Rounded Rectangle: The English Civil War around Lincolnshire

Rounded Rectangle: The Bourne Archive


During the great upheaval of the 1640s, Lincolnshire lay on the diffuse frontier between the Parliamentarian heartland in London, the Home Counties and East Anglia while, in the Midlands, the tide of war ebbed and flowed but the Royalist strongholds of Newark and Belvoir persisted,just outside the county.

I have collected transcriptions of material on this site and made links to others because I found the combination of the recognisable emotions and 360 year-old ways of thinking, interesting. It is all part of what made us what we are.

This page simply provides links to others on the Lincolnshire Civil War theme. Some are on this site; others elsewhere.
