[Part of case deficient] Later on the morrow of the Exaltation of the
Holy Cross [15 September] at Lancastre in the above year come the parties
before J. de R. and W. de N. and, Margery being unable to produce the
record of the Roll of Walter de Helyun and his fellow Justices last in Eyre,
the case is proceeded with. Plaintiffs say that John de Harewode, father of
Alan, held the tenement of Margery, and committed felony by killing a man;
therefore, after the King's year etc., Robert de Haunton entered upon
the tenement on payment of fine. Defendant says that plaintiffs, after
his father's felony, put him in possession, and that he took the fealties
and services and lived in the capital house from Mid-Lent until after
the feast of S. John Baptist, when plaintiffs ejected him.
Verdict, that John father of Alan committed a felony and fled, so
that the tenement came to the King's hand; and after a year and a
day Robert made a fine with the King and was peaceably seised until
Adam de Blakeburn, John his son, Geoffrey de Bylinton and Henry de
Walleye, friends of Alan, agreed with Robert in Mid-Lent 5 Henry III
[21 March 1220-1] that Alan should have the tenement on payment of 15
marks at the Nativity of S. John Baptist following [24 June 1221], Adam
and John his son being sureties: the sureties are dead, no payments were
made, and so plaintiffs entered and seized the premises as the inheritance
of Margery. Before the Justices last in Eyre it was agreed between
the parties that Alan, with the exception of 20 acres arable and
20 acres of waste, should release all his right and claim in the said
tenement to Robert and Margery and her heirs. Margery says that
she and her husband are willing to abide by this covenant and in
addition to give Alan 5 acres of waste. The morrow of Holy Trinity
at Cliderhow appointed for delivery of Judgment.
At which time the parties attend and Alan asks adjournment to
enable him to pay Robert. Adjourned accordingly to the Octaves of

the Assize, in default of payment.

York. Plaintiff says that Robert de Knol her grandfather purchased
the tenement of one Walter de Wadington ancestor of Walter, and gave
it to William her father in marriage with Agnes her mother.
Verdict, that one Robert de Fayrstan gave the tenement to one Walter
de Wadington in marriage with one Sarra his daughter: after the death
of Walter, Sarra held it for life and after her death it came to one
Walter de Wadington son of Walter and heir of Sarra. Judgment for
defendant: plaintiff's fine remitted, she being poor.

of meadow, in Hoghwyk.

and on his death plaintiff entered, but was ejected by defendant on the
day that Gilbert was buried. Plaintiff says that Gilbert enfeoffed him
by charter produced, and that he occupied the tenement for 5 days after
Gilbert's death until ejected.
Verdict, that Gilbert died on a Saturday about 3 o'clock; and plaintiff
the same day came and wanted to take possession but was prevented
by the chief lord of that fee, who at length allowed him to enter on the
Sunday; which same day about vespers, William, as heir of Gilbert,
came and ejected him; so that it cannot precisely be said that plaintiff

recovered the 3½ acres from John, to whom she subsequently demised

Novel disseisin—The Abbot of Stanlowe v. Adam de
Hochton re common of pasture in 3 acres of moor in
Defendant says that he, as chief lord of Wytewell, appropriated the
common adjoining his capital messuage under the Statute of Merton,
and that the Abbot has ample common in 500 acres. The Abbot says
that, long before Adam held anything in Wytewelle, his church of
S. Mary of the Blessed Place of Stanlawe was enfeoffed by Adam de
Wyndewell, lord of the vill of Wytenhulle, of a piece of land called
Stanworle in Leylanchirre, and he produces his charter in these words:—
"Know &c. that I Adam de Wyndehull have given granted and by this
my present charter confirmed to Cod and the Blessed Mary and the
Abbot and Monks of the Blessed Place of Stanlowe with my body a
certain part of my land which is called Stanworthele in Leylanchirre
with all its entirety as in woods mills waters and pastures and with all
liberties to the said land belonging to have and to hold freely and
entirely in pure and perpetual alms." He produces also the confirmation
of John de Westle, who married Christian daughter and heir of the said
Adam:—"Know ye &c. that I John de Westel have granted and by this
my present charter confirmed to God and the Blessed Mary and the
Abbot and Monks of Stanlawe for the good of my soul and of my heirs
the gift which Adam de Wythenhull made to them with his body namely
Stanworthe and Grendesholes with their commons and appurtenances as
the charters of the said Adam made to them witness." Also the confirmation of one Richard de Alreton:—"I have granted and by this my
present charter confirmed to the Abbot and Convent of the Blessed Place
of Stanlawe the common of pasture belonging to the vills of Wytenhulle
and Welton to feed their animals and cattle as many as the said pasture
can sustain without contradiction and impediment of me or mine so that
neither I nor my heirs can introduce or receive any other animals or
cattle in that pasture except our own and those of our men dwelling
in the said vills." After this grant Richard de Alreton had no power
to appropriate any of the pasture or waste without leave of the Abbot
or his successors; Richard son of this Richard, enfeoffed the defendant
in the residue of his manor of Wytenhulle; and the Abbot asks how
defendant can have more right than Richard to appropriate the common,
and whether the Statute of Merton applies. Defendant says that, subsequent to the charter, Richard appropriated some of the waste, leaving
part and keeping part, and asks why he to whom the lordship was
granted should be in a worse position than Richard would be were he
still lord. The Justices, wishing to see the grant, order Adam to
produce it at Clyderhowe on the morrow of Holy Trinity.
On which day the parties appear and Adam produces his grant, by
which it appears that Richard enfeoffed him of all the lands and tenements which he held in the vill of Wytenhulle with homages, rents and
services of freemen and villeins, escheats and all other things to the manor
belonging, without exception, to hold of the chief lords etc. And Adam
repeats that Richard, after his charter to the Abbot, appropriated 100
acres of waste which he afterwards demised to the Abbot, who now
holds them: and that Richard son of Richard de Alreton demised 3 acres
of waste to Richard Banestre who built a lodge thereon and held it for
some time; so that the Abbot's charter is void. The Abbot replies that
the charter is not void; that Banestre's lodge was pulled down as soon
as its existence became known; that Banestre was compensated by Richard
son of Richard with arable land in Wytenhulle to the value of the 3
acres of waste; and that no waste was appropriated without the Abbot's
Verdict, reciting the grants, subsequent to which no waste was
appropriated without the Abbot's consent; the grantor were he living
could not appropriate it, and Adam cannot be in a better position; and
the Statute of Merton does not apply. Judgment for plaintiff. Damages 6d.

John Attehall, Alan Attehall and Richard de Stede re

William de Waleton, Richard de Hyton and Roger son
of Richard de Wlfsale re a messuage and 79 acres in
Defendants say that plaintiff enfeoffed one Juliana daughter of Adam
de Cnousle by charter produced, and she enfeoffed Henry; plaintiff says that
he was ill when the charter was made. Verdict, reciting that the Earl of
Derby gave the tenement to plaintiff, his bailiff, for his services; that, for
trespass and arrears of account, he was taken by the Earl and detained
at Liverpool whence he was removed to Tutbury, where he escaped; and,
fearing he would lose his tenement, he enfeoffed Juliana and she Henry.
