HLS MS No. 23

Registrum Brevium

ca. 1430



<Preliminary introduction>

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

“Description: [208] leaves : vellum ; 28 cm.

“Summary: With several transcribed documents addressed by Henry VI to William Yelverton, Justice of the King’s Bench, including his serjeant’s writ (1438) and some of his commissions.

“Notes: Irregularities and errors in foliation: some leaves unnumbered; others leaves erroneously numbered, beginning with leaf 3r (‘xiiii’).”

The cataloguing in Baker’s English Legal Manuscripts, 1, no. 50 reads as follows:


“MS. 23.

“C.xiv, 207 ff. and additions.

“Perhaps belonged to Sir William Yelverton (d. 1476), whose serjeant’s writ (1438) and some of whose commissions are inserted at the end; later belonged to Edward Umfreville (d. 1786); and later to Sir Thomas Phillipps (MS. 12224); his sale, S. 13 June 1896, no. 619, to Ellis for George Dunn; his sale, S. 12 Feb. 1913, no. 234; bought privately by HLS.

Census, I, 1026, no. 23; Phillipps Studies, IV, 179; Early Registers, xxvi; J.H. Baker, The Order of Serjeants at Law (1984), 260.”

The script is a standard semi-cursive English legal hand. It looks as if it dates from the first half of the fifteenth century rather than the last half of the fourteenth. It certainly seems later than the ca. 1350 that HOLLIS assigns to it. As we will see below, there are other reasons for dating the manuscript to the second quarter of the 15th century. We realize that we are disagreeing here with Baker, but are encouraged by the fact that Hall independently came to the conclusion that the manuscript belongs to the 15th century.

There are no illustrations or decoration. Some of the writs have a space for a drop-down capital ‘R’ in ‘Rex’ that never got put in. Spacing is generous in number of places, and there are some blanks, some of which, as we will see below, got filled in. The spacing is probably for additional material rather than illustration.

The binding is undistinguished: cardboard covers, which are in turn covered with heavy tan paper. The sewing is loose, though it does appear to be broken anywhere. The pastedowns probably date from the 19th century; the endpaper in the back certainly does (the printed advertisement for Twining’s tea and coffee is telling). The overall interior condition is generally good.

The first folio (and much of the first quire) is, however, soiled and faded. There is a large stain, probably a water stain, at the top of the first folio that penetrates through to the second. The space where we would expect to find the initial writ of right patent on fol. 1r has been erased. That it has been erased can be seen on the image, an observation that is confirmed under ultraviolet light. Unfortunately, the person who did the erasing did a good job. Even under ultraviolet light, it is not possible to read the writ. It is possible, though not certain, that the initial of the king is ‘R’. The erasure had taken place before the header was added, because the header refers to the first writ that is not erased: ‘De recto secundum consuetudinem manerii’.

Fol. 17r contains a writ Protectio pro clero written in a book hand that seems much later than the hand that wrote the main manuscript. Fols. 18–20 (the last being cut off about a third of the way down) contain forms of address, the first of which is to the auditor of causes of a Cardinal Thomas archbishop of Canterbury. The only Thomas archbishop of Canterbury in the Middle Ages who was a cardinal was Thomas Bourchier, archbishop of Canterbury, 1454-1486. He did not become a cardinal until 1473. The hand looks as if it dates from late in the 15th century. This hand also looks like the hand in some of the headers. When we combine this fact with the fact that the initial writ of right patent has been erased, we have some evidence that an older (perhaps late-14th century) register was reworked in the second half, probably in the fourth quarter, of the 15th century.

Many of the headers are accompanied by chapter numbers. They begin with ‘c. viii’ on fol. 5v, ‘c. x’ on fol. 12v, ‘c. xi’ on fol. 15r. The next one, ‘c. xiii’, is found on fol. 23v, but ‘c. xiiii, is found on fol. 25r. This pattern, usually in numerical order, but with some skipping, proceeds to ‘c. lx’ on fol. 115r. The numeration begins again with c. i and c. ii on fol. 115v, without there being any obvious change of hand. The second sequence seems, at the beginning, to have more numbers; fewer folios are skipped. The last one in this sequence ‘c. lxii’ on fol. 203v. We have not checked all of the writs, but it appears that there is no duplication of the contents between the two sets of numerations.

