"And in this undertaking, the Reader may see what Furniture (though it He disperst) our 
Publick Records will afford for History : and how plentifully our own may he supplied and improved, if 
pains were taken therein : for what is hitherto made publick, hath been collected, chiefly out of old 
Annals, and they filled with few things but such as were very obvious, nay the Annalists themselves 
(for the most pait residing in Monasteries) too oftened byass'd with Interest, and Affection, to Times 
and Persons: But on the contrary, in our publick Records lye matter of Fact, in full Truth, and 
therewith the Chronological part, carried on, even to days of the Month. So that an industrious 
Searcher may thence collect considerable matter for new History, rectifle many mistakes in our old 
and in both gratifle the world with unshadowed verity." (ASHMOLE'S History of tlie Garter.)

coming under any of the eight following heads : 

(a) Abstracts of the Monastic Chartularies, and of Ancient Family Deeds, with 
the names of witnesses and fac-similes of seals ; Genealogies of Nobility 
and Gentry (accompanied by proofs), Heraldic Visitations, and other 
papers touching the general history and descent of properties and families. 

(b) Printing and editing of the Public Records relating to the Comity, including 
the Exchequer or Pipe Rolls, the Assize Rolls, Fine Rolls, Inquisitions, 
Perambulations of Forests, Subsidy Rolls, and Assessments, &c., &c. 

(c) History of Parishes and of Manors, and of Manorial Customs and Tenures, 
illustrated by Copies of, or reference to, original grants.

from Episcopal and Parish Registers, Copies of Epitaphs, and Description 
of Monuments and Ecclesiastical Buildings, Abstracts or Copies of Wills, 
&c.

III. The general affairs of the Society shall be managed by a Council of ten, of 
whom five shall be trustees of the William Salt Library, and nominated by 
them, from time to time, and five shall be elected at an Annual Meeting of 
the Subscribers. The Council shall be empowered to delegate, if they see fit, 
the selection of the papers to be printed, to an Editorial Committee. Of the 
Council, three shall be a quorum, and in case of equality of votes, their 
Chairman shall have a cast ing vote. 

IV. The Officers of the Society shall be a Treasurer, a Secretary, and an Auditor, 
to be appointed by the Council. These Offices shall be honorary, but the 
Council shall have power to appoint an Assistant Secretary to be paid at the 
discretion of the Council, as the nature of his duties may warrant. 

V. The Subscription shall be One Guinea annually, to be paid in advance, upon the 
first of January in each year, and such annual payment shall entitle each 
Subscriber to the volume issued for the year of such subscription. Any 
Subscriber shall be permitted to withdraw from the Society by giving notice of 
his intention three months before the termination of any year of Subscription.

bankers, a printed form for which may be obtained from the Assistant Secretary.

GENERAL MEETING, STH NOVEMBER, 1904. 

THE Twenty-sixth Annual Meeting of the Society was held on 
the 8th of November, 1904, at the William Salt Library, Stafford. 
The Chair was occupied by the President, Lord Wrottesley, and the 
following members and friends of the Society were present : Sir 
Charles Wolseley, Sir Eeginald Hardy, the Ven. Archdeacon Lane, 
the Eev. E. Collett, the Eev. S. W. Hutchinson, the Eev. S. Lees, 
Eev. F. P. Parker, the Eev. E. Salt, the Eev. E. A. Wilson, the 
Eev. F. J. Wrottesley, and Messrs. S. B. Barnford, W. S. Brough, 
W. F. Carter, G. Gill, W. II Holland, N. Joyce, W. N. Landor, 
J. E. Mitchell, Major-General the Hon. G. Wrottesley, the 
Honorary Secretary, and Mr. J. W. Bradley, the Assistant 
Secretary. 

The Eeport of the Assistant Secretary was read as follows : 
The Society has lost no fewer than twelve members during the 
past year, five by death and seven by withdrawal. The 
members who have died are : 

Sir Thomas Salt. 

Sir Albert W. Woods, Garter King of Arms. 

Lieutenant-Colonel Gould Hunter- Weston. 

The Eev. J. G. Cotton-Browne. 

Mr. F. W. Mills. 
The seven withdrawals are : 

Major Wise. 

Captain Eobert P. Walker. 

Mr. Eeginald Boucher. 

The Hon. A. Percy Allsopp. 

Mr. W. Essington Hughes. 

Mr. W. P. Eobinson. 

The Eev. G. S. Tyack. 

Against this list of losses, we have to record that Sir Thomas A. 
Salt succeeds his late father in his membership. Miss 
Burne has resumed her connection with the Society after a 
lapse of three years, and has paid for the arrears created by 
her withdrawal as well as this year's subscription. Mr. W. F. 
Carter, who withdrew in 1902, has requested to be re-instated, 
and secured the volumes issued since his withdrawal. 



In addition to these the following new members have joined the 
Society : 

The Hon. H. Burke, Wootton, Ellaston, Ashbourne. 

Mr. A. Freeland, Ashbourne Green Hall. 

Mrs. B. C. P. Heywood, Wootton Lodge, Ellaston. 

Mr. Geoffrey L. Mander, Wightwick Manor, Wolver- 

hampton. 

Mr. John E. Mitchell, Finwood, Rowington, Warwick. 
Mr. John H. White, 175, High Street, CamdenTown, N.W. 
The Longton Free Library has also become a subscriber and has 

bought several back volumes. 
These new members nearly balance the losses of the year, the net 

loss being five members only. 

The financial position of the Society is satisfactory, the balance in 
the bank on October 15th being 108. At the same period 
last year it was ,110. Five subscribers have continued their 
voluntary extra half guinea subscription, making the total 
from this source 101 16s. Qd. 

The Report of the Editorial Committee was read by the 
Honorary Secretary as follows : 

The Editorial Committee submit a report and balance sheet for 
the past year. Volume VII, New Series, was issued to the 
Subscribers in July, 1904, and another Volume for 1905 is 
now in the press. The new Volume will contain the 
Register of Bishop Stretton, who was Bishop of Lichfield 
and Coventry between the years 1360-1385. It has been 
abstracted into English by the Rev. R. A. Wilson from the 
original Record at Lichfield. 

After it had been decided at the last meeting of the Society to 
print the Episcopal Registers as a continuous series, a letter 
was sent, at the suggestion of the Bishop of Lichfield, 
addressed to the Secretary of the Canterbury and York 
Society, which had been formed for the printing of the same 
Records, proposing that the two Societies should co-operate 
in the work. This letter was laid before the Committee of 
the Canterbury and York Society, but it appeared that the 
latter Society had decided to print the Registers in the 
original Latin text ; as Mr. Wilson's abstracts were in English, 
any idea of co-operation between the two Societies had to be 
abandoned. The ancient diocese, however, comprised all 
Derbyshire and Cheshire, and parts of Warwickshire and 
Lancashire in addition to the present diocese. It was 



therefore considered advisable to issue a circular to the 
clergy and laity of the districts comprised within the limits 
of the old diocese drawing their attention to the proposed 
scheme; and the following memorandum was accordingly 
drawn up and sent to all the benefited clergy and justices of 
the peace within the above limits. 

THE EPISCOPAL REGISTERS AT LICHFIELD. 

The William Salt Archaeological Society, which was founded in 
1879, has for nearly a quarter of a century issued annual 
Volumes bearing upon the History of the County of Stafford. 
It is now proposed, with the permission of the Lord Bishop 
of Lichfield, to print English abstracts of the Episcopal 
Registers at Lichfield in a continuous series, of which the first 
Volume will be issued about the middle of 1905. 

The Bishops' Registers begin between six and seven centuries 
ago, and contain not only the names of the clergy presented to 
the various benefices, but many matters illustrative of the 
Canon Law, church services, and the manners and customs of 
the times. In the licences for oratories and chapels, the 
ownership of many manors is incidentally shown, and in the 
Ordination Lists and Institutions will be found the patronage 
and tenure of the various benefices within the diocese. 

The form in which the Registers will be issued is an English 
abstract of the Latin original, the degree of condensation 
depending upon the nature of the entry, but in no case will 
any fact or name of person or place be intentionally omitted. 
The Volumes, of not less than 300 pages, will be fully indexed, 
and will form a complete directory to the originals at 
Lichfield. 

The Diocese in the middle ages consisted of all Derbyshire, 
Staffordshire, and Cheshire, part of Shropshire (the Arch- 
deaconry of Salop and the Deanery of Bridgenorth), 
Warwickshire (the Archdeaconries of Coventry and 
Birmingham), and Lancashire (south of the Ribble). 

In order to afford those who are interested in the parishes of the 
former Diocese outside the County of Stafford, an opportunity 
of procuring the records relating to their counties and 
parishes, the William Salt Society will publish their abstracts 
of the Lichfield Diocesan Registers in a separate form, to be 
issued at the rate probably of one Volume in two years. The 
price of each Volume will depend on the number of Subscribers, 



but will not, in any case, exceed half-a-guinea, to be paid 
when the Volume is issued. It is proposed that these 
Volumes shall form the ordinary issue for the year to the 
present members of the Society, while the Volumes containing 
the Diocesan Eegisters alone will be issued to the special 
Subscribers. The Volume which it is proposed to issue next 
year is the Register of Bishop Robert de Stretton (1360- 
1385). The English abstract of this has been made by the 
Rev. R. A. Wilson, the Vicar of Hints, near Tamworth. 
If you should desire to subscribe to this undertaking, the 
Committee of the William Salt Society would be much 
obliged by your signing the enclosed form and transmitting 
it to the Assistant Secretary, at the William Salt Library, 
Stafford. 

