Have checked through Vols. 6, 7, 8, 9 and part of vol. 4. There are many more volumes.

between 1220 - 1300. I have noted down the names of other people mentioned in
the documents to help approximate their dates. The number in brackets was
written next to each entry, and is presumably the page number in the original
