The HOLLIS cataloguing may be found here.

The cataloguing in Baker’s English Legal Manuscripts, 1, no. 114 reads as follows:

“Unnumbered MS.
“Late C.xiii or early C.xiv, 181 ff., oak boards. The principal tracts are: Quot modis dicitur exceptio; Hengham Magna and Parva; Fet asaver; Judicium essoniorum; Ordo exceptionum; Summa bastardie; Modus componendi brevia; Officium senescalli; Brevia placitata (‘Les cas de brefs pledes et les demaundes et les jugements’); Walter of Henley; and ‘Cy poet un juvenes houme ver coment il deyt sotylment parler en court’ (printed in translation from this MS., 1936).

“‘Fuit homo missus a Deo, cui nomen erat Kymb;’ (C.xv); ‘Liber Willelmi Crofton Templi interioris consocii, precii xii d.’ (C.xv); ‘MS. 166’ (C.xix, pencil); belonged to Sir Gregory Osborne Page-Turner (d. 1843) of Battlesden House; his sale, Christie, 3 Nov. 1824, part of no. 2718 (cf. no. 13, above), to Sir Thomas Phillipps (MS. 3128); his sale, S. 24 June 1935, to Sweet & Maxwell; bought from them, and received on 6 May 1941.

“H.M. Briggs, Curia Baronis. Here may a young man see how he should speak subtly in court (Sweet & Maxwell, 1936); Dunham, Casus Placitorum, 69 SS lxxiii, no. 14.”

To this we may add that the manuscript is now numbered HLS MS 184, that the note on fol. 2r reads Fuit homo missus a Deo cui nomen erat Johannes, i.e., Jn. 1:6 (Kymb’ is below it and is either a signature for the preceding or an insert in the following line, which difficult to read), that the identification of the hand of inscription that attributes the ownership of the manuscript to William Crofton is problematical (see below), and that the identification of one of tracts as Brevia placitata needs further discussion below.

The pencilled foliation is modern and postdates Dunham’s edition of Casus placitorum (1950). It skips fol. 24r, so that the folios thereafter are one less than they ought to be. On fol. 34r(33r), the foliation moves from the top right to the lower left. Fol. 43r(42r) is not foliated, and the foliation appears only occasionally from then on, but where it occurs, it corresponds to the actual foliation less one. We have foliated digitally to correspond to the actual foliation. We have not included the stub between fol. 105v and 106r, which brings our foliation back to the pencilled foliation. After a consistent foliation every five folios from 106r to 170r, the pencilled foliation skips fol. 175r and numbers fol. 176r as 175r, and this misnumbering occurs on each folio until we reach the end of the manuscript. There are signature marks of uncertain date on the first three or four fols. of many quires.

Except for the initial tract, the manuscript is laid out consistently, though a number of hands are at work. Red and blue paragraph marks throughout. Decorated capitals and scrollwork in a consistent style throughout.

The HOLLIS and the Baker description mention an inscription in a 15th-century hand that records the ownership of the manuscript of one William Crofton of Inner Temple. The Crofton in question is Baker’s William Crofton III (The Men of Court, 1:543). He was admitted to Inner Temple in 1534 and may have been active as late as 1572. The hand of the inscription does, however, look earlier, and since it appears at a bottom of fol. 3r, it may have been deliberately ‘antiqued’ to make it look like the writing on the rest of folio.

We have yet to find any clear indications of provenance prior to the 16th century. The contents of the manuscript certainly suggest that it was compiled for someone who was interested in manorial administration. The fact, however, that a quite sophisticated register of writs is included may point to a local lawyer, who served as a manorial steward but who may, on occasion, have been an attorney in the central royal courts or, at least, dealt with men who were. The inclusion of the pleading treatises might suggest that the original owner was himself an attorney. Indeed, the contents would be of use to an apprentice or a serjeant who was engaged, or hoped to be engaged, in manorial administration.

