“Rapin and Hume are our two great Historians. Rapin is important, and always unaffected and laborious; a work which may readily, and ought always to, be compared with Hume. It is full, valuable, and a sort of substitute in the absence of all other writers. Tindal is not unworthy to be the successor of Rapin ; equally diligent and copious, with the same attachment to the best interests of Englishmen, and, like his predecessor, a sort of general substitute in the absence of other writers." --Prof. Smyth. 137 RAY (J.)

RECORD COMMISSION, PUBLICATIONS IN FOLIO BY THE COM
MISSIONERS ON THE PUBLIC RECORDS OF THE KINGDOM. 139 DOMESDAY BOOK, seu Liber Censualis Wilhelmi primi Regis Angliae, inter
Archivos Regni in Domo Capitulari Westmonasterii asservatus, 2 vols, with a facsimile of the MS. 1783: Indices, with general Introduction by Sir Henry Ellis, *1816: Additamenta ex Codic. Antiquiss.viz. Exon’Domesday, Inquisitio Éliensis, Liber Winton', Boldon Book, with the 9 Indices, and 4 facs. 1816 : together 4 wols.
roy, fol. Large Paper, complete, hf.bd. uncut, a fine clean copy, £12. 1783-1816 This most ancient record in the kingdom is the register from which judgment was to be given
upon the value, tenure, and services of the Lands therein described, and was made from the survey ordered by William the Conqueror. It is styled by Hume, “ The most valuable piece of Antiquity possessed by any pation."
“ The most ancient of our · Records' is that known as the Domesday Book, the authority of which can never be called in question, and from which their lies no appeal. The Commission' which produced this remarkable volume has, perhaps, never been equalled for the rapidity and correctness with which it accomplished its laborious task. That task was
""To inquire into the name of every place; who held it in the time of King Edward the Confessor ; who was the present possessor ; how many hides in the manor ; how many carucates in demesne ; how many homagers; how many villeins; how many cotarii; how many servi; what free men ; how many tenants in socage ; what quantity of wood ; how much meadow and pasture ; what mills and fishponds ; how much added or taken away ; what the gross value was in King Edward's time; what was the present value ; how much each freeman or soch-man had or has. All this was to be triply estimated. First, as the estate was held in the time of the Confessor ; then as it was bestowed by King William ; thirdly, as its value stood at the formation of the survey; and to state whether any advance could be made in the value.
“All this was done within something more than a year! The inquisition was made before jurors, and the mass of returns was despached to Winchester, where ready penmen methodized and registered all into the forms in which we now possess it. If a modern commission were intrusted with such a charge, the chances are that the result would be infinitely longer of accomplishment, much more costly, and when achieved unintelligible.”
The preservation of Domesday Book is a check upon family pride. Persons with Norman names have been addicted to trace their descent from the well-armed gentlemen who came over with the Conqueror. The Battle Abbey Roll was often referred to; but, unluckily, it was discovered that, from time to time, the monks forged, falsified, or interpolated names, doubtless for a consideration ; and it is only the notable record of Domesday' which contains names on which reliance can be placed.”—Athenæum, Oct. I1, 1856. 140 CALENDARIUM ROTULORUM PATENTIUM in Turri Londinensi, folio, with Indices, hf. bd. uncut, out of print, 12s
1802 The Patent Rolls contain Grants of Offices and Lands, Restitutions of Temporalities to Bishops, Abbots, and other Ecclesiastical Persons; Confirmations of Grants made to Bodies Corporate ; Grants in Fee Farm ; Patents of Creation ; Licences of all kinds which pass the Great Seal, Commission, &c.
These Rolls in the Tower commence 3 John to 23 Edw. IV., 1200—1483 ; but this is a Calendar to a Selection only. 141 Taxatio ECCLESIASTICA Angliae et Walliae, auctoritate P. Nicholai IV. circa 1291, folio, facsimile, hf. bd. uncut, out of print, 158
1802 This is the Taxation of the Tenths of all Ecclesiastical Benefices granted by Pope Nicholas IV. in 1288 to Edw. I., towards the expense of an Expedition to the Holy Land.
The Taxation of Pope Nicholas is a most important Record, because all the Taxes, as well to our Kings as the Popes, were regulated by it, until the Survey made in the 26th year of Henry VIII. ; and because the Statutes of Colleges which were founded before the Reformation are also interpreted by this Criterion, according to which their Benefices, under a certain Value, are exempted from the Restriction in the Statute 21 Hen. VIII. concerning Pluralities. The whole is edited from two MSS. in the Remembrancer's Office, Exchequer, and collated with a Cottonian MS. in the British Museum. 142 CALENDARIUM ROTULORUM CHARTARUM et Inquisitionum ad quod damnum, folio, with Indices, half bd. uncut, out of print, 12s
1803 The first part of the volume contains a Calendar to the Charter Rolls, 1 John, 1199, to the end of the reign of Edward IV. 1483. The contents of the Charter Rolls are described by Astle, “ They contain Royal Grants of Privileges to Cities, Towns, Bodies Corporate, and private Trading Companies belonging to those Cities and Towns; Grants of Markets, Fairs, and Free Warrens; Grants of Creation of Nobility, from the 11th year of the reign of Edward II. to the end of the reign of Edward IV.; Grants of Privileges to Religious Houses, etc."
The second part is a Calendar to the Inquisitions ad quod damnum, commencing 1 Edw. II. and ending 28 Hen. VI. These Inquisitions were taken by virtue of Writs, directed to the Escheator of each County, when any Grant of a Market, Fair, or other Privilege or Licence of Alienation of Lands was solicited, to inquire, by a Jury, whether such Grant of Alienation was prejudicial to the King or to others. This Calendar is very incorrect, and has also various omissions, but the latter have been supplied by the Record Officers in the copy at the Tower. 143 ROTULORUM ORIGINALIUM in Curia Scaccarii Abbreviatio. Hen. III.-Edw. III. 2 vols. folio, facsimile (pub. at £1. 58), hf. bd. uncut, 12s
1805-10 These are abstracts of the Originalia, which are the Estreats transmitted from the Court of Chancery to the Court of Exchequer, of all Grants from the Crown inrolled on the Patent and other Rolls, whereon any rent is reserved, any salary payable, or any service to be performed.

