678 documents

Contents:
CCA-DCc-ChAnt/M/1-38 The majority of charters in this section relate to the manor of Mersham in Kent, which lies just south of Ashford. DCc-ChAnt/M/9, DCc-ChAnt/M/16 and DCc-ChAnt/M/17 relate to the manor of Agney, in Romney Marsh. DCc-Register/C, ff238r-242v contains 25 charters for Mersham and there are 9 charters for Mersham in DCc-Register/E, ff279v-281r.
CCA-DCc-ChAnt/M/38A-38C These charters relate to the manor of Merstham in Surrey, which sits on the North Downs just above Reigate. There are 27 Merstham charters in DCc-Register/B, f319r and ff337v-341v and 19 charters for Merstham in DCc-Register/C, ff365r-367v, but none of these registered versions corresponds to original charters in this collection.
CCA-DCc-ChAnt/M/39-82A The majority of charters in this section relate to Mongeham in east Kent, which lies just 2 miles west of Deal. DCc-ChAnt/M/58 relates to the manor of Eastry, just south-west of Sandwich. DCc-Register/C, ff59r-65v contains 36 charters for Mongeham and there are 35 charters for Mongeham in DCc-Register/E, ff206r-211v.
CCA-DCc-ChAnt/M/83-129 The charters in this section relate to the manor of Meopham in west Kent, which is situated above the River Medway, to the west of Rochester. DCc-Register/D, ff480r-494r contains 55 charters for Meopham and there are 11 charters for Meopham in DCc-Register/E, ff347r-348v. There are copies of many of the Meopham charters in the priory almoner's register which is now Bodleian Library Tanner MS 18. DCc-ChAnt/M/99 relates to several places besides Meopham and has been registered in the Elverton section of the register.
CCA-DCc-ChAnt/M/130-209C The majority of charters in this section relate to the manor of Monkton in east Kent, which is on the River Stour, on the south west corner of the Isle of Thanet. DCc-ChAnt/M/140 relates to the manor of Adisham, near Canterbury. DCc-Register/C, ff129v-147v contains 43 charters for Monkton and there are 14 charters for Monkton in DCc-Register/E, ff203r-205r. A number of charters relate to grants of land for the provision of lights in Canterbury Cathedral and these have been recorded in the sections for the relevant altars and chapels of DCc-Register/A and DCc-Register/E. There are also registered versions of Monkton charters in the almoner's cartualry, Bodl MS Tanner 18.
CCA-DCc-ChAnt/M/210-211 These charters relate to Minster in Thanet in east Kent. There are no charters for Minster in DCc-Register/A-E.
CCA-DCc-ChAnt/M/212-222 These charters relate to Maidstone, the county town of Kent, which lies on the River Medway, 8 miles south of Rochester. There are no charters for Maidstone in DCc-Register/A-E.
CCA-DCc-ChAnt/M/223-225 The majority of these charters relate to the manor of Mersea in Essex, which lies 9 miles south of Colchester. DCc-Register/B, f141v contains 4 charters for Mersea and there are 3 charters for Mersea in DCc-Register/E, f384r. Only one of these registered versions corresponds to an original charter in this collection. Alderman Bunce catalogued some of the charters which relate to Murzie in Marden under the heading of Mersea.
CCA-DCc-ChAnt/M/226-237B The majority of these charters relate to the parish of Marden which lies in the Weald of Kent, about 8 miles south west of Maidstone. Many of these charters are connected with Leeds Priory, but most of Leeds Priory's property, including the manor of Marden, was granted to the Dean and Chapter of Rochester at the Dissolution. The documents have no obvious connection with Canterbury and may only have come here in the 1660s, when the cathedral's archives were returned after the Restoration.
CCA-DCc-ChAnt/M/238-240 The majority of these charters relate to the manor of Middleton, which lies near Southend in south east Essex. DCc-Register/B, f48v contains 3 charters for Middleton and there are 4 charters for Middleton in DCc-Register/E, f377r.
CCA-DCc-ChAnt/M/241-399 The remaining charters relate to various places beginning with M and places which cannot be identified. This section also contains documents which Alderman Bunce has classified as miscellaneous because they do not fit into any of the categories used elsewhere in his catalogue. The documents for places beginning with M include 9 charters relating to marshland at Misleham in Brookland (DCc-ChAnt/M/340G and DCc-ChAnt/M/392A-H). The miscellaneous charters include 2 groups of documents relating to the exercise of the cathedral priory's sede vacante jurisdiction in the vacancies of 1240-1245 and 1292-1294 (DCc-ChAnt/M/364 and DCc-ChAnt/M/256). A number of charters (DCc-ChAnt/M/281, DCc-ChAnt/M/299-305, DCc-ChAnt/M/308, DCc-ChAnt/M/387 and DCc-ChAnt/M/399) relate to the missions of Sir William Sturmy, John Kington and William Brampton to the Hanseatic towns in 1405 and 1407. John Kington became a monk at Canterbury Cathedral Priory in 1410 (see entry in Greatrex, under Kynton), which perhaps explains why the records are here.
CCA-DCc-ChAnt/M/400-500 These documents have not previously been catalogued. DCc-ChAnt/M/400-420 relate to Marden, Merstham, Milton near Canterbury, Minster in Thanet, Monks Eleigh and Monkton. The remaining documents relate to places which cannot be identified and subjects which cannot be fitted elsewhere into Bunce's scheme and have been arranged in a single, chronological, sequence. DCc-ChAnt/M/461-464 relate to the missions of Sir William Sturmy, John Kington and William Brampton to the Hanseatic towns.

