Plaintiff by his attorney complains that the defendants entered his
said forest and took and carried away his wild animals (feras) without
his leave and wish and against the peace. Defendants come not and
have made many defaults: the Sheriff was ordered to distrain on their
lands, etc., and to have them here this day, but has done nothing in the
matter nor sent the writ. Sheriff again ordered to distrain and to have
the defendants at Winchester on the Quinzaine of Easter [15 April
1263], and also the Sheriff to hear his Judgment.
m. 5 dorso.; Lancastre.
Trespass—Robert de Ferrers v. Juliana de Assarto re
Plaintiff says that Juliana received at her house Richard Barun and
Richard de Blake son of Adam de Knuesle who, at the Nativity of S. John
Baptist ao 45 [24 June 1261], entered his forest between Ryble and Merse
and took therein many wild animals which they carried away to her
house: and he claims for loss and damage 100 pounds.
Juliana denies (defendit) the injury and whatever is against the
peace, and says that never since Robert had seisin has she received any
wrongdoers in the said forest: and she asks a trial, and Robert likewise.
The Sheriff is ordered to enquire, and to have the Inquisition at Winchester
on the Quinzaine of Easter. Juliana puts in her place William son of
Adam or Walter Hok.
Later, at that day, the Sheriff sends the Inquisition, which says that
Juliana never, after that the said Earl [Robert de Ferrers] had seisin
of his lands, received any wrongdoers with game (venacione) taken in
the forest of the said Earl between Ribbel and Merse without leave and
wish of the said Earl. Judgment for defendant.