These are Calendars to the Inquisitions taken by virtue of Writs directed to the Escheators of each County or District, to summon a Jury on oath, who were to inquire what Lands any person died seised of, and by what rents or services the same were held, and who was the next beir, and of what age the heir was, that the King might be informed of bis Right of Escheat or Wardship. They also show whether the Tenant was attainted of Treason, or was an Alien, in either of which cases they were seised into the King's hands. They likewise show the Quantity, Quality, and Value of the Lands of which each Tenant died seised, &c. ; and they are the best evidences of the Descents of Families and of property. 145 TESTA DE NEYİLL sive Liber Feodorum in Curia Scaccarii, temp.

Containing an account of fees holden either immediately of the King or of others in capite ; of fees holden in Frankalmoigne, and the values thereof; of Serjeanties holden of the King; of Widows and Heiresses of Tenants in Capite, whose marriages were in the gift of the King, and the values of their lands; of Churches in the gift of the King, and in whose hands; of Escheats, as well of the lands of Normans as others, in whose hands they were, and by what service held; of the amount paid for Scutage and Aid by each Tenant. 146 NONARUM Inquisitiones in Curia Scaccarii, temp.

1807 These are Inquisitions taken by virtue of a Commission directed to the Assessors and Venditors, 25th January, 15 Edw. III., pursuant to Stat. 14 Edw. III., Stat. 1, c. 20, which granted to the King the ninth Lamb, the ninth Fleece, and the ninth Sheaf. In order to obtain correct infor. mation, the Assessors and Venditors were directed to take Inquisitions upon the oath of the Parishioners in every parish. 147 STATUTES OF THE REALM, from original Records and authentic MSS. 9 vols. in

As the title implies, these volumes contain all the Public Acts of Parliament to the end of the reign of Queen Anne. From the extraordinary labour and talent bestowed on this edition- from each statute having been copied from the original record-from every public act being inserted, many of which are omitted in the common collections—and from the excellent Indices, this work is of course of the highest importance both to the lawyer and historian. 148 VALOR ECCLESIASTICUS, temp.

