Fragment of jury panel.
KENT. Inq. taken before the commissioners at Derteford, Wednesday after St. Mark, 35 Edward III.
He held no lands &c. in Kent at the time of his death, but before his death he gave by charter all his lands &c. in Derteford, Stone and Wylmynton to William Claptus, John Byllok and John Whitlok, in fee, who after his death enfeoffed his sons John, Thomas, William and Edward thereof. William died a minor. John demised his share to John Costantyn, citizen of London, for a term of years, no division of the premises having been made between him and his brothers. John Costantyn thereupon seized the wardship of John, Thomas and Edward as next friend of the blood of Idonea, his wife, to whom no right could descend by inheritance, alleging that the tenements were gavelkind, whereas he could claim no right on this account because the premises did not descend by inheritance but by the feoffment.
Thomas, while under the age of 15 years, enfeoffed John Costantyn of his share, no division having been made, on condition that John should render to him yearly for life 10 marks and a gown, and make him his apprentice draper according to the custom of the city of London. John Costantyn never paid Thomas the said rent and would not make him his apprentice, but maliciously prosecuted him and his brothers John and Edward on a writ of trespass in the King’s Bench, so that they were put in exigent in the city of London and outlawed in the husting there on Monday after the Conception of the Virgin Mary, 33 Edward III. This was to exclude them from any action against him concerning the premises. To avoid his malice the said John, Thomas and Edward left England.
John and Thomas are now dead and Edward survives.
William de Hatton, escheator, seized a third part of the premises into the king’s hand by reason of the outlawry. Whether the king ought to answer for this part the jury know not.
The premises are held of divers lords, to wit, some of the earl of Pembroke, a minor in the king’s wardship, and some of Thomas de Grandissono, knight. But whether the king or the said Thomas is the true chief lord the jurors know not, because the rent which the said Thomas holds in the aforesaid towns belonged in the time of king Edward the king’s grandfather to the crown of England, and was given by that king to the ancestors of the said Thomas to be received from certain lands &c. in Derteford and Wylmyntone in exchange for lands &c. in Ihamme and Idenne by Wynchelse. Others of the premises are held of the bishop of Rochester, but whether the king or the bishop is chief lord the jurors know not; and others of divers other lords by gavelkind services.
One Nicholas atte Welle, by pretext of a recognizance made to him by John Costantyn in the king’s court, sued execution of the tenements aforesaid, by virtue of which execution the said Nicholas and John, his son, have been in possession of the premises since the aforesaid outlawry.
