Compiled by Thomas Wilkinson, vicar of Laurence Waltham, Berks - see MS. Rawl. B. 84.

With an index prefixed.

Occasional additions by Le Neve are here and there interspersed.

The following note is written by the late Dr. Bliss at the beginning of this volume; "Date, 1673. 'Vidi May 23, 1673' says the collector of these pedigrees under the Spenser family of Althorp in this volume." Similar allusions, however, to dates varying chiefly from about 1660 to 1681 are frequently found in the other volumes.

Consists in some part of rough collections, probably intended for subsequent transcription. All the pedigrees are entered in the general index to this catalogue.