Although the manuscript does not now have an index or capitulary at the beginning, such chapter numbers are found connected to such indices in other manuscripts. This manuscript may have had one that is now lost, because the medieval foliation on the manuscript begins on fol. 2r with ‘xiij’. What is difficult to understand is why anyone one would have used two sets of numbering in such an index, and why the numbering would have been started over again between writs de pastura and those de rationalibus divisis. There is no change of hand or quire between the two sets of numbers, but it is possible that the register was copied from a register that was bound in two volumes, each with its own index.

As we have just noted, there is a medieval foliation that begins, it would seem, with 12 on digital fol. 1. It continues to 221 on fol. 204 of the digital foliation and has been extended in a modern hand to 225 on fol. 208. The foliator did not do a very good job. We counted 18 folios that were skipped in the numeration and 13 that were duplicated. That still does not get us to 208 (it is one too many). Our count probably missed a duplicated folio.

All of these oddities in the medieval foliation seem to be errors of the foliator, except for one. Five numbers are missing between fol. 135 and 136, and there seems to be text missing between them as well. A new quire begins on fol. 136, the most peculiar quire in the manuscript. It lacks a signature (which should be ‘t’) and is the only bifolium in the manuscript. It may originally have been a duernion with the center bifolium removed; there is evidence that something has been cut out in the center. The text carries over from the dorse of fol. 136 to the recto of fol. 137, but after a five-line carryover, the ink, and perhaps the hand, changes. It is possible that the original quire ‘t’ was lost or removed and this shortened quire substituted. Folio numbers were then added to this new quire to match what followed rather than what preceded.

Signature markings begin on the third quire with ‘d’, further evidence that something at the beginning is missing. Except for ‘t’, which, as noted, is missing, they proceed regularly through through ‘z’. There follows, in the ‘second alphabet’, a repeat of ‘r’ and ‘q’, but there is nothing else to suggest that there is anything odd about these quires. A genuine second alphabet begins with ‘aa’ and ‘bb’. The last quire, which should be ‘cc’, has no signature.

The manuscript is mostly regular quaternions. The first quire is a sesternion, and the missing initial quire may have been one too, lacking one. Except for the bifolium, already discussed, which we collate as a duernion lacking two, there is one other duernion, and three ternions, including the last quire, to which one folio and a scrap were added. There is a folio missing in quire 22, and there may be text missing at the end of the quire. Collation follows:

112 (f. 1–12), 2–168 (f. 13–124), 176 (f. 125–130), 186 (f. 131–135, lacks one, probably after 135), 194 (f. 136–137, lacks 2 after 136), 208 (f. 138–145), 214 (f. 146–149), 228 (f. 150–156, lacks one, probably after 156), 23–288 (f. 157–194), 296 (f. 195–206 + ii [f. 207–208] tipped in).

In addition to the forms of address, there is other evidence that additions were made to the manuscript in the fifteenth century. Fol. 206v, the last page of what seems to have been the original manuscript has a number of documents concerning William Yelverton, serjeant from 1438, JKB from 1443–1471, who died in 1476. They begin with the writ commanding him to become a serjeant, and continue with entries concerning him, written in different hands with varying degrees of formality. Following this there is a damaged folio tipped into the manuscript, which also contains documents that concern Yelverton. It is tempting to think of Yelverton as a possible former owner of the manuscript, perhaps the original owner.

We may put all of this information together into a somewhat speculative story of the manuscript. A register of writs, probably dating from late in the fourteenth century, was copied fairly early in the fifteenth century. That the original writ of right patent was expunged rather than simply altered may reflect the damnatio memoriae of Richard II by the Lancastrians. The base script of the manuscript seems more likely to be that of the early fifteenth century than that of the late fourteenth. The copy could have been made for Yelverton, perhaps even on the occasion of his becoming a serjeant. Over the course of Yelverton’s career various documents concerning him were copied into the back of the manuscript or on a separate folio that eventually got tipped into the manuscript. The last date that we have found in these items seems to be (the king is not named but the regnal year is given) 14 July 1461 (i.e., 1 Edw. 4).

When Yelverton died or retired, the manuscript may have come into the hands of a Chancery clerk. That could have occurred sometime between Yelverton’s death in 1476 and Stafford’s in 1486. The reason for suspecting that the owner at this point was a Chancery clerk is that while many different professionals had need of a register of writs, very few would need to know the exact form of address for the officials of dozens of different English towns. The note on what writs were de cursu would also have been useful for a Chancery clerk, but others might want the knowledge as well.

