[Note: each line of the original record is transcribed separately. Queries and uncertain readings are in curly brackets.] 

The first transcription is from a single membrane in the Special Collections of the National Archives. The second is from the enrolled account in the Exchequer Accounts in the National Archives. Both versions of the accounts cover the same period and include virtually the same information, except that some money noted as unpaid in the first has been paid by the second account. It is likely that the first account is a draft and the enrolled account is the fair account, recorded after outstanding issues had been resolved.
