House of Commons Parliamentary Papers: Medieval (Rolls of Parliament)


Rolls of Parliament

The earliest records of parliament, up to the sixteenth century, are known as the Rolls of Parliament. The Rolls of Parliament cover the reigns of Edward I to Henry VII (1278-1509**) and are available in six volumes. UCI Libraries has access to the Rolls online through two databases:

UCI Libraries also has many volumes related to Parliament in print, either in the stacks or at SRLF storage:

After 1509 The Rolls were superseded by the journals of the lords and, somewhat later, of the commons.

**Note: The Rolls end at 1504 because Henry VII did not call a Parliament during the last 5 years of his reign.
