Cambridge Documents

From Waalt

This page will be segmented when it gets too long.

Add information by clicking on "edit" above. Items should begin with term (if available) and year, together with a letter to allow for distinguishing subsequent documents in the same year and term, and the designation should be in bold, as in this example: H1285 A:.

Text thereafter should indicate what the document concerns. The link to the image of the document should be a copied and pasted full web address (http:// . . .) surrounded by single brackets ( [ ] ), as in this example: []. Leave a line between entries.

The 25-year segments begin with a vertical bar (|) and end with a vertical bar minus (|-). Avoid other more complex codes. If you want to append a translation, provide a completely unique address surrounded by double brackets, as in this example: [[Dartmouth Docs H1275 A Tr]]. Such an address indicates sector and year, the A indicates it is the first document entered for that year and term, the Tr indicates it is a translation. That will constitute a unique address. This will appear in the saved document as a red hyperlink, indicating that it has no content as yet. Clicking on this red hyperlink will open the new document in edit mode.

DO NOT attempt to re-order documents within a term to achieve a perfect chronology, since it will invalidate other references to re-named documents. A document written in Notepad will copy into the site without any complicating code. Avoid more complicated coding.

H1303 A: Inquest on attack on Simon de Stocton, bailiff of Canterbury. [1]

T1316 A: Right to devise by will in Cambridge. Walter de Spaldyng v. Guy le Spicer, John Tuillet, Richard de Thakstede, Adam de Bungeye, and Geoffrey de Wardeboys, bailiffs of Cambridge. Concerning the will of Alan de Spalding, the bailiffs declined to probate the will because Alan was not a burgess, whereas the privilege was granted to the burgesses. This was considered a frivolous reason, since the privilege was not personal to the burgesses but general. Nevertheless, since the writ did not track the words of the charter, the case was dismissed.
