Note of a fine, relating to places in Norfolk
R./1.1/f. 1r · Parte · 3 Feb. 1477
Parte de Manuscripts in Wren Class R

Note of a fine between (A) John Hastynggis, son of Edward Hastynggis, knight, John Heydon, Richard Suthwell, Henry Spelman, and William Stather, clerk, plaintiffs, and (B) Roger Drury, esquire, and his wife Anne, deforciants, of the manors of Yaxham, ‘Cursones’, ‘Gerbrigges’, ‘Reppes’, and ‘Ilneys’, in Yaxham, East Dereham, Westfield, Whinburgh, Garveston, and Mattishall, and three tofts, 100a. of (arable) land, 10a. of meadow, 15a. of pasture, 5a. of wood, and 11s. of rent in Yaxham, all in Norfolk.

(The correct term for this document is uncertain, but Halliwell-Phillipps uses the term ‘note of a fine’ to describe two similar documents in Outlines of the Life of Shakespeare, 10th ed. (1898), ii. 11, 25; and ‘The note of the fine, or, abstract of the original contract’ is the fourth of the five parts of a fine enumerated by Jacob in his New Law Dictionary (1772), sig. 5C3.)

Manuscripts in Wren Class R
R. · Arquivo · 16th-20th c.

Class R is the Wren Library repository of manuscripts for all those works which could not be classed as theological. As a consequence, the class is a miscellaneous assortment representing many fields, particularly history, poetry, philosophy, law, natural science, medicine, and music. The contents of Class R were described in 1901 by M. R. James in the preface to volume II of his catalogue of Western manuscripts in Trinity College Library, which may be viewed online: A searchable version of the James catalogue may be found online:

The manuscripts listed in this catalogue are those modern manuscripts in R with strong connections to materials housed elsewhere in the library, particularly in Additional Manuscripts. Where James did not provide a description in his catalogue, a description has been provided. Where the James catalogue entry is detailed, a pointer record has been created in this catalogue to highlight the entry in the James catalogue. It should be noted that there are gaps in the numbering scheme of items on the shelves, and that the cataloguing of these materials is a work in progress.
