In this year of our lord 1378, in the morning after saint Laurence's day, was Robert Hawle slain in the church of Westminster by Sir Aleyn Boxley, Sir Rauf Fereres, and Markle, who was there [at Westminster] a sergeant at arms. Also in the same year it was ordered that every person [undirgrowe?] should pay three pence to the king; and thi cause was the most cause of the rising after, for in Kent they began to search first maidens and others.
