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.

H1313 A: John Walrane, Henry Karrekeu, Henry de Welton, Henry Kare, Walter Mais, & John le Chaundeler merchants of John duke of Brabant v. Clement de Melton late bailiff of John de Warenne earl of Surrey of the fair of Stamford (Melton denies he was bailiff). Allegation that Melton disregarded royal protections and distrained plaintiffs for debts for which they were neither. Melton justified that he was not the bailiff of the Stamford fair, but of the Boston fair. In 2 Edward II Melton had sold Henry Kare 10 sacks of wool worth for 65 p.s. to be paid to him at the next Winchester fair. Because the debt was not then paid, Melton attached Kare at the Stamford fair to prosecute him before the bailiffs of the Stamford fiar for the debt according to the law merchant; Kare was convicted of a debt of 19 p.s. 9 s. with 20 marks damages. Certain cloths belonging to Kare were appreciated at that value and delivered to Melton. No verdict. [3]
