Arrangement

The numbering system reflects the medieval organisation of the documents in boxes with four compartments: the first number is the compartment, the second the box, and the final one the number in the sequence (thus 1.2.Sacr.5 is the fifth document in the first compartment of the second box). The documents were listed in the separate Sacrist's repertory.

1.1.Sacr.10a   [c.1390]
Memorandum that Prior John Fossor, partly in recompense for a rent for providing for lights on the altar, partly because of the devotion that he and the convent have for the BVM and partly in exoneration of the bursar who rightly ought to provide the necessaries for the altar so that the chantry of Dom Thomas Herrington can be celebrated at the altar, assigned an annual rent of 13s 4d from the granges of Kepier hospital, and since subsequently there was an exchange of the rent for various tithes in the parish of Pittington anciently pertaining to Kepier hospital, which tithes after the exchange the bursar received and assigned as a pension to provide for the 13s 4d to the sacrist to provide the lights, and so it was paid for 14 years, subtracted from a 60s pension to the sacrist from the bursar, but then it ceased, whose restitution the sacrist now seeks. John Halghton had formerly been the provider of the lights, and after him Dom Thomas Launcells, so that the burden has not previously fallen on the sacrist before the time of John Abell, upon whom it has now been imposed by Prior Robert Walworth.
