GREAT BRITAIN. PUBLIC RECORD OFFICE. CALENDARS. CHANCERY RECORDS. CALENDAR OF CLOSE ROLLS
Henry III (1227-1272) - Richard III (1476-1485).
- Writs and orders under the Great Seal addressed by the Sovereign to individuals were folded or closed up and, therefore, known as "letters close". Until Tudor times the CLOSE ROLLS contain royal instructions for the performance of various acts, including the observance of treaties, the levying of subsides, and the repair of buildings. Private deeds enrolled for safe custody on the back of the Close Rolls were especially numerous from 1382, and from 1532 such deeds form the entire content of the Roll.
