147 Lector at Oxford. Occurs as minister 27th October, 1304 (Cal. Pat. Rolls, Edw. I., v., 174), and in March, 1309 (Chancery Warrants, 1765/15); resigned before 1310; died 1333. (Little, u.s., 160; B.S.F.S., v., 144, 151.)
148 At Oxford in 1300; afterwards lector there and Master of the Franciscans at Cambridge. Occurs as minister 1310 to 1313; died in 1330. (Little, u.s., 164; Dict. Nat. Biog., xii., 63.)

150 Date uncertain; 36th lector at Cambridge. (De Adventu, 73; Little, u.s., 165–166.)

The chief opponent of Richard FitzRalph, archbishop of Armagh. Said to have died in 1360, but may have lived several years longer. (Little, u.s., 239–241; Dict. Nat. Biog., xii., 58.) See p. 77 above.

162 Or Zouch. Occurs as minister in 1402; deposed in 1405, but reinstated in 1406; he occurs as minister on 18th September, 1406 (C.P.R., Henry IV., iii., 238); again deposed in 1407 or 1408; bishop of Llandaff, 1408–1423.

167 The scribe first wrote "confirmatus ante recepcionem obiit".
168 Occurs as minister, 2nd March, 1425.
169 Or Daw. Elected in 1427 or 1428; deposed by the General in 1430. Hugh David and John Winchelsey were vicars of the Minister General on 5th August, 1431. (Cal. Pat. Rolls, Henry VI., ii., 132.)
170 His dates are uncertain; perhaps 1431–1437.
171 Occurs as Minister in a list of rectors of provinces in 1438. (Wadding, Annales, xi., 49.) Thomas was provincial minister in 1449. (P.R.O., Conventual Leases, Yorkshire, 900.) Thomas Radnor was apparently not Minister in November, 1457—see next note. But he reappears in March, 1458 (see p. 211 below), and again on 29th November, 1465. (Barrett, History of Bristol, p. 571; for another reference in 1465 to Friar Thomas, Minister, see Archaeologia Aeliana, new ser., iii., 146.) Apparently he held office twice, first about 1438–1450, and secondly about 1458–1465.
172 Bishop Pecock wrote a letter addressed Doctori ordinis fratrum minorum Godard describing modern preachers as "clamatores in pulpitis". Afterwards in November, 1457, it was "Doctor William Goddard, the elder, that was provincialle of the Grayfreeres" (Greyfriars Chronicle ap. Mon. Franc., ii., 175) who appeached the bishop for heresy. It would therefore seem that Goddard was Minister between Radnor's two terms, i.e. circa 1450 to 1458. On 6th November, 1465, William Gregory bequeathed him 20s. calling him simply "maister Godard thelder a nother frere minour". (Collections of a London Citizen, p. xiii.) In 1470 Friar William was again Provincial Minister (Additional Charter, 37678); this may be Goddard. On 30th September, 1470, Goddard was put up at St. Paul's to preach that Henry VI. was the new king; this suggests that he was in politics a supporter of Warwick. On 6th March, 1472, in the will of Sir John Crosby there is a bequest to "Maister Godard thelder". In 1477 the Duke of Clarence brought "famosum Doctorem ordinis Minorum M. Willielmum Goddard" to recite his confession of innocence before the Council. (Croyland Chronicle, 561.) There is no proof that Goddard was Provincial Minister on either of these last two dates. However in a record dated 4th October, 1485, William Goddard appears as Provincial. This can hardly refer to William Goddard the younger (see p. 60 above), who is said to have died on 26th September, 1485; moreover, as Mr. Little points out, there is no evidence that the younger Goddard was ever Provincial, and he was not buried in the Choir, as all the Ministers mentioned in the Register were. Probably the elder Goddard held office twice or, if the references for 1470 and 1485 both refer to him, possibly three times. If 1470 and 1485 both fell in the same term, Radnor and Goddard must have held office in turn for all or nearly all the fifty years between 1438 and 1487. In the manuscript "1437" was added in a later hand after "disertissimus," but subsequently erased; perhaps the true date was 1487. The words "jacet Londonie" are also an addition, probably based on the entry on p. 72 above.
173 He was Provincial in February, 1498; see p. 211 below. According to Wood (Fasti, 6) he became D.D. about 1500. On p. 73 above he is said to have died on 16th December, 1505. Possibly a name is missing between Goddard and Perseval, and one at least is certainly missing between Perseval and Standish.
174 A later hand added "1505" which has been erased.
175 Provincial 1515–1518; see p. 60 above.
176 Occurs as Provincial on 26th June, 1524. (Eng. Hist. Rev., vi., 751.) He was apparently dead before this record was written, circa 1526, and it is strange that his successor is not given. Dr. William Call or Cale was Provincial between 1531 and November, 1538; he was subservient to Thomas Cromwell (id. ib.; Letters and Papers Henry VIII., ix., 301, xiii. (i.), 651, (ii.), 1211). The Franciscan William Peto was Provincial in 1532; but he seems to have belonged to the Observant branch of the Order.
177 Jean de Brienne (d. 1237) became a friar at the end of his life. (Analecta Franciscana, iii., 681; Gulubovich, i., 138.)

180 Henry II. (1306–1352). (Anal. Franc., iii., 484.)
181 Nothing seems to be known of this writer; but the material here quoted from his Chronicle appears to be derived from the Liber Conformitatum of Bartholomew of Pisa.
182 A repetition of John de Brienne.
183 These names seem also to be duplicates; the "rex Saxonie" may be only Adolphus. "dux Alsatie"; see p. 197.

198 Robert, 1st baron Fitz Walter (d. 1325), was a benefactor of the Greyfriars of Colchester in 1293 and 1309 (Victoria County History, ii., 180); but the house was at least as old as 1237. (Close 21, Hen. III., m. 4.)
