MS. Gough Linc. 4
Held at the Weston Library

  • Request

Collections for a history of Lincolnshire, divided by wapentakes and then places, but with insufficient indexes. The information is given for each place under about a dozen heads and is largely drawn from old records, such as lists of Knights' Fees. The collection is of considerable extent and value. At the end are a few notes by Gough.
