Carta Martini, Ducis et Comitis Cornubiae concedens Egidio de Gydlegh, nepoti suo manerium de Gydlegh, parcell. manerii de Leghatforde. Dat. 16 cal. maii anno creationis nostrae quinto. Br. Museum, Addit. MSS., 5,485, fol. 101.
NotE.-J. Anstis has written above this charter “The following is certainly an infamous forgery.”
NotE.—The first part was never printed, hence there is no general title page. The second part, so far as it is completed, contains the account of 72 parishes —Advent to Helston—brought out in ten numbers, after the issue of which the publication was discontinued. This is an extremely rare work. A copy with MS. notes by Lysons, was sold at his death, in 1820, for £168; at Geo. Chalmer's sale a copy produced £15. The Br. Museum copy was purchased from Mr. Thos. Rodd, in 1841, for £25, after having been for a fortnight in the possession of Mr. Grenville. The most perfect impression is that in the Grenville Lib., Br. Museum, as it possesses the printed wrapper to the first number of the work, on which is detailed at great length the Author's intentions regarding the plan and progress of the undertaking. From this it appears that the History was
HALS, WILLIAM. (Con.).
to have been comprised in one volume, consisting of 200 sheets, to be delivered in weekly numbers of four sheets each, price 6d. a number. The numbers were to be delivered “ at Mr. Thomas Paine's, Bookseller, near the Southsea House, in Bishopsgate-street, London; at Mr. Brice's printing-office, in Exeter; and at the House of Mr. Hals (Nephew and Heir of the Author and Proprietor of this Work), at his house in Truro.” The second part was commenced first, “not only because the proper necessaries for the first part are not yet compleated, but as considerable additions are preparing by a very Great Hand.” Soon after Hals' death, the MSS. of his history came into the hands of Mr. Andrew Brice, who, in 1750, published the volume containing the parts referring to the parishes from Advent to Helston. After Brice's death they remained in the custody of his partner and successor in the business, Mr. Thorn, of Exeter. On his death in 1785, they came to his son, and on the latter's death shortly after, they were missing, and being advertised for in the Exeter papers were recovered on information given by Mr. George Browne, of Bodmin. Subsequently, whether by loan or as security for money lent, they were with that gentleman, and were lent by him about 1794 to Dr. Whitaker. On Mr. Browne's death, in 1795, the MSS. still remained with Whitaker, until his death in 1808. In April of the following year they were returned by the widow to G. F. Collins Browne, who, under the supposition that they were his grandfather's property, presented them to Dr. Taunton, of Truro, who had married Whitaker's daughter. In 1819 the ownership was discussed in a protracted correspondence between Dr. Taunton, and Col. Thorn, grandson of Brice's partner, but, as Col. Thorn failed to establish his claim, they remained with Dr. Taunton, whose widow bequeathed them to H. S. Stokes, Esq., Clerk of the Peace, of Cornwall, whose property they now are.
