Bibliographical noteOther Identifier: TNA:PRO, C1/268/1
The following conventions were employed when transcribing the document: the line spacing, spelling, capitalization, and punctuation follow the manuscript; reconstructions of suspensions are in italics; ‘u’ and ‘v’ have been rendered according to the document rather than to modern usage. Instances in which it is not clear whether an abbreviation is intended have been indicated by an apostrophe. Squared brackets indicate editorial additions. Continuous lines of dots indicate areas of loss from the manuscript itself: about 20 per cent of the bottom left of the parchment is missing. Most, but not all, of the missing material is likely to have consisted of stock phrases, as suggested in the footnotes to the transcript.
