This manuscript contains copies of the professions of loyalty, made by new bishops to the archbishop of Canterbury. The script and decoration is uniform up to and including the profession of David of Bangor, at the top of this page. The following entries are in different script, suggesting that they are additions to the original manuscript, which was therefore presumably written after the consecration of David (April 1120), and before that of the following entry, Everard, bishop of Norwich (June 1121). Everard's profession is followed by that of Gregory, bishop of Dublin.
