I am dealing with a document dated 1360. This was a survey of the Extent of
Manors of Mottram in Longdendale and Tintwistle, of rents and services due.
This survey came about as a result of the Black Prince becoming Lord of
these Manors in 1357.
I am basically just trying to glean information about surnames and places,
but this phrase keeps cropping up.
From William de Wha(r)ell (Warhill) 12d
From the same for
ward and renegeld 1 and a half d
It is sometimes spelt as rene yeld and sometimes as one word.
Is this simply the first amount due to the Lord of the Manor and the second
part an item of central taxation due to the crown?
