Abstract

This volume consists of an edition, in translation, of four groups of documents held at East Sussex Record Office, Lewes, relating to the manor of Mote in Iden, and dating from 1442 to 1673. They are manorial accounts, dating from 1464 to 1484; a court roll of the manor, 1442-1551); a rental of the manor, compiled in 1478; and a survey of 1673. The text of the records themselves is preceded by an introduction which sets out their historical context. It examines the descent of the manor, its purchase by Sir John Scott, his career and character and the management of his demesne and household at Mote. The later descent of the manor, the history of the archive and the diplomatic of the documents are then discussed. The final part of the introduction considers the use of stock-deeds and the nature of manorial tenure in the Weald of Sussex, and sets out the editorial conventions used in the text. Appendices provide examples of stock-deeds in calendar form, a prosopography of the leading individuals mentioned in the accounts, identify the location of the tenements of Mote manor and provide a glossary of archaic or obscure words.
