96. (C. p. 68; D. art. 81).—Symon f. Aylef the chamberlain, by desire of Agnes his wife, grants to Holm abbey his meadow of Winteringmedue in Ruthchester by these bounds:—from the spring called Fouburne welle straight across towards the south to [a?] Rigge, and then bearing west round the meadow on either side where arable and meadow meet, to the said spring. Also that land of his demesne lying between the land of Robert f. Walter and the land of Roger his brother, his tenants, which land extends from the said meadow towards the south as far as the king's highway, with common easements, etc. [c. 1212.] (fn. 1)
97. (C. p. 68; D. art. 81).—Robert f. Aylef the chamberlain confirms to Holm abbey the grant of Symon his brother, namely Winteringmedue and the land of his demesne between the lands of Robert f. Walter and Roger his brother, at Rothcaster, as in Symon's charter [c. 1212].
97a. (H. 2).—Assize was held to enquire whether Simon de Rouchester had unjustly disseised the abbot of Holm from his free tenement in Rouchester, namely one acre of land and 3 acres of meadow. Simon in person pleaded that the abbot owned it and put it in his view when the writ was taken out on October 14th, 29th year of the king now reigning. The abbot said that he was not then seised of it, for Simon had disseised him. The jury found for the abbot, who recovered possession and 22s. damages. [If the king were Henry II the above date would be 1183; but it is more likely that the Simon in this case was a later namesake of the grantor of no. 96, making the king Edward I and the date Oct. 14, 1301.]
