This thirteen-volume series, published for the Yorkshire Archaeological Society between 1914 and 1965, is an extensive collection of the pre-thirteenth-century deeds and charters of Yorkshire, which had previously remained largely unpublished. The first three volumes were expertly edited by William Farrer (1861-1924), after whose death Charles Travis Clay (1885-1978) took up the task. The series was well respected for the quality of Farrer's editing, which was only surpassed by that of Clay in the later volumes. Volume 5 (1936) is the second of two devoted to the Honour of Richmond. This volume is given over to charters relating to the fees of the tenants. Each document is amply annotated and accompanied by a discussion of its content and points of interest. The volume also contains facsimile plates of select documents, and detailed indexes.... salute anime mee et pro animabus antecessorum et heredum meorum Testibus, etc. This gift is not included in king Henry IIa#39;s detailed confirmation charter to the abbey, 1172-81 (no. 239).
