John Philipot’s Roll of the Constables of Dover Castle and Lord Wardens of the Cinque Ports, 1627


With a Foreword by Sir Winston Churchill. Introduction and Notes by Francis W. Steer.

Published: 1956

Stock code: 711

Price: £26.00

The only published transcript of Philipot's Roll, the original of which lies in the East Sussex Record Office. Since Philipot's document is at variance with corresponding lists (e.g. Statham, Darell, Lyon and Hasted), its publication for a wider audience was a signficant step both for scholars of the history of the Cinque Ports and for those with an interest in the county generally. Woods, B54.
