This book continues Angelo Raine’s York Corporation House Books, published in the Record Series between 1939 and 1953. This volume covers the period 1588 to 1591, by which time House Book entries were more like traditional minutes. The entries are made in the context of the great social changes of the time: the Reformation, with all its implications for York – the dropping of the Creed plays and other traditional ceremonies, the gradual dismantling of decorations in churches and hospitals – and the settling down of Corporation routine – a process partly encouraged by the important charter of Henry VIII, which fixed the organization of elections.
