(1577): the original is now P.R.O., Duchy of Lancaster records, returns of knights' fees 2 (28)

2. Fol. 56. Return of knights' fees in the honour of Pontefract, 4 Edw. ii: the original is wanting.

3. Fol. 64. Rental and (fol. 72) feodary of the honour of Pontefract, 3 Hen. vi (1425), the former with additions to 1594 (Duchy of Lancaster misc. book 106).

The returns for the honour of Pontefract are made by wapentakes, viz. Agbrigg (fols. 10, 59v, 68, 82), Morley (fols. 13v, 57v, 68, 78), Osgoldcross (fols. 18, 56, 64, 72), Staincross (fols. 26, 59, 66, 76), Skyrack (fols. 30, 49, 58, 80), and Barkston (fols. 34, 60v, 83v).

MS. Dodsworth 35, 1642, 149 leaves: Extracts from Exchequer and other records:

  1. Fol. 1. 'Collectanea ex Rubro Libro Scaccarii, 1642', partially enumerated in the Old Catalogue: other extracts from it are in MSS. Dodsworth 47, 89, and 141.
  2. Fol. 33. A few notes of Exchequer fines for the counties of Bedford, Buckingham, and Hereford, Edw. i-Hen. vi.

Rowe Mores as Nomina et Insignia Gentilicia (Oxf., 1749). This is the same version as B.M., Lansdowne MS. 855 (see Genealogist 1st ser., v, 1881, p. 17), and appears to have been transcribed from 'a book in the Heralds' office': see no. 5086, fol. 84. Fols. 85-92 and 93-100 have been transposed by the binder.
  5. Fol. 105.
