The recent petition of all the inhabitants of the town of Cow Honeybourne (villa de Honybornia Wynchecomben.) in the diocese of Worcester contained that up to twenty-six years ago they used to go in numerous procession, one from each of their houses, every year on Whitsun Tuesday, to the Benedictine monastery of Evesham, with cross erect and banners, and make an offering of a farthing for each house; but that, inasmuch as between them and other tenants of the abbot and convent who also repaired thither from neighbouring places in like procession, there frequently arose on the way, for the honour of taking the lead, which on the ground of antiquity belonged to the said inhabitants, grave riots and mutilations or homicides, they, in order to avoid such riots etc. in future, have for the said space of twenty-six years and more ceased to go in procession, continuing, however, to pay the said farthing on the said Tuesday yearly. At the petition of the said inhabitants (who allege that the said town is about three miles distant from the said monastery, and that the said tenants, who are very numerous, trusting in the favour of the said abbot and convent, as their lords, do not fear to erect the horns of elation against the said inhabitants; and supplicating for a remedy in order to protect them in future from such evils and dangers) the pope orders the above abbots, if they find the facts to be as stated, to grant to the said inhabitants that in future and for ever they shall not be bound to go in procession to the said monastery, provided that they pay the said farthing, as above, on every Whitsun Tuesday.
