Adam answers for all and, as to 20 acres, says that he holds the tenement wherein Agnes claims common of pasture by the law of England of the inheritance of one Elizabeth late his wife; that he and the said Elizabeth with Robert de Risselley and Ellen his wife and Thomas de Hyndeley and Jennet his wife are joint chief lords of the vill of Kilchith and approved their waste (where Agnes claims common) by mutual consent; and that the 20 acres were assigned to Adam and Elizabeth as their share of the approvement before Agnes had any free tenement in the vill to which common of pasture could belong. And should it appear that Agnes then had such free tenement, then she is his tenant, and he pleads the Statute of Merton, and says that Agnes has pasture enough; as to 3 acres, Agnes herself has reduced them to culture; as to the other 2 acres, Agnes agreed to their approvement.

And Simon produces the Charter of William de Hokeleschawe in these words:—"Know etc. that I, William de Hokeleschawe, have given granted and by this my present Charter confirmed to Simon son of Payn de Werington all my land which I held in the vill of Wygan, namely one burgage and one acre of land etc. to have and to hold of me and my heirs to him and his heirs between him and Emma his wife procreate freely etc. yielding thence yearly to the Rector of the Church of Wygan twelve pence and to the said William and his heirs one pepper corn (granum piperis) for all etc. so that the said Simon and Emma shall not be able to alienate assign nor sell to anyone the said burgage or its belongings except to their heirs between them procreate.

They say that plaintiff has no fee nor free tenement in Whytyngham apart from Matilda his wife, of her inheritance. Thomas says that he has a tenement by purchase, and their plea should not avail; for elsewhere in the King's Court before the said Geoffrey [Aguyllun] and Alan de Walkyngham in that County he brought a writ against the said John and Adam for a pool which they had made higher, namely that by raising the said pool a certain watercourse which used to come straight to his mill could not do so; and John and Adam granted for themselves and their heirs that the said water should come direct etc. The Assize proceeds.

John and Matilda say that they claim nothing but the nutriment of Alice and Agnes daughters of one Matilda daughter of Henry de Wyndehull who are now seised in fee of the freehold of the said tenement; and they produce a charter in the name of one Michael son of Robert de Brereclyf, by which he granted to Alice and Agnes all the land which Robert de Brereclyf formerly held in the territory of Brereclyf, which is the tenement now sought. The plaintiff says that they should not shelter themselves under this answer, for the said Michael enfeoffed Matilda wife of the said Henry, so that Alice and Agnes never after the said feoffment of Matilda had any rights therein. Day given to hear Judgment at Clyderhow on the Octave of S. Hilary [20 January 1285–6].

And Richard son of Richard says he holds all the said tenement against his father, which his father admits, and he calls his said father to warrant; as to 3 acres Anabel did not die seised; and as to the other 3 acres, Henry and Matilda held them after the death of Anabel, and Henry enfeoffed one Adam de Brereclyf who enfeoffed Richard.

Plaintiff says that, owing to the pool and watercourse running to the mill of the defendants, the men of Whyttingham and other vills around go across his land and meadows and trample on them, so that mill is a great nuisance. Defendants say that they hold in common with one Adam de [blank] who has a sixth part of the pool and of the profits of the mill and is not named in the writ; and, as the only claim is for damage done by people coming to the mill who trample on plaintiff's crops and meadow, such that he himself of his own will could restrain them, he asks whether he should answer.

Henry and Richard come, and Master Alan appears by John Sampson his bailiff. They say that the 10 acres of heath are in Prestcote and Chyrchel, not in Whystan. Henry says that the 20 acres of wood were enclosed by his father who held it as his severalty, as does Henry since his father's death; and plaintiff holds elsewhere to the value of that approvement. Richard de Chyrchel says that the 30 acres of moor are in Chyrchel, not in Whystan.

Thomas de Ines says that he cannot defend without Alienor his wife; and William de Preston that he cannot be sued without Alienor his wife. The plaintiff cannot deny this and asks leave to withdraw his writ against Thomas and William, which is granted.

Robert Gryndelase calls to warrant Hugh le Mercer; to have him at Clyderhow on the Octave of S. Hilary.

Henry and Hugh appear. The other defendants (Robert de Rouynton and Adam de Welleton are dead) come not, and they were essoined for absence at Lancastre a month from Easter last; the Assize is taken against them in default.

Mort d' Ancestor—Adam Kibbel, in right of Adam Kibbel his father v. William son of Richard de Rybbel re a messuage in Wurtheston.

Defendant says that one Richard, grandfather of plaintiff, was seised after the death of Adam the father, and the writ of Mort d'Ancestor should be a claim in right of the last in seisin; and that Adam who now brings this Assize is heir of Richard. Adam by his guardian, being under age, says that Adam his father died seised in fee, and after his death Richard intruded. As Adam is under age and the Justices wish to be more certain of this matter the enquiry proceeds.

Verdict, that Adam died seised in fee of the gift of the said Richard his father who, after Adam's death, intruded upon the messuage and enfeoffed the defendant, William.

A day given to hear Judgment at Clyderhow on the Octave of S. Hilary [20 January 1285–6].
