Description: This manuscript from the manor of Methwold in Norfolk is a log of tenements, rent, shipments, and other events, including a list of "adventurers."

Tenements of a manor were parcels of land that were rented or leased out to tenants in medieval Europe, particularly in England. These small plots of land were used for farming, housing, commerce, or other purposes.

Tenements were a key feature of the feudal system, and they played an important role in the social and economic life of the manor. In addition to providing a source of income for the lord of the manor, tenements also served as a means of social control, as the lord could use the threat of eviction or other penalties to enforce compliance with his laws and regulations. Tenants were often subject to strict rules regarding their use of the land, and the lord could use their loyalty and service to maintain his power and authority over the manor.

Though this system hit its peak during medieval times, it persisted into the 1700's as evidenced by this document. However, in later years, some restrictions were placed upon them to improve the living and working conditions of the tenants.

Handling & Care Instructions: To prevent the ink from fading, store in a low light environment and keep out of direct sunlight. UV light can be damaging to antique documents. Handle with clean hands. Gloves are not suggested as they can make hand movement less precise, leading to an increased risk of dropping or ripping the document.
