||In 1293 John de Bulmer was summoned to show the royal commissioners
under what authority he claimed freewarren in Wilton in Clifland, Laysinby,
Lankenby, Cotum and Bulmere, a free
park in Thornton-under-Ryseberghe in
the king's forest of Pikerynge, amends
of the assise of beer broken of all his
tenants in the said vills, and infangenthef
and gallows in the same. In defence,
he alleged that he claimed freewarren
in Bulmere and Welleburne, which was
a member of Bulmere, by a charter of
Hen. III., dated in the 30th year of his
reign (1245–6), which he showed, and
which witnessed that such a grant had
been made to John de Bulmere, the
claimant's father, whose heir he was,
of freewarren in his demesne lands in
Bulmere and Wellebrune. He claimed
freewarren in his fee in all the other
vills, and a free park, by a charter of
King John, dated in the 5th year of his
reign (1203–4), which he showed, and
which witnessed that the king had
given leave to Alan de Wilton, relative
(consanguineo) of the same John, whose
heir he was, to enclose his wood in
Torenton, called Riselegh (sic), and to
make a free park of it, and to have
dogs in the said vill for running in that
park; also freewarren at Wilton with
its members, namely, Cothum, Laysingby, and Lacneby, in his fee, outside
the king's forest. He claimed amends
of the assise of beer broken and infangenthef in all the said vills and
gallows in Bulmere, which served for
Bulmere and Welleburne, and gallows
likewise in Wilton, which served for
Wilton, Laysingby, Lankenby and
Cotum, from old time (ad antiquo).
He said that he and his antecessors
from a time of which there was no
memory (a tempore quo non extat
memorid), had always peacefully used
a franchise of this kind without any
interruption (Yorkshire Assise Rolls.
N. 1. 16–2. m. 5). The way in which
John de Bulmer was the heir of Alan
de Wilton appears from an action he
brought in Hilary Term, 21 Edw. I.
(1292–3), against the Prior of Helagh
Park about the advowson of the Hospital
of St. Nicholas at Yarm, which he alleged
had been in the time of Richard I. in
the possession of his antecessor Alan
(de Wilton), who had entrusted it to
William de Barnham, his clerk. "And
from the same Alan, because he died
without issue, the right descended to
his brother and heir, Thomas; and
from Thomas, because he died without
issue, the right reverted (resortiebatur)
to Stephen, brother of Alan, grandfather
of the said Alan, as his relative and
heir ; and from Stephen the right
descended to John, his son and heir;
and from John to another John, his son
and heir; and from this last John to
John de Bulmer, the plaintiff, as his
son and heir." The prior claimed the
advowson, on the ground that Alan de
Wilton had given it to his predecessor,
Prior William. The issue of the trial
is not given. (Ibid. N. 1. 18.–1. m. 54.)
The generation omitted in the pleadings
between the two Alans was occupied by
Ralph de Bulmer of Wilton in Cleveland (Plantagenet Harrison's History of
Yorkshire ii., 123).

||In 1293 the jurors of the Wapentake

Easingwold, with its members, Kereby

ancient demesne of the Crown in the
reign of King John, and that Edmund,
the king's brother, then held it of the
gift of his father, Henry III. The

In Domesday (ff. 17, 85) it is coupled with Farlington. In anaction in Trinity Term,

and others, about a freehold in Newesom in Rydale, it was alleged by the plaintiff
that the tenements were in Fornethorpe, "que est quoddam hamelettum de Butterwike"
(Coram Rege. No. 159, m. 35). It is perhaps identical with South
Fornythorpe mentioned in connection with Cornbrought in 1598 (Yorks. Fines. Tudor. iv. 108).

From the year-book of 35 Edw. I. (Rolls Series, p. 533), we learn that the wife of Robert,

He seems to have murdered a man, and
then allowed the guilt to be laid at
another's door. "Johannes de Twenge

quadam vangia in villa de Corneburgh',
ita quod quarto die postea inde obiit.
Et predictus Johannes post factum tenuit
se in patria usque adventum justiciariorum nunc, pro eo quod predicta felonia
inposita fuit cuidam Rogero le Forester
de Corneburgh' per quandam inquisicionem factam coram Coronatore etc.
Et tune predictus Johannes fugit et
male creditur. Ideo exigatur et utlagetur. Catalla ejus xxxli xiiijs ixd, unde

Rogerus le Forester presens fuit, ubi

afterwards brought letters addressed to
Hugh de Cressingham and the other
Justices Itinerant in Yorkshire, dated at
Westminster, June 7th, 22 Edward I.
(1294), by which the king granted him
"quibusdam certis condicionibus" pardon for the murder of Roger Colstan
