    Repository location: Kew

    Following the establishment of the bishopric of Ely in 1109, the episcopal abbot ceded responsibility governing the cathedral priory to the prior (see the Introduction, 'Historical Background: Religious Institutions'; also TNA E 135/22/25). The priory records, especially the accounts, are now largely held in a large number of collections at The National Archives (TNA SC6/1257/4–9), although the bailiff's accounts of Stuntey Manor are in the Cambridgeshire Archives (283 [R61/30]), and a register of Ely Priory can be found in the Wyndham family collection in the British Library (Add MSS 41612–17, 41667G, 69824A–B).

    1437–8; Latin; parchment; 2 membranes, serially attached; 730mm x 270mm, text area variable; writing on dorse begins on reverse of last membrane.
