This is Part IV of the Norwich Castle report (EAA 132), providing documentary evidence that supplements the data presented in the monograph. The documentary evidence presented here is published separately because of the sheer scale of the data and because it forms a rounded resource in its own right. The intention is to provide additional data on
properties around the entire circuit of the Castle Fee, which originated as a substantial precinct of Crown land defined immediately around the castle and developed into
an administrative entity. Two aspects considered here are directly relevant to the archaeological and other evidence presented in the monograph. The first element details the
ownership and physical development of the seventy-one properties documented within the Castle Fee, several of which were investigated during the excavations. The second element presents documentary evidence on ‘The Strangers’ in the parish of St John’s on the Hill (Timberhill, formerly St John at the Castle Gate). These Dutch andWalloon families settled in Norwich from the mid 16th century and boosted economic growth through textile production.
