Edited by Peter Bloore and Edward Martin, 2015. The 650th anniversary of the foundation of Wingfield College in 2012 was the occasion for a special two-day symposium marking the culmination of a three-year University of East Anglia research project. Wingfield was explored in the context of tis landscape, the building of the castle, church, and chantry college. This book is the result of the papers delivered at the symposium, and examines many topics which have hitherto been neglected, such as the archaeology of the castle, the complex history of the college's architecture, and the detailed study of the monuments in the church.

By Lt. Col. John M. Wingfield, D.S.O, O.B.E. (1863-1931). Originally published in 1925, republished from the original and updated in 1991 by the Wingfield Family Society. It gives an insight into English life of the Wingfield family as lived in the times of the Tudors during the early part of the 16th century. It incidentally places on record the doings of a complete generation of one of the oldest Saxon families in England--the Wingfields--who at that period held many important posts both in England and on the continent. The details are mostly taken from the Harleian Manuscripts at the Record Office, and from a 1670 pedigree compiled by John Wingfield, York Herald, which was in the possession of the author of this book.
