To the treasurer and the barons of the exchequer. Writ of supersedeas in respect of their demand upon William Agas of Tettebury and Thomas Somerhulle constables of Tettebury for 100s. wherein they were condemned before the king for the escape of Thomas de Corsham by them taken and in their custody for felony, and order to discharge them, the former sheriffs of Gloucester and others whatsoever, cancelling that sum upon the estreats; as the escape was assigned to John Peeke keeper of the rolls before the king for the carriage of the rolls and memoranda from Gloucester to Westminster, and the money was levied by the then sheriff and delivered to the said keeper, notwithstanding which by negligence of the writer it is sent to the exchequer among the estreats, as John de Cavendissh late chief justice certified in chancery at the king's command, and the treasurer and the barons are purposing to charge the constables therewith a second time.
