PREFACE. 



The present volume deals with certain rolls of Chancery 
of the reigns of Edward I and Edward II which do not 
properly belong to any of the larger series of enrolments, 
and it comprises Supplementary Close Rolls, Welsh Rolls 
and Scutage Rolls. 

SUPPLEMENTARY CLOSE ROLLS. 

It was a frequent practice of Chancery clerks to group 
together entries relating to a particular subject, and it 
was occasionally found convenient to make consecutive 
entries of this kind into separate rolls, which may be 
regarded as supplements to the normal Patent Rolls and 
Close Rolls of the period. Under this heading English 
abstracts of the following rolls are included in the present 
volume. 

(a) 5 and 6 Edward I. I^icences for the exportation 
of wool. 

In consequence of dissensions between Henry III 
and the Flemish, it had been found necessary 
to restrict the trade between the two countries 
and to impose an oath on merchants to that 
effect and subsequently to afforce the oath 
by an ordinance of forfeiture. Hence a large 
number of licences to trade beyond seas were 
issued, some of which constitute the present 
roll, while others are found on the Patent 
Rolls of 1 and 2 Edward I (Calendar of Patent 
Rolls, 1272-1281, pp. 13-27,33-39,51-52,67-68). 
The fact that the latter are licences to the 
individual merchants in the form of letters 
patent, whereas the entries in the present roll 



VI PREFACE. 

are in the form of mandates to the mayor 

and sheriffs of I^ondon and others, is the 

justification of their assignment to different 

classes of records. It is perhaps worth 

observing that the entries in the Patent Roll 

are on the face and dorse of the same membranes 

and could conveniently have been made into 

separate rolls at the time, though in one case 

the space left blank on the face of the membrane 

has been subsequently used for entries of a 

different nature. 

(&) 25 Edward I. Orders for the restitution of lay-fees 

of ecclesiastics and for the exemption of goods 

annexed to spiritu'aUties from taxation to the 

subsidy of a twelfth granted by the laity. 

Here again similar entries are found on the Close 
Rolls and Patent Rolls of this year. Those 
on the Close Rolls are clearly of the same 
nature. They occur on membranes 20d., lid. 
and 9d. and must be read in close connexion 
with the first entry on the face of m. 20, the 
purport of which is the same as that of the 
writ given on p. 22 of the present volume 
(Calendar of Close Rolls, 1296-1302, pp. 14, 
88-97). On the Patent Rolls of this year will 
be found a large number of protections for 
clergy : the enrolments commence on m. 12d. 
and the clue to their meaning appears in the 
entries on m. 12, which are mandates and 
commissions to enquire into the alleged 
contumacy of a large number of clergy in re- 
fusing to aid in the defence of the realm and 
church of England, and to afford tlie king's 
protection to such ecclesiastics as consented 
to enter into recognisances. The commissioners 
in each county are the sheriff and a knight named 
to act with him ; a parsoti, for example, who 



PREFACE. Vll 

receives his exemption by the testimony of 
Adam de Welle, may be assigned with much 
probability to a I^incolnshire benefice, as the 
entry in the Patent Roll names Adam de Welle 
as assessor to the sheriff of that county. 
These knights are the same as those by whose 
' testimony ' the orders in the present roll are 
issued, a circumstance which has been of the 
greatest assistance in identifying the places 
named (Calendar of Patent Rolls, 1292-1301, 
pp. 239, 260-286). 

(c) 31-32 Edward I. Respites of assizes of novel 
disseisin in favour of persons serving in Scotland. 

Such assizes were excepted from the scope of the 
normal letters of protection, to which these 
respites are supplementary. 

(d) 31-32 Edward I. Respites of an aid in favour of 
persons serving in Scotland. 

(e) 5 Edward II. Orders for the resumption into the 
king's hands of grants made since 16 March, 
3 Edward II, in pursuance of an ordinance of the 
prelates, earls and barons elected to ordain 
concerning the estate of the king's household. 

