Roger de Mortemer of Wiggemor prays that as divers errors are to be found in the record, process and judgment passed upon Roger de Mortemer of Chirk, his uncle, whose heir he is, before Walter de Norwyz and his fellow-justices appointed by the late king for that purpose in the 16th year of his reign, the king will command the treasurer and chamberlains to produce them before the king and his council, and cause the errors to be amended. French.

By reason of these petitions the chancellor was commanded to produce the said records before the king and his council in Parliament, which he accordingly did, as follows:—

The judgment passed (pronunciacio et reddicio judicii . . . facte) upon Roger de Mortuo Mari, the uncle, and Roger, the nephew, imprisoned in the Tower, by Walter de Norwico, William de Herle, Walter de Friskeney, John de Stonore, and Hamo de Chiggewell, at Westminster, on Monday the morrow of St. Peter ad Vincula, 16 Edward II.

The king sent to the said justices letters patent dated 14 July, 16 Edward II., appointing them to meet at Westminster and pronounce judgment upon the Mortemers to be brought before them by the constable of the Tower, according to the form he is sending them sub pede sigilli:—

Judgment on Roger, the uncle, that he, the king’s justiciary in Wales, and sworn of his council, having contrary to his allegiance levied war against his sovereign lord along with Humphrey de Bohun, earl of Hereford, Roger Damary, Bartholomew de Badelesmere, John Giffard of Brymmesfeld, and Henry Tyes, and having traitorously taken the town and castle of Gloucester and feloniously plundered the king’s goods there, and having afterwards as a traitor and enemy, with his banner displayed as in war, ridden to Briggenorth, assaulted and plundered the king’s people there, killing some and wounding others, and burned the town, and with banner displayed as in war, both before and after, rode in arms destroying and robbing the king’s people. All these crimes are notorious, and the king records them against him. This court therefore awards that for these treasons he be drawn, and for the arsons, robberies and homicides he be hanged. French.

The said king further sent to the said justices the judgment to be pronounced on Roger, the nephew, mutatis mutandis. French.

By reason of the said commandment of the king, the said justices ordered the constable of the Tower to produce his said prisoners, and Roger de Swynnerton, then constable, producing them, and judgment being pronounced as aforesaid, he was ordered to execute the same.

The judgment (pronunciacio) by the same justices of the king’s grace to the said Mortimers, and of their adjudication by the same to perpetual imprisonment in the Tower, on Tuesday next after the feast of St. Peter ad Vincula in the year 16 Edward II., by virtue of letters patent dated 22 July, 16 Edward II. French.

The said justices met and pronounced judgment accordingly.

Roger, the nephew, now comes in the said Parliament, and being asked wherefor he produces the said records and processes, says because of errors therein. He is told to show any, etc., and he says there is therein manifest error, in that when any one of the king’s realm has in time of peace committed an offence in respect of the king or another, for which he should lose his life or limb, and has been brought to judgment thereupon before the justices, he ought first to be put to reason, and his answers touching the offence imputed to him should be first heard before they proceed to judgment on him. But in these records and trials it is set forth that the said Roger, both uncle and nephew, being brought before the justices, were sentenced to drawing and hanging, and were subsequently sentenced to perpetual imprisonment, without ever having been arraigned or admitted to answer the charges brought against them, which is contrary to the law and custom of the realm, etc.

He says also that in these records it is set forth that the king recorded against them that they rode in hostile manner along with Humphrey de Bohun and others against the king and his people, perpetrating divers crimes, wherefore the said judgments were passed upon them, but such a record is not for the king to make, except touching his enemies in time of war, that is to say when the king rides with banners displayed. But at that time the said king did not ride with banners displayed, nor was it a time of war, for the chancery of our lord the king and the justices of pleas of both benches were sitting to administer justice. He also says that there was an error in this, viz. that by Magna Carta “no free man may be taken, etc.,” but in the records aforesaid it is set forth that the said Mortimers were severally adjudged to be drawn and hanged, and were afterwards sentenced to be perpotually imprisoned, without lawful judgment of their peers summoned for this purpose, and contrary to the law of the land He therefore prays that the said records and processes may be viewed and examined, and for these errors revoked and annulled.

And because after examination it was found that the said Mortimers were so sentenced as aforesaid without having been admitted to answer any of the charges brought against them, and that in time of peace, when the king was not riding with banners displayed, and when the chancery of the king and the justices of each bench were sitting, and without legal judgment of their peers, which is contrary to the law and custom of England, and the tenor of the aforesaid charter, it was determined by the king that now is, and his council in full Parliament, that all the said judgments against them be for the errors aforesaid wholly annulled and revoked, and that the said Roger, the nephew, be restored to the common law, and have again his lands and tenements, and that the heir of the said Roger, the uncle, have his inheritance.
