New website for Court of Chivalry

Richard Cust and Andrew Hopper have now released an updated website and database for their Court of Chivalry research project. Take a look at British History online: www.british-history.ac.uk/no-series/court-of-chivalry/intro-court

The Court of Chivalry database was created through a collaboration between the Centre for Reformation and Early Modern Studies and the Institute for Textual Scholarship and Electronic Editing, both at the University of Birmingham, and the College of Arms in London.

Funding for the project was provided by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and the research and editing of documents has been carried out at Birmingham by Professor Richard Cust and Dr Andrew Hopper.

There is a companion volume to this web site, containing an account of the court’s history and summaries of the cases for this period: R.P.Cust and A.J.Hopper (eds), Cases in the High Court of Chivalry, 1634-1640 (Harleian Society, new series vol. 18, 2006)
