The brief introduction details the account that records John Roges and Henry de Middleton’ and the household of an unidentified lord. The account is very substantial, its expenditure averaging more than 1 each day. This account seems to be a subsidiary account to the primary household diet account. It was written on a single membrane by two hands; it was begun by a first hand with additions by a second in an idiosyncratic form of Anglo-Norman French.
