Parliaments and Councils; Collected and Edited by
Francis Palgrave, Esq. 2 vols. 1827-34.

"Volume I. was published in 1827, and contains the Writs, &c., re-
lating to the Reign of Edward I., with an extensive 'English Appa-
ratus, intended to render the Volume more easily accessible.' Vol.
II. which contains the Writs of Edward II., is separated into three
rcry bulky Farts or Divisions, of which Tart 1. and II. bear date in
1830, Fart III. in 1834. Nearly600, out of the 1600 pages of Records
comprised in Sir F. Falgrave's volumes, are occupied with the Military
Writs. The part of the 2nd Volume recently published contains the
Nomina Villarum. This is a document containing the returns made
to Writs tested at Clepston, 5th March, 9th Edward II., severally
addressed to all the Sheriff* throughout England, stating that the King
wished to be certified how many and what Hundreds and Wapentakes
there were in the Sheriffs' Bailiwick; how many and what Cities,
Boroughs and Townships, there wero in each such Hundred or
Wapentake, and who were the Lords thereof; and the Sheriff teai
there/ore commanded diligently to inform himielf of Ike premises, so that
at his next proffer at the Exchequer, he might give full information to
the Treasureri and Barons thereupon.

"The importance of this document to topographers and genealogists is thus stated by the Rev. J. Hunter. 'In it we find direct evidence of the persons who held the smaller subdivisions of the great tenancies of a particular period. Without its assistance, 1 know not how this information is to be arrived at in any direct manner, where the correla. tive Record, called Kirkby's Inquest, (which belongs to the preceding reign,) is not to be found, and where no information of the place is to be gathered from the Testa de Nevil, or the Hundred Rolls. One fixed period of this kind is of great importance, inasmuch as a single line is an indication of the line in wh»ch the Lordship is passing, and may very often be the means of guiding an inquirer to a series of Lords before and after the date of the Record itself; and the deter, mining in whom the possession lay, is one of the chief points in the history of the rural parishes of England.'"

See Gent. Hag., Aug., 1834.

The Acts of the Parliament of Scotland; (1424 to 1707.) Volumes 2 to 11 inclusive. 1814-24.
