89. THE CRUTCHED FRIARS OF KILDALE

Sir Arnold de Percy, kt., early in the 14th century granted to the Friars of the Cross a messuage and 10 acres of land in his park in the parish of Kildale without royal licence. Edward II in 1310 pardoned the breach of the Statute of Mortmain. (fn. 14) But in 1312 Archbishop Greenfield denounced the newcomers—persons belonging to an order not approved by the pope, who had entered the diocese and presumed to celebrate divine service without the archbishop's permission—and put the place under an interdict. (fn. 15) The Friars of the Cross probably succumbed to this attack; nothing more is heard of them.