So far as the date of the whole manuscript is concerned, there is nothing in the main collection of statutes that needs be dated dated later than Articuli super cartas (1300). A later hand has included a portion of the statute of Fines. That statute is normally dated to 1299, but reference in it (in both S.R. and in our text) to ‘rex Henricus avus noster’ suggests that the version of it that we have comes from the reign of Edward II. That fact, coupled with the uncertainty of the dates of the versions of ‘statutes of an uncertain date’ and of the treatises that are in manuscript suggests our cautious of date of “? ca. 1310’.

An analysis of the contents follows, followed by a more detailed analysis of the register of writs. The page closes with the ‘metadata’ that is used for the labels in the Page Delivery Service with a hyperlink to each sequence number. References to the Statutes of the Realm (S.R.) are to the second numeration in vol. 1.


No. Fol. Description
a1 fol. 3r Cy poet un Juvenes homme ver Coment il deyt sotylement parler en Court. A somewhat different version of this was edited in Maitland’s Court Baron. On the basis of a transcription from this manuscript, Helen M. Briggs published a translation under the title Here may a young man see how he should speak subtly in court (London, 1936) .
  fol. 7v ‘Cy poet un Jvenes homme’ ends.
  fol. 7v Table, using Hindu-Arabic item numbers without indication of foliation. Lists the statutes on 7v and runs over to 8r. Fol. 8r begins with no. 20, and runs through no. 41. It lists everything that is in the book except for the dialogue ‘Cy poet’, and the final documents on fol. 179v and 180, which are clearly later additions. The numbers in the table are the basis of our numeration.

34 fol. 106r A folio has been cut out before this one. It contained the explicit of ‘fet assaver’ and the incipit of ‘iudicum essoniorum’. The stub of the missing folio is visible and is foliated 105[r]. For ‘iudicum essoniorum’, see ed. George E. Woodbine, Four Thirteenth Century Law Tracts (New Haven, 1910), 27–38 (online). See also Paul Brand, ‘“Nothing Which is New or Unique”?

38 fol. 122r Registrum cancellar’ domini Regis. For a preliminary analysis, see below.
  fol. 159v End of the register without explicit. 1/3 of page blank. Right footer announces ‘seneschal des terres’.
39 fol. 160r Issi commence le office de seneschal. This entry is in a different hand, with a slightly different layout, e.g., pencil lines on top, bottom, and sides. Printed in Walter of Henley’s Husbandry, ed. and trans. Elizabeth Lamond (London, 1890) 88–119 (online). The more recent edition by Dorothea Oschinsky, Walter of Henley and Other Treatises on Estate Management and Accounting (Oxford, 1971) shows that there is no single text of this, but that it developed over time.
39a fol. 161r Explcit officium senescalli. Incipit officium Balivi diversorum maneriorum. This and the following headings are all subheadings in the ‘Senechaucy’ until we reach fol. 169r.
39b fol. 163v Explicit officium Ballivorum. Incipit officium prepositorum.
39c fol. 165r Explicit officium prepositorum. Incipit officium messorum.