This is a survey of the whole Ecclesiastical Property of England and Wales, in the state in which it stood on the eve of the Reformation, to ascertain the values, in order to the payment of the First Fruits and Tenths of the Benefices and Dignities. This superseded the survey made temp. Edw. I., known under the title Taxatio Ecclesiastica Angliæ et Walliæ auctoritate P. Nicholai Iỹ. circa 1291.

1811-16 The above is an abridgment of the Scottish Inquisitions, which originate in Writs of Mortan. estry, or Writ of Succession. By the above writ the Judge to whom it is addressed is authorised id required to ascertain by the verdict of a jury the following points :-). Of what lands and
annual rents the ancestor of the claimant died vested and seised ? 2. If the claimant be the nearest lawful heir? 3. If of lawful age? 4. Annual value of the lands, &c., according to certain valuations, usually called Old and New Extent ? 5. Of whom, as feudal superior, the lands are held ? 6. By what feudal service or species of tenure? 7. In whose possession the lands now are, on what account, and how long so possessed? The result of these inquiries were transmitted to Chancery, together with the original writ.
With certain limitations, the above may be considered as exhibiting an authentic bistory of the transmission by inheritance of the far greater part of the landed property of Scotland, as well as that of the descent of the greater number of its considerable families. 151 RotulI HUNDREDORUM, Hen.

1812-18 Vol. 2 is out of print.
The Hundred Rolls are Inquisitions taken under a commission dated 11 October, 2 Edw. I., 1274, issued in consequence of the diminution of the King's rights and revenue, by tenants in capite alienating lands without licence ; by ecclesiastics and laymen with holding from the Crown, under various pretexts, its just rights, and usurping the right of holding Courts and other Jura Regalia. Numerous exactions and oppressions of the people had been committed, temp. Hen. III. by the nobility and gentry claiming the Rights of Free Chace, Free Warren, and Fishery, and demanding unreasonable tolls in fairs and markets; and again by sheriffs, escheators, and other officers and ministers of the Crown, under colour of law.
These abuses remained unredressed until the return of Edw. I. from the Holy Land, his father having died in his absence; and one of his first acts, after his arrival, was to inquire into the state of the demesnes and of the rights and revenues of the Crown, and the conduct of sheriffs and other officers and ministers who had defrauded the King and grievously oppressed the people.
These Inquisitions furnish evidence upon the oath of a jury of each hundred and town in every County of–1. All the demesne lands of the Crown, the persons holding the same, the authority, and how alienated. 2. Tenants in capite, and tenants in ancient demesne. 3. The losses sustained by the Crown in military services, and otherwise, by the subinfeudations made by such tenants in capite, etc. 4. Alienations to the Church, under pretext of gifts in Frankalmoigne. 5. Wardships, marriages, escheats, suits, and services withholden and subtracted. 6. Fee-farms of the Crown, hundreds, wapentakes, and tithings. 7. Courts, wreck of the sea, free chace, free warren, and fishery, and other Jura Regalia. 8. Oppressions of the nobility, clergy, and other great men claiming to have and exercise such rights. 9. Exactions by excessive and illegal tolls in fairs and for murage, pontage, etc. 10. Exactions and oppressions of sheriffs, escheators, and other ministerial officers under colour of law. 11. Unlawful exportation of wools, etc. 152 SCOTLAND.-Registrum Magni Sigilli Regum Scotorum in Archivis Publicis asser

1814-18 These are important records, illustrative of the political transactions between England and Scotland, commencing 19 Edw. I. 1290, and terminating 8 Hen. VIII. 1517.
