Contents:
Since time immemorial, a ferry between the Isle of Thanet and the rest of Kent has crossed [the Wantsum Channel] at Sarre. Recently the channel has become so silted up that the ferry can no longer cross it, except for an hour during the high Spring tides. This is a grave disadvantage to those who have lands in Thanet and may lead to Thanet's being captured during a war, because troops cannot easily be transported across the Wantsum Channel. An act of parliament was passed, empowering the inhabitants of Thanet to build a bridge as specified at Sarre. After the bridge is built, the chancellor of England shall appoint commissioners to make provision for the repair and mantainence of the bridge and the roads and causeways leading to it and to build new roads and causeways when necessary. The inhabitants of Thanet shall be liable for any costs. The commissions shall be sent to Justices of the Peace, so that they can enquire about damage to the haven of Sandwich and the causeways and whether building the bridge at Sarre will harm the haven. If the enquiry finds that the haven would be improved by removing the bridge, the commissioners can remove it. Significant alterations to original text. No date. [Date: handwriting. A private act of parliament enabling the inhabitants of Sarre to build a bridge was passed in 1HenVII [22 Aug 1485-21 Aug 1486].] Endorsed 'Billa de Thaneto' and with handwriting practice in late 15th cent hands.

Contents:
From: Richard II, king of England The king has inspected a decree made in parliament on 22 Jan, concerning the custody of the lordship and manor of Tonbridge, which are of the inheritance of the heir of the earl of Stafford who is under age and who holds of the archbishop of Canterbury in chief (recited). The archbishops have custody of all lands which are held in chief of them during the minority of the heirs, even when the heirs hold other lands in chief of the king. William Courtenay, late archbishop, held the castle and manor of Tonbridge because the heir of the earl of Stafford was a minor. A dispute arose between Thomas Arundel, the present archbishop, and William's executors concerning this. A composition was made between the archbishop and the prior and chapter of Canterbury Cathedral Priory and the archbishop asked the king to examine this and issue a decree on the matter. The king appointed Robert de Waldby, archbishop of York, Robert de Braybroke, bishop of London, John de Fordham, bishop of Ely, John of Gaunt, duke of Aquitaine and Lancaster, John de Holand, earl of Huntingdon, and Thomas Mowbray, earl marshal, to examine the composition and report to him. On 22 Jan they presented their decree by Walter Clopton, the king's chief justice. This stipulated that one-third of the heir's manors, lands and tenements and the profits from them should remain in the hands of the priory, to be applied to its own use. The other two parts were to remain with the priory until the king ordered to whom they should be delivered. The castle of Tonbridge was to be delivered to the archbishop of Canterbury to hold until the heir came of age. The king confirmed this decree. The decree is exemplified at the request of the archbishop of Canterbury and the priory. Sent patent. The clerk is Faryngton'. Given at Westminster [Middlesex]. Endorsed 'pro prior Cantuar'' in late 14th cent hand.

Contents:
In support of the claim of Elizabeth, widow of Ralph Legh, esq, and her children to the remainder of his term in the manor of Walworth [Surrey]. Thomas Goldstone, III, prior of Canterbury Cathedral Priory, and the convent of Canterbury Cathedral Priory leased the manor to Ralph and John Roger, yeoman, his servant, who was acting as a trustee, on 5 Jan 1452 for a term of 80 years. John released his rights in the manor to Ralph in 1459, but subsequently denied this and claimed it was done under duress. On 1 Feb 1461 Ralph granted his manor of Stockwell, Surrey, and all his other property in Surrey to trustees. The priory's representatives, particularly a monk called 'holingborne' [perhaps John Holingborne, I], have entered the manor and held courts there, contrary to the lease, and intimidated the tenants. Elizabeth is willing to submit to arbitration, but the prior will not agree because he wishes the decision to be in his favour. Detailed evidence, including copies of the lease, John's release and Ralph's grant, and information about the extensive building work and repairs carried out by Ralph in the manor. No date. [Date: handwriting. The evidence states that the term had 59 years left.]

