to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover.

July 1. Restitution, with the assent of the Council, of the manor of Shipdon,

Monday after the Annunciation in the eleventh year demised the said manor 
with its appurtenances, fines and amercements excepted, to John Beek 
the younger, son of John Beek of Dedersell, for 80 years, on condition 
that for the first six years he should pay to the abbot and his successors 
84 marks, and afterwards 40 marks a year, and that if the rent should be 
a term in arrear or the said John should die within the time, it should 
be lawful for the abbot and his successors to re-enter the premises, the 
said manor by the name of the manor of Shibdongrange was seized into 
the king's hand by Alan de Eirketon, late escheator in that county, 
because it was found on inquisition before him that the said John had 
absconded for felony and also for a reason which was not true but feigned, 
viz. because lately the earl of Tuttebury (sic) gave the manor to the said 
abbot and convent, on condition that they found a chaplain to celebrate 
divine service thrice a week in the chapel of the manor, to distribute 
weekly amongst the poor a loaf of four bushels of corn and to pray 
for his soul and for the soul of the king and his progenitors, which for 
20 years past was not maintained as ordained, whereas the said abbot 
and convent and their predecessors from time immemorial were seised 
of the manor in right of their church. Subsequently by letters patent 
the king granted the manor by the name of the manor of Shibdon in the 
parish of Queyntone, co. Buckingham, to John Verdon, esquire, to hold at 
farm so long as it should be in the king*s hand, paying to the said abbot 
yearly as much as the said John Beek the younger paid under the inden- 
ture aforesaid, and the said rent being two terms unpaid, the abbot sued 
him by writ of scire facias to show cause why he the said abbot should not 
be seised thereof, and the said John Verdon failing to appear, these 
presents issue. By p.s.
