From 1,252 testaments disposing of real property in London and a variety of deeds, mainly conveyance of land, were noted by the clerks of the Court of Husting on parchment rolls. The resulting texts are a unique record of the shape and structure of the city from the thirteenth to the fifteenth century.

Now conveniently accessible for the first time, the Husting Rolls allow researchers to trace the histories of individual properties and of streets, markets, and other features of the city. Successive generations of owners and tenants, and a rich nexus of relationships, can be distinguished while the forms of the rolls throw light on the workings of the Husting Court itself.
