302 ANNALS OP ROGER DE HOVEDEN. A.D. 1193. In the same year, Richard, king of England, while he was still in the custody of the Roman emperor, gave to Hubert Fitz-Walter, archbishop of Salisbury, the archbishopric of Canterbury, to Savaric, archdeacon of Northampton, the bishopric of Bath, and to Henry Marshal, dean of York, the bishopric of Exeter ; also, to Master Philip of Poitiers, his clerk, the king gave the archdeaconry of Canterbury, to Henry, abbat of Glastonbury, he gave the bishopric of Worcester, and to the said Savaric, bishop of Bath, he gave the abbey of Glastonbury. Accordingly, on Henry Marshal, the dean of York, being elected to, the bishopric of Exeter, Geoffrey, archbishop of York, who was at this time staying at Ripon, gave to his brother Peter the deanery of York, in presence of Hamo, the praecentor, Simon of Apulia, and a considerable number of his other clerks. But because the said Peter was at this time at Paris, and Richard, king of England, most urgently demanded that the archbishop would give the deanery to John, prior of Douay, brother of the Advocate of Bethune, the said archbishop, by the advice of his people, gave the deanery to Simon of Apulia, his clerk, and by this method evaded the king's request. But, some time after, the archbishop wanted to undo what he had done ; and told the said Simon that he had only given the deanery into his charge to be kept in behalf of his brother Peter ; on which the canons of the church of York, with one consent, elected the said Simon as their dean, though contrary to the wishes of the archbishop. In consequence of this, the said archbishop, in order that he might please the king, gave to the aforesaid master Philip,1 clerk to the king, and one of his household, the said deanery ; on which a dissension broke out between the archbishop of York and his canons ; of which the following was the cause and origin. At the time when Richard, king of England, on his return, from the land of Jerusalem, had been made prisoner and detained in Germany, and an agreement had been entered into, between him and the emperor, as to obtaining his release by ransom, the king had, by his letters, especially entrusted to the archbishop of York the charge of his territories and the liberation of his person. On receiving this command, being, moved with sorrow for his brother's captivity, he called upon those canons with whom he was most familiarly acquainted, Philip of Poitiers, archdeacon of Canterbury, before mentioned.
