A copy of such parts of Anthony Wood's account of Merton Fellows as are wanting in MS. Ballard 46 and are now among the Merton college archives. This comprises accounts of those who obtained their fellowships between 1305 and 1436, and naturally follows p. 14 of the above MS. (= Ballard 46). It was copied from the Merton archives about 1875 and (fol. 26) in 1883 by W. H. Allnutt. 43 leaves, 14 × 8 5/8 in.
