Rump (Purged) Parliament

Samuel Pepy's Diary 1660 Jan. 01 Jan 1660. Sunday.
Blessed be God, at the end of the last year I was in very good health, without any sense of my old pain, but upon taking of cold.
I lived in Ax Yard having my Elizabeth de St Michel 1640-1669 (19), and servant Jane Birch Servant, and no more in family than us three.
My Elizabeth de St Michel 1640-1669 (19) … gave me hopes of her being with child, but on the 31 Dec 1659 … [the hope was belied.] The condition of the State was thus; viz. the Rump (Purged) Parliament, after being disturbed by my General John Lambert 1619-1684 (40), was lately returned to sit again. The officers of the Army all forced to yield. Admiral John Lawson 1615-1665 (45) lies still in the river, and George Monck 1st Duke Albermarle 1608-1670 (51) is with his army in Scotland. Only my General John Lambert 1619-1684 (40) is not yet come into the Parliament, nor is it expected that he will without being forced to it.
The new Common Council of the City do speak very high; and had sent to George Monck 1st Duke Albermarle 1608-1670 (51) their sword-bearer, to acquaint him with their desires for a free and full Parliament, which is at present the desires, and the hopes, and expectation of all. Twenty-two of the old secluded members having been at the House-door the last week to demand entrance, but it was denied them; and it is believed that they nor the people will be satisfied till the House be filled.
My own private condition very handsome, and esteemed rich, but indeed very poor; besides my goods of my house, and my office, which at present is somewhat uncertain. George Downing 1st Baronet Downing 1625-1684 (35) master of my office.
(Lord’s Day) This morning (we living lately in the garret) I rose, put on my suit with great skirts, having not lately worn any other, clothes but them.
Went to Peter Gunning Bishop 1614-1684 (46) chapel at Exeter House, Strand, where he made a very good sermon upon these words: — “That in the fulness of time God sent his Son, made of a woman,” &c.; showing, that, by “made under the law,” is meant his circumcision, which is solemnized this day.
Dined at home in the garret, where my Elizabeth de St Michel 1640-1669 (19) dressed the remains of a turkey, and in the doing of it she burned her hand.
I staid at home all the afternoon, looking over my accounts.
Then went with my Elizabeth de St Michel 1640-1669 (19) to my John Pepys 1601-1680, and in going observed the great posts which the City have set up at the Conduit in Fleet Street.
Supt at my, John Pepys 1601-1680, where in came Theophila Turner 1652-1686 and Madam Morrice, and supt with us. After that my Elizabeth de St Michel 1640-1669 (19) and I went home with them, and so to our own home.

John Evelyn's Diary 1652 Mar. 06 Mar 1652. Saw the magnificent funeral of that arch-rebel, Henry Ireton 1611-1651, carried in pomp from Somerset House, Strand to Westminster Abbey, accompanied with divers regiments of soldiers, horse and foot; then marched the mourners, Oliver Cromwell Lord Protector 1599-1658 (52) (his father-in-law), his mock-parliament-men, officers, and forty poor men in gowns, three led horses in housings of black cloth, two led in black velvet, and his charging horse, all covered over with embroidery and gold, on crimson velvet; then the guidons, ensigns, four heralds, carrying the arms of the State (as they called it), namely, the red cross and Ireland, with the casque, wreath, sword, spurs, etc.; next, a chariot canopied of black velvet, and six horses, in which was the corpse; the pall held up by the mourners on foot; the mace and sword, with other marks of his charge in Ireland (where he died of the plague), carried before in black scarfs. Thus, in a grave pace, drums covered with cloth, soldiers reversing their arms, they proceeded through the streets in a very solemn manner. This Ireton was a stout rebel, and had been very bloody to the King's party, witness his severity at Colchester, when in cold blood he put to death those gallant gentlemen, Charles Lucas 1613-1648 and Sir George Lisle. My cousin, Richard Fanshawe 1st Baronet Fanshawe 1608-1666 (43), came to visit me, and informed me of many considerable affairs. Henry Herbert Master of the Revels 1594-1673 (57) presented me with his brother, my Lord Cherbury's book, "De Veritate.".

John Evelyn's Diary 1658 Oct. 30 Jan 1658. Saw the superb funeral of the Oliver Cromwell Lord Protector 1599-1658 (58). He was carried from Somerset House, Strand in a velvet bed of state, drawn by six horses, housed with the same; the pall held by his new lords; Oliver lying in effigy, in royal robes, and crowned with a crown, sceptre, and globe, like a king. The pendants and guidons were carried by the officers of the army; the imperial banners, achievements, etc., by the heralds in their coats; a rich caparisoned horse, embroidered all over with gold; a knight of honor, armed cap-a-pie, and, after all, his guards, soldiers, and innumerable mourners. In this equipage, they proceeded to Westminster: but it was the most joyful funeral I ever saw; for there were none that cried but dogs, which the soldiers hooted away with a barbarous noise, drinking and taking tobacco in the streets as they went.

John Evelyn's Diary 1685 Apr. 08 Apr 1685. Being now somewhat compos'd after my greate affliction, I went to London to hear Thomas Tenison Archbishop Canterbury 1636-1715 (48) (it being on a Wednesday in Lent) at Whitehall Palace. I observ'd that tho' the James II King England, Scotland and Ireland 1633-1701 (51) was not in his seate above in the chapell, the Doctor made his three congees, which they were not us'd to do when the late King was absent, making then one bowing onely. I ask'd the reason; it was sayd he had a special order so to do. The Wilhelmina Ernestina Oldenburg 1650-1706 (34) was in the King's Closet, but sat on the left hand of the chaire, the Thomas Sprat Bishop 1635-1713 (50) standing by His Ma*s chaire, as If he had ben present. I met the Catherine of Braganza Queen Consort England 1638-1705 (46) going now first from Whitehall to dwell at Somerset House, Strand. This day my brother of Wotton and Mr. Onslow were candidates for Surrey against Sr Adam Brown and my cousin Sr Edwd Evelyn, and were circumvented in their election by a trick of the Sheriff's* taking advantage of my brother's party going out of the small village of Leatherhead to seek shelter and lodging, the afternoone being tempestuous, proceeding to the Election when they were gon; they expecting the next morning; whereas before and then they exceeded the other party by many hundreds, as I am assur'd. The Henry Howard 7th Duke Norfolk 1655-1701 (30) led Sr Edw. Evelyn's and Sr Adam Brown's party. For this Parliament, very meane and slight persons (some of them gentlemen's servants, clearkes, and persons neither of reputation nor interest) were set up, but the country would choose my brother whether he would or no, and he miss'd it by the trick above mentioned. Sr Adam Brown was so deafe that he could not heare one word. S1 Edw. Evelyn was an honest gent much in favour with his Majesty.
