This volume is not a current register, but a compilation, in two parts, of documents dating from the 12th century onwards, made in the early 15th century, with some subsequent additions. A copy of a document dated 16 May 1419 occurs on f.i.77r-v; one dated 1 April 1425 occurs on f.i.92r. The two parts were bound together by 1421 - see the list of books in the Chancery, Reg.II f.156v. f.132-142 form the first quire of Part ii, having been given their folio numbers after the two parts were bound together. Most are documents issued by the monks, but a number of other documents are included.
