'College bills to Michaelmas 1748; Mr Masters' bills', 1742 - 1748

Reference Code: GBR/0268/CCCC02/B/52

Scope and Contents

In these years the college expenses are organised in the Audit Book under the headings: 'Reditus resolutae' (quit-rents, etc.); 'Erogata in pios usus' (charitable donations for which it is unusual to find a receipt); Expensa extraordinaria' with the sub-headings Bursar; Cook; Butler; Harwood (laundress' wages); Gardener; Porter; Wine; Repairs (smith, carpenter, bricklayer, ironmonger, glazier, brazier, painter; stonemason; joiner); Taxes; Certain Expenses and Uncertain expenses. Not every entry in the Audit Book can be matched by a voucher; and there are also vouchers which seem not to be represented in the Audit Book; these have been placed with comparable vouchers.
For each year it is conspicuous that the vouchers, so far from ending at Michaelmas, nearly always run into the early months of the following year.
