Minute and account books relating to the Incorporation of Perth Wrights.

Identifier: MSS.19288-19289

Scope and Contents

These records of the Wrights, bowyers, coopers, chirurgeons, parchment makers, masons, and glaziers, who formed the Wrights Incorporation, reveal their collective interest in the regulations of trading standards and the control of admission. There are also indications of the social function of the Incorporation and their involvement with the pre-Reformation Church.

The haphazard nature of the entries in both volumes suggests that they may possibly be rough copies kept by the Deacon for his own reference rather than the formal books of the Incorporation.
