THE ENCLOSURE OF ST MARY’S, NOTTINGHAM: WHY DID IT TAKE SO LONG?

Archives: The Journal of the British Records Association (2021), 56, (2), 75–98.

Abstract

An account taken from the extensive minutes, 24 big books remaining of the original 32, of Nottingham’s enclosure. Of the day-to-day work of the three commissioners dealing with the maps, the land sales to provide the money for the work, the current use of the land, burgess parts, tithes, claims, objections, roads, sewers, recreation grounds, the final allotments, with their work occasionally praised but more often tetchily criticised by the council who had laid down the parameters for the commissioners to work to in the act they had themselves made.
