Genealogical Roll (Creation to temp. Edward IV)
CCCC MS 116 is the third genealogical roll now in the Parker Library collection; the others are MSS 98 and 98A. Originally written c. 1469-1470, the membrane side contains a genealogy of the English kings from Adam to Edward IV (d. 1483), though with a number of later additions. The dorse contains a list of popes from St Peter to Benedict XII (1334-42) and of emperors from Tiberius to Frederick II (d. 1250). More profusely illustrated with tinted drawings of persons in the genealogy than the other two rolls in the collection, it was, however, not part of Parker's bequest to the college but was given by Dr Thomas Whincop (fellow 1670-1682, d. 1713) in 1682-1683.
