Later it is testified in court by the serjeant that the said Agnes has nothing in London whereby she can be distrained. Therefore it is adjudged that William and Robert answer without her.








patria
Richard Heigne and Maude his wife sue against William le Taverner, chaucer, and Robert Neel, executors of the will of Robert Heigne for £55.0.12. They explain that whereas the said Robert Heigne in his life time, viz. on Wednesday before Palm Sunday, 12 Edward II [28th March, 1319], entered into a bond to pay to the said Richard and Maude the sum aforesaid on Michaelmas Day next following, in the Church of St Margaret in Fridaistrete, the executors of the said Robert refuse payment.

lex ad quindenam
John Giffard waged his law against Christina of Caunterburi concerning the charge that on Friday after Pentecost, 13 Edward II [23rd May, 1320] he assaulted the said Christina in Fletestret.
William the Chandler ['Candellator'], dwelling beside the church of St. Michael atte Corne, was attached to answer Stephen Creye in a plea of account. He complains that whereas the said William, on Monday before the feast of the
Annunciation, 12 Edward II [19th March, 1319], in the house of the said Stephen beside Candelwickstrete, received from him 51s. to trade with
on his behalf between the same Monday and Pentecost next following [27th May], rendering therefore an account, as set forth in the bond sealed with the seal of the said William, he now refuses to account to the damage of the pl. William comes and acknowledges the said writing to be his deed, and asks that his account be heard. Richard Dask, Richard of Reynham and Hamo le Barber are appointed as auditors, and a day is given the def. to account on the Saturday following.
Richard Heyne and Maude his wife, pls., appear v. Agnes relict of Robert Heyne, William le Hosiere and Robert Neel, executors of the will of the said Robert Heyne, who have a day to appear by distraint. William and Robert come, but Agnes does not. It is attested by the serjeant that Agnes has nothing in his bailiwick by which she can be distrained. It is therefore adjudged that William and Robert answer alone. The pls. complain that the defs., on Wednesday before Palm Sunday, 12 Edward II [28th March, 1319], received from them £55 and 12d. by ten tallies, to be repaid in the church of St. Margaret in Fridaistrete at the Michaelmas following; but that payment was not made during the life-time of the said Robert, or afterwards by his executors. The defs. say that the bond which the pls. produce in court is not the deed of Robert Heyne, and thereupon they put themselves upon their country.
Afterwards the parties appear at the court held by Reginald de Conduit, sheriff, on Thursday after the feast of St. Thomas the Apostle [27th December] but Richard and Maude produce a royal writ ordering the case to be referred to the Justices at their next session at the Tower ['et predicti Ricardus et Matilda tulerunt breve domini Regis ad ponendam loquelam predictam coram justiciariis ad primam assisam apud Turrim London' etc.].
