Details of SC 8/185/9244
Reference: SC 8/185/9244
Description:
Petitioners: Robert de Faryngton (Farrington), clerk of chancery.
Name(s): de Faryngton (Farrington), Robert
Addressees: King.
Occupation: clerk of chancery
Nature of request: Robert de Faryngton requests letters to his brother, Nicholas, granting him exemption from holding any office against his will.
Nature of endorsement: [on face] Granted by the king himself.
People mentioned: Nicholas de Faryngton (Farrington), brother of the petitioner.
Note: Robert de Faryngton was active for much of the latter half of Richard II's reign, and beyond. However, he presented two other petitions in 1398 (SC 8/253/12628, 12630), and the handwriting of these appears very similar in style. Each also has a similar filing hole in the left half, suggesting they may once have been filed together.
Date: [c. 1398]
