This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you.

In the preface to the last volume, I stated that the issue for 
1906 would deal with the Quarter Sessions Records for the 
reign of James I. But the time taken in the preliminary work 
of flattening, preparing, and binding several thousand documents 
has made it necessary to put off the production of this work for 
another year. Mr. Green kindly came to my assistance, and in 
its place has provided a fourth volume of the valuable Pedes 
Finium for the first half of the fifteenth century. This particular 
period has, for reasons given in the preface to Vol. XX, hitherto 
been somewhat neglected, and it is hoped that, in conjunction 
with the first volume of Mediaeval Wills, students of local history 
will be considerably aided in their researches. Judging from a 
wide, perhaps a superficial view, the tendency at this date was 
for land to become concentrated in fewer hands, owing to the 
ruin of the smaller proprietors consequent on the depreciation 
caused by the Pestilence in 1348-9. Another cause was the 
system of matrimonial alliances whereby the magnates sought to 
extend their power and influence in the state. 

The Quarter Sessions Records, so far as they have been 
examined, are even richer in many details of local and social 
history than might have been imagined. The records already 
in print of the counties of Derby, Devon, Hertford, and 



Worcester have shown the nature and importance of the 
information contained therein, and Somerset will not fall behind. 

When the cartularies of Athelney and Muchelney were 
printed in Vol. XIV, and a close search for the lost cartulary of 
Cleeve Abbey had proved useless, it was considered that this 
class of documents (with the notable exception of Glastonbury) 
had been worked out But this summer a cartulary of the 
Priory of Minchin Buckland came to light, the very existence of 
which was unsuspected. By the kindness of the owner a 
transcript of this valuable document has been offered to the 
Council, and it will be printed at some future date. 

The subscription list is still a cause of anxiety, as it seems 
impossible to check the slow progress of decay. 

Among new subscribers are the Biblioth^que Nationale, Paris, 
and the University Library, Toronto, who have also obtained a 
complete set of the volumes already issued. It is probable, with 
the materials of study supplied for research, that the history of 
the County stands an excellent chance of being thoroughly 
investigated, and the distinctive and interesting features made 
known.

preface* 



The first point to which attention may be drawn here is the 
large increase in the number of manors dealt with, some of 
them being now unknown. With this comes for the first time 
the curious warranty against some expected claim of certain 
abbots, a position not clear save possibly when remembering the 
story of Robin Hood, where a knight having borrowed money 
on his estate, the day for payment arrived, when the abbot, 
sitting ready, says to his men : " but he come this yeke day, 
disheryte shall he be." The knight then enters, but the abbot 
supposing he would not pay, " lothely on hym gan looke and 
vylaynously him gan call." The first warranty is in 1427, 
perhaps a shadow of coming events. 

The chivalers decrease in number, but the knights largely 
increase. An alphabetical list of these is given, as having a 
strong interest for many. 

Then for the first time appears the title of esquire, the first 
so described being James Durburgh in connection with land at 
Wydecombe and Wyleton. The exact intention is not 
explained, but the position implied some service or commission 
under the crown, as in fact it should do to-day. The son of a 
knight, as now, was an esquire, the sons of Walter Rodney 
being both so described. Some ceremony, too, seems to have 
once been used and the king created by the gift of a silver 
collar. In an old ballad — " The Tanner of Tamworth " — we are 
told:— 

" * A coUer, a coUer,' our king gan cry, 
Quoth the tanner, * It will breed sorrow,' 

* Be not afraid, tanner,' said our kin^, 

* So here I make thee the best esquire 
That is in the north countrie.' " 



xviii preface. 

Also for the first time, but for twice only, appears the status 
of gentleman. In one case William Forster, senior, is a 
" gentilman," but William junior is a husbandman. 

The lordship of Waysford mentioned had no connection 
with Somerset It was, in fact, Wexford, and came through the 
Pembroke family to the Greys. In course of time by a division 
or settlement of lands the estate conferring the title passed to 
the Talbots. In 1446 the Earl of Shrewsbury is found so 
described, and his successors claim the title still, though there 
seems never to have been either a creation or a patent. 

There may be some interest in the coming of Sir Richard 
Chokke at Stanton Drew. In his own cases noted he did not 
sit as a justice. John Inyn (the pronunciation of Onion) was 
also a judge. 

Fine No. 66, p. 187, is nearly the same as No. 90, the latter 
being necessary apparently because in the first the rights of the 
heirs of Alianor were overlooked. This is the only difference 
save that a second and heavier payment was exacted, or at least 
is here recorded. 

The words gorse and heath as translated may not necessarily 
be exactly so, but may be possibly broom or briars or any waste 
rough growth. 

The appearance of the name of Chaucer must be noticed as 
something towards the claim or argument that the poet was of a 
Somerset family. 

The usual guides to Rath give the origin of the name of the 
Cross bath to the time of James II., when the queen was 
supposed to have been made fruitful by its waters and a cross 
erected in the bath to commemorate the supposed event. It 
will be seen this idea must be given up as the name appears 
here in 1456. 

An orchard is mentioned in 147 1, and in 14 14 eight acres of 



^Preface. xix 

roses. From the name Hosewyfe or Husewyfe we get our 
Husey. One man is called cosmopolitanus. 

By the use of north, south, etc., as a prefix, a place name 
becomes separated and indexed far apart. The plan, however, 
has been retained, as also other various spellings, as it is always 
unwise to tamper with an index. 

Certain of the documents or parts of them being illegible, 
gaps occasionally occur, but by good fortune some of these have 
been filled from an unexpected source, too late met with, hence 
small slip of emendations.
