Accounts (manorial)



Scope note(s)

  • Manorial accounts of various officials such as reeves, bedells and bailiffs. They are often described in the Latin as compoti. Where the official is not identified, the documents are described as 'ministers' accounts'. Accounts of receivers, chamberlains and farmers have not be included on the MDR since these officials presented their accounts under the administration of estates rather than manors. Therefore, they are not manorial documents. Later accounting records, such as cash books, day books and ledgers if they relate to an individual manor are included.
  • Manorial accounts are usually in Latin and use many abbreviations. They are unlikely to contain information about specific individuals.
