The Magna Carta Project

III. A cartulary of Canterbury cathedral priory: BL Cotton MS Galba E iv,

by Professor David Carpenter

The earl owes relief ‘de comitatu integro’.1 The baronial relief is 100 marks. There is a full witness list and the Charter is given at Westminster on 11 February in the ninth year of King Henry. This is said to be the year 1224. Evidently the year was begun in March. The Forest Charter follows between fos. lxv verso-lxvi.  


The cartulary is listed in C. Breay, J. Harrison and D. M. Smith, Medieval cartularies of Great Britain and Ireland (London, 2010),.182.
