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

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

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

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

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

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

publisher to a library and finally to you.

them to Aberden in Scotland, and delivered the wool and merchandise 
aforesaid to other Flemings who were then with the king's enemies there, 
by whom they were afterwards carried to Flanders, the king wrote to the 
count of Flanders requesting him to hear the complaint of the said mer-

orders the said bailiffs to retain goods to the value of 100/. out of the goods 
of Flemings lately arrested by them at his order, although the king's order

John de Thorp and William de Morwode, clerk, that Bobert Malet 
formerly founded the said priory, and that it is subject to the abbey of 
Bernay {Berniaco) in Normnndj, as a cell thereof, so that neither a prior 
nor a monk ought to be msde therein without the assent of the abbot of

that Philip Pertrich held oE the king at his death divers lands in Estwode

was indicted for carrying away and receiving certain of the king's goods 
in that castle, on which account the said ministers arrested him at Chire- 
bury in the county of Salop, and took him out of that county to the said 
castle and imprisoned him there because he would not answer before them 
according to Welsh law, although he is not a W^eishmau &.nd does not hold 
any lands by reason whereof he ought be be judged according to Welbh 
law, and detained him in prison until he found mainpernors to have him 
before the constable to answer to the king within three days of summons.

king concerning the premises, and is ordered to release the said Thomas or

daughter of the said Robert, the said Margaret and Isabella, who were 
born and baptized in Scotland, having proved their age before William 
de Bevercotes, chancellor of Scotland, and the king having taken homage 
for Margaret's purparty, as it appears to theking that Margaret and Isabella 
were under age when the late king granted, whilst in Scotland, to John 
Comyn of Ba<ienauh, for himself and his men of Scotland who had been at 
war with the late king, that their lives and limbs should be saved, that they

To the sheriffs of London. Whereas, at the complaint of Philip de 
Leghton, burgess of Ipswich, that the castellan of the town of St. Valery 
had arrested and detained a ship of his called * la Creade^ of the value of 
50/., in the port of St. Valery, the late king frequently requested the ctount 
of Dreux, lord of that town, to do justice to Philip for the ship and tackle 
and for his damages, which amounted to 40/. sterling, but the count did 
nothing in the matter, as appears hy the testimony of the bailiffs and 
burgesses of Ipswich by their letters patent; by reason whereof Philip 
recovered, by divers of the late king's writs to the sheriffs of London and 
Southampton, 20/. 8*. \0d. from men of the count's power, as appears by 
the return of the writs in the late king's chancery ; the king lately ordered 
them to arrest goods of the men of St. Valery to the value of 69/. 11*. 2c/., 
the remainder of the .•*um due to Philip, and they have returned that they 
have arrested a ship, value 15 marks, half of which belongs to Waleric la 
Joune and half to Matthew Bryan, burgesses of St. Valery, and the tackle 
and cargo (frettum) of the same, value four marks; and Waleric nnd 
Matthew afterwards asserted in chancery that the arrest was unjustly made, 
the said Philip asserting the contrary ; whereu|M)n the king ordered the 
8hip, tackle, and cargo to be deliveied lo Waleric and Matthew by the 
mainprize of Philip de Beauveys, Roger de Lcnn, and James Pe de Lu, of 
London, who mainperned in chancery to answer ibr the above 19 marks to 
the said Philip de Leghton if they were adjudged to him : the king, as it 
does not appear to him that the process in this mntter begun and approved 
in the late king's time, as appears by the rolls of his chancery, ought to be 
cancelled (irritari) or annulled without deliberation of greater counsel, 
now orders the said eherilfs to compel the mainpernors to satisfy Philip 
for the said 19 marks, in part satisfaction of the aforesaid 69/. [11*. 2</.], 
saving to the said Waleric and Matthew their challenges when they will 
speak hereof at another time.

2c?. a day for each of the berners, veutrers and bercelettars, and \d, a day 
for each of the dogs, greyhounds, and bercelets, for so long as they shidl 
stay in his bailiwick. By bill of the wardrobe. 

To John Abel, escheator this side Trent. Order not to intermeddle 
further with the lands of William Romyn, and to restore the issues of the

nothing of the king in chief at his death by reason whereof the custody of 
his lands ought to pertain to the king. 

To the sheriff of Lincoln. Order to pny to Peter de Storce 215/. 9«. 6d,

his wife were jointly enfeoffed of these lands by Richard de Keston, clerk,

king but of divers other lords, and that Ada continued her joint-seisin

of his wife's inheritance, by which inquisition it appears that he held nothing 
in chief as of the crown, but tliat he held divers lands of other lords in

the goo<ls seixed in England were insuilicient for the payment of tlie English- 
men for their goods seized in Flanders, then tho eount should make good the 
deficiency, with like clause for restitution by the king in case the English 
goods seized in Flanders were insutfi(!<ont to satisfy the Flemish merchants 
for their goods seized in Entrland ; and it was found by inquisitions that the 
goods of the merchants of Enn:land, In^land and Wales seized hy the 
countess were worth 4,0()0/. sterling more than the Flemish goods seized in 
England ; which sum the count, did not {my, although often I'equei'ted to do 
so ; wliereupon the late king ordered that 730 marks in which the mayor and 
community of the city of London were bound to certain burgesses of Gh*»nt 
on behalf of Henry III., which lie found deposited in a certain place, should 
be distributed to th(% said p]nglish merchants in part payment of the above

wrote to him requesting him to do speedy justice to the said citizens : 
liecause the said count has not done justice to them, as appears by the 
letters patent of the mayor and community of the city of London, the king 
now orders the sheriffs to nrreiit goods of the men of Ghent to the value en

Richard's ship as above, and that seventeen of them took the ship to Scot-

adding that he would willingly eDijnire into the matter and grievously 
punish those who should be found guilty, and would cause his goods to be re- 
stored to the merchnnt; the king now requests him to do what he has 
promised without further delay. The king has neve'- refneed \a do justice

wood unfit for timber together with the remainder of the felled trees that

regards any alienation made by the said John as void and being unwilling

the treasurer and barons of the exchequer, because it was found by inquisi-

manor came to the hands of Henry III. by forfeiture of the said Robert 
after the discomfiture of the French at Lincoln, and the said king granted 
it to Richard, late king of Alinain, who afterwards gave it to the abbot 
and convent of Rewley {de Loco Regalt) near Oxford, in frank-

that sum, which he asserts that he received by reason of an account made 
by him from the merchants of Lucca, for divers payments made by them
