[Musters were assemblies of the militia for the purpose of the inspection of men and equipment by the Lord Lieutenant. Muster rolls were produced detailing the names of those present and the equipment which they produced. The muster rolls were returned to the secretaries of state. In the 16th and 17th centuries all able-bodied men were liable for military service, armed with their own weapons and armour according to their income.]
