Parliamentary Rolls

The rolls of parliament were the official records of the meetings of the English parliament from the reign of Edward I (1272 – 1307) until the reign of Henry VII (1485 – 1509), after which they were superseded by the Journals of the Lords and, somewhat later, of the Commons.  Where appropriate, appendices of supplementary material are also provided, including information about the parliament in question derived from sources other than the roll. Much of this supplementary material consists of petitions to parliament, which are discussed in separate sections.
The texts and translations of the rolls, together with the introductions and appendices, are listed in chronological order under the names of the kings during whose reigns they were held.

1272-1509: The Parliament Rolls of Medieval England (PROME) provides full-text access to the official records of the meetings of the English parliament from the reign of Edward I (1272-1307) to Henry VII (1485-1509).
