Broughton Court Roll (1258)
Among the possessions of Ramsey abbey was the manor or hono(u)r of Broughton in Huntingdonshire. Among the Augmentation Office Court Rolls in the Public Record Office, a strip of three membranes (Portf. 5, No. 44) records the business of the manor court from 29 January to 30 July 1258. This was transcribed by F. W. Maitland, extending the Latin but retaining the spelling of the proper names, and printed with a facing English translation in 1889. In many cases the surnames were also Englished, e. g. Eyre for Heres, but we have reindexed the text on the original forms alone.

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.
