Court of Common Pleas, CP 40/638, rot. 301

Term: Trinity 1420
County: London
Writ type: Debt (bond)
Damages claimed: £20
Case type: Bond

Pleading: Parson George W., William B., and Thomas R. claim that Nicholas A. owes them £16 per a bond. Damages are claimed at £20. Bond shown in court. Noted that the bond says nothing of where it was made, but the plaintiffs say it was made at Maresfield, Sussex.

Pleading: NA comes and says that the force of the bond ought not hold, because its effect is contingent upon an indenture made by GW at London, on 07/08/1417 (the day after the making of the bond). NA presents one part of this indenture to the court. The indenture demises at farm, to NA, the rectory of the church of St Bartholomew, Maresfield, Sussex, with all tithes, oblations, incomes, and benefits of the aforesaid church by right of view (de jure spectantibus) for three years commencing Michaelmas 1417. During this time NA was not to lay waste to destruction to the rectory's buildings or trees, and was obliged to maintain the rectory's buildings etc. In payment, NA was to give GW or his attorney, in the parish church of St Margaret of Southwark by London, 12m annually in equal portions at Christmas and St John the Baptist. NA was also to cover all the costs (onera) pertaining to the church of St Bartholomew, as much ordinary and extraordinary, pertaining to the lights of the chancel, tenths granted to the king, and the provisioning of an 'honest and proper' chaplain etc. [Extensive terms also given concerning the payment of tithes in the event of the agreement terminating at certain points within the term.] And if all this should be done then the bond should be null and void. NA says that he held to these terms and seeks judgement.

Pleading: GW, WB, and TR say that according to the indenture, RA was to find and cover the costs of a suitable and honest chaplain for the celebration of mass at Maresfield. They say that for the first year RA held the rectory at farm he found a certain Robert B. to act as chaplain, but this man was a drunk, vicious, dishonest man. As a result, the parishioners of Maresfield took their case before the bishop of Chichester, who removed the chaplain RB and recalled parson GW to reside in the aforesaid church, in his own person. Hence NA did not fully keep to the terms of the indenture, and the bond should be paid.

Pleading: NA says that chaplain RB was suitable and honest, and seeks judgement.

Pleading: GW, WB, and TR say that chaplain RB was neither suitable nor honest and seek inquiry upon the country, and NA seeks likewise. Order to the sheriff to make a jury come in Michaelmas term 1420. Pledges are named for the defendant.

Postea text: postea 1 - the sheriff returns that the writ reached him too late, and so the case is forwarded to later in Michaelmas term 1420.

Postea text: 2 posteas - both say that the sheriff did not send the writ, forwarding the case as far as the octave of the Purification of St Mary (late in Hilary term 1421)

Court of Common Pleas, CP 40/638, rot. 305

Term: Trinity 1420
County: London
Writ type: Disseisin
Case type: Real action / rents / damage to real estate

Pleading: The mayor and sheriffs of the city of London have sent here record and the process of a plea held before them in the London Hustings in these words. Plea of land held in the Hustings of London on 20 May 1420. Previously in the Hustings of pleas of land, on 11 March 1420, John Barley junior and his wife Katherine, together with Henry Longley and his wife Margaret, sought a messuage with appurtenances in London, parish of St Peter Paul's Wharf in Castle Baynard ward, from bishop John Wakeryng, William Hankeford and William Werkeman. The plaintiffs state that a certain Humphrey de Walden was seised of the aforesaid messuage in his demesne as of fee, and that in his will, enrolled in the Hustings of London on 22 July 1331, he left all his property in London (as all his property in the said parish of St Peter) to his son Humphrey. If the younger HW should die without heirs, then the property should then pass to Adam W., son of the elder HW, then in turn to Alexander Walden, brother of Adam. The elder Humphrey then later died seised of the aforesaid messuage, and the younger Humphery entered into the said property, during the reign of Edward III. This Humphrey then later died without heirs, as did Adam, leaving the right of inheritance to Axexander. He also died, and the property passed to Alexander's son, also Alexander, who was seised of the messuage during the reign of Richard II. The property then passed to John Walden, brother of the younger Axexander, and then to John's son, another Alexander, and then his other son, also John. After his death, the property passed to his sisters, Katherine and Margaret (the plaintiffs).

