'An exa[c]t Catalogue of all the Nobility of the English nation from the Norman Conquest to this present yeare 1667 [altered to 1685] ... by J. T. To which is added [fol. 39] the [Lord High Stewards and Constables,] Lord Chancellors, & Lo: Keepers and all the Great ministers of State etc.', to 1685.

The first list is roughly chronological according to date of creation, and carried on from 1685 to 1723 in another hand, perhaps that of J. Warburton, see fol. 79.

At fol. 75 is 'A catalogue of Knight Banneretts', 1300-about 1550; at fol. 78 an index of subjects, in the later hand: and there are a few other miscellaneous lists. The later hand alters 'J. T.' to 'J. Tilston Esqr.'
