Abstract: "Contains 40 cases tried in the Council between 1245 and 1482. The Council was not a court of record and had no original rolls. Consequently the records are to be found among the Files of Ancient Petitions, the Chancery and Exchequer collections at the PRO, and the Parliamentary and Council Proceedings as well as in printed series, such as the Close Rolls."
