The August Fine of the Month

Since finishing the August Fine of the Month, David Carpenter writes that he has now found on the fine rolls two more instances of Robert Grosseteste being amerced £100 for failing to produce clerks before the king’s justices. Both sums were pardoned. See CFR 1247-8, no.584; CFR 1248-9, no.522.  In due course a revived version of the paper will be mounted on the website together with a Latin transcription of Henry’s letter of February 1253 which is its centre piece.
