estates of the monastery, to be followed by the books of household, &c., in alphabetical order. For this also he had made very extensive preparation, and some of the seals attached to the deeds had been placed in the engraver's hands. The following is the breviate of the points on which it was his intention to dilate in the Preface to the present volume. It begins, as the reader will observe, where its predecessor closes, and carries on the history of Fountains to its abrupt termination. The Editor is unwilling to alter a single word.
VOL. II. NOTES FOR PREFACE. ? After the death of John de Cancia, little or nothing is known of the monastery until the time of Edw. I. In the meantime, however, circumstances must have occurred which materially affected the House. Tithes and parochial matters settled. Donations of land ceased. Abbots summoned to Parliament. Another sphere of action developed. Building ceased. Great social changes.
The maxim, “Happy is the people which has no history," cannot perhaps be applied in this instance. When some light is let in, temp. Abbot Otley, it shews the House in disgrace and debt. No such days as those depicted by Serlo. Either the abbot was in fault or some party of the monks had laid blame on him, for he is not inserted in the Catalogue of the Abbots, neither is his suc(cessor.
