G.—The Building Accounts.

By the kindness of Mr. Cooke the Society is able to add the following account of the money spent on the building from 1278 to 1281. The translation, partly summarised, has been made by Miss Stokes from the original now in the Public Record Office—Ex- chequer K. R. Enrolled Accounts, bundle 485, No. 22. Leonius son of Leonius was placed in charge of the works of Vale Royal on 8 June 1278 (Cal. Close Rolls, 1272–9, p. 460), and the accounts show what sums he received and how he employed them during the three years he acted. In 1288 he was sheriff of Shropshire, as appears by the Close Rolls. Another official was John de London, one of the king's clerks, who in 1281 was rewarded by a grant of £40 a year for life, for his devotion to the abbey (Cal. Patent Rolls, 1272-81, p. 452).

During the three years and part of a fourth which the accounts cover it seems that Leonius received nearly £2000. The details of the expenditure will be of interest for many reasons—e.g. the different classes of workmen employed, their grouping under leaders and the scale of pay. The wages given varied according to the time of the year, more being paid in the longer days of summer; the ordinary labourer seems to have received 8d. or 9d. a week and the skilled artizan as much as 30d. The master of the works, Walter de Hereford, had 2s. a day, equivalent probably to £700 a year at the present time. He is placed among the masons, who were naturally the most important class of the workmen. From their surnames it is evident that they came to the building from all parts of the kingdom. The wages appear to have been paid in advance. The custom should be noticed of the employers buying the tools of the workmen when the latter came to work with tools of their own.

Several of the words used for tools, &c., are not to be found in the dictionaries; hence a conjectural rendering has had to be em- ployed, the Latin word being added.
