This page will be segmented when it gets too long.

Add information by clicking on "edit" above. Items should begin with term (if available) and year, together with a letter to allow for distinguishing subsequent documents in the same year and term, and the designation should be in bold, as in this example: H1285 A:.

Text thereafter should indicate what the document concerns. The link to the image of the document should be a copied and pasted full web address (http:// . . .) surrounded by single brackets ( [ ] ), as in this example: [http://aalt.law.uh.edu/AALT1/E1/KB27no171/bKB27no171dorses/IMG_3719.htm]. Leave a line between entries.

The 25-year segments begin with a vertical bar (|) and end with a vertical bar minus (|-). Avoid other more complex codes. If you want to append a translation, provide a completely unique address surrounded by double brackets, as in this example: [[Dartmouth Docs H1275 A Tr]]. Such an address indicates sector and year, the A indicates it is the first document entered for that year and term, the Tr indicates it is a translation. That will constitute a unique address. This will appear in the saved document as a red hyperlink, indicating that it has no content as yet. Clicking on this red hyperlink will open the new document in edit mode.

DO NOT attempt to re-order documents within a term to achieve a perfect chronology, since it will invalidate other references to re-named documents. A document written in Notepad will copy into the site without any complicating code. Avoid more complicated coding.

M1348 A: Yorkshire. Rex v. Peter de Kirketon, Thomas son Richard Gerard, Thomas Gerard de Saxton jr, John son of Alice de Leeds, Simon le Reve de Saxton, John de Brerelaye de Saxton, Adam Lawesson de Leeds, and Nicholas de Kirkeby. In 14 Edward III they went to the manor of John Giffard master of the Hospital of St Leonard, York, at Leeds by Saxton and besieged Giffard and his men -- John de Sutton, Peter de Holt, Robert le Chaumberleyn, William le Cooke, and William de Staynton -- at night. They imprisoned them and detained them until the ninth hour on the following day when Giffard, to save his own life and the lives of his men, made fine with Peter and the others by a palfrey worth 20 p.s. Peter and the others also forced Giffard to pledge that he woud surrender an obligatory writing by which Margaret de Ledes his aunt was obliged to to Giffard in 10 p.s. by way of loan, which writing Giffard, in fear for his life, delivered. John de Sutton was beaten so badly that his services were lost for ten weeks. Convicted, and the defendants made fine with the king. [1]
