The Military Survey of 1522 for Babergh Hundred

Volume Number: 28

Published: 1985

Edited and introduced by Dr John Pound. The purpose of this survey was to establish the capacity to supply arms and armour, but it formed the basis of the subsidy for the king's wars in France. The hundred includes the thriving towns of Glemsford, Melford, Lavenham and Boxford, and comparative light is thrown on the prosperity of their inhabitants.