Contents:
Statement of a case between Sir John Knatchbull and the rest of the customary tenants of the manor of Mersham relating to the common called 'Mersham Heath' or 'Hatch Heath'. About 30 years ago Sir Norton Knatchbull wished to enclose 8 acres of the common near his house and make them part of his park. In exchange he laid out 8 acres at the lower side of his park called 'Conyfield' as an addition to the common. The tenants agreed to this on condition that he moved his warren at the side of the common, which he did, and that they should be allowed to fetch water from a spring pond in the 8 acres he had enclosed. The agreement was recorded in the court rolls of the manor. About 7 or 8 years ago, Sir Norton wished to make his park more uniform and sent his steward, Mr Hall, to ask the tenants whether he could enclose the 8 acres called 'Conyfield' which he had formerly added to the common and offering to pay the customary dues which the tenants paid to the manor of Mersham. The tenants agreed and signed a document giving Sir Norton permission to carry out the enclosure. One tenant, Robert Lot, refused to sign and Sir Norton gave him £10 to obtain his agreement; Robert was to pay his own customary dues. However, neither Sir Norton nor Sir John has paid the customary dues or given the tenants security to discharge them, although they were requested to do so. About 3 years ago Sir John enclosed another 3 roods of the common near his house without the tenants' agreement. The 8 acres [of 'Conyfield'] is worth 3 times the yearly value of the customary dues the Knatchbulls agreed to pay. The tenants ask Sir John to give them security for paying the customary dues and to return the land he has taken to their use. No date. [Date: Sir Norton Knatchbull died in 1685; Sir John Knatchbull died in 1696.] Endorsed 'This paper concernes the Tennants of Mersham and was brought in by Mr Boys' in late 17th cent hands.

From: the prior and convent of Canterbury Cathedral Priory To: Mgr William de Weleburne, rector of Meopham A number of disputed points ('questio') between the prior and William have been settled. William gives up any disputes relating to the third sheaf as tithes in Meopham parish and to the priory's lands and possessions there, and will not initiate any dispute between himself and the priory unless it relates to the right of his successors. William will hold a house and garden for life. In return he grants the priory 1 acre of land in Meopham parish, lying near the priory's portion, towards the house of Simon son of Peter, to be held for the term of his life, reserving to the priory's rights in the house and garden, in case any of Willliam's successors wish to overturn the composition and reclaim the acre of land. The priory promises that during William's lifetime it will not initiate any disputes over 2 pieces of land, tithes of sheaves or altar-dues ('altalagium'). William shall possess everything peacefully, in accordance with arbitration concerning the church and other matters. The priory and William also give up any other disputes which are still pending.

From: John Fynch, prior of Canterbury Cathedral Priory; the chapter of Canterbury Cathedral Priory To: Thomas Chillenden, I, monk of Canterbury Catheral Priory; Walter Causton, monk of Canterbury Catheral Priory The church of Meopham was appropriated to the priory and its almonry for the maintenance of the poor. The priory possessed the church peacefully and received its fruits and profits until Archbishop Baldwin deprived it of them. The church should be restored to the priory as it held it in Baldwin's time and, before that, in the time of Archbishop Richard of Dover, who gave the priory the church. It has been decreed that the church should be restored to the priory, and when it becomes vacant the priory may re-enter and reacquire it and return it to the use of the almonry, the counterclaim ('reclamatio') of Archbishop William [Wittlesey] and his successors notwithstanding. The church is now vacant by the departure of Mgr John Kyrkby, the last rector, in accordance with Pope John XXII's constitution, beginning 'execrabil''. The priory therefore, by authority of the decree of Archbishop William Courtenay, appoints Thomas and Walter as its proctors to re-enter and reacquire it and to collect the profits from it and dispose of them to the use of the almonry. They are also to act for the priory in any lawsuit concerning the church and to care for the souls of the parishioners as far as this belongs to the priory. Given at the chapter house of Canterbury Cathedral Priory. Endorsed 'De ecclesia Mepham' in late 14th cent hand and 'Ex Case no 84' in 20th cent hand.

