Secretaries of State: State Papers Domestic, Edward VI
|Title:||Secretaries of State: State Papers Domestic, Edward VI|
The archives of the principal secretaries of state during the reign of Edward VI (particularly Sir William Petre and Sir William Cecil) as they survived in official custody. The papers are evidence of the great variety of business passing through the secretaries' office, and include much material put before the Privy Council.
The series comprises both individual papers now bound as volumes and documents that were originally volumes in their own right. They were brought together in the State Paper Office in the nineteenth century for the purpose of publication in calendar form.
The majority of the papers were rebound in date order in the 1860s.
