The documents which form the subject of this edition, the Herefordshire muster books for 1539 and 1542, came into existence during two military and diplomatic crises. Neither lasted long.

Henry VIII’s Council, then dominated by Thomas Cromwell, called for musters throughout the country. The commissions of array represent an attempt to discover the country’s military resources.

More > endowments churches accumulated properties around the county, sometime in other counties. In the mid 1500s the properties were seized by the Crown and sold.

More > Norman village churches in England’. The church was built during the 1130s and completed by 1140, and this monograph describes and analyses Kilpeck church as a celebrated example of the work of the 'Herefordshire School of Sculpture' and therefore its context within the cultural history of twelfth century England, and as an example of the family patronage that seemingly underpins both the granting and the decoration of the church and the shaping of the landscape within which the church sits, reflects the ‘cult of family’ that was integral to the culture of lordship in the twelfth century.< Less
