The Milton House Archives - Outline

This collection, whose title derives from the house in England where its contents were maintained for almost 200 years, consists of significant portions of the papers of George Birkhead, Archpriest of England in the early seventeenth century, and of the Belson family, together with a miscellany of letters and documents pertaining in one way or another to English Catholic history between the late sixteenth and late eighteenth centuries. Among the more prominent authors of letters are Robert Parsons (or Persons), S.J., one of the first missionaries to Protestant England; Thomas Fitzherbert, agent for the English Catholic clergy in Rome; and Cardinal William Allen.
