XIV. An early fourteenth-century statute book of pocket size with some cartulary material belonging to St Augustine’s Canterbury: BL Arundel 310, fos.9-16v.

by Professor David Carpenter

There is no preamble.1 The earl’s relief is ‘de comitatu integro’. The baronial relief is 100 marks. At the end, the saving clause is in the 1225 position, and there is the tax. The copy ends there. The chapters are numbered 1 to 31.


  The cartulary is listed in C. Breay, J. Harrison and D. M. Smith, Medieval cartularies of Great Britain and Ireland (London, 2010), no.202.
