A New History of Penrith
Book 3 - Penrith in the Stuart Century 1603-1714
Michael A. Mullett
Penrith in the Stuart Century, 1603-1714 is the third volume of a new and comprehensive history of Penrith, planned to run from the earliest times to the present day.
The century between the Union of the Scottish and English crowns in 1603 and the Act of Union in 1707 brought increasing peace and stability to the Borders and increasing prosperity to a merchandising town like Penrith. However, there was famine in the town in the 1620s, civil war throughout the country between 1642 and 1651, and a serious epidemic in Penrith.
Michael Mullett’s History of Penrith is likely to remain the standard history of this important northern town for many years to come.
