Court of Common Pleas, CP 40/752, rot. 104

Term: Hilary 1449
County: Kent
Writ type: Trespass (force and arms)
Damages claimed: 100m
Damages awarded: 100s
Costs: 5m
Case type: Housebreaking; Sale of goods; Taking of goods

Pleading: Richard Lovelas states that on 14 November 1447 John Rokley and William Torkesey forcibly broke his close at Kingsdown and cut down and carried away 50 oak trees to the value of £30, against the peace and to his damage of 100m.

Pleading: JR and WT granted licence to imparl to quindene of Easter. Pledges named (3 only).

Pleading: [continued at Hilary 1450, rot 390] JR and WT deny force and arms; parties on country. Concerning the rest, the defendants, not acknowledging that the trees were worth as much as claimed in the writ, state that RL ought not maintain his action, as by an indenture which they show in court, dated at Kingsdown on 20 February 1443, RL sold to them all his wood and underwood growing at his land called the 'Risshet behind the water', and in the adjacent wood called the 'Hengyng wood behind Risshet and Claperhille' and in two crofts next to the aforesaid 'Claperhill', and in 'Hoggerowe' in the aforesaid croft in the parish of Kingsdown, together with all his wood in a certain place called 'Shawe' in Maplescombe, next to the place of a certain William Guatte in the parish of Maplescombe, excepting and reserving to RL 500 trees for building materials called 'rafterware' at 'Russhewode' and 100 trees in 'Shawe', having, holding, occupying, cutting and carrying away this timber at the seasonable times of year, with free entry and exit to those places from the king's highways from the feast of Carniprivium next for 5 years. He was also to provide wood for 5000 'talwodes' and 4500 faggots, and also to demise to the plaintiffs a house for a stable next to the pound there sufficient for 10 horses, and a place to store necessities, and hay and oats for the horses, and a building for their carts throughout this term. For this, the plaintiffs were to pay him £30, payable in three instalments, as is contained in the triple indenture made between them. Under the agreement, RL was bound to the plaintiffs in £50, on the conditions given in the indenture, that if he abided by the terms of this lease, then the bond shall be cancelled. By virtue of this sale, they entered the close during this period and cut down and carried off trees and underwood, as was right.

Pleading: RL states that whereas the agreement stated that RL sold the wood in the places mentioned in Kingsdown and Maplescombe, excepting the 500 trees, etc, on the day concerned JR and WT entered the close and cut down the 500 trees which were reserved to him in the place called 'Russhetwode', against the form of the agreement, and it is this action on which he brings the suit.

Pleading: JR and WT sold him this wood as stated, and they thus entered the close and cut down the wood according to the terms of the agreement, and not that they were cutting down the reserved 500 trees, as claimed by RL.

Pleading: RL repeats that JR and WT did cut down the reserved trees as he claimed. Enquiry by country, jury here at Easter five weeks. Same pledges named (plus Broun, missing from earlier pleading).

Postea text: 3 further licences to imparl, to octave of Hilary 1450.

Postea text: [on CP 40/756, rot 330] Process continued, jury in respite to Easter three weeks 1454. Parties come, jury says that JR and WT are guilty of taking 300 of the 500 reserved trees, but not the other 200. Damages assigned to RL at 100s, costs of 5m. Order that RL recover damages, defendants to be taken. RL also amerced for false claim on the other 200 trees, defendants quit.

Postea text: Parties come, defendants make satisfaction of debt and damages, and are quit. They also seek to make fine, allowed for 6s 8d, by pledge of Thomas Torald and John Whitfeld.

Writ type: Trespass (against statute)
Damages claimed: £100
Case type: Breach of Statute; Real action / rents / damage to real estate

Pleading: Henry Fylongley and John Yngowe, citing the terms of the 1429 statute relating to forcible entries and the use of an assize of novel disseisin or writ of trespass against those making such entries [Stat. Realm, 8 Henry VI, c.9], state that on 10 July 1448 John Tewkesbury forcibly expelled them with 12 men-at-arms from a messuage and 5 acres of land in Leigh-on-Sea, and forcibly still holds this against them, in contempt of the king, against the statute and to their damage of £100.

