III. CARTA HENRICI REGIS SECUNDI.

Henricus, Rex (fn. 1) Anglie, et Dux Normannie et Aquitanie, et Comes Andegavensis, Archiepiscopis, Episcopis, Comitibus, Baronibus, Justiciariis, Vicecomitibus, Ministris, et omnibus hominibus suis Francis et Anglis, Salutem. Sciatis me concessisse et carta mea presenti confirmasse donationem et Ecclesias illas quas Ricardus de Beumeis, (fn. 2) Episcopus London, dedit Ecclesie Beati Pauli et Godefrido, ejusdem loci Thesaurario, (fn. 3) in perpetuam Thesaurariam; videlicet, Ecclesias de Sudmonster, et Ecclesiam de Aldeburi, et Ecclesiam de Pelham Ricardi de Furnell, aliamque de Pelham (fn. 4) Willielmi de Sarneriis. Quare volo et firmiter precipio, quod hec donatio eidem Godefrido et Ecclesie Beati Pauli London teneatur firmiter et indiscusse, et honorifice, et rationabiliter, et integre, cum omnibus pertinentiis earum, in terris et decimis et dignitatibus, sicut Carta predicti Episcopi ct Carta ejusdem Ecclesie Capituli testantur.

Teste [Ebor. Episcopo etc. apud Monstor]. (fn. 5)
