Dec. 6. Roxburgh.

Inspeximus of the record and process of a plea at Lancaster on the octave of Trinity, 20 Edward I., before Hugh de Cressyngham, William de Ormesby, John Wogan, Master John Lovel and William de Mortuo Mari, justices in eyre, of Edward I. against the abbot of Fourneys to shew by what warrant he claimed sheriff's turn and amends for breaches of the assise of bread and ale, wreck of sea, waif, infangenetheof and free chace, in Dalton, Kyrkeby Irelygh, Penyngton, Ulverston, Aldingham, Legh and Ursewyk, in Furneys, and by what warrant he claims that he and his men of those parts are quit of common fines and amercements of counties, and suits of counties and wapentakes, that he has the right to have a market, a fair and gallows, in Dalton in Furneys, to make summons and attachments by his bailiff in Furneys. And the abbot comes and says, for the sheriff's turn, that he does not claim it but he shows a charter of Henry III., testifying that the king has inspected a grant of Stephen, sometime count of Boulogne and Mortaine, to the abbot of Furneys of the forest of Furneys and Walney (Waunegiam) with the venison there, and Dalton with the demesne land of the count in Furneys and the men and other things belonging to that land, soc and sac, tol and team, infangenetheof and all that is contained in Furneys, except the land of Michael le Flemyng; also that he has inspected confirmations of the said grant by the kings, Henry I., Henry II., Richard, and John, and that he has confirmed the same for himself and his heirs and has granted to the abbot and monks the homage and service due by the heirs of Michael le Flemyng for land which they hold in Furneys of the king for 10l., so that William Flemyng, son and heir of the said Michael, and his heirs, should answer the rent to the abbot and monks, who should pay the same at the Exchequer at Michaelmas, and that the king's sheriff or bailiffs should not enter within that land but pleas of the Crown should be attached by the king's coroner and the abbot's bailiffs to be held before the king or his justices, saving to the king amercements, chattels of fugitives and persons condemned, their lands for a year and a day and other royalties therein. Wherefore the abbot claims to execute by his bailiff the office of sheriff within Furneys as he and his predecessors time out of mind have used to do, as he will prove. He produces also a charter of king Stephen confirming the said grant made by him while he was count of Mortaine. On these charters he claims to make a turn in Furneys by his bailiff and the coroner, twice in the year, to wit, at Easter and Michaelmas.

And for the amends of breaches of the assise of bread and ale, he claims these in Dalton, of ancient time, and in all the land of Furneys, except in Aldyngham and Ulverston, wherein William de Caunlefeld, if he or his bailiff come into the abbot's court and petition for a court for his own tenants in Aldyngham, and John de Lancastre, if he or his bailiff do the like for his tenants in Ulverstone, these have the amends, but if they do not come, the abbot takes them, as king Stephen did.

And for wreck of sea, this he claims of ancient time in Furneys by the sea except in the manor of Aldyngham. And by the said charter of Henry III. he claims waif and infangenetheof in Furneys except in Aldyngham and Ulverstone. He claims also free chace in his demesne land in Furneys and a market and gallows in Dalton, as of ancient time ; and a fair there, on the eve, the feast, and the morrow of St. Edward, King and Confessor, by a charter of 30 Henry III. In like manner he claims to make summons and attachments by his bailiff in Furneys, to be executed by his bailiff and the king's coroners.

And William Inge, who sues for the king, says that the king is seised of the making of the sheriff's turn by the coroner of the county, who fixes a day twice in the year for the bailiff of the abbot to summon the tenants, and at the turn administers the oath and carries away the inquisitions with him. And for the amends of breaches of the assise of bread and ale, he says that the abbot hath not pillory or tumbrel, save in Dalton, whereby he can do justice for any trespass : that where he has market and fair the abbot ought not to take the amends except on the day of such market or fair and then for the whole year. Also that he amerces persons convicted of trespasses against the assise, twice, thrice, four times or more not doing due and accustomed justice on them, as he will prove. And for the other liberties claimed by the abbot, let the jury decide.

