Sherwood Forest Pleas
Pleas of the forest of Sherwood, heard at Nottingham on the morrow of Hilary in the 15th year of the reign of king Edward I, 14 January 1287, recorded in Public Record Office Forest Proceedings, Treasury of Receipt, No. 127, were selected, transcribed (the Latin extended) and translated by G. J. Turner and published by the Selden Society in 1901. The text and translation are printed on facing pages.

1553
Officers of the Royal Household
King Edward VI died 6 July 1553 and was buried 8 August following. The accounts of the funeral expenses were prepared by sir Edward Waldegrave, knight, one of queen Mary's privy coucil, and master of her Majesty's great wardrobe. The expenses included the purchase of 'blacke clothe boughte for the buriall' to furnish mourning for every officer and servant of the late king's household, and these accounts list all the officers, department by department, by name. Most officers were provided with 4 yards of cloth, and their clerks and servants 3 yards each: greater dignitaries were allowed from 7 to 16 yards; sir Edward himself received 10. The total cost of the 9,376 and a half yards of cloth was £5946 9s 9d.

1714-1715
Debtors in the Clink
A list of the 94 prisoners for debt in the Clink prison at Michaelmas, 29 September 1714; with a list of the 51 further persons made prisoner there from then through to 2 July 1715.

1780-1781
British officer prisoners
Sir Henry Clinton at New York 24 January 1781 transmitted to lord George Germain (one of king George III's Principal Secretaries of State) this list of British officers, prisoners with the Americans, exchanged since 25 October 1780. The names are arranged by rank, and then by regiment.

1815
Shoreditch Refuge for the Destitute: Subscribers
The Refuge for the Destitute, Middlesex House, Hackney Road, Shoreditch, was supported by donations and subscriptions. This list of subscribers, correct to 1 April 1815, lists all donations, as well as subscriptions received in the previous year, the names being arranged by initial letter of surname or title, then in order of precedence, with nobility, gentry, and then commoners in alphabetical order, often with an address. On the right-hand side of each page there are two columns, the first being for donations (in pounds and shillings), the other for annual subscriptions (usually of a guinea). A donation of ten guines or more qualified the donor as a Governor for Life: these are indicated by an asterisk in front of the name. C indicates a member of the committee; S, having served as a steward; V.P. a vice-president.

The object of this society was, to provide a place of refuge for persons discharged from prisons, or the hulks, unfortunate and deserted females, and others, who from loss of character, or extreme indigence, could not procure an honest maintenance though willing to work; also, in cases of very urgent necessity, to afford temporary relief to distressed persons, until parochial or other assistance could be obtained, 'and thereby to put an end to the plea of necessity urged by many of the idle, disorderly and profligate characters that infest our streets'.

1822

Wigan Poor Rate
The poor rate assessment for Wigan is arranged by the seven divisions of
the town - Hallgate, Market Street, Millgate, Scholes, Standishgate,
Wallgate and Woodhouses - with an appendix of occupiers of lands. Full
names are usually given, occasionally with occupation.

1776-1779
Board of Stamps Apprenticeship Books: Country Collectors' Returns
Apprenticeship indentures and clerks' articles were subject to a 6d or
12d per pound stamp duty: the registers of the payments usually give the
master's trade, address, and occupation, and the apprentice's name, as
well as details of the date and length of the apprenticeship. There are
central registers for collections of the stamp duty in London, as well
as returns from collectors in the provinces. These collectors generally
received duty just from their own county, but sometimes from further
afield: in 1770 a change was made to describe many of the collectors
according to their county rather than their town, but no change was made
to the rule that they might stamp indentures from all the surrounding
area, so these labels are deceptive. The indentures themselves can date
from a year or two earlier than this return. There are returns from
Bedfordshire, Berkshire, Brecknockshire, Bristol, Buckinghamshire,
Cambridgeshire, Cardiganshire, Cheshire, Cornwall, Cumberland,
Denbighshire, Derbyshire, Devonshire, Dorsetshire, Durham, Essex,
Flintshire, Glamorganshire, Gloucestershire, Hampshire, Herefordshire,
Hertfordshire, Huntingdonshire, Kent, Lancashire, Leicestershire,
Lincolnshire, Middlesex, Monmouthshire, Norfolk, Northamptonshire,
Northumberland, Nottinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Scotland, Shropshire,
Somersetshire, Staffordshire, Suffolk, Surrey, Sussex, Warwickshire,
Westmorland, Wiltshire, Worcestershire, and Yorkshire, each of which has
been indexed separately. 3 September 1791 to 17 January 1794. IR 1/66

1823
Apothecaries
The membership list of the Associated Apothecaries and
Surgeon-Apothecaries of England and Wales lists members alphabetically
by surname and christian name, usually giving address. Those marked P.
had served the office of President; V. P. as Vice-President. Those
marked with an asterisk had previously been upon the General Committee;
those with a dagger were on the then present Committee.

