It appears that in the prison of Aldgate there were confined Brother William de Sautre, Knight, Preceptor of Samford; Brother William de la Ford, Preceptor of Daney ; Brother John de Coningeston, Preceptor of Getinges ; lloger de Norreis, Preceptor of Cressing ; Radulph de Barton, priest, Prior of the New Temple; and several serving brethren of the order. In the prison of Crepelgate were detained William de Egendon, Knight, Preceptor of Schepeley ; John de Moun, Knight, Preceptor of Dokesworth; and four serving brethren. In the prison of Ludgate were five serving brethren ; and in Newgate was confined Brother Hiinbert Blanke, Knight, Grand Preceptor of Auvergne. The above declaration of faith and innocence was far from agreeable to the papal inquisitors, who required a confession of guilt, and the torture was once more directed to be applied. The king sent fresh orders to the mayor and the sherilis of the city of London, commanding them to place the Templars in separate dungeons; to load them with chains and fetters; to permit the myrmidons of the inquisitors to pay periodical visits to see that the wishes and intentions of the inquisitors, with regard to the severity of the confinement, were properly carried into effect; and, lastly, to indict TORTURE upon the bodies of the Templars, and generally to do whatever should be thought fitting and expedient in the premises, according to ecclesiastical law.* In coo * Vobia, prafati vicecomites, mandamus quod illos, quos dirti prelati et mqiiisitores, seu aliquis eorum, cum uno saltern inquisitore, depntavcrint ad supervidendum quod dicta custodia bene fiat, id supemdere ; et corpora dictorum Tempiariorum in ODÌBSTI-ONiBus et aliis ad hoc convenientiuus, pouere ; et alia, quas in hac parte secundum legem ecclesiasticam fuerint fàciertda, tacere permittatia.
