Susan M Wright, Derbyshire Record Society vol 8, 1983. 287pp inc index, 3 ills. The first full-length scholarly study of any aspect of medieval Derbyshire – a time when the county had no major lay or ecclesiastical landowner, and thus the local gentry dominated politics and society. There is much here for the family historian.
