INTRODUCTION. 



No department of English history has been less cultivated than that relating 
to the domestic economy of the people during the middle ages. There is 
no work expressly devoted to the subject; and the scanty notices which are 
given by Henry and other historical writers, scarcely deserve mention. 

To trace the progress of a nation in the arts of domestic life is, strictly 
speaking, to trace its advance in civilization, of which those events which 
form the staple of political narratives are but simple results. This pursuit, 
however, derives little aid from chroniclers who detail the general history 
of their own, or preceding ages. The habits and customs of the past were 
unknown to such writers, and it never occurred to them that the every day 
life of the times in which they lived, would eventually become an object of 
enquiry to posterity, for whose benefit they professed to write. Hence, their 
allusions to such matters are of that vague and unsatisfactory nature to be 
expected from people who refer to a state of things in which they had been 
bred : however, it occasionally happens, that when they record their asto- 
nishment at a novelty, or condemn a departure from ancient customs, the 
expression of their ignorance, or prejudice, enables us to date the invention 
of some useful art, or the importation of an article of convenience, or luxury, 
tin then unknown. 

But, if historians fail to supply the desired information, other and ample 
sources are open to enquiry. Our ancient rhymers and romancers abound in 
allusions to, and descriptions of the domestic habits and manners of their 
respective eras. We have a long series of the records of criminal trials, 

b 



which besides illustrating the spirit, necessarily involve some detail of the 
most remarkable features in the internal condition of the people, during 
successive ages; and many accounts have descended to us of the daily 
expenditure of individuals who belonged to the higher ranks of society, and 
who consequently enjoyed the few luxuries and additions to the necessaries 
of life, which wealth alone could procure in the infancy of commerce. 

The present volume is intended as a contribution to this branch of history. 
It comprises accounts of domestic expenses at two very distinct periods of 
EngUsh story, not less remarkable for the contrast they present in the social 
condition of the people, than for the great pohtical events by which they 
are respectively distinguished. 

Between the insurrection of the barons, in the reign of Henry the Third, 
and the contest of the rival houses of York and Lancaster, in the fifteenth 
century, there occurs a space of nearly two hujidred years, signalised by 
some of the most important changes, not only in EngUsh, but in European 
manners and institutions, upon which the historian can dwell ; changes of 
which the influence on the general habits of life is conspicuous in this work, 
which presents a comprehensive view of the necessaries and conveniences 
of life at the first and last of the periods mentioned, and casts a strong light 
upon the early condition and progressive improvement of the manufactures, 
trade, and commerce of England. 

Besides their statistical importance, the following accounts have an 
additional value as memorials of individuals celebrated in history. 

Although the Countess of Leicester has been more indebted to the renown 
of her husband than to any memorial of her own merits, for whatever notice 
has been hitherto taken of her career, she appears to have been a remarkable 
person considering her sex and the age in which she lived. 

A tale the probability of which is rendered credible by more ancient, as 
well as more recent, instances of female heroism and devotion, and which 



lU 



touches one of the most sensitive chords in man's nature, has embahned the 
memory of Eleanor of Castile. It is one of those popular and poetical traditions, 
associated ■«"ith early notions of history, and rendered familiar by painter and 
sculptor, which the critic who would investigate its foundation in truth, must 
approach with respect, and doubt with reluctance. Admitting however that 
it is a mere invention, the general testimony of history, and the grateful 
sorrow of ner husband, who would have perpetuated her name by the beau- 
tiful crosses of which so few have escaped the ravages of time and man, 
sufficiently attest her virtues as a woman and a wife : and if the graceful effigy 
on her tomb at Westminster, which in chaste beauty all but approaches that 
ideal standard of perfection at which the sculptor aimed in the best times of 
Grecian art, may be considered a portrait, her personal graces were not infe- 
rior to her mental endowments. 

Sir John Howard whose successful ambition first raised to the peerage a 
family than which none has been more distinguished in Enghsh History, 
played a conspicuous part in a dark and unhappy period of our annals. The 
accounts of his expenditure, during the early years of the reign of Edward 
the Fourth, shew that he was a prudent manager of his private fortune ; and 
the few remaining specimens of his correspondence throw some light upon 
his character, and prove that he possessed an average share of that sort 
of education which fell to the lot of persons of rank, in the fifteenth century. 
His accounts present also many notices of individuals remarkable for their 
share in the ferocious and desolating warfare of the Roses, not a few of whom 
paid a heavy penalty for their misdeeds as the fdrtunes and scaflFolds of either 
party rose and fell. To the general antiquary and topographer the Howard 
Household Books will prove a mine of interesting and valuable information. 

Having thus briefly stated the object of this collection, and the nature 
of its contents ; it is requisite to give some detailed account of the three 
eminent persons to whom it relates, as well as an analysis of the infor- 
mation to be procured firom the documents now first printed. 



I. The Household Roll, of Eleanok, Countess of 

Leicester. 

Eleanor, the third daughter of John, King of England, by Isabella of 
Angouleme, was bom, probably, about the year 1212 : but for this date, 
there is no authority,* beyond what may be derived from the following cir- 
cumstances. 

Joan, her eldest sister, married to Alexander King of Scotland, in 1221, 
is described, by a contemporary writer,* as " a girl of very tender age ;" an 
expression which, having regard to the custom prevailing at the time, of 
marrying females when they were little more than infants, may be under- 
stood to mean that she was about eleven years old ; thereby giving the year 
1210 as the period of her birth. Matthew Paris describing the presentation 
of Isabella, the second daughter, to the ambassadors of the Emperor Fre- 
derick II., who came to ask her in marriage for their sovereign, in 1235, 
says she was then in her twenty-first year f according to which her birth 
must have occurred in 1214. There is reason, however, to believe that this 
statement is incorrect ; for, admitting it to be true, and that Eleanor, the 
third and youngest daughter, was bom in 1215, she could have been scarcely 
ten years old at the time of her marriage to Wilham Mareschal, in 1225. It 
is, therefore, more reasonable to infer, that the historian spoke without 

' The years in which the daughters of John were born, are not mentioned by any of the Chro- 
niclers. His marriage with Isabella took place in 1200, and it is believed that Henry the Third, born 
in 1207, was the first child, as he was the eldest son of his parents. (M. Paris, ed. 1684, p. 189.) 
Richard, Earl of Cornwall, the second son, was born in 1208 (lb.), or 1209 (Lelandi Collect, ii. 
455). the absence of any evidence that even one of the daughters was born before the year 1207 
coupled with the remarks of the Chroniclers, as to their respective ages when married, which go to 
prove they were all born after 1208, has induced the adoption, of the years mentioned above. 

^ Chronicon de Lanercost, p. 29. s p, 350. 



certain knowledge of the age of Isabella, and it is possible that no great 
deviation wiU be made from truth, in assigning the births of the second and 
third daughters of John to the years 1210 and 1212. According to this cal- 
culation Eleanor would have been thirteen at the period of her marriage, 
and lAbella twenty-five when contracted to the Emperor of Germany. 

William Mareschal, Earl of Pembroke, eldest son and heir of the prudent 
and vahant nobleman to whose energy and conduct Henry the Third was 
indebted for his throne, obtained the young Princess in marriage in 1225.' 
After this event we have no mention of her until the death of her husbandj 
in 1231.2 

In the family of the Mareschals abUity and valour were a common inherit- 
ance, and if the Earl of Pembroke was any otherwise" distinguished above 
the four brothers who successively inherited his title and property, it was, 
perhaps, in being less unfortunate than they were in life. Henry the Third 
is said to have been sincerely attached to him, and exclaimed on seeing his 
dead body, " Alas ! is the blood of Saint Thomas the Martyr not yet fully 
avenged."^ 

Eleanor was childless at her husband's death, and ample provision had 
been made for her widowhood. By his first wife, the daughter of Baldwin 
de Bethune, Earl of Albemarle, whom he married in 1204, the Earl of Pem- 
broke had acquired many valuable and extensive manors, which were con- 
firmed to him by charter in 1 230,^ with remainder to his wife Eleanor, in the 
event of her surviving him. She had also an annuity of four hundred pounds 
payable by his heirs out of the Irish estates of the family.

in 1226, quoted by Sandford (Genealogical History, p. 87), and printed in the Foedera (vol. i. p. 286) ; 
as the marriage is therein spoken of by the King as an event which had occurred some time before. 
By some writers, however, the year 1224, is given as the date of their marriage. Ann. Waverl-,

Within four years from the death of her husband, the Countess of Pem- 
broke made a vow of perpetual ceUbacy to Edmund^ Archbishop of Canterbury, 
and Richard, Bishop of Chichester, receiving the ring and mantle of profession 
in public' This solemn engagement was as ill observed as it was, perhaps, 
rashly incurred. 

The patronage bestowed by Henry the Third upon foreigners, had its 
origin quite as much in the necessities of his situation, as in any especial 
prejudice in their favour. He had attempted to violate the established laws 
of the kingdom, and the fatal example of his father instead of deterring him 
from a like course, seems rather to have excited him to try every expedient 
to obtain the same objects, the pursuit of which brought John to a prema- 
ture grave, and had nearly deprived him of his throne. Having thus 
alienated the affections of his nobility and the church, it was not easy to 
find, among his own subjects, men sufficiently unscrupulous to aid him in 
his endeavours to humiliate and lessen the power of the Barons, and to 
plan and carry into execution those rapacious schemes, by which all classes 
were in turn pillaged and oppressed. ' Such instruments of extortion were 
readily chosen among the Poitevin and Norman adventurers, who flocked to 
the English Court. They were promoted to the highest offices in church 
and state, and as their sole object was to enrich themselves, and as the 
attainment of that object depended on the maintenance of the crown in its 
loftiest pretensions to power, the variety of their political inventions was as 
endless as their avarice was insatiable. 

Among the most distinguished aliens who repaired to England in the early 
years of Henry's reign, few could compete, in personal and family advan- 
tages, with Simon de Montfort. He came ostensibly to solicit the restora- 
tion of his father's estates to his elder brother, Amauri in reahty to get ; 
what he could in a country, like even unto a " land flowing with milk and 
honey" to the younger branches of the French nobility. Before the success 
which attended his appearance is related, it is necessary to give some account

of his parentage, respecting which considerable misapprehension has Ion" 
prevailed. 

Simon IV., Comte de Montfort, second son of Simon III., snmamed the 
Bald, eighth Baron and third Comte de Montfort, also third Comte d'Evreux 
of the house of Montfort, by Amicia,' eldest sister and co-heiress of Robert 
Fitz-Pemell, Earl of Leicester, inherited, in right of his mother, one moiety 
of the county of Leicester, with the Honour of Hinckley and the office of 
Lord High Steward of England. 

Dugdale says he was created Earl of Leicester in 1206, but no charter of 
creation is now in 'existence; the document upon which he founded his asser- 
tion, an abstract of which follows, cannot be considered as such. 

King John, by a charter dated on the 10th of March, 1206, confirmed the 
partition of the lands and honours possessed by Robert, Earl of Leicester, 
on the day of his death, made before him and his barons, between Simon de 
Montfort, Earl of Leicester, and Saiher de Quenci, Earl of Winchester, to 
this effect. Each Earl was to have one moiety of the estates ; the third 
penny of the county of Leicester, " unde ipse comes est," the capital mes- 
suage at Leicester, and the Stewardship,'' being reserved to Simon de Mont- 
fort ; but to the Earl of Winchester were secured forty librates of land out 

' The name is both Amicia and Avicia, in English records. She survived her husband many 
years, her death being subsequent to that of her brother, who died in 1204. In 1201 Simon de 
Montfort, her son, obtained the King's license to mortgage his mother's land at Winterboume Stoke, 
Co. Wilts., for three years (Cart. 2 Joh. m. 8, in dorso. This he did probably to raise money for 
the purpose of joining the Crusade of 1202. — " Avec ces deux contes (Thibaut, Comte de Cham- 
pagne et de Brie, et Louys, Comte de Blois et de Chartres,) se croisserent deux mult halt Baron de 
France, Symons de Monfort et Renauz de Mommirail. Mult fu gran renom^e par les terres quant 
cil deux halt homes s'en croisserent." — (Ville-Hardouin, Conqueste de Constantinople, ed. Ducange, 
Far. 1657, p. 2.) Montfort and others withdrew from the Crusade after the capture of Zara. 
(lb. pp. 41-2.) In 1205 the Sheriff of Wilts was directed to give possession of the manor of Win- 
terboume Stoke to Amicia, Countess of Montfort, it being a part of her dower. The King had 
granted the custody of it to Saiher de Quenci. (Claus. 6 Joh. m. 2.) 

' The dignity of Lord High Steward of England was originally annexed to the Honour of Hinckley, 
and afterwards to the Earldom of Leicester. Selden's Titles of Honour, in the edition of his works 
by Wilkins, vol. 3, col. 687-8. 



of the portion of Simon, until such time as the said Earl should obtain his 
rationable share of the lands which the deceased Earl of Leicester had pos- 
sessed in Normandy. Upon the deaths of the two Countesses of Leicester, 
viz., PetroniUa, the mother, and Laurentia, or Lauretta, widow of the late 
Earl, the estates held by them, in dower, were to be equally divided between 
Montfort and the Earl of Winchester,' 

Following the scanty notices of Simon de Montfort IV., which occur in 
the records of the reign of John, we find that in 1207, he was indebted to 
the crown, and that the custody of all his lands was given to Robert de 
Ropeley, who was to apply the revenues thereof, in satisfaction of the King's 
claims.^ Not long after this he was banished the kingdom, and his estates 
forfeited.^ 

Although driven from the country he appears to have had a strong party 
among the Enghsh nobility, and he did not entirely cease to be a cause of 



' Cart. Antiq., K. 17. Notwithstanding this charter, it may be doubted whether Simon de Mont- 
fort ever fully enjoyed the share of the Leicester estates thus secured to him. On the death of her 
son, in 1204, Petronilla, Countess of Leicester, paid a fine of 3000 marks to obtain possession of 
Leicester, with its appurtenances, together with the lands belonging to the Honour of Grantmesnil, 
both within, and without the county of Leicester : all which the King granted to her. (Fines, 6 
Joh. m. 10.) John resumed these lands in 1205, and regranted them to Saiher de Quenci for a fine 
of 5000 marks. (Fines, 7 Joh. m. 10.) However extraordinary this proceeding may appear, it must 
be recollected that it took place under the most profligate sovereign who ever filled the English 
throne. Thus at the time of the charter quoted above, de Quenci was in actual possession of the 
greater portion of Montfort's assigned share, the Honour of Hinckley being parcel of the Grsint- 
mesnil fee, of which Petronilla was heiress. 

2 Pat. 8 Joh. m. 3. In the same year Ropeley paid into the King's chamber, on the Monday after 
the feast of St. Dunstan, one hundred and forty six pounds, thirteen shillings and four pence, out of 
the issues of Montfort's Honour of Leicester (Claus. 8 Joh. m. 1.) ; and in the foUo^wing year, on the 
feast of Sts. Peter and Paul, he accounted in the sum of 100 marks. (Claus. 9 Joh. m. 17.) The 
smallness of these sums compared with the magnitude of his supposed property seems to confirm the 
doubt expressed in the preceding note. 

' The only authority for this fact, and a worthless one too, is Knyghton, who does not give the 
date. (Script. Decem Twysd., col. 2347.) His disgrace must have taken place Before 1208, in which 
year he was chosen to command against the Albigeois.

disquiet to John. In 1210 the King was on his road to chastise the Welsh 
for their ravages on the English march, when he was stopped at Nottingham, 
by the report of a conspiracy among the Barons, who were said to have 
elected Montfort King of England. It is probable that this was nothing 
more than one of the many rumours of that turbulent period, but, being 
recorded by a contemporary annalist,' it may serve to mark the degree of 
estimation in which the E^rl of Leicester was held. 

During an exile from England protracted to the day of his death, the 
military skill of Simon de Montfort was exhibited in the memorable crusades 
against the unfortunate Albigeois. The history of these wars ^ is little more 
than a catalogue of the deeds of ferocious cruelty perpetrated by his orders 
upon the miserable people whom he was commissioned to exterminate. 
After ten years of uninterrupted warfare, marked by atrocities which have, 
happily, few parallels in the history of mankind, he was slain before Tou- 
louse, in the year 1218.' 

By his wife Alix, daughter of Bouchard V., Sire de Montmorenci, he 
left four sons and three daughters. The sons were Amauri, who succeeded 
him as Comte de Montfort, Guy, Comte de Bigorre, Robert who died un- 
married, and Simon, the subject of the present notice. 

In 1215, the last year of the reign of King John, the Comte de Montfort 
had succeeded in obtaining the restitution of his estates, the custody of 
which was given to Ranulph, Earl of Chester,* in trust for his use.' It

' He was killed by a stone discharged from the walls of the town : " obiit ad obsidionem Tolosae, 
percussus lapide mangunelli." (Ann. de Dunstaple, i. 88 : see also L'Art de verifier les Dates.) In a 
writ of the 18th of 'July, 1218, granting the custody of his English estates to the infamous Stephen 
de Segrave, the King says, " audiyimus quod Comes Simon de Monte Forti in fata concessit." 
(Claus. 2 Hen. 3, m. 3.) In the following month of August, Peter de Roches, Bishop of Winchester, 
obtained the custody of his lands. (lb.) 

* His nephew ; Bertrade, Montfort" s sister, married Hugh, Earl of Chester. See the Pedigree. 

' Pat. 17 Joh. m. 19, Hence Knyghton's error in stating that the county of Leicester, with the 

C 



appears probable, al^o, that he was partially indemnified for the loss occa- 
sioned by his forfeiture.' 

It would not have been necessary to give this particular account of 
the parentage of Simon de Montfort V., who acted so conspicuous a part in 
the troubles of the reign of Henry the Third, but for the fact that, by Eng- 
lish historians and genealogists, the Comte de Montfort has been invariably 
confoimded with his father, Simon the Bald, Comte d'Evreux, who has thus 
been considered to have enjoyed the title of Earl of Leicester, in right of his 
wife f the truth being that he died twenty-three years before his brother-in- 
law,^ Robert Fitz-Pemell, last Earl of Leicester, of the Bellomont hne. The 
annexed pedigree of Simon de Montfort V., founded chiefly upon the autho- 
rity of " L'Art de Verifier les Dates," and corroborated by the evidence of 
English records, is presumed to be correct ; and wiU materially assist in 
elucidating the narrative of his early career in England, which it is now time 
to resume. 

Already distinguished in arms, tall, handsome, and insinuating in his 

Honour of Hinckley, were given to the Earl of Chester, upon the banishment of his uncle. 
(Twysden, Script. Dec. col. 2347.) Knyghton is copied by Dugdale (Baronage, i. 752), who 
mentions the same grant twuie, and in the second instance gives the terms of it correctly ; but he 
evidently considered there had been two distinct charters. 

' The mayor and commonalty of Reole, were ordered to indemnify the Archbishop of Bordeaux, 
in the sum of 20,000 shillings, (Bordeaux money ?) for which he had become John's security to 
Earl Simon de Montfort. (Claus. 16 Joh. ra. 21.) 

' One of the first who fell into this error was Francis Thynne, alias Botteville, in his " Discourse 
of the Earles of Leicester," printed in the original edition of Holinshed's Chronicles, but suppressed, 
being ofiFenaive to Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester. (Hearne's " Curious Discourses," table of eon- 
tents, art. VL) Dugdale consecrated the mistake (Baronage, i. 751), and has been copied by every 
writer from Sandford (Genealogical History, p. 87), down to Sir Harris Nicolas (Synopsis of the 
Peerage, i. 367). A glimmering of the truth dawned upon the writer of the memoir of Simon de 
Montfort, in Nichols's "History and Antiquities of Leicester" (vol. i. pt. 1. p. 99); but in the 
pedigree of the Bellomonts (p.- 98) the old story is repeated. Even Ducange represents him to have 
been the husband, instead of the son, of Avicia. See his edition of Ville-Hardoiiin, — Observations sur 
I'Histoire, p. 250, ed. Par. 1657. 
' The Comte d' Evreux died in 1181 at the latest. See L'Art de Verifier les Dates.

address, young Simon de Montfort speedily attracted the notice and favor of 
the weak and capricious Henry the Third.' In 1231 he obtained a grant of 
his father's share of the Honour of Leicester,'' and in the following year the 
King gave him all the land " with appurtenances " which belonged to " Simon 
de Montfort, late Earl of Leicester," in England. This was, in fact a creation 
to the Earldom of Leicester, to which his elder brother Amauri, Comte de 
Montfort, who had assumed the title, but unsuccessfully solicited from Henry 
a confirmation of it, as weU as the restoration of the estates, had resigned all 
claim in his favour.* 

In 1236 Simon de Montfort assisted at the marriage of Henry to Eleanor 
of Provenge, holding the King's basin at dinner ; and in the same year he is 
said to have conspired with Peter de Rivaux in procuring the disgrace and 
imprisonment of Richard Sward, or Siward,* a valiant knight, distinguished 
for his adherence to the Amfortunate Richard Mareschal, Earl of Pembroke.* 

While the Earl of Leicester had been making rapid advances in the favor 
of his sovereign, he had also succeeded in gaining the affections of the widowed 
Countess of Pembroke. By some writers of that age Eleanor is represented 
to have been more than imprudent in her advances to him : a statement 
countenanced by the King's subsequent conduct and language. However 

' The age of Simon de Montfort when he came to England, and the date of his arrival, are, alike, 
unknown. His personal appearance is noticed by the Chronicler of Lanercost, p. 39. 

' Rot. Fin. 15 Hen. 3, m. 3. — Claus. 15 Hen. 3, m. 8. Dugdale says the estates were restored to 
him upon the decease of Ranulpb, Earl of Chester ; he supposed that nobleman had the custody of 
them from 1215 till his death in 123! ; when, in fact, they were taken from him in 1218, and 
entrusted to the Bishop of Winchester. See p. ix., ante note. 3. 

