Show Me the Money

Canon of Birkley was a greedy clergyman who kept Beatrice as a bondservant ("property of the Church") because her father owed him a large debt and couldn't pay it off before he died. His conniving get-rich schemes with the Sheriff of Nottingham were ultimately thwarted by Beatrice's betrothed, John of York, and Robin Hood.
