Abstract

This edition of the surviving financial accounts of Charles I's viceroy of Ireland, Thomas Wentworth, earl of Strafford, and his close associate Sir George Radcliffe, provides new information on Strafford's complex financial activities. These accounts shed light on his sources of income, including customs revenues and payments from the exchequer, and provide much more evidence of his expenditure, including on land purchases. They reveal the extent of his borrowing to finance an investment in the tobacco monopoly. These accounts also reveal something of the complex networks that supported the interests of an English lord deputy of Ireland.
