Excerpt from Monumenta Franciscana: Scilicet, I. Thomas De Eccleston De Adventu Fratrum Minorum in Angliam; II. Adæ De Marisco Epistolæ; III. Registrum Fratrum Minorum Londoniæ

But the preference thus given to the country where the baron was paramount, and his will unrestrained, drove from the fields into the town whatever remained unsubdued of the Spirit of freedom and energy. In the town the anglo-saxon thane or alderman could shut his eyes and his gates upon his oppressor. Utterly destitute of social comfort or civilization, except what the Roman had left him, he felt himself secure behind his walls and ditches from the reach of feudal tyranny. He was in equal degree secure from ecclesiastical supervision and interference. Monasteries had provided for the spiritual rule and welfare of the country; for the towns there was no such provision.
