Scope and content
The book is a series of different manuscripts, gathered together into one volume. The compiler has numbered all the pages and included an overall index. The pages come from various sources causing repeats of individuals and in a few places incomplete entries.
Immediate source of acquisition
Manuscript was once in the library of the Earl of Egmont, d. 1748. A previous owner or examiner of the manuscript, Thomas Fitzroy Fenwick, successor to the Phillips Library, has postulated that part of the manuscript may be in the hand of Francis Thynne, the herald. Date of acquisition or later provenance are not known.
