The 'Bohun of Fressingfield' Cartulary

2012

The documents edited here tell a story of aspiration and social mobility in late medieval Suffolk. Edmund Bohun, the younger son of a prosperous yeoman from Fressingfield, managed through good contacts and good luck to obtain a position in the centre of administrative and political power in London, thence achieving armigerous status as well as acquiring considerable amounts of land, both in and round the village itself and elsewhere in Suffolk. Edited by Bridget Wells-Furby.

The Charters of Stanton, Suffolk, c.1215-1678

2009

Edited and introduced by David Dymond. The village of Stanton is in many ways a typical Suffolk village. What is not so typical is the survival of a considerable and largely coherent collection of charters and similar texts, which together provide a rich and detailed picture of aspects of life in this village from the thirteenth to the seventeenth centuries.

17

The Pakenham Cartulary for the Manor of Ixworth Thorpe, Suffolk, c.1250–c.1320

2001

Edited and introduced by S.D. Church. This volume was a new departure for the Suffolk Charters in printing a laymen’s cartulary rather than one of a religious institution. The cartulary documents the process by which the lands of Sir William Pakenham were divided in order to provide for his sons.

Dodnash Priory Charters
