Prepared by Michael Steer

This paper was presented at the Association’s July 1897 Kingsbridge meeting. The author asserts that Pipe Rolls are among the most difficult documents to decipher among all of the existing local history materials. Without them the reigns of Henry II. and Richard I. would be almost a blank, as far as record evidence is concerned. The Pipe Rolls are records of the Exchequer, and contain an account of all moneys paid into or brought into account through the Treasury by sheriffs of counties from the lords of baronies or the tenants in chief of single estates held under the Crown not being parcels of any ancient Crown lordship. Inasmuch as the Treasury was the conduit or pipe through which the royal needs were supplied, these Rolls were consequently named Pipe Rolls.
