Between Maurice de Creun and Roger son of William de Hontingefelt, by Wido son and heir of Maurice and Alexander his steward, whom Maurice attorned in his place to win or to lose, concerning this plea, before William Basseth and Nigel son of Alexander, whom the king's justices had sent from the chief court to Maurice to hear this; before whom this fine was made and recorded, and granted by Maurice, concerning the advowson of the church of Toft, and concerning the vill of Friston', and concerning Maurice's whole tenement in the vill of St. Botulf, and concerning the vill of Warneborne, and concerning the service of William Langevin of Quappelade, and concerning the service of Alan de Roches of Friston', and concerning the service of Walter son of Matfrid of Friston', and concerning all other plaints and matters touching lands and services, whereof then and formerly there was a strife between them. And whereupon there was a plea between them; to wit, that Maurice has granted from himself and his heirs to Roger and his heirs the vill of Toft with the appurtenances, excepting the advowson of the church of Toft which remained to Maurice and his heirs for ever. And he has granted to Roger and his heirs his whole fee in Francton' with the appurtenances, excepting the service of Hugh de Boeby in Dunington', which remained to Maurice and his heirs. Maurice has also granted to Roger the service of Thomas de Muleton' in respect of the whole tenement which he held of him, and the service of Walter son of Matfred in respect of the tenement which he held of him in Pinchebech, and the service of Walter Malregard in respect of the tenement which he held of him in Titton; the services of which tenements Alan de Creun gave to William, Roger's father. Maurice has also granted to Roger the manor of Suthorp with its appurtenances in exchange for the manor of Warneborne which he claimed of the gift of Maurice. And Maurice has given Roger in the fair of St. Botulf certain land next the land of Herbert the Clerk towards 'le Nort,' from the land of John the Cook to the road; and on the other side of the road towards 'le Nort' certain land 12 feet in breadth, and in length from the road which is before the house of Richard son of Guse to the road; and certain land next the land of Walter le Neucomen towards 'le suht,' which is 60 feet in length, and in breadth from the road to the water, without any retainment. Maurice has also remised to Roger and his heirs the service of one knight and the fourth part of the service of one knight in respect of the service of the fee of four knights which Roger owed to him. And for all these tenements which have been given and granted to him in lands and services, Roger and his heirs shall do to Maurice and his heirs the service of two knights and three parts of one knight for all service. And for this grant and gift Roger has quitclaimed from himself and his heirs to Maurice and his heirs the advowson of the church of Toft and all demands in respect of lands or services touching which there was heretofore a strife between them.]

[This is the final concord which was made by a friendly composition between the nuns of Bulingtun' and the nuns of Steinfeld with respect to a dispute which there was between them concerning the land in which the nuns of Bulingtun' claimed common pasture against the nuns of Steinfeld; whereupon, before the justices of the lord the king who were that year (fn. 1) at Lincoln, to wit, before Hugh de Morewic, Ralf Murdac, William le Vauassur and Thomas de Esseburne, they mutually promised to abide by an arbitration made by friends. And the friends among whom they promised, and who made the peace, were the abbots of Reuesbi, Topeholme and Barling', and the priors of Kirkested and Louth Park, who represented their abbots, since the abbots themselves could not be present, and Master Richard de Kime, canon of Lincoln, and Roger de Benigwr' and Stephen de Wikingebi, who were on the side of the nuns of Bulingtun', and Master Alexander, canon of Lincoln, and Richard le Vauassur, who represented his brother William, and William de Paris, who were on the side of the nuns of Steinfeld, to make this peace.
This concord was made in a friendly way by the assent and goodwill of both parties; to wit, that both the convents shall have free egress and ingress to their own [property], according to the metes and bounds which have been established between them. And the pasture about which there was strife shall remain to the nuns of Steinfeld. And moreover Philip de Kim' has given them all the land which he had outside near the dike which runs from the boundary of Neubel to the boundary between Bulingt' and Applei. And the nuns of Bulingt' shall have in the land of the nuns of Steinfeld from the aforesaid dike to the water of Barling' one perch of land in breadth next the boundary of Neubel to enlarge their road, provided that the perch shall be 16 feet. And for this land Philip de Kime has given the nuns of Steinfeld an exchange from his own demesne. And both the convents shall have power to enclose their portions from the dike and from the hedge towards themselves, provided that no one shall erect houses or sheepfolds or buildings from the dike which is on the west side of the park of Philip de Kime to the boundary of Neubele. And that this concord may be confirmed and ratified the seals of the three abbots aforesaid have been in witness set to this writing, and the seal of Philip de Kime, and the seals of the two convents of Buligtun' and Steinfeld.]
Hec est finalis concordia que est facta amicabili composicione inter moniales de Bulingtun' et moniales de Steinfeld, de controuersia que fuit inter eas de terra in qua moniales de Bulingtun' clamabant communem pasturam uersus moniales de Steinfeld; unde compromiserunt in amicos coram justiciis (fn. 2) domini Regis qui fuerunt eo anno [quaere A.D. 1185–6 (fn. 1) ], apud Lincolniam, scilicet, coram Hugonis (fn. 3) de Morewic et Radulfo Murdac et Willelmo le Vauassur et Toma de Esseburne; et amici in quos compromiserunt, et qui pacem fecerunt, fuerunt abbates de Reuesbi et de Topeholme et de Barling', et priores de Kirkested et de Parcholude, qui pro abbatibus suis fuerunt cum ipsi adesse non possent, et magister Ricardus de Kime, canonicus Lincolniensis, et Rogerus de Benigwr' et Stephanus de Wikingebi, qui fuerunt ex parte monialium de Bulingtun', et magister Alexander, canonicus Lincolniensis, et Ricardus le Vauassur, qui fuit pro Willelmo fratre suo, et Willelmus de Paris, qui fuerunt ex parte monialium de Steinfeld, ad faciendam hanc pacem. Hec concordia facta fuit amicabiliter assensu et bona voluntate partis utriusque; scilicet, quod uterque conuentus habebit liberum exitum et introitum in suo secundum divisas et terminos qui constituti sunt inter eos. Et pastura unde contencio fuit remanebit monialibus de Steinfeld. Et insuper Philippus de Kim' dedit eis totam terram quam habuit extra juxta fossatum quod tendit a diuisa de Neubel vsque ad diuisam inter Bulingt' et Applei. Et moniales de Bulingt' habebunt in terra monialium de Steinfeld a fossato predicto vsque ad aquam de Barling' unam perticatam terre in latum juxta diuisam de Neubel ad dilatandam uiam suam, ita quod pertica sit sedecim pedum. Et pro hac terra dedit Philippus de Kime escambium monialibus de Steinfeld de sua propria demenia. Et uterque conuentus poterit claudere partem suam de fossato et de sepe uersus se, ita quod domos aut bercarias aut hedificia aliquis non faciat a fossato quod in occidentali parte parci Philippi de Kime vsque ad diuisam de Neubele. Et ut hec concordia firma sit et rata apposita sunt in testimonium huic scripto trium abbatum predictorum sigilla et sigillum Philippi de Kime et sigillum utriusque conuentus de Buligtun' et de Steinfeld.

And be it known that John le Dekene was present in court and granted this concord.