From: Hamo de Hethe, bishop of Rochester To: the prior and chapter of Canterbury Cathedral Priory The priory's petition shows that its income is diminishing from various causes as specified, including the flooding of its lands near the sea and the effect of the plague upon its livestock; even its fertile lands by the sea, from which it used to receive more than 200 marks, now yield nothing. It receives large numbers of visitors and incurs heavy expenses in maintaining its rights and liberties. For these reasons, it cannot provide its accustomed hospitality or perform other works of charity, and opportunities for the honour of its church are diminished. The bishop is satisfied that the priory's difficulties are genuine and allows it to appropriate the church of Westerham, with the chapel of Edenbridge annexed to it, of which it is already patron. The priory may enter the church of Westerham when Mgr Richard de Haute, the present rector, leaves or dies. Richard shall pay the priory an annual pension of 7d, payable as specified, as long as he remains rector. Reserving canonical obedience to the bishop and rights of visitation for himself and the archdeacon of Rochester. The bishop ordains a vicarage with a portion of 10 marks and tithes as specified, the ordination to take effect when Richard leaves or dies. The priory is to build a church-yard ('area') and a vicarage and maintain the vicarage buildings. The vicar shall be responsible for certain financial burdens as specified and the priory shall meet the others, estimated at 40 marks. The bishop, with the consent of his chapter, also reserves to himself an annual pension of 10s, payable as specified, in compensation for the income he would normally receive when the rectory is vacant. Given at Halling [Kent]. Endorsed with description in mid 14th and 18th cent hands.

Contents:
From: the prior and chapter of Canterbury Cathedral Priory Recites the composition of Boniface of Savoy, archbishop of Canterbury, dated 30 Jul 1268 at Teynham ('Thenham'), relating to vacancy jurisdiction in the diocese of Worcester. There has been a dispute between Canterbury Cathedral Priory and the prior and chapter of Worcester Cathedral Priory concerning jurisdiction in the city and diocese of Worcester when the see of Worcester is vacant. The dispute was heard by the papal legate and referred to Rome, but has now been settled by this composition. As soon as the see of Worcester becomes vacant, the prior of Worcester, or the subprior if the prior is dead or absent, shall notify the archbishop of the vacancy, or the official of the court of Canterbury if the archbishop is absent. The archbishop or his official shall then appoint the prior or subprior as his official to exercise episcopal jurisdiction in the city and diocese of Worcester as specified. Until the prior or subprior receives his commission, he can exercise episcopal jurisdiction by virtue of this composition. The prior or subprior shall send two parts of the profits he receives, except procurations in food and drink, to the archbishop and retain the third part for himself. Canterbury Cathedral Priory confirms this composition, reserving its right when the see of Canterbury is vacant, so that, if the sees of Canterbury and Worcester are vacant at the same time, the priory or its official shall have the same power as the archbishop has when the see is full. Endorsed with descriptions in late 13th and 14th cent hands and 'Compositio' in 18th cent hands.

Contents:
From: Martin, commissary of Robert Winchelsey, archbishop of Canterbury He has inspected the grant of Pope Boniface VIII, dated 29 Aug 1295 at Anagni (recited). Canterbury Cathedral Priory's petition shows that its income is diminishing from various causes as specified, including the flooding of its lands near the sea and the effect of the plague upon its livestock; a seaport, from which it used to receive £100 a year has also been lost. It also incurs heavy expenses in defending its rights. For these reasons it cannot provide its accustomed hospitality and opportunities for the honour of its church are diminished. The pope grants that the priory can appropriate the church of West Cliffe [Kent], which is not worth more than 20 marks a year. It can take possession of the church when the present rector leaves or dies, reserving a pension of £5 for the support of a vicar. The inspeximus is made and sealed with the seal of Martin's office at the request of the proctor of the prior and chapter. [Seal reunited with document on the basis of the entries in Beauvoir's catalogue and Bunce's index of seals, cited below.] Given at Canterbury. Endorsed with description in early 14th cent hand.

John Huggett by his will dated 30 Dec 1769 left his wife Anne all his land for life if she remained a widow and all his personal estate, subject to payment of his debts, and appointed her his sole executor. The will was proved on 3 Jan 1782. On 24 Jan 1782 Anne, as Anne Huggett, widow, daughter of Elizabeth Brazier, was granted the administration of the goods of Anne Kirby. Anne Kirby bequeathed Anne Huggett a moiety of her household furniture and other goods and left the residue of her goods and real estate to Elizabeth Brazier with the remainder to Anne Huggett. Elizabeth died about 10 days before John, who was then living abroad. John's personal estate does not cover his debts and his creditors are pressing his widow. The creditors require John's real estate to be subject to them and claim that as Elizabeth died in John's lifetime he became entitled to the residue of Anne Kirby's goods in right of his wife and that this should also be available for the payment of his debts. No date. [Date: latest date mentioned in document.] Endorsed with description in late 18th cent hands.

