A.D. 1195. HUGH, BISHOP OP COVENTRY, IS PARDONED. 355 such manner as shall be just. And if you shall not be able all of you to take part in the performance hereof, then two of you are to carry out the same. Given at Saint Peter's, at Rome, on the second day before the calends of June, in the fourth year of our pontificate." Accordingly, on the authority of these letters, the said dean of Lincoln and his colleagues appointed for the parties a time and place, first at Torkesey, and next at Avechester, where, in their presence, they proved the losses of the priors and canons of the church of York, which they had sustained by the archbishop of York and his intruders, to be of the value of one thousand marks of silver. In the same year, Richard, king of England, forgave his brother, John, all the wrath and displeasure he felt towards him, and restored to him the earldom of Mortaigne, the honor of Eye, and the earldom of Gloucester, and all the - appurtenances thereto belonging, with the exception of the castles : and, instead of all his other earldoms and lands, the king gave him eight thousand pounds of money Anjouin per annum. In the same year, the Supper of our Lord approaching, on John, bishop of Whitherne, the suffragan and deputy of Geoffrey, archbishop of York, coming near to York, that he might there, according to usual custom, consecrate the chrism and the oil at the Supper of our Lord, the dean and clergy of the church of York refused to receive him. Consequently, he went to Sewell, and there consecrated the chrism and oil at the Supper of our Lord, and delivered them to the officials of the archbishop to distribute to the churches in the archbishopric. It is even said that Geoffrey de Muschamp, archdeacon of Cleveland, received the chrism and oil, and immediately threw them upon a dunghill. However, the other canons of the church of Saint Peter declined to receive any part thereof, but sent to Hugh, bishop of Lincoln, to obtain the oil and chrism of him ; they were deceived, however, in their expectations : for Peter, archdeacon of Lincoln, brother of archbishop Geoffrey, forbade the bishop to give them the oil and chrism, and appealed on the matter to the Roman Pontiff. In the same year, the king forgave his wrath and displeasure against Hugh, bishop of Coventry, and restored to him the bishopric, for five thousand marks of silver, which he paid to him ; but Robert, the brother of the said bishop, died in the custody of our lord the king, at Dover.
