Re: Research Help

Also might be worth looking at the previous entries as often they give a list of such Charters in the royal rolls. I did not find much in the Patent Rolls for Kelvedon when I looked but I admit to using a search function so it may be there. Many of the collections are scanned so not always best for...

What are you trying to achive, the wording of the charter or the location of the original charter? The wording of the charters is fairly standard and the charter rolls will only contain the salient points of the charter. The location of the original charter, assuming it still exists, would be a muc...

leather, treen or ceramic. Horn too but identifying examples a bit more difficult. Something robust and cheap though, the former usually rules out ceramic.
