REPORT OF ANNUAL MEETING, NOVEMBER HTH, 1920. 



THE Forty-second Annual Meeting of the William Salt Archaeo- 
logical Society was held in the Lecture Hall of the Free Library, 
Stafford, on November llth, 1920. 

Lord DARTMOUTH was in the Chair. 

Mr. S. A. H. BURNE (Hon. Financial Secretary) reported that 
14 new Members had been elected during the past year, while the 
Society had lost 7 members by death and 4 by resignation. 
The total membership is now 213. The Council, however, cannot 
look upon the Membership list as at all satisfactory, inasmuch as 
the Society has actually fewer Members than it had at the end of 
its first year's existence. It continues to secure steady support 
from the Public Libraries of England, America, and the Colonies, 
but the Council feels that the future output of the Society will be 
seriously affected unless the private Membership list can be 
substantially increased. 

The Balance Sheet for the year ending September 30th, 1920, 
shows a credit balance of 202 85. Id. There are outstanding sub- 
scriptions due, amounting to a further 63. Against this, Messrs. 
Harrison's bill for printing the 1919 volume will considerably 
exceed the balance in hand. At the Annual Meeting held in 



November, 1919, Colonel J. C. Wedgwood, M.P., resigned the 
office of Hon. Secretary, which he had held since 1909. The Council 
wish to express their sense of the very valuable services rendered 
by him to the Society. 

Messrs. G. P. MANDER and S. A. H. BURNE were elected to act 
jointly in his place. 

Lord DARTMOUTH proposed a vote of thanks to the Hon. Auditor, 
which was carried unanimously. 

Mr. MANDER then read the Report of the Editorial Committee : 
The Committee regret having again to offer their apologies to 
Members for delay in the publication of the Volumes. They 
propose to print for 1921 part of a calendar of the ancient deeds 
in the William Salt Library, which is being prepared by Miss 
Cornford and Miss Miller. These documents, amounting to some 
three thousand, have hitherto been little known. The Hearth 
Tax of 1665, of which the Hundreds of Pirehill, Seisdon, and part 
of Offlow have already been transcribed, also await publication. 

Lord DARTMOUTH, in introducing Mr. R. A. Roberts, of the 
P.R.O., explained a scheme devised by the Historical MSS. Com- 
missioners for obtaining particulars of private collections of manu- 
scripts throughout the country, and stated that the Society had 
undertaken to carry it out, as far as possible, in Staffordshire. 

Mr. ROBERTS then read an interesting paper on the subject of 
historical manuscripts, which has been fully reported in the local 
press. 

The DEAN OF LICHFIELD followed with a paper emphasizing the 
importance of printing local records, in the course of which he made 
many valuable suggestions for the future work of the Society. 

The Meeting concluded with a hearty vote of thanks to both 
speakers.

CALENDAR OF THE MANUSCRIPTS IN THE 
WILLIAM SALT LIBRARY, STAFFORD. 



BY 



M. E. CORNFORD AND E. B. MILLER. 



INTRODUCTION. 

THERE are in the William Salt Library some hundreds of 
ancient deeds, dating from the tenth century, which contain 
much information of value to students of history. They give 
the early history of manorial and other property ; the names 
of clergy, officials, and the principal inhabitants of towns and 
villages ; particulars as to roads, lanes, bridges, mills, woods, 
watercourses, dykes, hedges and other boundaries ; field- 
names ; and details as to curious tenures and legal processes ; 
while they throw much light on the social and industrial life 
of England, and especially of Staffordshire, in the Middle 
Ages. 

It is thought that a Calendar giving a brief abstract of 
each deed, with the names of the parties and of the witnesses, 
will be more useful than a mere catalogue. The Society has 
undertaken to publish a section of this Calendar year by year 
until it is complete, when a few separate copies of the whole 
will be available for use in the Library and for sale. The 
first five or six sections will deal with MSS. of dates prior to 
1500. 

Many of these earlier deeds are undated. An attempt has 
been made to supply approximate dates by comparing names 
of witnesses, etc. In a fair proportion of cases the original 
seals are attached to the parchments ; some of them are well 
worthy of examination. 

As the collection receives frequent additions, it is impossible 
to arrange the deeds chronologically or topographically. The 



XX INTRODUCTION. 

method adopted corresponds to that of the Catalogue of Ancient 
Deeds issued by the Public Record Office, and is designed to 
facilitate reference to the original parchments in the Library. 
When the Calendar is complete it will be furnished with a full 
index of names and places, so that there will be no difficulty 
in finding any particular deed. 

