Centre and Locality Some of the changes apparent in the government of the localities and the dynamic between locality and centre have already been touched upon. It is in his management of local political society that Henry VII might be seen as most distinct from his predecessors and this has come in for most of the recent criticism of him. Traditionally the crown relied primarily on the nobility to enforce its will in the localities but in counties where there were no resident magnates, for example in Kent or Nottinghamshire, the gentry had taken the lead and the crown had established direct links with them by recruitment into the royal household or by using the offices available on the crown lands, such as on the duchy of Lancaster estates.

Two recent textbooks on latemedieval England offer interesting but opposing views of Henry from a medievalist’s point of view: Tony Pollard’s Late Medieval England, 1399–1509 (1999) is reasonably positive about the reign while a hostile account of Henry can be found in Christine Carpenter’s The Wars of the Roses (1997).

See especially Gunn, Early Tudor Government for this approach. Carpenter, Wars of the Roses, ch. 11. The symbolism of Henry’s reign is discussed in Anglo, Images of Tudor Kingship, ch. 2 and Gunn, Early Tudor Government, ch. 4. Bindoff, Tudor England, p. 66; Lander, ‘Bonds, coercion and fear’. For discussions of the role of the nobility see Pugh, ‘Henry VII and the English nobility’ and the case studies by Luckett (‘Crown patronage and political morality’) and Cunningham (‘Henry VII, Sir Thomas Butler and the Stanley family’).
