We have also taken the manor of Stratford, co. Suffolk, into the king’s hand, because the same William de Kerdeston the father was seised of it in his demesne as of fee.
We have also taken the manor of Ryston into the king’s hand out of the hands of William Clere, executor of the will of Robert Clere, to whom the deceased in his lifetime conveyed the same for a term of fourteen years, for a debt owed by the said Robert to the king, as we are assured by record.

Norfolk, and the manors of Sydestern and Neuton by Brecham and lands &c. in Claxton, Carleton and Bokenhamfery, co. Norfolk, and the manors of Henam and Bulcamp, co.

It is found in the Memoranda of the king’s 41st year, among the Recorda of Michaelmas term in a process touching William Clere and Walter Clere, that William Clere, son and heir of Robert Clere, in Michaelmas term at the end of the king’s 40th year acknowledged (cognovit) that he was the executor of the will of the said Robert, and that the said Robert his father held the manor of Ryston, co. Norfolk, free of rent, by demise of one William de Kerdeston, knight, for a term of fourteen years, of which seven years were unexpired at the time of the death of the said Robert, which occurred on Wednesday before Whitsunday, 34 Edward III, and that he (William) had possession thereof from the time of the said Robert’s death. And because he acknowledged that he had for seven years after the death of Robert been in possession of the manor, in which Robert had no estate except for a term of years, so that it ought to be considered (adjudicari) as a chattel and not as a fee or freehold (liberum tenementum), thereby acknowledging himself administrator (sic cognoscendo administrationem) of the goods and chattels late of the said Robert, it was awarded that the manor should be taken into the king’s hand, and that answer should be made to the king yearly for the profits thereof during the aforesaid term in part payment of 1000 marks which the king recovered for the 1000 marks which Robert bequeathed and assigned to the king in repayment of the king’s moneys which he received and converted to his own use when he had the guardianship of the temporalities of the bishopric of Norwich in Norfolk and Suffolk (which were in the king’s hand by reason of the contempt &c. of William Bateman, late bishop), and also in repayment of the king’s moneys received by him as collector and receiver of wools granted to the king in Norfolk and Suffolk. The sheriff was therefore directed to take the said manor out of the hand of the said William into the king’s hand, and to be answerable for the issues.
It was also found in the same Memoranda of the king’s 41st year, among the commissions of Trinity term, that the king by letters patent under the seal of the Exchequer dated 13 July, 41 Edward III, committed to Joan de Mohun the custody of the manor of Ryston, extended at 35l. yearly, to hold for so long as the manor should be in the king’s hand at a yearly farm of 35l.
Writ of certiorari to the treasurer and barons of the Exchequer to examine the rolls &c. of the Exchequer and certify whether the manors of Stratford, co. Suffolk, and Ryston, co. Norfolk, are held of the king in chief or of others, and by what services. 22 April, 46 Edward III.
Certificate of the treasurer and barons. In the Book of Fees, which is kept in the Exchequer for evidence and not for record, it is found in Norfolk under the heading ‘fees of Walter son of Robert’ that Robert Baynard of Ryston holds a knight’s fee and a half in Ryston of the said Walter, and that Fulk de Kercheston holds half a knight’s fee in Ryston of the same. It is also found in the same book, in Suffolk under the heading ‘fees of the honor of Relege,’ that William de Stratford holds a knight’s fee in Stratford of the same honor, and that Robert de Alneto holds half a knight’s fee of the same honor. Moreover, it is found in the roll of particulars of the account of Nicholas de Castello and his fellows, collectors in the county of Norfolk of the aid of 40s. granted to the king in his 20th year, that they answer for 40s. for one knight’s fee in Ryston held by Avelina de Burnel and Burga de Vallibus of the heirs of Fulk Banyard, and by him of the king, and formerly held by Peter de Huntyngfeld, William de Huntyngfeld and William de Vallibus, and for 20s. for half a knight’s fee in Ryston held by Maud de Kerston of the heirs of Fulk Baynard, and by him of the king, and formerly held by William de Kerston.
