This Psalter is named after one of its owners, John Grandisson, who was bishop of Exeter from 1327 until his death in 1369. It was adapted for his use, having originally been made for someone who perhaps lived in the area of Chichester. At 12 August is an added inscription, recording that on this day (in 1327) John de Grandisson received the episcopacy of Exeter; the longer inscription in the lower margin records the same event, in more detail.
