The house of regular canons of the order of St Augustine, founded at Embsay in 1120-21, was re-founded at Bolton within forty years. By the early 14th century the estate was largely complete, and it was at this point that the "lost" cartulary was created - roughly contemporary with the Compotus (see Record Series 154). Both documents recorded essential administrative detail, and document legal claims on property. The main evidence for the cartulary derives from two sources: the Coucher book, held at Chatsworth, and an incomplete transcript made by Roger Dodsworth in the 17th century.
