An analysis of accounts for repairs to buildings in the Royal Park of Guildford in 1514

ALAN CROCKER

The manor house and the main entrance lodge of the Royal Park of Guildford were repaired in 1514 and the accounts provide a wealth of factual information about the work carried out. In particular the names of the craftsmen and labourers are given, together with the days on which they worked over a 28 week period and the wages they received. The materials used are also itemized with the names of the suppliers and the purchase and transport costs. The buildings no longer survive and the accounts provide only indirect information on their character and the nature of the work involved. However, by analysing and interpreting the accounts in detail, some conclusions have been drawn. The wider significance of the results is discussed.