' Pat. 16 Hen. 3, m. 6. The patent recites that the King made the grant at the prayer of

this may have been her partiality towards him did not escape the notice of 
the pious Edmund, Archbishop of Canterbury, who strongly remonstrated 
with Henry and his sister upon the impiety of their purpose, but without 
eflfect,' Montfort and the Countess were secretly married in the King's 
private chapel, at Westminster, on the 6th of January, 1238. Henry gave 
away the bride, and the ceremony was performed by one of the royal 
chaplains.* 

A chronicler who is presumed to have been contemporary with this event, 
and who, like most of his class, is accustomed to ascribe the residts of political 
motives, not very clear, perhaps, at the time, to some remarkable object of 
popular wonder or dislike, attributes the voluntary esdle of the Archbishop 
of Canterbury to his unsuccessful opposition to this marriage.' The state- 
ment is wholly wrong. However, we are told, in language both vivid and pic- 
turesque, that the Prelate when leaving England, stood upon a hill which 
commanded a view of London, and extending his hands towards the city, 
pronounced a parting blessing on his country, and a curse upon the Countess 
and the offspring of her unholy union.* It is more than probable that the 
unfortunate events of after years suggested the insertion of this story, so 
creditable to the prophetical powers of St. Edmund. 

' The opposition of the Archbishop is recorded by the Chronicler of Lanercost : — " audacter 
obstitit regi ; et sicut nobilis aries sanctus ejus prsedecessor Thomas, tuendam suscepit ecclesiae Dei 
libertatem, sic ipse tueri nisus est sponsiE Dei castitatem" (p. 39). It will be recollected that the 
Countess had vowed celibacy. 

' M. Paris, 393 ; Ann. Waverl., Gale, ii. 197. A strange opinion prevailed among the Chroniclers 
that the King promoted this marriage to secure heirs to the crown, the Queen being, as yet, child- 
less (Chron. de Lanercost, p. 39) ; and M. Paris, writing of the birth of Montfort's first child, says 
it was born "adrcgni robur et solatium. Timebatur enim ne regina sterilis esset" (p. 407). This 
too when Richard Earl of Cornwall was living ! 

3 According to the Annals of Waverley the Archbishop joumied to Rome in 1238, upon the 
occasion of a dispute with the monks of Canterbury, but returned within a short time : it was not 
until 1240that he entirely withdrew firom England. (Gale, ii. 198 : M. Paris, 476.) 

* " Certe etsi genuerit, semen suum non diu permanebit." (Chron. de Lanercost, p. 39.) Heming- 
ford who omits Joan, the eldest daughter, in his account of the children of King John, and splits 
the Countess of Leicester into two persons, attributes a similar expression to Robert Grostf te, Bishop 
of Lincoln (Gale, ii. 560) ; he is copied verbatim by Knyghton. (Twysden, col. 2426.)

The secret of the marriage was so carefully kept, that although it took 
place in January, Richard, Earl of Cornwall, the King's brother, did not hear 
of it until the following month of March, and subsequently to receiving a 
letter from the Emperor Frederick acquainting him that his sister the 
Empress had been dehvered of a son.' His joy at this intelligence was 
speedily mingled with indignation when informed of Eleanor's alliance con- 
cluded without his knowledge and assent ; and his anger was increased by 
Henry having, with equal secrecy, married Richard de Clare, Earl of Glou- 
cester, a rich ward of the crown, to the daughter of John de Laci, Earl of 
Lincoln.^ 

Richard accused his brother of bad faith in still continuing to foUow the 
advice of aliens whom he had promised to remove from about his person ; 
and of rashness in presuming to undertake affairs which so nearly affected 
the welfare of the kingdom, without the privity of his natural counsellors.' 
Supported in these remonstrances by the nobility who saw, in this distinction 
bestowed upon another foreigner, that less dependence than ever was to be 
placed on Henry's reiterated professions of amendment. Earl Richard 
assumed an offensive attitude — " and then most certainly it was hoped that 
he would deliver the country from the miserable rule, as well of the Romans 
as of the other aUens by whom it was oppressed ; and all from the child to 
the old man heaped frequent blessings upon him." The XiCgate Otho offered 
his mediation, which was indignantly rejected, and Henry obtained, with 
difficulty, a truce until the first Monday in Lent, to enable him to devise 
some method of satisfying the insurgents.^ 

Tlie beneficial results so anxioiisly and confidently anticipated, from this 
shew of power and resolution on the part of the nobility, were not attained. 
The malcontents, headed by the Earl of Cornwall, assembled in arms and 
great force at London, on the expiration of the truce.= But while the con- 
cessions they demanded were discussed by the King's creatures, with artfiil 
delay, intrigue was busy with their chief. Through the intercession of

friends, powerfully seconded by valuable presents, Montfort succeeded in 
gaining over the Earl ; the insurgents, disgusted by the insincerity and defec- 
tion of their leader, quickly dispersed, and the storm so suddenly raised as 
suddenly passed away. This conduct, however, " greatly obscured the fame 
of Earl Richard ; and thus he who had been thought a staff of strength, 
was, henceforth, suspected/" 

The Earl of Leicester found, however, that his marriage was generally 
regarded as null and void, owing to the sacred obligation incurred by the 
Countess during her widowhood. He withdrew, therefore, from court, and 
retired to Leicester, where he amassed as much money as he could,, taking 
from one burgess the large sum of 500 marks ;^ and shortly afterwards, with 
the consent, and under the protection of the King,' set out for Rome, to 
procure a dispensation for his wife, whom he left, pregnant, at Kenilworth, 
to await the result of his journey.'' 

In order to obtain greater influence with the Pope, Simon appUed in the 
first instance to the Emperor Frederic. It is stated that he bore arms under 
himj' if so, it must have been for a very short time. At length, fortified by 
his favour and letters of recommendation, he appeared at the papal court, 

' Ibid. 396. » Ibid. 396. 

' The words of Matthew Paris (p. 396) convey » contrary impression ; but the fact is placed 
beyond doubt by the following letters of credence, now for the first time published. " Rex 
universis cardinalibus, salutem. Dilectum fratrem et fidelem nostrum Simonem de Montefortl, 
pro quibusdam negotiis honorem et commodum nostrum, necnon et regni nostri, tangentibus ad 
sedem apostolicam duximus transmittendum ; paternitatem vestram attente rogantes, quatinus in 
hiis quae prsedictus Simon vobis exponet, et quaj ad nostrum, necnon et regni nostri, commodum 
spectant, pariter et honorem, ei fidem adhibere velitis. In cujus etc. T. Rege, apud Theokesberiam,

Per eadem verba scribitur domino Papse." Pat. 22 Hen. III. m. 8. 

» The writer of the early portion of the Chronicle of Lanercost, ■*ho says he derived his information 
from the confessor of Simon de Montfort, states that the Earl went to Rome in company with his 
'wife, " ubi discussa eorum vel vera vel prsetensa causa a domino Gregorio papa, dispensatorie con- 
junguntur :" but a doubt is cast upon the accuracy of his account when he proceeds to say " licet 
idem bonae fidei comes, ob conscienticB teneritudinem, duodecim annis ab uxoris suae amplexu 
abstinuerit ;" an assertion both false and absurd: compare M. Paris, 396. 
' M. Paris, 396. 



XVI 

and after spending large sums of money, and promising far more than he 
spent, finally succeeded in obtaining a dispensation, which the Legate Otho 
was commanded to pronounce in public with due solemnity.' 

This grant was severely commented upon by the English clergy, to whom 
it seemed directly contrary to the canons of the church, and calculated to 
compromise the sanctity of the papal character j but, as the monk of St. 
Alban's sarcastically observes, " the court of Rome reasoned more subtilely 
than it is permitted unto us to comprehend."* 

The Earl of Leicester returned to England on the 14th of October, 1238,* 
and was graciously received by the King and his brother. He hastened 
from the court to rejoin his wife at Kenilworth, where their eldest son, 
Henry, was bom on Advent Sunday following ; and baptized by the Bishop 
of Chester, who was taken ill after the ceremony and died within a few- 
days.* 

On the 2nd of February, 1239, Henry solemnly invested Simon with the 
Earldom of Leicester, to which dignity Amauri, Comte de Montfort, again 
resigned all claim in his favour.' 

The Earl, however, was not destined to maintain an unshaken hold upon 
the affections of his fickle sovereign. In the following month of August 
many of the nobles and their wives assembled in London, to be present at

friar, and others, " sanctitatem Papse circumveniri, et animas periclitari, Christumque zelotypari

* Ibid. 407. The writer of the memoir of Simon de Montfort, in Nichols's " History and Anti-

release was confirmed by Henry the Third, on the 17th of April, in the same year. Both docu- 
ments are printed in the Appendix to Nichols's " History and Antiquities of Leicester," No. xvi.

the churching of Queen Eleanor, who had given birth to Prince Edward in 
the preceding July. Amongst the rest the Earl and Countess of Leicester 
presented themselves to assist at the solemnity. Henry prohibited them from 
attending ; assigned as a reason, that Simon was an excommunicated per- 
son, who had basely and wickedly seduced his wife before marriage ; and 
added, that he had unwillingly permitted their nuptials to conceal his sister's 
shame. Upon this repulse the Earl and Countess withdrew to Winchester 
House in Southwark, which, during the vacancy of the see, had been lent 
them for a residence. From that place, however, Henry ordered them to be 
instantly ejected. Finding that no entreaties could appease the King's real 
or affected indignation, and dreading more serious consequences, Simon and 
his wife, with a few attendants, took ship in the Thames the same day and 
went over to France.' 

It is possible there may have' been some foundation for this charge against 
the Earl ; but as the King admitted his knowledge of the circumstance to 
have preceded the marriage ; and as subsequently to that event, far from 
shewing any displeasure, he had bestowed many marks of favour upon him ; 
it must be obvious that Henry's sense of Montfort's misconduct was shewn 
somewhat too late not to excite a suspicion that his sudden ebullition of 
anger was produced by some more immediate cause than that assigned by 
him. It wiU be recollected that the Earl of Leicester had, with Henry's 
countenance, sought and obtained a dispensatioa for his marriage, that he 
was compelled to bribe the papal authorities to an enormous extent, and had 
promised more than he actually paid. Relying upon the King's favour and 
anxiety to promote the success of his suit he had secretly and wholly ■without 
sanction, made him a joint security with himself for the discharge of the 
additional sums he undertook to pay.^ Having failed, eventually, to ftdfil

seriiB tuse, me inconsultum et nescium, fidejussorem, per falsum testimonium, interposuisti :" p. 422. 
It should be observed, however, that Montfort's credentials gave him full power to use the King's 
name in the prosecution of his suit. See p. xv. ante, note 3 .

his engagements, the hungry ItaUans applied to Henry, who then first learned 
how greatly he had been involved by the Earl, and hence his violent burst of 
indignation. It is quite clear that if his pocket had been untouched the 
King would not have troubled himself about his sister's honour. The papal 
emissaries hinted, probably, that as the price of the dispensation had not 
been duly paid that document could be set aside as readily as it had been 
granted ; and Simon be still held liable to excommunication. " Failing in 
the payment of the money," said Henry, " you have deserved to be excom- 
municated." ' 

The King's resentment did not last long. After an exile of seven or eight 
months, the Earl of Leicester succeeded in effecting a reconciliation with his 
royal brother-in-law, and in April, 1240, returned to England, where he 
was honourably received. The Countess being again pregnant remaiped 
abroad.^ 

His chief object during a short stay was to collect money to enable him to 
join the Crusade, for which Richard, Earl of Cornwall and many of the Eng- 
lish ■ nobility were preparing. He had a family motive for sharing in this 
expedition ; his brother Amauri having been taken prisoner at the battle of 
Gaza, the year before, was yet a captive at Babylon. On this occasion 
Simon aUenated some of his lands, particularly the forest of Leicester, which 
he sold to the Hospitallers and Canons of that town, for above one thousand 
pounds.^ 

We have no account of the exploits of the Earl during this crusade ; * but 
they seem to have gained him some reputation, and he attracted the notice 
of the nobility of the unfortunate and distracted kingdom of Jerusalem, who 
in June, 1241, petitioned the Emperor Frederick II. to appoint him governor 
of the country until the majority of King Conrad, and until he should

come thither, or appoint some other deputy in the Earl's place.' The peti- 
tion proceeds : 

" And that the aforesaid Lord Simon de Montfort shall swear to keep and 
preserve the rights of the Emperor, and of his son. King Conrad, and all 
those who are in the land, both the going and coming, and the resident, on land

contemporary copy of the petition, (perhaps the original,) is preserved in the Cottonian MS., Ves- 
pasian F. i. fol. 114, and is novf, for the first time, printed.

firm and stable, we have thereunto hung our seals. This was done in the 
year of the Incarnation of our Lord Jesus Christ, 1241, on the 7th day of the 
month of Jime, at Acre." , 

The reception this petition met with from Frederick is not known. Leices- 
ter returned to England in the following year, and accompanied Henry in his 
mad expedition into Poitou, where he greatly distinguished himself at the 
battle of Xaintes. After Henry quitted the field and retired to Bordeaux, 
where he idled his time and expended large sums of money in feasting the 
Viscountess of Beam,' and her son, Gaston, Montfort and William, Earl of 
Salisbury, remained with him to their great loss and embarrassment long 
after most of the nobility, disgusted by the King's thoughtlessness and levity, 
had returned to England. 

In 1244 Simon was one of the committee, chosen by the nobility and 
clergy to deliberate upon the grant of a subsidy to the King;" and in 1246 
his name appears among the writers of the letter from the English Baronage 
to the Pope, detailing the grievances inflicted upon the realm of England, 
by the agents of the court of Rome.* 

When St. Louis of France made preparations for another crusade in 1248, 



' "Mulier singulariter monstruosa, et pree grassitudine prodigiosa," says M. Paris, 526. 
•^ M. Paris, 563-4. 3 Ibid. 613.

Montfort, his immediate retainers, and many of the English nobles assumed 
the cross and resolved to join the expedition.' On this occasion he obtained 
the King's consent, that for eight years following the day of his death, the 
revenues of all his lands of the Honour of Leicester should be applied to the 
payment of his debts and the execution of his wUl.^ 

He was prevented from fulfilling his intention, by being, in the same year, 
appointed Seneschal of Guienne,' which had long been in a rebellious con- 
dition, and defied aU the efforts of the King's lieutenants to reduce it to 
order. In his government of that important province, Montfort displayed 
great energy and ability. In the outset, he compelled Gaston de Beam to 
agree to a trude, and then turned his arms with success against the smaller 
rebels who desolated the country in every direction,* and whom he soon 
succeeded in subduing. Gaston, himself, was eventually captured, and sent 
in chains to England, Leicester shewed Uttle clemency in his treatment of 
the conquered," and from the frequent complaints of the Gascons, during 
his subsequent administration of their affairs, it is impossible not to beheve 
they had every reason to be dissatisfied with his violence and oppression.' 

From the year 1252, when he was recalled from Gascony,' the history of 
the Earl of Leicester becomes an essential part of the history of England,

be found, but it was dated hefare the 6th of February 1249. (Pat. 33, Hen. 3, m. V-ii.) In 1252 
Henry, who was anxious to settle the province upon Prince Edward, agreed to give the Earl 7000 
marks (£4666. 13i. 4(i.) to surrender his office. This sum was actually paid him by instalments.

and as such is beyond the scope of this notice ; the sole object of which has 
been, to trace the early, and obscurer events of his life. 

It is well known that he fell in the conflict at Evesham, on the 4th of 
August, 1265 ; and the manner of his death was worthy of his reputation for 
prowess and courage. Upon being told that his eldest, and favourite, son 
Henry vi'as killed, he cried " by the arm of St. James, then it is time for me 
to die ;" and grasping his sword with both hands, rushed upon his assailants^ 
striking with such rapidity and vigour,' that a witness of the scene asserted, 
tliat had he had but eight followers like himself, he would have changed the 
fortune of the day. Wounded at last, by a blow from behind, he fell from 
his horse, and was instantly dispatched, and horribly mutilated by his 
victors.'^ According to the chronicler who describes this scene, the esquire 
who dealt the wound which brought him to the ground, was afterwards 
recommended by Prince Edward, to his sister, Margaret, Queen of Scotland,* 
when they met at Haddington previously to his departure for the Holy Land, 
and the circumstances of his death afford a curious illustration of the simple 
manners of the Scottish court. 

Queen Margaret was walking, after supper, by the banks of the Tay, at 
Kinclaven Castle, in Perthshire, attended by her maidens and esquires, and 
also by her confessor, who told the story to the Chronicler of Lanercost. 
The party sat down by the river-side, and the pompous esquire who prided 
himself upon having slain Montfort, descended to the water's edge to 
wash his hands, which in romping he had soUed with mud. As he stood 
leaning over the stream, a damsel came softly behind, and pushed him in. 
He took the joke in good part ; « what do I care," he exclaimed, " even 
though I were further out, I can swim." But while amid the laughter of the 
spectators he floundered about in the water, he suddenly found himself 
sinking, and shouted for assistance, which none present could render : his boy 
who was playing near at hand, hearing his master's cries ran up and plunged 

' " Tanto spiritus impetu, tanta vi canitiei ictus vibrabat." — Chron. de Lanercost,'76.

into the river to save him, but they were both drowned. " Thus the enemy 
of Simon, and servant of Sathan, who boasted he was the cause of the death 
of a valiant knight, perished in sight of all/' ' 

The career of the Earl of Leicester exhibits the singular picture of a man 
who commenced life an object of popxilar aversion, as a foreigner raised by 
the crown to high station and wealth ; and ended it in combating, ostensibly, 
for the liberties of the people. But as his unpopularity, in the first instance, 
was, in some degree unmerited, so the actions which endeared his memory to 
the commons of England, who remembered him as " the good Comte de 
Montfort," were far from being the result of his love of justice and liberty. 
An alien he certainly was by birth, but he represented in the female hne one 
of the most distinguished Anglo-Norman families ; to the title of which, 
borne by his father before him, he had an undoubted claim : the English, 
however, regarded him only as a stranger suddenly elevated to power and 
clandestinely allied to the sovereign. A woeful experience perhaps led them 
to anticipate, he might prove a worthy rival in oppression to Peter de Roches 
or Peter de Rivaux. 

Great mistakes arise both in writing and reading history, firom a confusion 
of terms. In the thirteenth century the phrase "people of England," 
signified the greater and lesser baronage, the clergy and the citizens of 
London. Thus when chroniclers state that the King invaded the liberties 
of the people, we must understand that the privileges of an aristocracy were 
threatened, and the franchises of a city disregarded. Such were the people 
who firamed and extorted the fallacious security of the Great Charter from 
John, and such the people whose liberties, as defined by that charter, the 
Earl of Leicester undertook, originally, to defend against Henry the Third. 
But when the power of the crown was annihilated, and the sovereign

himself a prisoner in the hands of his insurgent nobihty ; the union arising 
from a common interest in the struggle, which had thus far ensured their 
success, was no more. The several leaders regarded each other with distrust ; ' 
and Leicester, whom a strong current of prosperity had hurried on, from the 
simple vindication of acknowledged, but outraged rights, to that pitch of 
elevation which produced an ambitious uncertainty of purpose, was com- 
pelled to maintain his declining ascendancy among the barons, by creating a 
new party; which should be essentially his own.^ It was thus that he first 
breathed hfe into the real people of England, by tracing the outlines of 
popular representation, and from being the champion of an oligarchy 
attempted to become the dictator of a democracy. He failed in his scheme, 
only because the nation was awkward in the use of its new privilege. To 
say that Montfort was influenced to this course by any other than selfish 
motives,' or that he had a just idea of the power of the machine which he 
attempted to set in motion, would be to give him more credit than history 
and mankind have usually granted to political inventors, and to claim for him 
more transcendant abilities, and a mind more in advance of his age, than 
any action of his life can warrant us in believing him to have possessed. 

Popular as the Earl of Leicester was with the comilions of England, he 
found equal favour with the English church, which he freed from papal extor- 
tion, under which it had so long writhed. The chroniclers of his deeds were 
churchmen ; to them no epithet of praise seemed too extravaganf to be

him after the battle of Lewes. M. Paris, 854-5. 

' The first writs for the election of knights of the shire and burgesses were not issued until the end 
of the year 1264 and the beginning of 1265.

of Evesham will show that Montfort lost no time in securing to himself and family all that he possibly 
could. These documents have been used for the notes to the Household Roll ; and many of his acqui- 
sitions are noticed by Dugdale (Baronage, i. 751 et seq). 

* " Constans fuit in verbo, severus in vultu, maxime fidus in orationibus religiosorum, ecclesias- 
ticis magnam semper irapendens reverentiam ;'■ such is the language of the continuator of Matthew 
Paris ; see also the Annals of Waverley and the Chronicle of Lanercost.

applied to him, and their gratitude invested with the dignity of a martyr and 
a saint,' a man who perished under sentence of excommunication.^ 

Of the personal character of Simon de Montfort Kttle is known. He was 
eminent for prowess and courage in an age essentially martial ; and, like his 
father, remarkable for cruelty, amid the general ferocity of his time. His 
favourite oath has been recorded. He swore "by the arm of St. James" 
when he assented to the constitutions of Oxford,^ and the same exclamation 
escaped him as he rushed upon certain death at the battle of Evesham. 

By the Countess of Pembroke the Earl of Leicester had five sons ; Henry, 
Simon, Guy, Amauri and Richard ; and a daughter named Eleanor. 

