Lots 45-48 from a private collection, United States.

By this document, Jacques [de Dinant], bishop of Arras [1248-59], records another document in French, of Lord Gilles de Feuring and Robert his son, giving land for a chapel, ‘… in hec verba: Iou giles de feuring chrs. et iou robertus fils et oirs du devant dit gilon … nous avons donne pour diu et en aumosne a iretage a tous iors a le capelerie de feuring ou a le parroche … seele ceste present escrit de nos seiaus. Che fu fait en lan … M.CC.& lv. el mois de marche’, followed by a Latin summary and added details, naming Mathilda and Aelydis, the men’s wives, witnessed by the abbot and convent of Mont-St-Eloi (cf. lot 47) and people of the parish ‘de anier infra cuius fines sita est villa de feuring et capella antedicta’ (line 6 from the end), dated the same month and year.

‘Anier’ is doubtless Agnières, less than 5 miles west of the abbey of Mont-St-Eloi, and ‘Feuring’ is doubtless the place now called Frévin-Capelle, which lies about a mile east of Agnières.
