The papers of Captain Henry Stevens, waggon-master-general to King Charles I
Historians of the Civil War, and especially those interested in the Royalist Army, will be particularly grateful to Miss Toynbee for the skill and erudition she has lavished on this apparently slight collection of documents which under her editorial cafe becomes a source of real importance. These papers provide an illuminating introductory essay on the office and activities of a Royalist Waggon-Master and an Oxford Commissary General. Together with the notes on other lesser known individuals this is a model of careful scholarship and an important contribution to the history of the Oxford garrison and of the Civil war in the south and west during 1643-4.
