Militia 1522

LIFE > Law and Order
The survey of 1522 was taken to establish the men able to fight in the Kings wars with France. It was done under the guise of a survey of property valued over 20s [shillings]. Their ability to provide armour was also noted. For the historian it is a useful list of all males of property.

Harness – a suit of armour consisting of sallet, jack, gorget and splints. Term also applies to horse armour.
