INTRODUCTION.

The register of Bishop Lewis Chariton is bound in one volume with those of Bishops Gilbert and Marshall, and preceded by two folios of a manuscript of the canon law. An interesting note by Bishop Booth in the middle of the book [1] throws light on the preservation of these as well as the earlier documents of the See; he states with justifiable pride that he found the records of the bishops of Hereford from Breton to Marshall in loose sheets, reduced them to order, and added neat bindings for their preservation. The curious misplacement of many of the pages thus finds an explanation, and it is also evident that Bishop Breton's., register is the only one that has been lost to us since the Middle Ages. It may be surmised that Bishop Booth, in building the muniment room over the porch of the Cathedral still bearing his name, had an eye to the safe custody of the archives he had rescued.

The exhaustion and torpor which crept over England during the concluding years of the reign of Edward III very clearly mark the history of the eight years of Bishop Charlton's rule. The ordinary duties of a diocesan, duly and regularly performed, are alone recorded; the domestic affairs of the diocese include little of interest, and the enjoined obsequies of the Duke of Clarence [2] and a letter from William of Wykeham are the only links with contemporary history. The latter had been presented in 1361 by the king to a pension extorted from the bishop "nove creacionis racione," one of several expedients adopted for paying the king's clerks without prejudice to the royal purse, and within two years resigned it in favour of John Tiverton, who at once accepted a capital sum in lieu of the annuity and the prospect of a benefice in the future.

ii Introduction.

The plague, which was simmering in England throughout this century, broke out with violence in Herefordshire in 1361, and is the reason assigned for uniting the depopulated parishes of Whyle and Puddlestone. [1] To avoid infection the market at Hereford was held at a point some two miles from the city, and here the bishop erected a cross to commemorate the visitation. Both the cross and his monument in the Cathedral bore the lion rampant of the Charltons, lords of Powys, and it may reasonably be concluded that the bishop was a member of this important house, which enjoyed great church influence in the diocese. He further held a portion in Pontesbury church in the patronage of the head of the family, in which he was succeeded by one Griffin Charlton, who in his last will, proved 1385, made John Charleton, lord of Powys, his executor; they were evidently all of the same kindred, though their names are spelt indifferently Charletone, Cherletone, and Chorletone, The future bishop was ordained a priest at Goldhull on January 2nd, 1347, by John Trillek, being already a canon of the Cathedral. In 1358 he exchanged his portion in Pontesbury for that of Netherhall in Ledbury church, and ultimately became chancellor of the University of Oxford. Like his predecessor Cantilupe, he probably owed this latter appointment to the fact that he belonged to a great baronial family; the duties of the office involved the regulation and control of a most turbulent body of students, and required a prestige in the holder which personal character and talents alone could not confer. A provision of the Pope [2] in 1361 removed him to his native See of Hereford, the confines of which he seems rarely to have left, performing all episcopal duties regularly till April, 1369. On Mar 29th of that year he died, and was buried in the Cathedral. Charlton never held any of the great offices of State and took no part in the politics or Court life of the time; he occasionally assisted in the adjoining diocese of Worcester, blessing the abbot of Hales 5th April, 1365, and burying William Boys, abbot of Evesham, in the nave of his church 30th June, 1367. Bishop Trillek's executors payed him the large sum of 345 for dilapidations. [3]

Introduction. iii

The ordination lists of these eight years are almost complete, and disclose some unexpected facts. Of the Christian names that are given, John is by far the favourite; no less than 536 persons of that name are ordained, while the Williams, the next in numbers, are only 221, the Thomas's 194, the Richards 164, the Rogers 83, the Walters 81, and the Henrys 50. Twenty-five other names occur, some only once or twice, one, Wasmer, having no modern equivalent. The majority of the surnames are derived from townships and places of habitation, and throw little light on the social position of the ordained. There are a few representatives of the great landowning families of the diocese, Whitneys, Cornwalls, Mortimers, Picards, Cantilupes, Frenes, Garnons, de la Mares, and Gunters, in many cases holding family benefices. Those who had just sufficient property for a title are much more numerous, and in general seemed to have belonged to the ranks of smaller freeholders. The growth of a mercantile class in the towns as distinguished from the necessary village tradesmen can also be traced; the names recur of Burgess, Goldsmith, Spicer, Chapman, Chandler and Monger. The patronage of the religious houses and the free education they provided for promising youths, the sons of their tenants and servants, introduced an element from the villein population. The men ordained on their title or presented to their benefices often bear the names of places on or adjoining their estates, and it was only by their assistance that the Taylors, Tylers, Bakers, Masons, and other villagers could have received the necessary training and support.

The diocese of Hereford, if the names of the clergy are any guide, was at this time inhabited by a distinctly English people; few, if any, of the recipients of holy orders, if we exclude the Welsh deanery of Archenfield and the border districts of Shropshire and Radnor, bore Welsh patronymics; a few, mostly foreign monks, are French, but the great majority are English. With the exception of the doubtful David, no distinctively Welsh Christian names are found in the English districts, though they must have been thoroughly familiar and in general use within a few miles. A racial

iv Introduction.

line was drawn, and the Welshman was evidently more or less of a suspect outside his own borders.

Nicknames are certainly not so common as in purely Saxon counties; we find Pope, King, Nitingale, Lamprey, Book, and Coote, and a precentor of Hereford is appropriately called William Ditty, but the uncouth village humour, often very coarse, which characterizes any list of Wessex names is absent. The case of illegitimate persons must, however, be excepted; their appellations are blunt and uncompromising; dispensations for this defect are granted John Hore and Robert Hore, apparently unrelated, to Richard Maggeson and John Cachepol.

A.D. 1363. Trinity.- Extracts from the plea rolls of the Court of Exchequer. The executors of bishop Trillek appear and disclaim liability for arrears of the tenth, as they have the receipt of the prior of St. Guthlac's, the collector, for the amount due from the bishop at the last term of payment before his death, and the Crown received the revenues of the See from the death to the time of the next payment. The barons reserve the latter point for consideration.
