Early Yorkshire charters : being a collection of documents anterior to the thirteenth century made from the public records, monastic chartularies, Roger Dodsworth's manuscripts and other available sources by William Farrer( Book )

8 editions published in 1914 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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of the pre-thirteenth-century charters and related records of Yorkshire, which had previously remained largely unpublished.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 2 (1915) focuses on documents relating to Henry I, charting the redistribution of land in his move to establish his position as king. Each Latin text is prefaced with a summary in English, and documents of note are followed by a discussion of their content and points of interest, including genealogies of the people involved
Early Yorkshire families by Charles Travis Clay( Book )

11 editions published between 1973 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1973, this collection of notes and documents relating to approximately 100 Yorkshire families who held land of the Crown in Yorkshire in the middle ages was compiled by the antiquary Sir Charles Travis Clay (1885-1978). Deeply interested in the history of his home county, he was held in high esteem for his editing of medieval charters, and the ten volumes of Early Yorkshire Charters that he edited between 1935 and 1965 (also reissued in this series as part of the complete thirteen-volume set) were regarded as a masterpiece. In Early Yorkshire Families, Clay's notes on each lineage establish its provenance, its genealogy, the origin of its land tenure (with further illustrative documents contained in the latter part of the work), and how land was held and transmitted. This work is an invaluable source of information for researchers interested in medieval Yorkshire or the feudal system generally

Yorkshire deeds by Yorkshire (England)( Book )

10 editions published between 1924 and 1940 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published between 1909 and 1955, this ten-volume collection contains deeds relating to all of Yorkshire, from the twelfth to the seventeenth century. The deeds are of local historical interest, and provide topographical, philological and genealogical information, as well as insights into daily life. The majority of the records here are presented as abstracts, while documents in the vernacular that are of greater interest or importance are printed in full. Where possible, the documents are dated. Thorough background information and discussion of the deeds is included, as are notable physical descriptions, in particular of the seals. Each volume concludes with an index of people and places. Published in 1924, Volume 4 was edited by Charles Travis Clay (1885-1978), who was much admired for the quality of his work. This volume contains several documents held by the Yorkshire Archaeological Society as well as a group of valuable documents from the Middleton collection

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.

Volume 7 (1947) is devoted to the honour of Skipton, and covers the family of Cecily de Rumilly, founder of Embsay Priory. Breaking from Farrer's original scheme, the Latin texts here extend into the first three quarters of the thirteenth century to form a coherent group relating to Skipton. Each text is accompanied by notes and discussion of points of interest. The volume also contains detailed indexes
