Whereupon the said Sir John was brought before the king in parliament between two earls, namely Huntingdon and the marshal, dressed in a cloth as a dress of honour, and his sword carried before him, the hilt uppermost. And then the king's charter of the said creation was read aloud before the king, lords, and commons in parliament.

The tenor of which charter follows:
.

Parliament Rolls Richard II Jan 1397: On behalf of the bishop of Llandaff, touching his temporalities in the vacancy. 24. The bishop of Llandaff submitted a petition in parliament, the tenor of which follows:
John bishop of Llandaff shows, as well for our lord the king as for himself, in the present parliament that whereas the keeping of the temporalities of all the archbishoprics and bishoprics within the kingdom of England and land of Wales, in whichsoever lordships or franchises they may be, pertain during the vacancy of the same archbishoprics and bishoprics to our said lord the king and to none other, as by right of his crown and dignity. And whereas the bishopric of Llandaff, through the death of Andrew lately bishop there, by whose death the keeping of all the temporalities of the said bishopric ought by right to pertain to our said lord the king during the same vacancy - Thomas Beauchamp, earl of Warwick, after the death of the said bishop, entered the manor of Bishopston, part of the temporalities of the said bishopric in the lordship and land of Gower in Wales, and continues his possession still, and has taken the profits thereof, claiming to have the keeping of the said manor in times of vacancy by reason of the said lordship and land of Gower, wrongfully and in contempt of our said lord the king and in derogation of his crown. Wherefor the said bishop prays, as well for our lord the king as for himself, that the said manor with its appurtenances be seized into the hands of our lord the king and delivered to the said bishop.
Which petition having been read aloud in parliament and heard by the king and lords, the said matter was announced to the said earl of Warwick being then present in parliament, which earl having deliberated upon it could not deny the entry or occupation of the said manor and the taking of the issues and profits of the same, and had no excuse to make, but that he and his ancestors had acted in the same manner. And because he could not justify his deed, he submitted himself to the king's grace. Wherefor it was adjudged by the king and lords in parliament that the said manor of Bishopston with all its appurtenances should be taken into the king's hands, and the king answered for the issues of the said manor taken by the said earl; and writs made thereon as appropriate; and that the said earl makes fine to the king for the contempt.
