Suffolk and the Tudors

This chapter discusses two counties in England, Norfolk and Suffolk, during the reign of the Tudors. The discussion highlights the geography of these two counties and how the lands in these counties were used by the monarchs and other feudal lords. Based on the discussions in this chapter, it can be said that the land use and geography did not form a particularly strong basis for division within Tudor Suffolk. Although the Woodland area was too dominant to produce a continuing rivalry in the county between the sheep-corn and wood-pasture areas, it was still not enough of an economic and cultural unit to unify the county.
