Appropriation anew, with exemplifications, to the abbot and convent of St. Werburg's, Chester, of the church of Astbury, and of the churches of Aston and Weston-on-Trent, of their patronage, value together 300 marks, that of the monastery being 2000, as they doubt whether the two appropriations formcrly made by Richard, bishop of Lichfield, by his ordinary authority, hold good. The bishop's letters for the appropriation of Astbury—dated in the chapel of his manor of Heywoden, in the year of the Incarnation 1393-4, indiction 1, anno 5 Boniface IX. the last day of January, in the presence of Masters Richard Conyngeston, D.C.L. and John Sutton, canons of Lichfield, and John Layot, rector of Denford in the diocese of Lincoln, witnesses, and attested by William Thurbache, clerk, of the diocese of Hereford, public notary by papal and imperial authority, the bishop's scribe and registrar— state, among other things, that the land from which they were wont to derive the greater part of their victuals, being situate by the seashore, has been irrecoverably destroyed (deleta) by the tides, that their buildings are in need of repair, that the rents and services which their tenants and serfs used to pay have been irrecoverably diminished and withdrawn under pretext of pestilences, that the licence of the king of England and France has been granted, that a portion is to be reserved for a perpetual vicar to be presented to the bishop for institution, and impose a yearly pension, cess, or rent of 2 marks to be paid at Michaelmas to the bishop, 26s. 8d. to the dean and chapter of Lichfield, the like to the prior and chapter of Coventry, and the like to the archdeacon of Chester, the latter to be paid in the collegiate church of St. John's, Chester. The said notary notes and approves the erasure ‘of the words 2 marks and 26s. 8d. in the 25th line, and 26s. 8d. in the 26th line, reckoning from the top.’ The ratification by the dean and chapter of Lichfield is dated in their chapter house, 9 April 1394; and that by the prior and chapter of Coventry in their chapter house, 10 April in the said year, and the consent of William de Neuhagh, archdeacon of Chester, at Chester, 12 April 1394.

The bishop's letters of appropriation of the said church (here once spelt Leymondestowe)—granted on petition of dean John Wodehous, dated in the chapel of the bishop's palace, Lichfield, 22 October in the year of the Incarnation 1393, indiction 2 (sic), anno 4 Boniface IX. in the presence of Master Richard Conyngeston, D.C.L. the bishop's official, and Master John Sutton, canons of Lichfield, and Master William Rodbourn, public notary, as witnesses, and attested by the above William Thurbache, here not styled registrar—state that the licence of Richard, king of England and France, and lord of Ireland, has been given, order that the church shall be served by a stipendiary and resident priest as chaplain, to be appointed and removed by the dean, impose a yearly cess or rent of 3s. 4d. to be paid to the bishop, and the like to the dean and chapter of Lichfield, to the prior and chapter of Coventry, and to the archdeacon of Chester, the latter to be paid in St. John Baptist's, Chester.