Henry de Montfort, as already mentioned, was slain with his father at 
Evesham. He was the godson of King Henry ; and Prince Edward, who 
had passed his boyhood in his company, and was greatly attached to him, 
assisted in person at his funeral.* Simon, after the surrender of Kenilworth 
Castle in December, 1266, fled abroad, and was shortly followed by his 
brother Guy, who had been imprisoned in Dover Castle, but bribed his 
keepers and escaped.' The two brothers went to Tuscany ; and when Henry 
the son of Richard, King of the Romans, passed through Italy in the suite of 
Philip of France, on his return from the Holy Land, in I271, they met and 
assassinated him, while at mass in the church of St. Lawrence, at Viterbo.*

The baseness of this deed was aggravated by the circumstance of Simon 
having been indebted for his own life to the intercession of the King of the 
Romans, when he surrendered to the royal party, at Northampton, in 1266.' 
Of Amauri, Richard, Eleanor, and the Countess, some further account will be 
given hereafter. 

The curious Household RoU of the Countess of Leicester, which has called 
forth the preceding remarks, commences on Thursday, the 19th of February, 
1265. Before proceeding to examine such portions of it as exhibit ghmpses 
of the domestic economy of a person of rank in the thirteenth century, it is 
important to shew that the history of the few eventfid. months preceding the 
final struggle between Montfort and the royal party, derives some illustration 
from its contents. 

The consequence of the victory gained by the Earl of Leicester at Lewes, 
on the 14th of May, 1264, had been to place in his hands the persons of 

at Viterbo on the morrow of the Feast of St. Gregory, the day of the murder. The French King's 
account is as follows. "Ad vestrae serenitatis notitiam jocundiores libenter dirigeremus rumores, si 
nobis eos divina miseratio indulsisset. Sed nunc nova quffidam molesta et tristia vobis compellimur 
ixunciare, quae nos in crastino beati Gregorii existentes Viterbii, et in ecclesia Fratrum Minorum 
Viterbiencium missarum solempnia audientes ex relatibus quorundam fidedignorum didicimus ; vide- 
licet, quod Gwydo et Simon de Monteforti, milites, in karissimum consanguineum nostrum dominum 
Henricum, priraogenitum vestrum, dum, dictis die et hova, in quadam alia capella Viterbii ante suum 
hospitium esset, causa audiendi missam, seu orandi, manu irruerunt armata, et ibidem eum, insti^ante 
diabolo, occiderunt, quod vobis referimus non absque vehementi cordis nostri amaritudine et dolore." 
This document, as yet unpublished, is preserved in the contemporary Chronicle, in the MS. entitled 
" Liber de Antiquis Legibus," belonging to the Corporation of London. It is said they mistook 
Henry for Prince Edward (Chron. de Lanercost, p. 91). Matthew of Westminster agrees with the 
preceding narration, and relates that the event was commemorated by a painting on the wall of the 
church, executed at the expense of the citizens of Viterbo (p. 401). According to the same writer 

and Walsingham, the church was dedicated to St. Silvester, not St. Lawrence. (Ibid Walsin-'ham 

p. 44.) It should be obsenred, however, that M. Paris (p. 859), the Chronicle of Lanercost fp. 91), 
and Walsingham (p. 44), mention Guy only, as the perpetrator of the crime. 

1 M. Paris, 857. M. of Westminster tells us that Simon died in the same year, 1 27 1, in a castle near 
Sienna ; p. 401 . On the other hand, the Annals of Dunstable say that he and his brother Richard 
died in France : ii. 419. Guy married in Italy. -SeeDugdale.

Henry the Third and Prince Edward, of Richard, Bang of the Romans and 
his two sons, Henry and Edmund, the former of whom was called Henry of 
Germany. At the close of the year 1264, Prince Edward was imprisoned 
in Wallingford Castle.' Bearing in mind these facts we shall now proceed to 
trace the movements, and, as far as possible, the actions, of the Comitess 
during the year 1265. 

On the 19th of February we find her at Wallingford. On the 20th she 
moved to Reading, accompanied, among others, by her youngest son Richard 
de Montfort; and on the 22nd arrived at Odiham Castle,^ where she 
remained until the 1st of June, 

On the 17th of March, Prince Edward and Henry of Germany came 
from Wallingford to Odiham, in the company, or rather custody of Henry 
de Montfort.^ They seem to have repaired thither to await the coming of 
the Earl of Leicester, who was expected, and arrived on the 19th.^ Their 
retinue was considerable, for the number of horses in the castle stables was 
increased, by their coming, from 44 to 172; and after the Earl reached 
Odiham the number rose from 172 to 334.' 

The Earl stayed a fortnight with his wife ; leaving on Wednesday the 1st 
of April.^ 

' M. Paris. " pp. 3-4. ' p. 13. 

' These facts corroborate in some degree, the remark with which the continuator of Matthew Pans 
begins the year 1265. — " Comes autem Simon Regem Angliae, et Jilium ejus Edwardum eductum u 
IValingfordia, secum tam anno prseterito quam pKesenti circumduxit." His statement, however, 
that the King of the Romans was imprisoned in the Tower of London, and that Prince Edward and 
Henry of Germany were sent to Dover Castle, is entirely disproved by the roll ; which shews that 
the King was confined at Kenilworth ; and if Edward was at Dover, at all, in 12C5, it could only have 
been for a few days, as he was at Odiham till the 1st of April, and escaped from Hereford, on the 
28th of May. It is possible that Henry of Germany may have remained with the Countess for a 
short time after the departure of the Earl, as we find an item for the food of his hounds, besides 
payments to his huntsmen (pp. 15-32-36-40), but they left Odiham for Woodstock on the 30th of 
May.

Among the guests entertained by the Countess during her residence at 
Odiham, were the Abbot of Waverley,* who visited her on the 24th of 
February, and again on the 25th of April; some of the Nuns of Wintney, 
Master Nicholas a physician, the Prioress of Wintney, Robert de Brus, Sir 
Thomas Astley, a Warwickshire knight, the Prioress of Amesbury, the 
Countess of Oxford, and her son Amauri de Montfort, Treasurer of York, 
who came with 13 horses. On the 14th of April, the Countess fed eight 
hundred paupers, who consumed, inter alia, three quarters of bread and a tun 
of cider.^ 

At this time, and indeed for long afterwards, Richard, King of the Romans, 
was in confinement at KenUworth castle, whither the Countess sent to him, 
on the 30th of March, dates and spicery;' on the 3rd of May, her tailor 
purchased for him, at London,* twelve ells of scarlet cloth for his robes 
against the feast of Whitsuntide ; and six eUs and a half of rayed cloth, dyed 
in grain, for his son Edmund, for whom, also, were bought nine eUs of 
rayed cloth of Paris, to make a smnmer robe, tunic and cloak. The tailor 
purchased besides the above, four satin hoods for the King and his son ; 
one fur and a half, and a hood of miniver ; the King had the hood. These 
articles were dispatched to Kenilworth on the 9th of May.' 

Among the items of the Countess's miscellaneous expenditure, while at 
Odiham, may be noted a payment of 10.«. to the nvms of Wintney,' for 
working a cape for her chaplain ; and the purchase at London of laurel-oil.^ 
One of the damsels, perhaps Eleanor de Moutfort herself, being unwell, a 
barber is brought from Reading to bleed her.^ Master Roger, Prince 
Edward's barber, had his biU, or the arrears of his salary,- paid, amounting to 
13.S. \.d?

The movements of the Earl of Leicester during the early months of the 
year 1265, are very indistinctly related by the continuator of Matthew 
Paris,' We have already seen that he was at Odihara from the 19th of 
March to the 1st of April; from two payments to couriers sent to him with 
letters, it appears that the Countess believed him to be at Gloucester, on the 
30th of April, and at Hereford, on the 29th of May.'' It was in the evening 
of the 28th of May that Prince Edward escaped from his custody at Hereford.' 
On the 1st of June, by which time the news of that important event might 
have reached her, the Countess left Odiham, and travelled* during the night 
to Porchester, under the guidance of Dobbe her parker, or shepherd.' 

Her retreat to Porchester was probably induced by its being a stronger 
place, and, at the same time, garrisoned by her son Simon.^ The Countess 
could not but have foreseen that the escape of the Prince would produce 
important consequences, to meet which she endeavoured to make due 
preparation. 

At Porchester the Countess remained until the 12th of June, and then 
proceeded to Bramber Castle, by way of Chichester, where she dined. ' From 
thence to Wilmington on the 13th; to Winchelsea, through Battle,^ on 
Sunday the I4th,° and arrived at Dover on the following Monday." Her 
journey from Porchester to Dover seems to have been made in great haste. 
Many horses and carts were borrowed and hired for the carriage of her 
attendants and luggage. Among others the Countess of Arundel lent a 
chariot and five horses ; the Prior of Tichfield sent a hackney which was

ridden by a damsel, and a horse belonging to the Prior of Southwick carried 
Hicqe the Countess's tailor.' Her retinue altogether required 84 horses, 
that being the number provided for at Bramber,^ and besides this a portion 
of her baggage, or " harness/' was sent round by sea to Dover, the hire of 
the boat costing 'Js. Jd.^ 

At Dover the Countess, and her women, were lodged in the castle :* the 
rest of the household appears to have been quartered in the town. She was 
now in a secure position. Her son Henry was constable of Dover, and 
Warden of the Cinque Ports ;' and although at this time he was absent from 
his charge, the castle was garrisoned by the Leicester faction. She had the 
command of the sea, and, should the course of events require it, could escape 
from the country with speed and safety. In her journey along the coast the 
Countess had not omitted to endeavour to secure the fidelity of the Cinque 
Ports. During her short stay at Winchelsea, on Sunday the 14th, she gave 
a dinner to the Burgesses, at which two oxen and thirteen sheep were eaten, 
besides a due proportion of other fare.' Some idea may be formed of the 
number of the guests, when it is found that provision was made for 195 
horses ; the number in her own train being only 84 ; the other 111 appear 
to have belonged to the retinue of her son Simon, whom she met at Wil- 
mington and who escorted her from thence to Dover. 

On Wednesday, the 1 7th of June, she entertained the Burgesses of 
Sandwich ■/ and on the next Sunday sent wine to the ambassadors of the 
King of France,^ Sir Drogo de Noyon and Friar Boniface ; and lodged and 
rewarded two monks of Hereford, who had, probably, brought the ambassa- 
dors from that town whither it is beheved they had been to see the Earl.' 

By the latter end of June the aspect of the Earl of Leicester's affairs 
became very serious. Prince Edward, having raised a large army, had over-

ninthe counties of Hereford, Worcester, Salop and Chester; taken the town 
of Gloucester by assault ; and was preparing to effect a junction with the 
forces led by the Earl of Gloucester.' Before he could engage their united 
armies the Earl required to be reinforced : and, on the 24th of June, Simon 
de Montfort, jun., marched from Porchester ^ to Tunbridge ' on his way to 
join his father, whom, it appears probable, he had agreed to meet at Kenil- 
worth Castle. On this emergency the household of the Countess suppUed 
him with nine horses, four of which belonged respectively, to her cook, clerk, 
butler, and farrier.* The roll shews that Simon passed through London,' on 
his road to Warwickshire, with the double object, perhaps, of confirming the 
citizens in their rebellion, and of gathering recruits among them ; on the 8th 
of July the Countess sent Sir Fulk Constable and others who had recently 
joined her at Dover, together with Master WilUam an engineer, to join him 
at the capital. They received 20s. for their expenses.* 

It is well known that Leicester never received this expected aid. Edward, 
who had notice of their march to KenUworth, joined the Earl of Gloucester ; 
left Worcester, on the evening of the 1st or 2nd of August, and surprising 
them while asleep in their camp without the walls of the castle, slew a great 
number, and captured the earl of Oxford, with other persons of note. Simon 
with the remnant of his followers barely succeeded in retreating into the 
fortress.^ From KenUworth the Prince returned to Worcester; and the 
position he subsequently occupied with his allies, effectually prevented the 
Earl from joining his son, and the son from marching to the assistance of his 
father. Under this disadvantage Leicester fought the battle of Evesham, on 
the 4th of August.

We now return to the Countess, at Dover. On Sunday, the 12th of July, 
some of the Burgesses of Sandwich and Winchelsea dined with her.' The 
men of the latter place were again entertained on the 30th. 

On the 1st of August, she sent a messenger to the Earl, and paid the 
freight of a ship which brought an engine, probably, a mangonel, firom 
Pevensey to Dover j^ a sign that she was providing for the defence of the 
place. On the 12th, Richard de Montfort came by sea from Winchelsea, in 
a ship with a crew of about one hundred sailors, for which 100s. were paid.^ 

We now meet with items which point to the end of this eventful story. 
On the 15 th of August, a letter is brought to the Countess from Prince 
Edward ;* it would be assuming too much to suppose it was the first notifi- 
cation she received of her husband's fate ; the news must have reached Dover 
much sooner through those who escaped the slaughter of the fight.' How- 
ever, on the 19th of August, she makes an offering of 12s. 9d. for the repose 
of his soul,^ and on the 3d of September, a further sum of 7*-'' is given for 
the same object. There is also a payment, without a precise date, for 12 eUs 
of black say for a robe and nether garments for Richard de Montfort.^ 

The daily account of the household expenditure ends on the 29th of 
August,' at which time the Countess seems to have experienced a scarcity of 
provisions at Dover, as during the last week certain oxen and sheep were 
procured by foraging.'" 

The misceUarieous expenditure, however, yields glimpses of her proceed- 
ings until the end of September ; and aifords a remarkable confirmation of 
the general truth of the fact mentioned in Henry's letter to the King of

France, which is given in the Appendix, No. III.,' viz. that the Countess 
sent her sons Amauri and Richard to France with a large sum of money, 
1 1 ,000 marks. We have no mention of Amauri, but on the 13th of Septem- 
ber, there are purchases of shoes of cow-hide, russet boots, and other articles 
of dress for Richard de Montfort; and on the I8th of September, 26s. 8d. 
were paid for his passage to Gravelines.^ His destination was Bigorre; 
whither he was preceded by Peter de ViQeneuve and Amald de St. Crist who 
had not long before arrived in England,* probably with letters to the Coun- 
tess, from her kinsman Eskivat,^ Count of that district of France. 

On the 29th of August, the Countess discharged Master William the 
engineer," a circumstance which leads to the beUef, that she had abandoned 
all notion of defending Dover Castle : but from messengers being sent to 
Kenilworth on the 2nd of September^ and 1 st of October^ it may be pre- 
sumed she took a great interest in the preservation of that stronghold, which 
was now the rallying point of the scattered adherents of her late husband. 
When the garrison were summoned to surrender to the King in the early 
part of the year, 12G6, they repUed they had received the custody of the 
castle from the Countess of Leicester, " lately driven from the kingdom, 
and that they would not treat with any living person for the surrender of it, 
excepting the Countess herself were present."* Accordingly they defended 
the place for six months, when, their stock of provisions being exhausted, 
they cfvpitulated, on the 21st of December.' 

The latest date mentioned in the roU is the 1st of October, in which month 
it is believed the Countess of Leicester withdrew from England. The con- 
tinuator of Matthew Paris says she left the country soon after the battle of 
Evesham.'"

Such are the remarkable points in the history of the Countess of Leicester 
and her family, during the year 1265, as developed by her Household Roll. 
Much minuter detail is necessarily left to be gleaned by the curious anti- 
quary; as an attempt to weave the less important facts into a narrative 
form, would have extended this notice beyond all reasonable limits. 

" After leaving England, the Countess took up her residence in the Domin- 
ican convent at Montargis, which had been founded by one of her husband's 
sisters.' In 1266 St. Louis of France attempted to effect either a reconciliation 
between Eleanor and her brother Henry, or to procure the restitution of her 
confiscated estates. Henry's reply is printed in the Appendix,^ after advert- 
ing in strong language to the injuries he had suffered from the Earl of 
Leicester and his sons, as well as from the Countess, he agrees to abide by 
any decision, which, after due consideration of the case, Louis might arrive 
at. It does not appear that any arrangement was made during the short 
time that Henry the Third survived his sister's banishment. However in 
1273, her nephew Edward the First, restored the lands which she had held 
in dower from the Earl of Pembroke, her first husband.^ She died in 
1274.^ 

A.mauri de Montfort who was deprived of his ofiice of Treasurer of York 
three days after the battle of Evesham,* accompanied his mother to France, 
together with his sister Eleanor, who had been contracted, during her father's 
life time, to Llewellyn, Prince of Wales.^ In 1276 she embarked under the 
protection of Amauri to join her intended husband, but was captured near 



tenus reversura." Her native country was England, for " petiit," therefore we should read reliquit.

the Scilly Islands,' by four ships belonging to the port of Bristol.* Their 
captors sent them to Edward, who placed Eleanor in the family of his Queen, 
and imprisoned Amauri, first at Corfe, and afterwards at Sherborne Castle.' 

The King's motive for treating him thus severely was that he believed him 
to have been an accomphce of his brothers Guy and Simon in the murder 
of Henry of Germany.'' There is every reason to believe that Amauri was 
in Italy about that time, as the Bishop of Chichester on his return from 
Rome (whither he had been sent by the Legate to answer to the Pope for 
his adherence to the Earl of Leicester) received him into his train with the 
intention of taking him to England. Edward was so much irritated at this, 
that he immediately took possession of the Bishop's barony and ordered an 
armed galley to be on the look out to capture them in crossing the 
channel." They seem however to have got scent of the King's intention, and 
therefore stopped short at Paris, upon which Edward dispatched an emissary 
thither for the purpose of luring them into his hands, a plan which failed of 
success.' 

In 1279 Edward married Eleanor to Llewellyn with great pomp, paying the 
expenses of the ceremony.'' Amauri was set at liberty in 1280,'* at the inter- 
cession of Pope Martin IV., or, according to others, of Peckham, Archbishop 
of Canterbury. He was one of the executors of his mother's will, some pro- 
ceedings respecting which are noticed in the Appendix.' After his liberation 
he repaired to Rome, obtained a remission of his vows as an ecclesiastic,'" and

was afterwards knighted. It has been ahready mentioned that Richard de 
Montfort went to Bigorrej nothing certain is known of his after career. ^ 

We have nOw to consider the household roU of the Countess of Leicester 
in relation to the domestic economy of her age ; in doing this it will be 
desirable to throw together some general observations upon the private life 
of the English during the thirteenth century. 

The first item which occurs in the daily accounts of provisions consumed 
in the family is bread. It is apprehended, however, that grain or flour was 
designated by the general term "panis." We ^cidpanis taken out of store, 
purchased, or sent by the reeves of the Countess's manors ; and the quantity 
is measured by the quarter or bushel. The words "panis defroille," which 
frequently occur, probably signified ground corn ; that is supposing "froille" 
to be a derivative of the old French \&Tax, froyer, to break or crush." 

It would appear that bread of difiierent degrees of fineness was used ; thus 
there is " bread purchased for the Countess,"^ and " bread for the kitchen." 
Loaves or cakes made of bolted flour, and called " boletella," are twice men- 
tioned,'' as well as " gastelli," cakes or wastels, perhaps biscuits ; ' on one 
occasion half a quarter of flour is set down for pastry.* It is reasonable 
to infer that the bread generally used in the family was made of the 
grain called mystelon, a term yet in use at the beginning of the sixteenth

with corn ' it may be concluded that the servants fared no worse ; at any 
rate there is no distinct notice of bread made of barley, oats, or the more 
inferior grain which were commonly used in France and other countries.^ It 
is not clear that their bread was leavened with yeast as that article occurs but 
once,' and then in connection with malt. 

The price of the quarter of wheat or rye, varied from 5s. to 5s. Sd. ; of 
oats from 2s. to 2s. 4d.;* twenty-five quarters however were bought at Sand- 
wich, at Is. lOd,^ When grain was brought from the Countess's manors, 
some of the prices were rather below the average. The bailiff of Chalton 
was allowed 5s. the quarter for wheat, 4s. for barley, and 2s. 4d. for oats; " 
the bailiff of Brabome had 4s. 4«?. for wheat, and Is. 3d. for oats.' 

The item which follows bread is wine, of which only two sorts are named 
in the early part of the roll, red and white. The wines drank in England 
during the thirteenth century came chiefly from Guienne ; others were from 
the vineyards of Anjou, Aucerne and Poitou. Gascon wine is not specially 
mentioned until towards the end of the document, in August,^ when that, 
and the wine called Bastard became the general drink of the family. The 
term Bastard was given to all mixed ' and sweetened wines ; an English 
writer, however, who lived in the early part of the fifteenth century, reckons 
Bastard among those wines which were naturally sweet, and, therefore, 
unwholesome.'" It is called sweet wine in the roll. Little information is

given as to the price of wine : we find that the sum of 9s. 2d. was paid for 
twenty-two gallons,' and that two tuns cost 31. 6s. 8d.^ 

Turning from wine to beer, it may be remarked that in the thirteenth 
century the English had no certain principle as to the grain best suited foi* 
brewing. The roll shews that beer was made indiscriminately of barley, 
wheat, and bats, and sometimes of a mixture of all.' As the hop was not 
used we may conjecture that the produce of their brewing was rather insipid 
and not calculated for long keeping : it was drank as soon as made. To 
remove the mawkish flatness of such beer it was customary to flavour it with 
spices and other strong ingredients ; long pepper continued to be used for 
this purpose some time after the introduction of hops.* The period at which 
the last-named plant became an ingredient of EngUsh beer is not precisely 
known. It was cultivated from a very early date in Flanders and Belgium, 
where it was both employed in brewing, and eaten in salads ; ' and from those 
countries it was imported into England while the produce of our own hop- 
grounds was inconsiderable. It would appear, however, that hops were 
used in this country for brewing, in the beginning of the fifteenth century, 
as Gilbert Kymer in his " Dietary," pronounces beer brewed from barley, 
well hopped {bene lupulata,) of middling strength, thin and clear, well fined, 
well boiled, and neither too new nor too old, to be a sound and wholesome 
beverage.^ It is pretty certain, nevertheless, that in his time the hop was 
not grown in England.''