39h fol. 166v Explicit officium porcariorum. Incipit officium Bercariorum.
39i fol. 167v Explicit officium Bercariorum. Incipit officim Daye [Lathahm s.v. ‘dairyman or dairymaid’)..
39j fol. 168v Ici commence le office des acountours.
  fol. 169r Explicit Seneschaucye.
40 fol. 169v Issi Comensunt les cas des Brefs pledes et les demandes et les Jugemenz (another hand). HOLLIS suggests that this is version of Brevia placitata. It seems more likely that it is a version of Casus placitorum. As the Baker description notes, Dunham so idenfiies it in his edition (p. lxxiii, no. 14). The first entry corresponds to No. 19 in the modern edition of Casus placitorum. Dunham ed., p. 4 (which admittedly has parallels in Brevia placitata). The second entry corresponds to No. 162 in the printed edition. Id., p. 39 (which also has parallels in Brevia placitata). Casus placitorum and Brevia placitata are closely related. No two manuscripts of either are quite alike, and the distinction between the two may be product more of modern editors than of the Middle Ages. What makes this text more like Casus placitorum is that like Casus placitorum and unlike the modern edition of Brevia placitata, this tract does not give the count, but proceeds directly to notes about what seem to be real cases or doctrinal principles taught. Although referenced by Dunham in his edition of Casus placitorum, this was not one of the manuscripts he used. It merits a closer comparison with his edition.
41 fol. 173v Issi comence hosbonderie. The heading may be jammed in later. This is the treatise of that name which manuscripts attribute to one Walter of Henley. See ODNB s.n. Printed in Walter of Henley’s Husbandry, ed. and trans. Elizabeth Lamond (London, 1890) 1–35 (online). The more recent edition by Dorothea Oschinsky, Walter of Henley and Other Treatises on Estate Management and Accounting (Oxford, 1971) shows that there is no single text of this, but that it developed over time.
41a fol. 179v Ci finit le escryt de hosbonderie. There follows in a different hand without incipit c. 1 of the statute of Fines. See S.R. 1:128–9. The text breaks off at ‘petentes seu querentes aut’ (S.R. 1:129, line 2). There is room on the page to have included the rest of it. The reference in the statute to ‘D. H. R. avi nostri’, which is also in the text of S.R., suggests that the king speaking is Edward II, despite the 1299 date in S.R. Fol. 180r–v is blank.
41b fol. 181r No incipit. The explicit on fol. 181v calls it ‘Statuta de bigamis’, and dates it to the 4th year of King Edward. See S.R. 1:42. This item was probably added on a freestanding end paper of the manuscript after it was bound, because fols. 172–180 constitute a complete quire.
  fol. 181v Explicunt statuta de bigamis (in different and probably later hand). Vin[c]at cum Christo qui plurima clausit in isto. Erased note of ownership, possibly readable under uv.


Preliminary Analysis of the Register of Writs


Registrum cancellar’ domini Regis. The initial writ of right is to the king’s bailiffs of a royal burough threatening action by the sheriff of Leicester, tested ‘etc.’ The place seems to be ‘N.’ throughout, but counties mentioned range over all of England. The royal style in the first writ could be Edw. I or Edw. II. It is unlikely to be Edw. III, but the royal style could take us up to 1340. Mention in a number of writs of dominus H. rex avus noster suggests a redaction temp. Edward II, but we have found nothing so far that would place it more precisely in that reign. No running heads, but the style and layout are basically the same as the rest of the manuscript. Most writs have a marginal note saying what it is. The following list ignores those that are aliter, de eodem, etc., and so cannot be used to count the number of writs included, but it does include at least one marginal note for each page.

The preliminary analysis suggests that there are relatively few writs in personal actions. The overall pattern seems reasonably clear. The writ of right with variants and subprocedures of it occupies fols. 122r through 127r (5 fols.). Attention then turns to ecclesiastical matters without regard to the type of writ (right of advowson, darein presentement, quare impedit, prohibition, de excommunicato capiendo): fols. 127v through 134r (7 1/2 fols.). Secular matters return with replevin: fols. 134v through 136r (4 fols.). This is followed by three folios (137r–138r) concerning criminal matters, particularly appeals, including a mysterious breve de minis that needs to be checked. The contents from fol. 138v through 147v (10 fols.) are decidedly miscellaneous: distraint for suit of court (138v), account (139r), repair of bridges (139v), common of estovers (140r), right of pasture (140v), de ventre inspiciendo (141r), mesne (141v), debt and detinue (142r–v), assize of bread and ale, covenant, and de fine facto (143v), wardship (144r–v), dower (145r–v), making attorney (146r–v), view of frankpledge (147r). Despite the insertion of personal actions (debt and covenant), minor criminal matters (assize of bread and ale), and procedure (view of frankpledge, making attorney), the general theme here seems to what we would call rights in land and rights of lordship. The pattern in the rest of the register (147v–159v, 13 fols.) is clearer: novel disseisin and its variants (147v–152r), mort d’ancestor and its variants (152v–154b). Quare eiecit and escheat for bastardy are coupled with writs of entry (155r–158v), with formedon jammed in the middle of them (157v). The register closes with trespass (159r–v).
