Quittance by the Constable of France [ie Henri de Montmorency, not named in text] of seigneurial rights relating to the seigneurie of Mauregard. This followed on a contract between two parties, the first comprising of the Doya [Dean?] de Billy, escuier, Lord of Mauregard in France and of Manguinard in Beausse, his eldest daughter Catherine de Billy, and his daughters Jehanne and Margeurite de Billy, together with their respective husbands Pierre du Rousseau, escuier, Lord of Monvilliers, and Jacques Daunery, escuier, Lord of La Mothe du Riene. The other party to the contract was Jacques Amelot, Lord of Carnetin, king's councillor in the court of Parliament.

Translated title: Collected from the Patent Rolls of King Richard II in the Tower of London. Late 17th century manuscript. The manuscript contains information copied out of the Chancery Patent Rolls which were recorded during the reign of Richard II (1377-1399). The entries are summaries, written in Latin, of those contained in the Rolls and are a selective collection of the material. The county associated with each entry has been noted in the margin throughout and occasionally references “m.#” possibly to the Membrane it was from or as a reference to a different record.
Physical description: Folio. Binding is from the 18th century, full-leather, calf, which has been blind tooled with a Cambridge panel. The spine was later re-backed in sheep skin in the 19th century, likely February 1860, when the manuscript was sent for repairs by Bellamy Burton (repair slip has been sewn in between pp.8-9).
The manuscript is written on laid paper with a couple of different watermarks, see pp. 57 and 211.
Included with the manuscript is pp.181-182 of The Graphic, from 3 August 1912.
This artificial collection consists of five sub-collections, each containing letters and associated materials from the Jacobean to Edwardian eras. They consist of a petition to the king of England, a letter from a minister in the French Imperial government, letters concerning mathematical calculations, and personal letters.
99 items relating to the fur trade in French and British Canada from the 17th to 19th centuries. Some items (e.g. exchanges of correspondence) comprise multiple components. The collection includes correspondence, voyageur contracts, diaries, court proceedings, account books, indentures, bills of exchange, company money, and other documents pertinent to the exercise of the fur trade.
This remarkable collection includes extensive personal and official documentation relating to the exercise of the fur trade in the territory which would eventually become Canada. Included are significant letters (from James McGill, George Simpson, and Catherine Fraser, among others), personal diaries, legal indentures, court papers (especially pertaining to lawsuits), account books, indictments, voyageur contracts, and more. Of particular note are extensive materials relating to the business of several significant fur trading concerns, including both major players like the North West Company and Hudson’s Bay Company and smaller firms like McTavish Frobisher Co., McTavish, McGillvrays and Co., &c. The collection also contains a substantial body of documentation relating to the Anglo-French Cornud family, which was heavily involved in the fur trade.
The collection also contains unlisted supplementary material prepared by Robert D. W. Band and his estate, including transcriptions, facsimiles, handwritten notes, and bibliographic information.
Stamped on spine: Sermons. Mss. The only sermon that is dated is sermon no. 7, preached at Seaham on 13 April 1690. A reader on 27 Oct. 1847 noted the following: "Curious and contains some good things. The writer is neither Puritan nor Papist".
Fonds consists of 50 items, most of which are letters to Clarke concerning military matters falling under his control as Secretary at War. Several of the letters were sent to Clarke from Mullingar, where the English army established a military depot in 1690, and were received in various places as he moved through the countryside: at Dublin (Mar. 1690); Limerick (Aug. 1690); Cashells (Sept. 1690); Dublin (Nov. 1690); Clonmel (Dec. 1690); Kilkenny (Dec. 1960). Other letters concern Clarke’s personal affairs, with letters from his mother (who nonetheless also informed her son of military matters, as her husband had also been Secretary at War) and from the women who managed his manor at Kilkenny during his absence.
There have been two accruals. The first accrual consists of 923 songs from 1714-1830. The second accrual consists of approximately 1,000 songs from 1700-1830. Both accruals of songs are mainly from the Georgian Era, that is during the reigns of the four Georges. The majority of the songs were published in London, England.
The text of the hymn begins "Did Jesus weep for human woes". The date "c1780's" has been written in pencil by an unknown hand. Research Collections has two broadsides containing hymns. One is titled "The First Hymn Sung by the Charity Children" and is dated 7 July 1713. The other one is "The Second Hymn Sung by the Charity Children" and is dated 20 Sept. 1914. The text of the broadsides does not match this manuscript.

The fonds consists of a bound manuscript, 234 pages in length, containing prayers appropriate for different occasions, times of day, Sabbath prayers, and so on. There is an index on the inside front and back covers. Also written on the inside cover is: This book of devotions in the handwriting of Oswald Mosley, Esq. (father of the first Sir Oswald) who died A.D. 1726 in the 87th year of his age. Oswald Mosley." The book had been started by at least 1707, which appears on one of the end papers, but the precise date, other than completion before the end of Oswald's life, is unknown.
Pasted on the inside front cover is a bookplate containing the Mosley family coat of arms, with the family motto "Mos Legem Regit" followed by "Sir Oswald Mosley Bart., Rolleston House". Stamped on spine is "Prayers Mss."
Most of the leaves are blank. A bookplate containing an armorial crest and motto, "Deo avers leo vinci tur", is pasted on the inside cover. An earlier examiner of the manuscript tentatively identified it as Newenham of Coolmore, County Cork. Stamped on spine: Poetry.
