Also Hugh Parcanus, brother of the aforesaid William, confirmed the said donation, according to the tenor of the charter of the same William. Of his gift were two bovates of land for the fabric of the church, and three bovates of land, which Hervey the clerk had held, and all his demesne of Croxten in fee-farm, except his mansion and his vassals, as freely and entirely, as Ingeram his father, or William his brother, had ever more freely and fully possessed it, at a rent of four marks of silver annually. Of the gift of Marzaris de St. Aubin, and of Wymer, her son, the third part of the park within the circuit of the wall, and the third part of the carucate of land, which was that of Roger Parcarius, and all her rent of salt in Hoyland, namely, in Dennington. Matilda de Peners, mother of the aforesaid Hugh Pares¬rius, gave to them all her right in the aforesaid park. Also King Richard and King Henry, son of King John, confirmed the donation of William Portarius, in which confirmation the meadow of Crokeholm at 8edgebrook was comprehended.” Lions-la-Foret is the chef lieu of a canton in the arrondissement of Andely and department of the Eure, and in its vicinity was the Cistercian abbey of Mortemer-en-Lions, to which were benefactors in the year 1186 Enguerrand Portarius of Lions and Mathildis, his wife, and William their son. Hugh Portarius was also a benefactor in 1205, as also Robert de St. Aubin. Hugh le Porter had a fief at Periers and Peruel in the Roumojs, derived from his mother, which he sold to the abbot and monks of St. Ouen, for £230 money of Tours in 1206, his wife receiving from them .£5, and his eldest son, Enguerrand, a like sum.” In the same register. this ex¬tract identifies these Parcarii of Linus (an obvious misprint for Lions) with the Portarii of Lions ; “Ingeram le Porter came at the Conquest and had two parts of Corsham and Culington and had two sons, William and Hugh. And the Lord Henry, father of King Richard and of John made exchange with Ingeram le Porter of Corsham and Culington for two parts of Croxton and of Sedgebrook. And Masilia de Auppegard had the third part of Corsham and of Culington and in like manner made an exchange with the aforesaid Henry for the third part of Croxton and Sedgebrook.”
