A resident of a tenement worth 20s. annual rent or more shall make an offering of holy bread and a candle. If the tenement is divided among several residents but the total rent exceeds 20s. annually they may jointly offer holy bread and a candle, and each make a contribution according to the amount of his lease. If there are several shops under one roof and the[total value of the] lease is 20s. annually, they may jointly give holy bread and make a contribution according to the amount of each's lease. If it is a capital tenement which has other tenements under one roof (not separated) and the capital tenement is worth 20s. annually or more it shall give holy bread without any contributions being made [by the adjoining tenements?]. If this [capital] tenement is not inhabited, then the adjoining tenements so long as their [total] lease is worth 20s. annually and one of them that is inhabited is worth at least 6s.8d annually shall jointly give holy bread and each make a contribution according to the value of each's lease. If there are three tenements or shops situated together, with each of them worth 6s.8d annually, they shall give holy bread in the same fashion. If there are two inhabited tenements situated together and one is worth 6s.8d and the other 13s.4d annually, they shall jointly give holy bread [contributing] according to the value of each's lease. With the proviso that no tenement or shop that by itself is worth less than 6s.8d annually or that is inhabited by mendicants should be obliged to make any contribution towards holy bread.
[Holy bread (panis benedictus) was a loaf that was blessed after Mass and then cut up for distribution among parishioners. Mendicants may refer here to the friars who had taken a vow of poverty, or simply to poor people. In 1428 this ordinance was reconfirmed after some debate about the question of shared contributions by multiple residences under a single roof.]
