PhysicalDescriptionQuarter leather binding with buckram-covered boards, 305 x 128 mm. c.1900.
Paper leaves.
Several sets of original foliation in pencil, red pencil, and ink, with gaps suggesting re-ordering and removal of some material probably during the lifetime of John Parker.
CustodialHistoryCompiled and owned by Sir John Parker (1548-1619).
Used by Henry Wharton (1664-1695), whose notes on this manuscript are in MS. 582, ff. 98-99. His note on the location of the manuscript (f. 98r) is largely obliterated by black ink.
Owned by Nicholas Batteley (1648-1704), antiquary and Vicar of Bekesbourne, Kent, who added documents at ff. 128v-130r. At p. 80 of his 'Cantuaria sacra', published with the second edition of William Somner's 'Antiquities of Canterbury' (London, 1703), Batteley stated that he had many of the documents relating to Matthew Parker and testified by John Parker which are now to be found in the Memoranda book; he published the Archbishop's will and related papers in an Appendix, pp. 36-39.
Batteley supplied extensive notes from this volume to John Strype for the latter's 'The life and acts of Matthew Parker...', first published in 1711. Strype, whose work was written over an extensive period, and who records the death of his contributor Nicholas Batteley while it was in progress, cites items from the Memoranda book variously as 'MSS. Nic Battely' (eg. 1821 edition, vol 3, p. 340) and 'MS. Joh.Parker penes D. Tho. reverediss. Archiep. Cantuar' (eg. 1821 edition, vol 2, p. 467). It seems likely that the manuscript passed to Thomas Tenison, Archbishop of Canterbury, after Batteley's death in 1704. Strype received the manuscript on loan from Tenison, as he recorded later in a letter to Archbishop Wake (MS. 3152, ff. 98-99).
Recorded amongst the manuscripts of Archbishop Tenison in David Wilkins' catalogue of the Lambeth manuscripts dated 1720 (LR/F/40).
