Volume XIV: Lay Subsidy Rolls for Hertfordshire 1307-8 & 1334

This transcript of the 1307-8 lay subsidy roll for Hertfordshire makes available information concerning all communities and classes of people in the county; e.g., the comprehensive list of locative and occupational by-names supplies details about population mobility and occupations. As a tax listing, it allows a snapshot of wealth at the peak of medieval economic activity. The Introduction provides a firm basis for understanding the document and offers an overview of the state of Hertfordshire's economy in the early fourteenth century.
