The Legal Quays: Sir William Paulet, First Marquis of Winchester

Dr Alan Bryson

Sir William Paulet (c.1483-1572) is perhaps unique in his long public career at a time of great political and religious turmoil. He held positions under Henry VIII, Edward VI, Mary I and Elizabeth I, notably as one of the judges for the trials of Sir Thomas More and the alleged accomplices of Anne Boleyn. Indeed, it was of Sir William Paulet that Elizabeth I commented, "for, by my troth, if my lord treasurer were but a young man, I could find it in my heart to have him for a husband before any man in England."

Dr Alan Bryson of the University of Sheffield will survey the influence of Sir William Paulet with relation to the Port of London.

This is a part of the Tudor Ports of London series celebrating the centenary of the Port of London Authority (PLA). Other lectures in the series include:
     Richard Hakluyt: London's role in navigation and history
     Mary Rose: The First Ship of our Standing Navy
     The Livery Companies in Tudor London
     Merchants and Heroes: London's history in the time of John Stow
The final event will be a conference at The Museum of London in Docklands on the 16th of May:   The Tudor Port of London: An Archaeological Investigation
