Sir Francis Palgrave FRS, born Francis Ephraim Cohen, (1788 – 6 July 1861) was an English historian. Palgrave was called to the bar in 1827 (after a long period working for solicitors 1803-1822). He is best known for his work with what is now the The National Archives, and his numerous publications. In 1822, he had suggested publishing the national records which suggestion was approved, and from 1827 to 1837, he edited a series of volumes. These historical documents focused on medieval history. His works include A History of England (1831), The Rise and Progress of the English Commonwealth (1832), An Essay on the Original Authority of the King's Council (1834), Truths and Fictions of the Middle Ages: the Merchant and the Friar (1837) and The History of Normandy and England (1851-64, four volumes). The last two volumes of this work were published after his death. Palgrave is also considered the founder of the Public Record Office. He was appointed Deputy Keeper of HM Public Records (or the reconstituted and reorganized Records Office) in 1838, holding that position until his death. In this position, he issued a series of twenty two annual reports. He was knighted in 1832, and was known in his day as an antiquarian. Ref Z7 Size: 408pp Plus 8pp Adverts.
