History of Parliament Research

My work at the history of parliament has concentrated on the MPs who sat for Ireland and Scotland during the protectorate, as well as the members for the English counties of Dorset and Cornwall. In addition to the MPs who sat for London, Westminster, Middlesex, I have recently revised biographies for who sat for Devon, Shropshire, Herefordshire and Gloucestershire.
