    The item is a page of notes concerning a watch which belonged to Mary, Queen of Scots. It describes the watch in detail. It was thought to have been given to her by her husband Francis I of France. At the bottom of the page there is a sketch of a watch said to have belonged to Richard the Abbot of Glastonbury.
