History of Parliament Research

Originally a historian of Warwickshire gentry, I moved southwards and outwards to lawyers, clergy, diplomats and refugees.  Since joining HoP from the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, where I was a research editor for the 17th century, I have worked on Wiltshire and Oxfordshire MPs, notably Nathaniel Fiennes, John Selden, and memorialists Edmund Ludlowe and Bulstrode Whitelocke.  Complementary projects include Oxford 1630–168
