Example text

It is in his management of local political society that Henry VII might be seen as most distinct from his predecessors and this has come in for most of the recent criticism of him. Traditionally the crown relied primarily on the nobility to enforce its will in the localities but in counties where there were no resident magnates, for example in Kent or Nottinghamshire, the gentry had taken the lead and the crown had established direct links with them by recruitment into the royal household or by using the offices available on the crown lands, such as on the duchy of Lancaster estates.

Essential to this are the essays by G. L. 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).

Moreover, ‘the rise of the Tudor state’, itself, implies that something new had been created, either from nothing, or from the ruins of something that had earlier fallen, or on top of something already built and now being extended. This examination recognizes that central government had changed significantly by the middle of the sixteenth century, and whatever one chooses to call these changes, they were fundamental and could not be reversed. England eventually emerged from over a century of reformation and revolution a Protestant rather than a Catholic realm in which central governmental power had shifted from the full sovereignty of the crown in partnership with the nobility and the church to the sovereignty and initiative of the king-in-parliament, an elemental reorganization of the body politic.
