Henry III (1216-1272) - Elizabeth I (1558-1572).
- Letters patent, so called from being issued "open", with the Great Seal pendent, announced royal acts of the most diverse kinds, including grants and leases of land, appointments to offices, licenses and pardons, and presentations to ecclesiastical benefices. From 1516 the sort of royal grant which had hitherto been made by charter took the form of letters patent.