The 266 acres of the marsh of Brooks End and Gore End [both in Birchington] were protected against fresh water flooding by drainage channels placed there by the prior and convent of Canterbury Cathedral Priory until Walter Reynolds, former archbishop of Canterbury, leased his manor of 'Senycolas' [St Nicholas?] to Richard Knotte, who still holds it of Archbishop Simon Meopham.

Contents:
Ralph Weston, chaplain, proctor of the prior, chapter and almonry of Canterbury Cathedral Priory, claims that the rectory of Monkton has been appropriated to the priory and that the prior can re-possess it because it is vacant by the death of Thomas Tetford, the last rector. He claims as his authority the sentence of Archbishop Simon Meopham, given at Mayfield [Sussex] on 10 Oct 1365 (as in ChAnt/E/176). The archbishop's sentence was delivered in response to the priory's claim, made by Mgr Richard Wodeland, its proctor, that the churches of Eastry and Meopham had been annexed to it by Archbishop Richard of Dover. Ralph takes possession of the church and rectory house in the name of the priory, and performs symbolic actions, including hearing the confessions of John Yonge and Richard Tailour and eating food given by Peter Sale, the priory almoner, in the rectory house in Peter's presence. Given in the porch of Monkton church [Kent] in the presence of Mgr Robert Bourne, rector of Freckenham ('Frekenham') [Suffolk], Richard Maunsel, priest, John Chilterne, notary public, Adam Bengekyn and Alexander Cherlton.

From: Peter, archbishop of Aachen [Germany], auditor of contradictory letters ('audiencie litterarum contradictarum officium gerens') Mgr Ralph of Horncastle, proctor of St Augustine's Abbey, Canterbury, obtained papal letters for the abbey. Recites letters of Pope John XXII to the prior of St Gregory's Priory, Canterbury, dated at Avignon, 20 Dec 1319. These state that the parishioners of Milton Regis parish, Canterbury diocese, which the abbey has appropriated, have been refusing to pay their tithes to the abbey, alleging that thye never paid them before. The prior is to investigate, and if the parishioners should pay tithes to the abbey, he is to apply ecclesiastical censure. Mgr Brice of Sharstead, proctor of Canterbury Cathedral Priory, has opposed this, on the grounds that this letter should not apply to the priory, its officials ('offic'') or servants ('minister') and Ralph, in Peter's presence, has promised that it will not. Letter 'G' at bottom of document. Given at Avignon [Vaucluse, France]. Endorsed with description, stating that the cautio relates to Milton Regis, Faversham, Selling, Kennington and Preston next Wingham in 14th cent hand.

Contents:
Taken at Sittingbourne in the presence of Elias Reyner, steward ('seneschallus') of Milton Regis, by virtue of a commission of King Richard II to him under the exchequer seal. The jurors state that Philippa of Hainault, formerly queen of England and lady of the manor of Milton Regis, and all previous lords of the manor and their tenants of the hundred of Marden should repair the house of a cow-pasture ('vaccaria'), called 'Cowhous' in the manor of Milton Regis. The tenants of Marden should repair the part called 'Somerhous' which is 18 feet wide and 48 feet long, and should make cheese, butter and dairy products for the serjeant ('serviens') called 'le day'. The tenants have built more than they should, 18 feet wide and 48 feet broad, because the steward compelled them. Nicholas de Farndone, farmer of the manor in the time of both Queen Philippa and the present king's grandfather (Edward III), has losses to the value of £18 over 7 years because the queen and her tenants did not build the house that they should have done. The jurors assess Nicholas's losses at £7 10s for 5 of the 7 years because of the tenants' default and £10 10s for 6 of the 7 years because of the king and queen's default. No date. [Date: handwriting.] Original dated 11 Apr 1382, at Sittingbourne [Kent]. Jurors: Peter lamberd, John Badewell', John at Med, Simon Mayhew, Geoffrey Bodill, William Beaugrant, John Horbrok', Robert Janyn, Adam at Pette, Adam Keym, Peter Reve and John Colishalle. The inquisition is followed by an assessment to be levied on the tenants of the hundred of Marden for the building and repairing of the 'Somerhous', giving the names of those who are to pay, the names of their tenants and some brief details of their lands. The total amount is 2s 8d.

