Calendars provide summaries full enough, for most purposes, to replace the original documents. These summaries are printed in chronological order and do not necessarily reflect the archival ordering of the documents (hence ‘calendar’). They are the primary finding aid for the records that they describe. This series records the activity of the Committee for the Advance of Money, 1642-55. The Committee first had to produce voluntary loans, then compulsory assessments, to support Parliament in the fight against Charles I during the Civil War. From 1645 it also had to uncover the concealed resources of royalist delinquents.