(Signed) GEORGE WROTTESLEY, 

MAJOR-GENERAL, Hon. Secretary. 

The response to this circular has not been encouraging, for 
although over 2,000 circulars were posted, less than fifty 
answers have been received, notifying a wish to subscribe to 
the undertaking. The price named for each Volume, viz. 
half-a-guinea, was decided upon, on the advice of several of 
the clergy, who represented that the parochial clergy, with 
their small incomes, would not be likely to subscribe to a 
Volume of larger price, but the limit thus placed on the cost 
of the Volume will produce an anomaly at first sight, as the 
old subscribers will pay a guinea for the same Volume. It 
should, however, be borne in mind that the Society would 
have been bound under any circumstances to take advantage 
of the opportunity of printing these records, which have been 
hitherto unattainable owing to the difficulty of obtaining 
accurate copies or abstracts of documents of this description, 
whilst the subscriptions of the new members will more than 
cover the cost of the additional Volumes. 

The Committee has also to report that the Rev. William 
Beresford has found an ancient copy of the Chartulary of 
Dieulacres Abbey in the possession of Mr. Arthur Parker of 
Leek. The Chartulary is a copy made by Benjamin 
Rudyerd in the reign of Charles I., and was discovered at 
Shirburn Castle amongst the Parker muniments. Lady 
Macclesfield sent it to her grandson, Mr. Arthur Parker, 
and the latter has very kindly lent it to the Committee to be 
printed by the Society. The Honorary Secretary is now 
engaged in taking a copy of it. 



The Society has to deplore the 1 loss of Sir Thomas Salt, who has 
served on the Committee for many years, who took an 
unfailing interest in their work, and to whom the Committee 
has been often indebted for useful advice. 

Lord Wrottesley moved that the Eeport be adopted, and this 
was carried unanimously. 

It was suggested that the Bishops' Registers should be issued 
iii separate volumes and not mixed up with the lay records of the 
County or other miscellaneous matters, and it was explained that 
this was the intention of the Committee. 

Mr. Brough asked for information respecting the Dieulacres 
Chartulary and where the interest of it lay. The answer was the 
great antiquity of its contents, that the interest of it was in fact 
similar in kind to that of the Burton Chartulary and other 
monastic documents which had been previously printed by the 
Society. 

The Chairman proposed that Sir T. A. Salt be elected a 
member of the Committee in place of his late father. This was 
seconded by Archdeacon Lane and carried unanimously. 

It was announced that the Thoresby Society were willing to 
make an exchange of their Proceedings with the Society. This 
was approved subject to the consent of the Trustees of the 
Library.* 

Major-General Wrottesley, observing that many of the Trustees 
of the Library were present, asked whether the copy of the Liber 
Albus, the earliest of the Bishops' Registers now in the Library, 
could be lent to the Committee for printing. The Trustees who 
were present were of opinion that it could be lent for that purpose 
and they would bring the matter before the next meeting of the 
Library Trustees.^ Mr. Holland remarked that another copy of 
the book would have to be made, as the printer could not use it in 
its present form without defacing it. It was agreed that this 
would be necessary. 

Archdeacon Lane proposed that the thanks of the meeting be 
given to the Chairman and the Honorary Secretary. This was 
carried unanimously, and after a brief reply from Lord Wrottesley 
the meeting separated. 

* Tliis has been since obtained. 

f An answ er lias since been received in the affirmative and the book is now in 
the custody of the Rev. R. A. Wilson, the Vicar of Hints.

BISHOP ROBERT DE STRETTON. 

A.D. i36o-i385. 



AN ABSTRACT OF THE CONTENTS 

BY 

ROWLAND A. WILSON, M.A., 

VICAR OF HINTS. 

PUBLISHED BY THE WILLIAM SALT ARCHAEOLOGICAL SOCIKTY. 

1905. 



PREFACE. 



THIS volume is the first-fruits of a design for the calendaring or 
indexing of the Episcopal Registers of the see of Lichfield. 
When I began to work upon a Register, a summary of the 
contents seemed necessary, as a first step towards either index or 
calendar. At the Bishop's request communications were 
established with the Editorial Committee of the William Salt 
Historical Society, who readily undertook to publish records 
which have so important a bearing on the history of the county. 
To be relieved of the making of indices, and thus to have the 
work so greatly expedited, was a great gain, and I gladly placed 
the results of my work at the Society's disposal. 

The choice of the fifth register, for publication first, needs 
explanation. It was known that the late Bishop Hobhouse had 
been at work on the earlier registers, but how much he had done 
could not be ascertained without some delay. To have 
attempted work already accomplished by him would have been 
more than folly. A register was therefore chosen which he was 
known not to have touched. It is a matter for deep regret that 
his MS. of Register No. 2 seems lost beyond hope of recovery, 
and that it must now be done by inferior hands, whosesoever 
they are. 

I fear that the absence of institutions 1 may cause some 
disappointment; and I regret that it has been impossible to include 
them in this volume. They are in a book by themselves, and 
are now being prepared for publication in the next issue. 

As to the form chosen. An English abstract is not the ideal : 
but it has its advantages. Many entries in the original are 
wearisomely prolix, and contain much that does not repay the 
labour of reading. Others have the same facts repeated several 

1 There are a few institutions in the Register of the Vicars General, and some 
are quoted from earlier Registers,

times in the various documents of which they are made up. It 
is in such entries that the utility of an abstract is most evident. 
In entries which do not admit of much condensation, the abstract 
becomes almost a translation, and the gain by condensation is 
small, while the opportunity for error is greater than in a 
transcript. 

I should like to warn readers against over-confidence in the 
correctness of everything in the abstract. Those who are 
familiar with mediaeval MSS. will not need any warning ; but 
for the benefit of others, I would explain that not only are 
contractions freely used, and that not absolutely according to a 
definite rule, but also there is no difference in the form of the 
strokes which make up the letters 2, ;//, n, u, and v y and the form 
of c and / are identical. In the case of words the sense will 
generally indicate the interpretation, but, in the names of persons 
and places, nothing but a knowledge of what the name really is 
can ensure correctness. I mention these things, not so much by 
way of apology, as in the hope that the remembrance of them 
may lead readers to detect for themselves the true form under- 
lying my errors. I should be glad to have pointed out to me 
any errors which may be discovered, as well as identifications of 
difficult place-names, so that what is amiss may be set right in 
future. 

In the Introduction I have given a life of the Bishop, for 
which I am indebted, almost entirely, to the. Dictionary of 
National Biograpliy, and a short account of some mediaeval 
usages illustrated by the register. The Appendix of Religious 
Houses, though not so perfect as I could wish, will be found 
useful for identifying places mentioned, under various spellings, 
in the Ordination Lists. 

The Index contains, I believe, every place occurring in the 
body of the register. It seemed inexpedient to cumber it with 
all the names in the Ordination Lists, and only the benefices 
have been included. The bishops who ordained, and the places 
where ordinations were held, will be found on pages vii. and 
xiii. of the Introduction. 

In conclusion, I wish to express my thanks for much kindness 
and help : especially to the present occupant of the see, who has 
encouraged and promoted this attempt to disclose the acts of his

viii INTRODUCTION. 

Having taken Orders, he became Chaplain to the Black 
Prince, to whose influence he appears to have owed his advance- 
ment. The following table shows the preferment obtained by 
him : 1 

Before 1343. Rectory of Wykyngeston, dio. Lincoln. [? 

Wigston, co. Leicester.] 
1343. Canonry in Chichester Cathedral. 
Prebend in S. Paul's Cathedral. 
Prebend in Lichfield Cathedral. 
Before 1351 (October). A king's clerk. 
Before 1353. Prebend in the Collegiate Church of Gnowsale 
[Gnossal]. 

1353. Canonry of S. Cross in Lincoln Cathedral. 

1354. Rectory of Llanpadern Vawr, dio. S. David. 2 
1358 (December I4th.) Prebend of Pipa Parva in 

Lichfield Cathedral. 

On January ist, 1358-9, Edward III, at the request of the 
Black Prince, nominated him to the see of Lichfield, vacant by 
the death of Roger de Northburgh. Archbishop Islip refused to 
consecrate him, on the ground of his lack of learning, and Pope 
Innocent VI, to whom he went to be examined, upheld the 
Archbishop's decision. The King would not give way, and the 
see remained vacant, the temporalities being in the King's hands. 
The Black Prince moved the Pope to refer the matter back to 
the Archbishop, who again examined Robert, and again rejected 
him. Finally, seeing no better way out of the difficulty, the Pope 
issued a Bull of Provision (22nd April, 1360), allowing Robert's 
election, and directing the Archbishop to consecrate him without 
examination. On September 26th, 1360, Robert's election was 
confirmed, and a commission issued to the Bishops of London 
and Rochester to consecrate, which they reluctantly did on the 
following day. The temporalities of the see had been restored 
on September iQth, and on February 6th, 1360-1, Robert de 



1 The statement that Robert de Stretton was a Doctor of Laws and Auditor of 
the Rota in the Papal Curia is no doubt due to confusion with another Robert de 
Stretton, whom he appointed his Proctor at the Papal Curia in 1364, and who was 
Archdeacon of Derby in 1367. 

