Note Faulhaber: Dejó sus MSS y 12.000 libras a la British Library. Se sigue comprando MSS utilizando los fondos de Egerton; así que no todos los “Egerton MSS” pertenecieron a Egerton. Sólo los nn. 1-68, que ingresaron en la BL en 1829, eran suyos. Los demás que tienen la signatura Egerton fueron comprado con sus fondos.

British Library: “In 1829, Francis Henry Egerton, 8th Earl of Bridgewater (b. 1756, d. 1829), bequeathed to the British Museum 67 manuscripts and £12,000 (the Bridgewater fund). This sum was augmented in 1838 by £3,000 (the Farnborough Fund) bequeathed by Egerton's cousin, Charles Long, Baron Farnborough (b. 1761, d. 1838). The income from these bequests is devoted to the purchase of manuscripts which, together with the original Egerton collection, make up the Egerton series of manuscripts.”
