(Buckinghamshire, England: 1322). 210 x 265 mm. (8 1/4 x 10 1/2"). Single column, 21 lines of text in an Anglicana hand.
Some creasing, a little light dampstaining, a few small rust holes, but an excellent example, very clean and in a large, legible hand.
This is a grant of 12 acres of land in the Thornton area by Simon West to Malcolm of Chastillon and his wife Sibille. Dated on the Feast of the Ascension (between April 30 and June 3). The Chastillons were a powerful family in 14th- and early 15th-century Thornton, a small village in northern Buckinghamshire. Malcolm Chastillon, who became Lord of Thornton Manor after the death of his mother in 1315, seems to have been particularly litigious in securing his lands and goods. (ST14030f)
