Overview

Overview

The second and final volume of inquisitions for the reign of Henry V.
This volume of the Calendar of Inquisitions Post Mortem completes the inquisitions for the reign of Henry V. The period covers Henry's second invasion of France and his third and final campaign there, brought to an end by his death at Vincennes in 1422. Inquisitions were taken after the deaths of several prominent casualties of the wars, including several tenants in chief who held lands in many counties. Of particular interest for tenurial and economic historians, settlements of property are recited and most estates minutely described and valued. Apart from the inquisitions there are the usual analogous documents such as assignments of dower and proofs of age and, in one instance, a partition of land between coheirs. Women appear holding land not only as tenants in chief but jointly with their husbands and as dowagers. Families include Ros, Clifford, Fitzwaryn, Scrope, Arundel, Courtenay, Dymmok, de la Pole.

J.L. KIRBY and JANET H. STEVENSON are both contributors to the New Dictionary of National Biography.