Pleading: Bishop John Wakeryng, WH and WW defend, and call to warrant a certain Henry Perys and his wife Christine, as well as Agnes M. who was the wife of William Mullebourne, sisters and heirs of John Chitterne, concerning the aforesaid messuage.

Pleading: The plaintiffs argue that according to the custom of the city of London the aforesaid HP, CP, and AM ought not be called to warrant the defendants, because HP, CP, and AM had lands and tenements within the liberty of the city of London by which they might be summoned.

Pleading: Defendants state that HP, CP, and AM have no lands or tenements in the city of London by which they can be summoned, and seek enquiry upon the country; plaintiffs likewise. And upon this process continued from Hustings to Hustings, until this day, when parties come, and plaintiffs freely grant that the defendants might call HP, CP, and AM to warrant from outside the city. Day given between the parties before the justices of the Common Pleas at Westminster, on the morrow of St John the Baptist 1420, as this court does not have the power to send to the sheriffs of Surrey and Wiltshire. Therefore, on the said morrow of St John the Baptist, parties come, and seek writs to the sheriffs of Surrey and Wiltshire to have HP, CP and AM here at the octave of Martinmas next, to warrant the property.

Pleading: [Further information drawn from CP 40/645, rot 109] The mayor and sheriffs of London have inserted the record and the process of a plea before them in the London Hustings, in these words. Plea of land held in the Hustings of London on 26 January 1422. [Case re-entered as above, except that John Perys, son and hair of Christine Perys, is called to warrant rather than Christine Perys herself, as the previous warrant had returned that Christine Perys was dead, and returning the case to the Hustings at the octave of Michaelmas 1421. Hence the relevant new pleading is as follows...) And upon this bishop William Hankford and William Werkman call to warrant John Perys the son and heir of Christine Perys lately the wife of Henry Perys kinsman and one of the heirs of John Chitterne, and Agnes who was the wife of William Millebourne sister and other heir of the same John Chitterne, in the county of Wiltshire. Hustings does not have the power to call them, so day given in the Common Pleas at the quindene of Easter then next (1422). On that day, parties came by attorneys [names omitted] and a writ is directed to the sheriff of Wiltshire to summon JP and AM to warrant the defendants, returnable at the octave of Michaelmas 1422. Same day given to the parties.

Postea text: postea 1 - sheriffs of Surrey and Wiltshire did not send the writ, to Easter one month 1421.

Postea text: postea 2 - sheriff of Surrey returns that he instructed John Cheseman, bailiff of the liberty of Kingston upon Thames, but he did nothing. Therefore the sheriff of Surrey is again ordered to make HP, CP, and AM come, in Michaelmas term 1421, notwithstanding the liberty. The sheriff of Wiltshire did not send the writ and is again ordered to make HP, CP, and AM come, in Michaelmas term 1421

Postea text: postea 3 - the sheriff of Wiltshire returns that CP, the wife of HP, had died and therefore the parties sought can not be brought before the court. Hence, the court of Common Pleas cannot proceed any further in this case and returns the case to the next session of the Hustings for consideration before the mayor and sheriffs of London, to be held next after the feast of the Conception of the Blessed Mary, 9 Henry V.

Case notes: Case returns from the Hustings in Easter term 1422, and hence case re-entered on CP 40/645, rot 109.

Pleading: John C. claims that John S., Nicholas S., Stephen G., Robert P., Peter H., William N., William T., Simon T., John H., Edmund B., Thomas W., and Adam M. have broken the statutes of 34 and 38 Edward III against embracery. John C. says that he was involved in a plea of trespass against a certain Robert H., whereby he had claimed RH used force and arms to break his close and house at Ipswich (Suffolk), dig in his quarries and carry off stone to the value of £20. JC says that there was an inquisition held concerning this case in which JS acted as a juror and embracer, receiving from the then defendant RH, at Westminster on 30/04/1419, diverse sums of money and gifts. These sums JS distributed to the jurors as follows for the fixing of the jury, namely: to AM and SG, 10m; to TW and WN, 100s each; to EB, PH, and NS, 5m; to JH and ST, 40s; to WT 4m, and for RP and JS himself, 6m.

JS, the supposed embracer, similarly seeks judgement on the writ, saying that the present writs contains 'additions' of names and surnames which have been varied from those in the record of the original inquest.

Pleading: JC says that he can not deny these exceptions.

Postea text: The decision is that JC is to have nothing for his writ, and is in mercy for false claim. The defendants are without day.
