1 Amongst the Magdalen College Muniments (Miscell. 234) is a fragment of a deed dated 1435, which appears to relate to the election of the Prior of Brecon, and to have been an appointment of proctors for the occasion. The name of Stephen Feversham occurs in it, also “ John William Morgan ap David”; but the right hand half of the deed alone remains, the original deed having been cut in half. The back of the right hand half has been used for an indenture containing an inventory of the plate belonging to Battle Abbey.

2 Two or three words are worm-eaten here,—"Ego Thomas unus" ? 3 Two words gone.

“ Meum” is crossed through, and some words have been written above, but they are quite gone.

Letters of Archbishop Peckham to Reginald fitz Peter, complaining of his injuries to the men and animals of the Prior of Brecknock :

“ Domino Reginaldo filio Petri pro Abbate de Bellol Frater Johannes, etc.— Nobili viro domino Reginaldo filio Petri? salutem, etc. Non sine vehementi admiracione et amaritudine cordis intelleximus quia vos libertatibus ecclesiasticis non satis ut honestatem vestram decuit deferentes occasione cujusdam Monachi de Brekynok sue regularis discipline censuram ipsius exigentibus meritis ab eo loco nuper amoti predicti prioratus capi et attachiari fecistis averiam et quasdam personas carcerali custodie mancipari in non modicam libertatis ecclesie lesionem et detrimentum et animarum, cum igitur talem presumpcionis enormitatem negamus convenientibus oculis pertransire, que famam et honestatem vestram deformat plurimum ac in Dei et ecclesie necnon tocius religionis redundat injuriam vos ut filium carissimum rogamus monemus pariter et hortamur quatenus predicta gravamina sine dilacionis tedio revocetis et errata faciatis in melius reformari ne urgente necessitate pro hujus facti remedio aliter manus nostras extendere compellamur.

spreto religionis honore prioratum Breconie gravatis multipliciter ultra modo ejusdem homines destruentes et eorum averia et bona alia per vos et ballivos vestros contra Deum et justiciam occupantes ac alias domum ipsam diversimodo molestantes propter quod regularis disciplina minuitur subtrahuntur inibi opera caritatis et subvertitur religio quasi tota. Et quia non possumus sicut nec debemus tam enormes excessus convenientibus oculis ulterius pertransire, nobilitatem vestram et servum cui mors minatur de die in diem rogamus monemus in Domino pariter et hortamur quatenus ab his molestiis et gravaminibus et injuriis a modo penitus desistatis, ita quod inde clamor non perveniat iteratus, scituri pro certo quod nisi monicionibus nostris parueritis in hac parte, non dissimulabimus amplius quin contra vos et vestros in iis et aliis prout justum fuerit procedamus.
