I am very grateful to the Foundation for Medieval Genealogy for an nine-month extension of its current funding for the Abstracts of Feet of Fines project. This should enable me to complete the unpublished fines for the reign of Edward I (1272-1307).

David Lewis recently contacted me with details of his new book, "The Danzey Pedigree originally established at Somerby in Leicestershire". The first chapter explores the roots of the family in the 15th century, and the account is documented with more than a thousand source citations. The book is available in both digital and printed formats, and further details are available on the author's Facebook page.

New material

In the Feet of Fines section, abstracts of fines have been added for Lincolnshire (1283-1304) (642 fines).
