The Magna Carta Project

XXII. A late thirteenth-century, early fourteenth-century statue book: Cambridge, Trinity College O 4. 14, fos.129-130v.

by Professor David Carpenter

The Charter here is in Edward’s name and lacks both a preamble, witnesses and a ‘giving’ clause. However it is clearly Henry III’s Charter because the king refers to Henry II as his grandfather. The tax referred to at the end shows it is the Charter of 1225. The earl’s relief is ‘de comitatu integro’ and the baronial relief is 100 marks.
