Excerpt from Memorials of the Abbey of St. Mary of Fountains, Vol. 3: Consisting of Bursars' Books, 1456-1459, and Memorandum Book of Thomas Swynton, 1446-1458

This book is a volume at present consisting of 118' leaves, size about 8 - 5 by 5% inches. The first three leaves are not numbered, then come leaves numbered in the original hand on the verso of each, 1, 2, 3, to 110, 102 being repeated, then in tens, 120 to 190, then, on the recto of each, 200, 201, 202, then eleven leaves not numbered. For present convenience all the leaves after 110 are now numbered in pencil consecu tively down to 132, the last fifteen leaves being lost, as was noticed by Walbran in 1861 the actual number is, as stated above, 118. Capital letters from A to S are set on the tops of the leaves, A on 1 to 12, B on 12 to 24, and so on; the inten tion appears to have been to enter places under their initial letters, Aldfield under A, Baldersby under B, and so on, but this plan has not been adhered to with any consistency after the first few pages.
