Chancery (medieval office)

Chancery or chancellery is a general term for a medieval writing office, responsible for the production of official documents. The title of chancellor, for the head of the office, came to be held by important ministers in a number of states, remains the title of the heads of government in modern Germany and Austria. Chancery hand is a term for various types of handwriting associated with chanceries; the word chancery is from French, from Latin, refers to the lattice-work partition that divided a section of a church or court, from which derives chancel, cancel "cross out with lines", more distantly, incarcerate "put behind bars" – see chancery for details. In England, this office was one of the two main administrative offices, along with the Exchequer, it began as part of the royal household, but by the 13th-century was separate from the household and was located at Westminster. It produced all the writs, which were all sealed with the Great Seal; the office was headed by the Chancellor of England, was staffed by royal clerks.

It came into existence shortly before the Norman Conquest of England, was retained by King William I of England after the Conquest. In 1199, the chancery began to keep the Charter Rolls, a record of all the charters issued by the office. In 1201, the Patent Rolls, a similar record of letters patent began, in 1204 the Close Rolls, or record of letters close began. Although the English Chancery was responsible for most of the charters and writs issued by the government, they were not responsible for all of them, as the Exchequer and the justiciars continued to issue writs during the Angevin period. Whether there was a formal chancery office in Anglo-Saxon England prior to the Norman Conquest is a matter of some debate amongst historians; some hold that most royal charters in Anglo-Saxon England were produced by the beneficiaries of the charter. Other historians hold that by the 10th and 11th centuries most royal charters were produced by royal clerks, thus they were produced in some sort of chancery-like office.

The crusader states in the Levant had chanceries. In the Principality of Antioch, the office was responsible for producing all documents pertaining to the administration of the principality. One office holder in the Antiochene chancery was Walter the Chancellor, who wrote the only early history of the state. In the Kingdom of Jerusalem, the chancery produced hundreds of documents; the chancellor of Jerusalem was one of the highest posts in the kingdom. One famous chancellor was the chronicler William of Tyre. In the Duchy of Normandy, after 1066 a ducal chancery developed under William's sons Robert Curthose and Henry I; the French royal chancery first appears in a rudimentary form during the Merovingian dynasty. They borrowed from the diplomatic institutions of the late Roman Empire, had four officials clerics, called "referendaries" who guarded the king's seal; the documents are formulaic using the formulary of Marculf as a source. They used their own script, messy with many ligatures, their Latin was of poor quality.

After the Merovingians were overthrown by the Mayors of the Palace, the chancery began to develop more fully. The Carolingian chancellor was the Archbishop of Reims, he was a member of the king's council, while the actual business of the chancery was conducted by lesser officials. Louis the Pious created a new formulary, the Formulae Imperiales, the basis of formularies used in centuries, they used a different script, the more legible Carolingian minuscule. The Carolingian chancery took requests from those who wished to have a charter drawn up, the king would send missi to investigate the situation. In the Capetian period, the chancellor was still the Archbishop of Reims; the chancery itself tended not to write its own charters, but rather confirmed charters, written by the intended recipient. This reflected the relative powerlessness of the Capetian kings, unlike their Carolingian predecessors, controlled only the Ile-de-France, it was not until the 12th century that the chancellor became the head of the chancery, rather than the guardian of the king's seal.

This chancellor was a member of the Great Officers of the Crown of France, which developed in the 11th and 12th centuries. Because the chancellor had power over the granting of charters and other benefits, the kings saw them as a threat to their own authority, the office sometimes lay dormant for many years. Philip II abolished the post in 1185, the chancery remained without an official head for most of the thirteenth and part of the fourteenth century; the head of the chancery in this period took over the guardianship of the seal, was not a cleric. Documents in this period were signed as "cancellaria vacante"; when the chancellorship was restored in the fourteenth century, it was held by laymen and became the highest ranking of the Great Officers. In the fourteenth century the rest of the chancery staff consisted of secretaries, they were appointed by the chancellor and wrote royal letters and other documents that were not produced by the beneficiaries. The most important official after the chancellor was the audencier, who presided over the ceremony in which the chancellor affixed the royal seal to a document.

