The Cely Papers: Selections from the correspondence and memoranda of the Cely family, 1475-1488
The Cely Papers cover 1475-1488, and are a marvelous mirror into the lives and lifestyle of a very wealthy family of English wool merchants, members of the Staple of Calais and owners of business and residentia l property in London as well as some estates in Essex. They traveled regularly between England and the Continent on business and carry on a fascinatin g correspond ence that passes, often with amazing speed, between London and wherever family members or members of the firm happen to be on the Continent, but most usually they can be found at Calais or in their London headquarte rs on Mart Lane.
