Provenance and Acquisition

Vale Royal, Cheshire, Cistercian abbey of St Mary the Virgin (?) : Of various inscriptions the most significant for provenance are: 1) (fol. 84v) Letter of abbot of Vale Royal, a. d. 1466, concerning safe conduct for John K[yllyng] who is described as confrater and commonachus noster. 2) (fols. 179v and 198r) account of moneys due to frater John K. (once Kyllyng). Inscriptions 1 and 2 are in the same hand. 2) appears to have been written when Kyllyng was in Suffolk (Kettlebaston, Gedding and Monk's Eleigh are mentioned). Names of later owners are Cheshire names (Weverham, Chester). (MLGB3: evidence from locally specific contents, including obits, scribbles, etc.).