In bringing out Part I, we beg to acknowledge most grate- 
fully much valuable help received from Mr. T. F. T. Plucknett.

THE STAFFORDSHIRE HEARTH TAX. 

The Hearth Tax or chimney-money was a payment to the king 
of 2s. on every hearth " in all houses paying to church and 
poor," first levied in 1662. It was repealed in 1689, although 
it was producing 170,000 a year, on account of its unpopularity, 
the tax being especially obnoxious because of its inquisitorial 
character. 

The following Hearth Tax Rolls relating to Staffordshire 
are to be found in the Public Record Office : 

179 Hearth money. Arrears due upon fire hearths in the City of 
324 Lichfield. Also the names of inhabitants too poor to be 
assessed. 15 Charles II. 1663.

REVIEWS. 

THE LIBERATE ROLLS OF THE CHANCERY. Vol. I. 
1226-1240. 

The series of Liberate Rolls of the Chancery extends from 
2 John to 14 Henry VI, and includes 148 rolls. The first 
three, however, are not of the same nature as the others, 
but are really the beginning of the series now known as the 
Close Rolls. The Liberate Rolls proper begin n Henry III. 
From that point onwards the series was continued regularly, 
one roll to each year, until 39 Edward III, after which the 
rolls included more than one year each. 

When the Liberate Rolls were instituted three classes of 
writs employed in ordering or warranting expenditure, which 
had hitherto been entered on the Close Rolls, were transferred 
to them. Of these the Liberate writ was a warrant from the 
King or the Justiciar to the Treasurer and Chamberlains 
of the Exchequer to pay money out of the Treasury to certain 
persons named. If a sheriff or other accountant were to be 
repaid sums spent by him on the King's account, a writ of 
C amputate was issued by the King to the Barons of the 
Exchequer; or if he were to be excused payment of a sum 
with which he was chargeable, a writ of Perdono was addressed 
to the same persons. 

As these writs were the King's usual means of spending 
money, and as the objects of his expenditure ranged from 
gifts intended for foreign potentates and the expenses of 
military expeditions down to the purchase of food and kitchen 
utensils for the royal household, it will be readily realized 
that these rolls contain an immense amount of material for 
students of history, whether political, social, or economic. 

The period covered includes the greater part of the episcopate 
of Alexander de Stavenby, Bishop of Coventry and Lichfield. 



REVIEWS. 175 

This prelate held a high position in the councils of the realm, 
and was frequently employed by the King as an envoy to 
Rome and " the parts beyond sea." On one occasion he 
borrowed 400 marks from some merchants of Siena for his 
expenses at the Roman court, which was duly repaid from the 
Treasury ; and in the same year the King granted 100 as a 
gift to the Bishop " going as the King's envoy." There are 
numerous entries of the payment to him of a sum of 10 a 
year, usually paid in two portions, " which he receives at the 
Exchequer for Rugeley and Cannock in the same way as 
William, late Bishop of Coventry, received this sum." 

Bishop Stavenby introduced the Friars Minors into the 
diocese, and built for them the Friary at Lichfield. After 
his death the King, in March 1239, ordered the guardians 
of the vacant bishopric to pay to the Friars a sum of 10 marks, 
and in August a further sum of loos, as a gift. 

Henry III was as lavish in his gifts to the Church as in 
his general expenditure ; he seems to have made a practice 
of presenting bishops and archbishops with various vestments 
and ornaments on the occasion of their consecration. In 1230 
a Liberate writ was issued to William de Haverhulle and 
William the King's tailor for 55 35. 6d. to pay for two chasubles, 
a cope, two tunics, two dalmatics, two albs, two mitres, two 
pairs of sandals and other pontificalia necessary for the conse- 
cration of Luke, Archbishop-elect of Dublin, who subsequently 
became Dean of the Collegiate Church of Penkridge. When 
Hugh de Pateshull succeeded Bishop Stavenby at Lichfield 
the King bestowed upon him a mitre costing the large sum 
of 19 195. gd. 

An order for eight quarters of wheat to be bought and de- 
livered for the use of " St. John's Hospital, Lichfield," in 
1240 shows that that foundation was even at that early date 
called a hospital, not a friary or monastery as Shaw implies. 

