Register of writs from regnal year 13 of Richard II (1390) to regnal year 8 of Henry IV (1407). Subjects of writs include lands and manors held by various men from the King; instructions to the King's bailiffs; tenancies and inheritances; and ecclesiastical holdings and prebendaries. The register is preceded by an alphabetical index covering more than half the register (f. 1r-151v) and followed by a subject index covering the remainder of the register (f. 152v-204r). 6 writs from the reign of Mary I were added in the 16th century on blank pages before the second index (f. 204v-205v). Following the second index are three menus, written in a mix of Middle French, Middle English, and Latin, for dinners probably given at Oxford and London in 1427 and 1428. One was for the commencement of Robert Nevill, another for Robert or Richard Babthorpe, and the third for unspecified sargeants.
