132 AMfALS OF ROGER SE HOTEDEN. A.D. 1189. firmed. We have also restored to him all allegiances of his subjects and all charters which the king our father obtained of him by reason of his capture. And if any other charters shall chance, through fbrgetfulness, to have been retained by us or shall hereafter be found, we do hereby order that the same shall be utterly void and of no effect. He has also become our liegeman as to all the lands for which his predecessors were liegemen to our predecessors, and has sworn fealty to ourselves and to our heirs. The following being witnesses hereto:—Baldwin, archbishop of Canterbury, Walter, archbishop of Bouen, Hugh, bishop of Durham, John, bishop of Norwich, Hubert, bishop of Salisbury, Hugh, bishop of Lincoln, Godfrey, bishop of Winchester, Gilbert, bishop of Bochester, Beginald, bishop of Bath, Hugh, bishop of Coventry, William, bishop of Worcester, Eleanor, the king's mother, John,earl of Mortaigne, the king's brother, and many others." On the same day, there came thither, namely, to Canterbury, Hugh, bishop of Durham, and Hubert, bishop of Salisbury, to appeal to the presence of our lord the pope, against Geoffrey, the archbishop elect of York, before the said cardinal and the above-named archbishops and bishops, wishing to prove that his election ought not to hold good, because they themselves to whom the first votes in the election belonged were not present at his said election. Bucard also, the treasurer of the church of York, and Henry, the dean of the said church, appealed against the said archbishop elect of York to the presence of our lord the pope, affirming that he was not canonically elected, and was a murderer, born in adultery, and the son of a harlot. But although all these allegations were made against him, the before-named cardinal John of Anagni, the legate of the Apostolic See, confirmed his election. After this, Bichard, king of England, gave to his brother John, earl of Mortaigne, by way of augmentation, the earldoms of CornwaU, Devon.3 9 Dorset, and Somerset. The king of England also gave to his mother, queen Eleanor, the whole of the dower which queen Matilda, the wife of king Henry the Elder,40 had enjoyed, the whole of the dower which Alice, the wife of king Stephen, enjoyed, and the whole of the dower which Henry, king of England, son of the empress Matilda, had given to her. 1 9 These have been previously mentioned as given to him, except that of the county of Devon. See p. 115 of this Volume. * Henry the First.