From: Peter des Roches, bishop of Winchester; Simon the chamberlain, abbot of Reading; Pandulf, papal sub-deacon and member of the pope's household ('familiaris') To: Stephen Langton, archbishop of Canterbury Recites the letter of Pope Innocent III to Peter, Simon and Pandulf. Although King John has made satisfaction to the church and particularly to the archbishop and his fellow bishops, some of them are now failing to help him against rebels. The rebels are particularly condemned because they are preventing the king's crusade to the Holy Land. The pope excommunicates the rebels and places their lands under interdict. The archbishop and his fellow bishops are to cause the sentence to be published and anyone who fails to do so shall be suspended. Dated 7 Jul 1215, at Ferentino [Roma, Italy]. Robert fitz Walter, the earl of Winchester, the earl of Clare, the earl of Gloucester, Eustace de Vescy, Richard de Percy, John, constable of Chester, William de Albini and William de Mowbray have taken up arms against the king. The city of London has also fortified itself against the king and punished those loyal to him. The citizens of London and other rebels have overthrown established customs and laws and the ordinances of the king and his council, and no-one dares to contradict them. In obedience to the pope's mandate, Peter, Simon and Pandulf denounce the rebels, commanding Stephen to excommunicate them and place their lands under interdict and cause the sentence to be observed throughout his dioceses. The city of London and its citizens are singled out for special condemnation. No sacraments are to be celebrated in the lands under interdict except baptism and extreme unction. In particular they command Giles de Braose, bishop of Hereford, William fitz Walter, archdeacon of Hereford, Alexander the clerk, Osbert de Samar, chaplain ('capellanus'), John de Fereby, clerk, and R, chaplain of Robert fitz Walter, to observe the sentences until satisfaction is made to the church and the king, and to promote the crusade.

These documents are mandates issued by the cathedral priory while exercising sede vacante jurisdiction of the Court of Canterbury. Some are inhibition and citation mandates, issued when appeals were made to the Court of Canterbury to suspend proceedings in the lower court and fix a date for beginning the appeal proceedings. See N Adams and C Donahue, Select cases from the ecclesiastical courts of the Province of Canterbury c1200-1301 (London, Selden Society, 1981), pp59-72. Most documents are dated 1294, and those that are not dated can be attributed to the same period because of their content and style. Some of the documents are damaged. The diplomatic of the documents is heavily abbreviated. In many cases the date for appearance at court has been altered.

Contents:
From: the consuls of the cities of the Hanse, assembled in Lubeck [Schleswig-Holstein, Germany] for pleas To: Henry IV, king of England On 22 May last they learned many things concerning the business of the Hanse from the ambassador of Prussia. Werner de Tetingen, deputy of the Grand Master of the Teutonic Knights and Hospitaller in Elbing [Poland], had received the king's letters to Conrad Jungingen, late Grand Master of the order, on 6 Apr at Marienburg in Prussia [Germany], saying the one of the king's ambassadors, William Esturmy, knight, was going to Dordrecht [Zuid Holland, Netherlands] and summoning him there. The proconsuls and consuls of Lubeck showed them these letters. The deputy of Grand Master answered that power had been given to the king's ambassadors and the commissaries of the Master General to settle disputes in both Marienburg and Dordrecht. The journey would be dangerous for the Grand Master's messengers and to the prejudice of all parties, which could have been provided for if they had received the letters relating to the deferment of days before they set out, which they could have done according to the date of the letters. Since the deputy of the Grand Master, the Proconsuls and Consuls of Lubeck and the elders ('senior') of the community of merchants of the Hanse at Bruges [West Vlaanderen, Belgium], who also received the letters, accept the king's wish to promote peace, they have decided to send ambassadors on behalf of all those involved to Dordrecht on 1 Aug to conclude the business without further delay. Given under the seal of the city of Lubeck [no longer present]. Endorsed with address in early 15th cent hands.

