Summary
In 1466 a Yorkist knight, Sir Peter Legh of Lyme, compiled a survey of his halls, manors and estates in the North West of England, covering a geographical area from the river Ribble in the north to the rivers Mersey and Bollin in the south. The manuscript, written in Latin and believed to be in Sir Peter's own handwriting, amounting to 333 pages is divided into sections corresponding to each manor. Altogether some 1600 holdings are listed ranging from moated manors to individual strips in a shared furlong and more than 700 persons are identified by name. Parts of the document have previously been extracted and published, but this is the first complete transcrription and translation. It has been carried out by the Medieval Documents Research Group of the Ranulf Higden Society. -- Cover