1824
Liverpool Directory
Volume I of Edward Baines's History, Directory, and Gazetteer of the
County Palatine of Lancaster, published at Liverpool in 1824, includes
this directory of Liverpool, which in addition extends to cover those
principal inhabitants living on the Cheshire side of the Mersey.

1868
South Shropshire Poll Book
The poll book of the election, November 1868, for the Southern Division
of Shropshire, is arranged by polling district, and then by parish,
township, &c., showing the votes cast (H, Herbert; C, Corbett; M, More),
the number on the electoral register, and the full name of the voter,
surname first. Where a person had voting qualification in more than one
parish, the name is given in each place, but with a cross-reference to
the parish list with the entry the vote(s) cast. At the head of each
column of register numbers there is a letter in bold indicating the
polling district - A, Bishop's Castle; B, Bridgnorth; C, Church
Stretton; D, Cleobury Mortimer; E, Clun; F, Ludlow; G, Pontesbury; H,
Shiffnal; I, Wenlock.

1888
Students at University College, Bristol
The list of students at University College, Bristol, for session 1888 to
1889, is arranged in three sections: Day, Evening, and Assistant
Teachers. Men and women are listed separately in each case. Full names
are given, surname first, but middle names only by initial - except that
married women's christian names are generally only represented by
initials, and their maiden names are not stated.

1900
Long-Lost Relatives
Each issue of Lloyd's Weekly News, of London, contained a column devoted
to searches for Long-Lost Relatives. The inquiries were arranged in
three groups: Home Inquiries (i. e., from correspondents in the United
Kingdom); Colonial and Foreign Inquiries (from abroad); and Soldiers'
and Sailors' Inquiries. Results from all these were grouped together as
'Answers to Inquiries'.
Each column was headed: 'Correspondents MUST give full addresses and the
DATES OF THE INQUIRIES to which they refer. We cannot search back
numbers, nor print inquiries for "missing husbands." These columns are
not intended for inquiries in respect to claimants for money, and no
agents, at home or abroad, have any connection with Lloyd's.'

Licentiates in Theology, and of Civil Engineers, to the year in which
each passed the final examination. Those dates that are marked with a
double dagger are years in which the graduate, being a member of another

William Lilly, an astrologer, kept practice books listing his clients,
their questions and the figures or horoscopes that he cast. Their
questions relate to stolen property, probable success in any
undertaking, ships at sea, health, long-life, love, marriage, pregnancy,
&c. The books came into the possession of Elias Ashmole, who bequeathed
them to Oxford University. This calendar was prepared by William Henry
Black and printed in 1845. He lists the clients by folio number,
remarking 'the names are often omitted, and usually written invertedly,
or disguised in some other manner'. Where a date of birth is specified

to king George III, 14 November 1775, 'Which Address His Majesty was
pleased to receive very graciously.' 'Let those wicked Persons, who from
hence either secretly abet, or in America openly support, this
destructive Contest, be taught some Truths, of which it is material that
they and their misguided Followers should no longer be ignorant.' A
similar address was presented at the same time from the Steward,
Bailiffs and principal inhabitants of the ancient borough of Cirencester
condemning 'so ill-founded and so unnatural a Rebellion'. Both addresses
are subscribed by lists of inhabitants.

1812
Union for Parliamentary Reform: Subscribers
Following several meetings in London in June 1812, a Union for
Parliamentary Reform was established, drawing support from throughout
Britain. The union's principal tenets were:
'1. Representation - the happiest discovery of political wisdom - is the
vital principle of the English Constitution, inasmuch as it is that
alone, which in a state, too extensive for personal legislation,
constitutes political liberty.
'2. Political Liberty being a common right, representation co-extensive
with direct taxation, ought, with all practicable equality, to be fairly
and honestly distributed throughout the community, the facility of which
cannot be denied.
'3. The constitutional duration of a Parliament cannot exceed one year.'
This list of subscribers gives full names, with the town of residence.
Those subscribers who paid three guineas a year have a dagger in front

Board of Stamps Apprenticeship Books: Country Collectors? Returns
Apprenticeship indentures and clerks' articles were subject to a 6d or

master's trade, address, and occupation, and the apprentice's name, as
well as details of the date and length of the apprenticeship. There are
central registers for collections of the stamp duty in London, as well
as returns from collectors in the provinces. These collectors generally
received duty just from their own county, but sometimes from further

according to their county rather than their town, but no change was made
to the rule that they might stamp indentures from all the surrounding
area, so these labels are deceptive. The indentures themselves can date
