Registra quorundam abbatum monasterii S. Albani, qui saeculo XVmo. floruere
Between 1863 and 1876, the Rolls Series published several works from or about the abbey of St Albans, edited by Henry Thomas Riley (1816–78) under the rubric 'Chronica monasterii S. Albani'. This two-volume contribution, covering the later fifteenth century, appeared in 1872–3. Volume 2 contains material from MS. Rawlinson B. 332 (some of whose outer leaves were lost) relating to events from 1459 to 1488, beginning with records of church appointments during the final years of the abbacy of John Whethamstede, and covers the abbacies of William Albon (1465–76) and William of Wallingford (from 1476). Volume 2 also includes an introduction, a detailed summary of the content, and English side-notes to the main Latin text. The appendices include documents from the St Albans almoner's office (MS. Lansdowne 375) and letters by Whethamstede (Cotton Claud. D. i), an index to both volumes, and a glossary.
