On 30 Jun 1178, Pope Alexander III prohibited the establishment of any new markets in the hundred and a half of Clacklose, Norfolk, in which Downham Market was situated (W.H. Hart and Rev P.A. Lyons eds., Cartularium Monasterii de Rameseia (London, 1886), ii, p. 137). Market town c.1600 (Everitt, p. 474).
M (Grant: other) gr 1129, by K Hen I to Rainald A of Ramsey and his M (Regesta, ii, no. 1585). A supposed grant of the market to Ramsey abbey by K Edw the Confessor is almost certainly a post-Conquest confection, possibly put together after K Hen’s grant of 1129 (F.E. Harmer, Anglo-Saxon Writs (Manchester, 1952), no. 61 and pp. 249–52, 476–7; W.H. Hart and Rev P.A. Lyons eds., Cartularium Monasterii de Rameseia (London, 1884), i, p. 220). A spurious charter of K Hen I, dated 1109x11 or 1115x23, confirms to St Benedict of Ramsey and A Aldwin and the M their liberties in the market of Downham, which pertained to Wimbotsham, as the charters of the king’s predecessors testified (Regesta, ii, no. 1411). Another spurious charter refers to a market at Downham ‘which belongs to Wimbotsham’ (Regesta 1066–87, no. 220). On 26 Apr 1139, Pope Innocent II confirmed the market to A Guaterus of the monastery of St Benedict at Rameseia [Ramsey abbey]. He issued another confirmation on 27 Jan 1140 (W.H. Hart and Rev P.A. Lyons eds., Cartularium Monasterii de Rameseia (London, 1886), ii, pp. 143, 155). On 22 Oct 1200, K John confirmed the market at Downham to the A of Rames’ (RCh, p. 76).

FAKENHAM 5919 3297. 1334 Subsidy £91. The priory of St Stephen was founded as a hospital in the time of K Hen I, at Hempton; it was also known as Fakenham (Medieval Religious Houses, p. 159) In or soon after 1241, K Hen III granted Fakenham (which he had recently recovered from the earl of Arundel) to his mother in law, Beatrice countess of Provence, either for life or at the king’s pleasure. Beatrice evidently held the manor in 1244. It passed to Beatrice’s daughter, Qu Eleanor [of Provence] either in 1265, when Beatrice died, or sooner. On 24 Dec 1279, K Edw I confirmed Qu Eleanor’s grant of Fakenham to Guy Ferre and his wife Joan. After their death it was to revert to Eleanor, or to the Crown (M. Howell, Eleanor of Provence (Oxford, 1998), pp. 292–3; C. Parkin, A History of Norfolk, vii (London, 1807), p. 93; CRR, xvi, nos 1395, 1626; RH, i, pp. 454, 520; CPR, 1272–81, p. 355; E.L. Cox, The Eagles of Savoy (Princeton, 1974), pp. 118–20). Market town c.1600 (Everitt, p. 474).
M (Grant: other) gr ante 28 May 1286, by Qu Eleanor [of Provence] the king’s mother to Guy Ferre. On 28 May 1286, the justices in eyre were ordered to cause the market to be replevied (restored following confiscation) to Guy Ferre until the quinzaine of Michaelmas next. Guy had been granted the market by Qu Eleanor the king’s mother and it had been confirmed to him by the king. The market had been taken into the king’s hands after the commencement of the eyre because it was held contrary to the inhibition of markets by the justices (CCR, 1279–88, p. 396). It is not clear when Qu Eleanor granted the market to Guy, but it could have been at the same time as she granted him the manor. The market may have been established earlier.
F (Charter) Tues in Pentecost week (Easter dep); feria gr 23 Dec 1201, by K John to brothers of the hospital of St Stephen next to the causeway of Fakenham [Hempton priory] (RCh, p. 84).

The town’s herring fair probably originated in this period and had become very important by the 1230s. Men from the Cinque Ports were active at Yarmouth before 1100 and established rights of juristriction over the herring fair. The men of Hastings had rights and property at Yarmouth by 1158 and a court there by 1215. K Hen III confirmed the laws of Great Yarmouth on 26 Oct 1272 (CChR, 1257–1300, p. 185; A. Saul, ‘Great Yarmouth in the Fourteenth Century: a study in trade, politics and society’ (Oxford DPhil thesis, 1975), pp. 146–50; K.M.E.

Saul, ‘Great Yarmouth in the Fourteenth Century: a study in trade, politics and society’ (Oxford DPhil thesis, 1975), pp. 146–50, 331–2; K.M.E.