And the jurors say that no sheriff used to make a turn within Furneys before the time of Henry III., but when one Matthew de Rademan, sometime sheriff, began to make sheriff's turn twice a year, according to the custom of the realm, at the same time the coroner of the county, who by the charter ought to act as coroner in Furneys, began to hold a turn there in this form: he commanded the abbot's bailiff twice a year to summon the tenants to the turn before the coroner as the latter should appoint. And the coroner takes away the books, articles and rolls and makes the turn as the sheriff does in the gildable (gilgabili) of the county and without special warrant. And from that time, each coroner takes the esplees and profits thereof for the king. And for the amends of breaches of the assise of bread and ale, they say that the abbot and his predecessors have used such liberty without interruption as he claims. And being asked in what manner trespassers against the assise are punished when convicted more than once, they say by amercement (per misericordiam) and fine and not by judicial methods (per judicialia). They say also that the abbot and his predecessors have had wreck of sea and infangenetheof quit of suit of county and wapentake ; that he ought not to be quit of common fines and amercements, and in the last eyre he contributed 20l. to the common fine; and that the abbots have used the liberties now claimed in Dalton ever since the grant of the aforesaid charter. Being asked when the coroners began the turn within Furneys, for whose use and to whom they have answered, they say that they began these about forty-four years ago, for the king's use, but that they have not answered for them to any one. The turn is worth yearly half a mark, and William de Tunstall should answer this for four years; Thomas Travers should answer for one year ; John Gentil should answer for three quarters of a year, and Roger de Croft should answer for two years, as having been coroners. Afterwards, on the octave of St. John the Baptist, at York, 21 Edward I., the abbot comes by his attorney and because he claims to make the turn by his bailiff, by view of the king's coroner, and the jurors have found that the coroners from the time the turn has been made have made it for the king's use, it is adjudged that the turn remain to the king and the coroner answer for it at the Exchequer; that the abbot be in mercy for his false claim to be quit of common fines and amercements and that for the present judgement be for him as to the other liberties claimed; and exemplification of the record for greater publicity thereof.

Inspeximus, at the request of Robert de Valoygnes, prebendary of Warthull, in the church of St. Peter, York, and John Giffard, prebendary of Grendale, in the same church, of the record and process of a plea in the court of King's Bench at York in Michaelmas Term 8 Edward III., roll 30, Devon to wit. John abbot of Newenham in mercy for several defaults. The abbot is attached to answer the king touching a plea wherefore he, when the king had recovered against one of his predecessors the right to present to the church of Axministre and the abbot had afterwards before him and the council made a release for him and his successors of any right he might have in the advowson and cancelled with his own hand a charter of Edward I. which he had produced in support of his claim to the church, but which was found to be dated before the delivery of the judgement whereby the king recovered his right to present, and for that release and surrender of his charter had received 200 marks, not having regard to the acts of his predecessors had procured an exemplification of the cancelled charter by a false suggestion in the chancery that the original had been accidentally lost, and caused the prebendaries of Grendale and Warthill, to whom the said church had been granted by former kings in time before memory and restored by Edward I. after such recovery as aforesaid, to be impleaded in the court of the Bench touching the advowson of the church. In view of these devices to deceive the court and render the judgement previously delivered of none effect, Edward III. commanded the abbot to be in person before him in his Chancery with the exemplification of the charter on the morrow of the Ascension in the seventh year of the reign to abide such sentence as the king and council should make, and to bring the king's writ with him. At which day, John the abbot came not himself nor did he send the charter or return the writ. Whereupon the king by Adam de Fyncham who sues for him says that the writ was delivered to the abbot on Thursday in Easter Week, 7 Edward III., in the chapel of All Saints, Honiton, co. Devon, in the presence of Masters John de Nassyngton, William de Nassyngton, William de Crouthorne, Richard Giffard, and Philip de Tanesovere, William de Clive and others, and that he had disobeyed it in contempt of the king 1000l., and this he will prove. And upon this he produces the record and process of the plea whereby Edward I. recovered the advowson [see Patent Roll, 7 Edward III., part 1, membrane 5]. And the abbot by John de Penstan, his attorney, comes and defends the fraud and contempt and says that, whereas in the record it is contained that Edward I. recovered the right to the church, yet by the same record it is apparent that by the charter the right which the king had accrued to the then abbot and his successors and the judgement then given ought not to prejudice the present abbot. He says also that one Richard de Cicestre, sometime abbot of Newenham, quitted his office and became apostate, carrying away the common seal of the abbey, the said charter of Edward I., and other muniments, and that it was this Richard who cancelled the charter at the time when Richard de Pederton was abbot of the house. Wherefore the abbot cannot be certain that it was cancelled by any process or judgement and was bound to maintain it with his utmost ability as belonging to the right of his house. And he asks the judgement of the court whether the king can impute deception to him in that he procured and exemplification being wholly ignorant of its cancellation by Richard de Cicestre when apostate. And for his disobedience of the writ commanding him to bring the exemplification into the Chancery, he says that no such writ reached him, as he will prove.