Concerning a plea of debt. By a bond dated 4 Oct 1665 at Maidstone, Kent, Edward Day, brewer ('brasiator') of Sandwich was bound to the dean and chapter in the sum of £100 but he has not yet paid, and the dean and chapter have lost £20. The dean and chapter are represented by their attorney, Francis Scott, and Edward by his attorney, Edward Ambrose. The bond was to be void if Edward observed the conditions in the lease (recited) of the windmill called Eastry mill for a term of 30 years for an annual payment of £3, payable as specified at the cathedral treasury. The lease included conditions on repairs. The dean and chapter claim that Edward has allowed the roofing, walls and woodwork of the mill to fall into disrepair and has not repaired them, thus breaking the terms of the lease. Edward denies this. Dated Trinity Term 35CharlesII [Jun 1683]. Endorsed with description in contemporary hand.

Contents:
Relating to a cause between Mgr Alexander, rector of Meopham, and Prior Thomas de Ringmere and the convent of Canterbury Cathedral Priory, heard before Ralph de Baldock, archdeacon of Middlesex, commissary of the dean of St Paul's Cathedral, London, papal judge delegate. Alexander initially appeared in person, but was later represented by his proctor Robert de Theuelby, clerk. The priory's proctor was Robert de Seleseya, monk, who substituted for Hugh de Derby. Alexander claimed that the rectors of Meopham were entitled to all tithes belonging to the church, but that the priory, by its almoner, had kept one-third of the church's greater tithes and arable land. He also claimed that the goods of Richard Hanibaud, deceased, rector of Meopham, his immediate predecessor, valued at 50 marks, were in the hands of the priory almoner and had been sequestrated by Roger de la grave, commissary of Rochester diocese sede vacante, to repair defects in the houses, chancel and books of the church. Since then the rector has repaired these defects at at a cost of 40 marks to himself. The priory held the church at farm from Richard Hanibaud, but neglected many of the buildings, sold or burnt part of the timber, allowed other buildings to be used by its laymen and cut down or uprooted many ash trees and fruit trees in the rector's courtyard, causing damage to the value of £10. The rector asks the judge to restore the tithes to him and compel the priory to make satisfaction. The prior's proctor alleges that a suit could not be brought against the priory more than a certain distance from its monastery and in support of this exhibits a privilege of Pope Honorius III. The judge concludes that the priory cannot be compelled to answer the rector in his (the judge's) presence. Recites documents dating from 8 Apr 1282 to 28 Apr 1284. No date. [Date: date of latest document recited.] Endorsed with descriptions and note of registration in late 13th and 14th cent hands.

The prior appealed from the archdeacon's court of audience to the pope and has also asked for the protection (tuition) of the see of Canterbury.

It has also inhibited the prior of Wenlock and given him a date to appear because he hindered its jurisdiction. If the priory sends him letters patent he will prosecute its jurisdiction and his justice at his own cost and if the priory wishes to exercise its jurisdiction he will support the fulfilment of justice. He asks what he should do. No date. [Date: dates of other documents on the roll.]

Contents:
Walter de Langedon' appeared and Joan de Fange was represented by William de Turri, her proctor. William alleges that the testimony of Robert le Ropere on Walter's behalf is invalid because he is poor, has a bad reputation and has been defamed of theft and attached for theft by the king's bailiffs. His testimony is also suspect because he is the chief enemy ('capitalis inimicus') of William de Fange, against whom it is said ('introduco') that he accused Robert of theft and caused him to be attached by the king's bailiffs after a long time had passed, after he was called as a witness. William de Fange sold the wardship and marriage of Joan to William de Hadlo, to whom he is bound to warrant the sale. If Robert's evidence is valid, William de Fange is bound to compensate William de Hadlo for the value of the wardship and marriage. The judge refused to admit these exceptions, so William de Turri appealed to the pope and for protection (tuition). When Walter de Langedon' sought Joan in marriage in the presence of the rural dean of Essex, she took exception to Robert le Ropere because he was poor and was accused of theft, which she was prepared to prove. Because the rural dean would not allow her to do this, she appealed to church of Canterbury and sought judgement? ('Iudic''). She? seeks as judges the abbot of St Augustine's Abbey, Canterbury, the abbot of Boxley Abbey and the prior of St Gregory's Priory, Canterbury. Endorsed 'Mag'ro Petro Lumbardo' in contemporary hand.

Relating to an office case brought by E de Stok', commissary of Richard Gravesend, bishop of London, concerning the obligation of the prior and convent of Prittlewell Priory [Essex] to repair the chancel of Canewdon church [Essex], which they have appropriated. The priory was warned to repair the chancel by Henry, vicar of Wakering [Essex] and when they ignored this was summoned to St Paul's Cathedral to explain why it should not be compelled to do so. The priory failed to appear and the judge assigned another date. At that time, its proctor, William de Northampton, exhibited an instrument with no seal or other mark of authentication and the judge assigned another day. On that day the priory put forward nothing in its defence and the judge ordered that it should be compelled to repair the chancel. E de Stok' sent a mandate to the rural dean of Rochester, telling him to warn the priory to repair the chancel. If it did not do so within 15 days, the rural dean was to suspend the prior and subprior from celebrating divine service. The rural dean warned the priory at Prittlewell and Canewdon, and when nothing was done after 15 days he suspended the prior and subprior. Recites documents dating between 22 Nov and 17 Dec 1293.

