INTRODUCTION

Continuing the publication of the annual Recusant Rolls of the Exchequer, the present volume contains an abstract in English of the third and fourth rollsl- the smallest in the Elizabethan series. The method of publication is precisely similar to that initiated in Recusant Roll 1'{o. 2 (volume lvii of the Catholic Record Society) and the analytical scheme there employed is again set forth below in the "Key to the Abstracts", and also on a loose book-mark. All the various types of entry are here again represented, each in its own constant form, the purport of which has been explained in the Introduction to the former volume, in the section entitled "Classification of entries".2 The only noteworthy innovation is the inclusion, in the fourth roll, of "Ex-Sheriffs' Debts", which frequently appear as formal entries in all subsequent rolls. 3 A. General Statistics. With the contents of the first four rolls now available to us, it will be useful and convenient to give a brief comparative view of their main data, as follows :

B. Progress of land-sequestration per Exchequer accounting year. The most harassing punishment inflicted on a convicted recusant was the seizure and retainment by the Crown, until conformity or death, of two-thirds of his landed possessions. An inquiry into the incidence of that penalty is therefore of major historical interest and worthy of careful attention. In the above-mentioned volumes a project for research was suggested whereby such confiscations might be exactly enumerated. However, an attempt to carry out this scheme with regard to the first four Recusant Rolls later disclosed, in the first three, the presence of so erratic a system of enrolling new land-seizures and discharges (especially the latter) that it became imperative, if accurate figures were to be obtained, to group these items under their separate years of origin, disregarding the date of their enrolment. It was apparent that although each item bore the regnal date of its origin 9 the clerks of the Pipe Office were in no way bound to enter the first enrolment of a seizure or discharge in the roll of the corresponding date. While the bulk of such entries were found to be regularly inserted in the next two rolls, stray items occasionally showed an even longer delay. Approximate figure: see note (5). GR.S. 57, Introd., CX. 9 The date of a land-seizure will be found in section E(b) of all first rental entries (see 'Key to the Abstracts'). The date of a land-discharge is shown in all references to the Memoranda Rolls cited at the foot of rental entries in annotations of discharge (cf. ibid., civ-cv). In land-seizures the dating is precise, giving the day, month and regnal year. In land-discharges, however, we are given only the Term and regnal year of the Memoranda Roll referred to-which nevertheless establishes the Term within which the discharge itself occurred. For the dated periods of the four Law Terms, cf. ibid., xxvii-viii. 7

INTRODUCTION

For the purposes of the present work I have limited the search to the first seven rolls, i.e. three years beyond the date of roll no. 4. The new method of investigation here adopted has proved more laborious (but less devious) than that described in the earlier volume, and has necessitated some notable alteration of the figures there published. Its aim however is similar, and may be defined as follows, viz., to discover the number of new land-seizures made during each of the four Exchequer accounting years (Michaelmas to Michaelmas) covered by the first four Recusant Rolls, and, by subtracting the number of new land-discharges occurring in the same several periods, to ascertain the total number of recusants' lands held by the Queen on the final Michaelmas Day of each year. In this scheme the problem is simply one of determining the accounting year to which a regnal date belongs, and, guided by the data in (a) and (b) below, the task is easy enough. (a) The span of the accounting, or fiscal, yearlO in the Exchequer at this period extended from 30 September ("the morrow of Michaelmas") to the following 29 September (Michael mas Day), inclusively. (b) The regnal years of Elizabeth I began on 17 November and ended on the following 16 November, inclusiyely.u Thus, for example, a land-seizure dated "26 June, 37 Eliz". [1595J will belong to the accounting year "Mich. 1594- Mich. 1595". One will likewise note that it is to this same accounting year that all earlier items of this kind, back to 30 September, 36 Eliz. [1594J,l2 and all later items forward to 29 September, 37 Eliz. [1595J, inclusively, must also be assigned. The necessary starting-point for our calculations is provided in the first Recusant Roll. A detailed analysis of the latter indicates that on 30 September 1592 it inherited and re-enrolled precisely 266 recusants' properties which had accumulated on the Pipe Rolls since 1585 (when seizures of recusants' lands began), but that 6 of them had already been discharged. The first of our four accounting years (Mich. 1592- 1593) therefore opens with 260 seized lands shown to be already in the Crown's possession. By the time of its closure on Michaelmas Day, 29 September 1593, 114 new land-seizures had been added and only 2 new land-discharges granted- bringing the total number of seized lands remaining in the Queen's hands, as at that date, up to 372. We may conclude by briefly noting the position at the end of the three remaining accounting years, as follows: For which accounts were annually made up and submitted for audit. Useful information on the subject of regnal years is given in Almanacks for students of English History by E. A. Fry, 107-132 (1915), and Handbook of dates for students of English History by C. R. Cheney, 12-31 (1945). 12 Including, therefore, the whole of Michaelmas Term, 9 October-28 November, 1594. This was normally referred to in Exchequer records as 'Michaelmas Term, 36 Eliz.' (occasionally dated '36-37 Eliz.')-within which (on 17 November) the Queen's 37th regnal year began.
