Mr. R. M. Beaumont (Inf.)
North Muskham Disturbances: The Honorary Librarian, Southwell Minster
I.T.Jones Collection, Com. 3rd Jul 1982, Ref.L2-2

Letter from Mr. Beaumont, the Honorary Librarian, Southwell Minster advising that the old archdeaconry records are kept at Nottinghamshire University. What they do keep at the Minster are the records of the Chapter, which concern not only the Minster itself but also in certain matters within the Minster Peculiar. North Muskham was within the Peculiar and therefore he would have expected the Chapter and not the Archdeacon to have jurisdiction over North Muskham churchyard. Unfortunately the court records of visitations and corrections which began in 1469 are missing from 1595 to 1660.
