The Records of the Borough of Northampton - Volume 1

£30.00

Product description

This book is Volume 1 of the Records of Northampton published in 1898 and is numbered 163 of 500 printed. This volume covers the history of Northampton from the Domesday Book to when the book was published.
From the introduction by The Lord Bishop of London:- INTRODUCTORY. '"THE information contained in the following pages is, in the main, gathered from the town muniments, excluding the charters and customary, which have been so fully treated of in the first volume. In studying the records of so important a borough as Northampton, not a little disappointment is experienced in rinding them exceedingly meagre up to the close of the reign of Henry VIII. There are, for instance, no records or rolls ot even the briefest description, with regard to the town proceedings earlier than this date, whilst as to rolls or minutes of the various town courts held within the walls, there are none extant until quite recent years. The terrible fire of 1675 was, in all probability, the cause of the loss of a considerable number of the town records. That the corporation were at one time possessed of a large series of records, made evident from the endorsements on many old grants and other deeds still extant, to the effect that these deeds had been enrolled on " The Rolls of the Memoranda of the Court of Northampton."
