"Annis 1651 & 1652"
Keywords:Oliver Cromwell, Commonwealth Government, Charles I, English history
AbstractSchlatter describes a seventeenth century manuscript in the Rutgers Library called "Annis 1651 & 1652" which consists of 482 large folio pages. Each entry is a reference to a transfer of real property. A large number of the entries record the sale or lease of lands which had once belonged to the Crown, the Church, and prominent Royalists who had fought for Charles I. The Commonwealth Government had confiscated these lands and in the years 1651 and 1652 a large proportion of them were sold. The entries here show that Oliver Cromwell and other important Commonwealth officials were prominent buyers of the land which they had confiscated.
