Buterwik. A toft and 10a. land and meadow, now in the king’s hand by reason of her idiocy, are held of Alan de Poynton by service of 4s. 4d. yearly.
Her kinsman, Gilbert son of Laurence de Buterwik, aged 24 and more, is her next heir of these lands.
Swynesheved. Two tofts and a wind-mill, now similarly in the king’s hand, are held of the abbot of Swynesheved by service of 3s. yearly; which ought to revert to Richard Rousyng of Swynesheved, because his grandfather Richard Rousyng gave them to John son of Gilbert de Pyncebek in free marriage with his daughter Juliana to hold to them and the heirs of the said Juliana, whose daughter the said Juetta died without heir of herself.
The said Richard is kinsman and heir of Richard the donor, and aged 30 and more.
