First published in 1965, this book is a study of the feudal and economic development of a village from Norman times to the nineteenth century. Dr Chibnall has reconstructed the history of Sherington in north Buckinghamshire from little-known documents in the Public Records Office together with local and private records. After introductory chapters on the pre-Norman period Dr Chibnall gives a chronological account of the villages development. Some of the topics discussed are furlong names, the Domesday return, the impoverishment of the manorial families in late Tudor times, the yeomanry, and the effects on the villages economy of enclosure in neighbouring villages. Dr Chibnalls use of his various sources gives a closely integrated and continuous history of an English village which will be a model for social, agricultural and economic historians.
