Excerpt from The Pipe Roll of the Bishopric of Winchester, 1210-1211: P. R. O. Eccl. 2-22-159270b
The object of this book is primarily to transcribe and edit the text of the pipe roll, and secondly, to estimate its importance as a source for administrative history in the early thirteenth century by attempting to describe the administrative machinery on the Winchester estates. Using the text itself as a primary source, and where this fails, drawing analogies from other estates, both lay and ecclesiastical, at a slightly later date. I have made no attempt therefore to comment on the economic aspect of the roll.
