Following the Life of St. John of Beverley by Folcard, at the front of this manuscript, is a sort of cartulary: copies of royal, papal and Episcopal charters and privileges granted to Beverley Minster. The manuscript must therefore have been written for, and very probably at, Beverley.

The first rubric on this page, the start of the cartulary, states that they were translated into Latin from English (i.e. Anglo-Saxon) by Alfred, a 12th-century sacristan of Beverley.
