    Entries on f 3 follow a marginal date of 23 September (1635). This page is headed 'The Towne of Southamptone Debitor'; the mayor is here using the terminology used in the Books of Debts (SCA: SC5/2/1-2), in which payments by the town are entered as debts ('debitor') and receipts to the town as credits.

    Titles on original covers identify these as the mayors' books of 'casualties': here meaning fines and payments for a variety of civic expenses as well as accounts of poor relief, the last often taking up the largest part of the book. These books, each covering a single accounting year from Michaelmas to Michaelmas, appear to be rough accounts which were copied into the Books of Fines at the end of each accounting year. Some have their original parchment covers, others have replacement paper covers of the late eighteenth century.
