The sealed Knot is the main website for our organization. On the site you will be able to get information about many other regiments from all over the country. You will also find many resources to help with history projects.
Croxteth Hall is the ancestral home of the Molyneux family. There are many attractions for todays family and their website may soon be updated to include historical information specific to our period. Take the children to the Farm, the adventure playground, or stroll around the country park.
Reconstructing History provides patterns for making your own clothes and is a wealth of information on different methods of constructing period garments.
The AA have a great route planner. You can use this to plan your journey to and from our events.
You can download seventeenth century fonts so that you can create literature in the correct format if you like.
You can download some historic card games that you can play alone or go online. If you download Piquet please let me know and we can play on line. Piquet was Charles and Henrietta's favourite card game.
If you see something you like in a picture, or you have an idea how something should look and you need someone to recreate it for you; go to Tod's Stuff. I can highly recommend all he makes. Although his site is mainly medieval, he has made me some lovely seventeenth century pieces.
Timelines is an excellent site for those who want a diary of events before, during and after the Civil War.
I have been watching a website develop for some time now. The project seemed such a big one to me that I thought it would eventually fail. For many years now the Samuel Pepys diary site has been added to each day. Starting Sunday January 1st, 1659 the website creator has added a diary entry every day.. Please take a look.
Ralph Josselin, the famous diarist from before during and after the English Civil War, wrote a diary from the perspective of a Parliamentarian clergyman. His simple statement that the King had been executed is chilling when read in context. Please visit the website and see for your self: The Diary of Ralph Josselin
John Evelyn's diary can be bought from most bookshops with excellent landscapes of the period. It is heavily edited and gives little insight into seventeenth century England I'm afraid. He spends much of his time traveling around Europe. The online diary however, has no pictures and contains lots of normally omitted text. Unfortunately the link is currently broken. As soon as the online diary becomes available again, I will set the link back up.
In 1607 William Camden wrote the history of Britain and a description of its major towns and landmarks, as well as comments on industry and politics. Now the whole volume can be viewed on line. The Website has been designed by Dana F. Sutton, with easy browsing in mind, and it is hosted by the University of California, Irvine: http://www.philological.bham.ac.uk/cambrit/
A clever chap called Barry Siler has analysed several period drill manuals and has come up with a complete and workable set of commands that are exemplified with excellent animations. Check out the website at: http://syler.com/
This is a paid resource set up by historians for historians to use. Many prmary source information is contained on the site such as house of commons debates and parliamentary reports. You can access that site at http://www.british-history.ac.uk
Robert Cawdrey's 'A Table Alphabetical (1604)' which is widely thought to be the oldest English Dictionary. If there are any words in the primary source sections of my website, that are uncommon, please cross reference them here by using the CTRL + F keys.
