Scope and Content

Copies of the original cash books, EGR14/45 above. Each entry on the credit (right-hand) side is annotated with the folio number of the corresponding entry in the original cash books. EGR14/46/1 is headed "William Greenwood in account with A.F. Payne esq".

The cash books cover the period 1861-1867. However, the pages of both volumes are watermarked "1868" and all entries are made in the same hand, seemingly on one occasion, implying that the cash books are copies made retrospectively.
