D & R. Cromarty, (eds.) The Wealth of Shrewsbury in the Early Fourteenth Century: Six Local Subsidy Rolls 1297 to 1322: Text and Commentary, 1993, ISBN 0 9501227 3 5. 125 pp. Shrewsbury is fortunate to have six local subsidy rolls, a number greater than for any other town. They record the assessment of the taxpaying population’s wealth from 1297 to 1322. The rolls consist of lists of names followed by inventories of taxed goods, a summation of their values and then the tax due as a fraction which the Crown demanded. The authors have looked into the historical background of the taxes at local and national levels, and have used the evidence of the inventories to discuss the social structure of the town and its economy.
