Provenance and Acquisition
Given by him to Exeter Cathedral. Langbaine (MS. Langb. 5, p. 353.) gives an inscription now lost: "Hunc librum deo et ecclesie Petri Exon: dedit Hugo archidiaconus Taunton, ut usus eius pauperum, proprietas ipsius sit ecclesie". (MLGB3). Identifiable in the catalogues of 1327 (?) and 1506 (MLGB3; Oliver's Bishops of Exeter (1861), pp. 308, 373).
Presented in 1602 by the dean and chapter of Exeter; though not recorded in the Benefactors' Register, is in similar binding to the rest of the Exeter books.