- The Church of Llanbadarn Fawr was, on its vacation by Robert de Stretton, 
appropriated to Vale Royal Abbey. The appropriation was confirmed by the Pope 
Id. Nov. 1362. 



INTRODUCTION. IX 

Stretton made profession of canonical obedience to the Arch- 
bishop at Lambeth, another reading his profession because he him- 
self iv as not able to read. 1 

Although no scholar, he evidently had qualities which recom- 
mended him to the King, and the Black Prince. The Popes 
regarded him as a man of influence, for in 1355 he was instructed 
to assist the Papal Nuncio in preventing hostilities between 
England and France, and again, in August 1371, he was requested 
to procure from the King a safe-conduct to England for Cardinals 
Simon and John. 

Much of his Episcopal work was done by assistant bishops. 
He did not administer Orders in person after Lent 1368 ; and in 
one case he made an unfortunate choice of an assistant bishop ; 
for a doubt arose as to the regularity of his consecration, and, as 
no proof was forthcoming, the men who had received Orders at 
his hands were recalled and conditionally reordained. He would 
appear to have resided for the most part within his diocese, chiefly 
at his manor of Heywood in Staffordshire. 

He founded Chantries at Stretton Magna, and at Stretton on 
Dunsmore, and renovated the shrine of S. Chad in the Lady 
Chapel of Lichfield Cathedral. 

On September 7th, 1381, having become infirm and blind, he 
was ordered by the Chapter of Canterbury to appoint a coadjutor 
within 10 days. 

He died at Heywood, March 28th, 1385, and was buried in 
Lichfield Cathedral on the north side of the shrine of S. Chad. 2 
His will, dated March iQth, 1384-5, was proved at Lambeth. 
April loth (Regr. of Archbp. Courtenay). 

II. THE DIOCESE of Coventry and Lichfield included within its 
bounds the whole of the counties of Chester, Derby, and Stafford, 
parts of the counties of Lancaster (all south of the Ribble), Salop 
(the Archdeaconry of Salop and the Deanery of Bridgnorth), 
Warwick (the Archdeaconries of Coventry and Birmingham), and 
Flint (the detached portion). 

1 Alio professionem legente quod ipse legere non posset (Register of Archbishop of 
Canterbury). It is possible that both his lack of scholarship and his inability to read 
may have been due to defective sight : he had become blind by 1381. 

2 An altar tomb, shown in Shaw's Staffordshire, Vol. I, plate 23, and there called 
Bishop Blith's, was probably his. In the same volume is an illustration of his seal. 



X INTRODUCTION. 

The number of Episcopal jurisdictions within this area at the 
present time is nine, viz., Lichfield, Chester, and Liverpool, the 
whole ; Birmingham, nearly all ; Manchester, the larger half ; 
Southwell, half ; Worcester, about a third ; Hereford and S. Asaph, 
one deanery. 

The Dioceses then adjoining were York (in respect of N. 
Lancashire, York, and Notts.), Lincoln (in respect of Leicester, 
Northants, and Oxford), Worcester (in respect of S.W. Warwick 
and Worcester). Hereford (in respect of S. Shropshire), and S. 
Asaph (in respect of Montgomery, Denbigh, and Flint). 

The Diocese was divided into five Archdeaconries, Chester, 
Coventry, Derby, Salop, and Stafford. 

The population of the diocese was by estimation about a 
twentieth of that now contained in the same area, but the propor- 
tion of clergy to laity was much greater than it is now. It is 
impossible to say what the number of clergy was, but the Ordina- 
tion Lists furnish data for a rough comparison. During the 
24^ years of Bishop Stretton's Episcopate the average number of 
men ordained Deacons was 97; of these 21 were regulars, and 
though the Friars did a certain amount of ministerial work as 
preachers and confessors, they were not parochial clergy and 
ought perhaps to be left out of account. A yearly average of 
76 secular Deacons remains. 1 During the 25 years from 1873 to 
1897 the average number of Deacons ordained was 17 1. 2 Allow- 
ing a margin in consideration of visits of the Black Death, it 
would appear that the actual number of clergy 3 may be from two 
and a half to three times greater than it was in Bishop Stretton's 
time, but that the relative number in proportion to the population 
is eight or nine times less. 

The income of the see was about 330 per annum, 4 a sum 

1 Many of these were ordained to titles outside the diocese, but the men ordained 
in other dioceses to titles in this diocese would balance them. 

2 These figures are arrived at by taking all ordained in the dioceses of Lichfield, 
Chester, and Liverpool, and half those ordained in Manchester, Southwell, and 
Worcester. 

3 The word "Clergy '' is here used in its modem Anglican sense, as not including 
Subdeacons and clerks in Minor Orders. 

4 In the time of the Pope Urban VI. the Cathedrals of Coventry and Lichfield fell 
vacant. Their annual value was found to be .330 3.?. n$d. Calendar of Venetian 
State Papers relating to England. Vol. I, p. 209.

which needs multiplying by about twenty to give its approximate 
value in the currency of to-day. 

III. The Bishop is not merely the chief Minister of the diocese, 
but also the source of all ministerial authority within it ; so that 
no one may lawfully exercise any ministerial function, except it 
be delegated to him by the Bishop. This was so in the time of 
the Apostles, and has been the rule and practice of the Church 
ever since. The admission of men both to Orders and to the 
cure of souls belongs to the Bishop. 

Though the rule remains, many details in its observance have 
altered, and an account of some mediaeval usages may not be 
wholly out of place. 

IV. ORDERS were of two classes : Major or Holy, and Minor. 
It was not necessary to pass through all the Minor Orders on 
the way to Holy Orders. The necessary steps were apparently : 
First tonsure, which made a man a Clerk, but was not properly 
an order, and Acolyte. The other Minor Orders were Exorcist, 
Reader and Doorkeeper. The Subdiaconate, originally a Minor 
Order, came, about the twelfth century, to be reckoned among the 
Major Orders along with the Diaconate and Priesthood. The 
Episcopate was outside and above these two classes. 

All Orders were conferred by a Bishop 1 under limitations 
imposed by ecclesiastical law. The monition to candidates for 
Orders (see p. 159) gives a general idea of these limitations. 

V. A TITLE was always required. As early as the fifth 
century it was decreed that no Presbyter or Deacon should be 
ordained " at large," but must be assigned to a Church, Oratory, or 
Monastery, otherwise his Ordination to be void. 2 The utility of 
this rule, as a check upon the increase of unemployed Clergy with- 
out means of subsistence, is obvious. The means of subsistence 
was insisted on as much as the sphere of work ; indeed in mediaeval 
times the latter was sometimes dispensed with, and men were 
ordained to the title of " Patrimony " or " Hereditary House " 
(" Private means"), and even to the title of a yearly pension. 

1 It would appear that Abbots had in some cases assumed the power of conferring 
Minor Orders on those under their jurisdiction, as they are forbidden to do so by the 
Council of Trent. Session xxiii. Decree of Reforfation, Chap. x. 

2 Canon of the Council of Chalcedon, A.D. 451. 



xii INTRODUCTION. 

In the case of the Regular Clergy (Monks and Friars), their 
profession constituted a title to Orders. The Secular Clergy, 
unless presented early to a benefice, received their title almost 
universally from the Religious Houses. The Religious Houses 
had the patronage of a large number of Parochial Churches and 
Chapels, which had been appropriated to them ; and they would 
be able to find places for many secular clerks in serving them, 
and the Chantries in them ; but many of those to whom they had 
given titles must also have been maintained by them for years. In 
fact it was to the Monasteries that the Church of England owed its 
supply of Clergy. They provided men with the means of training, 
with a title, and with work and maintenance until they obtained 
a benefice. 

VI. In the Monition, it will be observed that "no one of another 
diocese, unless with LETTERS DIMISSORY from his own Diocesan," 
might be ordained. The Council of Nicaea (A.D. 325) decreed 
that no Bishop might ordain a clerk from another diocese, and 
the Council of Carthage (A.D. 349) extended the limitation to 
laymen. A Bishop was considered to have a right to the 
services of all men of his own diocese who offered themselves 
for the ministry. So that if a man wished to be ordained in 
another diocese, he had to obtain leave from the Bishop of the 
diocese of his origin. The Bishop signified his leave by Letters 
dimissory. A man who had obtained a title to Orders in another 
diocese, might be ordained by the Bishop of the diocese of his 
origin, nor does the sanction of the Bishop of the diocese in 
which his title was, seem to have been required. Most of the 
Letters dimissory issued by Bishop Stretton are to men, already 
clerks, who, either held a Benefice in his diocese and were going 
to reside elsewhere for study, or were going to be ordained to 
a title in another diocese. The Letters apparently were general, 
and authorised them to receive Orders from any Catholic Bishop. 
The present custom of the Church of England is different. It 
vests the right of Ordination in the Bishop of the diocese in which 
a man's title to Orders is, and takes no notice of his origin. 1 So 
that practically the only case in which a Bishop now issues 

1 This would appear to be irregular, unless the countersigning by the Bishop of 
Letters Testimonial may be considered equivalent to the issue of Letters dimissory. 
See Canon 34. 



