[Long before Hugh de Welle made the above will, he had the precaution to procure the king's assent and confirmation to the disposition of his property. The following charter of Henry III. is from the Eegistrum Antiquissimum [f. 42 6.) of the Dean and chapter of Lincoln.']

[On a loose slip of vellum, in Record room of the dean and A like chapter of Lincoln, is a copy of another charter of Henry III., charter, agreeing word for word, in substance, with the above, but 15 "^g^ dated at "Fuleham, quintodecimo die Maii anno regni "nostri tertiodecimo."

The witnesses to this are Richard' bishop of Durham, "Walter bishop of Carlisle the treasurer,3 Hubert de Burgo earl of Kent the justiciar, John de Monmouth, Stephen de Segrave, Ralph de Trublevill, Hugh Dispensator, Henry Fitz-Nicholas, Richard de Gray, and Henry de Oapella.]

1 Ralph Neville, bishop of Chichester, 1224-1244 ; chancellor of Henry DX, 1226-1244.

a Richard le Poore, bishop of Durham, 1229-1237. He had lately been translated from Salisbury.

3 According to Mr. Foss (Judges of England, ii. 405), the bishop of Carlisle was raised to the office of

treasurer in July 1232. But the
only authority he gives for this is
Dugdale's Chron. Ser., and Dugdale
is often wrong. This charter, if
genuine,—and of this there can well
bo no doubt,—proves that he was
treasurer more than three years
before that date.
