Syllabus EntryFoedera Text
April 15. Declaration, at a meeting of the great council at Westminster, by the abp. of York, chancellor, that the duke of Bedford wishes the K. to be crowned in France; that the revenues of the kingdom are not sufficient for the war; and that 200 lances and 1,200 archers are necessary to continue the siege of Orleans.
O. x. 413. H. iv. p. iv. 143.
Super Coronatione Regis in Francia fienda, & Obsidione circa Villam Aurelianensem.
An. 7. H. 6. Ex Bibl. Cot. Cleopatra F. 4.
Decimo quinto Die Aprilis, Anno septimo, apud Westmonasterium, in Magno Concilio, specialiter convocato, Dominus Eborum Cancellarius proposuit Causas Congregationis dicti Concilii,
Primo, quia Dominus Bedfordiae per Literas suas, aliàs Concilio Privato Regis directas, Declarantes desiderium Concilii Franciae ac aliorum Subditorum ibidem de habendo Regem ibidem Coronatum, ad effectum ut Proceres dicti Regni & alii possint eidem facere, hoc facto, Homagium & Fidelitatem,
In qua Materia Domini de Privato Concilio Communicârunt; sed quia Materia est satis ardua & gravis, & indiget Consilio & Advisamento Sanioribus quae fieri poterunt, Domini ordinârunt dictum Concilium Convocandum, in quo quilibet Dominorum Spiritualium & Temporalium & aliorum ad illud convocatorum poterunt super Praemissis eorum dare Advisamentum & Consilium.
Secundo, quia per Dominum Thesaurarium, Termino Hillarii proximò praeterito, monstratus fuit Privato Concilio Status Regni, per quem evidenter apparet quòd omnes Reventiones Regni non suppetunt ad Guerram ipsius necessaria Supportanda, per Summam xx Mil. Marcarum per Annum,
Et attento quòd Dominus Rex &c. de verisimili necessariò exiget majores Sumptus & Expensas quàm prius petebat, quòd quilibet Dominorum super isto etiam Articulo plenè & maturè deliberatum suum daret Responsum.
Tertio, quia Dominus Bedfordiae, post Obsidionem per, bonae recordationis, Comitem Sarum, circa Villam Aurelianensem positam, scripsit Concilio Regis quòd, attento quòd plures Soldarii dicti Comitis, tàm in Vita sua, quàm post, Illicenciati a dicta Obsidione Recesserunt, ita quòd absque nova Retinentia & magnis Sumptibus dicta Obsidio teneri non poterat, pro qua causa petebat mitti in Franciam, in Supportationem dictae Obsidionis & Servitii Regii, CC. Lanceas, & MCC. Arch. ad Expensas Regis, pro Dimidio Anno vadiatas;
In qua Materia etiam petiit Advisamentum Dominorum.
Alia habuit imposterùm pro Loco & Tempore eis consimiliter, ut asseruit, aperienda.

De Cardinali Angliae, super Interessendo in Solemniis Sancti Georgii.
An. 7. H. 6. Ibid.
Decimo septimo die Aprilis, Anno septimo, apud Westmonasterium, in praesentia Regis, Quaesitum fuit, an Dominus Cardinalis deberet, ut petebat a Rege, admitti ad faciendum Servitium apud Wyndesore, in Festo S. Georgii, ratione Episcopatûs Wintoniae, quem praetendit simul cum dicto Statu Cardinalatûs Retinere, necne?
Qui omnes in Substantia Concordârunt, interrogati singillatim, quòd vellent ante omnia praeferre Statum Regni,
Et, quia Materia est Ambigua & Indecisa, Determinârunt quòd non veniet illuc ex praedicta causa, & quòd mittatur sibi pro abstinendo a dicto Itinere, tanquam Episcopus Wyntoniae, pro praesenti,
Quam Conclusionem Rex ore proprio confirmavit, & mandavit quòd mittatur Domino Cardinali de abstinendo, &c.

