The Tudor Period Market Rasen
Market Rasen was called East Rasen during the Tudor Period, it was not a big town but it was the centre of trade and industry for the area rather than agriculture. There was a market on Tuesdays, and using the probate inventories listed in “Tudor Market Rasen, Life and work in a sixteenth century market town illustrated by Probate Inventories” MR WEA Branch 1985 and Lincolnshire Archives. We can surmise that there were the following trades in the town.