And the said Adam de Fyncham says that in the said record and process it is contained that Edward I. in his court by an inquisition taken in place of the great assise, by a writ of right recovered against the then abbot of Newenham the advowson of the church quit of the abbot and convent of Newenham for ever, whereby any right of the abbey therein was extinguished and accrued to the king. Afterwards pursuant to the judgement the sheriff was commanded to summon the then abbot before the king a fortnight after Midsummer to shew cause why the king should not have his presentation. And the abbot came and alleged that the king after the recovery granted the church by charter to a predecessor of his but on comparing the dates of the charter and the judgement, it was found that the charter was made before the judgement. Wherefore Master John de Craucombe was commanded to sue out execution of the judgement. And afterwards the abbot made the release and cancellation as aforesaid, and for his surrender of the bills, writings, and muniments which he had relating to the matter, and for the removal of a clerk whom he had presented to the church, William de Hamelton and Master John de Craucombe, prebendaries of the said prebends, acknowledged that they owed the abbot 200 marks, the receipt whereof Richard de Petherton, then abbot, and Ralph de Shapwyk, one of the monks, acknowledged in court before G. de Thorneton and Master John Lovel in the octave of the Purification, 22 Edward I., who recognised that the sum was paid for the surrender and cancellation by the predecessor of the said Richard. The judgement of the court is given against the abbot as to the fraud and that the charter is null and void.

Afterwards in the same term the abbot came by John de Coliford and Walter Hone his fellow monk, and produced the said exemplification of the charter of 28 April, 5 Edward I., made under date of 8 October, 5 Edward III., pleading that, as he himself is so broken by age and infirmity that he cannot leave the abbey without danger to his life, these may be admitted to make fine for the fraud. And they are permitted to do so by a fine of 40s. as appears by the Fine Roll of that term. And afterwards in the same term the justices by the king's command sent the tenor of the said record and process with the charter into the Chancery.

Vacated because otherwise in the ninth year.

June 15.

Form of an agreement made between the king and the prior of the Hospital of St. John of Jerusalem in England to settle controversies touching liberties used by the latter in the waste land in the forest of Cressy long depending in the courts of the king of France, between the king's proctor in Ponthieu and the proctors of the Hospital there, to the following effect:

The warrens in the forest, whether within the forest or without, are to be in the king and his successors, as counts of Ponthieu, who shall have power to arrest all trespassers therein, but the religious of the Hospital shall be permitted to course without the forest, taking nothing within it.

Also, whereas the said religious have forbidden the king's men to make hedges in the woods of the house called ' Forest Labbeye,' which were sometime of the Knights Templars, and are now held by them, it is agreed that his men and ministers may cut down all manner of wood, except the saplings (les estalons), and make hedges thereof in the woods and have rights of warren there, only in making such hedges they are to do no damage to the religious on pain of punishment by the seneschal.

Also, whereas the religious have refused to allow merchants and others taking timber in the forest to pass, it is agreed that in 'Forest Labbeye' there shall be six ways for carts, whereof two are ancient ways, and the others are to be made, whereby they shall pass without hindrance, such roads to be repaired at the charges of the merchants by compulsion of the king's ministers. Any timber taken by other ways than these may be seized by the religious for their damages.

Also, in respect of discords raised by the jurisdiction of the manors of Byanvoir, Forest Labbeye, Bellaneval and Ichelm, called Temple by Wabbem, which the Knights Templars held and now are in the Hospital, it is agreed that all lordship and jurisdiction there, high, mesne and low, are and shall be in the religious throughout the said manors, the bounds whereof are to be settled by agreement between the ministers of the king and of the religious, within which the latter may imprison and hold to justice or the hurdle trespassers, as the Templars did, only they shall surrender any of the king's men taken in their jurisdiction when required to do so by him. The repair of the high roads to the demesne lands and fees of the religious shall be in the king where such are not within the terriers of the said manors.

In other lands and woods of the hospital and the mill called 'Forest Labbeye,' the king shall have the high jurisdiction, the religious the mesne and low, saving the king's rights.

For the justice in the places belonging to the commandery of Saint Manvill, to wit, Hokamcourt, Neelle hospital and Broecourt, and the justice of the place called ' La Couture Hendebourgh',' it is agreed as in the case of Forest Labbeye, Byanvoir and the others. Also for the high justice of the manor in the parish of St. Giles's, Abbeville, now of Master Matthew Gande, that shall be in the religious; and where complaint is made by the religious that the sheriff of Loy, in the county of Ponthieu, arrests their men, it is agreed that he shall do so no more.
