Rev. Michael Adler

<plain_text><page sequence="1">6. Inventory of the Property of the Condemned Jews (1285) Part of a Pipe Roll in the Public Record Office. The charge of clipping the coin of the realm was frequently levelled against the English Jews of the thirteenth century.1 To what degree they were guilty it is difficult to ascertain, but public opinion ascribed to them the largest share in the injury done to the coinage.2 That this suspicion was not entirely without justification is shown by the fact that, in the year 1238,3 the principal Jews of the period headed by Aaron of York, the Arch-Presbyter,4 appealed to king Henry III, with a gift of ?100, asking him to decree the expulsion of those members of the Jewries who might be convicted of the crime. During the next forty years many charges were brought against the Jews, until, finally, in the year 1278,5 Edward I ordered the arrest 1 B.L?

Certain Christian money-changers and goldsmiths were treated in the same way. Nearly all the accused were declared guilty. Of the Christians, three were condemned to death and the others heavily fined. For the Jews there was no mercy. In London alone 293 were hanged7 and in other parts of the country many suffered the extreme penalty. Among the suspensi were included some of the most prominent Jews of the day, as Benedict the son of Licoricia of Winchester,8 Deudone, an ex-ehirographer of the same city,9 Hake (Isaac) le Prestre10 who had occupied the same position in Bristol, Abraham of Norwich,9 Jacob the son of Peitavin of Bedford,9 Bellassez,11 daughter of Master Benedict of Lincoln, Jacob Copin, the head of the Exeter community12 and Benjamin the son of Jacob of Lincoln.9 The Sheriffs of the counties were commanded to seize the property of the condemned.13 In London, the Mayor, Gregory de Rokesley and an Italian financier, Orlando de Podio, acted as the royal commissioners.14 In the area of south-western England, John le Falconer was appointed to supervise the work, and, upon his death shortly afterwards, Sir William de Braybeof, Sheriff of Southampton, continued the confisca? tion on behalf of the Crown.15 Portions of the property of the Jews had been concealed or secretly sold to Italian merchants or others.16 Thus, Henry of Dernegate in Winchester was fined 1,000 marks for 6 Annals of Oseney (Rolls Series), p. 278.

[Pipe Rolls (E. 372.) No. 130. of 13 Edward I.]19 Considerable light is thrown by this Pipe Roll upon the domestic life of the medieval Jews of England, their love of their faith as shown by the Scrolls of the Law and other Hebrew books they possessed as well as upon the nature of their business activities. The names of the following who were condemned in 1278 occur frequently in the Plea Rolls of the Exchequer, edited for the Society, and in other records, Benedict and Sweteman, his brother, of Winchester, Belecote,20 and her son, Salle, Cok (Isaac) son of Duceman, Salle of Wilton, Moses and Lumbard of Devizes, Mendaunt and Hake (Hak, Isaac) le Prestre of Bristol, Elyas of Gloucester, Deudone of Winchester, Moses Levi, Abraham Levi, Bonamy and Isaac of Kaune.20a Others,?whose names are not in the records hitherto published21 like Jose le Caleys (Calais), Salle Horiprut, Henne, daughter of Belecote, and Leo le Mire (who was involved in a murder charge in 1278)22?belonged to well-known families. Some names are new, as Aaron Boubon, Solomon Hamersteyn, Simon of Andover, Henne de Perine, Abraham of Southampton, Salum of Chippenham and Moses of Winchester.
