Abstract

The English Civil War, which divided even families by the sword, expunged not only the life of William Gascoigne and many of his compatriots: it also wiped out much of the record of their lives and circumstances. Some of the new material that has been examined above—sparse though it is—helps us to start rebuilding this record.