Leaving ecclesiastical for secular matters, we find a good 
many entries relating to Cannock Forest, of which a certain 
Hugh de Loges was at that time forester. It was the King's 
custom to send yeomen with harthounds and buckhounds

(canibus cerviriciis et damericiis) to hunt at Cannock in order 
to provide meat for the royal table ; and directions are given 
to the forester as to the disposal of the venison, which was 
either sent at once to the King, or salted and kept until further 
orders were received. Another entry is concerned with 
timber from the King's wood of Ashwood in the forest of Kinver. 

Orders are given for the repair of the King's " stews " or 
fishponds at Stafford and at Newcastle-under-Lyme ; of 
these the former were long known as " the King's Pools," 
and are so marked on a plan of Stafford dated c. 1600. They 
lay between the north wall of the town and Coton Hill. 

Many more quotations might be made, but enough has been 
said to show the interest and value of the Calendar alike to 
historians and archaeologists. The abstracts of the writs 
are admirably clear and full, and students will appreciate 
the frequent quotations from the original Latin and the excellent 
indices.

CALENDAR OF PATENT ROLLS, EDWARD III, 1374-1377. 

The printed calendar of the Patent Rolls between the 
years 1216 and 1509 is completed by the issue of this volume, 
which has been prepared by Mr. M. C. B. Dawes, B.A. A 
very full abstract in English of practically every document 
recorded in these rolls is now easily available and is invaluable 
to students, as these rolls illustrate nearly every subject 
connected with national and local history and government. 

All the fifty-four volumes of this issue can be consulted 
without charge at the William Salt Library, Stafford. Each 
is furnished with an admirable index, which not only enables 
readers to ascertain at a glance if there is anything in the 
volume about the person or place in which they are interested, 
but also is of great assistance in identifying persons and places 
in other documents that are difficult to recognise in their 
mediaeval forms. 

Among the Staffordshire documents given in the present 
volume should be noted the confirmation of a hitherto un- 






REVIEWS. 177 

printed charter of Henry II, granting further lands in the 
royal forest of Cannock, at Lindhurst (within the royal manor 
of Alrewas) and at Pipe to the nuns of St. Mary " de Fager- 
wella " (Fairwell), dated from Radmore, the royal hunting 
box near Gentleshaw, and the confirmation of a deed of 1263, 
in which Robert de Ferrars, earl of Derby, granted various 
rights and privileges to persons holding burgages within his 
free borough of Agardsley in Newborough. 

The Staffordshire commissions of the peace in 1375 and 
1377 have been already printed in the Salt volume for 1912, 
pp. 310 and 311. The " Adomar " de Lichfield mentioned 
on p. 3? 'i is, of course, identical with Aylmer (Taverner) de 
Lichfield and he was originally appointed on 15 Dec. 1376. 
Most of these Staffordshire justices occur in the present volume 
and, as an illustration of the kind of information given about 
them, it may be mentioned that Ralph Basset of Drayton 
sold to the king for 12,000 franks of gold a Genoa prisoner, 
taken in the last voyage made by the king's son, John, King 
of Castile and Duke of Lancaster ; that Basset had a licence 
to impark 300 acres in Olney, co. Bucks ; that he occurs 
as a custodian for the king of the lands late of John de Moubray 
in Axholme, co. Lines, and that he was licensed to found a 
house of friars hermits of the Augustinian order at Ather- 
stone. 

Other typical entries include a pardon to Thos. Greneway 
of co. Stafford for the death of Rich. Bykur of Stone, taillour ; 
a commission to enquire into the death of Henry atte Walle 
at Fradswell and into an outrage on the wife of John Mareschall 
.at Aston by Stone ; an exemption for life of Wm. Collesone of 
Walsall from serving as a juror, mayor, etc., against his will ; 
a grant to Wm. Purcell of the 10 6s. 8d. which the abbey 
of Halesowen is bound to render to the king at fee farm for 
the manor of Rowley Regis ; a pardon to Wm. de Burley, 
chaplain, outlawed in Staffordshire at the suit of the bishop ; 
the appointment of John Ray of Coventry as collector of the 
subsidy on cloths for sale in the county of Stafford, etc. ; 
and an entail of property by Wm. de Bentley on his brothers

Nicholas de Ruggeley and John Ins successively, failing issue 
of himself. 

