The Magna Carta Project

V. Wells Cathedral ‘Liber Albus’, Wells Cathedral Archives, DC/CF/2/1.

by Professor David Carpenter

I have not looked at this but judging from the report in HMC Wells, I, i, 256 it is the Charter of 1217 with some additions, including the tax, from 1225.1 It is given by Richard Marsh on 6 November 1217. An undated copy of the Charter of the Forest follows.


The cartulary is listed in C. Breay, J. Harrison and D. M. Smith, Medieval cartularies of Great Britain and Ireland (London, 2010), no.1003.
