Example text

The expansion of the royal household’s role in government and greater intervention in local affairs remained a constant feature of Tudor government. 17 K. B. 18 There were enough aspects of Henry VII’s rule to make the advent of the Tudor dynasty in 1485 a significant new start in English history. That is not to say that things changed overnight: we know that there were significant continuities of personnel and institutions, men like John, Lord Dynham, Henry’s first treasurer of England between 1486 and 1501, were inveterate survivors who moulded themselves successfully to the very different politics of Edward IV’s, Richard III’s and Henry VII’s reign.

Harriss ‘Medieval government’ (1963) and D. A. L. Morgan, ‘The king’s affinity in the polity of Yorkist England’ (1973). Most recent accounts have stressed the continuities through the period 1450–1509; important in this regard is the work of B. P. Wolffe, especially his The Royal Demesne in English History (1971), but see also S. J. Gunn, Early Tudor Government (1995). However, for recent suggestions that the reign had important, distinctive features see Grummitt, ‘Henry VII, chamber finance and the “New Monarchy” ’ (1999).

Bindoff, Tudor England, p. 66; Lander, ‘Bonds, coercion and fear’. For discussions of the role of the nobility see Pugh, ‘Henry VII and the English nobility’ and the case studies by Luckett (‘Crown patronage and political morality’) and Cunningham (‘Henry VII, Sir Thomas Butler and the Stanley family’). Quoted in Luckett, ‘Crown office and licensed retinues’, p. 237. For Henry’s Great Councils and their link with parliament see Holmes, ‘The Great Council in the reign of Henry VII’. Watts, ‘ “A New Ffundacion of is Crowne”: monarchy in the reign of Henry VII’.
