•would not confirm the presentations which the king had made to them in the church of York. The king, being incensed at this conduct, gave the archdeaconry of Richmond to Roger of Saint Edmund's, his clerk, which the archbishop of York had previously given to Master Honorius, his clerk ; who, although he had received the fealty of the clergy of the said archdeaconry by command of the archbishop, and the archbishop had, by his letters, generally given a command to the like effect to the whole chapter of York, ordering them, in virtue of their obedience, to receive the said Honorius and instai him, had still been rejected, Simon of Apulia opposing him on the ground that the archbishop had not made especial mention of him in his letters as being dean of the said church. And accordingly, the aforesaid dean, a disturber of the peace, and unmindful of the profession which he had made to the said archbishop, received Roger of Saint Edmund's, and installed him, and invested him with the archdeaconry of Richmond, after appeal made by Master Honorius to the Supreme Pontiff. On this, the clerks of the archdeaconry of Richmond, through the violent coercion of Simon of Apulia, and the stern commands of the king, paid fealty to Roger of Saint Edmund's, in contravention of the canonical obedience which they had previously paid to Master Honorius.

Por, as he said : "The wringing of the nose bringeth forth blood."8 2 On the same day, when the said Hugh entered the choir to attend vespers, the dean ordered him to go out, as a person excommunicated ; and, as he refused to depart, the dean ordered the tapers to be put out, and left the choir. In the same year, Geoffrey Eitz-Peter, the justiciary of England, assembling a large army, proceeded to Wales, to succour the people of William de Braose, whom Wenhunwin,88 the brother of Cadwallan, had besieged in Maud's Castle, and on arriving there, he fought a pitched battle with the said Wenhunwin and his people, and, although the Welch in arms were 82 83 Prov.
