Incip. "In diebus sanctissimi regis Edwardi Confessoris, anno ejusdem penultimo, Haraldus Godwini comitis filius, transiens in Flandriam;" et desin. (in fol. 35.) "— et bonus bos pro duobus solidis, bona vacca pro xxd., unus bonus multo pro iiid. vendebatur."

Manu Thomæ Hearne transcriptum est hoc chronicon ex illo codice, ad Jac. West pertinente, de quo habuit Vitam Edw. II. una cum Annalibus Joh. de Trokelowe impressam. Sic de opere in fine voluminis (fol. 45) disserit vir ille: "As I take it, the history of Edw. II. in this MS. was done by a quite different author from the rest, which seems to be extracts only from other writers. Yet both were done by some hand or hands of Malmesbury. The writing of the first part of the MS. is different for the most part from the writing of the life of Edw. II. I believe they were formerly bound in two different volumes, notwithstanding bound together, it may be by Sir Gervase Holies, now." etc. Quædam e Gul. Malmesburiensi desumpta esse videntur.

Ad calcem chronici hujus sequitur (a fol. 35 ad fol. 44) "Recapitulacio de rege Ricardo et ejus successoribus," ab anno 1198 ad annum 1262, quæ est ad verbum transcripta e chronico Walteri de Hemmingford, sive Hemingburgh, sicut exstat apud Historiæ Anglicanæ Scriptores, ed. Th. Gale, vol. ii. pp. 550–580, et in editione cura H. C. Hamilton anno 1848 impressa, vol. i., pp. 227–309.

Denique sequuntur (ex eodem codice) catalogus abbatum Malmesburiensium et carta quædam ad eandem abbatiam pertinens.
