age of Rebellion

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The recently discovered 'St Trudy fragment', as it has been dubbed, sheds new light on the hitherto shadowy events in Cornwall in 1688, the year of the so-called Glorious Revolution, when Jonathan Trelawny was one of the 'seven bishops' imprisoned in the Tower of London for 'seditious libel', revealing what may have been an undercurrent of popular discontent.