He will not admit Richard to litigate, correct or hear cases between the rector's parishioners, and inhibits him from doing this. When he had read and submitted the protestation, Robert twice approached the door of Maidstone church and sought to enter in the rector's name, but could not.

On 13 May 1293 Richard de Clyve, monk of Canterbury Cathedral Priory, commissary of Canterbury and visitor in the city and diocese of Canterbury, appointed by the prior and chapter of Canterbury Cathedral Priory sede vacante, came to visit the church of Maidstone but found its doors closed against him and 'Dominus' Robert de Sancto Petro, chaplain ('capellanus'), standing in the churchyard ('cimiterium').

He protested that he would only admit Richard to visit once, summarily, for inquiring into the defects of the church as the archbishop did when the see was full. He also protested many other things, contained in the protestation he delivered to Richard. Thomas of Stone, Thomas le taylur, Robert bucher, Robert Marchaunt and Nicholas the sacrist ('sacrista') and other parishioners were present and prevented Richard from entering the church, even when his commission from the priory had been read in both Latin and English and touched and inspected by many. Adam, door-keeper ('hostiarius') of the schools of Maidstone, appeared, acting as proctor for John of Maidstone, Thomas Omeri, Thomas Wakerild, William Frowe, John herand and the remaining parishioners, and submitted a proxy in their name. When Richard sought a copy of this, Adam said that he had been appointed by word of mouth ('viva voce') but he read and published the proxy and gave Richard a copy. Adam, in the parishioners' name, and all the parishioners present then refused to let Richard enter the church. Richard then left. Endorsed with subscriptions, apparently in their own handwriting, by Richard de Morcestr', clerk, Ralph de Derbi, chaplain ('capellanus') and Robert de Sancto Petro.

Paper, 1p, very dirty, badly creased, torn, fragile

Contents:
From: Thomas [Goldstone, III], prior of Canterbury Cathedral Priory Thomas Malcher brought an action for debt against William Dunton', late of Hadleigh, Suffolk, and Emma, widow of Augustine ('Austyn'') Dunton, late of Hadleigh, the executors of Augustine Dunton's will, for £40 Augustine owed him by a bond. The condition of the bond was that Augustine should observe the award of William [Molashe, I], prior of Canterbury Cathedral Priory, in various matters. William and Emma claimed that on 1 Nov 1437 the prior had awarded that the lands Augustine held of him in Monks Eleigh should by measured by Nicholas Parker and that Augustine should then pay 100s to Thomas, who was farmer and bailiff of Monks Eleigh manor, in part payment of arrears for those lands. Thomas Goldstone certifies that Augustine was bound to observe the award of Robert Cavendissh', John harliston', John Bamborugh and Robert Crane, which was to be made by 1 Nov 1437. If the award was not made by then, he should observe the award of William Molashe, to be made by 2 Feb 1438. The arbitrators did not make an award and the prior's award was made on 29 Jan 1438 before the bailiffs of Canterbury. The prior died on 19 Feb, however, and was succeeded by John Salisbury, I. Augustine came to Canterbury to negotiate with John Salisbury about the award. On 15 Sep 1438, Augustine's land was measured in the presence of Thomas Goldstone, III, Thomas Malcher', Augustine, John Wendcole, Thomas Godyng, clerk to prior John Salisbury, Thomas lodbroke and Nicholas Smyth, and Augustine paid 100s to Thomas Malcher, as recorded in a bill dated 10 Oct. Thomas Goldstone states that William Molashe never made an award dated 1 Nov 1437 as William and Emma claim, only one dated 29 Jan 1438.

The jurors, Edmund Ponde, Nicholas More, Nicholas Boyton', John Cissely, Geoffrey Davy, Robert Undyrwode, John Ingram, Robert Brunsted, Richard Jamys, Robert Cok, William Heche and Thomas Myddylton', confirm the prior's claim. They say that the rent is for 'rengiat'' land built upon ('rengiata terra edificata') of Robert, late of John Swolle and before of John Fastolff, knight, which is held of the priory for the rent, payable as specified.

