Suffolk and the Tudors

This chapter discusses the differences between Queen Elizabeth I's reign and that of her predecessors. The important people who surrounded the reigning monarch are highlighted in this chapter. The effects of the rise of a new monarch in Suffolk are discussed as well. Unlike other gentries in Suffolk, the gentry of east Suffolk seemed to have been more ready to seek the rewards of office at the royal court. One significant fact provided in this discussion is that the group that provided the largest number of knights of the shire was also that with the closest and most enduring contacts with the Elizabethan court and central government.
