Nicholas Monk, the King's Messenger and the Honest Clergyman


Frances B. Troup

Trans. Devon. Assoc. vol. 31, (1899) pp. 305-325.

Prepared by Michael Steer

The clergyman Nicholas Monck (Monk), sometime Rector of Plymtree, was younger brother of the celebrated General George Monck, the Duke of Albemarle, and son of Thomas Monk of Potheridge in Devon. The 'honest young clergyman' had a key role to play in the restoration of Charles II to the monarchy when he secretly visited his older brother to determine whether or not he would lend his support to this restoration effort. Both of the Monck brothers were later rewarded by Charles II. Nicholas Monck became the Bishop of Hereford and Provost of Eton shortly before his death in 1661.
