Warw. William Bagot was summoned to warrant to Robert de Westecote
a virgate of land and one-fourth of a virgate in Westcote, which Robert
claimed to hold of him, and for which he held his charter; and Robert complained that against the tenor of the charter, William had distrained him to
do suit out of the county and in the county of Stafford. William appeared,
and acknowledged his charter, and gift, but stated that the land was of the
inheritance of his wife, who was dead, and her son claimed the inheritance
against the said Robert, and that he was willing to make him an exchange of
equal value. It was therefore forbidden to William to implead Robert out of

William to warrant to Robert his land, as was just. m. 8.

Archdeacon of the same Church, which testified that by reason of the vacancy
of the see they admitted Henry, son of Peter de Northampton, to the said
Church, on the presentation of the Prior of Nostle of St. Oswald. Robert
appeared and denied the charter of his grandfather, and stated that the chest
(cista) of his grandfather was formerly in the Church of Lemington (Leamington Hastang), and his seal was in the same chest; and it was broken open, and
his jewels and his seal were carried off; and the malefactors were excommunicated throughout the Diocese; and if the charter ever was made, it was
made at that time; and he appealed to the witnesses of the charter, and to a
jury; and the witnesses who are now alive are Magister Roger de Ledesham;
Magister Henry de Swinlington; Eudo, clerk; Thomas, son of Suene, clerk;
Robert and Alexander, sons of Geoffrey de Stulham. It is considered that the
above witnesses should be summoned, and in addition to them, nine knights
or others of the vicinage of Nostle, in co. Ebor, to be at Westminster on the

when he died, of sixteen acres of land in Morton, etc., of which William

claim. m. 12.

in the assize of novel disseisin which was heard before the Justices at Lichfield, between Ralph Tyrell and Hugh de Byrchenfeld, plaintiffs, and the

Prior complained that the servant (serviens) of Hugh, on the occasion of the

assuming the name of his father, had prosecuted the assize, and had recovered
seisin of the said tenement by an assize of novel disseisin taken at Lichfield.

of Geoffrey, was seised in his demesne as of fee of twenty-six acres of land in
Flitlega on the day he died, and which land Robert de Ferrars holds; who came

return the inquisition under his seal on the Quinzaine of Easter at Westminster.

Richard, was seised as of fee when he died of 14s. of rent in Derhull, and of
4s. of rent in Russale, and which Richard de Rushale holds; who appeared and
stated that William held the rent only in custody, having bought it for the
use of him, Richard, out of his money, inasmuch as the said William was his
brother. The jury find that William, the father of the said Richard, bought
the land out of the money of his brother, to the use of the said Richard, and
Richard had received the homage of the men, so that William held it in
custody, and did not die seised of it as of fee. m. 1, dorso.

Staff. An assize of last presentation to the Church of Bobington, the
advowson of which the King claimed against John fitz Philip; who appeared
and stated that the Church was not vacant, because Leo, Clericus, was the
parson of it, and was present in court, and who said the same; but he said
nothing respecting the Bishop, nor of letters patent of Robert the Archdeacon
of Stafford, in which it was contained, that in consequence of the contumacy
of the Dean of Bridgenorth to the mandate of the delegated judges, he had
put the said Leo in possession of the Chapel of Bobinton, causa rei servandæ.
The jury state that a certain Alexander de Ludeston, who was Sheriff of
the Lord the King, and custodian of the Manor of Claverlegh, (fn. 12) which belonged
to the King, was patron of the said Church of Claverlegh of the gift of King
Henry, and presented one Odo, clerk, to the said Church of Bobinton, as a
chapelry pertaining to his Church of Claverlegh on the part of the Lord the
King; and they say that neither John nor his ancestors had presented the said
Odo. It is therefore considered that the Lord the King should recover seisin;
and because Leo had intruded himself into the Church, he is taken into
custody. m. 3.
Suff., but should be Staff. An assize came to make recognition if Thomas
de Herdinton (Erdington), father of Giles, who is within age, was seised as of
fee of the Manors of Hereborne and Smethewyke on the day he died, and
which manors Falco de Breaute and Margaret his wife hold; who appeared,
and said nothing against the assize being taken (quare assisa remaneat).
The jury find that the said Thomas, both in time of the war and before
the war, had been Sheriff of this county, and in the course of the war, Warin
fitz Gerold did not serve the King as he should have done, and the said Thomas
took all the lands of the said Warine into the King's hands by the King's
precept. Afterwards, however, the King took into his hands the bailiwick
and county of the said Thomas, and then Thomas gave up the said lands with
the rest of his bailiwick, and he went in the service of the King to Rome and
elsewhere, and afterwards had custody of the Tower of London; and after
peace was made he came and put himself in possession of the above manors,
and held them until the Council held in Lent at Worcester, and shortly afterwards he died. The jury are ignorant as to whether the said Thomas died
seised of the manors or not; but they have heard say that Thomas held a deed
of the said Falk, and that he was the homager of Falk; and the jury being
questioned as to who had held the lands on the day that the feoffment made to
Thomas put him into possession, after peace was made, say they are ignorant
whether the tenants of the manors performed fealty and paid their rents to
Warin fitz Gerold, or to Falk, or to Thomas, and they are uncertain whether
Thomas died seised of the lands as of fee or not. m. 3, dorso.
Staff. Robert, son of John de Hatton, who brought an assize of novel
disseisin against Ralph, Earl of Chester, respecting a tenement in Embrichton

