[m. 17d.] John of Cornhulle, surgeon, was attached to answer Alice of Stockyngge in a plea of trespass. The pl. complains that on Wednesday before the feast of St. Barnabas the Apostle, 13 Edward II [10th June, 1320], the def. came to her in Fletestrete and, arrogating to himself the office of surgeon, undertook to cure her within the quindene of an infirmity of the feet from which she was suffering, for the sum of half a mark,-

-and applied divers medicaments against the said infirmity. In consequence of his treatment, however, the pl. was within six days unable to put her feet to the ground and her malady became completely incurable. In spite of this, on Monday before the feast of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist next following [23rd June] the def. entered her house with force and arms and carried off a blanket, two sheets and a super-tunic worth 20s., so that she suffered damage to the extent of 100m. The def. comes and denies the charge alleging that he did not undertake to cure the pl., and did not infect her feet with his medicaments, or enter her house against her will etc., and thereupon he puts himself upon his country. Afterwards a jury of the venue of Fletestrete comes and returns a verdict for the pl. They find that he carried off from her house goods to the value of 1m. She is awarded £30. 16s. 8d. damages.
