[Croxden Abbey, Staffordshire] Carta Abbatiae de Croxton in Com. Stafford, fundatae anno Dom. MCLXXIX [1179].
penes Ric. Rawlinson, LLD. SRS. MDCCXLIII [1743]. [British, c.1750s.]

Bertram de Verdun of Alton Castle made a grant of land in 1176 at a place called Chotes to the Cistercian monks of Aunay-sur-Odon in Normandy, as the site for a new abbey. "Chotes" has been identified as Cotton, close to Alton, Staffordshire. The monks of "Chotes" moved to Croxden in 1179. The monastery was styled as the Abbey of the Vale of St Mary of Croxden and was dedicated in 1181. Wax seal to lower part. The original documents are from the collection of Richard Rawlinson (1690 1755), a clergyman and antiquarian who bequeathed a huge collection of books and manuscripts to the Bodleian Library, Oxford. In 1716 he was ordained, but as he was a nonjuror and Jacobite, the ceremony was performed by a nonjuring bishop, Jeremy Collier. In 1728 he became a bishop, but seems to have preferred to pass his time in collecting books and manuscripts, pictures and curiosities, rather than in discharging his episcopal functions. At his death Rawlinson left to the Library 5,205 manuscripts bound in volumes that include many rare broadsides and other printed ephemera, his curiosities, and some other property that endowed a professorship of Anglo-Saxon at Oxford. The Rawlinsonian Professor of Anglo-Saxon was first appointed in 1795. He was also a benefactor to St John's College, Oxford.

The Queen's Visit to Tamworth, November 26th, 1843.
The Queen's Visit to Tamworth, November 26th, 1843. Ye ancient towers of Tamworth, say Has Brighter morning been...Type of that building which shall be From spot, defect, and blemish free, When tiem shall be no more.
Thompson, Typ. Tamworth.
Letterpress and engraving. Two sheets double-side. 216 x 171mm. 8½ x 6¾".
St. Editha's Church stands as Queen over Tamworth, dating back to the early Saxon days. It was ransacked, as was the town, and destroyed after the Danish raids of 874 and 943. A Norman church was built in its place, of which parts still stand, but that was later destroyed by a fire in 1345. Parts of the church are made up of various parts of every rebuild, so can date back to the 12th century, and every century thereafter. Drayton Manor was built for the first Robert Peel around 1790, father of Robert Peel the Prime Minister who is commemorated with a statue in the centre of Tamworth. The most important visit to Tamworth and this manor was in 1843 when Queen Victoria and Prince Albert stopped by during their tour of the Midlands. This poem encapsulates this visits and Tamworth's history.
