CHURCHWARDENS' ACCOUNT ROLLS AND BOOKS

Scope and Content

Apart from an isolated roll of 1430, the main sequence of churchwardens' accounts for Oxford St. Mary Magdalen starts in 1561. Until 1650 these are preserved as rolls, one for each year (with some gaps). Between 1651 and 1685, no accounts survive, and from 1686 onwards, accounts are recorded in volume form.
