To the escheator in Kent. Order in presence of William Bealknap, Henry Bealknap and Philip Bealknap, or of their attorneys, to make a partition of 10 acres of land in Orpynton into three equal parts, and to give the said William seisin of his purparty, and to remove the king's hand from the purparties remaining, delivering up any issues thereof taken; as it is found by inquisition, taken before the escheator, that John Bealknap esquire at his death held that land of William Haute esquire in tenure of 'gavelkynde,' and that the said William, Henry and Philip are his brothers and next heirs according to the custom of such tenure; and the king has taken the homage and fealty of the said William due for two thirds of the manor of Seyntlynge in the town of 'Seyntmarycraye' which the said John held in chief as of the honour of Peverell.
