Law and local society in the time of Charles I: Bedfordshire and the Civil War
Although Bedfordshire did not feature significantly in the battles of the Civil War, local families were drawn into the conflict and life for the whole community was affected by events on the national scene. This volume explores the evidence of those subtler trends and publishes some of the sources in extenso including Sir William Boteler’s carefully balanced addresses to the grand jury at Quarter Sessions in 1643-7, inventories of the belongings of ‘Royalist delinquents’ and lists of Catholic recusants of the time.

Ross Lee grew up and was educated in Bedford, and is a history graduate, former history teacher and retired barrister and mediator. He was working on a second volume for BHRS with the working title Soldiers and Civilians: Bedfordshire during the Civil War and Interregnum before his death in 2019.
