518 ANNALS OP P.OGEE DE HOVEDEN. A.D . 1201. beginning of the fast, Roderic and Machdunlef were slain in Ulster, in a barn belonging to the White Monks, by the servants of John de Courcy, the said John not knowing thereof, as it is said ; and, after he heard of it, he was very sorry, and, for this crime, sent the murderers into banishment. At Mid-Lent, John, king of England, and queen Isabel, his wife, were at York, and Geoffrey, archbishop of York, made his peace with the king on payment of a pecuniary fine, upon the understanding that, by the decision of four bishops and four barons, elected on behalf of the king and on behalf of the archbishop, amends should be made for the faults committed by either side. Here also, William de Stuteville and James de Poterne, whom the archbishop had excommunicated, received absolution from him. In the meantime, Reginald Arundel, prsecentor of the church of York, departed this life ; on hearing of which, Geoffrey, archbishop of York, wished to give the preecentorship to one of his own people, but the dean and chapter would not allow thereof, but, against the will of the archbishop, gave to Hugh Murdac the archdeaconry of Cleveland, which the said bishop had the day before given to Master Ralph de Kime, his own officer ; and, when the archbishop wanted to instai him in place of the praecentor, the dean said to him, " You have no right to instai any one, and you shall not instai him ; for, by the authority of the council of Latcran, we have given away this archdeaconry." As the archbishop could not succeed according to his wishes, he proceeded to excommunicate Hugh Murdac. In the meantime, Honorius, archdeacon of Richmond, proceeded to Rome, on account of the injuries which Geoffrey, archbishop of York, had done him ; he having, contrary to the ancient dignities of the archdeaconry of Richmond and the customs thereof, laid claim to the right of institution to churches and the synodals. Por the archbishop alleged that the said Honorius had resigned all these things to him, and, by his charter, confirmed the same. This Honorius in every way contradicted, and made complaint to pope Innocent of the injuries which the archbishop of York had done him, and,obtained from him a letter to the following effect :— The Letter of pope Innocent to Geoffrey, archbishop of York. " Innocent, the bishop, servant of the servants of God, to the archbishop of York, health and the Apostolic benediction.
