At the core of the estate were demesne manors, which the lord could either exploit directly to provide cash, food and other produce or lease (or ‘farm’) to another person for an annual rent to generate a steady income. A lord might also hold other parcels and slivers of land as a tenant of other manors, which usually were leased for a cash rent to local farmers: it was not economical for lords to cultivate small, miscellaneous parcels of land directly. 77–8, 82–3; J. 145–53. 45–6, citing correspondence to Dame Alice de Bryene of Bures.
The single most valuable manor in Suffolk was undoubtedly Mildenhall, comprising an enormous arable demesne of 1,200 acres, which in 1323 sent more than £130 in cash to the coffers of the cellarer of Bury St Edmunds abbey, in addition to large quantities of grain, livestock and other produce of equivalent value. 19 During the course of the thirteenth century landlords became increasingly sophisticated in the way that they mixed production strategies on the various manors across their estates, and also exploited the growing opportunities for commercial profit.
Monastic landlords were especially focused upon the subsistence needs of their households, because they had a fixed and sizeable community of monks, nuns or canons to feed, heat and clothe, and consequently their manors were usually the most weakly commercialized in England. 27 Most of the examples presented so far, and most of the research on medieval commerce, draw upon the evidence of aristocratic manors, because their surviving records are most informative and voluminous. We still know too little about production strategies on the manors of lesser lay landlords, the very category of lords who dominated Suffolk society.
