Medieval Family Life

The Paston Family Papers have long been a subject of both literary and historical interest. They are Britain’s first surviving records of private correspondence, describing everyday life in East Anglia during the Wars of the Roses. Additionally, this resource includes four other valuable collections relating to medieval families in Essex, Oxfordshire, Yorkshire, and Warwickshire, UK, ca. 1400-90. There are also a variety of further resources, including family trees, an interactive map, and a wide range of visual sources. The collection focuses on five major family letter collections: Paston Family Papers; Cely Family Papers; Plumpton Correspondence; Stonor Correspondence; and Armburgh Family Papers. UK source libraries include: the British Library, London; Chetham's Library, Manchester; the National Archives, Kew; and West Yorkshire Archives.
