The Chancery Case Between Nicholas Radford and Thomas Tremayne

£10.99

Product description

The documents printed in this volume result from a dispute in the Westminster court of Chancery between two members of the Tremayne family of Collacombe over the Devon manor of North Huish. At their core is a collection of some eighty-five witness statements, providing evidence as to the whereabouts of the well-known lawyer Nicholas Radford on two days in 1438 and 1439. The witnesses range across the social spectrum from the head of county society, Thomas Courtenay, earl of Devon, to local labourers and "sack carriers", including both laity and clergy. In corroborating their evidence, the witnesses provide a unique insight into aspects of their daily lives, and, by extension, into the daily life of the city of Exeter and its hinterland in the first half of the fifteenth century. Biographical details of the individuals mentioned in the text are provided in an appendix.

Condition: Minimal wear, as new condition.
