The Sea Adventure The Additional Sea Adventure to Ireland of 1642, dismissed by Karl Bottigheimer as a ‘floating mockery of the conquering expedition the adventurers had desired’, was the direct response of the Adventurers in London to King Charles I’s declaration, on 14 April 1642, that he would travel to Ireland and take command of his forces. 1 The Sea Adventure was the first large military force raised by supporters of parliament that was deployed against a garrison flying the king’s colours, uniting what had been separate conflicts into the Wars of the

This chapter presents the early memories of Anne Clifford during the period of 1650-1675. This noble and pious Lady, after a happy and retired life in the northern parts, built and repaired several churches, chapels, bridges, and other structures of public benefit, making acts of charity and goodness the delight of her life. Anne died in her castle of Brougham in Westmorland the 22nd day of March 1675 in the eighty and seventh year of her age. She was buried in the vault in Appleby church to whose virtuous and excellent memory, her succeeding posterity owe many great obligations. Her autobiographies reveal her joys and griefs within a vivid description of seventeenth-century life. They reveal a personality that was vulnerable and determined; charitable and canny.
