The court rolls of Ramsey, Hepmangrove and Bury constitute a distinctive collection of primary sources for examining and exploring the lives of ordinary people and the institutions of a rural community in the East Midlands of medieval England from the end of the 13th century to the beginning of the 17th century.
They were previously published on microfiche as part of The Court Rolls of Ramsey, Hepmangrove and Bury, 1268-1600, edited and translated by Edwin DeWindt and originally published by the Pontifical Institute of Mediaeval Studies (Toronto) in 1990 as vol. 17 of the Subsidia Mediaevalia series (ISBN 0-88844-366-8). In addition to the fiche, this book contains an extensive introduction and comprehensive index of the rolls, including people, places, and subjects.
These court rolls, together with census data, supplement Ramsey: The Lives of an English Fenland Town, 1200-1600 by Anne Reiber DeWindt and Edwin Brezette DeWindt, published by the Catholic University of America Press in January 2006 (ISBN 0-8132-1424-6).
