Court Roll of a manor of Milton Abbey

This is a snippet from a court roll for the manor of Sydling St Nicholas which was then held by Milton Abbey. This one is dated 11 Jul in the 8th year of the reign of Richard II which can be read in the top line.

We have a great deal of information about the manors and the tenants of Milton Abbey in the 14th century, but if we could translate some of these court rolls we would have a much fuller picture of what life was like for the tenants and servants of our Benedictine abbey.

Please get in touch if you would like to help us.
