Writ 13 Feb. 1413
DEVON. Inquisition. Exeter. 25 Sept.
Long before his death he held the manor of Venn Ottery and enfeoffed Richard Forneaux in it [pardon for acquiring, CPR 1345–8, p.8]. By his charter as John Forneaux of Venn Ottery he released it with warranty to Richard on 27 July 1346. He died on 18 April 1351.

He regranted it to Richard, Margaret his wife and the heirs of their bodies with remainder to William, brother of Richard, by a charter dated at Venn Ottery on 25 Jan. 1350. Both Richard and William Forneaux died without heirs of their bodies. Margaret held the manor and married John Payn. Against them and Nicholas Baker, chaplain, Richard Dobel and Agnes his wife brought a writ of novel disseisin of their free tenure in Venn Ottery at Exeter on 24 July 1363 before John Mobray and other justices of assize. They claimed that John Payn and Margaret had disseised them of 2 parts of the manor. John and Margaret attended. Nicholas Baker did not, but John answered for him as his bailiff. John and Margaret answered as tenants in visu positorum that the assize should not stand because Richard Fourneaux, brother of Agnes, whose heir she was, held the 2 parts of the manor and enfeoffed Nicholas de Chulmeleigh by charter with warranty to him and his heirs. They sought judgment against Richard Dobel and Agnes who were judged in mercy for a false claim.
Afterwards John Payn and Margaret held the whole manor and granted it to John Dynham, knight, the father of John Dynham, knight, in exchange for holdings in Buckland Denham in Somerset. He held it and Agnes Dobel released and warranted it to him by charter dated 4 April 1372. John Dynham died seised of it. John Dynham the son still holds.
