Agricultural History Review, (1970), 18(1), pp.93-105.

Prepared by Michael Steer

The author asserts that one result of the preoccupation of historians with the disposal of monastic lands has been a tendency to minimize the size of the land market before 1536. His aim in the article is to attempt another approach, namely the consideration of the total land market in a single county during the period of maximum social upheaval which immediately followed the dissolution of the monasteries. He attempts to put the market for monastic and other Crown lands, generally in Devon, into perspective, and suggests that this was only a part, albeit a very important part, of a much wider land market.
