FINAL CONCORDS

FOR THE COUNTY OF LINCOLN

Case 130, File 31: 29 Henry III

No. 1. This is the Final Concord made in the court of the lord the King at Nottingham in eight days of the apostles Peter and Paul in the 29th year of the reign of King Henry, son of King John [6 July, 1245], before Norman de Arcy, Roger de Thurkelby, Henry de Bretton and Gilbert de Preston, justices itinerant, and other faithful men of the lord the king then present there.

Between Gunnora de Sechevill, querent, and Gilbert de Gaunt, touching this, that Gunnora complained that Gilbert has not observed a fine made to her in the court of the lord king, before the justices at Westminster, between Ralph de Sechevill and the said Gunnora, querents, and Gilbert de Gaunt, father of the said Gilbert, impedient, of 5 carucates of land, 3 bovates and 2 acres of land, 69½ tofts and the fourth part of 1 toft in Barthon, and of the service of the fee of 3 knights, with the appurtenances, in Barthon, Feriby, Thorp' and Brandon; and whereupon Gunnora complained that Gilbert demanded toll of each tenant of Gunnora in the said vill according to the use of foreign merchants; and that each tenant of Gunnora should do suit at Gilbert's mill in the same vill; and that Gunnora could not build mills upon her land in the vill of Barthon, nor have suit of her men at the same mills; and that each tenant of Gunnora should give sheriff's aid and view of frank pledge; and that neither Gunnora nor her men could carry their corn and hay without Gilbert's leave; and that if it should befall that any thief should be taken by Gilbert or his men, Gunnora's men should guard the same thief together with the township (villala); and that all Gunnora's tenants should do suit at Gilbert's next court at Barthon after the feast of St. Michael by reason of any toll which Gilbert was used to receive of Gunnora's men.

Whereupon a plea of fine made was summoned between them in the same court, to wit, that, Gilbert has granted for himself and his heirs that Gunnora and her heirs shall build mills in the same vill of Barthon wherever they will in a fit place upon their land; and have suit of their own men at the same mills. Gilbert has also granted for himself and his heirs that they shall not henceforth demand of Gunnora or her heirs or her men sheriff's aid or view of frank pledge, except two pence only in respect of each bovate of land at the feast of St. Michael as they were used to be rendered in the time of Gilbert de Gaunt, the father of Gunnora; or suit of court of the men of Gunnora or her heirs at the court of himself or his heirs by reason of any toll.

And for this grant Gunnora has granted for herself and her heirs, as much as belongs to them, that Gilbert and his heirs shall have toll of 59 tofts and the fourth part of one toft which Gunnora and her men hold in burgage in the same vill; so, to wit, that every one who shall hold any one of these tofts in chief with his household, which shall be of his domestic service (manupastu), shall be quit of toll and stallage in water and market-place for 4d. to be rendered yearly to Gilbert or his heirs, that is to say, at the feast of St. Michael 1d., at the nativity of our Lord 1d., at Easter 1d., and at the feast of St. Botulph 1d. If, however, any one of those holding the said tofts in chief shall have received any others into his aforesaid tofts who shall not be of his domestic service, they shall give toll and stallage in water and market-place according to the custom of foreign merchants. If, however, there shall be any waste of the said 59 tofts so that no man shall dwell in one of them, no toll shall be given therefor as long as it shall be waste. Gunnora has also granted for herself and her heirs that if any thief shall be taken in the fee of herself or her heirs by her or her heirs or her men, he shall be kept by her or her heirs or her men until the next court of Gilbert or his heirs which shall sit in the vill of Barthon, provided, nevertheless, that the said court shall sit within 3 weeks after the taking of the said thief. And if it happen that Gilbert or his heirs are then unwilling to receive the thief, it shall be lawful for Gunnora and her heirs to deliver him to the bailiffs of the lord the king without gainsaying of Gilbert or his heirs.

And for this grant Gilbert has granted for himself and his heirs that if any thief shall be taken in the fee of himself or his heirs or in another fee by Gilbert or his heirs or his men, he shall be kept by Gilbert or his heirs or his men; and if the thief shall escape neither Gunnora nor her heirs nor her men shall answer for that escape. And Gunnora and her heirs and her men shall answer for an escape in respect of her own fee.

Gilbert has also granted for himself and his heirs that Gunnora and her heirs shall carry their corn and hay in the said vill of Barthon, which shall be of her demesne, whenever they will, as Gilbert de Gaunt her father could carry them when he held that demesne in his hand.

And be it known that all the articles contained in a chirograph formerly made (fn. 1) between Gilbert de Gaunt, father of the said Gilbert de Gaunt, and Ralph de Secheuill, formerly the husband of Gunnora, and the said Gunnora, shall wholly stand, unless they are contrary to any articles contained in this chirograph.

Footnotes

1 3 February, 1238–9 (F.C., i, pp. 300–1).
2 —2 By a later hand.
3 Possibly 'Stallingborough' is intended. Philip de Arcy alias Darci died seised of land and rent in Stallingborough, 48 Henry III (Cal. Inq. p.m., i, p. 180.)
4 William de Cantilupe alias de Kalna died 25 September, 1254, seised of the manor of Caleston, co. Wilts, and George de Cantilupe [his son] was his heir (Calendar of Inquisitions Post Mortem, 8vo, i, pp. 85, 92, 296). George de Cantilupe died 18 October, 1273, seised of the manor of Caleston, including the gardens of Calston and Blakelond, I Edward I (ibid., ii, 16, 17). So far, no place named 'Blakelond' has been found in co. Lincoln; but it is by no means improbable that the document refers to that county; for (1) the concord was made at Lincoln; (2) it is entitled 'Lincoln' at the foot; (3) Laurence, rector of Bigby, co. Lincoln (cp. L.R.S., xi, p. 72), was Cantilupe's attorney; (4) 'Blakelond' is not a distinctive name; (5) William de Cantilupe, father of the William named above and, probably, the querent in this concord, had property in co. Lincoln (F.C., i, pp. 103, 291).
