1GG ROti ΕΚ OF WEXDOVER. [Λ . η. 1197. known to bo most celebrated amongst all our dominions, deems it meet carefully to consult our interests according to the necessities of time and other circumstances, so we have thought fit to pay a meet compensation for the advantage and increase of the same church, our mother. Since the town of Andelys and some other adjacent places, which belonged to the church of Rouen, were not sufficiently fortified, and there was a way of ingress opened to our enemies into our country of Normandy, through those same, places, by means of which they sometimes insultingly assailed the same country with fire and rapine, and other cruelties of warfare. Wherefore, the. right worshipful Walter our lather, the archbishop and the chapter of Rouen, having due regard to our losses in the before-named country, an exchange has been made between the church of Rouen and archbishop Walter of the one part, and ourselves of the. other part, concerning the manor of Andelys, as follows : to wit, that the said archbishop, with the consent and by the wish of our lord the pope, Celestine the third, and with the consent of the chapter of the church of Rouen, hath granted, and for over quit-claimed to us and our heirs, the aforesaid manor of Andelys, with the new castle of 'the Rock,' the forest, and all other its appurtenances and liberties, except the churches and the necessaries for soldiers, and except the manor of Freisnas, with its appurtenances, all which the said archbishop retains, the church of Rouen, himself and his heirs, with all their liberties and free customs, and in all their entirety for ever. But in exchange for the aforesaid manor of Andelys with its appurtenances, we have granted, and for ever quitclaimed to the church of Rouen, the aforesaid archbishop and his successors, all the mills which we possessed at Rouen when this exchange was made, together with all appurtenances and grinding instruments, without any reserve of the things which appertain to the mill or to grinding, and with all liberties and free customs which they arc accustomed or ought to have ; and it shall not be lawful fur any one to build a mill at that place, to the detriment of the mills aforesaid. We have, moreover, also granted to them the. towns ol Dieppe and Buceles, with their appurtenances and liberties, also the manor of Coures, and the forest of 1 lalierniunt, with the wild beasts and all other its appurtenances and liberties.
