Sussex 1332 Lay Subsidy Assessments

These entries were extracted from some assessments (as opposed to the actual returns themselves) and appeared in ‘Sussex Archaeological Collections Volume 99’ published in 1961 by the Sussex Archaeological Society.  At that time these assessments were located in the Henry Huntington Library in California and were a rare survival from amongst the muniments of Battle Abbey.  The returns themselves were printed in ‘Sussex Record Society Volume 10’ and I will add the Linter entries that appear in that volume to this page at some time in the future.
