Placita at Westminster the octave of St. Martin, 3 Edw. II.
By reason of certain inquisitions returned into the Chancery and sent hither, came Alan son of Alan Plukenet, and also Alice de Everyngham, Bevis de Knovill, Maud la Brut, and Peter de Helyon and Cecily his wife. And Alan says he is next heir of John Walraund, and seeks all his lands, &c. except the manors of Salterton, Yatesbury, Wynterburn Asserton, and Derneford, in which he claims nothing because they were given in exchange for the manor of Kylpeck, 1 carucate land in Little Toynton, and the advowson of the church of Northbury, with a pasture called Kudymor, and the keepership of the forest of La Haye by Hereford, and he is of lawful age. And Alice and the others say that not he but they are the next heirs. And the inquisitions being found repugnant and varying as to the heirs, they were ordered to show in what manner they were heirs.
The said Alan says that William Walraund, grandfather of the said John, begot of Isabel his wife two sons William and Robert, and one daughter Alice (see the first pedigree above) to whom the whole right of inheritance of the said John reverted, and whose heir he is.
And the said Alice and the others say that the said William Walraund did not beget of the said Isabel any Alice, mother of Alan father of the present Alan, nor any daughter Alice except one who afterwards was abbess of Romeseye and died without issue, but the said William begot of the said Isabel three sons and five daughters (see the second pedigree above) and the whole right of inheritance of the said John reverted to Cecily his aunt, from whom sprang the said Alice and the others; and they pray that it may be enquired by the country, and Alan likewise. Therefore it is ordered to the sheriffs of cos. Southampton and Gloucester to cause jurors of the neighbourhoods of Kulmeston and Syston to come before the king on the morrow of the Purification, who say that the said William Walraund begot in matrimony of his wife Isabel the said Alice, mother of Alan Plunkenet, father of the present Alan, and aunt of the said John deceased; from which Alice the said Alan the father, and from him the present Alan were begotten in lawful matrimony; and the said William had no other issue of the said Isabel but the said William (the son), Robert, Alice, and another Alice, afterwards abbess of Romeseye; wherefore they say precisely that the said Alan is next heir of the said John Walrand. Therefore it was considered that the said Alice de Everyngham and the others take nothing by their petition, and that seisin be delivered to the said Alan; and that the manors of Salterton, Yatesbury, &c. which were in exchange for the manor of Kilpek, &c. be delivered to Ralph le Botiller, and Alexander de Frivill and Joan his wife, as next heirs of Isabel wife of the said William Walraund, according to the tenor of the fine shown in court.