INTRODUCTION. xtii 

Letters dimissory, is when he wishes to have a man ordained to a 
title in his diocese, at a time when he himself is not holding an 
ordination. 

VII. INTERVAL BETWEEN ORDERS. A deacon of the 
Church of England is now required " to continue in that office 
the space of a whole year, except for reasonable causes it shall 
otherwise seem good unto the Bishop." In the fourteenth 
century the only limitation was that no one might receive two 
Holy Orders, or one minor and one Holy Order, on the same 
day. Men were frequently, almost usually, ordained subdeacon, 
deacon, and priest at successive ordinations. 

VIII. TIME AND PLACE OF ORDINATIONS. Ordinations 
were generally held five times a year (at the Ember seasons 
and again during Lent), and always on a Saturday. 1 

The place of ordination, when the Bishop officiated in person, 
was generally the chapel of his Manor of Haywood. Otherwise 
it was the neighbouring prebendal church of Colwich. Only 
once were ordinations held in the cathedrals of Coventry and 
Lichfield. 2 

IX. NON-RESIDENCE. The number of licences granted to 
incumbents to be absent from their churches is very large. 
This is attributable to (i) dispensation with the age qualification, 
(2) plurality, and (3) secular employment. 

(i) The sons of landed gentry or of patrons might be made 
" clerks " by tonsure, and instituted to a benefice at any age. 
The Bishop then had power over the youth, to place him under 
a tutor, and to sequestrate the income of the benefice to his 
education, and to providing for the serving of the cure. 
Generally the well-born nominee was instituted as an acolyte, or 
a deacon at most, and then got leave of absence for study, which 

1 This possibly explains why the Ember Collect is not appointed for the day on 
which the Ordination is now held. 

2 Out of 1 10 Ordinations, 68 were held at Colwich, 23 at Haywood, 6 at Sallow, 
4 at Frees, I at Berkswich, Bishop's Ichington, Donnington Manor, S. John's Chester, 
Coventry Cathedral, Coventry Carmelites, Lichfield Cathedral, Lilleshall Parish 
Church, Shrewsbury Abbey, and Austin Friars Stafford. John of Gaunt, in 1379-80, 
got a licence for an Ordination to be held in Kenilworth Castle, but there is no 
further record of it. 



XIV INTRODUCTION. 

was renewed from time to time, postponing his admission to 
full Orders. A benefice was regarded, by those who had 
patronage or influence enough, as the normal provision for the 
education of younger sons. 

(2) Plurality was common, and only limited by opportunity, 
as Papal dispensations were sometimes granted to well-born 
youths to " hold ecclesiastical benefices without stint." Robert 
de Stretton himself held one or two Rectories, as well as several 
Prebends, at the time of his nomination to the See, and was 
probably in attendance on the Black Prince all the time. 
Rectors were not required to swear residence at their institution, 
though Vicars were. 

(3) In an age when few beside the Clergy were literate, it is 
natural that their services should have been in request for secular 
employment. The great offices of State were filled .by 
Churchmen, 1 and the " King's Clerks," originally his Chaplains, 
became also, as early as the reign of Canute, an organised body 
for the transaction of the affairs of his government. The 
nobility made a like use of their Chaplains in their affairs 
witness the number of licences to incumbents for absence from 
their churches to serve or attend some lord. It was not their 
learning alone which recommended the employment of Clergy in 
secular affairs ; the system had also the merit of cheapness. 
There was no need to provide salaries for them, as they derived 
their income from the ecclesiastical benefices which they held, 
but did not serve ; the " cure of souls," the object for which the 
benefice existed, being deputed to Chaplains, sometimes both ill 
paid and ill qualified. 

X. MEDIETIES and PORTIONS of benefices belong, as 
regards their origin, to an earlier epoch, and their number had 
probably diminished considerably by the fourteenth century. 
The system of patronage was no doubt responsible for them. 
Partition of a benefice came about, either through an agreement 
between joint patrons, or a division among co-heiresses, or by 
arrangement of a single patron. A surprising amount of 

1 During the episcopate of Robert de Stretton, namely in 1371, an attempt was 
made to substitute laymen, but their inexperience and incompetence soon brought 
about a return to the old way. The first time a layman was appointed Chancellor 
was in 1340. 



INTRODUCTION. XV 

latitude was allowed to patrons in the disposal of the incomes 
of benefices. They allotted the tithes pretty much as they 
liked among the ministers of a church, and were able to detach 
pensions from a benefice, and present men to them. The 
marriage of the clergy, which, in spite of all discouragement, 
lingered in England till the thirteenth century, and which 
resulted in many benefices being handed down from father to 
son for generations, was no doubt contributory to the increase of 
portions. It was not until the Papacy had established its 
ascendancy in England, that the abuse was materially checked. 
The practice was harmful in every way ; the division of income 
tended to clerical poverty, the division of responsibility to 
neglect of duty, and the division of authority to unseemly 
strife. 1 

XI. THE SACRAMENT OF PENANCE has had two distinct 
developments. That of the early centuries, when those 
excommunicated for grave sins idolatry, homicide, or 
unchastity were, after making public confession, admitted 
by the Bishop to penance, and could only be restored to 
communion by him ; which would not generally be for some 
years, or even not until they were at the point of death. This 
solemn penance was purely disciplinary, and was not concerned 
with the forgiveness of sins by God. Its rigours and disabilities, 
and the fact that it might not be repeated for a second lapse, 
made men unwilling to submit themselves to it, and it fell into 
disuse. 

The second development is closely connected with the 
development of belief in the power of the keys. The early 
Fathers do not claim this power for the ministers of the Church. 
In early Sacramentaries a prayer is found for the bestowal of 
the Holy Ghost on Bishops to enable them to remit sins, but the 
form of commission now used in the Ordination of Priests is not 
found before the middle of the eleventh century ; and whether 
this power extended to the guilt of sin, or only to its temporal 
penalty, remained an open question till the Council of Trent, 2 

1 For much information on these and kindred matters see Canon Raine's Preface 
to Archbishop Cray's Register, iv. and v. Surtees Society, 1872. 

2 The Sacrament of Penance was treated of in the fourteenth Session of the Council 
and the conclusions embodied in fifteen canons. 



XVI INTRODUCTION. 

though it is probable that the laity in general had long regarded 
the Priest as possessed of full power. 

The existence of manuals for Confessors, called " Penitentials," 
in the seventh century, shows that auricular confession was then 
in common use, but it was not made obligatory till the Lateran 
Council of 1216. 

XII. JURISDICTION AND RESERVED CASES. The ministry 
of Penance was at first in the hands of the Bishops, and they 
always kept control over it. No priest might be a confessor with- 
out licence from the Bishop or Pope, but the ancient claim of the 
Parish Priest, to hear the confessions of his parishioners, was 
recognized in the system of jurisdiction evolved by the school- 
men 1 , and confirmed by the Lateran Council, when it decreed 
that confession must be made annually proprio sacerdoti, unless 
he agreed to another arrangement, or there was some valid reason 
to the contrary. 

Jurisdiction was also dependent on the degree of (i) the 
penitent and (2) the sin. 

(1) For a King, the "proper priest" was either the Bishop of 
the diocese in which he was crowned, or the Pope ; for a noble, 
the Bishop in whose diocese his principal seat was, and so on ; 
but, as a matter of fact, princes, nobles and gentlefolk got licences 
from the Pope or Bishop to choose confessors for themselves. 
Many such licences are recorded in this Register. 8 

(2) The Parish Priest or other authorized Confessor was not 
competent to deal with all cases. Certain cases were reserved 
to the Bishop, and had to be referred to him, except only when 
the penitent was at the point of death ; then any priest might 
absolve him, and some cases had to be passed on by the Bishop 
to the Pope. The following lines from a document of the early 
fifteenth century 3 give some of the chief " Papal " cases : 

Per papam : clericum feriens : falsarius : urens. 

1 This may be summed up : " The Priest in his parish, the Bishop in his diocese, 
and the Pope in all Christendom." 

' 2 The Pope claimed jurisdiction over all magnates down to Barons. Commoners 
might get licences from the Bishop. 

3 This document, printed in the appendix to Mmdham's History of the Council of 
Trent, gives 20 cases of reservation to the Pope, 40 to the Bishop, and 7 to the 
Abbot.

But: 

Percutiens clericum Roman petat : excipiuntur

Several lists of Reserved Cases are to be found in this 
Register, 3 from which it appears that the Bishop reserved to 
himself offences against his churches, property, person, and 
dignity, and the graver sins. 

Licences to choose a confessor, or to be penitentiary (i.e., 
confessor), even in reserved cases, must be understood as extend- 
ing only to such cases as were reservable, or not, at the Bishop's 
discretion. 

There are several licences to Incumbents to be confessors 
to their parishioners. This does not mean that their penitentiary 
jurisdiction had not previously been recognized, only that they 
were empowered by the licence to deal with cases ordinarily 
reserved. 4 A Parochial Chaplain or Assistant Curate needed a 
licence before he could act as confessor. 

