To the escheator in Somerset. Order to remove the king's hand and meddle no further with two cottages, 24 acres of land and 2 acres of meadow in Cosyngton; as the king has learned by inquisition, taken by Richard Stucle late escheator, that by charter produced, dated 'Nytherstowey' 8 November 6 Richard II, James Daudeley, by name of 'mon seignour James Daudeley' of Rougechastelle and Helegh, gave to William Magot and Agnes then his wife for their lives the reversion of the premises, by name of all lands, rents and services in Cosyngton by him purchased from Sir Edmund Barry chaplain, and by him previously given to Maud de Heyghworth for life, rendering to the grantor one red rose at Midsummer, that the said Maud attorned tenant to them, that she died, and after her death the said William and Agnes entered the same, and continued their estate until the said William was put in exigents, that by reason of felonies for which he was indicted the premises came to the hands of King Richard, and are yet in the king's hand, that they are held of the heir of John Brant, and that the said William died on the feast of the Invention of Holy Cross 4 Henry IV.