There is a good deal of local ecclesiastical information 
given in this volume. Several presentations to prebends, 
etc., in the royal free chapels of Penkridge, Stafford, Tam- 
worth, Tettenhall and Wolverhampton are recorded ; perhaps 
the most noteworthy being that of Adam de Hertyngdon 
to the deanery of Stafford. During these three years he 
was appointed by the king as clerk of the works in the manors 
of Clarendon, co. Wilts, King's Langley, co. Herts, Worldham 
and Wheatley, co. Southampton, and Marish, co. Bucks, 
as well as at Porchester castle. He also occurs as holding 
prebends at S. Paul's, London, at Salisbury, and at 
Windsor. 

There are several ratifications of the estates of Lichfield 
prebendaries and one grant by the King of a prebend there, 
that of Tarvin to John de " Gurmonchestre " (Godmanchester). 
The king also made many presentations to livings belonging 
to alien priories, such as Tutbury, which were at this time 
in his gift on account of the war with France, but only two 
Staffordshire clerics seem to have obtained these livings, 
viz., Henry Bradley, rector of Hampstall Ridware, who was 
moved to Marston, and Ralph de Sutton, vicar of Harbourne, 
who went to Droitwich. 

Other documents that illustrate the local ecclesiastical 
history of these times include the royal assent to the election 
of the vicar of Seighford, a Ronton monk, as abbot of Rocester 
abbey ; an order to the escheators of the counties of Stafford, 
Northampton and Derby to deliver the temporalities of the 
abbey within their respective bailiwicks to him ; and an 
order to two Sheriffs and other commissioners to arrest a 
Rocester canon, who had left the abbey without leave and was 
a vagabond in secular attire, and to deliver him, when caught, 
for chastisement to the abbot according to the rules of the 
order.

CALENDAR OF PAPAL LETTERS, 1447-1455. 

This abstract of papal documents has been prepared by 
Mr. J. A. Twemlow, B.A., and deals with the papacy of 
Nicholas V, elected 6 March 1447, died 24 March 1455. It is 
of course invaluable for the ecclesiastical history of this period 
and it is furnished with admirable indices. 

Among the numerous Staffordshire entries in this volume 
attention may be directed to the following items. 

On 26 April 1447 the Pope provided Wm. Bothe, a canon 
of London, with the, bishopric of Coventry and Lichfield, 
vacant by the death of Wm. Heyworth, the bishop from 
1419 to 1447. In June 1448 Bothe found that many of the 
" palaces, castles, manors, lodgings, houses and buildings " 
belonging to the see had fallen into ruins and decreed that 
it would be sufficient for the habitation of the bishop and 
" for keeping up hospitality " to keep in repair the palaces 
at Coventry and Lichfield, the castle and Manor of Eccheshall, 
the manors of Beaudesert and Heywood and the lodging 
in the Strand, London, and that the remainder might be 
demolished in consideration of the great burden to the episcopal 
" mensa " that their repair entailed. Sanction to this decree 
was obtained from the Archbishop of Canterbury in July 
1448, and from the Pope in August 1450. 

In Jan. 1450 Bothe obtained an indult to visit his diocese 
by deputy, alleging that it was less burdensome to the diocese 
to be visited by his officials rather than by the bishop in 
person, and also that he was much hindered by royal and 
private business. In July 1450 the Pope appointed him 
and the prior of Kenilworth to hear and decide an appeal 
to the apostolic see, made by the prior of Stone, against a 
decision of the Archbishop of Canterbury with regard to the 
internal government of the Stone monastery. 

On 21 July 1452 Bothe was translated by the Pope to the 
Archbishopric of York and on the 30 August 1452 Nicholas 
Close, Bishop of Carlisle, was similarly translated to the see

of Coventry and Lichfield. Nicholas received a dispensation 
from personal attendance at the Roman Court. He had 
only been Bishop of Carlisle for two years, having previously 
been domestic chaplain to the king, Archdeacon of Carlisle, 
etc., when he had received various indults, dispensations, 
etc., mentioned in this and the preceding calendars. 

On the 7 Feb. 1453 Reginald Boulers was translated by 
the Pope to the see of Coventry and Lichfield (on the death of 
Nicholas) from Hereford, to which see he had been appointed 
on 18 Sept. 1450, when abbot of the Benedictine monastery 
of S. Peter, Gloucester. 

Vincent dementis, S.T.M., was the chancellor of Lichfield 
at this period. In Jan. 1450 he was appointed collector of the 
papal camera in England. At this date he was subdeacon 
of the Pope, nuncio of the apostolic see, provost of Valencia, 
and held the rectories of Montfort-sur-Rille, in France, and 
of Wetheringsett in Suffolk. He had been an ambassador of 
Henry VI to the Pope. In 1453 he received a mandate from 
the Pope to suspend the archbp. elect of Dublin and the Bishop 
of Llandaff for certain irregularities. 

