William Cade II

1913 English Historical Review  
II. I AM very glad that Dr. Round has dealt with a side of this important document which, exoept in so far as it showed the wideness of Cade's net, I was obliged to neglect i it need hardly be said that handled by him this point of view becomes extremely important and interesting. 1 With reference to the administrative side, which principally interested me, I would venture, though diffidently, to comment on Dr. Round's criticiim. This occurs on pp. 524-6 of his notes and embraces really two
more » ... ers of interest : first, my suggestion that the phrases <U dctnio HUgis and pro rtaptdu dt ddnio Rqji* attached to the statement of a debt owed by Maurice FitrGeoffrey confirm the possibility of a debt originally due to the king being transferred to Cade : and secondly, the statement of the Pipe Roll of 1160 with regard to the money owed by William de Caisneto that fuit xndt attornahts Isaac Iudto per Rottdum Camert et per Rotodum Archidiaconi, with a further entry in which William is again attornatus Isaac ludeo in respect of another debt; the mining of theee passages being of course that William, in respect of his own debt, was to pay a debt of the king to Isaac the Jew. With regard to the first point, Dr. Round observes, ' Maurice went out of office in 1163 with an adverse balance of £280 6*. Id. " blanch ". This is charged against him till 1166, when to the entry is added " sed attornatus est inde ad faciendum abbatiam unam ". This is repeated till in the roll of 1176 he accounts for his debt at last' (by paying a certain sum into the treasury and having a pardon for the rest). Dr. Round then suggests that as the two sheriffs, Maurice and William, each ' remained liable for the full amount of his debt-though each debt was ear-marked, in the modern language of finance, for a special purpote-he had not borrowed money from any one towards paying it off'.
