The Magna Carta Project

XVII. A late thirteenth-century, early fourteenth-century statute book: BL Harley, 409. fos.123-125v.

by Professor David Carpenter

The baronial relief is omitted. There are no witnesses. The Charter of the Forest follows (fos.125v-127).  On f.48v in this volume there is a reference to ‘la graunt Chartre des fraunchises le Roy H. pere le Roy ke ore est’. In the margin there is ‘Nota hic magna carta esse confirmatus’.
