    Repository location: Winchester

    The bursars' accounts were kept annually by the two bursars, one of whom was elected each year and served as the junior bursar, becoming senior bursar the following year. Their accounts included all the college finances, beginning with receipts from the rents of manors and estates owned by the college. Expenses are divided into sections: chapel, hall, kitchen, pantry, stable, and garden; stipends to chaplains, scholars, and others; and external expenses and gifts (the last two the sections where payments to entertainers were normally entered). The rolls have paper wrappers, some of which contain notes made by later bursars. The account year varies considerably but most often runs roughly from Michaelmas to Michaelmas.

    1474–5; Latin; parchment; 8 membranes, attached serially; 285–750mm x 270–5mm; mb [1] slightly damaged, no relevant text affected.
