Withering on the vine: the connectivity between the people of Lincolnshire and their monastic houses, 1500 to 1540
Hodgkinson, Brian Wilfrid (2013) Withering on the vine: the connectivity between the people of Lincolnshire and their monastic houses, 1500 to 1540. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
This thesis is a study of how the Lincolnshire population interacted with their monastic houses during the period 1500 to 1540, when the Tudor Church was witnessing considerable transformation. Lincolnshire was chosen because of the substantial number of religious houses, and the abundance of available sources, especially surviving wills on which the majority of the research was based. Data extracted from these testaments will uncover the destination of patronage not only towards monasteries, but also parish churches, the cathedral, religious guilds, charity to the poor and for the upkeep of the infrastructure. Maps, graphs and tables will illustrate from which of the numerous parishes patronage originated and its eventual destination.
