D. 1337, directed his writ to the barons of the Exchequer, commanding them to take inquisition of the value of the said sanctified places, so given up to the Hospitallers, and of the residue of the Temple, and certify the same under their seals to the king, in order that a reasonable abatement might be made in William de Langford's rent. From the inquiry made in pursuance of this writ before John de Shorditch, a baron of the Ex chequer, it further appears that on the said residue of the Temple upon the land then remaining in the custody of William de Langford, and withinside the great gate of the Temple, were "another BALL * and four chambers connected therewith, a kitchen, a garden, a stable, and a chamber beyond the great gate ; also eight shops, seven of which stood in Fleet Street, and the eighth in the suburb of London, without the bar of the New Temple ; that the annual value of these shops varied from ten to thirteen, fifteen, and sixteen shillings ; that the fruit out of the garden of the Temple sold for sixty shillings per annum in the gross ; that seven out of the thirteen houses erected by Roger Blom were each of the annual value of eleven shillings ; and that the eighth, situated beyond the gate of entrance to the church, was worth four marks per annum. It appears, moreover, that the total annual revenue of the Temple then amounted to 73Z. 6s. 1 \d., * Sunt etiam ibidem claustrum, espella Sancti Thorns, et qnjedam platea terra eidem cspellffi annexata, cum una aula et camera supra edificata, qua* sunt loca sancta, et Deo dedicata, et dicta* ecclesia annexata, et eîdem Priori per idem breve Uberata . . . .
