Description

Scope and Contents

The documents seem to be copied in full with dates. Each entry has a page reference which is preceded by the abbreviation "Dod. no." and followed by the name "David Hughes." These appear to be references to some collection, possibly of the original documents. David Hughes may have been the copyist responsible for this volume, but there is no conclusive evidence as to this. The material is in Latin and the script is clear and legible.

This volume of 112 leaves bears copies, in what appears to be a 19th or early 20th century hand, of charters, deeds, and other documents relating to the Cistercian Abbey of Byland in Yorkshire. The documents pertain to landed properties which were bestowed upon the Abbey.
