This chapter presents an examination of how a county community developed in Suffolk in the face of aristocratic dominance. The discussions also highlight the administrative, geographical, and familial divisions within the county. One interesting development in this county community was the general county meetings, which quickly became a feature of the county's administration during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I. These meetings provided a heritage of administrative experience for their direct successor, the County Committee of the Civil War and Interregnum.

Keywords:   county community, Suffolk, aristocratic dominance, familial divisions, county meeting, Interregnum
