Not illustrated. 1886 edition. Excerpt: ...Botulph. The plan (fig. i) shews that the parish boundary cannot be the same now that it was then 2 Jossclin, 7. Masters, p. 18. The rent was jr. id. per annum. A letter appointing an attorney to take possession, but giving neither dimensions nor abuttals, is in Corpus Christi College Treasury, Drawer 31, No. 95. 3 The King's writ "ad quod damnum" was issued in the loth year of his reign: and an inquisition was held in the same year.

No dimensions are given, but we are able from the following data more
