Dr Helen Lacey

Mansfield College, University of Oxford

Resources

People of 1381 Project

Petition of Margery Tany

Petition of Margery Tany, widow of Thomas Tany and executrix of his testament.

Discussion Questions

  1. What circumstantial details do we need to take into account when examining the two petitions of Margery Tawney?
  2. Why might women be underrepresented in the archival records of the revolt?
  3. What can this petition tell us about the role of law and justice in the rebellion of 1381?
