Record of 3 grants of land in Suffolk by Roger Bigod, Earl of Norfolk, to the sons of magister William de Risinges (Walter, Simon, Eustace, and Peter), for which Bigod received a riding horse, a windmill with a rood of land (possibly the earliest mention of a windmill in Suffolk), and an annual fee. Written in 17 long lines, in a chancery script, with the central part of a wax seal still remaining on a parchment tag. The remnant of the seal shows part of an equestrian figure on one side and a heraldic lion on the other.
