Robert Flemmyng, Dean of Lincoln, presented the manuscript to Lincoln College in 1483.[4]

Someone collated it for Walton. It was used by John Mill (as Lin. 2). The manuscript was collated by Orlando T. Dobbin in 1854. C. R. Gregory saw it in 1883.[3]

Formerly it was labelled by 33a and 39p. In 1908 Gregory gave the number 326 to it.[1]

The manuscript is currently housed at the Lincoln College (Gr. 82) at Oxford.[2]
