The following note is prefixed: "The notes and remembraunces hereafter followeinge and in the two leaues before weare taken out of a booke drawen and collected out of old remembraunces and recordes remayneinge in the Tower of London by one Thomas Jakes, concerneinge divers landes and hereditaments of the Hungerfordes, Bottereaux, Peverells, Moeles, Molynes, Mauduits, Hastinges, Talbotts aud others. This Thomas Jakes lived in the dayes of the lo. Frowicke cheife justice of the common pleace, of whom amongst his said colleccions he confesseth to haue bought the office of the clarkeship of the warrantes and of the estretes for the some of 400 markes."

Some clue to the transcriber of these collections is afforded by the following entry at fol. 89b. "Note this pedegree of my ladye Newton, my grand greate grandmother." From this it would seem that the writer may be either Henry Newton of Richmond Castle, Somersetshire (mentioned at fol. 91b, date 1579), or Henry Capell (fol. 91, 1586.)
