Overview

Overview

Register of the archdeaconry of Nottingham, including records of prisoners in archdeacon's Nottingham gaol.
This fourth volume of Melton's register is partly Latin text, partly calendar, of its section for the archdeaconry of Nottingham. Melton continues to be a dedicated diocesan, probably the last archbishop to undertake four visitations of its deaneries; he also visited its religious houses, ordering reforms of finances and morals. The register shows his prison at Nottingham crowded with criminous clerks, some connected to the notorious Coterell and Folville gangs; in contrast, ordinances for seven new chantries reflect the piety of other inhabitants of the shire.

REGINALD BROCKLESBY was until his retirement Senior Archivist in the Nottinghamshire Archives Office.
