Receipts issued by the bishops of Lincoln and London for £365. 15s. 3d. received from the Dean and Chapter of Hereford, being their contribution for the second year of the papal taxation for the needs of the Holy Land.
Note:
Tithes, ostensibly for papal purposes but often augmenting the royal revenue, were imposed on the clergy at various times. Clement V specifically defined the tax (imposed 1305) as being for a crusade. The official collectors were John Dalderby (bishop of Lincoln, 1300-1320) and Ralph Baldock (bishop of London, 1304-1313).
