This thirteen-volume series, which first appeared between 1914 and 1965, is an extensive collection of the pre-thirteenth-century charters and related records of Yorkshire, which had previously remained largely unpublished. The first three volumes were edited by William Farrer (1861-1924), after whose death Charles Travis Clay (1885-1978) took up the task. The series was well respected for the quality of Farrer's editing, which was surpassed only by that of Clay in the later volumes. Volume 9 (1952) is devoted to the Stuteville fee and documents relating to the Stuteville family. Clay was praised by his contemporaries for his exhaustive genealogical research into the extended branches of this family. The Latin texts presented here are accompanied by English notes and discussion of points of interest. The volume also contains facsimile plates of select documents as well as detailed indexes.