Contents:
From: Pope Alexander VI To: the abbot of St Augustine's Abbey, Canterbury; the abbot of Westminster Abbey; the abbot of St Albans Abbey The Pope has issued a bull dated 4 Oct 1494 at St Peter's, Rome (recited). No-one is to recover debts in connection with the execution of a testament or administration of goods in a secular court without producing the relevant probate documents sealed with the seal of the ordinary. Several ordinaries often proved one testament and the execution or administration was entrusted to several people because the deceased had goods in more than one diocese or jurisdiction. As a result, many disputes and scandals arose because of delays in execution or administration. To prevent this, from time immemorial, the archbishop of Canterbury, or the prior and chapter of Canterbury Cathedral Priory when the see is vacant, has had prerogative jurisdiction in testamentary matters as specified, which jurisdiction Cardinal John Morton, the present archbishop, is known to exercise. The pope confirms this prerogative jurisdiction, and, as a stronger guarantee ('potiori pro cautela'), concedes and elaborates it. The abbots are to cause the bull to be observed, by ecclesiastical censures if necessary and even by resorting to the secular arm, notwithstanding the constitution of Boniface VIII relating to judges acting outside their dioceses or any other papal constitutions or indults as specified to the contrary. Several alterations and interlineations in another hand. No date. [Date: handwriting.] Original dated 4 Oct 1494 at St Peter's, Rome. Signatures of L Podocatharus, in whose presence the original was registered, and P Tuba.

Edward grants the dean and chapter authority to make pipes of lead or timber under his pond with access to repair, maintain and renew them when necessary. He also allows them to dig up the ground, lay pipes, drain the pond and do anything else necessary to carry out the work. The dean and chapter will give notice of any work to Edward's park-keeper or other officer. They also agree to let the water run overnight after any work has been carried out to refill Edward's ponds.

From: the prior of Worcester Cathedral Priory, guardian of spiritualities in the city and diocese of Worcester sede vacante To: Richard Gyllyngham, prior of Canterbury Cathedral Priory; the chapter of Canterbury Cathedral Priory, acting sede vacante He has received the priory's mandate, dated 12 Jan 1375 at Canterbury (recited). The priory has received four letters, which it has already sent to him, the contents of which are given in the letters of Bernard Folcant, bishop of Pamplona, Ralph de Castello, bishop of Sinigaglia, and Giles Sancti Minuonis, provost of Valencia, papal nuncios, dated 23 Dec 1374 at Bruges and addressed to the clergy of England (DCc-ChAnt/P/61B, recited, with witness list). Pope Gregory XI has sent them to Flanders on the business of the English church and granted them expenses of 24 florins a day from the papal chamber ('ex camera'), to be paid by the English clergy. Recites the pope's letters to them, dated 16 Nov 1374 at Noves by Avignon [Bouches du Rhône, France]. The nuncios have sent a processus demanding payment of 4,416 florins as their expenses until 1 Dec, to be paid at Bruges within 30 days. They are now another 2,136 florins as procurations 89 days from 2 Dec to 28 Feb, plus 12 florins for the notary's salary. The money is either to be paid to them at Bruges or to their proctors, Peter Marchi of 'abbatis' or Michael de Strotis and John credi of 'Strotis', merchants living in London. The addressees are to enforce payment by ecclesiastical censure if necessary. It is necessary to levy an additional tax of ¼d in the mark to meet this payment, on top of the taxes of ½d in the mark and ¼d in the £ levied already. The prior is to arrange for these taxes to be levied and collected and have the money sent to 'Dominus' Robert, rector of St Gregory's, London, and 'Dominus' Ralph, rector of St Botolph's without Aldgate ('Aldrichesgate'), London, whom the priory has appointed as receivers. Anything already contributed will be allowed for and any excess will be kept to pay similar expenses in the future. The prior of Worcester is to certify the amount collected and the names of those who have and have not paid. The prior of Worcester has caused the tax of ¼d in the mark to be levied. The total amount due from the city and diocese of Worcester is £11 10s 2½d, but he has only been able to collect £9 18s 2¼d, because the temporalities and lands of the bishopric of Worcester and of divers aliens are in the king's hands. Some people have not paid and part of the money has already been sent to the receivers with the tax of ½d. The names of those who have and have not paid are contained in the annexed schedules. Given at Worcester [Worcestershire]. Endorsed 'Wygorn'' in late 14th cent hand.

