Welcome to the Suffolk Records Society

For over sixty years, the Society has been committed to producing books that bring Suffolk’s rich historical literature to a wider audience. Covering a period of 700 years these volumes of letters, diaries, maps, accounts and other archives have made a major contribution to historical studies of the county and are a useful tool for both professional and amateur historians, as well as being a source of information for anyone interested in Suffolk’s history.

Every year, the Suffolk Records Society produces at least one new book throwing light on some fresh aspect of the county’s history. There are two series of volumes, the General Series, for which we publish a regular annual volume, and the Charters Series, for which we publish occasional volumes of Suffolk charters and cartularies.

The Society’s members share a passion for Suffolk and its history and it is their support and subscriptions that have made possible this remarkable opening up of the historical landscape. Come and join us!


Our latest volume has now been published.
