1307 Document From the Reign of Edward I — One of the Few Extant Documents From the King Who Imposed a 400 Year Ban on Jews in England

Incredibly scarce vellum document from the final few months of King Edward I’s controversial reign. Edward I has been both praised and criticized by historians, the latter largely for his Edict of Expulsion in 1290, which expelled Jews from England for most of the Middle Ages, until 1656 when the edict was reversed. This document, written in Latin, is also intriguing as it grants a Bishop the right to transfer property to St. Leonard’s Hospital in York, despite a law barring clerics from holding or transferring land. Document gives Walter Langton, the Bishop of Coventry and Lichfield, license to legally transfer half a bovate of land in Pykhale [Pickhill], Yorkshire to the ”master and brothers” of St. Leonard’s Hospital in York. Eleven lined vellum document is datelined Carlisle, 4 April 1307. Measures 12.25” x 8.5”. Ink notations to verso with some creasing and staining. Tears and scattered pinholes. Our earliest example of King Edward memorabilia. In exceptionally well-preserved condition.  Sold for $14,351.