KING’S LYNN 5617 3198. Borough 1204 (BF, p. 139). 1334 Subsidy 500. Lynn probably grew up on areas of new land raised out of the estuary of the Great Ouse by the activities of salters, between the inlets of Millfleet and Purfleet. During the twelfth century it expanded rapidly as a trading centre and by the early thirteenth was one of the principal ports of England. King’s Lynn was incorporated in 1524 (D.M. Owen, The Making of King’s Lynn, Records of Social and Economic History, ns ix (London, 1984), pp. 6–9; BF, p. 140; CPR, 1476–85, p. 131). Bishop’s Lenn was held by the bp of Norwich. Market town c.1600 (Everitt, p. 474). Fair 1587, 2 Feb (Harrison, p. 392). See also D.M. Owen, The Making of King’s Lynn, Records of Social and Economic History, ns ix (London, 1984).
M (Prescriptive: borough) Sat; recorded 1101x19, mercatum, held by M of Holy Trinity, Norwich [Norwich cathedral priory]. Bishop’s Lynn on Gaywood marsh was probably an early site of trade after the Norman conquest; a ch dedicated to SS Margaret and Mary Magdalen was established here and granted to the M of Norwich cathedral priory. In 1101x19, Herbert, bp of Norwich granted the M of Norwich cathedral priory the Sat market which was held in the new parish created by the bp on Gaywood marsh. In 1107x09, K Hen I granted William de Albini, the king’s butler, half of the market of Lynn. Owen has suggested that in return, William de Albini may have surrendered his right in a rival market at Wootton marsh (D.M. Owen, The Making of King’s Lynn, Records of Social and Economic History, ns ix (London, 1984), nos. 2, 69, pp. 6–9). A fourteenth century exemplification of this charter states that it was made by K Hen I, just as K Wil II had granted it (Regesta, ii, no. 911). Post–1109, a charter of William d’Albini, earl, mentions toll here and ‘in all my demesnes and vills where a market is known to be held’ (D.M. Owen, The Making of King’s Lynn, Records of Social and Economic History, ns ix (London, 1984), no. 71). In 1129x33, K Hen I confirmed the market and port of Lynn to Bp Everard of Norwich as fully as his predecessors had held it under K Wil I and K Wil II (Regesta, ii, no. 1853). Owen has suggested that this may relate to a second market, founded by the bp in the Newland area. It may be early evidence for the later Tues market (D.M. Owen, The Making of King’s Lynn, Records of Social and Economic History, ns ix (London, 1984), p. 11). This market was held near St Margaret’s priory.
M (Prescriptive: borough) Tues; recorded 1222–23. The Tues market developed in the Newland area. It is possible that the confirmation of K Hen I of the market and port of Lynn to Bp Everard of Norwich in 1129x33 is early evidence for this Tues market (D.M. Owen, The Making of King’s Lynn, Records of Social and Economic History, ns ix (London, 1984), p. 11). Beresford dates the establishment of this second market to 1146–74 (Beresford, pp. 467–8). On 9 May 1394, May late the wife of John de Roos of Hamelake, kn, was granted a share of the Tues market in dower (CCR, 1392–96, p. 212). This market was held in the ‘Tuesday market place’, the main market place of King’s Lynn.
F (Prescriptive) Margaret (20 Jul); feria recorded 1101x19, held by M of Holy Trinity, Norwich [Norwich cathedral priory]. Bishop’s Lynn on Gaywood marsh was probably an early site of trade after the Norman conquest; a ch dedicated to SS Margaret and Mary Magdalen was established here and granted to the M of Norwich cathedral priory. In 1101x19, Herbert, bp of Norwich, granted the M of Norwich cathedral priory the fair on the feast of Margaret which was held in the new parish created by the bp on Gaywood marsh (D.M. Owen, The Making of King’s Lynn, Records of Social and Economic History, ns ix (London, 1984), no. 2, pp. 6–9). In 1106, K Hen I granted a three day fair on Margaret to the ch of Norwich, Bp Herbert and the M (Regesta, ii, no. 762). This was confirmed in 1136 by K Steph (Regesta, iii, no. 616). Fair (nundine) mentioned in 1200 (PR, 2 John, p. 89). On 8 Jan 1202, K John granted John bp of Norwich a fair on 7+f+7 Margaret (20 Jul) (B. Dodwell ed., The Charters of Norwich Cathedral Priory, i, Pipe Roll Society (London, 1974), no. 82, p. 47). Fair mentioned in 1220 (CRR, viii, p. 287). The fair was confirmed by K Hen III on 10 May 1232 (CChR, 1226–57, p. 153). Fair mentioned in 1241, 1242 (CRR, xvi, no. 1398; CRR, xvii, no. 675). On 4 Oct 1283, K Edw I granted William, bp of Norwich a fair on v+15 Peter ad Vincula (1 Aug) in lieu of that held on v+15 Margaret (CChR, 1257–1300, p. 270). On 20 Jun 1316, K Edw II granted that although the fair had not been used since the granting of the charter, J. bp of Norwich could in future have the fair (CChR, 1300–26, p. 312).
F (Charter) f+15, Trans of Nicholas (9 May); feria gr 10 Jul 1203, by K John to John bp of Norwich.
