Through an examination of the Husting wills, Kate Staples focuses on daughters in the late medieval capital and their chances to own, rent, and manage property. These daughters were provided opportunities to be active economic agents in a world often described as hostile to women. Daughters of London also considers parents influence through their bequests to daughters and the visualization of daughters household spaces that these bequests allow. By focusing on daughterhood, and particularly urban daughters experiences of inheritance, we can refocus the lens through which we see and understand women s lives in the medieval past
