about

This second volume of persons named in English records between 1066 and 1166 follows on from its predecessor Domesday People: [Of] undoubted importance...in understanding the nature of Norman aristocratic society and the forces within it... a monumental effort. HISTORY Drawn from extensive and wide-ranging research in British and French archives, the 7500 entries in this volume provide the first authoritative prosopographical key to over 60,000 names found in English administrative documents such as the Pipe Rolls and the 'Cartae Baronum', as well as various Surveys and thousands of royal and private charters. Both volumes focus upon regional origin, family, and the descent of fees, and together they provide the most complete view to date of the people responsible for the conquest and colonization of England. Dr K.S.B. KEATS-ROHAN is Director of the Linacre Unit for Prosopographical Research and Fellow of the European Humanities Research Centre, University of Oxford.

MEDIEVAL REVIEW Remarkably useful.... A valuable research tool. An indispensable resource for anyone working on Anglo-Norman or French Society in the century 1066-1166. ALBION A very useful reference.... It will be invaluable for those seeking summary information, particularly about more prominent people. MEDIEVAL PROSOPOGRAPHY This remarkable book...is a really important work of learning. It should be much used. ENGLISH HISTORICAL REVIEW
