Abstract

A study of the experience of royal government in the three northern counties in England forms part of the AHRC-funded project, ‘The Breaking of Britain: Cross-Border Society and Scottish Independence 1216-1314’. Findings from two dimensions of the project’s work in this area will be presented in this session: a study of gentry families involved in rebellion in the 13th century, and a database of material relating to the three northern counties in central government records.The ‘macro’ evidence of the database and family focus of the gentry study will be complemented by a study of an individual rebel. By combining this range of perspectives, it is hoped that a fresh understanding of the experience of royal government in the far north will begin to emerge.
