Abstract

Abstract copyright UK Data Service and data collection copyright owner.

This database was collected as part of the research project Feeding the City (II) : London and its Hinterland c. 1300-1400. The aims of this project were twofold. Firstly, to examine the demands for foodstuffs and fuel generated by London in the later fourteenth century and the impact these demands had on the production and distribution of agrarian products within the metropolitan region. Secondly, to compare these results with those previously generated for the early fourteenth century by the research project Feeding the City (I) : London's Impact on the Agrarian Economy of Southern England 1250-1350.
Main Topics:
Manor name, period covered by the account as stated and lord's name if stated; production and disposal of arable crops; livestock types and numbers including gains and losses during the accounting period; production and disposal of crop and livestock products (malt, wood, hay, wool, hides, dairy produce); sales of agrarian products (including pasture, pannage, farms of animals); purchase of agrarian products; carriage of agrarian products; vehicle types; costs of threshing grains.

Please note: this study does not include information on named individuals and would therefore not be useful for personal family history research.
