The margins are full of erased entries (see Chronicles of Stephen, etc. III, p. lxxi)
On f. 10r (margin) is a late note of the foundation of Cricklade university and on f. 13r in the same hand a note of the foundation of Oxford. A few other notes in the same hand occur

So far the text, as pointed out by Dr Luard (Annales Monasterienses II p. xi), is the source of the Winchester Annals (Domit. XIII): the resemblance is fairly exact down to 1066

The colophon (if any) is obscured by a patch (the greater part of two leaves) of a closely written xiiith cent. Canon Law MS. pasted over the lower part of f. 43v
There is but one other copy of this Chronicle (Domit. XIII) in the same hand: according to Howlett both are in the autograph of Richard of Devizes. He assigns the date 1192-1202 to both MSS

On the margins of the patch stuck on f. 43v are some xvith cent. notes referring to the following treatise
43v
“Hec Historia explicit in ultimo anno Henrici (corr. to Edwardi) secundi. Hoc est a. d. 1327. Verisimile est hunc Authorem fuisse Petrus de Ickham. et alius quispiam ab anno 1272 continuauit historiam ad annum 1327. vide Bale 327”

Cantabrigia facta uniuersitas per Curiam Romanam 1320”
43v
“Author horum annalium fuit Radulphus Remington clericus Eboracensis notarius publicus qui interfuit in illo processu Cantabrigiae et habetur in registro Collegii Corporis Christi. In libro qui dicitur Miscellanea Cantabrigiae fol. 135 Et illic introducitur Johannes episcopus seruus seruorum dei qui fecit Cantabrigiam uniuersitatem tempore Edouardi secundi etc.”
43v
Another annotator refers to the Bull of Honorius 624
43v
A third adds: “Forte author huius non fuit Rad. Remington notarius publicus Ebor. qui vixit a. d. 1430 ut in recordis Cantabrigiae et in pag. 126 in Mescellanea Cantabrigiae apparet”
Are some of these notes by Dr Caius?

After a few lines the accession of Richard II is noted, and it is said that

“rex iste Ric. versus Salop. itinerans pro fine parliamenti faciendo infra Monasterium de Lilleshull in festo Conuersionis Sancti Paule viz. nocte precedente et die illo nocteque sequente qui tunc dies veneris fuit perendi- (91v) navit cum Regina sua filia regis ffrancie” . After the king's departure; “Dux vero Lancastrie finito parliamento captus febre cum uxore sua Katerina ad monasterium de Lilleshull reuersus est” . He was received (with his wife) into the fraternity; so also was Will. Chetewynd. “Dux vero conuentui xx libros auri contulit. Predicto vero anno isti in fraternitatem recepti fuerunt. Dux predictus cum uxore sua et armigero predicto Dominus Joh. de Cherleton. Dom. de Powys. Ric. Chelmewyk' armiger prox. regi. Will. Thornehull dominus de Eten Costeyn et fflorancia uxor eius.

The Laudian MS. Misc. 730 (in the Bodleian Library) of “ Peter of Ickham ” (which ends at 1272) has the note “Hic multa desunt ab hoc anno 1272 usque ad annum 1327 et hoc totum habetur in veteri libro ligato cum Richardo Divisiensi.”
