The Fulham Papers 17th – 18th Centuries From Lambeth Palace Library
During the late 17th and 18th centuries, the Church of England exerted considerable influence on the American ‘colonies’. This is reflected in the Fulham Papers, which consist of correspondence and other documents (Missionary Bonds, Ordination Papers, pamphlets etc.) to the Bishop of London from Canada, the thirteen states of the USA and the West Indies.
As well as dealing with ecclesiastical affairs, the Papers are of great social, political and economic interest.
“…should be purchased by libraries wanting to acquire original source material in Colonial American history… Any institution offering a Doctoral or Masters program in American history should not hesitate to add this collection to their holdings”. Microform Review, January 1973.
