Inhabitants of Howdenshire and Harthill wapentakes in the East Riding of Yorkshire (1379)
The poll tax returns of the 2nd year of the reign of king Richard II for Howdenshire, the area around Howden, were transcribed from the original in the Public Record Office (Exchequer Lay Subsidies 202/69) and published in the Yorkshire Archaeological & Topographical Journal in 1886. In editing the text, the abbreviated Latin has been extended, and those occupations that appear have been put in italics. The normal tax for a husbandman or labourer and his wife was 4d, as was that for a single person; but tradesmen paid 6d or more. There are separate returns for Houeden (Howden), Saltmersshe (Saltmarshe), Cottenesse (Cotness), Metham, Scalby, Hemmyngburgh (Hemingbrough), Melton, Hithe, ....., Greneayk (Greenoak), Blactoft (Blacktoft), Thorp (Thorpe), Belby, Houom (Holme on the Wolds), Scoreburgh (Scorbrough), Walkington, Hothom (Hotham), Cliff (Cliffe), Barneby (Barmby), Bolthorp (Bowthorpe), Estryngton (Eastrington), Southduffelde (South Duffield), North Duffeld (North Duffield), Bardelby (Barlby), Welleton (Welton), Dyk (Gilberdike), Ousthorp (Ousethorpe), Brakenholm (Brackenholme), Kylpyn (Kilpin), Skypwyth (Skipwith), Cayuill (Cavil), Portyngton (Portington), Berland, Rykall (Riccall), Skelton, Balkholme, Lynton (Linton), West Cottingwith with Thorgramby (Thorganby), Knedelington (Knedlington), Yukflete (Yokefleet), Askelby (Asselby) and Gerthom (Gardham), as well as one or two places for which the headings are missing, and it is the latter that are indexed here.

Testators and legatees in London (1358-1688)
The Court of Husting of the city of London sat (usually on a Monday) each week: among its functions was the enrolment of deeds and wills relating to citizens of London. In their strictest technical sense the terms 'will' and 'devise' are appropriate to real estate, and the terms 'testament', 'bequest' and 'legacy' to personal estate, but this distinction is lost sight of in ordinary usage. This calendar of wills proved and enrolled in the Court of Husting was edited by Reginald R. Sharpe, records clerk in the office of the Town Clerk of the City of London, and printed by order of the corporation in 1890. The date of the court is given in italics, with the year in bold in the margin. The testator's name is given in capitals (surname first, in bold), and then a brief listing of substantial bequests, with the names of legatees, and then the date of making of the will, and reference. The bulk of the wills in this volume are from before 1600.
