Transaction: Request to King Alexander III to retract his policies regarding May Priory and require its property for Reading Abbey

Type of Transaction
From Source
2/0/0 (Duncan, May Docs., no. 56)
Firm date
X April 1286
Dating Notes
x April 1286, when the news of the death of Alexander III must have reached England. This may be dated to the unwillingness of that king to admit prior William, 1269 x 73, and his subsequent attempt to buy the priory with the aid of bishop William Wishart, 1273 x 9, or to an early stage of the negotiations which were completed March-May 1288. But there may have been other occasions on which the king interfered with this '' alien'' priory.
