The medieval court was constantly on the move, travelling between castles, towns, estates and monasteries, consuming great quantities before moving on. Frequently, the king travelled on to a favourite forest to hunt, with hounds or kestrel, or to a magnate's castle. Henry II attempted to make the process a little more predictable and easier to administer by announcing the route a month in advance. This made matters easier for a *purveyor. Edward I changed residence 78 times in one year late in his reign. King John changed place two or three times a fortnight; it was a great event for him to settle anywhere for a month. However, during the later part of Edward III's reign (1327-77) such removing was dramatically limited to three or four favourite places, all within easy reach of London, i.e. Havering, Woodstock, Windsor and Sheen. -
