An agreement was made in the fourth year after the first coronation of Richard, king of England, ‘in cathedra sancti Petri apostoli’, in the general chapter of the Premonstratensians at Newhouse, before William, abbot of Lastingham and Robert, abbot of Newhouse, between Leicester Abbey and Dryburgh Abbey concerning the payment of 10s. which the abbot of Leicester claimed from the abbot of Dryburgh out of the gift of Richard de Morville for a half ploughgate of land at Bangly Hill (ELO), which Dryburgh holds. Leicester Abbey has quitclaimed to Dryburgh the land for an annual payment of 5s. that they had been assigned at Northampton; the canons of St James of Northampton shall pay to the canons of Leicester 22s. yearly at the Purification of BVM, which had been paid to Dryburgh for the church of Bozeat.
3 September 1192 X 2 September 1193
22 Feb. 1193
Fourth year of Richard I, king of England, prob. on the feast of St Peter in cathedra; however, the printed version in Stringer adds a dating clause of 1193 (i.e. 25 Mar. 1193-24 Mar. 1194), so may be dated 25 Mar.×2 Sept. 1193.

It is not clear whether this refers to the feast of St Peter in cathedra (i.e. 22 Feb.), or whether it refers to the coronation of Richard I, which took place upon St Edward’s Chair in the Collegiate Church of St Peter in Westminster.
