The material concerning Chantry history is voluminous and contained in many sources: the foundation deeds of particular chantries; administrative notes in episcopal registers; borough records; monastic and other cartularia; and the records of the English Chancery, particularly the Patent Rolls. These documents, some printed and many in manuscript, comprise the sources for Miss Wood-Legh's work. Perpetual chantries in Britain is a pioneer study in detail of the function of the chantry over a wide area of Britain. It will also give those whose curiosity is aroused by architectural survivals an impression of the part played by chantries in medieval life.
