I believe "Lord Ottobon" is Cardinal Ottobon; the National Archives contain a manuscript of "Publication by Cardinal Ottobon of a bull of Pope Alexander of privileges of the Cluniac order.", dating to 1266, and [1] mentions " the legatine constitutions of ... Ottobon in 1268". Shimgray 03:05, 16 Jan 2005 (UTC)

I suspect, in fact, it was Pope Adrian V... "In 1264, he was sent to England to mediate between King Henry III and his barons." Being created a cardinal by Innocent IV would mesh nicely with that. Shimgray 03:27, 16 Jan 2005 (UTC)
[2] also refers to "cardinal legate Ottobon". Shimgray 03:31, 16 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Failed GA[edit]

This article is little more than a stub. It needs significant expansion and wikifying. Footnoting and references are not in proper format, red links should be cleaned up, more detail on statutes is needed. Rlevse 21:13, 29 July 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Statute Law Link[edit]

There is now an online UK Government statute database: The Statute of Marlborough

That is c.23, aka the Waste Act. The remaining chapters that remain in force, c.1, 4 and 15, aka the Distress Act, are here. -- ALoan (Talk) 19:29, 10 January 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
