Islekirk (continued).

225. (C. p. 169; D. art. 52).—Thomas de Lascel has inspected and confirms King John's and King Henry's charters [nos. 217, 218] concerning the hermitage of St. Hilda. He allows to the monks of Holm pasture for cattle, etc. and right of way in his wood of Bothilton [Bolton] but they are not to take green wood without leave. Their pigs can feed there except in time of pannage, and if they stray out of bounds they are to be driven back without damage. The abbey is to allow him to assart a piece of his wood, if the king permits, and this will not be a loss to the abbey pasture. Witnesses [from H. 1]—Sir John de Daivill, justice of the Forest on this side Trent, Thomas de Multon, William de Dak[er], William de Vallibus, Richard Laton, Radulph de Glasson, Richard de Neuton, Robert de Mulcaster, Thomas de Bello Campo, Ysaac de Ireby, etc. [c. 1227.]
