TitleTHOMAS MURRAY PAPERS
DateEarly 17th century
DescriptionCorrespondence and papers of Thomas Murray (1564-1623), Tutor (from 1605) and Secretary (1617-1621) to Charles, Prince of Wales, afterwards Charles I. The bulk of the Murray papers (MSS. 663-669) are concerned with European politics, especially the acceptance by Frederick V, Elector Palatine and son-in-law of James I, of the crown of Bohemia in 1619, and the subsequent conflict which marked the opening of the Thirty Years War. Many of the papers were sent to Murray for the attention and political education of Prince Charles. Also included are papers relating to the Prince's finances and the affairs of his Council (Murray was appointed keeper of the Prince's privy seal and of the seal of his Council in 1615, see MS. 940 item 36). Included too are original papers of Sir Henry Savile (1549-1622) as Provost of Eton College and of Murray as his successor as Provost of Eton from 1622.
