The documents printed in this volume result from a dispute in the Westminster court of Chancery between two members of the Devon family of Tremayne. At their core is a collection of 85 witness statements describing the activities of the lawyer Nicholas Radford on two days in 1438 and 1439. The witnesses range across the social spectrum from the earl of Devon to local labourers. Their detailed testimonies provide a unique insight into their daily lives, and the daily life of the city of Exeter and its hinterland in the first half of the thirteenth century.
