This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 

publisher to a library and finally to you.

sometime lord of Arundel, and of John his son and heir and their prede- 
cessors, lords of Arundel, used by his bailiffs to receive amercements of his 
men of Eoclesden, co. Sussex, wherein they were amerced for any cause in 
the hundred of Paling, belonging to the honor of Arundel, for which reason 
the king lately commanded Bobert Aguillon, keeper of that honor, to desist 
from a distraint he was making upon the said men for such amercements, 
and to permit the abbot to levy them, as he was accustomed to do, the said

enjoy, possession of the archdeaconrj of Dublin. Upon the death of 
Master William de Northfeld, sometime archdeacon, when the arch* 
deaconrj was in the king's gift bj reason of the voidance of the arch- 
bishopric of Dublin, the king gave it to the said William, with the usual 
mandate to the dean and chapter of St Patrick's, Dublin, to assign him a 
stall in the choir and a place in the chapter. But the prior and convent of 
Holy Trinity, Dublin, asserted tliat this mandate was to their prejudice, as 
the archdeacons of Dublin were accustomed during voidances of the arch- 
bishopric to be presented to them and to receive at their hands the 
jurisdiction of the spirituality of the city and diocese of Dublin, which 
archdeacons are accustomed to exercise during such voidance, and requested 
that the said William should be presented to them accordingly. Hereupon 
the king commanded both parties to his presence with all acts and muni- 
ments touching the matter, and gave them Master Thomas Bek and Bobert 
de Scardeburg, king's clerks, as auditors, before whom, after several days' 
altercation on the question, it was at length asked on behalf of the prior 
and convent whether they had ever had any presentation made to them with 
respect to the said archdeaconry by the kings of England in times past, or 
anything else whereby they could prove their possession, and they answered 
that they had none. And being asked whether they thought it right for 
the king to revoke, upon their bare assertion, the mandate he had made to 
the dean and chapter, they replied that they were willing, for the good of 
the peace and the king's reverence, to hold the said William for their 
archdeacon.

Westminster, between Robert, archbishop of Canterbury, and Richard le Waleys, knight, 

as follows : — Sussex. The assise comes to know whether the archbishop, 

Adam de Wendelesworth, Andrew de JarpenviU, John de Arderne and 

Master Roger de Dertford disseised the said Richard of Lis free tenement

in Terriog, to wit, of two parts of the manor of Terring, except 28 acres 

of land. The archbishop comes not, hut Bichard de Pevenese, his bailiff, 

comes, and Adam, Andrew, John and Boger come. The archbishop, by 

his bailiffs, sajs that the assise should not proceed because he entered with 

the will of Bichard, who gave him the keys of the manor : that Richard 

holds the said manor at his will by the service of 18/. yearly in money or 

its value at the option of the archbishop, who shall come there once a year 

if he wishes and stay until he should consume food and other necessaries to 

that amount, or at the four terms, and consume a fourth part, on condition 

of giving 40 days' notice. In allowance of the said 18/. he shall find for 

the archbishop a quarter of wheat for 18c/., a quarter of oats for 8c/.9 

4 gallons of best ale for Ic/., and if it be not the best let the cask be 

smashed, the ale spilt, and \d, or \d, put upon the cask, a fat ox 

carcase for 16c/., a male pig over a year old and of reasonable size for 

8c/. a fat mutton carcase for 4c/. two fat geese for Ic/. four fat hens for Ic/. 

