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

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.
