Presentment was made before the Warden and Aldermen, on the Wednesday next after the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross [14 September] in the 21st year, by three Wards, namely, by the Wards of Cornhulle, Bradstrete, and Bisshopesgate, as appears in the panel, which remains with the Chamberlain, that an earthen wall in the Parish of Saint Benedict Fynk, which belongs to William de Asshindone and Gilbert de Asshindone, is a nuisance to the King's highway in Fynkislane; (fn. 1) namely, at the top thereof, as you go towards Austin Friars, to the extent of one iron ell of our Lord the King; in the middle also, lineally, to the extent of one ell, and so lineally more or less, as far as the tenements which belonged to Walter Hauteyn, in the Parish of St. Michael on Cornhulle.
