Description

William notifies Geoffrey de Mandeville and the sheriff, and William the chamberlain and all his citizens and officials of London that he has granted to abbot Vitalis and the abbey of Westminster all the lands in London which King Edward gave to the abbey and which William and others had subsequently added. The abbey is to hold freely its market-places, with its stall, shops and rents, and its meat-market, and its rights and tolls which contribute to the lighting of the church, as King Edward commanded. William adds that all native and foreign merchants who lodged in the soke, stalls or wharves of the abbey in King Edward’s time may return there.
