Abstract :
British Library MS Harley 645, a register from Bury, contains copies of 66 accounts of obedientiaries, manorial officials and others. They may have been prepared in order to give new abbots a detailed view of the abbey's finance. They mostly predate the adoption of formally structured written accounts at Bury and are of especial interest in throwing light on a stage in the development of estate accounts of which little evidence survives elsewhere. They also provide interesting details of the system of food farms that still operated in Bury. ;
