People of the Civil Wars
Civil War Petitions contains profiles of all the people who petitioned for military welfare payments, as well as those who supported their claims and other individuals who were mentioned in the petitions and certificates. For some claimants, the petitions and certificates which survive provide details of these otherwise largely obscure individuals. For others, there are only payments details of where and when they received relief and how much money was granted to them. Famous individuals such as Fairfax and Cromwell, along with other military commanders and medical practitioners, are often mentioned in the petitions.