Besides the Parochial Clergy there were other confessors 
licensed by the Bishop : A Penitentiary General for the whole 
diocese, 5 who was sometimes a Bishop ; a Penitentiary in each 
Cathedral Church ; Penitentiaries for Archdeaconries, for 
Deaneries or groups of Deaneries, and for Parishes or groups of 
Parishes. These were usually Friars. 

The Religious (monks and nuns) had their own confessors, 
and special confessors were assigned for the Clergy. The 
Beneficed Clergy often got licences to choose for themselves. 7 



1 Striking of clerks, falsification of Papal documents, burning of churches, saying 
mass in spite of interdict or excommunication, and simony. 

2 The following were excused going to Rome for absolution : a child, an old man, 
a sick person, a woman, a poor man, a monk, one who has enemies, and a door-keeper. 

3 See pp. 3, 19, 22, 31, 58, 92, 127, 131, 199, 212, 356. 

4 Most of these licences are for Lent, the busiest time for confessors. 

5 See pp. 3, 92, 131, 102, 199, 212, 356. 

6 See p. 98. 

7 The whole subject is very fully dealt with in Lea's History of Auricular 
Confession.

XVlii INTRODUCTION. 

XIII. THE REGISTER consists of 131 parchment leaves 
bound in sheep. The first 39 leaves measure about 1 1 by 8 inches, 
the rest about 13^ by 10 inches. It is in very good preservation, 
and there are few places where the writing is so worn and faint 
as to be illegible, nor are these of much importance. 

The entries extend from 26th September, 1360, to loth 
March, 1385, but include some documents of a much earlier date. 
Folios i and 2 contain the Register of the Vicars General ; 
3 to 37 Licences ; 38 to 80 General Acts, not in strictly chrono- 
logical order; 80 and 81 a Will, with several ecclesiastical 
bequests ; 82 to 131 Ordinations. 

XIV. THE ABSTRACT. The aim of the editor has been to 
condense, into as concise a form as might be, the whole matter of 
the original. The degree of condensation varies according to the 
nature of the entry. Where the facts are repeated several times, 
with slight variations or additions, in the various documents 
which go to make up the original entry, they have been reduced 
into one account, but in no case has the name of a person or 
place or any material fact been intentionally omitted.

[1368.] 

Dispensation to Richard Dalby, clerk, for defect of birth. 

Letter from Francis, Bishop of Florence, to the Bishop of Lich- 
field or his Vicar General, stating that Richard Dalby, the son of a 
bachelor and a single woman has been ensigned with the clerical 
character without mentioning this defect, that he is prevented by 
wars and the dangers of the road from coming in person to the 
Apostolic See, and petitions that he may have a dispensation to 
use the clerical character, to be promoted to all Orders, and to hold 
a benefice even with cure of souls. The said Bishop, therefore, 
by authority of the Pope, whose penitentiary care he exercises 
in the absence of Egidius, Priest Cardinal of S. Clement, major 
Penitentiary, commits the matter to the Bishop of Lichfield. If 
he finds that Richard Dalby is a suitable person, no imitator of 
his parents' incontinence, but of good conversation and life, and 
sufficiently literate, he may enjoin a suitable penance for his first 
excess (the taking upon him of the clerical character), and grant 
him a dispensation ; provided that on obtaining a benefice he 
undertakes to procede to all Orders and reside in his benefice. 
Otherwise the dispensation to be void. Dated Avinion, vj. Id., 
Dec., 3rd year of Innocent VI. 

The Bishop of Lichfield's enquiries being satisfactory, he 
grants the dispensation. Dated London, 2Oth May, 1368.

Commission to interdict the commonalty, town, and Parish 
Church of Repyndon [Repton]. The Bishop in the course of 
his visitation lately came to the Priory of Repyndon. Certain 
satellites of Satan, the whole commonalty of the town, with 
swords and staves, bows and arrows, noise and tumult, while 
we were actually engaged in visiting in the Chapter house, 
came and villainously hindered and alarmed us and our clerks. 
They rushed up to the gates of the priory and attacked without 
cause one of our household who was there ; then, having broken 
down the gates we keeping humbly and harmlessly within 
they presumed in their malice to besiege the priory with con- 
tinual going about it from the eleventh hour of that day till 
the first hour of the day following, and shot through the win- 
dows of the chamber where we were, with utter indifference 
and inhumanity at us or any of our servants. And neither we 
nor any of our household could go out of the gates meanwhile 
for fear of death, or at least of grievous bodily harm, until the 
noble Sir Alueric de Sulny, knight, and Robert Fraunceys 
came, and by their power and counsel directed our feet into the 
way of peace. Thus these malefactors wickedly violated the King's Fol> 46- 
peace and that of the Church and Realm of England ; and their 
ill doings are become notorious throughout the diocese. We, 
therefore, pass sentence of major excommunication on all 
members of the community who were in any way to blame, 
and do not utterly abhor their detestable and inhuman per- 
tinacity, and, in order to punish so unspeakable a crime, we 
place the commonalty and parish church of the said town under 
an interdict, and warn all, under pain of excommunication, that 
the said malefactors, their aiders and abettors, are excommunicate,

Commission from the Bishop, as the Pope's deputy, to the 
official of the Archdeaconry of Coventry, informing him that 
the Abbot and Convent of Leicester have refused to pay in 
respect of the churches which they hold in the said Arch- 
deaconry the tenth granted by the clergy of the province of 
Canterbury to Pope Innocent VI. He is commanded under 
pain of excommunication to go to the said churches and publish 
monitions, which may come to the notice of the said Abbot and 
Convent, that the tenth must be paid within a month from the 
date of the monition. 

The Bishop in his visitation found the chancels and rectory 
houses of the said appropriated churches dilapidated. The 
official is therefore to warn them that the necessary repairs must 
be done within a year from the date of his monition under 
pain of a fine of 100 marks to the fabric of the Church of 
Lichfield. 

He is also to warn them to pay in respect of the said 
churches the caritative subsidy 1 granted to the Bishop by the 
clergy of the diocese.

Whalley, within the bounds of which it is. That the said 
church was and is appropriated to the said Abbot and Convent, 
formerly at Stanlowe 1 and afterwards transferred to the 
Monastery of Whalley, and that they have ever since the 
annexation received the fruits and profits of the said church and 
chapel the portion of the Vicar of the Church alone excepted. 
But Sir John de Stafford now claims the said chapel, though he 
has no right to it. The Bishop, to whom the official committed 
the case, has neglected to do justice, and the Abbot and 
Convent have complained again. He is now, with all due 
reverence, commanded either to do justice in the matter within 
15 days, or to cite Sir John de Stafford to appear before the 
said court in the Church of S. Mary de Arcubus, 2 London, on 
the day next after the 15 days are elapsed, and to report the 
receipt of the official's letter, and his action in the matter of 
citation. 

The Bishop reports -that he is prevented from hearing the

not find the party complained of, and so must be excused from 
citing him. Dated Heywode, x. Kal. Mart, same year.

Modification of the statutes of the Chantry, founded, 
with the consent of Bp. Roger, the Bishop's immediate 
predecessor, and the other persons interested, in the Parish 
Church of Chesterfield, by Roger de Chesterfield, Rector of 
Wykyngeston, Lincoln Diocese. 

Owing to the scarcity of chaplains caused by the late 
plague, and the consequent difficulty in finding honest, 
circumspect, and literate persons in Priest's orders to take the cure 
and rule of the said Chantry, the Bishop, at the request of the 
founder, and with the consent of the chaplain, ds Roger de 
Hanneley, having taken counsel with those learned in law, and 
invoked the grace of the Holy Spirit, makes the following 
modification of the original ordination of the said chantry : 

1. It was ordained that "the chaplain wearing a surplice 
shall say Matins and the other Hours daily in the choir of the 
said church with the Vicar or Parochial chaplains." This requires 
continual residence. It is modified to " only on Sundays and 
double feasts, on other days he may say the Hours in the church 
or other honest place, by himself or with others. So that he be 
not absent more than 2 1 days a year, and find another chaplain 
to celebrate for him in his absence." 

2. It was ordained that " the rents and goods of the chantry, 
after the deduction of necessary expenses, shall be expended to 
the use of the chantry and not otherwise." The chaplain holds 



1365] BISHOP ROBERT DE STRETTON. IO? 

the chantry as a benefice, and is entitled to receive the rents and 
profits, and to dispose by will of what he has received. He is 
however to set aside in a chest with two locks a sum of 6s. %d. 
a year in aid of the repairs of the house belonging to the 
chantry. 

3. It was ordained that " the chaplain shall bind himself to 
take no other office or service." This is to be understood as 
meaning only such as are incompatible with the obligations of 
the chantry. 

4. The expression "the chaplain shall avoid taverns 
altogether and shall not go to the house of any for that 
purpose," is to be understood ' that he shall not have any such 
custom.' 

