In the fourth year of Edward I. 1276, the king's falconers having had an affray with the servants of William de Breton, who had been confirmed as prior October 8th, 1274, and the chaplains with whom they lodged: the king attended in person, to try the matter, and summoned a jury of thirty-six out of two hundred unconnected with the town or convent, to inquire into the affair. Upon the inquisition, it appeared that the affray began by the falconers, who had killed one of the chaplains in a riotIn 1283, we find the men of Dunstaple and the prior involved again in angry disputation, when the former built sheepcots at Limbury, and drove their sheep and cows there, in order to avoid paying the latter his tithe of lamb's milk and wool. ..."

"The House of the Carmelite or White Friars of Lynn was situated in All Saints' parish, or South Lynn. The only remaining portion of it is a Gateway of the thirteenth century, in Friars Street. It is stated by Speed to have been founded by Lord Bardolf, Lord Scales, and Sir John de Wigenhale, Knt, in 1269. Other authorities say that these were only benefactors, and that the founder was Thomas de Folsham or Feltham, who also founded the Grey Friary in 1264. The latter account would appear to be the more correct, as in 1260 William de Breton was a benefactor to the White Friars. ..." |Our William ?]
