Scope and content
Accounts from Mm 33 Hen VIII to Mm 4 Edward VI by chamberlains: Wylliam Morront and Robert Reynbald, 33-34 Hen VIII [1541-42], Raynbald and William Hede, 34-35 Hen VIII [1542-43] and Raynbald only 35 Hen VIII to 4 Edw IV [1543-1550].They appear to be fair-copies of the same accounts in the previous volume (NCR 18a/6), but are not identical copies, some including additional information and others, less. For example, the account of the 40 soldiers sent to the Scottish Wars in this volume, includes such details as the fact that they were delivered to Yarmouth to be embarked, and that the archers' bows were made of Yew ('ewen bows').
At the rear of the volume after the accounts are various memoranda relating to the end of Robert Reynbald's time as chamberlain, including a long and detailed inventory of moveables belonging to the Commonalty at Michaelmas 4 Edw IV in the various city buildings, including: the Guildhall, naming rooms and furniture, goods and records in the custody of the chamberlain (itemising leases and deeds re city properties) and of the mayor (the costumes and regalia), the muck boat and shears for river maintenance, utensils in the Common Inn, the Staithe, the New Mills, the Common Hall (chapel, vestry, steeple and hall itself in the Blackfriars' church in St Andrews), in the tenement next the two elms (Elm Hill) and in the Cross in the marketplace.
