1680 AUTOGRAPHED Manuscript by CHARLES II. REGIMENT OF FOOT Vellum Description

Manuscript on vellum, signed by King Charles II and Lord Sunderland. One sentence revised in Charles' hand Dated 13th of July 1680, this signed manuscript appointing Henry Cheffers to Captain was written on the day that Charles II raised the 4th, or King’s Own, Regiment of Foot, known then as The Earl of Plymouth’s Regiment of Foot for service in Tangiers. Described in this document as "Our dearly beloved naturell sonne Charles" [in Charles II's hand], Charles FitzCharles, 1st Earl of Plymouth, was the illegitimate son of King Charles II of England, by Catherine Pegge. Charles was made the founding Colonel of the 2nd Tangier, or Earl of Plymouth's Regiment of Foot on the same day as this document is dated. He died of dysentery three months later without issue on 17 October 1680, aged just 23. After a number of changes of name, The 2nd Tangier Regiment became the 4th (The King's Own) Regiment of Foot when regimental numbers were introduced in the British Army in 1751. A transcript of the Document is as follows: CHARLES R Charles the Second by the Grace of God King of England Scotland France and Ireland Defender of the Faith && Our Trusty and Welbeloved Henry - - Cheffers Esq Greeting. We reposing Trust and Confidence in your Courage, Loyalty and good Conduct, do by these .... consitute and appoint you to be Captain of a Company of the Foot in the Regiment to be forthwith raised for Our service, and to be sent to Tangier under the command of Our dearly beloved naturall sonne Charles Earle of Plymouth. You are therefore carefully and diligently to discharge the duty of Captain by excercising the said Comany in Arms both officers and Soldiers and keeping them in good Order and Discipline. And we hereby comand them to ... their Captian... and follow such Orders and Directions from time to time, as you shall receive from us, our Governour of Our said force, your Collonell or other your superiour officer, according to the Rules and Discipline of War, in persuance of the Trust We hereby repose in you.... Our Court at Whithall the 13th day of July 1680 in the 32 year of Our Reign. By His Maj comand, Sunderland

About Me

After owning retail bookshops in Lucerne and Interlaken in Switzerland, as well as a online sale business, I am delighted to be back in the United Kingdom. 

 

Having studied at Oxford University in the early 1980s I was lucky enough to learn about the rare book trade by scuttling around the markets and sale houses of London at a time when it was still quite possible to discover "that find". Similarly I was able to hone my specialist interests in early photography, the history of science and Helvetica, something that I hope is still reflected in the items I offer.

 

The aim is to offer the rare, interesting, unusual, beautiful and strange. So at the very least we hope your visit to the site to be a rewarding and enlightening experience!
