This collection of Franciscan texts seems t have passed from one Franciscan house to another. It has inscriptions suggesting that it moved between Southampton, Greenwich, and Norwich. Immediately after the end of the main text the scribe, Brother Thomas Grene, has written his name in red. Four lines lower down, a later hand has written 'Grenewich', which suggests that the manuscript may have belonged to the Franciscan convent at Greenwich. Flyleaves have inscriptions relating to the friars of Norwich; Brother Richard Hengam (probably from Hingham, Norfolk, near Norwich); and the Franciscan convent at Southampton.
