The 25-year segments begin with a vertical bar and end with a vertical bar minus. Avoid other more complex codes. If you want to append a translation, provide a completely unique address surrounded by double brackets: ProPre H1275 A Tr. Such an address indicates sector and year, the A indicates it is the first document entered for that year and term, the Tr indicates it is a translation. That will constitute a unique address.

M1354 B: Leicestershire. Quare impedit (invoking Provisors). Rex v. Simon Josep de Millecotes. Adam de Boothby late abbot of Peterborough was seised of the advowson of Bringhurst and presented Thomas Welton de Ashele cleric, who was admitted. The abbot died in the reign of Edward III and then Thomas died on June 12 1349, so that the church was vacant. Simon Josep by color of a papal provision made to him intruded himself after the month next after the vacancy of the church. That intrusion was not allowed according to the constitution of Provisors unless he accepted he accepted it within a month from the time of the vacancy. Josep in fact accepted it on 13 July 1349 and not before. Thus Josep occupied the church by intrusion until the temporalities of the abbacy came into the king's hands by the death of a certain Henry late abbot, so that it pertains to the king now to present, and Josep impedes. Joseph did not admit the factual basis of the king's claim and argued that Provisors allowed him to accept within a month of his notice of the vacancy of the church, not a month after the actual vacancy began. The king's attorney then added that Thomas had died on his parish and Josep had been in the county. They came to issue on whether Simon had accepted within a month of his predecessor's death. On 13 February 1355 the king sent a letter patent to the court confirming Josep in his position because he had been assured that Josep had just title, had been justly in possession for three years, and had not secured ecclesiastical court processes against the king's presentation; the king also revoked his own presentation.

  • M1355 A: Rex v. John bishop of Hereford, on the allegation that he had violated royal prohibition and excommunicated all who had violated his parks and refused to revoke the excommunication, although that jurisdiction is royal. Jury verdict against the bishop and adjourned for judgment. [56], [57] rcp
  • M1356 A: Premunire. Middlesex. Rex v. William de Corbrigge, Thomas Michel, and Robert Maunell. [58] rcp
  • E1357 A: Premunire. London. Rex v. Master Simon de Sagio, Roger de Shipbroke cleric, John Sperman cleric, William Woderove cleric, and Thomas de Cestre cleric. Concerning the king's free chapel of Shrewsbury, of which Thomas de Baddeby was dean. [59] rcp
  • M1357 A: Premunire (with some similarity to prohibition). London. Thomas de Seton knight (qui tam) v. Lucy late the wife of Robert de Coksyde and William de Langeton notary. Lucy was already in prison. [60], pleading: [61] & [62]: Thomas accused Lucy of citing him to answer her in Roman court over lands and goods worth 3,500 ps.; he alleged damages of 10,000 ps. Lucy pleaded that right after the death of Robert de Cokside her late husband she took a vow of chastity in the presence of many and would have taken the oath before the ordinary except that she was detained by grave sickness. At that point she was assigned many goods as the purpart by church law of Robert's goods. She also held lands: some in dower and others at term of life and some heritably. Thomas, attracted more by the wealth than by marriage, beat and imprisoned her and married her against her will. Lucy maintained that she escaped as soon as she could and immediately went to the bishop of Durham to complete her oath of chastity. Concerning the injuries she received from Thomas, she appealed from the bishop to Rome. By his procurator Thomas asked for her to be delivered to him as his wife, whereas Lucy claimed that she persisted in her oath of chastity and that the marriage should be dissolved. Thomas accepted the jurisdiction of the Roman court. Thomas was thus cited to appear. But because Thomas had her goods and had occupied her lands by reason of the marriage, she had no money to support herself, so her plea for support is the plea here complained of. She proceeded by the testimony of witnesses to proceed each of the allegations, and Thomas defaulted, so that she prevailed by definitive sentence, with the divorce being the substantive case and the rest being accessory issues. The marriage was thus dissolved and she was awarded damages to be paid by a certain day, and Thomas accepted that he would pay. He did not pay and thus incurred a sentence of major excommunication. Thomas then appealed, but his appeal was ruled false and frivolous and his excommunication was promulgated in London. Thus everything she did was to dissolve the marriage so that she could fulfil her vow of chastity; the divorce was within ecclesiastical jurisdiction and everything else was accessory. Thomas put his original allegations forward again and asked for a jury. The jury delivered its verdict for Thomas. Lucy immediately declared that the justices and jurors were false, thus in contempt of the crown. Thomas recovered his damages, and Lucy was committed to the Fleet. rcp
