The master of the rolls is keeper of the rolls or records of the pleadings, determinations, and acts of these courts, as rules for future decisions; and he is another chancery judge. He also decides on cases of equity; but appeals to the lord chancellor may be made against his honour's decisions. His court joins the rolls chapel, and he has a handsome and commodious residence annexed to it.