5. It was ordained that " the chaplain shall say every day 
after Matins before Mass the Seven and Fifteen Psalms 1 with 
the Litany and accustomed Prayers ; and after dinner the 
Office of the Dead with the Nine Psalms. 2 And every day 
at the tomb of the Founder's father and mother he shall 
say in the audience of the bystanders the ' De Profundis ' 3 
with the Prayers and other things there expressed." This is 
modified as follows : " He is to say daily before his Mass the 
Seven Psalms with the Litany and accustomed Prayers when he 
conveniently can. Also daily the Office of the Dead 
according to the Use of Sarum, except when honestly hindered. 
And also daily the Psalm ' De Profundis ' with the Prayers 
there ' Inclina ' and ' Fidelium,' 4 immediately after Mass, before 
the altar and not necessarily at the said tomb." The statutes 
thus modified to hold good. Dated Heywode, 8th May, 1365.

being neither married nor in Holy Orders, will be faithful to S. 
Peter, and the Holy Roman Church, and my Lord Pope Urban 
V. and his successors, and will not advise, assist, consent to or 
favour anything whereby they may lose life or limb, or take any 
harm. I will not reveal their counsel, which they may manifest 
to me, to any person to their hurt. If anything come to my 
notice which may turn to the danger or hurt of the Pope, I will 
hinder it to the best of my power, and if I cannot, will take care 
that it be brought to the Pope's notice. The Roman Papacy, 
the sovereignty of S. Peter, and the rights of the said Church, I 
will help, defend, preserve and restore, especially in my native 
state or land. I will exercise the office of a Notary faithfully. 
In making contracts I will neither add nor take away anything 
by which the substance of the contract is altered without 
the consent of the party or parties concerned. I will not 
make an instrument concerning any contract in which I

Decree issued to the Prioress and Convent of Farewell in 
consequence of dissensions revealed at the Bishop's visitation. 

No nun may go to Lichfield without the Prioress' leave, and 
must be accompanied by two other nuns, and make no vain or 
wanton delays. The Prioress is not to show any partiality in 
the granting of leave. 

The nuns are not to go outside the bounds of the Priory 
without the leave of the Prioress or her locum tenens. This is

not intended to interfere with the laudable custom of the whole 
or greater part of the convent walking out together on certain 
days to take the air. Silence is to be observed within the 
bounds at the proper times, and delinquents are to be corrected 
by the Prioress. 

No secular women of any condition, except necessary 
servants, are to dwell within the bounds of the house without 
the Bishop's leave. If there are any such they are to be 
removed before the feast of the Purification next. 

The nuns are to observe their threefold vow to live in Foi. 54. 
chastity and obedience and to reckon nothing their own. The 
Prioress is to report transgressors to the Bishop for punishment. 

The Prioress and other office-holders are to give an account 
of their administration at least once a year, to the whole 
convent or the senior nuns. 

No nun is to keep with her for education more than one 
child, nor any male child over seven years of age, and even that 
may not be done without the Bishop's leave. If any have 
more they are to be removed before the feast of the Purification 
next. 

The daily distribution of food to the several nuns has tended 
to impoverish the House. The Prioress and the whole Convent 
are to eat together in the Prioress' Hall. The only fire is to be 
that in the building assigned for the infirmary, called the 
" Gesthall," except in cases of sickness or other reasonable 
cause. 

The Prioress and Convent are not to make grants of lands, 
rents, or tenements, without consulting the Bishop, and if so 
made they are void. 

The convent is to be summoned and this decree read and 
explained in the vulgar tongue by some literate ecclesiastical 
person on the day after its receipt ; and the Prioress is to report 
to the Bishop any who disregard it. Dated Heywode, xij. Kal. 
Jan. 1367, and the 8th year of. the Bishop's consecration.

Fol. 54. b. Edict of Pope Urban. For the better provision for the cure 
of souls and Divine worship, he annuls all unions or annexations 
of ecclesiastical benefices of every sort, such as priories, dignities, 
parsonages, offices, portions, incomes, 1 parish and rural churches, 
to any other ecclesiastical dignities or benefices, such as cathedral 
churches, monasteries, bishops' or abbots' tables, whether made 
by papal, ordinary, or other authority, and decrees that the 
ordinaries shall not permit any other such unions to be made 
for 10 years. Dated Avinion, Kal. Apr. the 5th year of his

Modification of the ordinances of the Chantry founded by 
Philip de Turvill, sometime canon of Lichfield, in the Church 
of Bedeworth. It was ordained that the chantry be served by 
Fol. 55. a. a secular chaplain presented by the Prior and Convent of 
Erdebury. 2 Owing to the smallness of the endowment no 
secular chaplain will accept it. The Bishop therefore ordains 
that the said Prior and Convent shall serve the chantry by one 
of their Canons regular. Dated Heywode, v. Id. Mart. 1368. 

Consent of the Chapter of Lichfield, the Deanery being 
vacant, given in their Chapter House. 

Ordination of the Vicarage of Audeley. Bishop Roger, as 
appears in his register, annexed the Parish Church of Audeley 
to the Monastery of Hulton, reserving a suitable portion of 
its profits for a perpetual vicar, as was required by Papal 
Letters. But the vicarage has not hitherto been ordained. 

The Vicar is to have for his dwelling the house on the west 
side of the church, lately in the holding of Richard, called le 
Coupere, and all the glebe of land and meadow belonging to 

1 praestimonium, " an ecclesiastical benefice with any burden on it, "or rather "an 
annual rent for the maintenance of a priest, not conferring any ecclesiastical title."

the church, and shall pay no tithe of wool from his sheep thereon. 
He shall receive the whole tithe of sheaves of the village of 
Hallemore, of wool and lambs of the village of Betteley, and 
all mortuaries from these villages and the whole parish ; also 
the tithe of hay of the whole parish, except the township of 
Audeley ; also all the lesser tithes and Lenten alms, 1 viz. : 
arrears of white or milk food and foals of the whole parish/- 
together with personal tithes" in any way due from any 
parishioners, and Peter's Pence. Also all oblations in money or 
in wax when women are purified on the feast of the Purification, 
and at funerals, and otherwise offered, and the pence at the 

1 or Easter offerings (Quadragesimales). 

2 Albi seu lacticiniorum pullanorum reragii totius parochie. Albas is a word of 
many meanings, here it appears to mean albus cibtis, i.e., eggs and dairy produce. 
Lacticinia = milk food, i.e., cheese and butter (and sometimes milk). FuUanns 
= a colt or foal. The small tithe might be paid either in kind or in money 
according to a scale agreed upon. If in kind, every tenth cheese or foal, &c., would 
be taken. It is easy to see how arrears would arise under this system. The 
number of titheable things was not likely to be ten or a multiple of ten every year. 
The receiver of tithe would then either wait for the next tenth thing, or make a 
composition thus : if, for example, tithe was due on six foals, he would either receive 
one foal and give back four-tenths of the recognised value of a foal, or he would 
receive six-tenths of the value of a foal in money. See the following extracts from 
documents in the Appendix to the Register of Walter Gray, Archbishop of York, 
1215-1255. (Surtees Society, 1870.) Ordination of Vicarages of Churches belonging 
to the Deanery of York, p. 214. " Decimam butiri, casei, vitulorum, porcellorum, et 
pullorum equinorum, dicimus tantum caseos integros ad decimam venientes et 
butirum modo simili obveniens, necnon et vitulos, porcellos, et pullos equinos, per

Fol. 55. b. Dimission to the Abbot and convent of Hales Oweyn, Order 
of Premonstratensians, Worcester Diocese, to hold the Church of 
Walshale with its Chapels of Wednesbury and Russhale. 

The Bishop finding in his visitation that the said church and 
chapels were appropriated to the said monastery, called upon 
the said religious men to prove their title. They appeared by 
their proxy, Fr. John de Bermyncham, Canon of the said 
monastery, before the Bishop's commissary, Master Richard 
de Bermyncham, sitting in Lichfield Cathedral, who having 
Fol. 56. a. heard their evidences, appointed Tuesday after the feast of 
SS. Perpetua and Felicity for pronouncing final sentence. 
His sentence was in favour of the monastery. The said church 
with its dependent chapels had been annexed to the said 
monastery from time immemorial, and served by one of the 
Canons of the said house, whom the said monastery presented. 
The appropriation had been sanctioned by the Pope, the Arch- 
bishop of Canterbury, and the Bishop of Coventry and Lichfield. 

The Bishop therefore confirms it, and orders a record of 
these proceedings to be registered, together with his commission 
to Master Richard de Bermyncham his official, dated Heywode,

which copy was witnessed by dss. William Rysyng and Thomas 
Grocer, chaplains, of London Diocese, and certified by Nicholas 
de Haddelye, clerk, of Meath (Miden) Diocese, Notary Public. 

The Bull is addressed to the Provincial Prior and Brethren of 
the Order of Hermits of S. Augustine in England, and gives 
permission to set up houses of the Order in four more cities 
or towns in any fit places given by the faithful or otherwise 
justly acquired, and to build in them a church, chapel, or oratory 
with cemetery, bell-tower, and bells, a house and other necessary 
buildings, provided the Diocesan of the place consents, and 
12 brethren of the Order can always be maintained there, 
saving always the rights of parish and other churches, and 
notwithstanding the constitution of Boniface VIII. forbidding 
Religious to beg and receive new places. These new houses 
when established shall enjoy the same privileges as those already 
existing. 

The Bishop consents to the establishment of a house at

collation having devolved upon him through the fault of the 
Prior and Convent of S. Oswald, in York diocese, the patrons, 
in presenting an unfit person, [oaths etc., as before.] " 

The words in the Institution. " Vicar in ecclcsia" etc., and in 
the collation " ecclesiain sub nomine parochialis ecclesie" etc., are 
plainly in a different hand and ink from the rest. 

