Grant to the burgesses of Lynn, at the request of John Bishop of Norwich, that the borough of Lynn should be a free borough for ever, with rights of local jurisdiction, freedom from tolls except in London, and a merchant gild. They were to follow the law and custom of Oxford, and in the event of their being in doubt or contention as to how to resolve a question they were to send messengers to Oxford and abide by the decision of the burgesses there. The existing liberties and customs in Lynn of the Bishop of Norwich and the Earl of Arundel were to continue unchanged.
Dated at Ludgershall, 6 John.
