374. Christiana de Fornivall alias de Furnivall.
Writ of plenius certiorari to Richard de Holebrock, the king's steward, on the complaint of the men of William de Eylesford of Burton that they were being distrained by the constable of the king's castle of Rockingham, to pay 75s. yearly for the guard of the said castle, 7 Oct. 8 Edw. I.
[Northampton.] Inq. Monday before St. Luke, 8 Edw. I.
The said Christiana lately held the barony of Wardon, with 15 knights' fees pertaining thereto, for which she was accustomed to render 75s. for the guard of the castle of Rokingham, and when she had collected the money from the said fees she sent it to her own manor of Burthone, of another tenure, as her nearest manor to the castle, to be paid to the constable. After her death the said barony with other her lands &c. descended to Christiana and Agnes wives of Sir William and Sir John le Latimer, as her heirs; and the said William and John his brother for seven years have not sent the 75s. to the reeve of Burthon, so that the said men have been distrained by the constable, wherefore they have prayed the said William and John to levy the money from the said fees and acquit them, but they have done nothing. The said men have enquired who held the said fees, and have sought and received the following, viz.—
Cukenho and Harewedone. 5s. from Nicholas de Cukenho.
Isham. 5s. from Henry de Isham.
Suleby. 5s. from the abbot of Suleby.
Sydeston. 13s. 4d. from Robert de Waufre and his parceners.
Audewyncle. 2s. 6d. from Henry de Audewyncle.
Which sums this year they refuse to pay, and for seven years the men of Burthon have unjustly paid 44s. 2d. for the said William and John. Who hold the remaining fees, and whether the said William and John have collected the money, is unknown to the jury, but the said William and John have paid nothing to the men of Burthon, nor anything of the said 75s. of the guard of the castle.
Endorsed:—Let the men have peace and let it be enquired who hold these fees.
Writ to Richard de Holebrok, to enquire who hold the abovesaid fees, and who ought to pay the money, 10 Nov. 8 Edw. I.
[Northampton.] Inq. Wednesday, 3 March, 11 Edw. I.
Lady Christiana de Furnivall having been many times distrained at Wardon by the bailiffs of the said castle for the said guard, caused the said 75s. to be levied yearly from the said 15 fees, and transmitted to Burton to satisfy for the guard of the said castle by the hands of her bailiff there. After her death the bailiffs of the castle caused the same to be levied for eight years from the men of the manor of Burton who formerly were of the said Christiana and afterwards of William de Eylisford, until by the king's writ they obtained peace from that exaction, and for three years that annual guard has remained unpaid. The manor of Burton is not of the barony of Wardone, nor bound to contribute anything for that guard; the heirs of the said Christiana ought to levy the said annual guard from the said fees and pay it to the keeper of the castle, and if that guard should be in arrear, the king's bailiffs there ought and were accustomed to distrain in the manor of West Wardone, which is the chief manor of the barony. William and John le Latymer have yearly collected the said guard and detained it, excepting what the men of Burton received (as abovesaid).
The following hold the said fees:—
Lincoln; Oxford. Sythestan, Wyleby and Ouneby, co. Lincoln, and Wroxstan, co. Oxford. 4 fees held by Sir Robert de Waufre, the prior of Wroxston, Roger de Neuvile and John Spigot, who ought to render 20s. yearly for the said guard.

I.
Northumberland. Inq. Sunday after St. Mark, 9 Edw. I.
John de Eslington, grandfather of John the petitioner who is his heir, enfeoffed Alan de Eslington and Emma his wife of 120a. land in Framlington, who begot the said John the petitioner; and the said Alan and Emma died during the life of the said John the grandfather, who by reason of the minority of John the petitioner took him and that land into his wardship; and because he held the manor of Eslington of the king in chief, after his death the escheator took the manor of Framlington as well as that of Eslington into the wardship of King Henry; and when John the petitioner was of full age and had seisin by the said king's command, the escheator maliciously kept the said 120a. of the land of the said John in the king's hand, saying that that land was weyf; and it has been in the king's hand for ten years, and is not worth to the king more than 8s. yearly because it lies sterile and uncultivated.
