View Catalog

Description

Circa 15th century AD A silver hawking ring inscribed in a fine italic hand ' * of Woodrisen Co: Norff:', probably belonging to the de Rising family, lords of the manor of Woodrising. Silver, 0.56 grams, 9.11 mm (1/4") Found Thetford, Norfolk, UK; in 1980. An early spelling of Woodrising, a parish in Mitford district, Norfolk. The manor of Woodrising was held by the eponymous de Rising family in the thirteenth and early fourteenth centuries and eventually passed to William de Witchingham whose wife, Margaret, may have been an heiress of the de Risings. The lordship of the manor then passed down the Witchingham family to Edmund in 1433 and thence to his daughter Amy.
