Abstract:

Manuscripts, in a single hand, of a history of Wyatt's Rebellion and biographies of those involved in it. The first volume contains the history of the Wyatt family; a history of Allington Castle in Kent, the Wyatts' seat and residence; and a narration of the rebellion itself. The second volume is a collection of 88 biographies of the lives and ancestries of those who were concerned in the rebellion, "with those of the noblemen, Knights, and Gentlemen, who supported the government by assisting to suppress the specious but wicked designs of these conspirators." The work is prefaced by an introduction in v. 1, in which Noble offers a critical perspective on the rebellion; the authors he consulted; and his personal motivations for the project, including his situation in Kent "on the very spot where Wyatt erected his standard."

The author also includes numerous genealogies, decorated in red and blue ink. Tipped into vol. 1 is a genealogy of the Wyatt family with a coat of arms drawn and colored by "Martha Carless Noble" and another genealogy of the Astley family, while tipped into v. 2 are genealogies of the families of Pope; Southwell; and Dudley. The first volume also contains 17 drawings and engravings of people and places connected with the Rebellion, including engravings of Mary I; Mark Noble; Sir Thomas Wyatt; The inside view of the under chapel of St. Thomas within London Bridge; The Tower of London; and "Biography and History instructed by Minerva"; four drawings of Allington Castle, consisting of two pen-and-wash drawing by "Tho. Wildes. Inn Esq.", one of which is colored by "N[?] Alexander"; a pencil drawing by "Mrs. Cresswell"; and a pen-and-wash drawing by "Mark Noble, Jun." Other drawings include A view of Maidstone; Penshurst Palace in Kent; Rochester, from Frendsbury Hill; Cowling Castle; The old work built in 1219, drawn by Miss Mary Ann Carless and taken from the Gentleman's Magazine in 1753; A view of Kingston-upon-Thames; and A view of St. James' Palace. At the end of the manuscript are 9 engraved "medals and coins" of Philip II of Spain and Mary I, pasted in and annotated by Noble.
