the sayde Byshop decreyng Caueats to be made in benefices, thereby knowyng the titles litigious, instituteth, and causeth to be in-

ducted wythout triall of any tytle or due order of lawe.

Marginalia8.Item, he directeth his mandates of inductiō vnto pryuate menne, and not to Tharchdeacō nor theyr Officials, contrary to the lawe and custome vsed in that behalfe. Notwithstanding he hath beene counsayled to the contrary, of menne that be learned.

Commentary  *  Close

The benefices of Llangattwg and Llanfihangel were in the hands of one of Ferrar's opponents. When the first fruits (a clerical tax owed to the Crown) of these livings were unpaid, Ferrar confiscated ('sequestered') goods from the local inhabitants equivalent to the amount due. This article is charging that in doing so Ferrar provoked a riot. The incident is described in Brown, pp. 169-70.