The original ordinations of the said Vicarage both by 
Bishop Alexander, 1 dated Lichfeld, v. Non. Mart. 1331 [1231], 
and Bishop Roger, 2 dated Heywode, iv. Id. Feb. 1347, [1247] were 
produced. Also the Register of Bishop Roger de Meuland, 3 by 
which it appears that Id. Aug. 1385 [1285] John de Meseley, 
priest, was instituted to the Vicarage of the Church of Wynwhyk 
at the presentation of the Prior and Convent of Nostell, and 
swore obedience and continual residence. 

Also in the Register of Bishop Roger (the last Bishop) it 
appears that Fr. Geoffry de Burgh, priest, Canon of the 
Monastery of S. Oswald, was instituted Vicar in the said 
Vicarage of Wynwyk and swore residence. 

Other acts in the same Register were inspected from which 
it appeared that, according to the constitutions of the Legates, 
only Vicars swore residence and Rectors did not. 

Certain Registers of the Community of the Church of 
Lichfield were produced, and were seen to be written in the 
same hand and ink as the new writing in the erasures under 
consideration. 

Fol. 60. b. Depositions of witnesses : ds. Adam de Ingestre, priest, 
aged 40 and upwards, said that he knew well the hand in which 
the words " ecclesia " etc. were newly written in the Registers of 
Bishops Walter and Roger ; it was the hand of John de 
Leycestr', late clerk of the Chapter of Lichfield. The original

word was undoubtedly " Vicaria" etc., and this is confirmed by 
the margin, where it is " Vicarie de Wynnequyk," " Collatio 
Vicarie de Wynnequyk." 

Ds. Nicholas de Wynley, priest, aged 40 and upwards, 
Fr. Henry Swan, priest, aged 36 and upwards. Thomas Faleyn, 
priest, aged 38 and upwards, and John de Cromford, priest, 
Vicar Choral of Lichfield Cathedral, aged 30 and upwards, gave 
similar testimony. 

The Commissary therefore pronounced the new writing and 
erasures false, and that the word " vicaria " etc., ought to be 
restored in place of "ecclesia " etc. 

The original ordination of Bishop Alexander is as follows : 
" Alexander, etc. Since the Prior and Convent of S. Oswald of 
Nostell have committed to us the Churches of Lemynton 1 and 
Wynwyk of which they have the patronage, requesting us to 
provide out of the fruits of the said Churches both for the 
community of the Church of Lichfield and for them : We, 
considering the poverty of both bodies, ordain that the Prior 
and Convent shall, on a vacancy, present a suitable priest for 
institution as Vicar of the Church of Wynwhyk, who shall 
receive all the fruits of the said Church, and pay to the 
community of the Church of Lichfield a sum of money to be 
fixed by us or our successors, and the same sum to the Prior 
and Convent, when Robert the present Rector shall die or move 
away, and that meanwhile the pension of 50^., which the Prior 
and Convent receive from the said church, shall be equally 
divided between them and the community of the Church of 
Lichfield. 

The Church of Lemynton being now vacant, we thus 
ordain a vicarage of it. The Vicar shall receive all the fruits 
and pay 1 5 marks yearly to the community of the Church of 
Lichfield, one moiety at Christmas and the other at the feast 
of S. John the Baptist, and a similar pension to the Prior and 
Convent. 

And, because the Archdeacon of Coventry receives a part 
of the fruits of the churches of his Archdeaconry by their 
vacancy, the Vicar shall pay him I mark [yearly], but shall net 

1 Leamington Priors, Warwk.

thereby be freed from any other Archidiaconal customs. If the 
Prior and Convent present a man who is not a priest, the 
presentation shall devolve upon the Bishop for that turn. 
Dated Lichfield, v. Non. Mart. 1231."

like a bishop standing in his pontificals, and these letters 
round ALEXANDER DEI GRA COVENTRF.NSIS ET LICHEFELD

The Ordination of Bishop Roger is as follows: Roger etc. 
Since the Prior and Convent of Nostle have committed to us 
the Church of Wynwyk, in which they have the right of 
patronage, and from which the Dean and Chapter of Lichfield 
receive a pension of 25^. by the Ordination of Bishop 
Alexander, We ordain a Vicarage [in similar terms to the 
ordination of the Vicarage of Lemynton above]. The vicar to 
pay to the community of the Church of Lichfield 24 marks a 
year, 12 at Christmas and 12 at the feast of S.John Baptist, 
and a similar pension of 24 marks to the Prior and Convent, 
and a sum of I mark yearly to the Archdeacon of Chester. 
The portion in the church assigned to John de Helm is to be 
paid by the Dean and Chapter, the Prior and Convent, and the 
Vicar, in equal portions, until his cession or decease. Dated

with many benefits, honours, and liberties, wishes to substitute 
the Church of Terue [Tarvin] for that of Burtone in Wirehale 
as a prebend in our Church so that the Rectors of Terve shall

I36l] BISHOP ROBERT DE STRETTON. 133 

lawfully cited and appeared before the Bishop to show his 
title. 

He produced a Bull of Pope Innocent VI. directed to the 
official of Hereford, stating that the said canonry and prebend 
was formerly held by William de Driffeld, who died recently at 
the Apostolic See. It was long ago decreed that the disposal of 
all canonries and other benefices which fell vacant at the 
Apostolic See be reserved to the Pope. The Pope therefore 
orders the official to see that Nicholas de Heth, Canon of 
London, if after due examination he prove suitable, be put in 
possession of the said canonry and prebend, to the exclusion 
of all other claimants, notwithstanding the fact that he holds 
canonries and prebends in London and Hereford, the portion of Fol. 63. a. 
Overhalle in the Church of Leddebury, and the Parish Church 
of Hodinet, in Hereford and Lichfield dioceses. Dated Avinion, 
iij. Id. Aug., the ninth year of his pontificate.

Heyford, clerk, of Durham diocese, Notary Public, certifying 
that on Jan. 2, 1361, Nicholas de Heth appeared before the

Chapter House of Lichfield Cathedral Church, and produced 
letters from John de Brouughton, official of Hereford, sole 
executor of the above Bull, to the Bishop and Dean and 
Chapter of Lichfield, informing them that he has collated the 
said Nicholas to the said canonry and prebend, and requiring 
them to receive him into their fraternity and put him in 
possession of his stall in the choir and place in the chapter and 
all the rights and profits thereto belonging. Sealed, at the 
request of the official, by Loudowic, Bishop of Hereford, 1 and 
dated Oxford, 2 Dec. 1361. The locum tenens of the Dean 
and Chapter admitted and inducted the said Nicholas as 
required. These things were done in the presence of ds. John 
de Codyngham, succentor, and John de Henton, Notary 
Public.

Appointment of Master John dc Outheby, LL.B., John de

and severally, to be the Bishop's proctors and messengers for 
presenting to John, Archbishop of York, 1 and Legate of the

appeal of Master Richard de Tyso from the court of the official 
of Canterbury to the Apostolic See, and to act on the Bishop's

Fol. 64. a. Report of the process for dissolution of marriage between 
John, son of John de Ardene, Kt., and Cecilia, daughter of 
Nicholas de Eton, Kt., 2 recorded in the registers of the Arch- 
deacons of Chester, sent by the Archdeacon's official, under date 
Chester, viij. Id. Feb. 1377, in response to a mandate from 
the Bishop dated xj. Kal. Feb. 1377. 

Acts held in the Collegiate Church of S. John, Chester, on 
the Thursday after the feast of S. James the Apostle 1332, 
before Master Thomas Euyas, official of the Archdeacon of 
Chester. John, son of John de Ardene, appeared by his proctor 
Hugh le Venables, and Cecilia by her proctor Robert de 
Oldom. (The instruments of authorisation are given at length. 
John's is dated Macclesfeld, xv. Kal. Aug. 1332, and sealed 
by the Dean of the deanery of Macclesfeld, because John's 

Fol. 64. b. own seal is unknown to many. Cecilia's is dated Medio 
Wico [Middlewich], xij. Kal. Aug. 1332, and sealed with the 
seal of the Dean of the deanery of Christianity, Medii Wici.) 
The libel, supported by the evidence of witnesses who had 
known the parties from their infancy, was that they were 
married in the face of the Church when under marriageable age, 
John being about II, that John always said he would not con- 
sent, and moved the question of dissolution directly he came of 
age ; that these facts are well known in the Parishes of Aide- 
ford, Stopport, and Prestbury and the neighbourhood. The

Cecilia's mother. Joan de Stokport married first Sir Nich. de Eton, and afterwards

Recognition about diverse marriage contracts made by Fol. 65. a. 
William Thikncs, in order to establish the succession of his right 
heirs after his death. 

22nd Sep. 1378, before the Bishop sitting as a tribunal in the 

chapel of his manor of Heywod at the hour of prime in the 

presence of a notary and witnesses, William Thiknes, of noble 

birth (doniicellus), aged 70 and upwards, appeared and declared 

that when he was 12 he married of his own free will 

Elizabeth Cune, [Coyney] aged 8, and they regarded each other 

as husband and wife. When he was 20, moved by what spirit 

he knew not, he was secretly married without saying anything 

about his former marriage to Katherine Swynnerton ; the 

ceremony was performed in the oratory of his manor of Thiknes 

by the chaplain who was then ministering there. Banns were 

not published and the required solemnities of law were omitted. 

