In terms of its style, its heraldry, and details of its text, this volume is a member of a close-knit group of manuscripts made for members of the Bohun family, who were earls of Hereford, Essex, and Northampton for most of the 13th and 14th centuries. It is possible that it was made at the Bohun family castle at Pleshey, a few miles north-west of Chelmsford; John de Teye (probably from Great or Little Tay, a few miles west of Colchester) is recorded as having worked as the family's illuminator there. The large initial contains four scenes: Christ healing a man possessed by a devil; Christ healing Simon's wife's mother; Christ in the house of Simon; Christ laying his hands on the sick and casting out demons (Luke 4:35, 39, 40-41). To the left is the Incredulity of Thomas, with the Redeemer above and the Ascension below. The lozenge to the left of the small historiated initial above contains the Bohun arms.
