Whereupon came Walter Thovy and put a claim on the probate, saying that the testator could not do this, inasmuch as the said Walter was impleaded in the King's Court concerning certain lands and tenements which the testator sold to him by deed, in which plea the said Walter had vouched to warranty the said Roger, who warranted, and the plea is pending, so that after the decease of the said Roger it will be necessary to call his heir; and the said Walter says, as above, that the tenements which the testator held at the time of vouching to warranty cannot be aliened, nor can he release himself nor his heirs from the warranty to the disherison of the said Walter. Accordingly probate of the will is admitted as valid saving the claim aforesaid.
