Research Statement

My research interests are in the political and social history of late medieval England and Ireland, with particular emphasis on the government of the English lordship or Ireland in the Lancastrian period;  the formation of royal policy for Ireland in the context of English politics and concerns elsewhere; and individuals and families whose careers and interests bridged the Irish Sea.   Current projects include a book on The Lancastrian Lordship of Ireland and a paper on the Pastons' clerk and chaplain, James Gloys (d.1473).