In ancient days brewing was almost solely managed by women,' and till 
the close of the fifteenth century the greater part of the beer houses in Lon- 
don were kept by females who brewed what they sold. It wiU be observed 
that the Countess had employed a breweress of Banbury, whom she dis- 
charged on 2nd of March, paying 5s. for her wages and Is. 6d. for her 
expenses homewards.^ On another occasion the brewing was performed at 
the Maison Dieu at Dover, the brethren or sisters of which, hke the gene- 
rality of monastic folk, were probably skilled in the art, through long prac- 
tice in brewing for themselves. They had the draflf for their pains.^ 

The quantity of beer consumed in the family was very great. On the 
18th of April, they brewed five quarters of barley, and four of oats : on the 
25th of the same month they purchased 188 gallons of beer, and on the 
29th brewed again, seven quarters of barley and two of oats being used. 

The prices of the different kinds of malt are not distinctly given. Two 
quarters of wheat-malt, eight quarters, two bushels of barley-malt, and four 
quarters of oat-malt cost 43*. d^d.^ At Odiham the sum of 2s. 3d. was 
paid for malting twenty-seven quarters of wheat.' The cost of beer when 
purchased varied, from something less than a halfpenny, to three farthings 
per gallon. 



Flemings, and forgerie dailie practised in this kind of ware, gave us occasion to plant them here at 
home : so that now we may spare and send manie ouer vnto them." He wrote in the middle of the 
xvith century. The brewer of Henry VIII. in the beginning of whose reign, according to Fuller, 
they were first generally introduced (Worthies, i. 337), was enjoined not to put hops or brimstone 
into the king's ale. Archicologia, vol. iii. p. 157.

wages two shillings six pence, with meat and drinke, and the wearing of my vessell at twentie

Before quitting the subject of fluids it may be noted that cider is men- 
tioned once, but in such a manner as to convey the impression that it was 
not in very great estimation ; the Countess gave one tun among eight hun- 
dred paupers.' The little cider used at this period was, probably, imported 
from Normandy. 

As the family consumed so much wine and beer it is not probable that 
they dranls any very considerable quantity of water. That necessary article, 
however, was sometimes purchased for general purposes,^ and, when not 
actually bought, the necessity of bearing it from a distance, led to a compa- 
ratively large expenditure.^ 

Milk, of which a good deal was used daily, ought, perhaps, to be con- 
sidered under another head, but for the sake of convenience it is here 
included among other hquids. The minuteness of these details may be 
shghtly relieved by giving Master Gilbert K}Tner's estimate of the compara- 
tive value of the several varieties of it : " lac vero mulierum est optimum 
genus lactis, deinde azinarum, deinde caprinum, deinde cameUinum, deinde 
equarum, deinde vaccinum, de hinc ovinum."* Although cow's milk stands 
fifth in his list we may safely assert that it satisfied our ancestors as well in 
the thirteenth as in the fifteenth century. Cream and butter were occa- 
sionally purchased, but not in very large quantities.' It is possible that both 
were scarce. Cheese is mentioned rather frequently, but it seems to have 
been oftener cooked than eaten raw ; the favourite method of preparing it for

doubting the cleanliness of the Countess, when it is seen that her washing bill from Christmas to the 
end of May amounted to 15d. only (p. 41.). It should be observed, however that, as some of her 
under garments were made of prepared sheepskin, they were, probably, cleansed in another way.

table was in the shape of tarts ; " casd pro tartia."^ Kymer believed that 
cheese taken after dinner acted, " tamquam ciborum oppressor,'^ but adds 
this salutary caution ; " modicum tamen quia durae est digestionis, et melan- 
coliam multiplicat."^ A poise of cheeses contained sixteen, and cost 8*.,^ but 
we have no knowledge of the precise weight of the poise. 

The reader of the roll wiU not fail to observe the strictness with which 
Lent was observed, as well as the general abstinence from flesh meat on 
Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, a subject which naturally leads to some 
enquiry respecting the fish most in repute during the century to which the 
document belongs. 

The distinguishing peculiarity not only of Enghsh but of European taste 
in food, during the middle ages, was a predilection for strong, and, in some 
cases, for coarse flavours. To what other cause can we ascribe the appear- 
ance of the flesh of the whale, grampus, porpoise, sea-calf, sea-wolf and other 
such fish, at the tables of sovereigns and people of rank, by whom they 
were considered delicacies ? 

The practice of eating the whale and grampus may be traced, in England, 
to the Saxon sera. In the law made by King Ethelred, which regulated the 
tolls to be levied at Billingsgate, the men of Rouen who came " cum vino 
vel craspice," are mentioned; under the term " craspiscis," were com- 
prised the whale and other blubber fish. As the twentieth piece of the fish 
was to be exacted for toll, we may infer that it was imported either dried or 
salted.'' 

The first use of these fish has been attributed to that remote period when 

' Brie cheeses were known in England during this century. In 1278 Edward the First sent his 
tailor, Adinett, to Paris, to make various purchases ; inter alia, he bought " of Thomas le Gaunter 
one hundred cheeses of Brie, for the King and Queen, price 35s." Rot. Miscell., in Tnrr. Lond.,

the herring and cod were unknown. However this may have been it is cer- 
tain that the custom continued long after the latter and better fish became 
plentiful and cheap. The salted herrings of Yarmouth were in great repute 
during the twelfth century ; yet, we see that choice morsels of whale were 
eaten, by way of variety, during Lent, and other fasting times, at a period 
when, in addition to herrings, salted cod, and hake or Poor John, had been 
long in general esteem as Lenten food. Indeed it is not quite certain that 
these gross fish were entirely out of vogue in the fifteenth century ; for Kymer 
expressly denounces the flesh of the whale, sea-calf, cuttle-fish, &c. as highly 
prejudicial to health.' So late as the year 1531, the porpoise is enumerated 
among the fish to be served at the table of Henry the Eighth ; and if one 
fish should be more than a horse could bear, due allowance was to be made 
to the purveyor for the expense of carriage.^ 

Some notion may be formed of the quantity of whale, &c. which was 
eaten in England during the thirteenth century, when we find Henry the 
Third, in Lent 1246, ordering the Sheriffs of London to purchase for him, 
in the city, 100 pieces of the best whale, and two porpoises -.^ the roll informs 
us that two hundred pieces, or two cwt., were bought for the Countess of 
Leicester and tlie King of the Romans, previously to Palm Stinday, 1265,* 
besides which grampus or porpoise, and sea-wolves, are mentioned several 
times during Lent.' It is obvious that the whale fishery during these times

^ Archseologia, vol. iii., p. 157. Two methods of dressing porpoise are described in a cookery book 
of the fifteenth century, as follows : — " Purmenty wyth Purpaysse. — Make thin ffurmenty in the 
maner as I sayd before, save temper it up wyth almaunden mylke, and sugre, and saffroun. Than

must have been far more extensive than is supposed, to have furnished the 
European markets with the requisite quantity of fish. It is beheved that 
England was supplied from Normandy; the whale fishery was early, and 
long, a soiu'ce of wealth to the towns on the coast of that province.^ 

In so large a fish some parts, were, of course, more prized than others ; 
the tongue and a portion of the tail were esteemed dehcacies ; and, if from 
the French fashion of cooking it, we may guess at the English mode, the 
flesh was either boiled with peas or roasted.^ 

It seems from the following anecdote that, during Lent, certain fish were 
eaten on particular days, and that the sea-wolf, the modem name of which 
is not very clear,' was not so large but that it might be served up whole. 
It chanced that Richard de Clare, Earl of Gloucester, paid a visit to Robert 
Grost^te, Bishop of Lincoln, who received him with great honour, and com- 
manded his seneschal to prepare a dinner of more than usual costhness. 
At table the Earl was seated at the right hand of his host, who ordered the 
attendants to serve him to every thing first. It was one of those fish days 
when it was customary to eat choice sea wolves, and the servants thinking to 
please their master placed a large fish before the Bishop and a small one 
before the Earl: Grost^te, however, looked angrily at the seneschal, and 
said, " take that fish away from me, or give one of equal size to the Earl ;" 
upon this the servants asserted they could not find another so large ; " then," 
said the Bishop, " set aside the whole of this for alms, and give me a smaller 
one like the rest." This proceeding greatly surprised the Earl of Gloucester, 
who, when the repast was over, could not reiirain from asking the Bishop, 
how he, a man of humble birth, had acquired so much courtesy.*

The staple article of food during Lent in the household of the Countess, 
was salted herring ; hundreds of which were consumed daily.' Besides this, 
however, the list of fish eaten by them at different seasons of the year is 
far from inconsiderable. We find the names of conger, ling, cod, both fresh 
and salted, hake, sturgeon, mackerel, stockfish, mullets, bar, flolmders, 
salmon, plaice, sea-breams, soles and dories; among sheU-fish may be 
enumerated oysters, weUcs, crabs, and shrimps ; and of fresh-water varieties 
the dart, eels, lampreys,^ and cray-fish. 

Of these several sorts, besides the herring, cod, and hake, were either 
dried or salted for storing ; such 'as the mullet, mackerel and sturgeon.* 
Pickled salmon is not named in the roU, although in general demand at the 
time, as well as what was called " powdered salmon ;'' the fish being merely 
sprinkled with dry salt. In the document already quoted on the subject of 
whale, the sheriffs are directed to send the King twelve powdered salmon, 
and four salmon in bread.* It was a very common. practice to bake or boil 
fish in paste, either for immediate use, or for the convenience of preser- 
vation and transport to a distance ; but this method of cooking was more 
frequently applied to fresh-water species, and in particular, to the bream and 
pike or lucy.° The roU affords a sUght clue to the manner of performing 



• In 1238 the Flemish fishermen were so much Eilarmed by the news of the invasion of Hungary 
by the army of Okta'i, the son and successor of Genghiz Khan, that they would not venture over to 
Yarmouth, as was their annual custom. Their absence caused such a glut in the English market, 
that four or five hundred of the best herrings sold for a shilling. M. Paris, 398. 

2 The best English lampreys were taken in the Severn. Those of Nantes, however, were con- 
sidered superior. In 1231 a ship freighted with these fish, for the use of Henry the Third, was 
wrecked near Freshwater, in the Isle of Wight ; whereupon the bailiffs of the Island were ordered to 
impanel a jury, to enquire what persons had found the said lampreys " which Osbert Percehaye 
brought with him from Nantes," and to cause them to be given up without delay. Kot. Claus., 15

the operation, as eggs were required to put two dories in paste;' but the 
way in which they were applied must be left to the learned in cookery to 
explain." 

The Earl of Leicester seems to have been rather choice in reference to 
fresh-water fish ; upon his arrival at Odiham, a man was dispatched to the 
Bishop of Winchester's ponds at Farnham, where with several assistants he 
continued to fish, for eleven days.^ Some also, perhaps eels, was brought 
from Staines.* 

As fennel is mentioned,' we may infer that it was already customary to 
serve it with fish ; a fashion said to have been borrowed from the Florentines. 
Kymer recommended that all fish should be dressed with fennel, mint, and 
parsley.* He remarks also, that in his time some persons considered salmon 
and trout unwholesome food, on account of the redness of their flesh, for 
which, in his own opinion, they were all the better.'

The roll presents nothing worthy of remark on the subject of animal-food. 
We find the usual fare of beef, mutton, veal and pork : with the occasional 
variety of kid's flesh, and venison. The prices of animals vary considerably ; 
two oxen, four sheep and three calves were bought for 22s. lOd. ; m one 
instance two calves cost \s. 6d., in another a sheep and a calf were worth 
3s. 3c?.' Kids came either out of the stores of the different castles, or from the 
Countess's manors. Although venison is mentioned more frequently to- 
wards what we should call the proper season, it was eaten also in the spring. 
On Sunday the 10th of May there is an item of 6d., expended upon the 
dogs, in hunting a stag.^ 

Of the feathered tribe, capons, fowls and geese^ are named, but the general 
term " pullagium," may have comprehended other species. There is no 
distinct mention, however, of swans, herons, peacocks, bitterns and other 
strong flavoured birds so much in favour at the time. We find a payment 
to a boy, for seeking a crane in a well,* and it is possible that, if caught, the 
unfortunate bird may have been devoured. 

Eggs seem to have been an important item in the culinary processes of 
the thirteenth century. The price of them varied from 3|«?^ to Ad^. per 
hundred. In one instance they were paid as rent.^ On Easter Sunday 
upwards of twelve hundred were purchased ;^ of which the greater part were, 
probably, stained and given away as Pasque eggs. 

It cannot fail to be remarked, in perusing the roU, that very few esculent 
plants are mentioned. Dried peas and beans, parsley, fennel, onions, green

peas and new beans,' are the only species named. Pot-herbs of which the 
names are not specified, but which served eleven days, cost 6d.^ If any 
other vegetables were in general use at the time, they were, perhaps, com- 
prised under the term " potagium."^ There is, however, much uncertainty 
upon the subject of the cultivation of vegetables, in this country, during the 
thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. Cresses, endive, lettuce, beets, par- 
snips, carrots, cabbages, leeks, radishes, and cardoons were grown in France 
during the reign of Charlemagne ;'' but it is doubtful whether many of these 
varieties had penetrated into England at an early period. The most skilful 
horticulturists of the middle ages were ecclesiastics, and it is possible that 
in the gardens of monasteries many vegetables were reared which were not 
in common use among the laity .^ Even in the fifteenth century the general 
produce of the English kitchen garden was contemptible when compared 
with that of the Low Countries, France and Italy. Gilbert Kymer can enu- 
merate only, besides a few wild and forgotten sorts, cabbage, lettuce, spinach, 
beetroot, trefoil, bugloss, borage, celery, purslane, fennel, smallage, thyme 
hyssop, parsley, mint, a species of turnip, and small whi te onions. Accord- 
ing to him, all these plants were boiled with meat. He observes also that 
some were eaten raw, in spring and summer, with olive oil and spices, but 
questions the propriety of the custom.^ This is, perhaps, the earUest notice 
extant of the use of salads, in England. 

V Although the information furnished by the roll on the subject of vegetables 
is very scanty, it is still more meagre in relation to fruit. The only kinds 
named are apples and pears : three hundred of the latter were purchased at 
Canterbury ;' probably from the gardens of the monks. It is believed, how-

season of 1257, observes that "apples were scarce, and pears scarcer, while 
quinces, vegetables, cherries, plums and all shell-fruits were entirely de- 
stroyed,'" These shell-fruits were probably the common hazel-nut, walnuts, 
and perhaps chestnuts; in 1256 the Sheriffs of London were ordered to 
buy two thousand chestnuts for the King's use.^ In the Wardrobe Book 
of the 14th of Edward the First before quoted, we find the bill of Nicholas, 
the royal fruiterer ; in which the only fruits mentioned are pears, apples, 
quinces, medlars and nuts. The supply of these^ from Whitsuntide to No- 
vember, cost 21/. 14s. 1^^.' 'i;his apparent scarcity of indigenous fruits 
naturally leads to the enquiry, what foreign kinds besides those included 
in the term spicery, such as almonds, dates figs and raisins, were imported 
into England in this and the following century ? In the time of John and 
of Henry the Third, RocheUe was celebrated for its pears and conger eels ; 
the sheriffs of London purchased a hundred of the former, for Henry, 
in 1223.* In the 18th of Edward the First, a large Spanish ship came to 
Portsmouth ; out of the cargo of which the Queen bought one frail of 
Seville figs, one frail of raisins or grapes, one bale of dates, two hun- 
dred and thirty pomegranates, fifteen citrons and seven oeanges.' The 
last item is important, as Le Grand d'Aussy could not trace the orange in 
France to an earlier date than 1333 ;" here we find it known in England 
in 1290 ; and it is probable that this was not its first appearance. The 
marriage of Edward with Eleanor of Castile naturally led to a greater 
intercourse with Spain, and, consequently, to the introduction of other 
articles of Spanish produce than the leather of Cordova, olive-oil and rice, 
which had previously been the principal imports from that fertile country, 
through the medium of the merchants of Bayonne and Bordeaux. It is to 
be regretted that the series of Wardrobe Books is incomplete, as much addi- 
tional information on this point might have "been derived from them. At all 
events it appears certain that Europe is indebted to the Arab conquerors of

Spain for the introduction of the orange, and not to the Portuguese who are 
said to have brought it from China. 

An English dessert in the thirteenth century, must, it is clear, have been 
composed chiefly of dried and preserved fruits ; dates, figs, apples, pears, 
nuts, and the still common dish of almonds and raisins.' A curious anecdote 
related of Robert de Coquina, Bishop of Durham, who died in 1284, shews 
that it was customary to blanch the almond for table. He kept* two female 
apes, one older than the other. On a certain day, after dinner, feeling more 
inclined to be diverted than to eat, he ordered a silver dish which stood 
before him, filled with blanched almohds, to be placed on the floor beside the 
younger animal, the elder being kept back from it. The favoured ape, 
fearing she might be robbed by her companion, hastily crammed all the 
fruit into her left jaw ; and was making off with the spoU, when the other, 
being set loose, seized her by the right cheek, and in spite of all resistance, 
forced open her mouth, and deliberately eat every almond, to the great 
amusement of the Bishop and his company.^ 

Owing to the partiality of the ancient English for strong and savoury 
flavours, already adverted to, a great variety of spices were used in the compo- 
sition of sauces and other branches of cookery ; they, likewise, entered largely 
into the manufacture of those costly drinks and cordials so much in fashion 
during the middle ages. The natural flavour and strength of wine did not 
suSice ; it was sometimes sweetened with honey,"* often burnt, and more

frequently thickened by boiling, with the addition of the most stimulating 
aromatics. 

All dried fruits as well as spices, properly so called, were anciently com- 
prised under the general term spicery. The dealers in these rare commodities 
were styled Spiders, and as their trade was carried on with those countries 
of the East, which, in addition to the production of spices, were more skilled 
in manufactures than the nations of Europe, they imported not only the 
aromatics, but, also, the rich silks, fine linens, baudekins and gold-stuffs of 
Asia. It was this branch of commerce which enriched the Basings, Hardels, 
Rokesleys and Gisorses, those haughty merchants and barons of London, in 
the thirteenth century, who, said Henry the Third, in a fit of spleen, would . 
have purchased the treasures of Octavian, had they been offered for sale.' 

The spices named in the roU are aniseed, cinnamon, cloves, galingal, ginger, 
and pepper J besides these cubebs, mace, and grain of paradise, or grain de 
Paris, although not specified, were in general use at the time. Among spices 
were included rice, saffron, and sugar. 

The history and antiquity of the spice trade has been so often and so ably 
related, that, in this place, it will be sufficient to observe that Alexandria 
, was the mart from which Europe was supplied in early times, through the 
agency of the merchants of France and Italy .^ It may be doubted, however, 
whether, as has been frequently asserted, aU the rice and sugar used in 
Europe during the twelfth, thirteenth, and fourteenth centuries came from 
that place. That some kinds of sugar did, is certain; but the sugar of 
Alexandria seems to have been a great rarity in England during the reign of 
Henry the Third. In 1226 the King sent a writ to the mayor and burgesses 
of Winchester, directing them to forward to him at Marlborough, three

= It was not until after the Crusades that spices became generally diffused in Europe. Much 
valuable information upon this subject will be found in the learned essay, by M. de Guignes, " Sur

tions et Belles-Lettres, tome 37, p. 467. m. 



pounds of choice sugar of Alexandria, if so much could be found in the city 
of Winchester, and, if it could not be had, they were to send as many pounds 
of sugar of Buza. They were to send also one pound of rosy sugar, and one 
pound of violet-coloured sugar, three ounces of violets, and one ounce of 
mastic' Now at the period in question Winchester was almost as great an 
emporium for merchandise of every description as London ; a circumstance 
partly the result of the frequent presence of the court in that venerable town, 
but, chiefly, of the great fair of St, Giles's Hill, to which traders from all 
parts were accustomed to repair; and from which also the merchants of 
London drew a portion of their supplies. The place called Buza cannot be 
readily identified ; it was, probably, some Eastern city celebrated for the 
manufacture of sugar ; but it is believed that the coloured sugars referred to 
by the King were made in Europe. The cane had been cultivated, from a 
very remote date, in Sicily, and is said indeed to be indigenous in that island ; 
we have every reason to believe that the sugar commonly used in England 
in early times was made by the Italians.* 

The invention of the art of refining sugar has been ascribed to the Arabs. 
It is not known when the process was first employed in Europe. Le Grand 
d'Aussy could not cite an earlier mention of white sugar, than that which he 
found in the Household Account of Humbert, Dauphin de Viennois, for the 
year 1333;' the Leicester Roll proves that it was used in England in 1265. 
On page 71 will be found an item for fourteen pounds of sugar, which cost 
28s. ; the scribe had originally written that this sugar was purchased to make 
"white powder," — " ad album pulverem •" these words, however, he struck 
out, and it will be seen that the item immediately following is, "for iiij. 
pounds of white powder, 8s." If sugar were never purchased to make 
white powder, he would not have committed this error in writing his 
account, and when to this presumptive evidence we add the fact that white 
powder bore the same price as sugar, viz. 2s. the pound, no other conclusion

can be drawn than that it was white sugar pounded. To' this we may add 
that in 1256 Henry the Third ordered the Sheriffs of London to send 
" four loaves of sugar" to Woodstock, where in company with the King and 
Queen of Scotland he celebrated the feast of the Assumption.* 

No doubt a considerable quantity of rice was imported from the east, 
during the middle ages ; but it may be observed that the Arabs had intro- 
duced the cultivation of it into Spain, where it is still grown in the proAance 
of Valencia ; and that, from Spain, the plant was at an early period, trans- 
ported to Italy.*

^ It must not be supposed from the low prices of some of these articles that they were generally 
used in the country; the arrival of a ship laden with spices was an event of such importance, and 
perhaps rarity, that the King usually hastened to satisfy his wants before the cargo was landed. 
Thus in the 10th of Henry the Third, the bailiffs of Sandwich were commanded to detain, upon their 
coming to port, two great ships laden with spices and precious merchandises, which were expected 
from Bayonne; and not to allow any thing to be sold until the King had had his choice of their 
contents. Claus. 10 Hen. 3, m. 3.