De Mandato Regis sibi dato, venit Westmonasterium,
Et, in praesentia Regis, post Declarationem de Jure suo, quod, ratione dicti Episcopatûs Wyntoniae, per xxiv Annos pacificè obtinebat, de interessendo Solempniis Sancti Georgii apud Wyndesore, petiit a Rege sibi exhiberi Justitiam in praedicto Casu, vel sibi declarari causam contrariam, ad quam respondere possit admitti,
Super quo Dimissus est ad Partem,
Et Domini,
Singillatim interrogati de dicendo videre eorum, quare Rex deberet ponere in dilatione Adventum suum ad praesens ad Wyndesore?
Dixerunt in effectu quòd, quia erat Res invissa esse Cardinalem & similiter retinere in Anglia Episcopatum Wyntoniensem, nolebant nec audebant praejudicare Regi, durante minori Aetate suâ, nec est intentio eorum praejudicare sibi nec Ecclesiae suae,
Et, quia timent quid inde eis poterit sequi aut evenire, supplicârunt &c. ut heri, quòd velit abstinere ad praesens.

O. x. 419. H. iv. p. iv. 145.
Petitiones H. Cardinalis, ex parte Papae, pro Expeditione CRUCIATAE contra Bohemos; ac INDENTURA de Appunctuamentis inde confecta.
Remembrance Of Thinges, that J. H. Cardinal and Legat &c. aske and desire of the King my Souverain Lord, and of his Noble Conseil, on the Behalve of oure Holy Fadre, for the weel Sustenyng, Defense, and Exaltacion of oure Christien Feith.
An. 7. H. 6. Bibl. Cot. Cleopatra F. 4. An. 7. H. 6.
Furst, sith it hath liked my Souverain Lord hereafore, at y'instance and desire of oure Holy Fadre, to graunte unto Maister Cunezo, his Ambassatour, People and Captaines notable out of this Land, to y'entent abovesaid, as appereth more clerely by y'answeres, yeven unto him in writyng, by my Souverain Lords Conseil; That it like unto my Souverain Lord to Graunte that the Quantitee of that People may strecche unto the Nombre of vC. Speres, and vM. Archeres; and that I may have such Captaines, to Lede hem, as I may trete yerto.
Item, Secundly, that I may Publishe and doo Publishe in alle Places of this Land, where me thenketh nedeful, THE CRUCIAT, whiche is committed unto me of oure Holy Fadre, and execute all that longeth therto, considered that CRUCIATS have been late seen in this Land, where the cause was not so greet.
Item, as touching the furst, that is to say, the havyng overe of Poeple, wherto must many other things be dependent, as accessoires to the principal; I aske and desire that I may doo Proclame, in alle Places of this Land, what Wages I wol yeve to suche as wol goo in y'Expedition of the Faith.
Item, that suche, as shal goo in this Expedition and Cause of God, may stand in the Kings Protection, as thei doon that goon overe in the Kings Voiages, as was behight and graunted unto the said Maister Cuntzo.
Item, that such Constable and Mareschal, as I shall depute and assigne for the Reule of the Kings Poeple that shal goo, may make suche Statuts and Ordenances as shall be thought necessaire and expedient for the good Gouvernance and Salvation of hem, the said Constable and Mareschal, and thaire Ordennances and Statuts to be obeied, under such Peines as shal be thought couvenable to be executed, freely and leefully in alle thaim that Disobeye, or that be punyshable, after the quantitee of the Offense; Considering that, for to lede overe eny Multitude of Poeple withoute Lawe to Reule hem by, were for to lese all or a greete partie of hem, whiche God defende.
Item, that the Admirall, or his Deputees, have souffisant Charge and Commandement to ordeine and brynge Shipping and Navire, suffisant for the faid Poeple at suche Ports, and at suche Tyme, as shall be advised and thoughr nacessaire, and at suche Wages as the King yeveth.
