308148rWrit to the mayor and sheriffs of London concerning the staple, 6 Edw. 3. (Not in S.R.) 
  Heading: (1) De termino pasch’ de dote. (2) De termino sce trinitatis de dote. (3) Expliciunt dies com’es de dote Incipiunt statuta de Stapeles.
  Note: This is not the well-known Ordinance of the staple, 27 Edw. 3, stat. 2, but a writ of 1332, appointing places where the staple of wool and leather should be held. It was apparently revoked in the following year. See Baker, Cambridge Legal Manuscripts 401, 545.

  Heading: Explicit Statutu’ De Staples.
  Note: Additional text in a different hand/ink, difficult to read. It seems to be giving a rule about tenancy by curtesy. It deserves more attention than we have been able to give it.

  Note: The statute begins without a heading, in mid-line, about a quarter of the way up from the bottom of the page. The heading on the next page probably is a garbled attempt to give the incipit of the statute ‘Al honor de dieu’.
