  • Endnote

    Folios 30–3 are missing; f 34v gives the end of an account, probably for 1531–2, judging from the names of the incoming wardens which match those for 1532-3. The entire accounts for 1530-1 and most of those for 1531-2 are lacking.

  • Document Description

    Record title: St Peter's Churchwardens' Accounts
    Repository: STRO
    Shelfmark: Shaw Hellier MSS (in private hands)
    Repository location: Stafford

    The MS is in private hands and was temporarily deposited in Staffordshire Record Office for consultation by arrangement. It contains annual churchwardens' accounts, presented usually at Lady Day or Mid-Lent Sunday each year; in most cases the date of presentation specifies the calendar year. This is assumed to have been in Old Style and the year has been corrected accordingly (for example, 1520 has been given as 1520/1). There are several cases in which both the calendar and regnal year are specified; in these the year appears to be given in New Style and has not been corrected. The handwriting, presumably that of the parish clerk, changes several times in the course of the years covered by the document.

    1520–1634; English; paper; iv + 418; 295mm x 208mm; contemporary and modern foliation begins with f 7 (on f 5, as 2 leaves apparently missing at beginning of book, 4 leaves also missing following f 29, 2 leaves missing following f 103), foliation has been followed where found; bound in contemporary dark brown calf; no title.
