Excerpt from Dover Charters and Other Documents: In the Possession of the Corporation of Dover

The various documents contained in this volume, with the exception of those included in the Appendices, have been transcribed from the originals in the possession of the Corporation of Dover. They cover the period embraced between the years 1227 and 1569. The large majority of them, as is natural, are of purely local interest, but there are some which will be found to possess historical importance, especially with reference to the Cinque Ports. The document numbered XXVI. Is, so far as I know, the earliest record of the ancient Court of Shepway, and affords full information as to its constitution, jurisdiction, and methods of procedure. The manuscript consists of a double folio, and is evidently the remains of the original Quaternus kept by the Clerk of the Court. It unfortunately throws no light upon the vexed question as to the locality in which the Court was held. The oath of allegiance to Henry VIII. Contained in XCIX. Is published in full, I believe, for the first time. The various deeds have been printed in chronological order, but have been arranged under suitable headings in the Contents columns; and, for the convenience of those who may at any time wish to consult the originals, the reference to the Corporation Archives is in every case given in square brackets at the end of each document. One Charter of the reign of Edward IV. Has been omitted.
