Scope and Contents

Seven leaves (290 × 180mm) bound in a late 17th-century Cambridge style between many blanks by George Bayntun of Northumberland Place, Bath, in, or shortly after, 1894. It is possible that this was a copy for Walter Curle (or Curll), D.D., Fellow of Peterhouse 1598 to 1616, Bishop of Bath and Wells to November 1632 (when he was translated to Winchester) and a notable benefactor to the building of the chapel.

MS 467

Immediate Source of Acquisition

Possibly donated by Thomas William Dunn, Fellow of Peterhouse from 1864, Headmaster of Bath College, 1878-97, who retired to Swavesey and then to Milton, Cambs, and a frequent attendant at the college until his death in 1930.


The text is published from Lambeth, Wharton MS 577, in J. Wickham Legg, 'English orders for consecrating churches', Henry Bradshaw Society, vol. 41, 1911. Referred to in J. S. Ringrose's article in 'The Martlet', 2015, p. 8 where some of the footnotes have been reproduced inaccurately.
