Description

Demesne account rolls form the most important source for the history of English agriculture in the Middle Ages. They provide a wealth of information on the crops grown and livestock reared on manorial demesnes - those parts of manors managed directly by or for their lords - as well as on prices, marketing, rents, building expenses and many other aspects of rural life.

Kent is one of the counties for which surviving accounts are most abundant. This catalogue lists and describes just under 1,500 accounts relating to 100 Kentish manors in the period before the Black Death. In addition, there is a summary listing of accounts from the period 1350-1500 and indexes to parish and manor/place names, owners, and repositories. The catalogue, which brings together material from 16 different archives, will be of great value to students of particular places, to those planning county-wide studies, and to economic historians in general.

'The volume is attractively produced and the information clearly presented. It will be a godsend for any historian who wants to know what survives from medieval Kent' — Archives
