British borough charters, 1042-1216 by Adolphus Ballard( Book )

21 editions published between 1913 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adolphus Ballard (1867-1915) was an English historian specialising in the medieval history of the borough. This volume, first published in 1913, was the first major examination of borough charters from the early medieval period. Ballard analyses an extensive collection of municipal documents and charters dating from before 1216 to understand the stages in the origin and development of boroughs, their mercantile and jurisdictional privileges and the relationship of burgage privileges and finances to those in other boroughs. The first half of the book discusses these topics in detail, with three supplementary essays concerning the essentials of the borough, its development as a legal entity, and comparisons with borough developments in other European countries which provide additional historical context. The second half gives the Latin text and English translations of the collection of documents analysed in the first part

This volume is a continuation of Adolphus Ballard's study of medieval borough charters, British Borough Charters 1042-1216. After Ballard's death in 1915, completion of his work was undertaken by Professor James Tait, (1862-1944) and first published in 1923. Tait follows Ballard's structure from his previous work and divides this volume into two parts. In the first part Tait analyses a comprehensive collection of borough documents and charters dating from between 1216 and 1307 to examine changes in the development of boroughs, burgage and mercantile privileges, and the effect of the growth in trade and trade regulation during this period. Differences between borough charters in the twelfth and the thirteenth century are also discussed. The second half of this volume provides extensive examples of borough documents in Latin, with English translations, including examples of borough formation, jurisdictional, mercantile and tenurial privileges and the development of public services
