Coleman, Clare

Clare Coleman discovered English medieval history during an active retirement after a professional life spent in government service. Subsequently she embarked with great enthusiasm on a study of medieval Downham, publishing in 1984 Downham-in-the-Isle A Study in an Ecclesiastical Manor in the Thirteenth and Fourteenth Centuries.Sadly her death in 1988 prevented her from seeing this volume in print, but her family and friends and hope it may serve as a fitting tribute to a remarkable person, warmly remembered.
