because pleas touching the advowsons of churches belong to our crown and dignity.  Witness etc. And so with respect to every right which may belong to a lay fee of  which the king ought to have cognisance. Similarly, let a writ be addressed to the  adverse party forbidding him to sue, in this form.
That he not sue.
 The king to such a one, greeting. We forbid you to sue the plea in court christian  concerning the lay fee of such a one in such a vill (or concerning debts, chattels or the  advowson of a church and the like) as to which the aforesaid complains that you draw  him into plea in court christian before such a judge (namely, the ordinary, or before  such judges, namely, judges delegate by authority of letters of the lord pope, or by  authority of letters of some other ordinary or by authority of letters of one subdelegated  by judges delegated by the lord pope) because such pleas etc. (as above).

A prohibition is drawn to the judges, forbidding  them to proceed, in this form, [if the dispute concerns an entire advowson.]

Because it is manifest that the aforesaid A. would incur the loss of his  advowson if the aforesaid C. should obtain in that cause, we forbid you to proceed  with it until it has been decided in our court to which of them, namely A. or D., the  advowson of that church belongs, because a plea concerning an advowson etc. (as  above). Witness etc. There is also another prohibition of the same kind, where an  action is sued as to part, just as of the whole, as where rectors dispute between themselves  as to the half or the third part of some church, which was divided of old among  the patrons by reason of
