Administrative / biographical background:

Each queen consort had a council and appointed a Receiver General and Auditor General. Under Henrietta Maria and Cathereine of Braganza the former officer also held the post of Treasurer. The accounts of their lands and households passed through these officers rather than the Exchequer. In this series will be found the accounts of these central officers as well as of the particular receivers responsible for specific areas or holdings and of other ministers.
