Publications » Vol. 20: Chamber Accounts Of The Sixteenth Century
Although the City of London's archives are rich in administrative and legal records there are almost no financial records surviving before the seventeenth century. However some draft chamberlains' accounts for the years 1584-1586 have survived and are printed in this volume. The accounts which cover most of the City's income and expenditure, include a very diverse range of entries. The editor in the introduction provides an explanation of medieval accounting procedures as well as an analysis of the City's finances in the later sixteenth century. The records are fully indexed.
