Our readers will find in the sixth and succeeding numbers of the Archaeologia Cambrenses a transcript of an exceedingly interesting M.S., the property of tlie Venerable Archdeacon Newcome, which appears to be a portion of the Court Bolls of the Lordship, and is entitled " Statutes and Ordinances made at the Great Court, held at Castle Leon, in the 7th of Edward 4th, 1467. The proceedings appear to be written promiscuously in Latin and English, sometimes one language is used, sometimes the other; but we shall confine ourselves to the latter one, and give the substance only of this document, which may be consulted by those who wish to see it at length, in the work we have mentioned above. The proceedings purport to have taken place at the Great Court, at the Common Place or Hall, near the Castle of Lions, before Sir W. Stanley, Knight, James Hubert, Richard Eulmerston, and George Hooton, Com¬ missioners and Counsellors of John Duke, of Norfolk; and George Nevyll, William Skotte, and Richard Jakes, Commissioners of Sir Edward Nevyll, Knight, Lord of Abergavenny, Lords of the Lordship of Bromfield and NO.