The rent has not been paid for 6 years and they assess damages to the prior at 20d, in addition to the arrears, and costs at 40d. The prior is to recover seisin of his land and is awarded damages of £4 5s. Endorsed with description and note that the document was enrolled in the Common Pleas in the presence of John Russe by John Calyard, clerk, on 10 Jul 1478 in mid 15th cent hands.

John has been defending places and people under the pope's immediate jurisdiction, particularly St Augustine's Abbey, Canterbury. When he asked permission to go to Rome the archbishop threatened him, so John asked the pope for protection. The pope commands the addressees to protect John and his possessions against the archbishop and the chapter of Canterbury sede vacante. The bishop of Frascati orders the addressees not to molest John. If Archbishop Robert Winchelsey harms John, he shall be suspended and excommunicated if he persists. If the chapter does anything, they will be placed under interdict and suspended. He suspends the archbishop from entering church, with the threat of supsension from divine service and ultimately excommunication, if he persists. He also excommunicates all officials and commissaries who are to blame in this matter unless they can show why they should not be. The archbishop is cited to appear before the bishop of Winchester or the dean of St Paul's, London, to whom the bishop of Frascati has committed everything else entrusted to him by the pope.

Contents:
From: Henry of Eastry, prior of Canterbury Cathedral Priory; the chapter of Canterbury Cathedral Priory Recites the exemplification of Norwich Cathedral Priory's titles deeds by Archbishop John Pecham, dated at Lambeth, 1 May 1281. At a recent visitation he summoned Norwich Cathedral Priory to show what churches and other ecclesiastical property it had in the city and diocese of Norwich. The priory produced various documents at Holy Trinity Priory Ipswich, and, fearing danger to some of the documents because of their age, it asked the archbishop to exemplifiy them. The seals of the documents were broken as a result of the recent conflict between the priory and the city of Norwich [in 1272] and the priory asked to have them renewed and published. The archbishop, having satisfied himself that the priory did not ask for the documents to be published because of any dispute, caused them to be exemplified by John of Beccles, notary public. Recites 10 documents, including a charters of Henry I and Queen Matilda and Pope Paschal II, a charter of Archbishop Anselm, a charter attributed to Archbishop Thomas Becket, although probably of Archbishop Theobald, and 6 charters of bishops of Norwich, including Everard and William Raleigh. Notarial attestion of John Alani of Beccles, notary public, Norwich diocese. Witnesses listed. Canterbury Cathedral Priory confirms these charters.

Contents:
From: Henry of Eastry, prior of Canterbury Cathedral Priory; the chapter of Canterbury Cathedral Priory When the see of Norwich became vacant on the death of John Salmon there was a dispute about vacancy jurisdiction in the city and diocese of Norwich between the prior and chapter of Norwich and Archbishop Walter Reynolds and his successor, Simon Meopham. Simon, with the consent of Canterbury Cathedral Priory, has reached an agreement with Norwich Cathedral Priory. Recites Simon's composition, dated 22 Jun 1330 at Mortlake [Surrey]. [Apart from a few minor differences in wording and the omission of a clause relating to the appointee's power of granting absolution, this seems to be identical with the slightly later versions cited below.] Details of the scope of the archbishop's sede vacante jurisdiction in Norwich, including procedure for appointing an official and provisions relating to visitation and accepting professions of obedience. Details of the scope of Norwich Cathedral Priory's jurisdiction during vacancies. If the see of Canterbury is vacant at the same time as the see of Norwich, the prior and chapter of Canterbury Cathedral Priory shall exercise the jurisdiction which the archbishop would have. Simon promises to observe these conditions and to oblige his successors to do so. Canterbury Cathedral Priory confirms this composition. Given in the chapter house of Canterbury Cathedral Priory. Endorsed with description and 'S ysleppe' in 14th cent hand.

