Event Navigation

On Thursday 24th October 2019 at No 5 Salisbury Road starting at 2:00pm Dr. Charlotte Young will explore the developing legislation governing the process of sequestration, and the challenges associated with ensuring its legal and effective implementation across England and Wales

Sequestration was the process by which land, money and goods were confiscated from delinquent families during the English Civil War. This tactic was primarily utilised by the Parliamentarians as a method of reducing the revenue available for Charles I to draw upon, and simultaneously finance their own military campaign, but the Royalists also launched their own sequestration policy in the mid-1640s, albeit on a smaller scale.
