Where to find an uncalendered Inquisition Post Mortem?

+4 votes

A source references an inquisition post mortem at the manor of Woodhall in 15 Edward IV.  According to Wikitree Wikipedia, this year is uncalendered.  Any chance that the document could be found online?  It is for Thomas Bosvile/Boswell of Ederthorpe and mentions his daughter Margaret, wife of William Syms/Symmes, and Ellen, wife of Robert Pilley.  I couldn't find anything doing a keyword search at https://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/ in C140.

Why is it uncalendered and what does that mean?

15 Edward IV is uncalendared simply because the work has not been done yet.  It falls into an annoying gap from 1447 to 1485 in which the IPMs have not yet been published.  I believe the last volume of the IPM Calendar series was published in 2010.  Unfortunately, last I heard the funding for transcribing and publishing these IPMs had run out.

I also was unable to find the IPM of Thomas Bosvile of Edderthorpe, co. Yorks.  There are several posts in the soc.genealogy.medieval archives which may interest you, especially:

Thanks Joe.  So the calendaring process has been ongoing?  I had no idea.

Thanks Andrew.  Yes, Wikipedia.  I tend to do that a lot.
