The lower half of this page contains a numbered list of the archbishops of Canterbury. The names from Augustine to Stigand, who died in 1072, seem to be by a single hand. The next two, Lanfranc (died 1093) and Anselm are written in capitals, and those following are in a variety of hands. It is therefore likely that the list was originally written during Stigand's time. An Easter Table on f. 32v was probably written before 1083. The name of Thomas Becket was thoroughly effaced during the reformation, but not the comment that he was killed in his own church 'pro justicia'.
