1 This is the roll described as the 'Antiquissime roll', which is calendared as two separate rolls in RCH (=RCI rolls §1 and §8). Unlike other chancery rolls, the 'Antiquissime roll' mostly contains enrolments of charters given under the g.s. of Eng., many of them very early in date. CIRCLE offers an English rendering of the Latin text in RCH and supplies cross-references to other sources for the same documents in the footnotes.

It is clear from the RCI inventory that there were originally eight membranes in this roll. Whether the last two membranes were detached by the Record Commissioners to create RCI roll §8 is not know. They appear to have still been joined when Lodge viewed them in 1755. He described it as a roll of 11 Edw. III, an error for 11 Edw. II.