a hundred of eggs for Id. and another hundred for nothing, dishes, plates, 

salt-cellars, cups, skewers {brock*), firewood (butch*) , coal (carbon'), salt, 

'pychers' (afterwards called vasa terrea), daily at noon, hay for nothing, 

and litter likewise for nothing. He shall keep the men of the manor 

according to their tenures, and as freely without vexation and exaction as 

the archbishop keeps his men of his other manors, under pain of losing the 

manor, and if he fails in any point or contravenes these (Auditions, the 

archbishop may enter the manor and keep it at will. And because Bichard, 

when the archbishop came to the manor to take the service in kind as above, 

expended 6/. 17«. 5}</. only and defaulted as to the residue of service, 

and also vexes the men of the manor and exacts from them other customs 

and services than he ought or than the archbisb(»p exacts from his men in 

other of his manors, the archbishop took the manor into his hands, as was 

lawful for him to do. For he says that Godfrey, grandfather of Richard, 

whose heir the latter is, held the manor of St. Edmund, sometime archbishop 

of Canterbury, predecessor of himself, by the said services, and St. Edmund 

took the manor from Godfrey for the like reasons and kept it until he 

returned it to Gk)dfrey, of his mere grace, under a form contained in 

a writing as follows :— 

' Godfrey le Waleys to all greeting : — Be it known that whereas by 
reason of many defaults in my farm due from the manor of Terring to my 
lord the archbishop of Canterbury according to the ancient and approved 
custom of the archbishopric, I had been deprived of the said manor by my 
lord Edmund, archbishop of Canterbury, and of my own free will, until I 
can have his grace, I had resigned the said manor with the keys of the 
houses into the hands of Master Richard de Wyke, his chancellor, and the 
archbishop had been in full seisin of the manor as of right, the fealties of 
the men of the manor having been taken by him ; at my instant prayer, 
the archbishop has at last of his mere grac6 delivered seisin of the said 
.manor to me in the following form, to wit, that the men of the manor shall 
hold ac(K>rding to their tenures as freely and without exaction as the 
archbishop holds his men of his other manors, under pain of losing the said 
manor of Terring if convicted at any time, and I have bound myself and my 
heirs to pay 80 pounds of silver quarterly in the four following years for 
the said defaults, and 10/. on failing to pay any quarter ; and the arc^hbishop 
has given 80/. to my four daughters to many them, and the portions of 
each will be placed in the house of St. Pancras, Lewes, until with the consent 
of their friends they are provided for in marriage. The default of the said 
farm according to the custom of the archbishopric I promise to make good 
under all the said bonds and penalty, renounchig every privilege and remedy 
of any law. As to the holding of the hundred (de Lage hundredo) by the 
archbishop*s bailiffs at Terring, it \b agreed that we will stand by the

ordinance and judgment of Sirs WilUam de Ralegh and William de Eboraco. 
In witness hereof I have set my seal to this writing in the full court of 
Chancery. Dated at Canterbury, V Ides of June, in the feurth year of the 
pontificate of the said Edmund.' 

The archbishop also says that after the death of the said G-odfrey the 
said St. Edmund forthwith entered the said manor as his right because he 
had granted it to Godfrey only, not to his heirs. But overcome by the 
insistence of Godfrey, the son and heir of the said Godfrey and the father 
of the above Richard, and his friends, the said St. Edmund gave him seisin 
of the manor without mentioning heirs, and of his special grace, on con- 
dition that he should render the farm in the aforesaid way, and not vex or 
oppress the men of the manor, but treat them in the same way as the 
archbishop did in his manors, and this appears by a letter of Godfrey to the 
following effect :— 

^ That whereas his father, by reason of the above default of the farm, 
resigned the manor as Bpecified in the above charter, the archbishop has 
deli\ered the manor to him on condition that he fully pay the farm, under 
pain of losing it, and that he treat the men according to their tenures as freely 
as the archbishop for the time being treats his. Witnesses: Reginald, 
abbot of Begham ; Masters Richard de Wikes and Nicholas de Burford ; 
Roger de Leyburn and Henry de WyntreshuU, knights ; WiiHam de Burne 
and Peter de Carsing, clerks ; Henry Level, and others.' 

Wherefore the present archbishop says that he took the manor into his 
hand as his right by the form of the grant to the ancestor of the said 
Richard, as his predecessors had often done for default of service and vexa- 
tion of the men, and demands judgment whether the assise should proceed. 
. Richard says that he gave the archbishop no keys, but that he received 
him into the manor as a guest. He acknowledges that he holds the manor 
for 18/. a year, and that Godfrey, his father, held it of Boniface, predecessor 
of the said Robert, and died seised thereof as in fee : but, by reason of the 
minority of Richard, Boniface took the manor into his hands in the name 
of a custody, and assigned to Joan wife of Godfrey, his mother, one third 
part in dower, and kept the custody of two -thirds until his full age, and after- 
wards surrendered to him those two parts as his right and inheritance and 
took his homage, and after the death of Boniface the present archbishop took 
his homage : and so he was in seisin thereof until the latter disseised him, 
and as to this he puts himself upon the assise. 

Richard, being asked whether his grandfather and father made the above 
^ ritings, says yes ; but he says the writings ought not to go against him, because 
although they were disseised as he has been, they might have remitted the 
injury done to them, or, again, his grandfather and father do not bind their 
heirs by the said services, and he asks judgment whether the said writings 
ought to oust him from that assise. 

The archbishop by his bailiff asks judgment, with respect to Richard's 
claim of two parts by hereditary right, whether he can be in a better case 
than his father and grandfather if they were alive. 

The bailiff, being asked whether the archbishop took Richard's homage, 
says that the latter holds other tenements for which he took his homage, 
and if he took homage for that tenement, he did so under the form contained 
in the above writings. 

A day was given to them to hear judgment at Estgrenested, to wit, 
Saturday before St. Margaret the Virgin. 

Afterwards on that day, because all the jury were of the liberty of the 
archbishopric, the above-mentioned Joan refused to proceed, and asked that 
it sliould be of others than of the said liberty. But ai» there were no other 
recognitors present, a day was given a fortnight nfter Michaelmas, and in 
the meantime the king's council was to bo consulted.

