Towards the dating and analysis of english private charters of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. The Norman contribution to the administrative history of medieval England is a commonplace of academic inquiry into the period. Among the many novelties which followed the Conquest of , there is one in particular whose consequences have blurred our understanding of social, political and economic change for the nearly two and a half centuries separating the Conquest from the end of the reign of Edward I in That particularity is the custom of not including a date of issue in records recording property transfer. Such records, known as deeds or charters, were the most ubiquitous records of the time and it is estimated that for the twelfth and thirteenth centuries alone over a million have survived to this day as originals or cartulary copies. There was considerable diversity on the Continent at the time of the first millennium in the tendency to include, or exclude, a date reference when property conveyances were recorded in writing, depending upon where and when they were issued. There can be no doubt that the closer the tie between the issuer and the Roman tradition, the greater the likelihood that a charter would bear a date.

AN OVERVIEW OF THE PROCESS OF DATING UNDATED MEDIEVAL CHARTERS: LATEST RESULTS AND FUTURE DEVELOPMENTS Rodolfo Fiallos.
Deeds, or charters, dealing with property rights, provide a continuous documentation which can be used by historians to study the evolution of social, economic and political changes. This study is concerned with charters written in Latin dating from the tenth through early fourteenth centuries in England. Of these, at least one million were left undated, largely due to administrative changes introduced by William the Conqueror in Correctly dating such charters is of vital importance in the study of English medieval history.
This paper is concerned with computer-automated statistical methods for dating such document collections, with the goal of reducing the considerable efforts required to date them manually and of improving the accuracy of assigned dates. Proposed methods are based on such data as the variation over time of word and phrase usage, and on measures of distance between documents. Source Ann.

Mitchell and Ariella Elema , The dating of medieval charters. Mitchell and Ariella Elema. This paper describes a World Wide Web user-interface toolkit to date the undated English charter, as well as the underlying two computationally intensive dating methodologies — the Maximum Prevalence and a distance based method. The Maximum Prevalence method, the more accurate of the two, relies on analyzing changes in the pattern of word and phrase usage as derived from a carefully selected collection containing thousands of dated documents electronically transcribed and stored in the DEEDS corpus.
Over and above the dating of documents, the toolkit, which has features to visualize this pattern of change, is useful to historians, archivists and linguists alike. The distance-based method relies on computing the weighted sums of the dates of the documents in the DEEDS collection.

Many of the millions of medieval charters surviving in European archives and repositories were written without any reference to a date of issue. The proliferation of undated charters in England and Normandy indicates that the custom was especially peculiar to lands under Norman rule, but charters issued by major religious houses are often also undated. The DEEDS Project at the University of Toronto has developed a computerised methodology for dating charters, relying on analysis of vocabulary, syntax and formulae.
In this volume an international group of scholars concerned with the problem of charter chronology consider the potential of the computerised methodology compared to other more traditional methods of dating, such as identification of names, changing in wording and address, and handwriting.

Charters were documents recording grants, usually of land, but sometimes of other property or rights. They were thus the medieval equivalent of what we now call deeds. Records of royal charters – the most famous of which is, of course, Magna Carta – are mostly to be found among the chancery rolls at the Public Record Office. This section deals with charters issued by private individuals.
Private charters are potentially an excellent source of contemporary information about medieval genealogy. Family relationships are frequently mentioned. For example, transactions by other members of the grantor’s family may be recited or confirmed; if the grant is in favour of a religious house, provision may even be made for prayers for the souls of the grantor’s dead relatives, or for the grantor’s burial. In some cases the charter may record a marriage gift to a daughter, or provision for a younger son.
In later medieval times, land was often conveyed to feoffees in trust, and many of these were related to the grantor although the relationships are not usually specified. Wives or husbands! Alternatively, a member of the family with a perceived claim on the property in question might relinquish their rights in a separate quitclaim. Lists of witnesses, numerous compared with modern practice, are given. Charters were usually sealed, and where they survive the seals can also be useful, especially if they are heraldic.

An important aspect of any society is the way it keeps records of property and land transactions so that ownership can be properly established and disputes resolved. In medieval Britain, this process was largely carried out by religious or royal institutions which recorded transactions in documents, written in Latin, called charters. Today, more than a million charters survive either as originals or more often as ancient copies.
They provide a remarkable insight into the pressures at work in medieval politics, economics and society between the tenth and fourteenth centuries in England. For example, historians can use these documents to study the rise and fall of military and religious organisations. A good example is the Order of the Hospital of Saint John of Jerusalem, a religious and military organisation set up after the western conquest of Jerusalem in the 11th century the First Crusade.
Historians say the charters clearly show how the organisation became militarised in response to the call for a Second Crusade in , triggered by Muslim forces recapturing various towns in the region. Clearly, these documents have huge historical value but there is a problem: most charters are not dated, particularly during the period of Norman rule between and The problem for historians is to find some way of time-ordering these documents.
But it is no easy task. Today, Gelila Tilahun and colleagues at the University of Toronto discuss this challenge and outline their new statistical computer techniques that they use to tackle the problem. Their approach is to use a subset of some 10, charters that are dated and to look for changes in language over time that could be used to date other documents.

Skip to: content. Charters of this period were often not dated. A charter is considered dated if there is a recognizable date within the document. The date may be a reference to anno domini [the year of the Lord], a royal, episcopal or pontifical regnal year, a feast day, or an historical event. There may be one, or more than one, of any of the different types of date reference.
The reference s may be incomplete but the the date can still be determined.
