The 1660s were a time of turmoil in England.
Cromwell had been defeated; Charles II, who was sympathetic to the Catholics, was restored to the throne; the Dutch declared war on England; the Plague raged; and the Great Fire of London destroyed half the city of London! Our hero, Cyril – upon the death of his father, Sir Aubrey Shenstone – inherits nothing except his father’s title. But he is honest and hardworking, and he begins to work as a bookkeeper for various London tradesmen.
Join courageous and quick-thinking Cyril as he uncovers the plots of thieves, diverts a fire-ship in a sea-battle, serves as a doctor’s assistant during the Plague, and even prevents the murder of one of his friends. Despite being wounded in the sea-battle, and later contracting the Plague, he survives all; and he finally receives back – as a gift – the estates that his father had lost.
