William Cecil, Ireland, and the Tudor State

Oxford University Press

This chapter uses the relationship between William Cecil's father, Richard, and William Wise of Waterford, both of whom were royal servants at the court of Henry VIII, as an entrée to an exploration of society and government in the lordship of Ireland in 1520, the year of William Cecil's birth. It introduces Ireland as a territory bound to the crown of England, but which was legally and constitutionally divided between areas of English and Irish rule. This chapter will provide the necessary historical background and the political, social, and legal framework for understanding Ireland and its deepening relationship with England in the Tudor period.

Keywords:   Henry VIII, William Wise, Richard Cecil, Waterford, lordship of Ireland, Englishry, Irishry, clans, Thomas Howard, earl of Surrey, Piers Butler, earl of Ormond
