Knights Templar

Finding a digital platform — problems

My transcription of the accounts of the Templars’ estates in Herefordshire is now on Wattpad . However, the final part of the accounts was initially blocked  by Wattpad on the basis it’s copyright material. According to the National Archives website, it isn’t restricted material (see http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/information-management/our-services/crown-copyright.htm ). The National Archives website states: ”You may quote or transcribe from Crown copyright documents freely and without formal permission. However you must give the document reference number and acknowledge The National Archives as custodian of the document” — which I have done.

Wattpad have now resolved the problem, but as a back-up I’ve put my transcriptions of the custodians’ accounts for the Templars’ estates in Herefordshire on to Academia.edu, and have attached the document which offended Wattpad here: Herefordshire accounts in TNA E358_19.
