6.
YORK. Inq. taken at Holme in Rydale, Wednesday after Easter, 11 Richard II, before Thomas de Etton and Stephen de Herlethorp.
Norton and Sutton by Malton. 4 messuages, 6 tofts, 14 1/2 bovates of land, a moiety of a watermill and a moiety of a fulling-mill there, which William Playce, father of Thomas, who died about 19 years ago, held of John de Moubray of Axiholm, knight, late a minor in the wardship of Edward III, by knight’s service, are worth 18l. 6s. 5 1/2d. yearly. William de Aton, knight, now deceased, John Codelyng, clerk, and John Amyas had possession of them and received the issues for about 12 years, namely, from the time of the death of the said William father of Thomas until the full age of William son of William son of the same Thomas, who was 9 years old at the time of the death. The said William son of William then entered on the lands etc. as his right and inheritance, and received the issues until the Invention of the Holy Cross last, when he died, being then in seisin of the premises and 4 messuages and a carucate of land in Thresk. He held all the said lands etc. of Thomas Moubray, earl Marshal, earl of Nottingham and lord de Segrave, a minor in the king’s wardship, as of his manor of [Thresk], by knight’s service. Who has had possession since his death the jurors know not. He was married by Thomas de Hatfeld, late bishop of Durham, to Margaret daughter of Thomasia de Furnyvall, [by what title] the jurors know not. The marriage was worth 200 marks. Elizabeth [his daughter], aged 7 years, is his heir. She is in the custody of the said Thomasia and Margaret, and her marriage is worth 300l.
Brandesby and Steresby. The manors, late of John de la Ryvere, who died on Christmas day, 2(?) Richard II, are held of the said Thomas Moubray, as of his manor of Thresk, by knight’s service, and should descend by hereditary right to Marmaduke, son of William de la Ryvere son and heir of the said John, now 19 years of age. They ought to pertain to the king by reason of the minority of the heirs aforesaid, because, although the said John de la Ryvere long before his death enfeoffed William Canon, Thomas de Britby and Richard de Overton, chaplains, thereof, to hold in fee simple, nevertheless it was and is a condition of the feoffment that the said feoffees should enfeoff the said Marmaduke thereof when he reached full age, so that the feoffment was made in fraud of the statute. The feoffees have received the issues since the death of John for the use of Marmaduke. The said heir was married by John during his lifetime.

The manor, together with the towns of Brumpton, Langton, Salden, Sutton, Knapton, Alde Malton, Howe, Wycombe, Hoton, Wyntryngham in Bukrosse, Scampston, Shirburn, Thorpbasset, Plumpton, Mulwath, Goldesburgh, Swynton, Suthholme, Wymbilton, Muscotes, Bergh, Neusom, Holm in Spaldyngmore, Feriby, Willardby and Brewton, parcels of the said manor, ought to have pertained to Edward III and ought to pertain to the king because William Vescy, knight, formerly held it with its parcels of John son of Roger Moubray, knight, as of his manor of Thresk, by knight’s service, to wit, by service of 15 1/2 knight’s fees, and died in seisin without heir, and after his death it ought to have pertained to the said John son of Roger as his escheat, and from him the right descended to John his son and heir, and from him to John his son and heir, and from him to John Moubray his son and heir, earl of Nottingham, who was long a minor in the wardship of the late and present kings, and from the said earl, now deceased, to Thomas his brother and heir, earl Marshal, earl of Nottingham and lord de Segrave, a minor in the king’s wardship; and so, by reason of the minority of the said heirs, the escheat ought to have pertained to Edward III and ought to pertain to the present king.
William de Aton, knight, entered the said manor with its parcels while John the earl was a minor in the wardship of Edward III, and received the issues all his life, by what title the jurors know not, and died in seisin on Tuesday after St. Laurence, 11 Richard II. Katherine wife of Ralph de Evere, knight, Anastasia wife of Edward Seint John, knight, and Elizabeth wife of John Conier, knight, are daughters and heirs of the said William de Aton, and each of them is over 23 years of age.
