The later rolls, from 1273-4, contain treaties, truces, appointments and powers of ambassadors, orders, summons to military service, letters of safe-conduct and protection, and grants of offices and lands relating to Gascony under English rule. Until early in the reign of Edward II, there are also entries relating to Ponthieu and Montreuil.
