Description

The Liber benefactorum of Ramsey abbey, compiled in the mid-twelfth century, incorporates much valuable information on the early history of Ramsey, complementing material from other fenland houses. Pt I provides a twelfth-century view of the historical background; Part II covers the period from the foundation of Ramsey to the deaths of Ealdorman Æthelwine and Bishop Oswald in 992; Part III covers the period from 992 to 1066; and Part IV covers the period after the Conquest. Some of the material in Parts II and III is derived from tenth- and eleventh-century vernacular documents then preserved in the abbey’s archives.
