Excerpt: ... belonged to Robert Sorel, who had abjured the kingdom, on account of a felony he had committed.14 Henry III. endowed the friars for their maintenance, especially for the sake of the students, with a yearly pension of 25 marks, paid at Michaelmas and Easter, being half the amount of what he bestowed on the friar-preachers of the sister-university of Oxford. The first notice of this allowance occurs, October 11th, 1289, when 81. 6s. 8d. for the half-year was paid to F. William de Haselford and F. Nicholas de Staunton. At first the pension was strictly a royal alms, but it was transferred by Edward I, July 6th, 1304, to the exchequer. It was renewed, September 27th, 1807, by Edward II.; February 17th, 1326-7, by Edward III.; May 20th, 1380, by Richard II.; November 6th, 1899, by Henry IV.; November 28th, 1418, by Henry V.; December 10th, 1422, on petition to parliament, by Henry VI., in aid of supporting the catholic faith; was delayed by the act of resumption of royal gifts in 1450, till a fresh grant was made, November 11th, 1452, retrospective to November 6th, 1449; under another resumption, till November 8th, 1457; May 14th, 1463, by Edward IV, being especially exempted from the resumptions of 1464, 1467-8, and 1473; December 9th, 1485, under the charge of prayers for the royal family, by Henry VII.; and July 5th, 1509, by Henry VIII.u And so the pension endured to the last. In 1293, the site of the priory was enlarged. By a writ of March 20th, 1292-8, an inquisition was taken, by which it was returned that William de la Haye might assign to them 2. of laud in the suburb of "Pat. 51 Hen. III., m. 81.
