A thoroughly enjoyable read. I finished the book slowly because I did not want it to end. M N Smith's attention to details made me feel I was part of Heather's gang and going through experience with her.

Godolphin, Volume 6.
A very fun, fast paced and well put together book. Looking forward to Heather's return. Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Heather Foxton is an amazing book, a well balanced recipe of fantasy, adventure, and a small pinch of the startling cruelty of some people. An outstanding story.

Back to top. Godolphin is not known to have done anything as the Commons quickly passed the Exclusion Bill. The king then wanted Godolphin to carry a message to the Commons expressing his determination to dismiss it, but Godolphin refused. The bill was defeated in the House of Lords, but this made that the Commons determined to block any further taxes.
On 15 February Sidney was again elected in Helston for the Oxford parliament, that sat from 21 March - 28 March After that that Charles II had no more parliaments. This meant he had to leave his seat as M. On 6 February Charles II died. He was succeeded by James II, who strated his reign with the illegal act of continuing to collect the customs that had been granted 'for life' to Charles II.
Godolphin did not oppose, and acquired James' confidence.
For refusing to become a Catholic, Rochester was dismissed on 4 January , and a new commission was formed. On 8 December these met the invading army at Hungerford.
William would not give the commissioners a private audience, but negotiations did start. Meanwhile James II fled 5. He was often said to have been an expert in public finance. By this might have been true on account of his experience at the treasury alone. Another source for his expertise would have been the family's including his own interest in the tin mines. These mines were very big business, and also required knowledge of large scale financial operations. Besides having expertise Godolphin was probably incorruptable.
At a time when public office was the way to enrich oneself this was a rare characteristic. Because he was so closely associated with the governments of Charles II and James II this came as a bit of a surprise. Indeed his financial expertise probably played a role in this, as all other members of the commission were replaced. In March a new commission did not include Godolphin, but did include the experienced Sir Stephen Fox.

On 15 November a new commission saw Godolphin as First Lord of the Commission of the Treasury, which was a definite sign of favor. In October he resigned because of the trial of John Fenwick, which would be more dangerous for him if he was in government.

Sidney Godolphin cemented his alliance with the Earl of Marlborough by marrying his son to Marlborough's daughter in spring After the Tories returned to power near the end of William's reign, Godolphin again became First Lord on 9 December He resigned again on 30 December When Queen accede to the throne, Godolphin's influence gained an enormous because of the high favour of his friend John Churchill, who would soon become Duke of Marlborough.
Godolphin was made Lord Treasurer again on 8 May , and would not quit this post till 11 August Besides being remembered as an English Prime-minister, Godolphin is also remembered for his activities in horse-breeding. When looking at this career path one might be tempted to think that being Lord Treasurer is more important than being First Lord of the commission of the treasury.
It is, but the office of Lord Treasurer was often vacant, meaning that a powerful First Lord of the Commission could also control the treasury.
