This is a page from an atlas that belonged to William Cecil Lord Burghley, Elizabeth I’s Secretary of State. Burghley used this atlas to illustrate domestic matters. Here is a list of the principal gentlemen with their places of residence in the "Est wardenrie of England", the "middle marches of England", the "Scottish Est marches", and the "Scottish west marches". The inclusion of information such as this in the atlas shows how Burghley was interested not just in the geography and topography of an area, but also in the people who inhabited it.
