-in the Victoria History of Somerset: part of a huge historical effort to describe the history of England down to the level of individual parishes and villages. The project was begun at the end of Queen Victoria's reign and since the 1970s, the volumes are in the process of being revised. It is a mammoth task, and many counties can only be accessed in the edition that is now about 100 years old. Richard has not had access to any of these, and the revised editions are still very incomplete. Only about 15% of Somerset has been done so far. Hence, the post-Conquest history of Tintinhull is described in about 10 pages.
A prosperous yeoman farmer and former bailiff of the manor [34: Valor Eccl. (Rec. Comm.) i, 95], Thomas Predell (d.1546) probably reflected the general pattern of farming in the area, when he left stock including 4 oxen, 5 cows, 3 heifers, 3 steers, 4 calves, 2 colts, and a flock of ewes and lambs [35: SRS xl 152]. The short leasing (RP note: typically 21 years) of the demesne or barton lands from 1560 onwards allowed the landlord to make detailed demands on his tenants for the maintenance of buildings, ditches and hedges.
Thomas married Elizabeth.