Afterwards, a month after Michaelmas 4 Edward I. the parties came 
before the king at Westminster, and agreed that the king should cause 
inquisition to be made hj knights and others of the vicinage of Terring, 
impartial to either side, as to what service was imposed upon Richard's 
ancestors when they first entered or held the manor, and in the taking of 
the inquisition the above mentioned writings were to be exhibited, and in 
the meantime the manor was to be surrendered into the king's hands. 

Afterwards, on Friday after the octave of Martinmas, the said jury 
remained to be taken on Monday, St. Andrew's day, at Biackinglegh, co. 
Surrey, throoeh defect of knights, and because of the free tenants who 
came, nearly aufl were open to challenge by one party or the other. The 
sheriffs of Surrey and Kent were commanded to distrain jurors so that the 
jury should not remain again. 

Afterwards on that day, because all the knights and free tenants of Sussex 
were challenged on one side or the other, and Richard claimed that jury 
ought not to be taken by any jurors of Kent or Surrey, the jury was 
respited to Hilary three weeks at Westminster, and in the meantime the 
king to be consulted. On that day the parties appeared and a jury selected 
with the consent of both parties, to wit, Denid de Croft, Henry de Lyons, 
Robert de Sancto Claro, Simon de Sangelton, Thomas de Offinton, William 
de Henton, Aunfrey de Qatewik, William de la Rede, Adam le Justur, 
Robert Troytemenen, William de la Legh, and John de Wyntreshull, who 
say that the manor of Terring was once the right and member of Christ- 
church, Canterbury, and a predecessor of the present archbishop handed it 
over to an ancestor of Richard to hold by the service of 18/. a year, or its 
value in provisions, in the form above stated by the archbishop. And they 
say that Richard began to perform the said service in provisions, that the men 
ought to be treated as the archbishop treated his men in his other manors, 
that Richard treated them otherwise in exacting customs not due from them, 
to wit, that whereas they ought not to thresh corn except again£t the coming 
of the archbishop, he compelled them to thresh corn every year or pay 
money for it. 

Hereupon Richard acknowledged the manor to be the right of the said 
church, and all the claims of the archbishop, and that he forfeited the manor 
and accordingly quitclaimed it to the archbishop, submitting himself entirely 
to the archbishop's grace. Therefore judgment was given that the archr 
bishop should have seisin. 

Afterwards Richard quit-claimed to the archbishop any right he might 
have of chasing in the woods, chaoes and w£^rens of the archbishop in Suth 
Mailing and Maggefeld.

Jan. 4. Inspeximus of the record and process of a plea before the justices at 

London. Westminster between the abbot of St Mary's, York, and Roger, bishop of 
Norwich, touching the advowson of the church of Banham. The bishop 
was summoned to answer the abbot why he refused to admit a fit parson at 
the presentation of the abbot, the latter having deraigned the advowson of 
the said church in the king's court before John de Lovetoft at Norwich 
against John le Mareschal, and recovered the same against him by a jury 
on 2 January, 4 Edward I. before the said John de Lovetoft at Norwich. 
On Friday after the Circumcision of that year the abbot brought to the bishop 
in his manor of Suthelmham his writ of judgment for the bishop to admit a 
parson at the abbot's presentation, and presented to him on the same day a 
clerk, to wit, Philip de Wilegheby, but the bishop refused. The bishop 
answers that he refused because he had already, by authority of the council, 
after the lapse of half a year, to wit, on the eve of St. Thomas the Apostle, 
a half year after the death of Reiner de Florencia, presented one of his own 
clerks, as he well might. And this is plain, because he says that the church 
of Wilgheby, whereof the abbot is patron, fell void after the death of Reiner, 
who was admitted thereto at the presentation of the abbot, and his 
successor admitted on the abbot's presentation whereby it is plain that the 
church of Banham also fell void. The .bishop's ^ittomey, being asked 
on what day the abbot presented to the bishop for admission to the 
church of Banham Peter the monk, his clerk, who was presented 
before Philip de Wilgheby, says it was the 5 Kal. April, 3 Edward I, 
The abbot acknowledges this, and says that Reiner was then alive, but 
because he was informed that Reiner had taken a wife, he presented Peter 
as though the church were void of right., and for the same reason he 
presented Nicholas de Capella, the bishop's clerk, to the church of 
Wilgheby. But the bishop says that on the said 5 Kal. April Reiner was 
dead, and offers that this should be proved by the country. The abbot says 
there should be no verification by the country because Reiner died beyond 
seas, and this he is ready to prove by sufficient witnesses of the death, and 
he produces fourteen persons who swear that Reiner was alive on that day. 
And because the bishop has no proof to the contrary, and in any case the