We find occasional items for the purchase of table Hnen, plates, dishes, 
and drinking cups : and there are two payments for making cases for the 
Countess's knives, probably those used at meals. 

The roU affords little information respecting dress, and that little is not 
remarkable for novelty. Woollen cloths were long the chief material of male 
and female attire. When new the nap was generally very long ; and after 
being worn for some time it was customary to have it shorn ; indeed this 
process was repeated as long as the stuff would bear it. Thus we find the 
Countess sending Hicqe, the tailor, to London, to get her robes re-shom. 

Among the materials for dress mentioned, are linen, sindon, which has 
been variously interpreted to mean satin or very fine linen ; scarlet and rayed 
or striped cloths, of Flemish,' French or Italian make ; pers, or blue cloth, 
for the manufacture of which Provence was famous ; " russet, say or serge, 
and blanchet or blanket, a name which, it is beheved, was then given to 
flannel. The furs named are squirrel and miniver. For some trifling par- 
ticulars respecting hose, boots, and shoes the reader is referred to the docu- 
ment itself. 

Two passages in the roll, possessing literary interest, must not be over- 
looked. They relate to the cost of a pocket breviary made for the use of 
Eleanor de Montfort. Twenty dozen of fine veUum were purchased for it, 
at the price of lOs. and the writing, which was executed at Oxford, cost 
14*.' 

We may note, as a striking peculiarity in this document, that the house- 
hold servants are generally distinguished by Saxon names ! we have Hande 
and Jacke of the bake-house; Hicqe the tailor, Jacke the keeper of the 
Countess's harriers, Dobbe the shepherd ; Diqon, Gobithesty, and Treubodi, 
who were often employed in carrying letters ; as well as Slingaway, a courier,

whose name is most apposite, and was derived, possibly, from his gait and 
manner. 

In concluding these remarks it is indispensable to observe, that, during 
the year 1265, prices were, probably, higher than usual, owing to the 
troubled state of the kingdom, and to the ravages committed both by the 
royal party and by the adherents of Leicester. Vast quantities of grain and 
provisions of all kinds were bought up, or seized, to store castles and victual 
troops ; by which the general supply of fairs and markets was materially 
diminished ;' while the insecurity of travelling limited the traffick of mer- 
chants and, consequently, enhanced the value of every species of commodity. 
The continuator of Matthew Paris thus terminates his account of the year in 
question. " The past year was fruitful, temperate, and healthy ; but grievous 
in all the affairs of England, by reason of the general war, of the King's cap- 
tivity, and of the lamentable ^poil of public and private property." * These 
facts should be carefully weighed before any general conclusions are drawn 
from the prices set down in the roll. 

With respect to the value of money in the thirteenth century it is sufficient 
to say that one shilling then would purchase as much as fifteen now.' 



The original roll seems to have been taken by the Countess of Leicester 
to France ; and after remaining fpr more than five centuries in that country, 
perhaps in the archives of the monastery at Montargis, where she fixed her 
residence, it at length found its way back to England, and was purchased in 
1831 by the Trustees of the British Museum ; it is No. 8877 of the Addi- 
tional MSS. The document is thus described by a former French possessor. 

1 In May, 1265, Leicester sent writs, in the King's name, to the Sheriffs of Hereford, Salop, and 
Stafford ordering them to prohibit the holding of fairs and markets in their respective counties, and 
to proclaim that all pro-visions for sale should follow the royal person. — Rot. Claus. 49 Hen. 3 m. 4.

la bataiUe d'Evesham, oii le comte de Leicester fut tue." 

It is needless to enter into any lengthened statement to prove that the 
date thus assigned to the roll is an anachronism. The facts that the Earl 
of Leicester, his son Henry de Montfort and others who were slain at 
Evesham are mentioned in it as alive, and that the Countess withdrew from 
England soon after that battle shew that it cannot be given to a later year 
than 1265. To these however we may add further and more conclusive 
proofs. The wages of servants are calculated by the regnal year of Henry 
the Third, that year being his forty-ninth, and the dates of the moveable 
feasts in 1265 coincide with those given in the roU. 

As we find that servants' wages were computed by the regnal year it is 
reasonable to suppose that the roll, which in its present state is obviously 
imperfect, commenced in October 1264; the 19th of that month being the 
anniversary of Henry's accession. That some matter preceded that which is 
at present the commencement of the document, is clear from the absence 
of a title, and the language of the accountant who refers to persons " afore- 
said" as forming part of the family on the 19th of February: the last mem- 
brane yet bears marks of another having been originally sewn to it : the ac- 
count was probably continued up to the time of the Countess's departure 
for France.

This Household Roll is believed to be the earliest known memorial of the 
domestic expenditure of an English subject ; there are a few royal accounts 
of earlier date. It is in a remarkable state of preservation considering its age 
and the accidents to which aU manuscripts are exposed until placed in secure 
custody. It was written by more than one person, but the character of aU is 
that which may be called the chancery or clericalhand of the time of Henry 
the Third. As no useful end would have been attained by preserving its 
contractions and peculiar orthography, the former have been extended 
and the latter modernised ; occasional foot notes being added to indicate 
the alterations introduced into the text. 



II. Rolls containing the payments made by the 
Executors of Eleanor, Consort of Edward the 
First. 



Few materials are extant for the lives of the early Queen-consorts of 
England. It was only when some of them emerged from the privacy of domes- 
tic life into the field of politics and intrigue, or when scandal grew busy with 
their fame, that contemporary annalists going beyond a mere eulogy of 
their personal charms have left us a degree of information respecting them 
which rather serves to excite than to satisfy curiosity. No equivocal re- 
putation is associated with the name of Eleanor of Castile. She never 
swerved from the position which fortune assigned her, nor failed to perform 
the gentle and peaceful duties which belonged to it. The memory of her 
unobtrusive virtues and worth passed away with those who had witnessed, or 
were the objects of, her care and solicitude, and thus it is, that in attempting 
the present notice, with all the aid derivable from the records of her time, our 
narrative wiU present little more than a sketch of the circumstances attending 
her marriage and her death.- 

After the recall of the Earl of Leicester from Guienn? in 1252' those 
intestine troubles were renewed which the energy and severity of his admi- 
nistration had temporarily suppressed. The exhausted treasury of Henry 
the Third and the unwillingness of the EngUsh to grant supplies pre- 
vented him, for some time, from taking effectual steps to coerce the insur- 
gents. At the moment when his authority in the province was at its lowest 

' See p. xxi, ante.

ebb, Alphonso the Tenth, King of Castile and Leon, whose scientific acquire- 
ments obtained him the surname of El Sabio, or the Wise, laid claim to it, 
alleging that the province belonged to him in right of his great-grandmother, 
Eleanor, daughter of Henry the Second and Eleanor of Aquitaine, who had 
received it in dower upon her marriage with Alphonso III., King of Castile, 
in 1170.' 

Alphonso was supported and encouraged in these doubtfiil and obsolete 
pretensions by a party in the province headed by the turbulent Gaston de 
Mon9ade, Vicomte de Beam.^ The rapid spread and success of this faction 
roused Henry to a sense of his danger, and having at last succeeded in 
wringing a subsidy from the English upon condition of strictly enforcing the 
provisions of the Great Charter,^ he determined to employ it in reducing 
Guienne to obedience. Upon his arrival there in 1253 he undertook several 
expeditions against the rebels which terminated with success, for the Gascons 
were at once taken by surprise at his unwonted energy and terrified by the 
savage mode of warfare which he adopted. Their vineyards were rooted up, 
their crops destroyed and amid this general desolation they exclaimed, that 
the King was a greater enemy to them than the Earl of Leicester had ever 
been.'' 

To secure the advantages he had gained Henry, always partial to negotia- 
tion, resolved if possible to conciliate the King of Castile, who notwithstanding 
the TVgent soUcitations of the insurgents had hitherto delayed advancing to 
their assistance. With this view he sent ambassadors to the Spanish court, 
to demand Eleanor the half-sister of Alphonso in marriage for Prince Ed- 
ward,' upon whom he had already settled the sovereignty of Guienne. 
Alphonso complied with his request upon condition that the Prince should 
be sent into Spain to complete the marriage. To this, Henry, after some 
hesitation,^ assented and in 1254 Edward proceeded to Burgos where he was 
graciously received by Alphonso, who knighted him and celebrated the

lix 

marriage with great pomp.' The Prince and his bride returned to Bordeaux 
bringing with them a charter bearing a golden seal,^ by which the Spanish 
sovereign rehnquished, in favour of them and their heirs, all claims upon the 
province of Guienne. 

The English had suffered so much from Henry's costly patronage of 
foreigners that it is not surprising they should have regarded this aUiance with 
aversion. They asked what assistance the King of Spain, surrounded by 
domestic foes and separated by distant lands and varjring climates, could 
afford their sovereign against his natural enemies the French. They said the 
King knew " the habits and religion of the Spaniards, who were the very 
refuse of mankind, hideous in their persons, contemptible in their dress, and 
detestable in their manners." ^ They computed moreover that Henry had 
spent in this expedition into Guienne, whereby he had gained no more than 
he before possessed, at least twenty-seven thousand pounds,* besides having 
lavished lands and pensions upon people unworthy of his favour. It was re- 
marked that after the conclusion of the marriage the fame of the King of 
Spain spread far and wide, while the King of England who had parted with 
the finest provinces of his realm to establish his son, daily lost credit.^ 

Henry left Guienne in the autumn of 1254 and on his return to England 
passed through Paris, with a retinue so numerous and splendid as to have 
astonished the French. It was on this occasion that he gave that costly en- 
tertainment to St. Louis, which was called;^the "Feast of Kings." ^ Prince 
Edward and his wife remained in Guienne until the following year. 

It was not long before the consequences of the Spanish alliance, foreseen 



> M. Paris, 765. 

^ It is still preserved in the Chapter House, Westminster : there is a fac-simile of it in Rymer ; 
we may observe that this charter did not confer the honour of knighthood upon Edward, as has 
been often stated ; it merely recites that Alphonso had knighted him.

by the English, began to appear. While Henry was preparing for the war- 
hke journey which he undertook into Scotland, in 1255, to avenge the insults 
offered, by Robert de Ros and John Baliol, to his sister and her husband,' 
he was apprised that ambassadors from the King of Spain were on their way 
to England. They were the Infante Don Sancho, Archbishop-elect of 
Toledo, Eleanor's brother, and Sir Garcias Martinez, a Spanish nobleman of 
some celebrity.2 The reason for their coming was not publicly known, but 
it was whispered among the people, that they expected to increase their 
wealth by the rich presents they were sure to receive from the King, " who 
was wont to distribute, indiscriminately, among such persons all that he 
extorted from his own subjects." ^ It is just possible that the real object of 
their visit was to prepare for the reception of Eleanor. 

Henry, who was at Nottingham when he received the first notice of their 
expected arrival, immediately dispatched a precept to Reginald of Cobham, 
Sheriff of Kent and Constable of Dover Castle, commanding him^to receive them 
" honourably and courteously," in person, on their landing ; to supply them 
with all necessaries while they remained within his jurisdiction and to conduct 
them to the New Temple, London, which was appointed for their residence.'' 
The Sheriffs of London were ordered to pay fifty marks to Edward of 
Westminster, the King's architect, the Constable of the Tower and John of 
Southwark, to be by them expended in " shewing honours'' ^ to them on their 
arrival in the metropolis. John Gizors, Chamberlain of London, was 
directed to deliver four tuns of wine to be deposited for their use in the 
cellars of the Temple,^ and Richard de Montfitchet, keeper of the King's 
forest in Essex, had commands to slay ten fat deer and take them to the same 
place, that a well stored larder might await their coming.' 

It is possible, however, that the King thought his preparations were rather 
too liberal, for on the 15th. of September, being then at Wark Castle, in

Northumberland, he sent a secpnd precept to Reginald of Cobham, saying 
that although he had previously ordered him to pay all the expenses of the 
said ambassadors until their arrival in London, it was not necessary that he 
should do so : it would be sufficient to receive them with honour, to dis- 
charge the port-dues for their passage, to present them daily with gifts from 
the King, but to let them travel to London at their own cost.' This last 
injunction does not seem to have been strictly obeyed, as Reginald of Cob- 
ham was allowed, upon rendering his accoimts at the Exchequer, £79 4*. 4d. 
which he had expended in defraying their expenses from Dover to London. 

They reached the capital about the end of December. The Mayor and 
Sheriffs had strict commands to receive them with that honour and respect 
which the King was most anxious should be shewn them." In their suite 
came two jongleurs^ belonging to the household of the King of Castile, 
and a serjeant named Gonsalvo who h^d in charge a present of Spanish 
horses and a sbield, for Henry.'* The Londoners, however, were scandalised 
to see the Archbishop-elect, a boy of twenty, riding in great state, wearing a 
ring on his thumb, and bestowing his benediction on the people : they re- 
marked that their manners were utterly at variance with Enghsh customs 
and habits ; that while the walls of their lodgings in the Temple were hung 
with silk and tapestry, and the very floors covered with costly carpets,' their 
retinue was vulgar and disorderly, and that they had few horses, but many 
mules. Notwithstanding the King's injunctions, the popular feelings on 
these subjects were vented in abusive language and sarcastic allusions to the 
gluttony and luxuriousness of this fresh supply of aliens.^ 

The arrival of Eleanor followed shortly after that of her brother. The 
records of the time enable us to trace the preparations for her reception. 
On the 27th of July, the King, then at Nottingham, sent an order to the

cester, the royal goldsmith, for the purpose of making a silver alms-dish for 
Eleanor's use.' On the 22nd of August, Edward of Westminster purchased, 
by the King's directions, -twelve silken cloths, viz. six of Arras and six of 
gold, which were to be sent without delay to Dover, that they might 
be ready against her arrival ; as oblations to be presented by her in the 
great monasteries between Dover and Westminster. He brought also two 
golden fermails, or brooches, each worth ten marks, to be oifered at the 
shrines of St. Thomas at Canterbury and St. Edward at Westminster.^ On 
the 22nd of September, Reginald of Cobham was ordered to receive her in 
person, on landing, to lodge her honourably in the castle, and to conduct her 
from thence to London.^ 

Although expected about the Feast of St Michael,* Eleanor did not reach 
Dover until the beginning of October. She landed with a great retinue, but 
a very scanty wardrobe ;* this we may suppose she intimated to her father-in- 
law, who directly ordered his Treasurer to transmit her a hundred marks to 
provide what she most needed, and to send her at the same time a handsome 
palfrey.^ On her road to London she stopped two days at Canterbury, by 
Henry's desire, to celebrate the feast of St. Edward : ? the bailiifs of the town 
were commanded to supply all necessaries for the solemnity and the amount 
of their expenditure was £29 lis. l^d. ^ 

Eleanor arrived in London on Sunday, the Feast of St. Etheldreda, I7th 
of October, 1255.^ The King and court, the mayor, citizens and clergy of 
London went forth in solemn array to meet her, and conducted her through 
the city, which was hung with many coloured cloths fbene cortinata) and 
variously decorated, to Westminster where, she found her apartments, 
through the care of the ambassadors who had preceded her, adorned with 
costly hangings, like a church, and carpeted, after the Spanish fashion.'"

Upon witaiessing these expensive preparations for her reception the national 
prejudices, already alarmed at the number of Spaniards who accompanied 
her, again broke forth. Although the Londoners in obedience to the King's 
orders* had received the Princess with songs, music, and other "joyfiil 
devices," they began to mock and sneer at such outrageous pomp and 
expense, which experience told them would soon affect their own pockets. 
At this djstance of time their fears and lamentations would appear ludicrously 
absurd did we not know how much they had suffered from the foreign con- 
nections of the throne. Some, says Matthew Paris, dreaded that the country 
would be "violently seized" by an inroad of Spaniards,^ while "grave 
persons and discreet men, pondering over future chances, sighed from the 
depths of their hearts, carefully considering the gratifications which the King 
lavished upon all aliens. For the honours shewn to the Spaniards caused the 
wonder and astonishment of all, nor was it surprising. The English, therefore, 
were inconsolably sad because among all nations they were held in least es- 
teem by their own sovereign, and were threatened with irreparable ruin." ^ 

Edward returned from Guienne on the 29th of November, and was received 
in London with the same respect which had been shewn to his wife.* 

Soon after Eleanor's arrival her brother the Archbishop of Toledo t ook 
his departure.' Henry presented him, on leaving, with four hundred marks 
and commanded the sheriff of Kent to give him and his retinue a speedy 
passage from Dover.^ The two jongleurs who accompanied him received a 
gift of twenty-shillings each, and Gonsalvo, the serjeant, forty .' Sir Garcias 
Martinez, however, seems to have been so well pleased at his reception in 
England, that he stayed some time longer. In the first instance Henry 
granted him an annuity of 100 marks ;^ and when, early in December, 
he talked of returning to Spain, gave him a hundred pounds towards his

expenses.' There was probably some difficulty in finding this money, for Sir 
Garcias still lingered; at length on the 8th of December the King sent a 
peremptory mandate to the Treasurer to deUver to Martinez all the money 
and jewels promised him ; and if there should not be sufficient in the 
treasury to enable him to do so, he was directed to pawn such of the royal 
jewels as might be in his keeping, either to " Jews or Christians," to make 
up the necessary sum; and to shew such diligence in the business that 
Sir Garcias and his followers might be no longer delayed for want of their 
presents, nor the King put to further cost for their maintenance.^ This im- 
pignorating process was not very speedily completed, as Martinez did not 
leave England until June, 1256.' 

It soon became manifest that the English were not deceived in supposing 
that the Spanish alhance would call into being a fresh crowd of applicants 
for the favours of their profuse sovereign. Even before Eleanor reached Eng- 
land the knights of the Spanish order of St. Jago petitioned Henry for a 
grant of lands in England and their request was seconded by Alphonso. The 
king replied with many compliments that when he saw " a suitable occasion 
and place he would readily take care to do that which should add to the 
honour and profit of their order ."^ In 1256 Matthew Paris observes that 
" the King's Poitevin brothers, the Provenjals, and now the Spaniards and 
Romans are enriched with daily augmenting wealth, and elevated to honours, 
while the English are discarded.'^ In the same year the' number of foreign 
annuitants was increased by the coming of Eleanor's brother, the Infante 
Don Henry who had fled from Spain after an unsuccessful revolt against 
Alphonso.* « The King," says the same author, " according to his custom 
towards all foreigners, opened the bosom of consolation, and ordered all 
necessaries to be abundantly suppUed to him : and entrusted him and his

followers to the charge of William Bonquer, knight, who knew the Spaniards 
and their manners and customs, having been several times ambassador from 
the King of England to the King of Spara." ' Contemporary records prove 
the truth of this statement ; in August 1256 the Sheriff of Oxford was 
ordered to pay Bonquer thirty marks for Don Henry's expenses,^ and in 
October the King gave him a hundred marks.' Yet at this very juncture 
Henry was resorting to all expedients to replenish his treasury exhausted by 
the enormous expense of his expedition to Guienne, and by the futile efforts 
he was now making to place his second son Edmund on the throne of Sicily. 
His debts, as he said himself, amounted to two or three hundred thousand 
marks " it was horrible to think of them.""* In this state of things his 
attempts at retrenchment in some matters were as ridiculous as his lavish 
expenditure in others. Guy de Lusignan, Henry's uterine brother, offered as 
his mite towards paying off the royal creditors, to be content with one gown, 
instead of, perhaps two or three, for the feast of Christmas 1256: the King 
caught eagerly at this generous proposal and directed his tailor Roger to 
deliver him but one, which however was to be in every way suitable " to so 
great a man."" 

The poverty of the father was shared by the son. For although Henry 
had settled Guienne, Ireland, Wales and Chester upon Edward, and calcu- 
lated his annual revenue therefrom at fifteen thousand marks,^ it is more 
than probable the Prince did not derive so much from these grants. Guienne 
was still unquiet and certainly impoverished ; Ireland the mere shadow of 
a possession,; and the Welsh who had been goaded into revolt had over- 
run the principality of Chester which, though the smallest, was, perhaps, 
the most profitable of his territories.' The dower of Eleanor was only a 
thousand pounds a year arising from the castles and towns of Grantham,

Stamford, the Peak and Tickhill.' Edward's pecuniary means were in- 
sufficient for the payment of bis retainers, who consequently indemnified 
themselves by plundering in every direction, and their excesses became so 
grievous thsft the tyranny of Henry seemed to grow petty compared with 
the outrageous proceedings of the followers of his son.^ Matthew Paris 
describes the family of Edward to have been composed of a rabble rout of 
ruffians and robbers, who plundered the pack-horses and carts of merchants 
and seized by force the provisions of their fellow countrymen. The conduct 
of the Prince himself encouraged their insubordination. The same author 
relates, as one of many instances of his cruelty, that in travelling in a quiet 
district in time of peace he ordered his servants to stop a youth whom he 
met on the road, and to cut off his ears and put out one of his eyes ; and 
this from mere ferocity.' Such was the youthful character of the monarch 
whose wise proceedings in after years have obtained him the honourable name 
of the English Justinian; and such the family into which Eleanor at the 
age of fifteen passed from the court of her brother. 

