These documents provide tangible evidence of the feudal system of property law prevalent in medieval and early modern Britain and Europe. They date from the end of the reign of Edward I, who was revered by later generations as the English Justinian, after the statutes of Quia Emptores (1290) and De Donis (1285) had made land freely alienable for the first time since the Norman Conquest.
The date range for this collection is 1280-1304.
