RN #190A Patent Rolls

Patent Rolls are documents that give one aspect of English history.  Henry III reigned 56 years beginning 1216 AD.  This notebook contains an index to the first of this series, Vol. I, years 1216 - 1225 AD.  I have used it many times to determine the used of certain surnames in English documents.  The name JONES does not appear.  Wales (the Welsh, Wallis) begins with "march of, 109" and "homage of, done at Worcester, 142".  The numbers are the pages where this information has been recorded.
