Research:I do not find any notice of this MS. in Riley's edition. I suspect the sixteenth century
portions were supplied by Parker from the College of Arms MS. Arundel VII, which he certainly used for his edition printed in
Sir F. Madden in the Preface to Matthew Paris, Historia Anglorum I lxvi, says definitely that this MS. was used by Parker
for his edition and that the fact escaped Mr Riley's notice. He also records that this MS. is in the
same hand as the Colbert copy (formerly Sir W.
Cecil's) of Matthew Paris, now Bibl. Nationale Lat.
6048B. Parker had noted this fact in the Paris MS.