Held by William of Eynsford, sheriff of Kent by the command of Henry I, king of England. 24 of the king's men and barons who knew the matter best and were old, wise and had good evidence were chosen [12 from Dover and 12 from Sandwich] of whom the names of the 12 from Dover are Wilfwine son of Henry, Wilfwine clod, Edwin, Knud ('canutus'), Keneward etc. They swore on the gospels, and, before the king's edict was read, Archbishop William de Corbeil addressed the people and warned them to tell the truth, which they agreed to do. The men who had been elected were sworn and stated that the port of Sandwich, toll and all customs ('consuetudines maritimas') belonged to the monks of Canterbury Cathedral Priory and no-one had any right in the port except them or their servants ('minister') from the place called 'aedburgegate' to 'merkesfleot' on either side of the river. The little ship ('navicula') for ferrying ('transfreto') should belong only to the priory and no-one should have any right in it. They had received these things from their ancestors and had heard them from their youth until now. Archbishop William, papal legate, John I, bishop of Rochester and Hugh of Trottiscliffe, abbot of St Augustine's Abbey, Canterbury, were present. No date.

Containing an account of the sequestration of Canterbury Cathedral Priory by the king's officers. At about the 3rd hour John Dymmok', messenger of Edward I, with the sheriff of Kent and others entered the priory's precincts at the king's command and caused certain departments ('officium') to be sealed, denying the monks access to food and drink. The king's men intimidated the monks. After lunch, the monks sent for the notary and instructed him to inspect what had been sequestrated and write down what he found. With Richard de Clyve, one of the monks, he went from department to department, secretly, for fear of the remaining royal officers, and found that a door from the cloister into a cellar, another door from the outside to the cellar where liveries to corrodians were made, the door of the great cellar, where the priory's food and drink were kept, and the doors of the larder, guest-house and granary had all been sealed. The seal was a small round seal of green wax, bearing the image of a ravening ('rapax') lion and the legend 'Ci Repos'. The notary also saw Richard de Celeby carrying the door-keeper's ('janitor') staff of office, who said that he had been appointed door-keeper by the king. Notarial attestation and sign of Henry de Tychefeld, clerk, of Winchester diocese, notary public, who wrote the document.

Contents:
From: Hugh de Forsham, commissary of Canterbury Mgr John Everhard, master ('rector') of the schools of Canterbury, has complained that his predecessors have exercised jurisdiction in matters relating to the schools since time immemorial and produced a commission from John Pecham, archbishop of Canterbury, dated 21 Mar 1292 at Wingham, giving the masters power to exercise this jurisdiction as they had as of old ('ab antiquo'). The master has also been accustomed to ask the rural dean of Canterbury to execute sentences of excommunication against offenders who have been cited to appear by the master's usher ('hostiarius'), but failed to do so. However, when John asked the present rural dean to execute sentences of suspension and excommunication against Richard de aula, who had been cited for assault and failed to appear, the rural dean refused, because the commission did not say how the jurisdiction was to be exercised. Hugh made held an inquiry with a jury of clerks and laymen. This showed that for over 40 years the master had, by his usher, cited offending scholars to appear before him in the schools, punished them and suspended and excommunicated those who did not appear and demanded that the rural dean execute the sentences of excommunication. Sealed with the seal of Hugh's office [no longer present]. Given at Canterbury. Endorsed 'de Scola Cant'' in early 14th cent hand.

Anyone absent after that date is to supply men for the defence of the country as necessary, according to the quantity of their property. If they do not do this, two parts of their income are to be levied for the defence of the country.

If Thomas persists, Anselm forbids all the bishops of Britain, under pain of anathema, to promote him to the episcopate or to receive him as a bishop or in any Christian fellowship if he obtains this promotion from bishops abroad. Anselm forbids Thomas to accept consecration as archbishop of York without making a profession of obedience to Canterbury, under pain of anathema. If Thomas relinquishes the archbishopric, Anselm will allow him to exercise the priestly office to which he has already been admitted. No date.

There has been a dispute between Mgr John de Warenne, Mgr Thomas Sampson, Mgr William de la Mare and 'Dominus' John de Wodehouse, canons of York Cathedral and residing there, and the warden and vicars choral of York Cathedral.

Party: Hubert Walter, archbishop of Canterbury Martin the clerk was awarded possession of the church of Loxhore ('Loccheshor'') [Devon] by the judges delgate of Pope Innocent III, but John the clerk despoiled the church, notwithstanding an appeal to the pope and an appeal to the archbishop for protection ('tuitio') of the same appeal. The archbishop cited John to appear on the morrow of the first Sun after Easter ('in crastino dominice qua cantatur Quasi modo') to answer for the spoilation. The parties appeared on that day and the dispute was settled amicably. John is to hold the church as vicar, but shall pay Martin an annual pension of 1 mark as specified. When John ceases to pay the pension he shall lose possession of the church and it shall return to Martin. To prevent disputes about the payment of the pension, the parties agreed that John should pay it at Pilton Priory [Devon] in the presence of the prior, or the the monks if he is absent, and that the priory should then hand it over to Martin. The parties submit themselves to the archbishop's jurisdiction. John shall indemnify Martin against any losses to the church to prevent future disputes. Many alterations and interlineations. No date.

