History of Parliament Research

My work at the History of Parliament currently focuses on the bishops who sat in the House of Lords from 1660-1715. These include a range of prominent churchmen and political activists. I am also working on the rights of bishops to vote in the Lords’ trials of capital cases, and on the role of the episcopate in Wales.

Research and Publications

My research interests include the history of Quakers in England, Wales and the Channel Island
