The British Empire and its effect on Plymouth

William Morice

William Morice had been a Parliamentarian but was instrumental in negotiating the return to power of Charles II. Morice was related to General Monck who held sway over the all important army and whose permission was required to allow a restoration of the monarchy. The King was certainly appreciative of William Morice's role and showered him with offices and influence. Having said that, Morice grew disillusioned with the antics of the King and retired angrily at the King 'debauching the nation.'
