Has anyone else read DOWN THE COMMON: A NOVEL, by Ann Baer? It is about everyday life in rural medieval England. Very interesting even if a little gloomy.

Greetings. I'm Sheri Putnam. I have been able to trace my direct family tree Puttenham-Putnam back to Anachitil  who was born in Normandy and in 1066 was a companion of William the Conqueror at the Battle of Hastings. Anachitil' son, Roger was a tenant recorded as holder of the lands of Puttenham, England in 1088. He was an overlord and holder of the lands for Odo the Bishop of Bayeaux.
