This is a standard work on Americans claiming lineal descent from the Magna Charta Barons. The pedigrees referred to in the sub-title of the book pertain to the founders and members of the Order of Runnemede at the time the book was originally published (1898). The main body of the work, the pedigrees of the founders, is preceded by a history of the Magna Charta of 1215; by lists of the Magna Charta Barons; and by biographies of the Sureties (the twenty-five barons designated to enforce the Magna Charta).
