As a historical researcher and documents specialist, who has worked for several years at The National Archives on the Completion of the Calendaring of the Elizabeth Patent Rolls, I hope to go through and search the surviving documents after the dissolution of the monasteries for details about works and repairs carried out at St Stephen’s, so that we can work out what happened to St Stephen’s after the dissolution, in order to fill in the gap in our knowledge during the period from about 1540 to 1780. I also hope to find out similar information about the Parliament Houses, both the upper house and the lower house.
