This is a comprehensive study of minor landowners--the gentry--in one county of fifteenth-century England. It looks at all aspects of their lives, including marriage, the family, how they ran their estates and how they made friends and enemies, in an often very turbulent century that saw the reigns of the three Lancastrian kings (Henry IV, Henry V, and Henry VI), the Yorkist Edward IV, Edward V and Richard III, the first Tudor, Henry VII, and the Wars of the Roses.
