Quick Reference

The survival rate of annual accounts for medieval estates varies from one part of the country to another. For Norfolk alone almost 2 000 accounts are extant for the period 1238–1450, representing some 219 different demesnes, 60 per cent of them with fewer than five Compotus Rolls. On the other hand, in the remote north‐west and south‐west of England hardly any accounts survive.
