This article addresses the reconstruction of the exchequer after 1154 by examining through various classes of charter evidence the careers of some of those individuals most closely involved, rather than by considering the sparse institutional records of the exchequer itself. This approach allows the chronology of the reconstruction to be better understood. More widely, consideration of the connections and interests of some of the parties helps to explain the particular trajectory of development of this institution after 1154, and to assess the role of Henry II in the reconstruction of this part of the administration.
