A contemporary index divides the names of the individuals included according to their first letter but then lists the names beginning with each letter in order of appearance (f. 88-90). Two smaller pages of notes perhaps associated with the compilation of this manuscript, one concerning the heirs of Richard Woodvile, Earl of Rivers, including the Lords of Stanley, and the other on financial holdings and properties of various families, are tipped in (f. 92v, f. 93v).
