APPENDIX II
EARLY VICARAGES IN THE DIOCESE OF LINCOLN

(see pp. 131-3)

THIRTY of the vicarages in the Liber antiquus are described as 'ex dudum ordinata'. Although in a few of these the ordinations may belong to the first years of Hugh de Wells,1 others so described or said to be ab antiquo (p. 27) or antiquitus ordinata (p. 51) may belong to an earlier time. That is very probable in Cassington (P. 3) which Bishop Hugh I had appropriated to Eynsham Abbey c. 1198, providing for a vicarage of five marks to be assigned by the monks;2 it is certain in Maxey (P. 31), as an entry in Rotuli H. de Welles ( i. 90) shows, and in Henlow (p. 22) as witnesses the document printed here below (p. 192). Outside the 'ex dudum' category, the entries for Spalding (p. 65), Chesham, second moiety (p. 18), Marton (p. 68) suggest old arrangements. At Swinstead one of the two ordinations may precede the time of Hugh de Wells (pp. 46, 65). According to a statement made in 1225 the vicarage of St. John the Baptist, Peterborough (p. 31), 'longo tempore talis extitit'.3

The Liber antiquus never mentions an earlier ordination than the one it copies; but there certainly were earlier ordinations in some of these places. At Henlow (below, p. 192) the record shows an ordination undergoing change before the end of the twelfth century. At Pulloxhill (p. 20), according to an entry in the annals of Dunstable, written before 1215, a vicarage was assigned by the authority of Bishop William in 1204.4 The cartulary of Ramsey Abbey furnishes details of an earlier ordination for Hemingford (p. 27), between 1192 and 1200.5 By a distinctly irregular transaction Roger the priest, son of Thurstan the priest of Hemington, became vicar of the church for life when Geoffrey, bishop-elect of Lincoln ( 1173-81), appropriated
