About Radcliffe on Trent

Radcliffe on Trent appears in the Domesday Book as "Radclyve" and records two manors, one of which was conveyed to the king's son, William Peverel and the other to William de Aincourt (Dayncourt), Lord of Blankeney in Lincolnshire.

From that time Radcliffe features in English history throughout the centuries; Tudor, Stuart - including the Civil War and the 18th century. The 19th century and early 20th centuries - Victorian and Edwardian, have a rich local history and has been extensively documented, see the publications listed below which have been published by the Society.
