Scope and content

Michaelmas 2-3 and 3-4 Hen V. The latter account is briefer than the former. Receipts in the earlier account include rents of assize from city parishes and the farm of messuages, house, shops and closes in Holmestrete, Conesford, the marketplace, St Martin's at Palace, Gildencroft and at Carrow, detailing tenants, amounts paid and briefly describing individual properties. Expenses include miscellaneous payments and allowances to the accountant, the steward of the Hospital and others for repairs to tenements, and to the cook (for victuals bought) as per bills of account authorised by the master in his presence, and also includes allowances to the previous collector, William Julles and other respites for rents and farms unpaid. Both accounts record on their dorse sides, payments for malt brought to the Hospital on various occasions, as appeared in the 'libro hospicii' (the book of the household [? accounts])
