Note: Where accounts of payments of justices of the peace survive in Pipe Rolls or sheriff’s records, I have collated them with the data from the King’s Bench and goal delivery records. None of these sources is complete, which I hope accounts for the great discrepancies between the three sets of figures. Because of this, I have used whichever set of figures is the highest when Computing the total of days worked for any one commissioner. The resulting totals are still almost certainly too low; not only is it likely that there were sessions of which all record is lost, but it is possible that in any five-year period, the sheriff’s accounts complement rather than duplicate the court records. However, they are the best figures available, and are useful in comparing the careers of individual gentry justices, since there is little reason to suppose that any individuals were selectively represented in the records. Justices who sat frequentiy are marked with an asterisk. The three sets of figures for each justice for each five-year period are set out thus: (days worked from court records) (days worked from sheriff’s accounts) ( days worked from Pipe Rolls).

So Thomas Derham, 1427–31, sat on 12 days according to the court records; on 15 days according to sheriff’s accounts; and on 18 days according to the Pipe Rolls accounts.

(a) Figures from sheriffs accounts (E 101 572/32).

(b) Figures from Pipe Rolls accounts (E 372 270, 271, 272; 273, 275, and 279).
