The Bowes of Streatlam, County Durham: The Politics and Religion of a Tudor Gentry Family

Author: Christine M. Newman

This book traces the fortunes of the Bowes of Streatlam across the years of the Tudor regime. It examines a Durham gentry family attracted into the sphere of royal service, particularly in the fields of border administration and defence. The family's remarkable attachment to Protestantism, in an age when much of northern society remained notoriously conservative in religion, meant that its religious idealism came into conflict with its political ambitions on more than one occasion.
