The common pleas of the county of Middlesex are summoned to be at the Stone Cross of la Straund on Tuesday after the octaves of the Purification before those whom the king shall appoint to be justices.
The form of writ is contained in the Patent Roll of the 23rd year.
This is the form of the writ patent sent to the king on behalf of the abbot and convent of Bec.
To H. king of England &c., his lord, H. abbot of Bec and the convent of the same place. As it frequently happens that they are fraudulently drawn into a plea before the king or the king's justices or other bailiffs touching lands and possessions in England, in order that by their default, the possessions or lands sued against them may be more easily recovered, or money extorted from them, because, partly by the dangers of the ways, weakness of body, short summons, or lacking the special licence of the king of France, which in these times can be obtained scarcely or only with great difficulty, to defend their lands and possessions or sue their right against others, they are not able to get to England, they have appointed William, their monk, the bearer, as their proctor to win or lose in all pleas affecting their house in England, for five years, and they will ratify whatever is ordered to be done by judgment of the king's court, so that if the said W. lose any lands or possessions, by judgment of the king's court, they will never, according to the custom of the realm, claim any right therein. May it, therefore, please the king to admit the said W. as their proctor and to cause his justices and other bailiffs to admit him, and they will ever pray to God and Jesus Christ to grant him in this life happiness and in the life to come blessedness.
