Magna Charta Sureties, 1215: The Barons Named In The Magna Charta, 1215 And Some Of Their Descendants Who Settled In America During The Early Colonial Years (5th Ed.)
The Magna Charta (or Carta) is the cornerstone of Anglo-Saxon law, since it is the earliest agree. between sovereign and subject on the rights of both parties -- what each can do, and the limitation of powers. The Charter set up watchdogs for both sides: 25 men representing the barons, and the friends of the king, who were named in the Charter. The most useful book about the Charter is a 19th-cent. work by Richard Thomson, An Historical Essay on the Magna Carta of King John, pub. in London in 1828. It includes extensive bio. notes on the Sureties, and on those individuals mentioned in the Charter, or connected with it. There are two tables that supply lineage info., one on the Sureties, the other on those persons who appear as friends of the king.
