Yorkshire Deeds:, Volume 10
M. J. Stanley Price
Cambridge University Press, Feb 14, 2013 - History - 244 pages
Published between 1909 and 1955, this ten-volume collection contains deeds relating to all of Yorkshire, from the twelfth to the seventeenth century. The deeds are of local historical interest, and provide topographical, philological and genealogical information, as well as insights into daily life. The majority of the records here are presented as abstracts, while documents in the vernacular that are of greater interest or importance are printed in full. Where possible, the documents are dated. Thorough background information and discussion of the deeds is included, as are notable physical descriptions, in particular of the seals. Each volume concludes with an index of people and places. Published in 1955, Volume 10 was edited by M. J. Stanley Price and is compiled largely from documents held by the Yorkshire Archaeological Society. It also contains many miscellaneous documents included to complete collections published elsewhere in the ten volumes.
