The historical (perhaps original) arrangement of the pre-Commonwealth material seems to have been preserved by Stevenson, and these items have been kept in the bundles or files in which they are found. The Estreat Rolls appear to have been kept separately, and are listed separately in the list following.
Post-Commonwealth material no longer retains any original arrangement, and so each document has been listed separately.
