About

I am a TECHNE funded PhD student at Royal Holloway, University of London studying sequestration during the English Civil War. I am particularly interested in local and national policy administration, access to legal assistance, and the impact on women and children. Linked with this, I am also researching the pre-trial career of John Bradshaw in the 1640s.