Wm. Radclyff, I.U.D., was the treasurer of Lichfield. 
He was one of the papal chamberlains at Rome and as such 
received several dispensations to hold and to visit by deputy 
various benefices. He occurs as rector of S. Michael's le 
Querne, London, archdeacon of Cashel, Tipperary, and as 
an " abbreviator " of apostolic letters. In an indult to him 
to have a portable altar, etc., he is described as a priest, whose 
father and grandfather were knights. Two other Lichfield 
prebendaries received indults to let even to laymen the fruits 
of other benefices held by them, whilst residing at Lichfield, 
and a third George Radcliff aged over sixty-seven and 
the son of a knight, had an indult to visit his archdeaconry of 
Chester by deputy. 

Several dispensations to hold pluralities are given in this 
volume, a typical example being Drew Malefurmiti, who 
held prebends at Tamworth, Westminster, Salisbury, Hastings, 
and Lisieux, besides being rector of Saltwood, chaplain at 



REVIEWS. I8l 

Troyes, and parson of St. Sulpice de Plasnis. He had been 
secretary to Humphrey, Duke of Gloucester. 

On two occasions the Bishop of Lichfield received a papal 
mandate to dispense persons to remain in a marriage that 
they had contracted in ignorance of the fact that the parent 
of one had also been the godparent of the other party to the 
marriage. Papal confirmation is given to the collation by 
Bishop Bothe of his nephew aged fourteen and only in minor 
orders to the wardenship of the Denhall poor hospital ; also 
to the finding by the rector of Hanbury that the abbey of 
Darley need not maintain a separate priest at Alverston 
and that the inhabitants there should attend the parish church 
of S. Michael's, Derby. 

Space will not permit of further local extracts from this 
calendar, but perhaps sufficient have been given to show the 
kind of information given. It may be added that the eight 
preceding volumes of this series cover the period from 1198 
to 1447.

CALENDAR OF INQUISITIONS (MISCELLANEOUS). Vol. I (1219- 
I 37)- Vol. II (1307-1349). H.M. STATIONERY OFFICE 
1916. 

These volumes are the first of a series of calendars descriptive 
of the residue of the Inquisitions returned into Chancery after 
the classes known as post mortem and ad quod damnum have been 
separately calendered. It will be readily seen on looking at 
the full subject indexes how varied is the historical information 
here contained. For the most part these Inquisitions were 
taken before Sheriffs in pursuance of writs under the great 
seal, but many were taken before escheators, bailiffs of liberties, 
or commissioners, and some were taken under writs of privy 
seal. The jury system was worked hard. These inquiries 
covered elaborate statistical returns as to the extent, value, 
and customs of manors, of armour in castles (Bamborough), 
as well as escapes from prison, the fate of lost falcons, and more 
important questions of tenure and ownership. Most frequent 
are the inquests in the modern sense where deaths had to be 
inquired into. Here we are brought closely in touch with the 
everyday life of the Middle Ages : the particulars are invalu- 
able for the social historian. The reign of law was indeed a 
reality when it availed to collect a jury to inquire into the death 
of a plough-boy who, while helping his father, was accidentally 
killed by the staff (baculum) of the plough which the father was 
whirling round and round to frighten the mixed team of oxen 
and horses; and the jury find that " they know for a truth 
that Henry would rather have killed himself than his only 
son." But homicide, the outcome of sordid and even childish 
squabbles, most frequently taxed the time of the local jury- 
men. 

Hockey as a game for boys may be noted (1277), and the 
undefined " penyperche " was probably a game of cards, since 
it was played in taverns. 



REVIEWS. 183 

The student of mediaeval measurements may be glad to 
know that the " king's perch " was in Berkshire 21 feet and in 
Hampshire 20, " but not of the king's feet, and the perch 
of the hedge is 20 of the king's feet." In Staffordshire hedging 
work is still reckoned by the eight yard rood. Under highway 
law, we find in 1291 a refusal on the part of two Hundreds to 
repair a Norfolk bridge " because it was first made by alms," 
and this is not an isolated case : the Common Law gradually 
relieved a hopeless situation by fixing liability upon the county. 

