Surrey Record Society, Vol XL. The 1263 Surrey Eyre edited with an introduction by Susan Stewart, 2006.

£15.00
The Eyre, a judicial visitation by centrally appointed justices, was one of the chief instruments through which royal power was brought to bear in the localities and through which the people of the shires hope to find satisfaction and justice in their complaints and grievances against their neighbours and local officers. The 1263 Eyre, the third to be published by the Society, followed Henry III's reassertion of royal authority after the crisis that had erupted in 1258. The records of the Eyre, covering both civil and criminal pleas, throw considerable light on the life and government of the county and on crime and criminal justice in the middle ages. In her introduction, the editor pays particular attention to the role of women in the Eyre, as evidence for their legal and social status.

Surrey Record Society, Vol XLI. Surrey Gaol and Session House, 1791-1824 ed. Christopher Chalklin, 2009

£10.00
In 1790, the Surrey justices determined to build a new county gaol and session house in Horsemonger Lane in Newington. Between 1791 and 1824, a group of trustees appointed from the justices, oversaw the construction of the new prison, session house and house of correction and the repayment of the mortgages of the county rates to cover cost. The new gaol opened in 1798, the house of correction in 1800. This volume includes a calendar of the two minute books and the account book of the trustees; together they are a rare survival in the detail they provide of the construction, furnishing and financing of a major public building of this period.

In the second, the transcription of the Latin text is provided together with a parallel translation by David Crook. Price £10 (£2 to Surrey Record Society members.

Surrey Record Society, Vol XXXVIII. The 1258-9 Special Eyre of Surrey and Kent edited with an introduction by Andrew Hershey, 2004

£10.00
In 1258-9 the recently appointed justiciar of England, Hugh Bigod, visited Surrey and Kent to hear the complaints and pleas brought to him by commissions of knights appointed in each county. Bigod's appointment was a key part of the enforcement of the proposals for the reform of Henry III's government, the Provisions of Oxford, which the king was obliged to accept in June 1258. The surviving plea roll, transcribed and translated here, allows researchers access to a key source for the quality of local government during the personal rule of Henry III and the grievances against local officials and royal favourites which had fed this crisis in the king's reign.
