Record title: Steward's Accounts
Repository: Southampton City Archives
Repository location: Southampton
The date of this account is provided by a note on f 5 that indicates that this is Thomas Homan's book for the year of Thomas Payne's mayoralty, 1472–3, and from a note on f 8 that gives the date of 4 October, 12 Edward IV (1472). The book contains no audit and the manner of the record-keeping suggests that this may be a book of steward's memoranda, rather than formal accounts.
1472–3; English; paper; 0 + 38 +0; 303mm x 218mm; modern pencil foliation; damaged and repaired by gluing original pages onto heavy paper; modern light orange pressboard cover with leather ties, no title.
