The Society was founded in 1930 to encourage the study and preservation of Norfolk records and to publish editions of documents relating to the history of the county.


Since 1930 we have published annually a transcript of a significant and sometimes unusual manuscript or collection of manuscripts.  This series now covers a time-span ranging from the twelfth to the twentieth centuries.  All volumes are carefully edited, comprehensively indexed and includes introductions explaining the background to the documents they present.  They are attractively produced and uniformly bound in hard covers.
