This is a list of Keepers of the Records in the Tower of London. The position was medieval in origin, and ended in 1838 with the creation of the London Public Record Office. In the 16th century the distinction was made between Chancery Rolls from the reign of Richard III onwards, which were under the direct control of the Master of the Rolls, and earlier Rolls that were kept in the Tower of London, with a designated Keeper. The Masters of the Rolls wished to keep at least a theoretical control over the Keepers, but until 1604 and a judgement against Sir Roger Wilbraham there was no case law to support the claim.
