Description

The Frere MSS form part of the huge collection of Norfolk documents made by the antiquary and herald Peter Le Neve (1661-1729) and used by the County historian Francis Blomfield.

The calendar covers only Holt Hundred but gives a flavour of the whole.

The muster roll, of about 1523, again covers one Hundred only.  It lists men selected to serve in the local militia and their equipment and assesses those rich enough in land and goods to be taxed for the purpose.

The ‘voluntary’ gift of 1662 was a device of Charles II’s ministers to avoid going to parliament for money and the list is of well-to-do Norfolk men approached.

 

With Introductions by B. Cozens-Hardy, F.S.A and Miss P. M. Williams.
