I am looking for the text in Latin of “The Building Accounts” of Vale Royal Abbey. I have consulted the historical Office of the Chesire but they don't know anything. In the corresponding page (Appendix of The Ledger Book of Vale Royal Abbey) of British History UK, I have read that it exists a translation of a certain Miss Stokes from the original manuscript now in the Public Record Office—Exchequer K. R. Enrolled Accounts, bundle 485, No. 22. Can anyone help me to find that translation?

I have written much on Vale Royal Abbey and give talks around Cheshire on its medieval history. I am not aware of the translation by Miss Stokes but wonder whether in essence it is taken from the Ledger Book and therefore similar to the translation given in the printed version published by the Record Society of Lancashire and Cheshire.
