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: []. 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.

A disagreement arose betwen Ralph de Wodhall, Simon le Litster and Roger his son (apparently these three on one side) and Thomas de Wodhall and Adam de Wodhall. Thomas de Wodhal and and Adam de Wodhall with many other wrongdoerscame armed to Rotherham on the feast of St James 21 Edward III and attached Roger and threatened the men of the town so tightly threatened the town that no merchant or any other for fear of death dared leave the town until the town made fine for 20 marks. And they so wounded William de Bradeley and some others that they despaired of their lives. John de Wodhall and Roger del Woodhall parson of Deerfield were maintainers. [2],[3], [4], [5] rcp