, From the year 1256 to the time when she accompanied her husband to 
the Holy Land, Eleanor's name is scarcely mentioned by contemporary 
writers, except to record the births of her children. In 1258 Edward's 
poverty obliged him to mortgage his best possessions to William de Valence 
his father's uterine brother.'' During the contest between Henry the Third 
and his barons Eleanor resided chiefly at Windsor Castle, which she was 
compelled to quit for Westminster after the battle of Lewes in 1264.' In 
the following year Montfort obliged Edward to yield him the principality of 
Chester and the Castle and Honoxir of Peak under colour of an exchange.' 
By the King's order apartments were constructed in Guildford Castle, for 
Eleanor's accommodation, in 1268 ;'' and in 1271 she sailed with her husband 
for Syria.^

related with the addition of his cure having been eflFected by the heroism of 
Eleanor, who sucked the venom from his wound. This story is not found 
in any of our historians before the time of Camden, who first published it in 
his " Britannia," upon the authority of an author whom he cites under the 
name of Rodericus Toletanus.' The Chronicle of Roderic, Archbishop of 
Toledo, a work by no means difiicult of access, was terminated by its author, 
as he himself states, in 1243, twenty-eight years before the occurrence he is 
supposed to have recorded. As it is impossible that a writer of Camden's 
respectability should have invented the fiction, we can only account for its 
appearance in his work by supposing he might have seen it in some other 
Spanish chronicle, or in a continuation of Roderic's annals which has, 
hitherto, escaped notice. But although the venerable author of the " Bri- 
tannia" may be readily acquitted of any disposition to impose upon the 
world, it is not the less certain there are no sufficient reasons for crediting 
the tale. The silence of every contemporary writer respecting an event 
which, had it really taken place, could not have failed to reach the ears and 
excite the admiration of aU, is fatal to its credibility, while the particulars 
furnished by Hemingford and Wikes^ respecting the method of Edward's 

' Gough's Camden, vol. ii. pp. 8-26. 
^ Hemingford, after narrating the attempt of the murderer, proceeds thus ; " Accurrensque statim

cure, are too minute, and possess a character of authenticity too peculiar, to 
excite the slightest doubt of their correctness. 

The death of Henry the Third in 1272, while Edward was yet in the 
Holy Land, raised Eleanor to the dignity of Queen Consort of England. 
On her return from the East in 1273 she visited her brother Alphonso,' and 
in the following year was crowned with her husband at Westminster with a 
degree of splendour unexampled in the annals of England. 

In 1279, Eleanor inherited the county of Ponthieu in right of her mother, 
Joan, widow of Ferdinand the Third, King of Castile and Leon, who died 
at Abbeville in that year. On this occasion the King and Queen repaired 
to France, and at an interview with Philip Le Hardi, at Amiens, Edward did 
homage to him for this new acquisition, as well as for the districts of Le 
Limousin, Perigord, Saintonge and Agenois, which were ceded to him by 
treaty. 

From this period we hear nothing of Eleanor, beyond a few unimportant 
notices of her health, which occur in the letters which passed between 
Edward and Alphonso and are printed in the Fcedera, until 1286 when she 
accompanied her husband to Guienne. During their residence in that pro- 
vince the King and Queen narrowly escaped death by lightening. They 
were sitting conversing, on the bedside, when the electric fluid, entering a 
window in their rear, passed between them and killed two damsels standing 
in the presence.^ From a roll preserved in the Exchequer we glean a few 
curious particulars of her during the same year. Edward's New Year's gift 
to Eleanor in 1286 was a cup of gold, weighing three marks and a half, and 
worth twenty-three pounds, six shillings and eightpence. On the feast of the

Circumcision (1st. Jan.) he presented her a pitcher of gold, enamelled and set 
with precious stones, which was purchased of WiUiam Farringdon, goldsmith 
of London. During the same year Eleanor offered fermails or brooches of 
considerable value at the shrine of St. Ethelwold at Ceme, 6th of December ; 
St. Richard at Chichester, 31st of March; St. Denis, 29th of May; St. 
Edmund at Pontigny, 14th of August; and St. Martin of Tours, 27th of 
August; she visited also the shrines of St. Wuliran at Abbeville, the chief 
city of her county of Ponthieu, and of St. Eutrope at Xaintes.' 

Among the presents given to Edward by the King of France, in the same 
year, were a coronet of gold set with sapphires, emeralds, rubies and pearls, 
which he sent into England for his daughter Eleanor; and two cloths of 
gold which he gave, immediately, to the Queen. The Bishop of Exeter 
presented a silver gilt cup with a foot and cover, which became the property 
of the Lady de la Plaunche, Eleanor's cousin, and the Visitor of the Temple 
in France gave a chess-board^ and men of jasper and crystal, probably of 
eastern workmanship ; this Edward rehnquished to the Queen.' 

In May 1290 was celebrated the marriage of Eleanor's daughter Joan, 
surnamed of Acre, to the Earl of Gloucester, and in the following July that 
of Margaret, her fifth daughter, to John, son of the Duke of Brabant. Both 
ceremonies were conducted with much splendour, and a multitude of min- 
strels flocked from all parts to Westminster : to the first came King Grey 
of England, King Caupenny* from Scotland, and Poveret, the minstrel 
of the Mareschal of Champagne. The nuptials of Margaret, however, seem

to have eclipsed those of her sister. Walter de Storton, the King's harper 
distributed a hundred pounds, the gift of the bridegroom, among four hun- 
dred and twenty-six minstrels, " as weU English as others;" and this nu- 
merous band of itinerant professors of mirth and song were aided, in their 
endeavours to amuse, by the Fool of the Comte of Artois andBastin Noblet, 
the dancer of Liege.' 

The same accounts which supply these curious facts, present us also with 
some valuable illustrations of the simple manners of the court and of the 
personal character of Edward. We find that seven of Eleanor's ladies in 
waiting and maids of honour, setting at nought the Kingly majesty, proceeded 
to his chamber on Easter Monday, 1290, laid violent hands on him, and 
carried into effect the popular and practical joke of " hfting" or "heaving" 
the monarch until he consented to pay them a fine of fourteen pounds to 
to enjoy " the King's peace;" and be set at liberty .^ On the marriage day 
of his daughter Margaret the King lost his temper and struck an esquire 
on the head with a rod, but without just cause. He afterwards gave him 
thirteen pounds six shillings and eight pence as some reparation for the 
injury he had done him. We may reasonably infer it could have been no 
shght knock that needed so costly a plaster.' Edward, unlike his father, 
was passionately addicted to the chace. Tradition long preserved the me- 
mory of his great hunt in Inglewood forest, when he is said to have slain 
two hundred deer.* We find him chasing the stag in his mother's park at 
Bridgestock and killing her forester's horse with hard riding.^ On another 
occasion when starting for the hunt at Fingringhoe in Essex, his washerwoman, 
Matilda of Waltham, chanced to be present. The scene is readily imagined ; 
the dogs are being coupled ; horses are saddUng, courtiers mounting ; and 
the King in a happy mood, with pleasant anticipation of the sport to come, 
is impatient to be oiF; while the females of the manor are assembled around 
to see the royal train depart. Among them the merry monarch espies the

laundress Matilda, and straitway wagers a fleet hunter that she will not ride it 
to the chase and be in at the death. " Done," cries the bold Matilda and off 
they start ; she rides like a feariess forester, wins the bet and Edward ransoms 
his steed for forty shillings.' 

Queen Eleanor died in the house of Richard de Weston, at Harby or 
Hardby in Nottinghamshire,* on the 28th of November, 1290.' She was 
accompanying her husband in his journey to Scotland, whither he was pro- 
ceeding to settle the dispute respecting the succession to the Scottish throne, 
which the rival candidates, imfortunately for themselves, had referred to his 
arbitration. On the 28th of October, we find a payment of one mark to 
Henry of Montpellier " for syrup and other medicines" purchased at Lin- 
coln for the Queen's use.'' During her illness she was attended by her 
household physician, master Leopard, or Leopardi, probably an Italian, 
to whom she bequeathed the sum of twenty marks, and also by a leech in 
the service of the King of Arragon to whom she gave a cup worth twelve 
marks and a half.* Her bowels were interred in Lincoln Cathedral on the 
2nd of December,^ and Edward postponing his intended journey returned 
with her remains, by slow stages, to London. The account left us by the 
annaUst of Dunstable of the circumstances attending the arrival of the 
fimeral train at his monastery represents, generally, what occurred at every 
place where the procession halted. After noticing the death of the Queen, 
he says " her body passed through our town, and rested one night. And 
two precious cloths, to wit, baudekyns, were given unto us. Of wax we had 
eighty pounds and more.^ * * * And when the body of the said Queen was 
departing from Dunstable, the bier rested in the centre of the market place 
until the King's chancellor and the great men then and there present had 
marked a fitting place where they might afterwards erect, at the royal ex- 
pense, a cross of wonderful size. Our prior being then present and sprinkling

holy water."' Eleanor was buried at the feet of Henry the Third in West- 
minster Abbey on the 10th of December, and on the 12th of the same month 
her heart was deposited in the church of the Black Friars of London/ where 
a chapel seems to have been afterwards constructed for its reception.' 

There is every reason to believe that Edward was sincerely attached to his 
deceased consort. During an union of thirty-six years they had never been 
separated, excepting for" a few months while the Prince was a prisoner in the 
hands of the Earl of Leicester. The King's letter to the Abbot of Clugny 
desiring prayers for the soul of her " whom living he loved dearly, and whom 
dead he shall never cease to love,"* has been often cited, as a proof of his 
tenderness and sorrow, by writers who were probably not aware that it 
is little more than one of those formal circulars, couched in phraseology 
appropriated to such documents, which it was customary to issue upon the 
decease of a royal personage. We have far better evidence of Edward's 
affection for Eleanor than the verbiage and common places of a record. 

If we look to the writers contemporary with Eleanor for any particulars 
of her character we shall be disappointed. They afford the brief, and, as far 
as it goes, satisfactory information that she was chaste and pious ; but the 
annalist of Dunstable, who is equally worthy of credit with the rest, alluding 
neither to her devotion nor her virtue, notes that she was by birth a Spaniard 
and that she acquired many rich manors ; ' an equivocal observation, which 
speaks as much for Edward's generosity as for her own deserts. From 
the pen of Walsingham, who wrote at the distance of a century and a 
half from the period of her death, we have a panegyric of Eleanor, suspicious 
from its rhetorical flourish, and still more suspicious if we consider the age 
of its author.^ 

Of the thirteen children of Edward and Eleanor, four sons and nine daughters, 
six only survived their mother, viz., Edward, who succeeded to her county

of Ponthieu, Eleanor, Countess of Bar, Joan, Countess of Gloucester, Mar- 
garet, Duchess of Brabant, Mary, who became a nun at Amesbury, and 
Elizabeth, Countess of Holland, afterwards the wife of Humphrey de Bohun, 
Earl of Hereford and Essex. 

The documents to which this notice is introductory are three rolls con- 
taining the accounts of the executors of Eleanor's will, from which we may 
collect the general character of that instrument, -w^hich has not yet been 
discovered. It is important to observe, however, that all their expenditure 
was not made in pursuance of the Queen's testamentary directions. The 
payments may be divided into three classes, viz., 1. bequests ; 2. donations 
by her executors, in the exercise of a discretionary power to carry into effect 
all the Queen's presumed intentions, and to provide for the repose of her 
soul ; and 3. payments directed by the King, generally in relation to his deceased 
consort, but occasionally for other objects. The funds available for these 
purposes were the debts due to the Queen at her death,' the revenues of 
her manors, and occasional grants in aid from the exchequer.^ The items 
contained in the first and second divisions are not without interest, and shew 
in particular the munificent eleemosynary provision for the establishment of 
a perpetual church service for the deceased Queen. As the accounts can be 
readily perused we shall entirely pass over these and other less important 
details,' and confine our remaining observations to the entries which con- 
stitute the chief value of the rolls, viz., those which relate to the building of 
the crosses erected in memory of Eleanor, and the casting of the effigies on 
her tombs at Westminster, the Black Friars and Lincoln. From them we 
now first learn the names of the architects of the crosses and the designer

nating a psalter, and for a pair of tablets, for the Queen (p. 103); also a payment of 100s. to David 
of Aberconway for making a chamber in the Abbey there, according to directions given by Eleanor 
herself (p. 107) : and another of 40s. for writing two schedules containing certain indulgences, 
granted by divers prelates, for the soul of the Queen (p. 137). Adam, the royal goldsmith, is paid 
6H. 13s. id. for work done upon certain books (p. 139).

of the eflSgies : they shew that much if not all the merit of the former is 
due to Englishmen, and that the latter were, probably, the production of an 
Italian. As most writers, however, who have touched upon the subject, 
attribute all these works to foreigners, it may not be altogether out of place 
to offer a few remarks upon the state of art in England during the thirteenth 
century, with the view of placing our ancient professors of the pencil and 
chisel on higher ground than they have hitherto occupied. It is a rea- 
sonable cause of surprise that, with the ample materials extant, we have not 
yet , had a comprehensive treatise on a subject which richly deserves more 
extended illustration than we can pretend to give it. 

Henry the Third may be truly said to have been the first Engjish monarch 
who paid any great attention to architecture, sculpture and painting. It is 
probable that at his accession to the throne all the royal residences were in 
a dilapidated condition; it is certain that during a long reign he devoted 
much care and large sums to rebuilding, enlarging and decorating them. 
There is positive evidence that the works carried on at the regal castles and 
houses of Clarendon, Guildford, Havering, Kennington, Marlborough, West- 
minster, Windsor and Woodstock were chiefly the result of his individual 
taste. All matters, from the size and style of a window to the dimensions 
of a room, and the paintings on its walls, were executed according to his own 
directions, often given orally to his officers, and, fortunately for posterity, 
almost always reduced into writing, a circumstance consequent upon the 
fiscal arrangements of the times, which may be briefly explained. 

The only certain revenue enjoyed by our ancient sovereigns arose from 
three sources ; the demesne lands of the crown — the profits accruing firom 
the administration of justice — and the operation of the feudal system of 
tenures, which has been often explained,' The collectors of the monies 
arising from these various quarters, were the sheriffs of towns and counties, 
and the farmers of the. King's lands. These persons accounted at the Ex- 
chequer once in the year, at the feast of St. Michael. In consequence of 
this arrangement the greater part of the royal expenditure was made 
through them: to use a familiar comparison they acted as bankers and 



bcxv 

agents to the sovereign, whose necessities compelled him to anticipate the 
revenues they had in charge. Thus did the King require provisions for the 
celebration of those solemn festivals, when he held his cows plenieres, he 
dispatched writs to the bailiffs of such towns as Kingston, St. Albans, 
Wycombe or Hertford, commanding them to make him so much household 
bread ; to the sheriffs of counties to send him supplies of the meat, poultry, 
game or fish for which their respective districts were famous ; did he require 
wearing apparel, his sheriffs and bailiffs bought him broad cloths and silks at 
the great fairs of Boston, Winchester or St. Ives j and was a new oriel to be 
made in the hall at Woodstock, a chimney or a chapel to be built at Claren- 
don, or the parable of Dives and Lazarus to be painted on the wainscoting 
of the privy chamber at Guildford,' it was the sheriff or bailiff who had to 
see it executed, and to hire and pay the artists and workmen. At the ap- 
pointed time these officers presented themselves at the Exchequer : the 
Treasurer demanded an account of their receipts during the year, and they 
claimed to be allowed what they had expended, producing for every payment 
the royal precept by virtue of which it had been made. If they could shew 
no authority for a disbursement, or if they had exceeded the directions it 
gave, in the one case their claim was refused, in the other disallowed as 
respected any excess : thus when the sheriffs of London having. received the 
King's writ for the execution of a traitor, caused him to be drawn on a sledge 
to Tyburn, and asked allowance for the hire of a horse and manufacture of 
the sledge, their petition was refused, because Tyburn was not mentioned in 
the writ. In this simple manner the accounts were adjusted. In general 
the sheriffs or bailiffs had a balance to pay in ; sometimes they had expended 
aU they received. The writs or precepts to the sheriffs and bailiffs were 
enrolled by the clerks of the Chancellor, and from the series of such enrol- 
ments,^ for the reign of Henry the Third, Vertue made the scattered extracts 
relative to the state of art during that period upon which Walpole has

commented in the Anecdotes of Painting in England. Our subsequent ob- 
servations are founded upon the same documents. 

Before we proceed to enquire whether the architects and painters, who it 
seems could be so readily found by sheriffs and bailiffs in all parts of the 
country, were foreigners or natives, we may advert to the general fallacy that 
the great architects dviring the times in question were ecclesiastics. There 
can be no doubt but that the cathedrals and monasteries, erected firom the 
time of the conquest to the close of the twelfth century, were for the most 
part designed by churchmen, but the erection of these buildings, the slow 
work of years, had by the time of their completion called into being another 
and very dififerent class of artists : it was a great school in which the mere 
workmen or masons {cementarii) became practically acquainted with those 
theoretical principles, which had been scientifically elaborated by the church- 
man in the sohtude of his cloister. The knowledge thus acquired they were 
not long in applying on their own account, and it was extended and per- 
petuated by their apprentices. Most of the cementarii whom we find 
employed as architects during the thirteenth century came from cathedral 
cities, and the neighbourhood of great monasteries ; from places distinguished 
by magnificent monuments of architectural skill and splendour, in the works 
of which they had been employed, as their masters or fathers were before 
them, and in the general features and details of which they had studied as 
in a great chart the sum of all the building craft of their time. To this class 
of architects are to be added the goldsmiths, who, like their Italian brethren 
of the same, or a somewhat later period, generally practised as architects, 
sculptors, or rather modellers,' and painters. 



' One of the bills of Adam of Shoreditch, the goldsmith of Edward I., is yet preserved in the Tower 
(Rot. Miscell., No. 71) ; among the items of it we find " for the making of a child of silver riding upon 
a horse of silver, made in the likeness of the lord Edward the King's son, and offered by the King's 
order at the shrine of St. Alban, in the present year, and for the silver applied thereto, together 
with the gilding of the same boy and horse, and weighing in all, xxvij.s. — ^Ixxij.s." This account is 
of the 24th and 25th years of Edward's reign. The same Adam charges also for making a small cross 
of gold fixed on the sceptre " of John de Balliol late King of Scotland ;" and for a great ruby and a 
great emerald bought for the coronet of the King's daughter, the Countess of Holland, in the place 



Ixxvii 

ITie number of native artists, of every description, during the time of 
Henry the Third could not have been inconsiderable. Architects, painters 
and carvers in wood and stone must have been easily met with by the King's 
sheriffs and officers, when we find works going on, simultaneously, in Berk- 
shire, Middlesex, Surrey, Essex and Oxfordshire. Besides the royal resi- 
dences other buildings of some pretension, castles, manor houses, monasteries 
and parish churches were in progress about the same period; who were 
concerned in their erection ? The sheriffs we may be sure did not import 
architects and painters from France or Italy, nor is it reasonable to suppose 
they were brought, at a great expense, to aid in the decoration of churches 
and other edifices in remote parts of the country. 

The most effectual method of testing the value of these inferences is to look 
into the documentary evidence on which they are founded, and to note the 
relative proportion of English and foreign artists therein mentioned. It 
must be borne in mind, however, that the persons to be employed are rarely 
designated in the royal precepts ; those, therefore, who are named were pro- 
bably the most eminent men of the time in their respective professions ; 
mediocrity is seldom in request and never immortalised but by accident. 

We find but two names which are certainly foreign ; John of St. Omer 
and Master Wilham, the Florentine, two painters ; the latter was also an 
architect as we find him filling the post of master of the works at Guildford. 
To these instances may be opposed a number of names undoubtedly Enghsh. 
The architects of Westminster Abbey were Otho the goldsmith and Edward 
his son, who went by the names of Fitz Otho, and Edward of Westminster. 
Walpole supposed, from his name, that Otho was an ItaUan : if the name be 
any certain index of his country, he was, more probably, a German. We, 
however, believe that Otho was an EngUshman by birth, if not by descent. 
We see that he was a goldsmith, and in those times, and in that particular 
craft, the son generally succeeded to the father. Henry the Second appointed 

of two stones which were lost when " the King cast the same coronet into the fire, at Ipswich, in 
the beginning of the month of January." Another illustration of Edward's temper : see p. Ux. ante. 



Ixxviii 

Otho Young, or Le Jeune, to make the dies for the royal mint,' and it is no 
great stretch of probability to suppose that Otho, the goldsmith of Henry the 
Third, who had a son old enough to assist him in building the Abbey, 
might have been himself the son of Otho le Jeune, the moneyer of Henry 
the Second. To proceed with our hst : John of Gloucester, a mason and 
statuary ; William, the monk of Westminster, who painted the " gestes" of 
Antioch for Henry, and whom Walpole conjectured, without any reason, to 
have been the person elsewhere called William the Florentine; master 
Walter the king's painter; William of Gloucester, the goldsmith who cast 
the brass figure for the tomb of Catharine, the infant daughter of Henry the 
Third, believed to have been the first of the kind done in England f and 
Walter of Colchester, sacristan of St. Albans, whom Matthew Paris, him- 
self a tolerable draftsman, terms " pictor et sculptor incomparabilis"^ were 
all Englishmen and generally employed by Henry ; doubtless many more 
names might be found upon a minuter search than we have been able to in- 
stitute : the rolls now published mention several individuals concerned, as 
architects and statuaries, in the erection of Eleanor's crosses, who must have 
been contemporaries of the persons enumerated above. 

