Rental Book of The Cistercian Abbey of Cupar - Angus (Volume 2) Rev. Charles Rogers 1880


Cat No.:   GB0925:

Apart from their topographical interest and importance in relation to the origin of many notable families in central Scotland, these records of the Abbey of Cupar must be regarded as of no ordinary historical value. Certainly no other work contains such ample details relating to Scottish husbandry and rural affairs during the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries.

In these pages we learn how the Pre-Reformation clergy administered their estates, and otherwise conducted their affairs ; while in the various details is presented a portraiture of social and domestic life among that class of persons which then and long afterwards formed the bones and sinews of the nation.
