Early Yorkshire Charters, Volumes 1-3
William Farrer, Edith Margaret Clay
Cambridge University Press, Mar 21, 2013 - History - 302 pages
This thirteen-volume series, published for the Yorkshire Archaeological Society between 1914 and 1965, is an extensive collection of the pre-thirteenth-century deeds and charters of Yorkshire, which had previously remained largely unpublished. The first three volumes were expertly edited by William Farrer (1861-1924), after whose death Charles Travis Clay (1885-1978) took up the task. The series was well respected for the quality of Farrer's editing, which was only surpassed by that of Clay in the later volumes. The lack of an index was considered by many reviewers to be the only shortcoming to Farrer's work, and so the present volume, a thorough index to the first three volumes, was published in 1942. Clay has indexed the content by persons and places (persons are further distinguished by description and occupation), source and chart pedigree.
