The unique manorial and household accounts of William Worsley, Dean of St Paul's Cathedral.

William Worsley, Dean of London's St. Paul's Cathedral from 1479 to his death in 1499, is unique among late medieval cathedral deans in having left a substantial run of manorial and household accounts dating from the time of his deanery. These documents, edited in this volume in a modern English translation, shed light not only on the dean's estate administration, but also on the daily life of Worsley and his household. Worsley's time as dean of St. Paul'scoincided with some of the important political upheavals of the final phase of the Wars of the Roses, and political events such as Edward IV's Scottish wars of 1480-83, and the conspiracy against Henry VII in the name of the Flemish pretender Perkin Warbeck, find their reflection in the accounts.

The volume includes a map, genealogy of the Worsley family, six black and white plates, and a comprehensive index, as well as a full biographical appendix of individuals mentioned in the accounts.
