atte Lane, and Adam Gilberd hold the alders on one side of the road, and
Robert Knyght and William le Wyse on the other side; and the said
Nicholas and the others being present in Court, were questioned on the

remove the alders, and if they did not do so, the Sheriff was to make the

not been cleared of underwood according to the Statute. The Prior was therefore summoned before the Justices, and did not appear; and the Sheriff was
ordered to distrain and produce him at Brome on the Vigil of the Nativity of
St. John the Baptist; on which day the Prior appeared and stated that no
