|Proof of age. Thursday after St. Mark the Evangelist, 1 Edw. I.|
Nicholas de Hanrede, knight, says the said Fulk will be 22 on the day of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross next, for in king Henry's 34th year he was sheriff of Berks, and on Wednesday after the said feast he was at Wanetinge in the house of Fulk, the said Fulk's father, when news came that his wife had borne him a son, who was this Fulk, for he had no other.
Geoffrey de Wauncy, knight, agrees from the common relation of the country, and of his father Geoffrey, who at Michaelmas after that feast took a farm near Wanetinge for a term of twenty-two years, which will end on Michaelmas day next.
Robert de Whytefeud, knight, believes him to be about 22, for nearly twenty-two years ago he was in the house of Ralph le Botiller at Wemme, where a great number of knights and ladies had been invited, and it was then said that the said Fulk's mother was not there because she was pregnant.
Peter de Grave says the same, for there was discord between him and Fulk father of this Fulk, which was accorded at Wanetinge, and then came news of the birth of this Fulk, and the father and friends were much congratulated because all his other children pueri) were girls.

Richard de Pavelly says the same, for eight days before the Nativity of the Blessed Mary twenty-two years ago, he came from the Holy Land, when a year before Louis king of France was taken by the enemies of the Cross of Christ at Damietta in the Holy Land, and on the feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross within a fortnight of his return he was at Waneting when news came of the said Fulk's birth; and Emma his mother died on the feast of St. Andrew next following that feast.
John de Budyford says the same, for Margery his mother died on the feast of the Translation of St. Thomas the Martyr twenty-two years ago, and at the feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross following he was at Bristol when news came of the said Fulk's birth; and his father Jordan had the manor of Hauekesbiri near that of Aleweston of the said Fulk's father, and was his counsellor.
Bartholomew de Erleye says the same, for at Easter twenty-one years ago died Giles de Erleye his father, and on the feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross preceding he was with him when news came of the birth of the said Fulk.
Henry de Gopshull agrees, for Sarah de Grave his grandmother died on the feast of St. Faith twenty-two years ago, and he received her inheritance; and on Wednesday after the Exaltation of the Holy Cross he was at Wanetinge when news of the birth of the said Fulk came to him through William Pymor the father's messenger.
Walter son of Henry le Clerc of Waneting agrees, for he married his wife from the chamber of William earl of Ferrers, and had a daughter born twenty-two years ago, three days before the said Fulk was born at Whitington, as the said William Pymor related to him.