By Katherine he had offspring, William and Eve, still surviving, 

and seven other sons and daughters now dead. All this time 

Elizabeth was alive and not divorced, being at once a maid and 

a wife, as she affirmed to her confessor at the time of her death. 

When Katherine died, he married publicly, after banns, Margery 

de Audeley, who is still surviving, and by her had offspring, who 

are now regarded as his right heirs. He said that he made this 

statement not from hate or love of any of his sons or daughters, 

but that all might have justice, and he prayed that a record 

should be made of the facts, which the Bishop ordered to be 

done. Dated Heywod, 7th Oct. 1378 (the nineteenth year of Fol. 65. b. 

the Bishop's consecration).

This ordination shall also be read on that day in full chapter, 
that the soul of Abbot Thomas may be had in memory and

devoutly serve God, and pray for the soul of Abbot Thomas for

Appropriation of the Church of Schotteswell to the monastery 
of Lavenden, Order of Premonstratensians and Diocese of Lincoln, 
by Simon de Sudburia, Archbishop of Canterbury and Legate of 
the Apostolic see, by authority of a bull of Pope Urban VI., dated 
Rome, at S. Peter's, Id. Nov. the 2nd year of his papacy. 

The bull states that Pope Clement VI. was requested by the 
abbot and convent to authorise the appropriation on the ground 
that the monastery was reduced to poverty and burdened with 
debt owing to its great expenses in hospitality and relief of the 
poor, by reason of its situation on the public street, and in repair 
of the church and buildings. The patronage of the Parish 
Church of Schotteswell belonged to the monastery, and its 
yearly value was not more than eight marks, according to the 
taxation value. He ordered that the appropriation should take 
effect on the cession or decease of the then rector, and that the 
diocesan should settle what portion of the fruits and profits 
should be assigned for the vicar, so that he might be suitably 
maintained and exercise hospitality and support the burdens 
incumbent on him.

Pope Gregory XL, who succeeded Clement VI. and immedi- Fol. 67. b. 
atcly preceded Urban, before this union took effect, revoked all 
unions of parish churches or other benefices to monasteries or 
other places. He ordered Simon, who was then Bishop of 
London, to enquire into the circumstances of the case and 
report to him, but died before the report arrived. 

Pope Urban therefore empowers the Archbishop to grant a 
dimission for the union if warranted by the circumstances, with 
the consent of the diocesan and others whose leave is required, 
and to settle the portion to be assigned to the Vicar. 

The Archbishop finds the facts to be as stated and decrees Fol. 68. a. 
that on the cession or decease of the present Rector the Abbot 
and convent shall take possession. Dated Northampton, Lin-

Appropriation of the Church of Kynfarc (Kinver) in the Fol. 70. a.

of Cistercians, diocese of Worcester. The Abbot and Convent 
plead poverty. Their chief endowment is in land and agriculture,

compelled to borrow, and cannot satisfy their creditors without 
selling their possessions and so incurring permanent loss. They

de Prestewych, woman, of Coventry and Lichfield Diocese 
praying for a dispensation on the following grounds. In her 
eighth year or thereabouts certain of her friends compelled her 
against her will to enter the Priory of Nuns of Seton, Order of 
S. Augustine, and to take on her the habit of a novice. She 
remained there as in a prison for several years, always 
protesting that she never had made, nor ever would willingly 
make any profession. And then, seeing that she must by 
profession be excluded from her inheritance, she feigned 
herself sick and took to her bed. But this did not prevent 
her being carried to the church, at the instance of her rivals, 
and blessed by a monk, in spite of her cries and protests that 
she would not remain in that priory, or in any other Order. On 
the first opportunity she went forth from the priory, without 
leave, and returned to the world, which in heart she had never

of the said John from the font at baptism. A divorce would 
cause damage and scandal.

before him, granted them a dispensation, and declared all their

EXPLANATORY NOTE. 

The list of the first Ordination is printed in full. In subsequent lists the words 
" to the title of" and " to the Order of" or " to [ all ] Orders " are represented by a 
line, e.g. " Thomas de Schirley to the title of the House of Beauchief to all Orders" 
is printed " Thos. de Schirley House of Beauchief all." 
Abbreviations are used as follows : 
For Christian and other names, the conventional abbreviations. 

diac. or d. =diaconate. O. = Order, Order of. 

dio. = diocese. p. = priesthood. 

Fr. , Frr. = Friar, Friars. subd. or s. = subdiaconate. 

l.d. Letters dimissory.

Abbreviations are chiefly in the titles of Religious Houses, or Orders, e.g. H.S.J. = 
Hospital of S. John, or James ; O.S.A. Order of S. Augustine. The omission of the 
words " House of " must not be taken to imply that the title to Orders is given by 
Parochial Clergy. 

Names of places or origin, e.g. " de Schirley" "of Litherpoll" ate printed as in 
the original, except by inadvertance, or in the case of very well-known places.

The spelling of the original is given at least once, afterwards sometimes the ancient 
and sometimes the modern is used. A list of Religious Houses occurring in this

Orders were not celebrated in the diocese on the Saturday on which

appeared before the Bishop at Heywode on that day seeking to be 
ordained Deacon, because otherwise he could not be ordained Priest

known, the underwritten persons upon whom he had laid his hands were, 
for greater security, reordained conditionally if, that is to say, and in so 
far as they were not duly ordained by the said William on Saturday of

The credentials of Robert, Bishop of Sevastopalis^ 
Urban, Bishop, servant of the servants of the Lord, to our beloved 
son Robert de Hyntlisham, elect of Sevastopalis, greeting and apostolic 
benediction. Among the various anxieties by which we are constantly 
burdened, a specially pressing one is that the state of the churches 
committed by divine providence to our care may be both spiritually and 
temporally augmented. Over those churches which are known to be 
destitute of pastors and to deplore their vacancy, we study to set such 
ministers as shall by their rule promote this object. Whereas when 
William was presiding as Bishop over the Church of Sevastopalis, our 
predecessor, Pope Gregory XI, desiring that when it fell vacant a useful 
and fit person should be provided for it by the Apostolic See, specially 
reserved the provision for that turn to his own appointment and disposal ; 
and whereas afterwards the said church by the death of the said William, 
which happened away from the Roman Curia, was left without a pastor, 

1 Notgrove, Gls. 

2 The Papal provision is given at some length because of the incongruity of its 
language with actual fact. Sevastopalis, whether in Pontus, Colchis, or Tauris, was 
outside the jurisdiction of the Pope, and there was not the slightest chance of its 
titular Bishop ever visiting it. 



346 ORDINATION LISTS. 

and it pleased God to remove our said predecessor from our midst 
before he had provided for it : we, who have been raised to his lofty 
place, the vacancy having been certified to us, and the decree of 
reservation being a bar to action in the matter by anyone except the 
Roman Pontiff, not wishing the said church to be exposed to the 
inconveniences of a long vacancy, in our fatherly care and zeal, after 
diligent deliberation with our brethren, have at length turned the eyes 
of our mind upon thee, professed of the order of Friars of B. Mary ot 
Mount Carmel, and in Priest's orders, of whose religious zeal, scholarship, 
honesty of life and morals, and other manifold gifts and virtues we have 
been assured, and, after due weighing of all, have accepted thy person, 
and by the counsel of our said brethren do provide thee to the said 
church, and do set thee over it as Bishop, and commit to thee the 
pastoral care and administration, in Him who giveth grace and bestoweth 
rewards, trusting that, the right hand of the Lord assisting thee, the 
said church may be directed into prosperity and happiness under thy 
rule, and, the Lord giving health, may receive both spiritual and 
temporal increment. Wherefore we commit to thy discretion, as a charge 
laid on thee by the Lord, the care and administration of the rule of the 
said church ; may'st thou so devoutly take it up, so healthfully carry it on, 
and so pursue it to its close, that the said church may rejoice that it has 
been committed to a fruitful administrator, and that thou may'st, beside 
the reward of eternal retribution, deserve to obtain the favour and 
blessing of us and the Apostolic See. Dated Rome, at S. Maria in the 
Transtiburine, iij. Non. Nov., the first year of our pontificate. 

Letters patent of Philip, Priest-Cardinal of S. Susanna, stating that, 
in accordance with a mandate of Pope Urban VI, Friar Robert 
Hyntlisham of the Order of Carmelites, elect of Sevastopalis, was 
consecrated Bishop by John, Bishop Caven., Boniface, Bishop Nepissin., 
and Anthony, Bishop Scutaren., in the Church of S. John de Pinea, in 
the presence of the said Cardinal and the witnesses under written : 
Master Ed. Bronfeild, monk of S. Ed. de Beri., O.S.B., Master 
in Theology, ds. Christopher de Maironibus, Licentiate in Decrees, 
Canon of the Church of the Prince of the Apostles in the city, and our 
Auditor, Friar Nicholas de Luca, Order of Carmelites, Master in 
Theology, Friar William Voappol of the Order of Carmelites, ds. Henry 
Volram, Canon of Voachen., Stephen de Voachen, Master in Arts, Friar
