They also release to the Abbot and Convent the right which they claimed in the houses of Paris, Archdeacon of Rochester, on the Thames, in London, and the right which they claimed in the tenement of the park-keepers of Boxley. They also grant to the monks the right of free fishing in the Medway opposite their land.)
