Sheriff's aid

Land tax received by sheriffs as payment for holding courts of shire and "hundred. Henry II intended to have the tax paid into the treasury. It was over whether or not the Church should pay this tax that Henry II and Thomas Becket as archbishop of Canterbury clashed so fiercely and publicly at a council held at Woodstock in 1163. Becket asserted the Church would not pay because the king was not entitled to it. There was an open debate which the king lost, the assembly siding with Becket.
