Overview

Overview

An introduction to the office of bursar and its records precedes the five documents dating from the thirteenth to the fifteenth centuries. Covers the period of transition in the management of estates when, between 1350 and 1418, the direct exploitation of demesnes gave way to a system of leasing. The five documents are: I. Valuation, (c. 1230?); II. Rent-roll, Pentecost 1270; III. Bursar's Rental, 1340-1 and Sale of Tithes, 1343; IV. Bursar's Rental, 1396-7; V. Bursar's Rent-Book, 1495-6. Ends with a gazeteer giving a description of all the properties accounted for, under the headings of temporalities, spiritualities and obedientiary property.