Perhaps the most important section of these Inquisitions 
is that " de Rebellibus." After the battle of Evesham, fought 
in 1265, the King appointed a special Commission with a view 
to the appropriation of the land of all who had supported 
Simon de Montford. In these calendars are the returns 
for thirty counties, showing the rebels' names, but not for 
Staffordshire nor Shropshire It is news, however, that Alton 
castle was captured by Robert Ferrers from John de Verdon, 
" who held loyally by the King," and was rewarded by grants 
of land in Surrey and elsewhere. 

Several references to the numerous Swynnerton family 
are given. There is a curious robbery at Hilton, in 1324, 
Nicholas de Swynnerton, John de Charnes and others taking 
away a large quantity of armour, here detailed and valued, 
as well as " 2 tents of the price of 6 marks, 7 oxen and a cow, 
5 mares, and 4 foals and 13 she goats." Nicholas is 
described as parson of Cheleston (? Muckleston, cf. S.H.C. ix), 
and would seem to have been the brother of John. It is 
known that the family were divided in their political partisan- 
ship during the disorders of the reign of Edward II (see S.H.C., 
iii, N.S., p. 94), and this is the probable explanation of this 
profitable raid. 

No. 1758 of vol. ii contains a statement of the defects 
" of the hall and chambers of the manse of the deanery of 
Wolverhampton in the time of Master Hugh Elys, late dean." 
This has already been printed in our Collections (vol. 1913, 
pp. 82-3). It tends to prove, that the dean had been resident, 
a rare virtue in those days. 



184 REVIEWS. 

In the reign of Edward II the chief political event for 
Staffordshire was the King's successful attack on the Earl of 
Lancaster at Burton and Tutbury. We learn incidentally 
that the royal Welsh levies pilfered the chapel of Tutbury 
Castle before the King's arrival, but there is no record of any 
inquiry into the disappearance of the Earl's treasure, which 
brought suspicion upon the monks of Burton for several 
years. John de Leek was the first royal keeper. An important 
record is a finding of a jury in 1324 that the Prior of Tutbury 
" ought to have and his predecessors have had from the 
foundation of the house, viz., from the Annunciation, A.D. 1121, 
the amercements of all his tenants in the Hundred of Apeltre." 
The date given in all the books is 1080-1089, based upon a 
charter of Henry de Ferrers printed in the Monasticon, but 
the annals of the house record no prior before 1125, nor does 
D.B. include the monastery 7 in the list of Staffordshire land- 
holders. 

It is as well to point out that some of these Inquisitions 
have been already printed in full by the Society in recent 
volumes, but these being based upon the transcripts, require 
to be checked with the calendar version. In one instance, 
at least, the Inquisition on Hugh de Loges' perquisites in 
Cannock Forest (S.H.C., 1911, p. 127), there is marked 
discrepancy. 

Not a few entries disclose the details of domestic architecture 
in the thirteenth century. Perhaps some of the larger 
Staffordshire manor houses may have resembled that at 
Laughton in Sussex, which had a hall with a chapel, three 
chambers, and a garderobe adjoining at one end, and three 
solars with another garderobe at the other end. There was 
a moat round the site and a fringe of palings ; the entrance 
was over a drawbridge through a gatehouse with two houses 
on each side. Outside lay the granges and beast houses. 

The fullness of the indexes and the accuracy of the identifica- 
tions are remarkable. In one instance the editor has shrunk 
from the attempt ; a jury in 1346 sat at " Brelaughton " 
for the purpose of ascertaining the tenure of the manor of 



REVIEWS. 185 

Cresswell. This is almost certainly Burlaughton near Blym- 
hill, which may also be the scene of " a great wrestling " and 
its consequent tragedy on July 22, 1289 ; the record reads 
" Brelasto " and the index gives Barlaston. It is the Derby- 
shire parish of Norbury that had a ferry (vol. i, No. 108). 
More misleading, perhaps, is the identification of Tunstall, 
or Dunstall, in Wolverhampton manor as Tunstall in Adbaston 
(vol i, No. 441), and the busardos which destroyed an eyrie 
of sparrow-hawks in Arundel Park (No. 411 of vol. ii) were 
surely buzzards and not " bustards."

CALENDAR OF FINE ROLLS. Vol. V (1337-1347). 

The series of the records of the Chancery known as Fine 
Rolls extend from the reign of King John to that of Charles I. 
On them were entered the sums of money (or other property) 
offered to the King by way of oblation or fine for the passing 
of charters, grants of liberties, exemptions, licences, pardons, 
etc. By this means the Crown was secured a considerable 
income, no pretext being too trivial for the extortion of an 
apparently voluntary payment. The favoured receivers of 
these grants must indeed in many cases have looked upon 
them with mixed feelings. 

