RECORD SOCIETY OF LANCASHIRE 
AND CHESHIRE 

REPORT FOR THE YEAR .907-8 



Read at the Annual Meeting Jicld in the Audit Room of the Chetham 
Hospital, Manchester, $rd November 1908. 



SINCE the Annual Meeting held on the 4th December 1907, three 
volumes have been issued to the Members. The first of these, 
Volume 54, is Part II. of the series of Lancashire Inquests and 
Feudal Aids, and covers the period from 1310 to 13^3. It has been 
edited by Mr. Farrer, whom the Society have to thank for the gift 
of the transcript. 

The second, Volume 55, is Part II. of the Freemen Rolls of the 
City of Chester (1701-1805), and has been edited by Mr. J. H. E. 
Bennett, who has also presented the transcript to the Society. 

The third, Volume 56, is the second in the series of Abstracts 
of Marriage Licences granted within the Archdeaconry of Chester 
(including Lancashire south of the Ribble). This volume covers 
the period from 1616 to 1624, and has been edited by the Hon. 
Secretary. 

For the current year Mr. Farrer is editing a fourth volume of 
Lancashire Final Concords, while a further volume of Marriage 
Licences is in the press. The Council have once more to place on 
record their gratitude to Mr. Farrer for the gift of the transcript of 
the new volume. 

The attention of the Council has recently been drawn to a very 
interesting series of early documents relating to Cheshire, being the 
earliest series of Chamberlains' Accounts for Chester, dating from 
the reign of Edward I. A preliminary examination of these docu- 
ments shows that they contain material of the greatest value to 
those interested in the history of Cheshire during a period when 
only the scantiest information is available. These Rolls, moreover, 
do not appear to have been examined before by any of the County 
historians. The transcript of a sufficient portion of these to form 
a volume of the Society's Proceedings will cost about ^{'40, and the 
Council did not feel justified in the present low state of the Society's 



iv REPORT OF THE SOCIETY 

funds in spending so much, but they decided to allot a sum of ,20 
towards the expense provided a sum at least equal to this were 
raised by special subscription. The Council are glad to be able to 
state that sufficient subscriptions have already been received, and 
the transcript is now well in hand. The editing of this volume will 
be undertaken by Mr. Ronald Stewart-Brown, who originally drew 
the attention of the Society to the series. 

During the year ending 3oth June 1908 four new members have 
joined the Society. During the same period five members have 
died and two have resigned. The number of paying members of 
the Society now stands at 159. 

The Council deeply regret to record the death of the Rev. Canon 
Stanning, who had been a member of the Council since 1883, and 
edited the first four volumes of the Royalist Composition Papers for 
Lancashire. They have appointed in his place Mr. W. D. Pink, 
who has for many years been an active worker in the field of local 
archaeology. 

The following is a list of some of the volumes which are in 
progress, and which it is hoped to print shortly : 

The Visitation of Cheshire, 1613. By Sir George Armytage and 

Mr. Rylands. 
The Chartulary of St. Werburgh's Abbey, Chester. By Mr. 

Powicke. 

Lancashire Plea Rolls, 1500-1536. Part I. By Colonel Parker. 
A Complete Index to the Record Society's Publications (Vols. 

1-50). By Mr. Henry Brierley. 
Royalist Composition Papers for Lancashire. Part V. By Mr. 

Pink. 

A few sets of the Society's Publications are still on hand. 
Members can obtain the price of sets or of single volumes by 
applying to the Honorary Secretary.
