[Kenilworth Castle.] 21. [The Castle was built in 1122 by Geoffrey de Clinton, Chamberlain to Henry I. In the reign of King John, the Castle reverted to the Crown, the King paid several visits to it and he is believed to have constructed Lunn's Tower in the western corner. The Castle played an important part in the history of this country, and is associated with Simon de Montfort, the father of the British Parliament, and with Queen Elizabeth who was sumptuously entertained there by her favourite, Robert Dudley, the Earl of Leicester. These entertainments were of times most fantastic and extravegant, and one costing Leicester £1,000 a day is reported to have lasted seventeen days. Sir Walter Scott has made Kenilworth almost as famour as Shakespeare did Stratford. It is thought likely that Shakespeare when a boy may have travelled to Kenilworth to see some of the gorgeous entertainments given by the Earl of Leiciester, and that in "Midsummer Night's Dream" he re-produced his youthful impressions.]

At the Restoration he was favoured by Charles II, helped to engineer the downfall of Clarendon and became a member of the Cabal. Famous for his intrigues and immorality, he seduced the Countess of Shrewsbury and killed her husband in a duel in 1668. Described as 'one of the worst men alive', he was eventually dismissed from office in 1674. He wrote a number of witty satirical comedies.

[Lewes Priory, Sussex] Confirmatio Radulfi de Pleiz Monachis sci Pancratii de Ecclesia et Terris in Iford &c. [Com: Sussex] in libera elemosina. circa tempus R. Stephani.
Ex Autographo [sigillo carente] penes Ric: Rawlinson, L.L.D. Oxon R.et AT.S.S. 1754.
Engraved facsimile of a c.1150 Latin grant of land at Iford, East Sussex to the Priory of St Pancras. Watermarked laid paper, 200 x 160mm, 8 x 6¼". A good impression with wide margins.
A frankalmoigne: a tenure by which a religious corporation holds lands given to them and their successors forever, usually on condition of praying for the soul of the donor and his heirs - called also tenure by free alms. The Priory of St Pancras was the first Cluniac house in England and had one of the largest monastic churches in the country. It was set within an extensive walled and gated precinct laid out in a commanding location fronting the tidal shore-line at the head of the Ouse valley to the south of Lewes. The Priory was endowed with churches and extensive holdings, such as this one, throughout the country. The original document is 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.
