Extract From A General Account Roll For The Staffordshire Manors Of Edmund, Earl Of Stafford, 1399

Manorial accounts were based on a simple ‘charge and discharge’ system. This is an illustration of the first part of the account roll, which sets out the ‘charge’, that is the total receipts from some of the Staffordshire manors in the possession of the Earl of Stafford for the year, 1399. These were Stafford itself, Forebridge (Forbrigge), Madeley and Norton in the Moors. Only the total receipts are specified and there are no details in this particular document of individual tenants’ names. Each manor had its own collector and the names of the collectors or bailiffs for each manor are given, for example, Hugh Stanford for Stafford.
