Thomas and Cristiana have acknowledged the tenement with all its appurtenances as in demesnes, homages, rents, villeinages, meadows, pastures, mills and all other things to the tenement belonging, to wit, as wholly as they ever held the tenement, to be the right of Hamon, and have rendered it to him in the same court: to hold to him and his heirs of the chief lords of that fee, by the services which to that tenement belong, for ever. And for this Hamon has granted to Thomas and Cristiana the windmill (molendinum ad ventum) of the same vill and the moiety of the whole demesne of the said tenement with the appurtenances, together with the villeins to that moiety belonging and all their sequels, excepting the capital messuage which remains to Hamon and his heirs quit, for ever: to hold to Thomas and Cristiana and their heirs of Hamon and his heirs for ever; doing therefor the service of one knight's fee; and doing therefor suit at the court of Hamon and his heirs in the same vill twice in the year, to wit, once at the next court held after the feast of St. Michael, and the second time at the next court held after Easter; and likewise doing therefor suit at the same court as often as there shall be a writ of the king to be pleaded in it, and when there shall be any thief to be judged in it, and by enforcement of the court, for all service and demand. [Warranty.] And if it happen that Thomas and Cristiana or their heirs or any other on their behalf shall hereafter produce any charters or muniments in respect of the tenement they shall be held for nought. And this concord was made in the presence of Geoffrey de Staunton and William his son who granted it. And be it known that Hamon granted for himself and his heirs that all the lands and tenements which Robert Hauteyn, his father, whose heir he is, formerly demised for terms not yet expired, shall at the end of those terms be equally divided between Hamon or his heirs and Thomas and Cristiana or their heirs. And, moreover, the services and rents issuing from the same lands and tenements shall be equally divided between Hamon and his heirs and Thomas and Cristiana and their heirs. Provided that Hamon and his heirs shall hold their moiety of the chief lords of that fee by the services which to that moiety belong, for ever; and Thomas and Cristiana and their heirs shall hold their moiety, together with the mill and the moiety of the demesne, of Hamon and his heirs by the said services, for ever.
