Edmund de Hauberdyn, formerly parson of White Waltham near Windsor
de Hauberdyn, Edmund
King and council
parson of White Waltham near Windsor
Nature of request:
Edmund de Hauberdyn, formerly parson of White Waltham near Windsor, states that Hugh le Despenser wished him to exchange his parish for that of Beaconsfield, with one Andrew Saddok, Hugh's privy clerk, although Beaconsfield was worth less, and to persuade him to do this he wrote letters saying that he was of the adherence of Roger de Mortimer, the king's enemy, and finally had him seized and imprisoned. He requests a remedy, so that he can have his church of White Waltham back.
Nature of endorsement:
With regard to the imprisonment, he is to sue at common law. With regard to the resignation, it does not fall under the cognisance of the king's court.
White Waltham, [Berkshire]; Windsor, [Berkshire]; Beknesfeld (Beaconsfield), [Buckinghamshire]
Hugh le Despenser, [the elder]; Andrew Saddok, privy clerk of Hugh le Despenser; [Roger de] Mortimer; Hugh le Despenser the son
This petition must date from the time of the fall of the Despensers, and probably from 1327, especially as it does not specifically speak of Edward II as the former king.
