Description

Note: the rolls are annual, but their year begins at Michaelmas (29 September). The manorial administration always referred to the rolls by the year they began. Users should bear in mind that each roll in reality covers the following year too e.g. the 1274 roll covers Sept 1274- Sept 1275
