Wakefield Court Rolls Series
A number of court rolls were transcribed and published in the Society's Record Series around the beginning of the 20th century. These are now available as Cambridge University Press reprints.
In 1974 the Society launched a new Wakefield Court Rolls series. The rolls are translated from Latin to English, and their contents summarised in calendar form rather than a word-for-word transcription. Each volume contains an explanatory introduction and an index of persons, places and other topics making them a valuable source for all researchers, including local and family historians. The WCR series general editor, Dr Brian Barber, provides background on the Wakefield court rolls, the archive and publications, in a downloadable document.
Publication of this special series ceased with the issue of Volume 21 in 2021. Volumes still in print and for sale are shown below.
