an idiot at or before the date of the deed of Richard Ponte and herself, or when she became an idiot or after had aught in the said messuage or any parcel thereof, as he is ready to prove, and that the deeds so enrolled according to the custom of the said city are as valid in law as a fine levied at the common law, praying that those letters patent be revoked in regard to the same, and that restitution be made him, the king ordered the late sheriffs to give notice to the said Agnes and Thomas Bradewas jointly and to John Crosseby and Philip severally, to be in chancery at a day now past in order to shew cause wherefore that ought not to be done, and shewing that those sheriffs returned that they gave notice accordingly by John Bryd 'vynter' and John Sebryght, that the cause being after sent for debate before the king, the petitioner appeared in person and the respondents by William Scalby their attorney, and produced the said letters patent, severally alleging that by virtue thereof they had the keeping of the said Joan and the lands aforesaid so long as the same should remain in the king's hand, craving aid of the king, wherefore they took it that the court would not proceed without advising the king, and that the justices have deferred to proceed.
