[Volume concerning Crown lands revenue], 1 Elizabeth - 43 Elizabeth

 Item — Volume: 1
Call Number: MS C241

Scope and Contents

Yearly totals of revenue derived from England and Wales, as divided into 7 regions, presumably corresponding with the Exchequer's 7 Auditors of Land Revenue. Includes notes explaning discrepancies. The Elizabethan hand is on the left-hand pages, and a later 18th century transcript (not always accurate) is on the right hand pages.

Some notes regard selling lead, wood, repairing Carlisle Castle. Previous Spencer staff thought this volume was a private, non-governmental compilation. Dates cover November 17, 1558 through either November 16, 1601 or September 29, 1602 (the 43rd regnal year of Queen Elizabeth I ended on November 16, 1601 but the 43rd Exchequer year ended on September 29, 1602).
