Abstract
G. Burnet, J. Swift and H. Bolingbroke saw by their own eyes some most important events of the end of 17th and beginning of 18th centuries. They were full of the desire to leave the record of them to learn the lessons given by history. Fulfilling this aim, the authors were in different extent under the influence of the atmosphere of the Enlightenment, as well as under their political inclinations. Nevertheless, their historical writings determined the future development of English historiographical tradition.