From: Cosmas Meliorato, cardinal priest of St Cross in Jerusalem, commissary of Pope Boniface IX To: Henry Despenser, bishop of Norwich; the prior and chapter of Norwich Cathedral Priory Recites letters of Cosmas to Norwich Priory, dated at his house ('hospitium') near St Peter's, Rome, on 15 Dec 1395. Papal letters sought by the priory had been seized at Henry's request but had subsequently been taken from ('extraho') the papal registry by the oath of John Kyrkeby, monk, the prior's proctor. These letters of Pope Bonface IX to the priory, dated at St Peter's, Rome, 16 Mar 1394, allowed the priory to profess novice monks after their year of probation, provided the bishop of Norwich had first been asked ('requiro'). These letters are to be recalled and annulled and the priory is not to use them to do anything to the bishop's prejudice. If it has done so before receiving Cosmas' letter, it is to revoke its action on pain of excommunication. Witnesses listed. On 24 May John produced letters from Boniface IX (recited) and said that they were the one recited in Cosmas' letter. On 9 Jun Mgr Nicholas Lubich, Henry's proctor, appeared and produced two instruments about presenting Boniface's letters to the priory and executing them. John said that he was the priory's proctor for receiving a copy of the instruments and contradicting them and demanded to be cited. Subsequently John, Cosmas's porter ('porterius'), who had been involved in seizing the letters, said that the letters John Krykeby had produced were the ones recited in the instrument. On 12 Jun Cosmas delivered judgement in his house and, at John Kyrkeby's request, excused the priory concerning the letters which were seized. Given at Cosmas' house in the Parione district of Rome, in the parish of St Laurence in Damaso. Notarial attestation and sign of Nerius, late clerk of Gerius de Roggeriis of Pisa ('Pisan''), notary public, secretary of Cardinal Cosmas, judge and commissary, who wrote the document. Witnesses: Basil de Reys, clerk, Cologne ('Colonien'') diocese; Theodoric de Bethen, clerk, Utrecht ('Traiecten'') diocese Endorsed with description, describing Cosmas as Cardinal of Bologna ('Bononiensis'), in late 14th cent hands.

From: John Stratford, archbishop of Canterbury The abbot and convent of St Augustine's Abbey, Canterbury, have appropriated the church of Northbourne and the archbishop has put pressure on them to assign a portion to J, the vicar, and the vicarage within a certain time. The abbey has assigned a portion and asks the archbishop's commissary to confirm it. The vicar is to have a house and garden with 2 acres of land and 11 acres of land at 'Donneslande' [in Northbourne], with the right to pasture 2 cows as specified. He is to receive greater and lesser tithes as specified from Northbourne, except the tithe of the abbey's mill situated near the highway leading from How ('Hoo') [in Northbourne] to the king's highway which leads from Northbourne to Canterbury, and the tithes of hay from the pastures the abbey has in the parish at the time of this ordination. He is also to receive tithes of timber from the dependant chapelries of Cottington ('Cotmanton') [in Sholden] and Sholden. The vicar is to serve the churches and chapels himself and provide them with bread, wine, lights and other things necessary for divine service at his own cost, except for the chapel of Cottington, where these things shall be provided by the lords of the manor, who are also responsible for repairing its chancel and providing, repairing and replacing books, vestments and other ornaments. The vicar is to pay the tenth, for which the commissary has assessed the vicarage at 10 marks. The rectors are to be responsible for the repair of the chancels of Northbourne and Sholden and for providing them with books, vestments and ornaments. The archbishop confirms this ordination. No date. [Date: handwriting.] Original apparently dated 13 Feb 1269, but actually 1342. [Date of original: as in Thorne's Chronicle, p503, cited below. The date of 13 Feb 1269 relates to the entry immediately following the text of the ordination of Northbourne in Thorne's Chronicle. This suggests that the copy was made from Thorne's Chronicle, not from an original document. John Twyne may have owned the copy of Thorne's Chronicle that is now Cambridge, Corpus Christi College MS 189 (see A G Watson, cited below, p147).]. Compared with the original held by Mgr John Twyne.

CCA-DCc-ChAnt/O/1-107 This section relates to Odiham in Hampshire, which lies 26 miles north east of Winchester and 37 miles north east of Southampton. The documents have no obvious connection with Canterbury and may only have come here in the 1660s, when the cathedral's archives were returned after the Restoration. DCc-ChAnt/O/107 relates to Bodiam in Sussex.
CCA-DCc-ChAnt/O/108-121A The documents in this section relate to Orpington, which lies on the North Downs in the north-west corner of Kent.

CCA-DCc-ChAnt/O/127A-152 The majority of documents in this section relate to Canterbury College, Oxford, founded for students from Canterbury Cathedral Priory by Archbishop Simon Islip between 1361 and 1363. Many of them are transcribed and discussed in W A Pantin's four volumes on Canterbury College, published by the Oxford Historical Society. A number of documents in this section relate to a dispute between the priory and the warden and scholars of Merton College about some land in or near the priory's manor of Cheam in Surrey. There are 23 charters for Oxford in DCc-Register/B, ff366r-391v. There are no charters for Oxford in DCc-Register/E. DCc-ChAnt/O/142-144 relate to the chapel of Overland, near Ash in East Kent.
