Somerset Assizes (1272-1279)
The records of the assizes held by the royal justices in eyre (itinerant) in Somerset during this period were edited by Lionel Landon and published by the Somerset Record Society in 1926. The justices not only tried all civil actions outstanding on their advent, pleas of the crown and common pleas, but also interrogated the juries of each hundred and borough as to the Articles of the Eyre, inquiring into the king's proprietary rights, escheats, wardships, and questions of maladministration. Appendix I adds some scattered Somerset items from rolls for 1204, 1218 and 1240.

Suffolk householders (1674)
Hearth tax was raised by assessing each householder on the number of chimneys to the dwelling. This provided a simple way to make a rough judgment as to the value of the dwelling: paupers were issued exemption certificates, but they too were listed at the end of each return. The returns were made by township, grouped by hundred. A complete copy of the hearth tax return for each shire was sent to the Exchequer: this is the return for Suffolk for Lady Day (25 March) 1674 (E 179/257/14) as printed in 1905 as Suffolk Green Book no xi, vol. 13. The numbers given are the numbers of hearths: where two or more people are grouped together with one number, it may be assumed that they were heads of separate households sharing a single building with that number of chimneys.

Subscribers to Memoir of Thomas Cranfield by his Son (1839)
The memoir of the life of Thomas Cranfield 'is a standing memorial of the blessed effects which result from the enlightened zeal and Christian perseverance of one man, in the cause of the dear Redeemer.' He was 'a laborious Sabbath-school Teacher; long a beloved Leader in the Southwark Sunday-school Society, and the devotedly-benevolent Visitor of the poor outcasts in the Mint and surrounding courts and alleys' on behalf of Surrey Chapel in Southwark; he was born 12 March 1758 in Southwark and died there 28 November 1838. This account of his life by his son attracted a wide subscription, particularly in London. The subscription list gives names and addresses, and in cases where multiple copies were ordered, says so.
