TitlePacification of the Anglo-Scottish border: copy letters and documents
DescriptionIt contains copies of letters and other documents relating to the Commission appointed by James I for the pacification and government of the borderland of his two kingdoms. They are all in one small, neat hand, and almost in chronological order. There is reason to believe that they were made for Joseph Pennington of Muncaster, one of the Commissioners, from originals in the possession of Sir Wilfred Lawson, the most active of his colleagues, and the custodian of their papers. The name of Graham is generally given as Grayme, and Grey as Gray, but in the following calendar I have modernised these and most other proper names.
