Roger Turvey wrote the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography entry for Sir John Perrot (1528-92), Lord Deputy of Ireland from 1584 to 1588, and his aim here is, as noted on the front cover, to "restore a great Elizabethan who hailed from Wales to his rightful place in history. In February 1589, some months after his return from Ireland, Perrot was elevated to the English privy council, but then suffered a spectacular downfall, being charged with treason in 1590. He was tried in April 1592.
