A.D. 1242. Sheriffs.: Robert Fitz-John, again,; Ralph Eswy, Goldsmith,

In this year, Ralph Eswy was again made Mayor, and because his lordship the King was not in England, was presented to the Chief Justiciar of his lordship the King, that is to say, to the Archbishop of Canterbury, at (fn. 1) Keningtone, and there sworn and admitted. And in the same year, about the Feast of Saint Michael, the King returned from Gascoigne.
