Some Effects of the Last Phase of the Hundred Years War upon the Maintenance of Clergy

Extract

None will be surprised that there were English clergy in France and Normandy during the period of the Lancastrian occupation in the fifteenth century. What is perhaps surprising is that there were so few of them. Writing on Henry V, Professor Waugh noted that only about twenty of their names were to be found in the Norman Rolls for the last two years of the reign. While it is not always possible to agree with Waugh over the names of clergy whom he considered to be English, his estimate was on the whole correct. It is difficult to question it, since it is sometimes impossible to distinguish French from English names when given in Latin versions. Even Waugh’s contention that few Englishmen were appointed to ecclesiastical positions before 1421 can only be modified in detail: it cannot be gainsaid completely.
