Rotuli Hugonis de Welles, Episcopi Lincolniensis, A.D. MCCIX-MCCXXXV The Rolls of Hugh Wells, Bishop of Lincoln 1209-1235 Volume 1

LRS-Vol-3

The rolls of Bishop Hugh of Lincoln are perhaps the earliest known Episcopal record. No other diocese is known to possess any earlier continuous series of Bishop’s registers, except those of the See of York which are said to commence in 1214. Bishop Hugh was also called Secundus to distinguish him from his predecessor, Saint Hugh of Lincoln, who was Bishop of the diocese from 1186 to 1203. This volume contains the following transcripts:
Roll relating to all the Archdeaconries previous to the tenth year of the Episcopate which began in 1209.
Roll relating to all the Archdeaconries in the tenth year of the Episcopate, about 1219.
Vicarages ordained in the Archdeaconries of Oxford, Bedford, Huntingdon, Buckingham, Stow and Northampton.
Institutions of the Archdeaconry of Stow.
Matriculus of the Archdeaconry of Leicester.
Rotulus Taxationis of the Archdeaconry of Leicester.
Adapted from the Contents and Introduction to the volume.
LRS Archive copy contains a tipped in obituary of the editor from the Yorkshire Post Monday April 14th 1913
