ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

I should like first to acknowledge the debt I owe to Lord Fitzwilliam who allowed me access to the archives at Wentworth Woodhouse. His courtesy has enabled me to draw on many unpublished letters. When the reference " Wentworth Woodhouse MSS." is given, the source will be a hitherto unpublished document.

I am also deeply indebted to the Duke of Rutland who allowed me to inspect his magnificent Muniment Room at Belvoir Castle, from which I derived some excellent matter-notably some previously unpublished remarks of Strafford on the scaffold.

Lord and Lady Allendale have also shown me the greatest courtesy and assistance, and I am most grateful to Mr. E. E. Hawkes for his constant assistance to me during some difficult researches.

I am also grateful to Mr. Jervoise of Herriard, Rants, and Lord Saye and Sele of Broughton Castle, for allowing me to visit their houses and inspect their archives.
