Records of Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire in the 11th to 13th Centuries


Cat No.:   GB0504:

The actual title of this book The Feudal History of the County of Derby (compiled by Yeatman, Sitwell & Foljambe, 1886) is somewhat misleading. It contains details of very ancient records of both Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, and the chapters each have headings Collections for the History of Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. Essentially it covers the period from the 11th to 13th centuries.

This is a volume of transcriptions and abstracts from rare and ancient documents relating to families and their pedigrees and holdings of land, (they are somewhat like the entries in the Domesday book, but in much more detail), and also includes some lists of named tenants and their rents. This is where it also becomes immensely valuable for those studying the family history of the normal people.

One cannot say that this book is easy reading, but it is very comprehensively indexed for both names (many thousands of them) and places.
