Their papers shed light on aspects of gentry life that are largely left in the dark in other fifteenth-century family letter collections. * MEDIEVAL PROSOPOGRAPHY *
A careful and well researched analysis of this family, one that reveals much about the social and economic milieu of the minor aristocracy in late medieval England. * MEDIUM AEVUM *
Dr Noble has done us a great service in drawing the medieval historian's attention to the Stonors. * SOUTHERN HISTORY *
There is sensitive and careful work here, all the more effectively presented for its depiction of the Stonors against a broad historiographical background. Noble summarises the latest thinking on the gentry, on their economic fortunes, and on lordship and kinship in order to provide the setting for her own findings. * ARCHIVES *
