Clergy, the religious and the faithful in Britain and Ireland (1471-1484)
These are abstracts of the entries relating to Great Britain and Ireland from the Lateran and Vatican Regesta of pope Sixtus IV. Many of these entries relate to clerical appointments and disputes, but there are also indults to devout laymen and women for portable altars, remission of sins, &c. This source is particularly valuable for Ireland, for which many of the key government records of this period are lost. Many of the names in the text were clearly a puzzle to the scribes in Rome, and spelling of British and Irish placenames and surnames is chaotic. Sixtus IV was consecrated and crowned 25 August 1471 (the day from which his pontificate is dated) and died at Rome 12 August 1484. The extracts were made by J. A. Twemlow from Vatican Regesta dxlvi to dclxxxi and Lateran Regesta dccxiii to dcccxxxviii, and published in 1955. Not all the Lateran registers survive from this pontificate, but were still in existence in the 18th century, when indexes were compiled giving rubricelle, or brief summaries of the papal bulls; nor, indeed, have all these indexes now survived, but Twemlow added an appendix listing all the rubricelle relating to the British Isles extant for the reign of Sixtus IV.

Irish Pensioners of William III's Huguenot Regiments: Galloway's Regiment (1702)
From an original return in Miscellaneous Bundle 17 of the Civil List books preserved in the Public Record Office, William A. Shaw prepared this abstract, published in 1902. The paper itself was entitled 'Abstract of the Examination of the French Pensioners now on the Civil List of the Establishment of Ireland'. The return was in book form with very wide pages, each folio or spread divided into eight columns. In his abstract the first number is the folio number; (a) is the name and station of the pensioner, either by first commission, second, or incorporated by warrant; (b) allowance on the establishment per diem; (c) where served and how long; (d) what substance and in what it consists; (e) what family they maintain; (f) able or not to serve, and why not; (g) when disbanded. In some cases some of the columns are blank in the original, and are ignored in this abstract. The least informative entries give just surname and rate of pension. Christian names are rarely given. The return is divided into two sections - Galloway's Regiment, and Old Pensioners. The latter include some women, presumably widows. The return was forwarded to the Lords Justices of Ireland as an appendix to a report, dated 29 June 1702, from Charles Dering, Auditor-General of Ireland. In all there were 590 pensioners, 398 being in Galloway's Regiment. Dering provided an analysis of the return, and annotated with an asterisk those 'absent out of the kingdom, dead or otherwised provided for, whose names are in the abstract blank'; with a dagger those 'that have been placed on the establishment by his late Majesty's warrants & have not served'; and with a double dagger those 'that have pensions above their stations markt upon the abstract.'

Officers at the Battle of Almanza (1707)
25 April 1707 at Almanza in southeast Spain a decisive battle was fought in the war of the Spanish succession; the French (under the Duke of Berwick) shattered an Anglo-Spanish army (under the Earl of Galway) advancing on Madrid. In January 1711 the House of Lords held an inquiry into the debacle, and among the papers produced was this 'List of the Names of the General Officers and other Commission Officers that were at the Battle of Almanza'. Arranged by regiment, it gives full names of captains, lieutenants, cornets, quartermasters, chaplains, surgeons and adjutants. In almost every case the lists are annotated as to whether each officer was actually present at the battle (most were), and whether killed in the conflict. The list was edited by Maurice F. Bond, clerk of the records to the House, and published in 1949.
