The death of Anne F. Sutton on 18th June 2022 has left an enormous gap in medieval scholarship. She was an outstanding historian and a great friend to many, and especially to the Yorkist History Trust. She was a founding trustee and remained active and engaged with our activities, projects and publications until the very end. Anne was delighted that the trust published her last monograph The King’s Work: The Defence of the North under the Yorkist Kings 1471–85 (Shaun Tyas Publications: Donington, 2021) which is a tour de force in primary research.
In consultation with her executors, the Yorkist History Trust have set up a special ‘Anne F. Sutton Memorial Fund’ for donations which we can use specifically to support projects and/or publications which align closely with Anne’s own interests. The trustees are extremely grateful to Anne’s executors for this and for supporting a cause which was of such great importance to her.
