    Walter Bagot (1557–1622) was holder of the title and estate during this time. The manuscript is very damaged. It consists, in its present form, of a series of preserved and mounted fragmentary leaves and bifolia, some numbered in modern pencil, others not. The order of preservation is not the order in which the leaves originally occurred. The manuscript is partial, the remainder 'cannot be produced' and may have been destroyed as unsalvageable by the record office. Each mounted leaf containing an extract is described below as a separate item from a box of disjunct leaves.

    c 1574–1619; English; paper: Item 1: 1613; conjugate leaf; 310mm x 190mm; foliated in modern pencil as ff 61 and 64 (found within the bifolium is another conjugate leaf, foliated ff 62 and 63); damaged at right edge; Item 2: dates obliterated on most leaves in group, but conjugate leaf f 85 is dated 1615; conjugate leaf; approximately 310mm x 190mm; foliated ff 85 and 87, part of a group foliated ff 81–92; damaged at top; Item 3: 1619; conjugate leaf; approximately 310mm x 190mm; foliated ff 126 and 128; damaged at left edge.