The present volume belongs to a period when the King 
sorely needed money for his French Wars, and several levies 
of tenths and wool subsidies are dealt with therein. There 
are also Edward's dealings with foreign merchants, the Bardi 
and Peruzzi and other financiers. Several entries deal with 
that species of taxation known as forced loans : " the King 
has ordained . . . that the merchants of Lombardy staying 
in London, who are under the King's protection and make no 
small gains from their trafficking in the realm, help the King 
with a loan of 1000 /. . . . " ; and not once only. Another 
bird to be plucked was the alien priory. The King argued 
that to have aliens, even clergy, fattening at home when he 
was at war abroad with their friends was a fit subject for a 



l86 REVIEWS. 

" fine. " There are only two of this numerous class belonging 
to Staffordshire in this volume, Lapley and Tutbury. 

In September 1337, Godbert de Lapione, fellow-monk of 
the abbot of St. Remigius (Rheims), and Robert de Shareshull, 
proctors of the said abbot of the priory of Lappeleye, were 
charged 55 marks for the favour of keeping their lands and 
goods. In May 1338, Baldwin the prior was granted the 
priory in return for an annual rent of 261. 55. J\d., he having 
petitioned that the former rent exceeded the income and that 
he not having the necessaries of life, divine worship, celebrations 
of mass, alms and other works of piety would cease. In 
July 1338 followed a pardon (or remission) of igl. I2s. ^d. 
off the above sum, on condition that he pay a like sum of 
ten marks yearly. In March 1341 this sum was doubled, 
and the prior, preferring a fixed stipend without the worry of 
ever changing assessments, surrendered the priory into the 
King's hands, who committed it to his kinsman, Henry of 
Lancaster, Earl of Derby. A similar process troubled brother 
Alexander de Portu, prior of Tutbury, which had been assessed 
at 100 marks. 

Many pages are devoted to the wool subsidy of 30,000 
sacks, 14 Ibs. to a stone and 26 stones to a sack, granted to 
the King in 1342. The Staffordshire collectors were Thomas 
de Swynerton, sheriff, Robert Mauveysyn, chivaler, John 
de Aston, chivaler, William de Perton and Ralph Basset of 
Cheadle. The assessment was 125 sacks, 12^ stones, 5 pounds, 
i quarter, at the rate of one-fifteenth. Compared with the 
480 sacks from Suffolk, 637 from Kent, 632 from Lincoln, 
or 1103 from Norfolk, Staffordshire appears to come off lightly. 
In fact, the wool-raising industry had not yet reached the 
Midlands. 

Considerable sums were paid by individuals and towns who 
wished to be freed from their assessment for supplying troops 
in 1346. Thus John de Handlo paid 160 marks for the 
remission of his quota of men-at-arms, hobelers and archers 
in counties Salop and Stafford ; William Caumpion, assessed 
at one archer, paid 405. ; John Doyly for a hobeler and archer, 



REVIEWS. 187 

8 marks ; John de Aston, Adam de Morton, Henry de Bushbury 
and Thomas de Tamhorn, 5 marks each for a hobeler ; Sir 
John de Hastang, 26 marks for two men-at-arms and two 
archers ; Sir Thomas de Halghton, lol. for one man-at-arms 
and one hobeler. The men of Penkridge, assessed at two 
armed men, were discharged from one for 5 marks. 

As rewards for service we find the bailiwick of the hundred 
of Cuddleston granted (1339) to John de Bremesgrave, the 
King's porter, in the place of John de Trove, King's serjeant- 
at-arms, deceased. Robert de Ferrers in like manner received 
grants of Pirehill (1338 to 1345). Hugh de Wrottesley had, 
during pleasure, the keeping of the manor of Tettenhall, 
at a rent of loos. He is likewise excused payment of customs 
at Antwerp on 27! sacks of his own wool put on board at 
Great Yarmouth. There are many such exemptions, the 
King's clerk, Philip de Weston, being twice so privileged. 
In him we may probably recognize the newly-appointed (1339) 
Dean of Wolverhampton. During this period he also filled 
the posts of keeper of Carisbrook Castle (1342), guardian of 
the bishopric of Winchester, steward of the lands reserved 
to the chamber and keeper of Corfe Castle, 1345. One other 
local grant deserves mention. It is that of 100 acres of waste 
in the forest of Kinver to Leo de Perton the King's pantler, 
on payment of sums from zd. to 4^. per acre a year. There 
are many place-names mentioned in the neighbourhood of 
Swindon and " the Spitelbrok," which is still marked on the 
map as a tributary of the Stour. Finally, it is interesting to 
find that Sir Robert Mauveysyn and Philip de Lutteleye, 
collectors of the subsidies of tenths and fifteenths in 1344-5, 
were to place the money in Lichfield Cathedral for safe keeping. 
Abbeys, priories and cathedrals, and in one case a church, 
served this purpose in other counties. The compilation and 
index (full and elaborate) of this volume is chiefly the work of 
Mr. A. E. Bland. This society has already printed General 
Wrottesley's abstracts from the Fine Rolls of Edward II in