Warw. An assize came to make recognition if William Trussell, brother
of Alice and of Matilda de Brochamton, and uncle of William de Kinton, and
of Alice, wife of Nicolas Brito, and of Ada, wife of William de Muslegh, and
of Eustachia, wife of Robert Nobil, and of Agnes and of Joan, sisters of Alice
and Ada, was seised in his demesne as of fee when he died, of a virgate of
land in Merton, which the Prior of Chaucumb holds, who called to warranty
Robert de Chaucumb, who called to warranty William Basset, and who came
and warranted the land, as appears on the Roll of the iter at Warwick; and
it is considered that he ought not to be called upon to warrant against the
heirs of William (Trussell), because it was contained in the charter of Amice,
mother of the said William, that she gave the land to Hugh, father of the
said. . . . (Robert), to hold &c., saving the rights of the heirs of the
said William Trussell, and therefore an assize was taken against the said
The jury say that the said William Trussel went to Jerusalem after the
coronation of King Richard, and he held at that time the land in fee and in
demesne, and he gave the land to farm for a term of three years to two men.
Six weeks or more after William had started on his pilgrimage, his wife was
killed in the house of John de Draicote her father, to whose charge William
had committed her, and she was carried to a marl pit, (fn. 13) and a certain William,
bastard brother of William Trussel, fled to a church [to sanctuary] for this
death, and acknowledged the murder and abjured the kingdom. And Walter,
the Esquire (armiger) of the said William Trusserel (sic), who had left the
said William on his journey, fled for the same murder, and William the
Bastard acknowledged that he and the said Walter had killed her; and on being
interrogated they say they never heard that the said William had been outlawed; and they say that the said Alice and others named are the nearest
heirs. It is considered therefore they should recover seisin of the land, and
Robert is in misericordiâ, and William to be quit of his warranty, and Robert
to make a competent exchange of land to the said Prior. m. 5.
Staff. The Lord the King sued the Prior of Kenilworth for half the
advowson of Stoke as his right, and of which the Lord Henry the King, his
grandfather, was seised as of fee and right, and had presented one Vivian,
Clerk, and who had been admitted on his presentation; and from the said
Henry the right descended to Henry the King as his son, and from Henry the
King to Richard his brother, and from King Richard to King John his father,
and from King John to the present King as his son and heir.
The Prior pleaded that his Church held half the advowson of the gift of
Walter de Kaverswall, and produced the deed of the said Walter, and another
deed of King Henry, the grandfather of the King, who conceded and confirmed the gift of half the Church of the gift of Walter de Kaverswall; and
because the grandfather of the King had confirmed the gift, it seemed to the
Prior that the Lord the King ought to warrant it to his House.
And the Lord the King, by the Earl of Chester, his attorney, stated that
the said Walter was the Bailiff of the Lord the King Henry, grandfather of
the King, and Vicar of the Patron, and never had any right to the advowson,
or any seisin of it. (fn. 14)
And the Prior stated that Walter held the land and advowson, and that
afterwards a concord was made between him and the Lord the King, and he
called to warranty Robert de Kaverswall and Alice (fn. 15) his wife, the daughter
and heir of the said Walter. Robert and Alice to appear at a month from
Michaelmas. m. 5.

before the Justices Itinerant in that county, for the assize between the Prior
of Sandwell and Ralph Tyrell respecting a fence thrown down in the common
of pasture of Huneswurth, to certify which fence was prostrated, &c., and to
cause to appear four discreet men of the recognitors at Westminster to certify
the same to the justices.
And William de Alrewyc, Thomas de Laveston, Warine de Derhull, and
Richard fitz Henry, four of the jury, came and stated they had made a view
of the Haye, and found three hedges had been thrown down; but they say
that the Prior had prostrated them when he heard of the disseisin, and that
the hedge of which Ralph complained was put up before the return of King
John from Ireland into England; (fn. 16) therefore the Prior is dismissed from the
suit, and Ralph to have a writ to summon twenty-four knights at the advent
of the Justices, to make recognition if the said hedge of which Ralph complained was put up before the last return of the King, &c. m. 5, dorso.
