Ormesby (continued).

203. (C. p. 153; D. art. 78).—Agreement between the abbot and convent of Holm and Sir Thomas de Neuton, namely that the abbot grants to fee farm to Sir Thomas and his heirs all Ormesby for 14s. in silver yearly. It is not to be alienated without consent of the abbot, etc. If the rent is not paid, the abbot may distrain all the goods of Sir Thomas in Ormesby or even in Neuton. Witnesses—Sir Robert de Feritate, Master Adam de Crokedayke, Adam de Thoresby, Hugh de Brumfeld, William de Osmunderlaw, etc. [Thomas de Neuton was one of the conservators of the peace for Cumberland (John Denton, Accompt, 170) in 1287.]

(C. p. 154).—"Look for the charter about the quarry at the end of the book." [This may possibly refer to no. 54a, or a leaf lost before the book was bound up. P. 155 begins with the end of no. 201, crossed off.]


204. (C. p. 155; D. art. 75).—Roger de Lyndeby [see no. 68] grants to Holm abbey seven acres arable in Dundrahe, i.e. the whole ploughed field (cultura) called Austine flat between Tathes and Neulandes, which land he bought from John de Larges before the county [-court] of Cumberland; service to the lord of Dundrahe 2s. 4d. yearly for all secular services. He gives his body to be buried at Holm. If he dies at a distance he wishes the monks nevertheless to keep the gift. [John Denton (Accompt, 31) says that the wife of Roger de Lindeby was Agnes Dundraw. We have not been able to identify John de Larges. Date c. 1230.]

204 a. (H. 1; D. art. 48).—Final Concord in the king's court at Carlisle on the Sabbath after St. Luke [Oct. 18th], 6 Richard [I], before Roger Bigot, earl of Norfolk, R[ ], archdeacon of Hereford, William de Glaunvill and William Hervey, justices, and others; between the monks of Holm and Gilbert f. Gilbert [f. Serlo; see nos. 89, 90], concerning houses he has built to their detriment. He will remove the houses within 40 days and put them close to the church land at the head of Drumdrah rigg to the east; and at the west part of the same church land begin to build nine messuages to the west, so that each messuage will have six perches in breadth across Drumdrahrigg towards the west. Note that the houses Gilbert is to build will be placed at the head of the land of Drumdrahrigg to the south, so that he and his heirs will never make any house or building nearer to the said abbey of Holmcoltran [1194].
