Document 4/50/0 (Records of May, App. no. I)

Brother John de Sutton, monk of Reading, and Mr Hugh de Stanforth, clerk, claiming themselves to be procurators and attorneys of William abbot of Reading, produce a certain deed of procuration. And moreover they produced a certain petition of the priory of May, which very petition is attached to this roll. And afterwards, at the end of parliament, the same procurators and attorneys were asked if they were prepared to pay the lord bishop of St Andrews the 1,100 merks sterling which the same bishop had paid to Robert lately abbot of Reading and his procurators and attorneys. They said that they were not sent to this place for making any payment to the same bishop of any sum of money, nor were they willing to bind themselves to do so, and they asked the lord king that their petition might remain in the same standing as it now is until the next parliament, as in the meantime they may be able to consult the abbot of Reading and the lord king of England, and although they might not be able to come to the next parliament, that they should not be prosecuted because of this until another subsequent parliament.
