Some of the surviving early Tudor assessments and lay subsidy returns for the West Riding wapentakes of Staincliffe and Ewcross, covering the period 1522 to 1547. The appendices include a guide to other subsidies collected in the reign of Henry VIII, for which no returns are extant, and the township organization of the district. The final appendix contains a new edition of a muster for Craven c.1510. The Yorkshire Dales was one of the few areas of highland England for which such returns were made, and this volume will be of interest to historians of highland communities.
