LONDON. Inq. 3 July, 21 Edw. I.

Writ (ad melius inquirendum), no mention being made in the previous inquisition of whom the houses and rents abovesaid were held, 21 July, 21 Edw. I.
Answer by the escheator that whereas it is asserted in the writ that King Henry III granted the tenements abovesaid by charter to the said Henry, it seems to him that it was not for him to enquire of whom they were held, when the king by his writ testifies that they are now held of the king, and this ought to be contained in King Henry’s charter.
