Abstract

Although Sir Thomas Mowbray’s 1391 confirmation and continuation of earlier grants and donations to the Augustinian Priory of Newnham, Bedfordshire, was attested via Sir William Dugdale’s transcription and an incomplete cartulary copy, the original charter’s location remained unknown. This article identifies University of Victoria, Doc.Brown.4 as the lost original, provides a new description with full diplomatic transcription, and traces the document’s likely transmission route down to the nineteenth century.

Keywords: Sir Thomas Mowbray (1366-1399), Sir William de Beauchamp (c.1185-1260), Sir William Dugdale (1605-1686), Ferrar-Boteler family, Bedfordshire, Newnham Priory, Inner Temple, Inns of Court, dissolution of the monasteries, charters, inspeximus, vidimus, manuscript provenance, manuscript transmission, University of Victoria Doc.Brown.4

Bien que la charte de Sir Thomas Mowbray de 1391, qui confirme et continue ses concessions et dons antérieurs au Prieuré augustinien de Newnham, Bedfordshire, soit attestées par une transcription de Sir William Dugdale et par une copie incomplète dans un cartulaire, la localisation de la charte originale était restée inconnue jusqu’à présent. Cet article identifie University of Victoria, Doc.Brown.4 comme l’original perdu, en donne une nouvelle description avec une transcription diplomatique complète et retrace la transmission probable du document jusqu’au XIXe siècle.