Pleading: JT states that long before the alleged trespass, a certain John Chircheman and Walter Sybyll were seised of this property in their demesne as of fee, and they enfeoffed it to a certain John Eccleshale and his wife Agnes and the heirs of JE, by virtue of which JE was seised as of fee and AE as of free tenement. JE died, and AE held in free tenement, and the reversion of this land descended to Agnes, wife of JT, as daughter and heir of JE. AE then died, following which HF and JY claimed the property by virtue of a certain charter of enfeoffment made to them and their heirs by JE, even though none of this property should have passed to them, and JT and Agnes thus recently peacefully entered possession, and did not disseise the plaintiffs as claimed.

Pleading: HF and JY, not acknowledging anything said by JT, state that a certain John Taillour and Richard Garford were seised of this property in their demesne as of fee, and they enfeoffed HF and JY and the heirs of JY, by virtue of which they held this property, JY in his demesne as of fee and HF as of free tenement, until they were expelled and disseised by forcible hand by JT, as claimed above. They seek judgment and damages.

Pleading: JT repeats that JC and WS enfeoffed the property to JE and AE as claimed. Parties on country, jury here at quindene of Easter.

Pleading: William Norhampton and John Norhampton state that on 20 September 1444 John Davy forcibly took and carried off a certain indented charter, made between Master John Hermesthorp, master or keeper of the Hospital of St Katherine by the Tower and the brothers and sisters of that hospital on the one part, and William de Norhampton, father of the plaintiffs, on the other. This charter, dated in the chapter house of that hospital on 4 June 1400, states that the keeper, brothers and sisters demised at farm to WN senior a house with adjacent garden and other appurtenances within the close of that hospital, namely between the house of John Sussex to the south and the furthest ditch to the north, and extending in length to the street leading to the furthest bridge to the west, and the garden of the master, brothers and sisters to the east, containing in width in the western part 2 perches and 8 feet, and in the eastern part 4 perches and 6 feet, and in length 16 perches, each perch having 16 feet. This was to be held with free entry and exit through the great gate of the hospital towards the Thames, by WN and his heirs, etc, from the Nativity of St John the Baptist next for 60 years, at an annual rent of one rose. They also granted that WN and his successors may bring whatever they wish to the property through the main gate, and may erect sufficient fences at their own costs to enclose the area, for their greater security. WN and his heirs etc were to keep the property in good repair against wind and rain, at their own expense, and were not to bring into the property any dishonest people, such as common robbers and prostitutes, and the master, etc, would warranty the property to them. Later, WN, by his will dated 5 January 1401, left this charter and his status in this property to his two sons, and made John Sussex and John Drax his executors. After his death, the charter came into the possession of these executors on 20 January 1401, and on 10 June 1402 it was delivered to the plaintiffs, and they possessed it until 20 September 1444, when John Davy took it, against the peace and to their damage of 200m.

Term: Hilary 1449
County: London
Writ type: Trespass (against statute)
Damages claimed: £100
Case type: Abduction; Breach of Statute; Imprisonment; Maintenance

Pleading: John Grove and Thomas Bele, citing the terms of the statute against the illegal maintenance of suits, state that William Okebourne, in the parish of St Augustine, London [no date given], illegally maintained the suit of Richard Mounford against them, in a pleading before the justices of the bench between RM and the plaintiffs, Thomas Clarendon, Richard Hereward, Robert Hereward, John Turbut, William Leche, Simon Snyband, John Belham, Thomas Jemes and John Madok, where RM claimed that the others, by conspiracy between them at Colshull, falsely accused him of abducting and imprisoning Cecily, wife of Adam Dyer, at Chipping Campden on 14 November 1445, for which he was falsely imprisoned in the king's prison at Gloucester until he was acquitted before the king's justices of gaol delivery, John Edward and John Beaufitz and their fellows. This was against the form of the statute and to his damage of £100.

Pleading: WO states that he is, and on the day of the original writ was, a servant of John, Archbishop of Canterbury, the chancellor, and thus should not be summoned against his will to appear in any secular court except the chancery. He shows in court a writ of supersedes from the king directed to the justices [recited in full], dated 6 February 1449, citing the privileges of clerks of the king's chancery, and ordering that this process cease and that the plaintiffs bring the case in Chancery if they wish.

Pleading: JG and TB state that their case ought not be removed, as WO is a churchman of the parish of St Augustine, Farringdon Within ward, London, and neither on the date of the original writ, namely 14 October 1448, or afterwards was he ever a servant of the chancellor.

Pleading: WO repeats that he was a servant of the Chancery, namely at Alvechurch in Worcestershire. Parties on country. Since the justices wish to be advised as to which county to try this, case adjourned to quindene of Easter.
