Documents of Title - Cartularies
A manuscript volume containing several sections, bound up as a single item, probably by Arthur Gregory (1540-1604).
The most important sections are registers of deeds, compiled, c. 1300, by the monks of Coventry Priory and Stoneleigh Abbey, relating to their estates in and around Coventry. Other sections, registers of deeds relating to Kingshill and Stivichall, and an illuminated calendar, were doubtless also compiled there.
These registers, together with many of the original deeds, were acquired by the Gregory family in the late seventeenth century when they purchased lands in and around Coventry which had belonged to Coventry Priory and Stoneleigh Abbey prior to the Dissolution of the Monasteries.
