HLS MS No. 22

Registrum brevium

ca. 1425



<Preliminary introduction>

The HOLLIS cataloguing may be found here. The following items are worth repeating:

“Description: [102] leaves : vellum ; 31 cm.

“Notes: Written in a neat legal hand, long lines, 42 to a full page.

“Irregularities and errors in foliation: leaves 1–24 numbered correctly; leaves 25 and 26 both numbered xxxiiii; leaves 27–50 numbered xxxv-lviii; leaves 51–102 not numbered.”

The cataloguing in Baker’s English Legal Manuscripts, 1, no. 49 reads as follows:


“MS. 22.

“C.xv, 100 ff. The first writ is by Thomas Morton, clerk, against Robert Burgeys, Yorkshire, tested 6 March 3 Henry.

“Bookplate of Rogers Ruding FSA (d. 1820); later belonged to Sir Thomas Phillipps (MS. 4457); his sale, 22 March 1895, no. 330, to Maggs; acquired by George Dunn in Jan. 1899; his sale, S. 11 Feb. 1913, no. 67; bought privately by HLS.

Census, I, 1026, no. 22; Early Registers, xxvi.”

The manuscript is approximately 310 X 221 mm.

Bound in parchment of uncertain date.

The digital foliation corresponds to that in HOLLIS and not that in Baker. The error in the manuscript foliation on fol. 25r noted in HOLLIS looks to us more like ‘xxxiij’ than ‘xxxiiij’ whereas that on fol. 26r does look like ‘xxxiiij’. Hence, this may not be an error. Fol. 25r begins a new quire, and fol. 24v has what seems to be a carryover at the bottom of the page that does not carryover. It is possible that one or more quires are missing. It seems more likely, however, that the quires were foliated before the manuscript was written, and the intervening quire(s) not used. The signature markings which are medieval, proceed from ‘c’ to ‘d’, and there is nothing that is obviously missing.

The quiring is straightforward: regular quaternions with the final two folios missing from the last quire (one of which has been visibly torn out). There are no freestanding endpapers. Collation follows:

1–238 (f. 1–102, lacks 2 after 102).

There is no illumination. Many of sections have a space for a decorated initial that is not decorated.

The script of the manuscript is English semi-cursive. It reminds one more of the scripts of the fourteenth and early fifteenth centuries than it does of the later fifteenth century.

As others have noted, the initial writ of right patent is brought by a Thomas Morton, clerk, against a Robert Burgeys.1 It is addressed to the bailiffs of ‘A’ for lands in Ripon with default to the sheriff of Yorkshire. It is tested 6 March 3 Henry [VI], i.e., 1425. We have found nothing in the manuscript that would require a later date, and, hence, are inclined to push the HOLLIS date of ca. 1450 back to ca. 1425.

1. Possibly the Roger Burgeys who with his wife Constance was the deforciant in a fine levied for lands in Greasbrough (in Rotherham), Yorks., 3 February 1408. See Medieval Genealogy.

The manuscript was almost certainly made for a professional, an attorney, pleader, or clerk of the second quarter of the 15th century. Going beyond that is quite speculative. Since so few analyses have been done of fifteenth-century registers, it is hard to tell how much the peculiarities of this one reflect the concerns of the age generally or those of the lawyer for whom it was made. Our analysis, however, of the register, outlined below, suggests some speculations: Focusing on the types of clients for whom the writs in this register might have been useful, we might imagine an attorney whose clients included secular ecclesiastics (a representative of religious houses would have needed more writs concerning land) and secular persons of the ‘middling sort’, merchants and trades people in general, whom we know had been increasingly using the central royal courts for personal actions, debt cases in very large numbers, and trespass. These were not people for whom inheritance of land was particularly important, and the absence of writs that deal with the inheritance of land may reflect that fact.

Preliminary Analysis of the Register of Writs



No heading found

As noted in the Introduction, the initial writ of right patent is brought by a Thomas Morton, clerk, against a Robert Burgeys. It is addressed to the bailiffs of ‘A’ for lands in Ripon with default to the sheriff of Yorkshire. It is tested 6 March 3 Henry [VI], i.e., 1425. We have found nothing in the manuscript that would require a later date, and, hence, our date for the register of ca. 1425.

Our preliminary analysis of this register, which can be dated with some confidence shortly after 1425, shows that much had changed since Hall’s Register ‘R’ or even from the printed register, which is normally dated, without much support, to the reign of Richard II. Most of the difference is in what is not there. The petty assizes are not mentioned, except for darein presentement. Writs of entry and formedon are not found. Miscellaneous seigneurial rights get barely a mention at the end. Claims for incorporeal rights in land are mentioned only in connection with advowsons among the ecclesiastical writs. Trespass has been moved up next to the writs concerning criminal matters and occupies almost 20% of the register. (The percentage is based on the proportion of pages devoted to the topic.) Relatively little, however – more analysis here is required – concerns the action on the case. A rather large section (13%) is devoted to miscellaneous royal inquests, many of which seem to have been writs designed for particular situations, but seem to be included because of the possibility that the king might act in the same manner in similar situations. Quite traditional ecclesiastical writs occupy more than a quarter of the register (28%). The old personal actions occupy 9% of the register (2% for account, 7% for debt). Covenant is not mentioned, and if detinue is mentioned, it is buried in debt. Combining the old personal actions with trespass, we have more than a quarter of the register (27%).

Speculations as to what this might mean about the person for whom the register was made are contained in the Introduction. We emphasize here that until more fifteenth-century registers are analyzed, it is difficult to separate what was characteristic of the period from what an individual lawyer of the period might have wanted.
