Title: Exchequer: King's Remembrancer: Entry Books of Decrees, Series IV

This series continues the series of entry books of decrees of the Court of Exchequer begun in E 123

Decrees were pronounced at the sittings in the Exchequer Chamber. When the decree had been drawn up, it was signed by a sworn clerk. Then the King's Remembrancer, or more usually his deputy, wrote the intretur as a warrant to the register to enter it. The entered decrees usually record the name of one or both clerks acting for the parties, and, in abbreviated form, the intretur which authorised their entry.

Digital images of some of the records in this series are available through the Anglo-American Legal Tradition website. Please note that The National Archives is not responsible for this website or its content.