The chancery charged a tax to recipients of charters. The Capetian chancery used a minuscule script, documents were written in Latin until the thirteenth century, when French began to be used; the majority of the documents produced by the chancery were

WIN Corporation

WIN Corporation is a private Australian media company, that owns assets including the WIN Television network, Crawford Productions and several local radio stations. The company is based in New South Wales; the WIN brand began from a sole free-to-air terrestrial television station in Wollongong, WIN-4, owned by Television Wollongong Transmissions. In 1979, then-owner Rupert Murdoch sold his 76 per cent controlling interest in TWT to Oberon Broadcasters, a private investment group which included Paramount Television programming executive Bruce Gordon; this allowed Murdoch to purchase Sydney station TEN-10. In 1985, TWT was made public on the-then Sydney Stock Exchange as TWT Holdings Limited with Gordon retaining a 70 per cent stake. Gordon privatised the business in 1992 to become WIN Corporation. In the late 1980s, the Federal Government's television equalisation program gave Gordon the opportunity to initiate a period of growth by acquiring television stations in regional Queensland and Tasmania.

In the late 1990s, WIN acquired their South Australian station and developed a new Western Australian station from scratch. These stations were integrated into; the WIN Network covers large area s of regional Australia and has a total audience reach of 4.842 million people. Through Bruce Gordon's leadership, in the late 1990s and 2000s, WIN built stakes in PBL, Network Ten, TPG Telecom. TPG Telecom was at the time owned fellow Nine affiliate NBN Television. August 2005 saw WIN purchase a controlling 50.1 per cent stake in satellite subscription television carrier SelecTV, however failure in adequately growing the subscriber base along with high debts saw the business placed in voluntary administration in February 2011. On 21 April 2007, the board of Sunraysia Television endorsed WIN's revised offer of $163 million for Channel Nine Perth, which went through on 8 June 2007. On 30 May 2007, Southern Cross Broadcasting announced its sale of Channel Nine Adelaide to WIN for $105 million. In June 2013, WIN offloaded the Nine-branded metropolitan Adelaide station to Nine Network's parent Nine Entertainment Co. for $140 million along with an option to purchase the Perth station, exercised in September 2013.

In October 2015 WIN Corporation purchased a 14 per cent stake in Nine Entertainment Co. from investment fund operator Apollo. In 2008, WIN invested in a 50 per cent share of the Australian Poker League, buying from its founder Martin Martinez; however this stake was sold in 2012. On 4 June 2009, signalling their continued interest in digital assets, WIN increased to 18.4 per cent their stake in publicly listed company Quickflix, an Australian provider of online DVD rental and subscription movie and television series downloads. In the following years, WIN's share of the business dwindled down to 3.5 per cent as of 2014 as Quickflix continued to raise capital through issuing new shares. In April 2016, Quickflix entered voluntary administration. WIN held a long-term interest in a small cinema chain in Tasmania through a joint venture with Village Roadshow until 2013; the joint venture owned four cinemas which were branded as'Village Cinemas'. This interest was acquired by ENT Ltd. in 1988. In early 2006, WIN Corporation bought a 25% stake in the St. George Illawarra Dragons from the Illawarra Steelers for $6.5 million.

In August 2018 WIN Corporation purchased the Illawarra Steelers remaining 25% stake for a "commercially in confidence" sum, taking its stake to 50%. It was announced on 23 May 2016 that WIN Television had signed an affiliation agreement with Network Ten for a five-year period starting on 1 July 2016. WIN's former affiliation partner, Nine Network, signed with Southern Cross Austereo in April 2016 having secured a 50 per cent revenue share deal. WIN plays a prominent role in the local Illawarra community through investment in long-term naming rights to the Dragons' Wollongong home ground, WIN Stadium. WIN holds naming rights to the neighbouring WIN Entertainment Centre, home to basketball's Illawarra Hawks. In June 2019, WIN closed several newsrooms throughout New South Wales and Queensland, including Orange, Wagga and Queensland's Hervey Bay.
