Charles Beauclerk, natural son of King Charles I and his mistress Nell Gwynne was given the title of Duke of St. Albans in 1684. With the title came land, and the wild game living on it. This slip of paper grants permission for Christopher Roleston to hunt in the Dukeï¿½s parks. This item was included in the Scrawl and Order exhibit, http://lib.msstate.edu/exhibits/past/.