Having shewn that England was not entirely destitute of artists in the 
thirteenth century, we may now consider the value of the conjectures which 
have been advanced respecting the designer of Eleanor's crosses and eifigies. 
All writers on the subject concur in attributing them to an Itahan, although, 
so far as the crosses are concerned, we believe it would be impossible to 
point out any one contemporary architectural erection in Italy, bearing the 
slightest resemblance to their style. Walpole, whose utter darkness on the 
subject of English mediaeval art was relieved only by the ghmmerino- light of 
Vertue's collections, supposed the crosses to have been built after the designs 
of Pietro Cavallini " whom, from various circumstances, he (Vertue) 
discovered to be the architect of the shrine of Edward the Confessor."* 
This remarkable discovery is soon disposed of. According to the best

Ixxix 

authorities Cavallini was not born until 1279, nine years after the completion 
of the shrine, and was, therefore, about eleven years old when Eleanor died. 
Mr. Gough thought it possible the same artist might have executed the 
Confessor's shrine, the tomb of Henry the Third and the crosses and monu- 
ments of Eleanor ; but he rejected their attribution to Cavallini.' 

One point in these theories is remarkable, an anxiety to identify the de- 
signer of the shrine with the author of the later works ; and nothing shews 
more clearly the hap-hazard manner in which their opinions were written, 
than the ignorance of Walpole and his more learned successor Gough as to 
whether the shrine of St. Edward was constructed by Henry the Third or by 
Abbot Ware. A reference to contemporary chronicles, the most cursory 
examination of the same authorities from which Vertue gleaned his notices of 
painting during the thirteenth century, would have satisfactorily decided the 
doubt. The shrine of the Confessor was erected at the expense of Henry ; 
it was begun early in his reign and not completed until just before his death ; 
in 1269 he solemnly translated the body of the royal saint from its old 
resting place into the golden shrine " quod ei paraverat."^ This statement of 
the continuator of Matthew Paris is susceptible of the most absolute proof. 
In 1236, the twentieth year of his reign, we find Henry ordering his Trea- 
surer to see that an image " ad similitudinem cujusdam regiruB" was made 
after the fashion of one previously manufactured, to be put in the shrine.' 
The superintendants of this work were the goldsmith Otho and his son 
Edward, to whom we have before alluded as the architects of the Abbey : 
Otho seems to have died during the progress of the shrine. In 1241 the 
King directs the payment to " his beloved clerk " Edward Fitz-Otho of a 
sufficient sum of money for the support of the goldsmiths, whom he had in 
his employ at Westminster.* We find a notice, probably of nearly the same 
date, that sixty marks were delivered to him " ad operationes pheretri Beati 
Edwardi."^ This work proceeded slowly towards completion until the year

1267, when Henry's poverty compelled him to sell and pawn many of this 
jewels with which he had enriched it. An inventory of the valuables thus 
abstracted from the shrine is yet preserved, and enables us to form, in con- 
junction with the present remains, a very clear idea of its elaborate magnifi- 
cence.' If the inscription long since obHterated but preserved by Dart* and 
copied in the Anecdotes of Painting,' be authentic, and according to which, 
as it has been hitherto read, a certain " Petrus civis Romanm" executed the 
shrine, we may observe that the expression " duxit in actum" cannot be 
strained to mean more than that a Roman, named Peter, finished a work, 
which we know to have been commenced and for some time continued by 
others. The appropriation of the ornaments of the shrine to the relief of 
Henry's necessities was made through the instrumentality of the Papal 
Legate, who seems to have managed the whole affair. When those orna- 
ments were restored, he may have recommended the employment of an 
Italian, who could have done no more than perfect a design ready made to 
his hand.

completed twenty, years before Eleanor's decease, we thereby provej that 
the author of that work could not have been identical with the artist of the 
tomb of Henry the Third and the crosses and eflBgies of the Queen, and so 
extinguish an ignis fatuus that has long bewildered our antiquarian critics. 

With respect to the monument of Henry the Third it has also been 
supposed that when Edward the First returned through Italy from Syria, he 
there found and brought with him to England some sculptor whom he em- 
ployed to execute the tomb of his father. We have contemporary testimony 
that he did purchase abroad a quantity of precious material, which he appUed 
to the decoration of that work;' but no notice occurs of the importation of a 
foreign artist ; that has been presumed. Now it must be evident to any one 
who shall examine the effigies of Henry and Eleanor that they were de- 
signed by the same person. A similar style of handling and detail pervades 
both ; both are distinguished, particularly about the head, by a boldness and 
simplicity of design which is conclusive evidence of their being the produc- 
tions of one hand. Let us enquire how far this presumption is supported by 
facts. From the Wardrobe Book of the 18th of Edward, we learn that 
Henry's monument was not completed at the time of Eleanor's death : there 
is a payment, in 1290, to Master Henry of Lewes for the iron work of "the 
tomb of King Henry ;"* thus supposing the work to have been commenced 
after Edward's return to England, in 1274, it had been in progress about 
sixteen 3rears ; the probability, however, is that it was not begun so early : 
but it is sufficient for the support of our opinion that the operations at 
Henry^s tomb were incomplete in 1290, and that the effigies of Eleanor were 
in hand in the following year : dates, facts and the resemblance of the style 
of the two figures, aU strengthen the conclusion that they were designed by 
the same individual. After stating who that individual was, we shall be able 
to shew that the documents before us contain passages which refer apparently 
to the effigy of Henry the Third as proceeding conjointly with the figures of 
Eleanor. In the first place, however, let us hear Flaxman's opinion of the 
statues and their artist.

" The statues have considerable simphcity and delicacy : they partake of 
the character and grace particularly cultivated in the school of Pisano, and 
it is not unUkely, as the septdchral statue and tomb of "Henry III. were exe- 
cuted by Italians, that these statues' of Queen Eleanor might have been 
done by some of the numerous travelling scholars of Pisano's school."* 

This appears to us the most probable of the mere conjectures hitherto 
advanced upon the subject in question. The roUs now printed inform us 
that the designer of the effigies of .Eleanor for Westminster and Lincoln was 
one Master " William Torel," a goldsmith ; the loose manner in which we 
find all Italian and Spanish names written in early records, justifies the pre- 
sumption that his real name was Torrelli, and that he was an Italian : it is 
not impossible that he may have been identical with master William the 
Florentine painter, who, as we have already seen, was employed by Henry 
the Third, towards the latter end of his reign ; this would not interfere with 
the supposition that he was a pupil of Nicolo Pisanoj who died in 1264. 

In some of the entries respecting the effigies of Eleanor we find that To- 
rel was engaged also upon the image of a king :' who was that King ? the 
statue of Edward was not placed beside that of his consort on her tomb : it 
does not seem probable that he ordered the preparation of his own monu- 
ment seventeen years before his death, and there is every reason to believe 
that no monumental figure of him was ever executed ; it is supposed that 
his tomb was never completed owing to the troubles during the reign of his 
unfortunate son. We beheve these items refer to the figure of Henry the 
Third. 

The statues of Eleanor were modelled in wax : there is an item for

bringing seven hundred and twenty-six pounds of wax from the house of 
Tore! :' four hundred weight, three quarters and three pounds of the same 
material were purchased for the modelling of the images over the Queen's 
bowels at Lincoln, and her heart at the Black Friars, London,* three of these 
which were of small size were "made and cast" by an Englishman, Wilham 
of Suffolk ;' others were the work of a sculptor named Master Alexander of 
Abingdon,* and another called " Dymenge de Legery" or "de Reyns;" they 
also made the marble tomb at Lincoln on which was placed one of the large 
effigies designed and cast by Torel.* 

One thousand seven hundred pounds of metal were bought to make three 
statues,^ and besides this there is a payment of fifty pounds, for the same 
material,' which must have procured double the first named quantity, which 
cost only 21Z. 135. 8d. Three hundred and fifty gold florins, which seem to 
have been worth two and sixpence each,* were applied to the gilding of the 
metal figures. In addition to images there were paintings on and around 
Eleanor's tombs at Westminster and the Black Friars, which were executed 
by Master Walter of Durham.' He was also employed at Westminster."* 

The sum total of the money paid to Torel for the effigies of Eleanor 
and of the King, (whoever he may have been) was 1 13^. G*. 8d. of the money 
of that time, equal in value to about 1700/. of our present currency. 

According to the theories of Walpole and Gough, Torel must have the 
credit of designing the Crosses; but as his name is not mentioned in 
connection with any one of them, we shall take the liberty to deny his 
pretensions untU some better evidence in their favour shall be produced. 
We find that only one foreigner is mentioned among the builders or carvers 
of these monuments.

The crosses were nine in number, viz. at Lincoln, Northampton, Stony- 
Stratford, Woburn, Dunstable, St. Albans, Waltham, Cheap and Charing : 
that at Geddington, which is attributed to Edward, is not mentioned in the 
rolls. Lincoln Cross was the work of Richard of Stowe, mason, fcemm- 
tarim) ; those of Northampton, Stony Stratford, Wobum, Dunstaple and 
St. Albans, were all built by John of Battle : Waltham by Roger de Crun- 
dale in conjunction with Dymenge de Legeri or de Reyns; Cheap by 
Michael of Canterbury; and Charing by Richard de Crundale, who died 
before it was finished, when the works were carried on by Roger de Crundale 
the joint builder of Waltham Cross. It appears that the decorated parts of 
some of these monuments were worked in London, and sent to their several 
sites. The figures of Eleanor with which they were adorned, bearing a 
general resemblance to the efiigies of Torel from which they were probably 
copied, were carved by Alexander of Abingdon and William of Ireland, the 
latter of whom did some portions of the crosses at Lincoln and Northamp- 
ton; the statues on Waltham Cross may have been the productions of 
Dymenge de Legeri. The materials of the crosses were Caen stone, Sussex, 
and Purbeck marbles. The figures were made of the former; those at 
Charing expressly stated to have been the work of Alexander of Abingdon 
were of Caen stone; as were those also at Waltham.' 

The architectural antiquary, who shall take the trouble to peruse these 
documents, will observe some minuter information respecting the construc- 
tion of the crosses, the importance of which wiH be more obvious to him 
than to the general reader, and the exact value of which it is his peculiar 
province to explain. 



The original rolls call for no particular remark. They are preserved 
among the records in the custody of the Queen's Remembrancer.

III. Accounts and Memoranda of Sir John Howard, 
Knt., first Duke of Norfolk. 



Sir John Howard, knight, of Stoke by Neyland, in the county of SufiFolk, 
was the eldest son of Sir Robert Howard, knt., by Margaret, daughter of 
Thomas, and cousin and, eventually,- co-heir to John Mowbray, Dukes of 
Norfolk. The exact date of his birth is unknown, but it is believed to 
have occurred about the year 1430, as we find him knighted and serving in 
France in 1452,' He was elected knight of the shire for Norfolk, through 
the Mowbray interest, in the 32nd or 33rd of Henry the Sixth, 1454-5.' 

He is supposed to have been a partisan of the Earl of Warwick against 
Henry, and is said to have been marked for punishment about the time 
of the deposition of that unfortunate sovereign.' Upon the assumption of 
the crown by Edward the Fourth, Sir John Howard was made sheriff of 
Norfolk and Suffolk, and rewarded for his serviced to the house of York by a 
grant of certain manors forfeited by the attainders of the Earl of Wiltshire, 
Sir Nicholas Latymer and Sir Thomas Daniell; of some of the property 
thus acquired, viz. the manors of Dontish and Dewhsh, Co. Dorset, and of 
Meyton Hall, Co. Norfolk, we find frequent mention in the following ac- 
counts. 

On the 6th of July 1461 he was made keeper of Colchester Castle,'' and 
on the 28th of the same month received the appointment of one of the 
King's carvers with an annual fee of forty pounds.* The post of Constable

of Norwich Castle was granted him on the 3rd of February, 1462,' and we 
have his own authority, that this " konstabelshepe" was worth twenty 
pounds per annum.'' These offices were secured to him by the acts of 
resumption passed in the 1st and 4th of Edward.' In 1462, being associated 
with the Lords of Fauconberg and CUnton in a commission to keep the seas, 
he made a descent in Britanny and captured the town of Croquet and the 
Isle of Rhee." About this time he began to build " the newe kervelle at 
Donwiche" which was not finished till 1466 ; the cost of it is minutely re- 
corded in the present accounts.' He undertook another voyage in the 
autumn of 1463, as his steward notes " what stofFe for vytayles my mayster 
hathe bowt at hys goying to the see.'" 

Sir John served with the army of the north at the siege of Alnwick in the 
months of December and January, 1462-3, and his accounts contain the 
names of the men of Suffolk who probably fought under his banner.' 

From October, 1463, to February, 1463-4,- he was in the retinue of the 
Duke of Norfolk on the Welsh Marches :« we have the particulars of his ride 
into the " northe kontery," and of his expenditure while resident at Holt 
Castle in Denbighshire.^ In 1464 he bought the reversion of " the konstabels 
chepe of Bramborow"orBamborough Castle, in Northumberland, of Robert 
Bernard, for a bay courser and twenty pounds;'" it was worth "be3ere" 
ten marks." At the latter end of the same year he was "certayn weke}'^ 
with the King at Reading, to whom he there presented, as a New Year's 
gift a courser called « Lyard Duras," worth forty pounds ; and gave another 
to the Queen, which was named " Lyard Lewe}" and cost him eight 
pounds. 

His first wife Catherine died about the 13th of November, 1465, probably

at Colchester. There are payments to her physicians, and items for various 
medicines, among which we may note " water of honysoclys." 

In 1466 Sir John was still busy in building the " new kervelle," 
which he seems to h^ve christened the " Mary Grase;"' he bought " an 
ashe of ij. yerdes longe, for to make a lanteme and a stok for an ymage of 
our lady/' In the same year he commanded the vessel which conveyed to 
Calais the English Commissioners accredited to the Courts of Burgundy and 
France." His steward notes that he was at Calais from the 1 5th of May to 
the 17th of September. 

In January 1467, we find Sir John Howard meeting the Ambassadors of 
the Duke of Burgundy at Gravesend, whence he escorted them, in the 
King's barge, to London.^ On the l7th or 18th of the same month he 
married his second lady, Margaret, daughter of Sir John Chedworth, knt. ; 
Lord Bergavenny sent him a doe, and Ordynge the cook of Eastcheap sup- 
plied four pikes for his wedding feast.* In June of that year he accom- 
panied the King's sister, Margaret, to Flanders, on her marriage with Charles, 
Comte de Charolois, afterwards Duke of Burgundy. Shortly after this he 
acted as Deputy Marshal for the Duke of Norfolk at the great jousting in 
Smithfield, between Anthony, Lord Scales and the Bastard of Burgundy, 
on which occasion he expended, on his lord's account, either two or three 
hundred marks.'' It is probable that he brought over " the Bastard of Bur- 
goyne'^ when he returned from Flanders; when that personage quitted 
England Sir John seems to have escorted him to Calais.'' 

In November 1467, he was nominated a commissioner to arrange a peace 
with France. It is worthy of remark that in the commission he is styled 
" John Howard, knight, lord Howard ;" although he and Master Thomas 
Brewse were elected knights of the shire for Suffolk in the preceding month 
of April ; Sir John's election bill is a curious monument of the antiquity of 
" treating:" the votes of the men of Suffolk were propitiated by plenty of

good eating. They consumed 8 oxen, 24 calves, the same number of sheep, 
20 lambs, 30 pigs, 12 pheasants, 108 capons, 240 chickens, 120 rab- 
bits, 800 eggs, 140 pair of pigeons, 32 gallons of milk, and besides hogsheads 
of wine, drank 20 barrels of" dobelle here" and 16 of " syngelle here."' 
His election cost him £40. l7s. 8d. 

Soon after this. Sir John Howard was appointed Treasurer of the House- 
hold, and received a grant of the profits of the coinage of the realm from 
the 1st of October, 1468.^ He was summoned to Parliament as a Baron 
by Henry the Sixth during his short return to power ; the writ being dated 
on the 15th of October, 49 Henry VI. (10 Edw. IV.) 1470. This dignity 
seems to have been given as a lure to attract him to the Lancasterian party j 
it was not the reward of a desertion from his own faction ; for in the same 
year Edward appointed him captain of his fleet;' and when he landed at 
Ravenspur, in March 1471, Howard is said to have proclaimed him in 
Suffolk.* Sir John was, in all probability, present at the battles of Barnet 
and Tewkesbury in the same year; a list of his retainers in 1471, written 
by himself occurs among the accounts.* His name appears among those 
who on the 3rd of July, recognised Edward Prince of Wales as " undoubted 
heyre" to the crown, and swore to take and accept him, if he survived his 
father, for " true, veray and rightwis Kyng of England."^ At the close 
of the year he was sent Deputy Governor to Calais. 

On St. George's day, 1472, Lord Howard was elected a Knight of the 
Garter;? as this is the latest date mentioned in his accounts our subsequent 
notices of him become very scanty. In the month of June in that year, he 
was sent with WiUiam Lord Hastings and other commissioners to treat with 
the envoys of the Duke of Burgundy, relative to the pale of Picardy, and in 
May, 1473, was again employed in a mission to Flanders. 

He accompanied Edward on his invasion of France in 1475 ; concluded

the treaty which was the consequence of that expedition, and remained a 
hostage for the due execution of it until the EngUsh army withdrew from 
France, In the same year he obtained a grant of lands forfeited by the Earl 
of Oxford,' 

In 1476, Lord Howard and the Earl of Arundel were sent to France to 
prolong the truce between that country and England, and in the following 
year the reversion of the office of Constable of the Tower was given him, to 
which he succeeded five years afterwards. He was appointed Admiral of 
the Fleet against Scotland in 1479, and from this time we have no account 
of him until after the death of Edward the Fourth, in 1483, at whose funeral 
he bore the royal banner, as it would appear, officially.^ 

There is no evidence of the share he had in the elevation of Richard to 
the throne ; but Sir Harris Nicolas observes, very justly, that " from motives 
which cannot be misunderstood, even if they were not a reward for services 
which were incompatible with his honour and with gratitude, no sooner did 
Richard assume the royal dignity, than he bestowed on Lord Howard the 
highest rank and most important offices to which a subject can aspire."' 
On the 28th of June 1483, he was created Duke of Norfolk and Marshal of 
England, with remainder to his heirs male. At the same time his son. Sir 
Thomas Howard, was made Earl of Surrey. 

Upon the .landing of the Earl of Richmond the Duke of Norfolk marched 
to the assistance of Richard, and commanded the archers at Bosworth field, 
where he fell on the 22nd of August, 1485. He was buried in the Abbey 
church of Thetford and with his son, the Earl of Surrey was attainted by an 
act passed in the 1st of Henry the Seventh. 

We have already seen that he was twice married; by his first wife

Catherine, daughter of Thomas, Lord Molines, he had two sons, Thomas, 
Earl of Surrey, and Nicholas who died young ; and four daughters, Aime, 
Isabel, Jane and Margaret; by his second lady, Margaret, daughter of Sir 
John Chedworth, knt., he had a daughter named Catherine, who became 
the wife of John Bourchier, Lord Earners, the ever to be remembered 
translator of Froissart. 

Sir Harris Nicolas observes upon the public career of this distinguished 
nobleman that " perhaps the only part of his conduct which is open to sus- 
picion, is his having devoted himself to the Protector, in violation of the oath 
he had taken to support the claim of the Prince of Wales ; and thus having 
become the chief partisan of the supposed murderer of his illustrious patron's 
children, and the usurper of their rights. But he was not a double traitor ; 
and though gidlty of ingratitude and perjury towards the family of his former 
master, he was faithful, even unto death, to the sovereign to whom he had 
transferred his allegiance. That he might have made terms with the Earl 
of Richmond cannot be doubted; and unless his fidelity to Richard be 
attributed to a belief in the stability of his power, he must not be denied the 
virtue of being loyal, at a moment when loyalty was dangerous, if not fatal, 
and apostacy the path to Ufe and fortune."' 

In illustration of his private character we shall here reprint two of his 
letters divested of their antique and uncouth orthography. The first is 
indicative of his temper; the second of his strict management of his 
property.

Carew and I with others were enfeoffed in a house and land within Dover 
Court to the behoof of John Hobbs and his father-in-law, and now by your 
sinister labour, against all right and conscience, ye cause daily great trouble 
in the same, saying that it shall not be spared for no silver, I would advise 
you to cease both of your laboiir and of your spending, and also of your 
unthrifty language, and if ye do so ye shall find ease therein, by the grace of

The following was written, probably, while he was Deputy-Governor of 
Calais, and is addressed to one of his bailiffs. 

