The answer to your query is to be found in Appendix 4 of:
Brown, Raymond E. The Epistles of John. Anchor Bible vol. 30. New York:
Doubleday, 1982.

He lists the eight sources of the Johannine Comma, numbered " according to
the Gregory enumeration " -- sixth in the list is:
221vl a variant reading added to a 10th-century manuscript in the Bodleian
Library at Oxford.

Just as a matter of local pride <g>, first in the list is this:

" 61: The Codex Montfortianus ( Britannicus ) an early sixteenth century
MS. at Trinity College Dublin. This codex was copied from an earlier
Lincoln (Oxford ) Cddex ( 326) that did not have the Comma. Insertions
elsewhere in Montfortian have been retroverted from the Latin "