Mgr Robert had been presented by the abbey.] Appeal made in the chapter of the rural deanery of Northampton. Robert de picheford complains that when Ottobon, the papal legate in England, had finished his legation and before his jurisdiction was perpetuated, [the prior of Bradley], by the authority of Ottobon's letters, passed a definitive sentence in favour of Robert corbet, without warning Mgr Robert. Mgr Robert appeals from this sentence to the pope and to the see of Canterbury for protection ('tuitio'). He complains that [the prior] heard witnesses in his absence and seeks letters of appeal ('apostoli'). He also appeals because the prior granted him absolution from the sentence of excommunication but refused to publish the absolution in places where the sentence had been published. Several alterations and interlineations. The appeal has been altered so that it is addressed to the prior, rather than an unspecified judge.

From: W[illiam de Swanton], dean of the collegiate church of South Malling [Sussex] To: Henry of Eastry, prior of Canterbury Cathedral Priory He has received a commission from Henry and the chapter of Canterbury Cathedral Priory, dated 18 Dec at Walworth [Surrey] (recited). This recites a writ of Edward II, addressed to the guardian of spiritualities of the see of Canterbury sede vacante, dated 2 Nov at Westminster [Middlesex] and witnessed by W de Norwico. The king required the prior to pay sums of money as specified from the goods of the rectors of Tarring, Tangmere and Pagham and the vicars of Pagham and Bersted [all Sussex] which Robert Winchelsey, archbishop of Canterbury, had sequestrated at the king's command. The money was owed for a tenth granted to the king's father in 1305-1306 (34EdwI) and was to be paid at the exchequer at Westminster by 20 Jan on behalf of the dean and chapter of Chichester, otherwise it would be levied from the priory's goods and lands. The priory commands the dean to collect the money and send it by 25 Dec and to accept no excuses. The dean wrote to the rural dean of Pagham about the benefices in his deanery. The rural dean of Pagham replied that he could not levy the money in full from the vicars of Pagham and Bersted unless it was taken from the Christmas offerings, but he would have it by 13 Jan. The rector of Tarring swore that he will pay the money specified in the king's writ and 100s to the priory's commissary on 20 Jan. The dean of South Malling has bound everyone named in the writ by ecclesiastical censure to save the priory harmless. Given at South Malling [Sussex].

Contents:
From: Pope Alexander VI [Beginning of document lost. Some details supplied from DCc-ChAnt/Z/223, which recites it.] No-one is to recover debts in connection with the execution of a testament or administration of goods in a secular court without producing the relevant probate documents sealed with the seal of the ordinary. Several ordinaries often proved one testament and the execution or administration was entrusted to several people because the deceased had goods in more than one diocese or jurisdiction. As a result, many disputes and scandals arose because of delays in execution or administration. To prevent this, from time immemorial, the archbishop of Canterbury, or the prior and chapter of Canterbury Cathedral Priory when the see is vacant, has had prerogative jurisdiction in testamentary matters as specified, which Cardinal John Morton, the present archbishop, exercises. The pope confirms this prerogative jurisdiction, and, as a stronger guarantee ('potiori pro cautela'), concedes and elaborates it. Several alterations and interlineations in another hand. No date. [Date: handwriting.] Original dated 4 Oct 1494 at St Peter's, Rome. Signatures of L Podocatharus, in whose presence the original was registered, and P Tuba.

Sense unclear in places.] The sailors of a ship called 'la kryland' of Zeeland? ('Seland') [Netherlands], carrying coals from Newcastle [upon Tyne, Northumberland], had reached London but were shipwrecked at Seasalter and Whitstable and lost most of their cargo. The priory's servants ('minister') arrested 4 of the wealthier sailors with the goods that had been saved from the ship. Evidence, including cocket letters and the testimony of Nicholas Brembre, mayor of London, and John Philipot of the same city, proves that the sailors are legitimate ('legalis') sailors and merchants. The king therefore commands the prior to have the sailors released and their goods restored to them. Dated 1RicII, rest of date lost. Given at Westminster [Middlesex].
