pursuant to the King's writ, for his appearance before the
King's Justices at their next coming to the Tower, according to
the custom of the City, (fn. 9) but the said Edmund Wolmer they
could not find. (fn. 10) And inasmuch as the King desires to be
informed as to the custom of citizens appealed for death
in the City claiming to find sureties for their appearance
at the next Iter, the Mayor and Sheriffs are commanded to
appear before the King on a certain day, and Petronilla likewise. A further precept to the Sheriff to demand the above
Edmund from Husting to Husting until, &c., and if he appears

and Aldermen had not returned the writ as ordered, and were
in the contempt of the King to the extent of £1,000, and had
delayed her suit to the loss of £200, which she was prepared
to prove. The Mayor and Aldermen deny having received the
writ, and as to certifying the King on the franchise and custom
aforesaid, they cite the Charter granted to the City anno 27 Edward I., (fn. 11) and the Great Charter of liberties of England which
confirmed to the City all its ancient liberties and customs.

Roger le Brabazon and his fellow-Justices to the effect that the
citizens should be allowed to enjoy all their ancient privileges.
The "bill" dated at Wyndesore, 25 Jan., 7 Edward II.
The Mayor and Aldermen pray that the custom in question may be recorded as being one the citizens had of old
enjoyed; and the said Petronilla having been asked on
three several occasions to show cause against the City's
claim, and having answered nothing, it was adjudged that
the Mayor and Aldermen should go without a day, &c.,
