- 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).
