Citation, at the request of Galhardus, cardinal of St. Lucy's in Silice, of John de Breydon, to appear before Master Peter Fabri, papal auditor, touching the prebend and treasurership of Salisbury, possession of which was refused to Master Bernard Viventis, canon of Bazas, subexecutor, and John Bonaure, canon of Chichester, proctor of the said cardinal, by Thomas Hotofth, parson of Pontragach, in the diocese of Salisbury, William Thurston, Matthew le Skynnere, Richard le Skynnere, William Digher, Thomas Bretford, John Stone, and William Dunbrendale, citizens of Salisbury. They, with armed accomplices, attacked the said subexecutor and proctor, saying that because they had come to hinder John de Breydon, possessor of the said prebend and treasurership, they should lose their heads, and would have killed them, had not one of the canons and one of the vicars restrained them. Papal mandate having been issued to the archbishop of Canterbury to cite the said parson and John de Breydon, the parson was apprehended by the archbishop's commissary, but Breydon could not then be cited, nor afterwards made to appear before the papal auditor appointed to hear the cause. The present citation is therefore issued and ordered to be published on the church doors at Avignon.
