"The discovery of a rich series of manorial documents in the possession of the steward of the manor of Forncett in Norfolk led the author to make this econimic study of the manor between 1086 and 1565. Her work includes a comparison between an Elizaethan survey on the entries relating to Forncett in Domes day Book; the history of the demesne, describing in detail what this was and how it was managed in the reigh of Edward I, a time when manorial changes were few and insignificant. The author uses the ministers' accounts for the years 1376-78 to show how the lord had ceased forever to have the demesne lands tilled on his own account; an account of the tenants and their land, tracing concisely the situation at the beginning of the fourteenth century, as well as, the disorder and concusion prevalent town generations later." from the jacket flap.
