    Record title: Mayor's Accounts
    Repository: Southampton City Archives
    Shelfmark: SC5/3/11
    Repository location: Southampton

    Titles on original covers identify these as the mayors' books of 'casualties': here meaning fines and payments for a variety of civic expenses as well as accounts of poor relief, the last often taking up the largest part of the book. These books, each covering a single accounting year from Michaelmas to Michaelmas, appear to be rough accounts which were copied into the Books of Fines at the end of each accounting year. Some have their original parchment covers, others have replacement paper covers of the late eighteenth century.

    1603–4; English; paper; 6 leaves; modern pencil foliation; original parchment cover, top half of front cover torn away, so that only bottom line of title remains: '1603.'
