There's an article about Tudor and Stuart table-settings by Peter
Brears in "The Appetite and the Eye".  Data from the records of the
Pewterers' Company in 1533 suggest that pewter trenchers were about 7
or 8 inches in diameter.  He mentions wooden trenchers, both square
and round, but doesn't give sizes.
