Collectanea Edited for the Worcestershire Historical Society

Excerpt from Collectanea Edited for the Worcestershire Historical Society A very few remarks to be required to supplement the Introductions furnished by the Editors to the several pieces included in this collection. I. The Charters from St. Swithun's form a valuable addition to the "Original Charters relating to the City of Worcester," edited by Mr. Harvey Bloom in 1909. II. The photographic reproduction of the Ms. of the "Ruridecanal Court, 1300," which appears as the frontispiece of this Volume, will give some idea of the difficulties encountered by Mr. Pearson in its transcription. An examination of the places mentioned in the record shews plainly that the Chapter, whose sittings are recorded, is that of a single Deanery, that of Wich, which, it must be remembered, included in the year 1300 the two modern Deaneries of Droitwich and Bromsgrove. It will be seen, for example, that the Chapter of Wich have no jurisdiction over Alice of Hartlebury (p. 78); in the same diocese, but in the Deanery of Kidderminster. When this is realized, the identification of some places mentioned becomes easier. Thus "Norton" can be neither Norton, near Evesham, nor Norton by Kempsey, nor yet Bredon's Norton, since these places were in the Deaneries of the Vale, of Worcester, and of Pershore respectively. It must therefore be King's Norton. In like manner the "Opton" of our record is necessarily Upton Warren, perhaps the least well known of the three Uptons in the County, but the only one in the Deanery of Wich. III. It seems highly probable from Mr. Gordon's description that the volume containing the Rental which he has edited once belonged to the Monastic Library of Worcester. Nothing is more common than to find fragments of rentals and accounts as fly leaves of the Ms. volumes still remaining in the Library.
