LISTS OF THE HOLDERS OF CERTAIN OFFICES

I N general these lists have not been continued beyond the outbreak of the civil war, after which there were often two sets of officials, one royal, one parliamentarian. Moreover parliament frequently appointed committees rather than individuals to carry on the work formerly done by the great officers of state.

keeper.
