We are delighted to share translations of the Bratton Clovelly Manor Rolls, comprised of ten rolls covering over 60 court sessions between 1377 and 1684. This was the biggest project we have undertaken in this one-place study and our sincerest thanks to Brooke Westcott for his fine translations of the rolls done over a period of several years. In the introduction to the rolls, you will find overviews and other articles to help you to understand what you might find in the rolls. They are full of names, places and events that help to bring alive the medieval period in this parish. We hope you enjoy them and we’ll continue work on analysing them in the coming years.
