The database forms the primary means of searching the class of
records known as "King's Remembrancer, particulars of account and other
records relating to lay and clerical taxation", or, more conveniently, by
the series, E 179.
The database now contains detailed descriptions of every document in series E 179 relating to the taxation of the laity in England and Wales, as well as descriptions and discussions of every tax levied on both the laity and the clergy over the period covered by the documents. However, users should be aware that data checking and revision is continuing.
