1 The bishop of Bath and Wells collated to this prebend (LeNeveRev1BW 61, LeNeveRev2BW 54-5). There can be little doubt that there was a vicarage of Ilton at the time of the taxatio, to which the prebendary presented, as in 1326 (RegDrok 260). The bishop of Bath and Wells had collated to the vicarage in 1319 when the prebend was vacant: RegDrok 21. The vicarage was apparently too low in value to be listed as taxable.
