|Title:||Exchequer: King's Remembrancer: Miscellanea of the Exchequer|
A series of documents of considerable importance but little coherence.
It includes fragments of early Exchequer enrolments; writs, returns, and recorda, not only of the several departments of the Exchequer, but also of the common law; documents subsidiary to accounts and the accounting process, and file strays; an early 'census' for Ealing, Middx; documents relating to taxation, debt, and enquiries into fees; registers, inventories, precedents and formularies of the Exchequer and other courts; strays from deposited archives, such as those of religious houses after dissolution; petitions, warrants, agenda and other documents of the King's and minor royal councils, and occasionally of parliament; and also a collection of manuscript and printed fragments recovered from book bindings and covers.
