History:

Ker notes that 'the only clue to the history of the manuscript' seems to be the note on fol. 389: 'Magister Willelmus de Weleburne habet quaternum qui hic deest de notulis super actus [apostolorum]', possibly in the same hand as the English notes (1957, p. 331). Master William may have been a canon of St. Paul's Cathedral in 1237, and may have owned a copy which was in 1295 among the possessions of the cathedral. (See Ker 1957, p. 331 and also Pulsiano 1996, p. 58).