CALENDAR OF CHARTER ROLLS. Vol. V (1341-1417). 

The character of the contents of this volume does not 
differ from that of previous volumes already reviewed in these 
pages (vide N.S. xii, and 1913). The charters dealt with 
largely consist of confirmations of older charters, and those 
which are new are usually grants of free-warren, markets, and 
other liberties. 

Of the former, which date from William I, but are chiefly 
of Henry I, Stephen, Henry II, and Richard I, few concern 
Staffordshire. But there is a grant of Stephen to Roger 
(de Clinton), bishop of Chester, Coventry and Lichfield of 
the churches of Pencriz and Statford (1135-6). There is also 
a curious confirmation by Henry II (marked as spurious) 
of a charter of Robert de Baskerville, granting the abbey of 
Combermere, his manor of Erlida (Yarlett) near Stafford, 
half the vills of Aston, Ennestona (Enson), and Baginhold 
(Bagnall), with the waste of Longmore. One of the witnesses 
was Radulf , clerk of Kinver, " who wrote this charter." Printed 
in full also is a charter of King Richard, granting the bishop 
the towns and churches of Rugeley and Cannock, 4 December 
1189. 

Of grants of Free Warren that to Roger Hillary in 1344 
takes first place, covering as it does the towns of Walsall, 
Rushall, Aldridge, Gorscote, Essington, Wednesbury, Tipton, 
West Bromwich, Great Barr, Little Barr, Perry Barr, Oscott, 
Hampstead, Handsworth, Fisherwick, Whittington, Horton, 
co. Stafford and two places in Warwickshire. Others are : 

William de Caverswall (with leave to make a park), at 
Cavers wall, 1344. 

Hugh Meignyll at Packington and Hints (and elsewhere),

Ralph Basset of Weldon, kt., at Madeley Alsowe, 1380. 

John de Beverley is also favoured (1372) with a grant 
of view of frank pledge and other privileges in Penkridge and 






REVIEWS.. 189 

the fees and members thereof, to wit Wolgarston, Drayton, 
Connegrove, Doneston, Coverley, Befcote and Little Onn. 
In 1364, when " king's yeoman," he had been granted a market 
and fair at Penkridge. 

Similar grants of markets and fairs were : 

to Nicholas de Beek at Tene (1355). 

to Ralph de Stafford, steward of the King's household, 

at Madeley-imder-Lime (134!) and elsewhere, 
to Nicholas de Stafford, kt., and Elizabeth his wife at 

Tiddeswell, co. Derby (1393). 
to the bailiffs and burgesses of Stafford (a yearly fair on 

3 May), 1412. 
to Richard Beauchamp, Earl of Warwick, at Walsall 

(I4I7)- 

There is a charter creating Ralph, baron of Stafford, to 
be earl, 5 March 1351, and another (1398) in favour of Joan, 
widow of the seventh and last Ralph Bassett of Drayton, 
and sister of John, Duke of Brittany and Earl of Richmond. 
We may infer from a charter dated at Lichfield, 8 May 1348, 
that the King was passing, through the county at that time. 

In one of the indexes the places are grouped under counties, 
no easy matter, and such mistakes as arise may probably be 
due to faulty rubrication in the original Hints, for instance, 
is not in Derbyshire. It may also be suggested that Shrews- 
bury abbey's manor " de loco Sancti Johannis Baptist? in the 
wood of Suthon, co. Stafford," which is indexed as Sutton in 
Norbury, is probably Sutton, near Shrewsbury, which the 
abbey had in 1240, * and where there was a church of St. John. 
Does not Sutton near Norbury belong to Meer ?
