Term: Easter 1423
County: Surrey
Writ type: Trespass (against statute)
Damages claimed: £200
Damages awarded: 60s
Case type: Contract (general); Real action / rents / damage to real estate

Pleading: The Prior of Lewes states that on 20 September 1403, John Oke, former Prior of Lewes, demised to Simon Berde 13 shops in Southwark for a term of 30 years. However, he has wasted this property, allowing the shops, each worth 100s, to stand unroofed, and the walls and timbers have rotted. He also cut down trees in the gardens, namely 4 pearmains called 'warden' trees worth 20s each, 1 pear called 'Jonat' (gennet) pears worth 20s, one pear called 'Sanon' worth 20s, 1 pear called 'Saunspere' worth 20s, one pear called 'chaysell' (Chaxhill) worth 20s, two apple trees called 'costard' trees worth 13s 4d each, one apple tree called 'Queen apple' worth 13s 4d, nine plum trees called 'damson trees' worth 20d each, and two nut trees called 'Walshenottres', worth 13s 4d each. This is against an ordinance of the king's council against waste, damage or sale of demised property, and to his damage of £200.

Pleading: SB denies this claim, with exception that he did cut down one pearmain and two plum trees. Both parties on country. And regarding the pearmain and plum trees, SB claims that they were not worth what the Prior claimed, as they were dead, and the wood was no use for building.

Pleading: The Prior refuses to withdraw his charge regarding these trees, stating they were healthy and bearing leaves and fruit at the time.

Pleading: SB again says that the trees were dead. Both parties on the country. Sheriff to have jury here at the quindene of Trinity, and meanwhile he should get the jurors to view the waste to the houses.

Postea text: Process continued, jurors in respite until the octave of Martinmas 1423. Jurors say that SB made waste of the 13 shops as claimed by the Prior, 3s 4d on each shop, along with 6s 8d for each of two pearmains, one pear called 'Jonettre' worth 16d and 2 plums worth 12d each.

Case type: Bond; Contract (general); Taking of goods

Pleading: Defendants amerced for many defaults. John Doughton states that he was robbed at Burnham, Buckinghamshire, of certain linen cloth belonging to Henry Northcote, which he was carrying between London and Cirencester. HN and Rokewode, not knowing where the robbers were but seeking to defraud and deceive Doughton, went from Cirencester to London to find and take the robbers, then returned, falsely claiming that the robbers were taken and in the king's prison, and offering to prosecute JD's case against them if he paid their expenses. In surety of this he made a bond, at Cirencester, for £40 with HN and Thomas Fauconer, but since then he has suffered such threats of suits and actions from them in various London courts as a result of this bond that he has been unable to prosecute his original case, for which they claim expenses despite never actually doing anything.

Case type: Housebreaking; Real action / rents / damage to real estate

Pleading: John Martyn states that he held a water mill in Faversham, and he and all other holders of this mill have always had access to a certain watercourse in the town which ran the mill. However, on 10 November 1421, Thomas Fauconer, with Robert Fen, William Bregges and John Eston, forcibly broke a section of the watercourse and built a new bank, diverting half of the water from its rightful course from that day until 7 December 1422, thus leading to the mill milling less that 6 quarters of grain each day instead of the 20 quarters it used to mill, and losing Martyn the greater part of his profits, to his damage of £40.

Pleading: TF says that at the time of the alleged trespass the land where the bank was supposedly broken and built anew was the free tenement of himself, Philippa his wife, John Barton, senior, John Darell and Roger Twysden.

Pleading: JM states that at the time of the trespass the land was the free tenement of the Abbot of Faversham's men and tenants, and the residents of Faversham had rights of common, and was not the property of Fauconer, as he alleges.

Pleading: TF repeats that the land was his free tenement at the time of the alleged trespass. Both parties on the country. Sheriff to have jury here at the quindene of Trinity.
