'Cronica archiepiscoporum Eboracensium a tempore Paulini vsque ad tempus Johannis Thoresby et qualiter sit ecclesia Eboracensis iniuriata per Cantuarienses archiepiscopos. Secundo folio: Bede de gestis Anglorum, libro primo capitulo 290' (15th-cent. inscription on inner front cover). beg. 'Super statu Eboracensis ecclesie' (fol. 1).

This chronicle, ascribed by Twysden (Decem Scriptores, coll. 1685-1734) to Thomas Stubbs, originally ended at fol. 47v, where Barlow has inserted a note, but is continued by another hand to the time of cardinal Wolsey, for which period it is the only text used by Raine in Historians of the Church of York (Rolls Series), ii. 422-45. Two later hands carry the list of archbishops down to Matthew Hutton (fol. 62v).
