This chapter discusses the distribution of power within the county of Suffolk. From the reign of King Henry VIII until Queen Elizabeth I, the administration of power within this county is examined, studied, and described. It is said that by the last half of Queen Elizabeth's reign, East Anglia had become an area made safe for county gentry. In Suffolk, there were three distinct groupings: the gentlemen of the Liberty of St. Edmund, and the noble families of Cornwallis-Heveningham and Wentworth-Wingfield.
