APPENDIX

(I first published most of the following acta in The Innes Review, xxiv [1973], pp. 139–47, and the remainder in History of the Berwickshire Naturalists' Club, xl [1974], pp. 47–9. They are reprinted here as originally presented, save for some additional commentary.)

Of the eleven documents edited below, the original of only one is extant (no. 1). Although this text was published by Joseph Stevenson in 1834, it has been included partly because Stevenson's edition was careless and partly for the sake of completeness. The other acta are drawn from the following sources:

BL MS Royal II B. ix. (Cartulary of St Andrew's priory, Northampton, xiii cent.). Nos. 6, 7, 8, 9.

BL MS Cott. Vesp. E. xvii. (Cartulary of St Andrew's priory, Northampton, xv cent.). Nos. 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11.

BL MS Cott. Tib. E. v. (Cartulary of St James's abbey, Northampton, xiv cent.). Nos. 2, 3. Bodl. MS Topographical Northants c. 5. (Transcripts of Dr John Bridges, c. 1720, including material lost from preceding source in the Cottonian Library fire of 1731.) No. 10.

NLS MS Adv. 34.4.7. (Cartulary of Dryburgh abbey, xv cent.). Nos. 4, 9. In this edition, abbreviated forms are usually extended, and the extension is in italics where it is uncertain. The spelling has not been normalised and scribal insertions are indicated by oblique strokes. The scribe's punctuation and capitals have been retained in editing the original; elsewhere, punctuation and capitals are editorial. Rubrics have been omitted except in one instance where a rubric provides additional information to the text which it describes. Where more than one copy of a text is known, the printed version is taken from the first MS cited, and major variants in the remainder are noted. In nos. 6, 7, 8 and 9 words and parts of words lost through injury to the preferred text are supplied from the second source cited and placed within square brackets.

Agreement between the canons of Dryburgh and the canons of St James's, Northampton, concerning the church of Bozeat (13 December 1152 × 1177, possibly x c. 1173).
