Mandate of Celestine III. addressed to the above, reciting that the prior and brethren of Briweton have complained to him, that when they had obtained canonically, and for some time possessed in peace the chapel of Ste. Regouefe, and a vavassour's holding, they were wrongfully and unlawfully despoiled thereof. They are therefore to compel those who detain the said chapel and holding to appear before them and do justice to the brethren.
Datum Laterani ii. non. (sic) Decembris pontificatus nostri anno primo.
They have accordingly summoned to their presence Nicolas who professed (gerebut) himself to be parson of that chapel, and Robert the priest who ministered there as a vicar etc. … As neither Robert, nor anyone for him put in an appearance, they decred that the proctor of the canons should be placed in possession of the fee they claimed and of the chapel, saving in all things the possession of Nicolas, etc. Subsequently on the day appointed for Nicolas to produce his witnesses, he neither came nor sent anyone to make answer for him. And when the evidence laid before them by the canons’ proctor had fully proved to them that the chapel was the right of the canons, they called together prudent and honourable men and, after weighing the matter, adjudged the chapel to the canons and their proctor by authority of the Pope committed to them, enjoining on Nicolas silence for ever as to his rights or his possession.

Footnotes

1 This 13th cent. Cartulary was bought by M. Frederic Galeran from the heirs of Abbé de la Rue, a well-known Norman antiquary, and bequeathed by him to M. le Prévost, who presented it, in 1842, to the Bibliothèque Nationale. It was not used by M. d'Anisy, and it differs wholly in arrangement from the Cartulary of Troarn at Caen, with which its text has been collated by the Editor.
2 The transcript, following the Cartulary, is wrongly punctuated, and should run:—“et ista sunt de propriis regis Willelmi: que vero dederunt ecclesie Sancti Martini barones ejus et coram eo concesserunt, hec sunt.”
3 Trans.: “unctus et coronatus fuit.”

35 Sic in Cartulary. The editor has the high authority of M. Paul Meyer for so rendering the word. It may be observed, however, that the phrase “sepiarum de batellis” occurs infra in a charter of the Abbey of La Luzerne.

53 It would seem, from the witnesses to the next charter, which was granted presumably about the same time, that the writer was a William de Moyon who died before Hugh [de Morville] became bishop of Coutances. As, in the original, the initial “H” is a subsequent insertion, it seems probable that the letter was retained by the canons till the grant became operative, and then despatched to the bishop who, at that time, was Hugh. By him and the chapter the grant was confirmed to the canons [Original in archives of La Manche; Trans. Vol III. fo. 346], and William de Moyon's charter (No. 504) “inspected” in March “1221” [MS. lat. 10,086, fo. 226].

58 This charter is entered on fo. 216 of the MS. lat., but the bishop is not there styled “elect,” and the witnesses’ names are not given (“presentibus multis”).

64 This charter, of great importance for the personnel of the Norman exchequer in 1176, appears to be no longer preserved among the archives of the Calvados. It is here given from the text in Mr. Wiffen's House of Russell (1833) which contains an engraving of the “sigillum Phillippe de Rosello” then appendant to it. There are fortunately still preserved in the liasse H. 322, two charters reciting this one, and explaining that “postea autem primo anno Johannis regis Anglie cum essem vidua ……. in plenis placitis domini regis, et ad scaccarium ejus,” Philippa renewed this grant, which had been questioned. There is also in these archives a charter of Ranulf earl of Chester confirming Philippa's grant, its seal, on a parchment tag, displaying a lion passant.
