'„.D. 1199. THE XING OF FRANCE MAKES SEVERAL PRISONERS. 461 of the archbishop, he would pay them all to him. As for the archbishop of χοτκ, alter "settling his affairs, as previously stated, he had proceeded eight days' journey on his road homewards, when, hearing of the death of king Richard, he returned to Rome, in order to make such alterations in his affairs as the turn of events should require. John, king of England, after settling his affairs in England, crossed over from England to Normandy, and landed at Dieppe, on the Lord's day, shortly before the feast of the Nativity of Saint John the Baptist ; and on the day of the Nativity of Saint John he was at Rouen, where a multitude of horse, and an army of foot, came flocking in to him from every quarter; immediately after which, a truce was agreed upon between him and the king of France, until the day after the Assumption of Saint Mary. On the very day of the conference, Geoffrey, archbishop of York, having settled his affairs with our lord the pope to his heart's content, returned into Normandy, and was honorably and affectionately received by his brother John. In the meantime, PhUip, earl of Flanders, did homage to John, king of England, at Rouen, on the sixth day of the week before the Assumption of Saint Mary ; and the brother of the said earl of Flanders voluntarily resigned into the hand3 of Geoffrey, the archbishop of York, the prebend of Husthwaite, which he had held in the church of York at the presentation of Richard, king of England. The same was done by many others, who felt that those presentations had been made against God, and to the detriment of the Holy Church. Immediately on this, the said archbishop gave to the before-mentioned brother of the earl of Flanders the prebend which had belonged to Petçr de Dinant, in the church of Saint Peter at York ; for the said Peter had, before this, been elected to the bishopric of Rennes, in Brittany ; the archbishop also ordered the archdeaconry of West Riding, which he had held in the church of York, to be taken possession of in his behalf: but Adam de Tornouere, who at this time held possession of the. said archdeaconry, declined to trust him, relying on the king's patronage and the authority of the chapter of York. In the meantime, Henry, count de Namur, brother of Philip, earl of Flanders, and Peter de Douay, a most valiant knight, and one of the household of the earl of Flanders, and the bishop elect of Cambray, brother of the before-named Peter, were made prisoners by some of the household of the king of France,
