Book Description

First published in 1907, this transcribed text provides insight into the social, economic, legal and political lives of the residents of Late Medieval Coventry. The text consists of records of the Coventry Leet, in one view a court held by a Lord of the Manor for the trial of petty offences, and in another a legislative body. Its records reveal the disputes settled by a succession of mayors and their juries, changing each year, between 1420 and 1455. Individual sources date between 1410 and 1441, with two earlier sources from 1251 and 1384.
