Surrey Record Society, Vol XLVI. The Accounts for the Manor of Esher in the Winchester Pipe Rolls, 1235-1376 ed. David Stone, 2017

£30.00
Free to Surrey Record Society members. Price to non-members £30. The Winchester Pipe Rolls are the most famous series of estate accounts that survive for medieval England, particularly because of their early start date and astonishing level of detail. In the early 1230s, the bishopric of Winchester bought the Surrey manor of Esher and the accounts for the manor in the Pipe Rolls record a prodigious amount of information about the development and management of the manor and the lives of the people who lived and worked there. The accounts reveal how this elite landscape was laid out and its agricultural resources exploited and also provide glimpses of the fortunes of the local peasantry through a period of climate change, periodic famine, livestock disease and, notoriously, the Black Death. The volume contains annotated translations of forty-four of Esher's surviving accounts, supported by a comprehensive introduction and statistical analysis by Dr Stone, a specialist in the history of medieval agriculture.

£5.00
By the 1540s, England had begun domestic production of gunpowder at Rotherhithe on the Thames.

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.

Surrey Record Society, Vols XLII & XLIII. The Register of John de Stratford, Bishop of Winchester, 1323-1333 ed. Roy Martin Haines, 2010-2011

£25.00
John de Stratford, Bishop of Winchester, 1323-1333, and Archbishop of Canterbury, 1333-48, was one of the most significant English prelates of the first half of the fourteenth century. He was appointed to Winchester by the Pope against the will of King Edward II, was later involved in the deposition of that monarch and also fell out with Edward III while chancellor for his alleged failure to provide adequate support for the King's campaign in Flanders in 1340. His register includes entries reflecting the political engagement of the papacy as well as the affairs of church and state in England and, in particular, church and social life across Surrey and Hampshire. The editor of this two volume edition is Professor Roy Haines, biographer of both Stratford and Edward II, and author of many notable works on the medieval church.
