Academic Director and General Editor: Christine Carpenter This volume follows its predecessor numerically, but it initiates a new series to complete the calendars of medieval Inquisitions Post Mortem. The growth of interest in the late-medieval nobility and gentry and their estates, and the significance of IPMs for such research, makes it especially important that the gap for the years 1422-85 should be filled. The volume includes a wide-ranging general introduction to the series by Dr Christine Carpenter, which considers the history and production of IPMs and their use as sources. Innovations include the addition of all jurors names, which it is hoped will encourage further interest in the prosperous villagers who characteristically sat on these juries, and details reflective of administrative processes. The volume covers the first five years of Henry VI's reign, a period of minority and of continuing war in France. Notable tenants include Edmund earl of March, Ralph earl of Westmorland and the de la Pole heiresses.
