Opis: Trevelyan Papers - Collier J. Payne
Excerpt from Trevelyan Papers: Prior to A. D. 1558
They not only relate to the incidents and aspects of society at various dates, to the alterations in manners and opinions, and to the tenure and changes of landed and other property, but to some of the most striking events of our national history.
Regarding all these we shall hereafter have to enter into detail; but, in the meantime, we may refer to the several wills and inventories, which must interest antiquaries and the students of improvements or variations in social position, as well as to the original household-books of two of our sovereigns (Henry VIII. and Edward VI.) the existence of which was, we believe, until now unknown. These throw new and strong light upon the demeanour and character of public men of that period, and especially upon all that relates to Wolsey, in connection with the fatal question of the divorce, most of which information has been hitherto wanting, and cannot fail to attract interest, and to fix attention.
We ought not to postpone, until the appearance of the second part of this work, the expression of our obligations to Sir Francis Palgrave and T. Duffus Hardy, Esq. as well as to other gentlemen of the Public Record Department, for zealous and valuable assistance.
