LIST 18 PREBENDARIES OF HINTON
Hinton is not mentioned by name in Domesday but may well have been part of
the manor of Bertune held by the church of Hereford in the 11th cent., on which
4 clks, held 4½ hides in 1086 (DB I 181c; for discussion, see J. Barrow, 'A
Lotharingian in Hereford' p. 37; for location, see B. Coplestone-Crow,
Herefordshire Place-Names p. 101). The preb. of Hinton is stated in the mid 13thcent. cath. statutes to owe 10 trugs of wheat and 20 of oats to the common fund
(LS II 55). In c. 1291 the holding of can. Pontius at Hynyton, consisting of a car.,
some rents, and pleas and perquisites, was assessed in the taxation of pope Nicholas
at £5 6s 8d (Taxatio p. 169b); in 1294 the preb. of Hynetone was assessed at 12m
in a list entered into bp. Swinfield's register (Reg. Swinfield p. 305). Valor III 10
assessed the preb. at £7 17s 8½d gross, £7 9s l0d net.
Hugh of Moûtiers
Can. by 24 June 1273 (see cans. with unident. prebs., list 36). D. during the
night of 13/14 May 1290, after which his preb., specified as Hinton, was given to
John de Shelvinge, but then taken by Pontius de Cors (Reg. Swinfield pp. 238,
John de Shelvinge
Still a minor 12 Apr. 1287 (Reg. Swinfield p. 526), but pr. by 14 May 1290
when he was coll. to the preb. of Hinton vacated by the d. of Hugh of Moûtiers
(ibid. p. 528). However, Pontius de Cors took the preb. instead and on 31 May
John was coll. to Pion (see Piona Parva, list 27).
M. Pontius de Cors
Intruded himself by papal prov. into preb. of Hinton vac. by the d. of Hugh of
Moûtiers, 14 May 1290 (Reg. Swinfield p. 528); was coll. to the preb. of Hinton
by bp. Swinfield 8 Jan. 1291 (ibid. pp. 248, 528). Occ. holding preb. of Hynyton
c. 1291 (Taxatio p. 169). Occ. without surname, as resident can., preb. unspecified,
29 Sept. 1295 (Capes, Charters p. 169). Prob. identifiable with the M. Pontius de
Salino (fn. 64) who received papal prov. to become can. of Lincoln 6 March 1292, who
was stated already to be a can. of Hereford (CPL I 557), and who occ. 2 March
and 14 Apr. 1297 as preb. of Hyneton (Cal. Chanc. Rolls 1277-1326 pp. 26, 29).
Obtained archdcnry. of Oxford late in 1297 or early 1298 (before 21 Feb.), but
res. on papal mand. of 24 Nov. 1298 (1 Fasti III 38-9). Had vacated preb. of
Hinton by 14 Oct. 1297 (Reg. Swinfield p. 531).
M. John de Bestan
Coll. to the preb. of Hinton by papal prov. and notwithstanding the
installation of John de Shelvinge, 3 Feb. 1295 (Reg. Swinfield p. 529).
However, this coll. seems to have been void, as Pontius de Cors was still in
control of the preb. in 1297. In Aug. 1295 John de Bestan had been coll. to
the preb. of Huntington (list 20). Previously archdcn. of Shropshire (res. 1289
(list 7); and see also list 36).
Richard de Swinfield
Coll. to the preb. of Hinton, vac. by Pontius de Cors, 14 Oct. 1297 (Reg.
Swinfield p. 531). Coll. to the preb. of Bartonsham 4 Aug. 1299 (list 8), and at the
same time M. Roger of Canterbury was coll. to the preb. of Hinton.
M. Roger of Canterbury
Archdcn. of Shropshire; coll. 4 Aug. 1299 (Reg. Swinfield p. 531; list 7); is
almost certainly the unnamed clk. who was coll. to the preb. of Preston 12 Nov.
1299 (Reg. Swinfield p. 531; see list 30, and 2 Fasti II 26).
M. Thomas de Lugoure
D. in this preb. by 3 Nov. 1313 (Reg. Swinfield p. 542; 2 Fasti II 26). Also can.
and chanc. of Wells (1 Fasti VII 104-5, 2 Fasti VIII 7).
