Whereupon the abbot complained that Geoffrey and Agnes, contrary to that fine, deforced him of the services and customs which belong to the land.

Plea of fine. Geoffrey and Agnes have acknowledged the land to be the right of the abbot and his church of St. John the Evangelist of Croxton, and have rendered and quitclaimed it from themselves and the heirs of Agnes to the abbot and his successors and the convent of Croxton for ever; and for this the abbot has quitclaimed to Geoffrey and Agnes all the arrears of services and customs which were in arrear to him in respect of the land. And, moreover, the abbot has given them half a mark. (fn. 23)
