From A.D. 1boo to 1215 is a remarkable period in the history of the English Church and English monasteries. Monasteries were built and richly endowed with lands, churches, and tithes, either in whole or part. All these were conveyed by deeds of gifts to the perpetual use of certain monasteries. The benefactions were given for the special purpose of prayers being perpetually said by the monks in their respective churches for the repose of the souls of the donors and their relatives. In many cases the monasteries received only the tithes, without any churches- but when they received churches, with the cure of souls, then the monastic corporations became the rectors, and, in later times, but not at first, were bound to get the licence of the king and bishop to complete the scheme, so that their corporations may become perpetual incumbents.

For many centuries the gifts were conveyed by layowners, without any reference to the king or bishop, for they were considered as private property, which the owner may dispose of to whom he wished. This was afterwards changed, and a licence had to be obtained, as I have previously stated. The Norman monks, after the Conquest, had first introduced the custom of appropriating the tithes, with the churches, to the monastic corporations. It was another piece of monkish trickery and cunningness to get money, and lands, and buildings.

When they gained possession of the churches, with their tithes, either by free gifts or by the purchase of advowsons, --for the monks invested largely in such purchases, --they found it very profitable. As religious services had to be performed in the church appropriated to the monastery, the monastic body had either to depute one of their own.