" John Andrews ; both I and my wife pray you to be a good husband 
for us, as we trust right greatly that ye be : also, seeing that I, nor mine 
household, have not lain there this many a day, I trust my charges there 
be but little, wherefore my profit may be the more ; wherefore I pray you 
spare all that ye can to have some money in your hand ; and also my pastures 
well stored with oxen or bullocks, against my going home, which I trust in 
God shall be in short space; for though I be well and profitably lodged 
here, yet I wiU not discontinue that country, but [be] some time there and 
some time here, as shall please me best : but I purpose to be more there 
than ever I was, and to be right merry in those parts, by God's grace, to 
the comfort of my friends and to the discomfort of mine enemies, if I have 
any. Wherefore I pray you take the measure of the hall there, and of the 
length, and of the deepness, as much as must be hanged ; and in like wise 
of the parlour, and the chamber over the parlour, and the chamber where 
that I lay in, and of the chamber over the pantry and the buttery ; of all 
these I pray you send me the measure in haste, and I trust before long ye 
shall see the chambers better hanged than ever ye saw them, and I and my 
wife in them. Also I pray you see that mine ambling horse be in good 
plight, for I purpose to send for him in haste ; howbeit trust ye no mes- 
senger that Cometh, but he bring writing under my signet, and signed with 
my seal.'^ '

The accounts of Sir John Howard being in English and presenting no 
peculiar diflaculties to the general reader, it is not necessary to enter into 
any lengthened notice of their contents. Upon comparing them with the 
Household Roll of the Countess of Leicester we naturally perceive a very 
great difference between the state of domestic affairs and of society in the 
thirteenth and fifteenth centuries. The increase of population has occa- 
sioned a greater division of labour, and those arts, which at the former period 
were generally carried on by the domestics of every family of consequence, 
now support persons who make them the means of an independent liveli- 
hood. Brewing and baking have become profitable trades, and the tailor 
has ceased to be a domestic servant. The Countess of Leicester was 
accompanied by her tailor Hicqe even when she travelled ; Sir John Howard 
indeed buys his own cloth, of Porter the draper of Candlewick street, but he 
employs Leonard the tailor of Southwark to make it up. Notwithstanding 
the country had long suffered from civil commotions it is obvious that wealth 
is greatly increased j inns have been established in country towns; a 
traveller no longer takes with him his wine and provisions as did the Earl 
of Leicester ; taverns have arisen in London and become places of common 
resort for people of rank; " Mastres Ysabell" lodges at the Bell in West- 
minster, and her father Sir John takes his wine and " waffers" at the Sun 
in Lombard Street, or breakfasts with my Lord Audley at the Greyhound 
in Eastcheap. The same increase of wealth has brought with it a cor- 
responding degree of luxury in dress and the general conveniences of life : 
the Countess wore some garments of sheepskin and was content with 
wooUen gowns of which the nap was shorn more than once. My Lady 
Howard has her " plytes of fyne lawne" and Humphrey Gentili the Lom- 
bard supplies Sir John with costly cloths of damask, satin, and velvet upon 
velvet " pyrled with goold." In the age of the Countess ladies arranged 
their dress with skewer-like implements, but fair ''^mastres Anne" Howard 
used " fine pynnes." It is more than probable that neither the Earl nor 
his wife could read, much less write ; their daughter Eleanor, indeed, had 
a breviary written by an Oxford clerk, as much for show perhaps as use ; 
but Sir John Howard writes an able letter and reads at his leisure a 
" Yenglyshe boke calyd Dives et Pauper." Of all things the means of com- 



xcm 



munication between distant places was, perhaps, the least improved, roads 
and bridges were still wanting : Dobbe the shepherd guides the Countess 
of Leicester from Odiham to Porchester, and Sir John on his road to 
Chester gives a penny " to a mayde that tawte the wey ovyr Tyddysbery 
(Didsbury) forthe." 

It would be easy to institute a more minute and less desultory comparison 
between the manners of the two periods, as illustrated by the present work. 
The Accounts of Sir John Howard shew the state of almost every department 
of domestic economy in his time : we have payments to bakers and brewers, 
builders, armourers, and shipwrights ; silversmiths, mercers, drapers, tailors 
and cordwaners ; to seamen, soldiers and servants ; they contain notices of 
farming and stocking fishponds ; and taken in conjunction with the Paston 
Letters they furnish the liveUest picture we possess of any period anterior to 
the invention of printing. 



XCIV 



We have now to give some description of the two manuscripts from which 
the Howard Accounts have been printed. The first is in the valuable col- 
lection of Sir Thomas PhilUpps, Bart., at Middle HiU, who purchased it at 
the sale of the library of the late Mr. Craven Ord : the second is now the 
property of his Grace the Duke of Norfolk ; it formerly belonged to the 
well known Peter le Neve, Norroy King at Arms, who has written on a fly- 
leaf at the beginning of the volume — " brought from Framlingham Castle in 
Suff., given to me by Mr. Thomas Martin, attorney at law, of Palgrave in 
SuiF., 1727." Martin, it is beheved, was likewise the owner of the former, 
as it was seen in a collection in SufibUc by Sir John Fenn, who extracted 
from it and printed the biU of the " limpnour of Bury,"' as a note in the 
second volume of the Paston Letters,* the originals of which belonged also 
to Martin. Both volumes are of the quarto size and written on paper, two or 
three fohos only in the Middle HUl MS. are of vellum. 

It win be seen that the entries are made very irregularly ; accounts of 
different years are intermixed and occur sometimes on the same page ; this 
has led to a supposition that they were originally mere loose papers, which 
have been at some period bound together without any attempt to reduce 
them to order. To this opinion we do not subscribe, believing from a care- 
ful examination, that the volumes were always distinct, and that they are 
now in nearly the same state as when first written. In the Middle HLU MS. 
some folios have evidently been transposed during the process of re-binding ; 
these we have restored to their proper positions. 

Many portions of the accounts are common to both volumes ; and as the 
Middle Hill MS. is, generally speaking, the best of the two, we have given 
the variations of identical passages in the Norfolk MS, in the shape of foot- 

' p. 419 seq. ^ pp. ig.jy.

notes to it, and have entirely omitted them in printing the latter. The only 
liberty taken with the text has been that of extending contracted words and 
inserting a few points. It would, doubtless, have added to the value of the 
work if all the accounts had been reduced into strict chronological order, but 
this, in addition to being a work of very great labour, would have rendered 
the process of collation extremely difficult, besides giving an imfaithful pre- 
sentment of the MSS. as they now exist, and as we beheve them to have 
been originally written. It wiU be obvious that the text is susceptible of 
greater illustration in the form of notes, but as it was desirable to print both 
MSS. their very extent precluded the adoption of a plan which would have 
materially increased the size of this volume. 

The Readers of this Work will sufficiently appreciate the UberaUty of His 
Grace the Duke of Norfolk and Sir Thomas PhiUips in contributing these 
unpublished documents, which have so materially enhanced the value of this 
Collection.

He was chosen by the party of the Earl of Leicester, received the Great Seal on the 
Wednesday next after the Feast of St. Peter in Cathedra, 26th of February, 1266, and was 
constituted Chancellor, with an annual fee of 500 marks, for the support of himself and 
his Clerks, by Patent dated on the 26th of March, in the same year. To the enrolment 
of this document is added a curious note, stating that the King " folded the Patent with 
his own hands and caused it to be sealed in his presence." — Rot. Pat., 49 Hen. HI., m. 18. 
He held office until the 10th of August following, and was then succeeded by Walter Gif- 
fard. Bishop of Bath and Wells. Thomas de Cantilupe was, afterwards, Bishop of Here- 
ford and Chancellor of the University of Oxford ; he died on his journey homewards, 
from Rome, on the 25th of August, 1282, and was canonised.

* Edmund, second sou of Richard, King of the Romans, but the eldest by his second 
wife Sanchia, daughter of Raimond-B6renger, Earl of Provence, succeeded his father, 
as Earl of Cornwall, in 1271, and was one of the Regents of England from the demise of 
Henry the Third, in 1272, until the arrival of Edward the First, in 1274. He died in 1308, 
without issue, when the title became extinct, his younger brother, Richard, having been 
killed at the siege of Berwick, in 1296. 

* Robert Baynard, a draper and merchant of London, banished from the city for his 
adherence to the Earl of Leicester. MS. Harl. 690, S. 131, 132. 

6 The Hadestocks, or Hadestokes, were eminent citizens and merchants of London in 
the time of Henry the Third ; no particular notice is found respecting Philip in the chro- 
nicles of the times, but it appears, by the Patent Roll, 49 Henry HI., that Simon and WU- 
liam de Hadestoke were of the party in the City of London which sided with the Earl of 
Leicester, and forfeited their possessions, after the battle of Evesham. 

? Lucas de Lucca, an Italian merchant settled in London, he was afterwards much 
employed by Edward the First, in contracting loans, and in other political affairs.

1 Simon de Montfort, junior, was appointed Constable of Porchester Castle, by Patent, 
dated 24th of December, 1264 ; Rot. Pat., 49 Hen. III., m. 26 : he appears to have held 
it until the battle of Evesham : Rot. Claus., 49 Hen. HI., m. 5. 

^ The manor of Chalton, or Chawton, in Hampshire, belonged to the Earl of Leicester. 
The following curious valuation of it, made after the battle of Evesham, in which mention 
is made of two persons whose names occur in this roll, viz. the Rector of Catherington, 
who has been frequently noticed as being with the Countess, and Robert Corbet, p. 46 seq., 
is translated from the original in the Tower. 

" Inquisition taken upon the oath of 12 freemen of the Hundred of Finchesden, (Finch- 
dean) &c 

Who say that the manor of Chauton was sometime of the Lord Simon de Montfort, Earl 
of Leicester, and he held in capite of the Lord the King, and was the King's enemy j and 
they say that the aforesaid manor is worth, per annum, iiij." li., in all issues ; and afterthe 
battle of Evesham it was seized by Henry Husse, to the use of the Lord Edward j and they 
say that the rent, for the term of St. Michael, is xviij.li. x.s., and that rent was received by 
Stephen the Marshal of the Lord Edward, and by Richard de Putlyhe, the bailiff of 
the place, and GeoflFrey the reeve of the place ; and tliey say that the land of Sir Robert 
Corbat, who was the enemy of the Lord the King, is worth, per annum, c.s., whereof the 
rent, for the term of St. Michael, is vj.s. iiij.d., and it was received by Geoffrey Eynon, the 
bailiff of Sir Henry Husse, before the Feast of St. Michael, who seized that land after the

Parson of Kateringtone (Catherington) was an adherent of the said S., Earl of Leicester, 
and they say that Richard de Putlyhe was the bailiff of the said Earl of Leicester, at Chau- 
ton. • * Item, they say that when they, the aforesaid 12 jurors, by command of the Jus- 
tices of the Lord the King, came to the court of Chauton, to extend the aforesaid manor 
of Chauton, there came the bailiffs of the place, and would have imprisoned the bailiff of 
the Lord the King, who came for the same business of the Lord the King, Avith the afore- 
said jurors J and at the same time they would have imprisoned the jurors ; the names of 
those bailiffs, to wit, Stephen the Marshal of the Lord Edward, and Richard de Pulyhe, 
bailiff of the place, and Richard Morvile, clerk of the place ; and they will not suffer any 
other coUectors." Extenta manerii de Chauton., ex fascic. Inquis. incerti temp. Hen. III.,

probably, written at the close of the 50th, or commencement of the 51st, of Henry the 
Third.

' Ingeram is not mentioned in Dugdale's account of the family of Baliol ; it is probable, 
however, that he was a son of John, who was captured at the battle of Lewes. 

* Robert Corbet was a member of the baronial family of this name, and an adherent of 
the Earl Leicester. During the rebellion he seized the " goods and chattels " of Thomas 
Corbet, the then Baron, in Shropshire. Placita coram Reg^e., 52 Hen. 3., rot. 8., in dorso.

» Walerand, or Warine de Munchensy, the sixth Baron, by tenure, of this family died 
in 1265 ; his son and heir was William : of the Walerand mentioned above there is no

was one of the insurgent Barons, and captured at Kenilworth. * per ?

a writ, directed to the sheriff of Northampton, dated on the 24th of September, 1265, that 
upon the surrender of the castles of Berkhampstead and Wallingford, after the battle of 
Evesham, Prince Edward granted a full pardon to Richard de Haveringe, (see pp. 24, 29,

5 Thomas de Piulesdon or Piwelesdon, a noted London demagogue, and partizan of 
the Earl of Leicester. He was elected Constable by the commons of London shortly before 
the battle of Lewes, at the same time that they chose a Marshal in the person of Stephen 
Bukerel; and it was enacted that upon their summons, and the tolling of the great bell of 
St. Paul's, either by day or night, all the men of the city should assemble, well armed, 
and follow the banners of the said Constable and Marshal. — " Afterwards Hugh le 
Despenser, the Justitiary, who then kept the Tower, with a great body of the people went 
forth from the city, following the banners of the said Constable and Marshal ; and they 
knew not whither they were to go, or what was to be done ; and they were led to.Isleworth, 
and there they razed and burned the manor of the King of Germany, and stole all the 
goods found therein, and destroyed his mills and fishponds ; no truce being observed 
during the sitting of the said Parliament, (at Oxford.) And this was the beginning of

Chronicle, in the MS. entitled Liber de Antiquis Legibus, preserved in the archives of 
the Corporation of London ; it was written by an officer of the city who was a contem- 
porary and witness of these troubles. For this outrage upon the property of the King of 
the Romans, the Citizens were subsequently compelled to pay a fine of 1000 marks. 
Thomas de Piwelesdon forfeited his possessions after the death of the Earl of Leicester, 
and they were divided between Henry, son of the King of the Romans, and Prince Edward.

^ In explanation of the correspondence which the Countess appears to have maintained 
with Bigorre, in Gascony, it may be remarked that Petronilla, Countess of Bigorre, in her 
own right, married, in 1216, Guy de Montfort the brother of the Earl of Leicester, and 
second son of Simon de Montfort, first Earl of Leicester of his name, distinguished in 
the annals of the crusades against the Albigeois. This Guy was slain, in 1220, at the siege 
of Castelnaudari. Petronilla, Countess of Bigorre, survived five husbands and died in 
1261. L'Art de Verifier les Dates. Richard de Montfort, mentioned above, was, unques-

" The person who is previously styled Maohinator. 

^ Evidently the individual to whom the following document refers. — " The King unto 
all &c.", greeting. Know that, at the instance of Edward our eldest son, we Bavc remitted 
unto Thomas de Sandwich, Clerk, our anger and all rancour of mind which we had con- 
ceived towards him, for that he, in the time of the commotion had in our realm, adhered 
unto Simon de Montfort, late Earl of Leicester, our enemy, and was his confidential 
clerk; and have admitted him into our favour and peace : Willing and granting that all his 
lands and tenements, goods, rents and all possessions, by whomsoever seized, after the 
twenty-sixth day of October last past, unto the hands of whomsoever they shall have come, 
be restored unto the same. Witness the King, at Canterbury, on the 30th day of Octo- 
ber." Rot. Pat., 50 Hen. III., m. 46.

' Matthew de Hastinges appears to have surrendered Dover Castle to Prince Edward. 
He received a pardon in 1266, because he having been in the garrison of the Castle in the 
time of the late commotion, quitted it with all his family, at the command of the Prince 
and afterwards constantly adhered to the King and his son. Rot. Pat., 50 Hen. III., m. 41.

ADDITIONAL NOTES. 



Upon a reperusal of the foregoing sheets the following observations and corrections 
appear to be needed with respect to some of the notes ; the illustrations of the text having 
been almost solely obtained froni manuscript sources, it often occurred that the infor- 
mation required and diligently, but unsuccessfully, sought for, has presented itself acci- 
dentally in the course of an entirely different enquiry. 

Page 10, note 6. — Almaric de Montfort was not the youngest, but \he^ fourth son of the 
Earl of Leicester ; Richard de Montfort was the fifth and youngest. See p. 74, note 2, 
and Appendiai, no. III. " Master A. de Belestede," mentioned in the same entry with 
Almaric, was Keeper of the temporalities of the Archbishopric of York, sede vacante. 
Rot. Pat., 49 Hen. III., m. 25. He was pardoned and taken under the King's protection, 
notwithstanding that he had been for some time in the service of the King's rebels, I6th 
of August, 1265. Ibid., m. 10. 

Page 18, note 3. — It may be observed, in confirmation of the doubt expressed respecting 
the identity of the Countess of Gloucester named in the text, that Matilda, mother of Gil- 
bert de Clare, seventh Earl of Gloucester and Hertford, was yet living in 1265. Rot. Pat., 
49 Hen. III., m. 22. 

Page 34, line 13. — The payment to a messenger going to York, on the business of Al- 
maric de Montfort, may be explained by the fact that he had been appointed Treasurer of 
the See of York, 7th of February, 1265. Rot. Pat., 49 Hen. III., m. 24. See Appendiw, 
no. I. 

Page 46, note l.~Ingeram Baliol is mentioned, among several other adherents of the 
Earl of Leicester, in a writ commanding the surrender of a Castle, the name of which is 
not inserted in the record. Rot. Pat., 49 Hen, III., m. 12, in dorso. Upon reviewing the 
evidence which led to the suggestion, that he might have been a son of John Baliol " who 
was captured at the battle of Lewes," the Editor considers it too slight to be admitted. 

Ibid., line 5, note 3. — The name printed Moncens, in the text, and which is conjectured 
in the note, to be identical with Munchensy, ought, perhaps, to be read Monceus, as there 
is an enrolment of a pardon granted, in 1266, to " fValerand de Munceaus," for all trans- 
gressions committed by him, during " the late commotion in the realm of England."

APPENDIX. 



[ Rot. Pat., 49 Hen. III., m. 11., in cedula. ] 

H., Dei gratia Rex Angliee, etc., dilectis sibi in Christo capitulo Eboracensi, 
salutem. Cum dndum, nobis in plena et regia potestate nostra existentibus, 
concesserimus providere dilecto nobis Edmundo de Mortuomari in ecclesi- 
astico beneficio competenti, quamcito facultas se offeret, et post bellum 
habitum inter nos et quosdam fideles nostros ex parte una, et Simonem de 
Monteforti, quondam Comitem Leycestriae, et fautores suos ex altera, apud 
Lewes, extiterimus in eustodia preefati Simonis et aliorum fantorum suorum ; 
per quod, tempore ipsius eustodise, contra voluntatem nostram preefatus 
Comes litteras sigiUo nostro, quo non nos sed Comes ipse pro suo utebatur 
arbitrio, signari fecit, continentes quod nos Thesaurariam Eboracensem, tunc 
vacantem, Almarico de Monteforti concessimus ; et vobis mandavimus quod 
eidem Almarico staUum in choro et locum in capitulo assignaretis : ac nos, 
per Dei adjutorium, vires nostras resumpserimus, per quod concessionem 
illam et alias qua per litteras nostras, nobis invitis, factee fuerant, dum in 
eustodia praedicta eramus, volumus revocari etannuUari, immo nullas haberi ; 
et Thesaurariam ipsam jam sponte praefato Edmundo concessimus ; et 
ideo vobis mandamus quod, amoto quolibet detentore, eidem Edmundo 
stallum in choro et locum in capitido, prout moris est, assignetis. In cujus 
rei testimonium, has litteras nostras fieri fecimus patentes. 

Teste me ipso, apud Wigomiam, vij. die Augusti, anno regni nostri xlix"".

Rex Abbati et Conventui de Tame, salutem. Quia pro certo accepimus 
quod quaedam summa pecuniae S. de Monteforti, quondam Comitis Leyces- 
trise, residet in deposito in domo vestra, vobis mandamus, firmiter injun- 
gentes, quatinus pecuniam illam ad nos, sub omni festinatione qua fieri 
potent, venire faciatis, liberandam in garderobam nostram. Et hoc, sicut 
vos indempnes conservare volueritis, nullo modo omittatis ; et cum scive- 
rimus quantum ibidem liberaveritis, vobis inde quietantiam habere faciemus.

manibus diversorum preelatorum et magnatum regni vestri extitit, mercato- 
ribus vestris in partem recompensationis dampnorum quae sustinuerunt in 
regno nostro, tempore turbationis habitse ibidem, satisfieri faceretis ; ac jam 
pro certo inteUexerimus quod Alienora Comitissa LeycestrifB, nuper Alma- 
ricum de Monteforti et Ricardum fratrem ejus, filios ejusdem Comitissce, 
cum undecim milibus marcarum, ad partes destinaverit transmarinas ; 
Volentes quod prsedicta undecim milia marcarum cedant prsefatis mercatoribus 
in partem recompensationis dampnorum preedictorum ; Vos rogamus qua- 
tinus consilium apponere velitis, ut iUud quod de eadem pecunia facere 
intendimus in hac parte, mehori modo quo fieri poterit, expleatur.

APPENDIX. 



There is an entry on paffe 11.0 of a payment of thirty-nine shillings for a cup purchased 
and given " cuidam menestrallo Regis CampanicB." The King alluded to was, it is presumed, 
a King among minstrels only, and the minstrel so liberally rewarded one of his retainers. 

In illustration of this fact, of the gradations of rank among the minstrels of the thir- 
teenth century, and of the rewards bestowed upon them, the following highly valuable roll 
is now for the first time printed. It is preserved among the records in the custody of 
the Queen's Remembrancer, and contains the names of the minstrels who played before 
King Edward the First at the Feast of Whitsuntide, A.D. 1306, when he held a cour 
plenihe at Westminster, and also at the New Temple, London, because " the royal palace, 
although large, was, nevertheless, small for the crowd of comers ;"' and conferred the 
honour of knighthood upon his son Prince Edward and a great number of the young 
nobility and military tenants of the crown, who were summoned to receive it, preparatory 
to the King's expedition into Scotland to avenge the murder of John Comyn and the 
revolt of the Scotch. 

This document may serve also to elucidate the points disputed by Dr. Percy and Joseph 
Ritson, respecting the country and dignity of the minstrels who frequented England in 
early times. " In the reign of Edward I., it seems, a multitude of minstrels are 
expressly mentioned to have given their attendance in his court, at the solemn act of 
knighting his son. This is sufficiently credible, but will by no means prove them to have 
been Englishmen."^ It will be observed that Ritson's suspicion was correct ; there can 
be no reasonable doubt but that many of the persons named in this roll were Frenchmen. 
He is less fortunate in a subsequent assertion : " as to dignity, it is pretty clear they 
never had any to lose :"3 here Dr. Percy has clearly the advantage of his antagonist, for 
the roll distinctly separates the commonalty of minstrels from the Kings and more eminent 
performers; the remuneration given being proportioned to the rank of the indivi- 
duals.

1 Chedworth. 
^ It appears from this, and preceding entries, that Sir John Howard married his second 
wife, Margaret, daughter of Sir John Chedworth, Knt., on the 17th or 18th of January, 
1466-7. On the 14th we see that he gave lO.s. to his youngest daughter, Maro-aret, 
" to bye here gere wyth ;" on the 17th Lord Bergavenny sends a doe, most likely intended 
for the wedding dinner; on the 18th he presents 10.«. to young Chedworth, his wife's 
brother. In p. 388, seq., there is a payment to Ordynge, the cook of Eastcheap, for several 
pikes, of which four were for Sir John's wedding, and appear to have been purchased on 
the 17th of January; the " fyne lawne" bought on the 20th of the same month was for 
" my lady his wyfFe." His first lady had been dead rather more than a year. See p. 312, 
ante.
