A.D. 1175. DEPRIVATION OF WILLIAM DE WALTERVILLE. king had sent to Rome. He found our lord, the king, staying at Winchester, on -which, the king went forth to meet him, his son Henry being with him, and they received him with all becoming honor. Our lord, the king, prolonging his stay for some days at Winchester, treated, at very great length, on the restoration of peace between Roger, the archbishop of York, and Richard, the archbishop of Canterbury, the chapel of Saint Oswald at Gloucester, and the carrying of the cross of the archbishop of York. At length, by the management of the king, an arrangement was made between the above-named archbishops to the following effect. The archbishop of Canterbury released and acquitted to the archbishop of York the chapel of Saint Oswald, at Gloucester, from all jurisdiction on his part, as though it were a private chapel belonging to our lord the king. He also absolved the clerks of the archbishop of York, whom he had excommunicated ; and as to the carrying of the cross, and the other disputes which existed between their churches, they agreed to abide by the decision of the archbishop of Rouen and other neighbouring bishops of the kingdom of Prance. And upon this, they were to keep the peace between them for the space of five years ; upon condition that neither of them should seek to do any harm or injury to the other until the said controversy should have been settled, and brought to a due conclusion by the above-named archbishop and the other bishops. Also, the above-named cardinal, Hugezun, gave to our lord, the king, permission to implead the clergy of his kingdom for offences against his forests and taking venison therein. In the same year, Richard, archbishop of Canterbury, deprived William de Walter ville, abbat of Saint Peter de Burgh,68 ^because he had broken into the cloisters of his abbey, and attempted to carry off with a violent and armed band of men the relics of the Saints, together with an arm of Saint Oswald, the long and Martyr; in the defence of which, some of the monks and servants of the church were wounded, and others slain. However, the chief and especial cause of this deprivation was, that our lord the king hated him on account of his brother Walter de WaltervBle, whom, together with other enemies of the Iring, he had harboured during the time of the hostilities. In the same year, died Reginald, earl of 6 3 Peterborough.
