Administrative / Biographical History

The Eastern Association was an alliance of counties that supported the Parliamentarians during the English Civil War. This statement of accounts was presumably drawn up for Edward Montagu (1602-1671), 2nd Earl of Manchester, Major General of the Eastern Association's army, 1643-1645, from whose family papers it derives.
