The rolls of parliament were the official records of the meetings of the English parliament from the reign of Edward I (1272-1307) until the reign of Henry VII (1485-1509), after which they were superseded by the journals of the lords, and, somewhat later, the commons. The rolls presented here cover the first years of the rule of Edward I, whence the first records of parliament survive. During his reign parliament gained a new importance and centrality in the lives of the king's subjects - in part a result of the king's decision to encourage his subjects to submit written petitions to parliament, in part because of the role parliament played in the drafting and approval of a major programme of legislative change, in part because it was largely in parliament that the king obtained consent to the levying of the taxation that was required for his major military expenditure. This new edition of the documents is presented with the first ever translation, together with related materials; it also includes a discussion of all the known parliaments of the reign.
