A.D. 1211-1213.

THE following list does not belong to any of the general series of returns transcribed in the Book of Fees. Nor is there any direct evidence as to whether it represents a return sent up from the country or a compilation made at the Exchequer.

The Archdeacon of Stafford, who is mentioned in the first entry as having the wardship of the heir of Oliver fitz Neal, obtained it in the financial year ending at Michaelmas 1207. [1] Brian de Lisle, who is mentioned in the second entry as responsible for the barony of Ralph Taisson, was entrusted with it in February 1208. [2] On the other hand, the statement that John of Bassingbourne was responsible for the Honour of Tickhill, cannot be later than the spring of 1214, when Ralph, Count of Eu, obtained restitution of his lands. [3] Michael de "Maunuers", who is entered as holding two fees at Holme, was presumably the predecessor of Leon de Malnoers who became accountable for a relief of 10l. before October 1213. [4] William de Harcourt, who is mentioned in the last entry in connexion with the fee of the Constable of Chester, occurs elsewhere as one of the administrators of the estate of Roger de Lacy, Constable of Chester, who died in the autumn of 1211. [5] Inasmuch then as John de Lacy, son and heir of Roger, obtained possession of most of his inheritance two years later, the list may apparently be ascribed to the period between October 1211 and September 1213. [6]

The entry concerning Clayworth affords some further evidence of date. According to the Pipe Rolls, land there to the yearly value of 112s. was for a considerable period in the possession of William fitz Robert fitz Hugh. For some two years from Michaelmas 1211, it was in the hand of the king. Hugh fitz Robert was returned as the late owner in the summer of 1212, and Marina his relict obtained a tardy assignment of dower there in August 1213, [7] but the Pipe Roll of 1212 ignores his brief tenancy. Before Michaelmas in that year, Wiiliam of Hartshill undertook to pay the 100 marks mentioned in the text printed below. [8] At the time of the compilation of the list, he had not found the necessary sureties, and in point of fact he did not get the land falling to him by inheritance until 1221, when two great men became sureties for his payment of a fifth of the sum originally demanded by the Crown.

A.D. 1214-1215.

IN the section of the Book of Fees devoted to the counties of Essex and Hertford there is a transcript of a list of fees of Richard de Raimes and of William de Hehon in Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk. The first eleven entries concern the Raimes estate; the other nine concern the Helion estate.

The date of the list is approximately fixed by the mention in it of Robert de Vere as tenant of half a fee at Hedingham and a fee at Tilbury (by Clare), The latter belonged at one time to Aubrey de Vere, Earl of Oxford, who was certainly living in the earlier part of the financial year beginning at Michaelmas 1213. [1] In October 1214, Robert de Vere undertook to pay 1,000 marks for having all the lands of his brother, Earl Aubrey, who had been dead some weeks. [2] The list seems therefore to have been made between the death of Earl Aubrey and the formal investiture of Robert de Vere as an earl. His title as Earl of Oxford was fully recognised at the time of the issue of the Great Charter in June 1215. [3]

Further evidence is to be found in the Pipe Roll of 1214, which contains a section headed:- "Feoda militum Willelmi de Helion que sunt in manu regis pro defectu ipsius Willelmi". [4] The names there given correspond with those in the list printed below, except that Earl Aubrey appears as the owner of Tilbury, and the heirs of William of Felstead occupy the place of Philip of Burnham. The holdings in Norfolk and Suffolk are not given. This section of the Pipe Roll is immediately followed by a heading:- "Scutagia Ricardi de Reimes", with no particulars, a space being left blank. [5]

Two versions of a list of the fees of Helion, which was possibly the foundation of the list transcribed in the Book of Fees, are to be found in the Red Book of the Exchequer. The first of these is appended, out of place, to the copy of the carta of Robert de Helion of the year 1166; the second is included among the inquisitions there assigned to the 13th year of the reign of John. [6] The Red Book contains also an altogether independent list of fees of the Honour of Helion in the counties of Essex and Hertford, which may have been derived from the sheriff's return to the royal writ of 1 June 1212.

THE Book of Fees contains transcripts of two early lists of tenants of the Honour of Boulogne, which it will be convenient to designate as A and C. The Red Book of the Exchequer contains another, which may be designated as B, and the Little Black Book of the Exchequer contains a fourth, which may be designated as D.