How much reworking of the fourteenth-century register was done in fifteenth we cannot tell. A more careful examination of the writs themselves might tell us more. As it is, we can say that this is a very large register (see the analysis below). There is much more in this register than just the basics.

  Note: Later addition. The first writ, de statu et gradu servientis ad legem recipiendo, is addressed to Yelverton and is dated 12 Feb. 1438. All the items on the page seem to concern Yelverton, and the last one, a commission, may be dated 14 July 1461 (‘anno regni nostri primo’).
  Note: Leaf damaged and tipped in; the recto is written upside down. All the items seem to concern Yelverton.
  Note: Very short leaf, seemingly tipped in, possibly a continuation of the items concerning Yelverton. The dorse does not seem to have been photographed, nor has the recto of the next sequence.

Preliminary Analysis of the Register of Writs



No heading found

As noted, the initial writ of right has been expunged. We suspect that the initial that began it was ‘R’ for ‘Ricardus [II]’, but that is only a suspicion. The earliest date that we have found so far in the manuscript is 1438, the year in which William Yelverton became a serjeant. Within the writs themselves (as opposed to the ones concerning Yelverton at the end) under brevia de statuto, there is a writ formed on the basis of Stat. 13 Ric. II, c. 13 (1390), which the marginalia call the ‘statutum de venatoribus’. We offered above some evidence, principally in the style of the script, that the manuscript was redacted in the first half of the fifteenth century, but suggested that it contained, at least in part, a copy of a register from the late fourteenth century. Let us see what light an analysis of the writs can cast on this suggestion.

Two counts of the writs are given in the right-hand columns of the table. The first counts all the writs for which there are marginal notes, excluding, however, the notes that are labelled ‘Regula’ or ‘Nota’. The second excludes from the total all the writs where the marginal note includes the words ‘eodem’ or ‘aliter’.

The totals are very large. The second total, which roughly corresponds to the way in which Hall numbered the writs in his register ‘R’, is 1080, as opposed to 886. Unlike HLS MS 22, which we believe is roughly contemporary with this register, no effort has been made to pare down the writs concerning land and inheritance in order to focus on the personal actions. The personal actions are, however, not ignored. There are, for example, 240 separate writs of trespass and related actions, occupying 17% of the pages of the register (as opposed to 18% in MS 22). It is just that the much larger number of writs and pages in this register allows the inclusion of many of the more traditional writs that are omitted in MS 22.

There are some categories that we have not yet found in older registers. The section on ‘brevia de statuto’ seems to be new. The category is also found in the printed register (Holdsworth, HEL 2.639). While the category may be new, the statutes are not necessarily new. For example, the language of the first writ seems to reflect the provisions of Westminster, c. 22. Others, however, seem to be derived from the statute of Labourers.

There are also a group of categories following formedon that seem to be new, or, at least, new in this position: Ad quod dampnum; De libertatibus allocandis; Miscellaneous ecclesiastical, including de corrodio habendo, de annua pensione, and de presentationibus; De manucapcionibus; Audita querela, and De supersedendo. The group of writs that we have called ‘Miscellaneous ecclesiastical’ seems particularly telling. There seems no reason why these could not have been included with the other ecclesiastical writs toward the beginning of the register, but perhaps the category of writs that belonged there was closed. Writs that were more of concern in the fourteenth century than in the thirteenth belong in a different category. The writs included in de presentationibus are not neccessarily writs that lead to litigation. They mostly, perhaps all, concern the way in which the king made a presentation when the advowson fell to him.

The analysis shows nothing that would contradict our suggestion that the register dates from the first half of the fifteenth century, or more precisely from the early years of the second quarter of that century. We have, however, not yet analyzed any register that dates from the last years of the fourteenth century, so the very real changes from Hall’s register ‘R’ that this register shows cannot yet be tied down chronologically.

The register of writs would still seem to have been dynamic in the last years of the fourteenth century, perhaps in the early years of the fifteenth century. The changes are fairly subtle, but there are changes. When we have completed the analysis of all of the Harvard registers, we may be able to sketch more precisely what those changes were, and, perhaps, to say when there ceased to be changes.