Item, as touching the Seconde, that is to say the Publication of the CRUCIAT, if any Man wol, oonly of Devotion and for Soule Heele, goo overe in the saide Expedition, that he may have fredom and licence for to goo, and under suche Proteccion as above; howe be it that myn entente is not, under colour of the said CRUCIAT, to suffre noo Religieux Men, namely in noo greete Nombre, or suche that I may have eny Conjecturation wolde take Benefice of the saide CRUCIAT, rather for to walke in Apostasie, than for desir of Merit, to goo over in the saide Expedition.
Item, that yoo, that wol oonly goo for to Reioisslie the Benefice of the saide CRUCIAT without Wages, stande under the Lawes, Statuts, and Ordennances to bee maad by the Constable and Mareschal as is abovesaid, aswell as thei that shall goo for Wages; Considered that, sith all be the King's People, it is necessarie to kepe under goode Reule, and preserve from all Meschiefs and Inconvenients, oon as oyer.
Item, I truste that my Souverain Lord and the Noble Lordes of his Conseil, Grauntyng yees Articles, as I trust to God ye wol, wol not naye me other things, lasse than theese, nedeful to the Furthering therof, if eny suche come to mynde hereafter; for peraventure it cometh not to Remembrance now that wol hereafter, which shal algate be necessarie for the good and effectual spede of hem.
Thees be th'Answers yeven to my Lord the Cardinal &c. upon the Requestes maad by him unto the King on the behalve of oure Holy Fadre the Pope, for the weel Sustenyng, Defense, and Exaltation of the Christien Feith &c.
Furst, as toward the Publication of the CRUCIAT, and Fredom and Licence to be yeven to the Kings Subgitts to execucion of the meenes comprised therinne, to obtene by the Benefice of the same CRUCIAT;
It is conceived that the said meenes rest in two things,
Oon is the yifte of Goodes to be maad by the Kings Subgitts, in Promotion and Furyering of Godd's Cause and Querele ayenst the Hereticks &c. an oyer is the Personel goyng of the Kings Subgitts out of this Land, of theire oune Devotion, in the saide Godd's Cause and Querele.
And, as to the Furst, the King, by th'advis of his Counsail, agreeth him to that, that his Subgitts, that of Devotion wol yeve of theire Goodes to Furthering of the saide Cause, shall freely mowe do it with the Provision that followeth; that is to say,
That there be Deputed Persones notable and suffisant, the which shall receive alle the Goodes, so to be yeven of Devotion by the Kings Subgitts, the whiche Persones shall make feith, that they shall treuly certifie the King and his Conseil of alle theire Receits,
And, as ferforth as it shal stande in Gold and Silver, nought to passe out of this Land, but to be emploied, according to the Kings Lawes, in Merchandises, in suche wyse as it shal mowe by weye of Eschange be delivered in Paiement to theim of the Kings Subgitts, that shall be Waged in this Land to goo overe in the Cause of the Feith ayenst the said Heretikes.
Item, as toward the Personell goyng of the Kynges Subgittes out of this Land, of their Devotion, in the said Querele,
It is considered, on that oo part, that, for the nonn certaintee of the Nombre of hem that shall wol so to goo, my said Lord the Cardinal hath desired to have, without hem, by Licence of the King, vC. Speres, and vM. Bowes, at Wages.
And it is also Considered, on that other part, howe that the Poeple of this Land is Lessed and Decressed of late tyme, by Mortalite, Werres, and in other divers wyses, and namely of Defensable Men and Persons like for the Werre,
And, overe this, the greete necessitee that the King hath of suche Persones, for the Defense, keeping seure, and sauf Garde of his Reaumes, Landes, Lordships, and Subgittes, and in especial of this his Reaume,
So that it is thought right perillous and dangerous to suffre the Kings Poeple to paffe out of this Land, on eny other Behalve, to eny other Strange Cuntree, that is not of the Kings Obeissance,