The Patent Roll of the 2nd year of Henry III contains a list of reliefs due from various tenants of the Honour in December 1217, and also a list of tenants of the Honour in the counties of Cambridge and Huntingdon who had not paid their scutage. Lastly, the Pipe Rolls contain accounts of the scutages levied on the tenants in 1217-1218 and 1221-1222. These are given in the Appendix.


The nucleus of this list seems to have been drawn up as early as the reign of Henry II, and to have been corrected, somewhat casually, in the first decade of the thirteenth century. Gervase of Comhill, whose name stands unaltered in one entry, was dead at Michaelmas 1185. [1] The "Comes Willelmus" whose name also stands unaltered, was presumably William de Mandeville, Earl of Essex, who died in 1189. [2] The list contains two mentions of Faramus de Boulogne, who died in 1183 or 1184. [3] In one case, an addition to the original gives his grandson, William de Fednes, as the actual tenant; in the other case, the heirs of Faramus de Boulogne are described as the tenants. So again, in an entry concerning Richard de Lucy, who was dead in 1182, there is an addition to the effect that his land had passed to "the heir of Ongar". [4] While Robert fitz Roger now figures in the list as the actual tenant of seven fees, the original version seems to have credited them to his father-in-law, William of Norwich, known also as William de Chesnay, who died in 1174. [5]

On the other hand, Oger de Curton, who is mentioned in the list as holding Tendring. did not obtain livery of that place until 1205. [6] The entry concerning (Great) Birch and Easthorpe can hardly be earlier than 1203, when Wiiliam Blund obtained a lease of them, or later than 1206, when he seems to have conveyed to Ralph Gernon. [7] Hubert of Anstey, who was dead at Easter 1210, occurs six times in the list as the tenant of various lands. [8] It

is doubtful whether any corrections or additions were made after that date. William de Fednes, indeed, is entered as the tenant of six fees to which he did not succeed until after the death of his mother Sibyl, the daughter and heiress of Faramus de Boulogne, many years later, but she had surrendered a considerable part of the inheritance to him in 1206, and it is possible that the annotator of the list was ignorant of the details of the family arrangement then made. [1] Or again, it is possible that he merely blundered in transcription, misreading the letters "Sib" as a "W", and so converting "Sibill" into "Will".

The foregoing notes show the impossibility of assigning this document to any definite date.


This list is identical with A, except with regard to a few details. The text is less corrupt. Being entered in the Red Book among inquisitions "made in the 13th year of King John", it is, in the printed edition, assigned to 1211- 1212. [2] There is, however, nothing to show that it was the result of an inquisition, and an East Anglian jury of that date could not have returned Gervase of Cornhill, Earl William, or Hubert of Anstey as actual tenants. As explained in a previous section, the rubricated headings in the Red Book are not to be trusted. This List is not reproduced in the present volume.


The sequence of some of the names and certain phrases in this list suggest that the compiler of it had before him the material which had been used in the preparation of lists A and B. The mention in it of Richard de Rivers with Maud de Lucy shows that it cannot be earlier than January 1214, when they obtained permission to marry. [3] On the other hand, the mention of Roger Bigod, Earl of Norfolk, shows that it is not later than his death in 1221, while the mention of Warin fitz Gerold shows that it is not later than 1218. [4] Lastly, the entry concerning Tendring can hardly be earlier than 1217, when Thomas de Longueville acquired a fee there from Oger de Curton. [5]

The date of the list seems therefore to be 1217-1218. It may have been made by the steward of the Honour. While it appears to be free from the anachronisms of A and B, the later part of it, dealing with the demesnes of the Honour, is, in its present form, so imperfect as to be almost unintelligible without the assistance of the other versions.


While the sequence of fees in this list corresponds generally with that in C, the names of the tenants agree more closely with those in A and B. Thus it mentions among the tenants Hubert of Anstey, who, as has been seen, was dead at Easter 1210. Apart from the value of this version for purposes of collation with the others, it has some marginal and interlinear additions and corrections of obviously later date. The note concerning Ralph fitz Nicholas cannot be earlier than 1227, when be obtained a grant of lands of Hugh de Cantelo, who had been hanged for felony.6 Nevertheless, the names of several

tenants who had died long before that date were allowed to remain uncorrected.

Although this list was printed by Hearne, in his edition of the Liber Niger Scaccarii, he did not clearly discriminate between the original text and the additions. It is therefore reprinted in the Appendix to this volume.
