Edited by David Crook

Transcripts of 13c plea rolls, vital legal, social and economic detail of the time, presented with full index for ease of reference.
This volume completes the series initiated in 1922 to publish full texts of the plea rolls of the central courts of the English common law, the Bench and the Court Coram Rege. It contains the rolls of both courts for the second half of the year 1250, illustrating the development of the common law and providing information about a variety of people, places and subjects, from a hunting dispute between St Albans abbey and one of its knights to the activities of a criminal gang in Staffordshire and a settlement between neighbouring lords about the return of stray hunting dogs. A comprehensive index of persons and places is also included.
