A.D. 1177. GENERAI, COUNCIL HELD AT NORTHAMPTON. 437 to be heretics, and do approve of the judgment pronounced upon them." In the year of grace 1177, being the twenty-third year of the reign of king Henry, son of the empress Matilda, the said Henry, and Geoffrey, earl of Brittany, and John, his sons, were at Northampton, in England, during the festival of the Nativity of our Lord. On the same day, king Henry, the son, and his wife were at Argenton in Normandy, and Bichard, the son of king Henry, earl of Poitou, was in Aquitaine, at the city of Bourdeaux. Immediately after, the Nativity of our Lord, he laid siege to the city of Aques, which Peter, viscount of Aques, and the count of Bigorre had fortified against him, and within ten: days he took it.

In. the same manner did the canons secular of Waltham as to their prebends, resigning them into the hands of the archbishop ; but our lord the king gave them full compensation for the same, according to the estimate of the lord archbishop of Canterbury. After this, our lord the king, by the authority of our lord the pope, placed in the same church of Waltham canons regular taken from various houses
