The Trials Of John Fowke
A link post of the story so far
I am scheduled to present the following paper at the Southern Historical Association conference in Baltimore today. It is not about John Fowke. However, as I kept researching the topic intending to write a thesis based on the paper, I noticed this very interesting fellow lurking around every corner of English Civil War London. Once I opened The Court Minutes of the East India Company, I found him right where I was looking for a gunpowder plot device. I have been struggling through Chancery Court documents ever since.

The grueling work of document interpretation has been slowed by the distractions of war and work this year, but there are finally fruits coming ripe on the vine, and they will be juicy.
