Resources for medieval London government

Dr Matthew Davies, 29 October 2005

The site contains several key resources for the government and law of medieval London, from the late thirteenth to the early sixteenth centuries. The ten volume Calendar of the Letter Books of the City of London contains early material relating to the governing of the city such as freedom admissions, recognizances for debts, and economic regulation, later developing into a formal record of proceedings of the court of aldermen and the court of common council. This important series of records is complemented by material in the Calendar of Plea and Memoranda Rolls, and the proceedings of one of the City's courts, contained in the Calendar of Early Mayor's Court Rolls.
