15th century English Name List, info on rents, etc
- Poking around on the Jorvik Viking Center site, I came across a link to the York Archaeological Trust. On that site, I found they have put up a transcription of the surviving 15th century Bridgemasters rolls! It can be found below:
The bridgemasters were responsible for collecting rents for and maintaining houses in York, and also for a chantry on the Foss bridge; there are thousands of names, a long list of occupations, and the accounts themselves, dealing with rents, costs for repairs, etc.!
