The annals of King Charles [manuscript], compiled early 18th century?

Manuscript history of Charles I's reign from 1625-1641, consisting of a massive compilation of documents intended as a connected history of the reign. Written in ink in several scribal hands, mostly on recto only of each leaf leaving verso blank (in most cases) for the compiler's or editor's notes, corrections, additions, etc. in single editor's hand. The compiler references other historians, mostly in additional notes, including Laurence Echard (History of England 1707-18), Roger Coke (Detection of the Court, 1694), John Nalson (Impartial collection of the great affairs of state, 1682-3) and John Rushworth (Historical Collections, 1659-1701). Foreign writers are also scoured for their opinions, and the notes include reference to the histories of England by Larrey (1697-13) and Orleans (1693-4). If these are additions from newly-acquired sources it is very probable that the manuscript was being compiled in the early years of the 18th century.
