Cicely Veronica Wedgwood

Cicely Veronica Wedgwood (1910-1997) was a British historian. Born in Northumberland, she was educated at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford, and became a specialist in the English Civil War and early 17th century history. This brought her into contact with Brigadier Sir Peter Young[?], with whom she came to be closely associated. Her biography of Thomas Wentworth, 1st Earl of Strafford[?] was published in 1935, and she followed it up with Oliver Cromwell (1939) and William the Silent (1944). Other notable works include The King's War (1958) and The King's Peace (1955). She was created a Dame of the British Empire in 1968.
