Feet of Fines are a major source for genealogy and local history. The fine was originally an agreement made by licence of the court between parties to a law suit, but by 1314 it had become a convenient and secure means of conveying a freehold estate, establishing a tendency for life or providing for the remainder of an estate held in dower.

This volume summarises 688 fines relating to Yorkshire for the years 1314-1326, including a significantly increased number for 1319-1320 and 1322-1324, when the Court of Commons Pleas sat at York during Edward II’s Scottish campaigns.
