Upon this Master John obtained papal letters to the abbot of St.Augustine's, Canterbury, who committed the cause to Master Walter de Sine Muro, canon of Beaune; and on the cause being remitted to the pope, John, cardinal of St.Laurence's in Lucina, was appointed to hear it, with the consent of Master William de Sancto Edwardo, proctor of the abbot and convent. It was proved that the church of Hartburne had been given by the bishop to the abbot and convent, who were therefore absolved from this claim, but sentenced to pay to Master John an annual pension of 25 marks, until they made provision to him of a benefice, value 80 marks, and to pay costs and damages; and if the abbot and convent made provision of a benefice of less than 80, and at least 50 marks, Master John should hold with it the church of Wingrave, and the pension should cease. But if the abbot and convent gave a benefice, value 80 marks, to anyone else, then they were bound to pay as pension the value of the benefice, to cease on his promotion. This sentence the pope confirms. The procuration of the abbot and convent to William de Herton, monk, and William de Sancto Eadwardo is dated 4 Id. April 1256.