(/) 8-18 Edward II. Orders to supersede the levy of 
scutage from the lands of those who have performed 
their military service in person. 

This roll differs from the Scutage Rolls mentioned 

below in the material point that it relates only 

to those who did their service in person and 

excludes those who did their service by deputy 

or compounded for their service : formally, the 

writs are addressed in this case to the collectors 

of scutage and not to the sheriffs of the various 

counties, as is the case in the Scutage Rolls. 

(g) 1-20 Edward II. Orders to the sheriffs prohibiting 

further process in pleas brought by writ of right, 

in which the tenants had put themselves upon the 

grand assize. 



viii PREFACE. 

WELSH ROLLS. 

These rolls are seven in number and contain enrolments 
of Letters Patent, Letters Close, and Charters, issued under 
the Great Seal of England and of other documents directly 
or indirectly relating to Welsh affairs between the 6th and 
23rd years of Edward I. A few of the entries on them 
occur also on the series of Patent, Close, and Charter Rolls, 
which normally contain entries relating to Wales before 
and after the limited period covered by these seven 
Welsh Rolls. The enrolments deal at some length with 
the following subjects : the struggle with Lleweljnti ap 
Griffin, the report of commissioners sitting locally as to 
the laws and customs of Wales, the settlement of the 
lands of Griffin ap Wenonwen, the rebellion of Rhys ap 
Meredith, the charters of Strata Florida abbey and the 
dissension between the earls of Gloucester and Hereford. 
A roll of letters patent of protection for persons going to 
Wales in the king's service in the 23rd year is now classed 
with other Protection RoUs among the Supplementary 
Patent Rolls. 

SCUT AGE ROLLS. 

The four Scutage Rolls calendared in this volume record 
the grants of scutage to those who did their service in the 
armies of Wales and Scotland in person or by deputy or 
who compounded therefor between the 10th year of 
Edward I and the 4th year of Edward II.

This shall be the form of the oath of the merchants : that they 
shall not sell anything by themselves or by others in this realm to 
Flemings or to men of the power of the count of Flanders, or purchase 
anything from them ; and shall at the same time acknowledge if they 
owe anything to men of Flanders or if they know that others owe them 
anything, and [if so] how much, and to whom, and that they shall not 
receive anything either on this side the sea or beyond, or trade with 
money of men of Flanders in England, and if they know that other 
merchants, Lo&bards or of England or elsewhere, trade with their 
(i.e. the Flemings'), money, or communicate with them contrary to 
the king's prohibition, they shall cause this to be made known to 
the king or to his chancellor as soon as they can. And for the 
execution of these things they shall be boimd by their oath \mtil an 
agreement shall be made with the king for his merchants of England 
concerning the goods that were taken (tolez) in Flanders, or until the 
king shall otherwise command. The king does not intend (we tent 
pas) that they shall be restrained (destreint) by this oath from selling 
their wool and other goods beyond sea to the men of Flanders without 
challenge. French. 

May 30. To the mayor and sheriffs of London and to all bailiffs and faithful 

Windsor, men to whom these letters shall come. The king has granted to 
Nicholas de Lodelawe, his merchant, licence to take 250 sacks of 
wool to parts beyond sea, by himself or his men, to make his advantage 
thereof, notwithstanding his late inhibition of any one taking any wool 
to Flanders or elsewhere outside the realm until further orders, 
provided that Nicholas pay the due and usual customs in the realm : 
the king orders them to permit Nicholas and his men appointed for 
this purpose to take the 250"sacks thither without impediment. These 
letters are to endure until Michaelmas next.

Angles[eyel, in the bishop's diocese, when David was there in the king's 
service, belonged to them, caused a cross to be placed upon the com,

of grievous forfeiture from exacting or taking anything under colour

any persons for trees felled or to be felled or to be rooted up in 
Swerdewod and in the woods between Mold (Montem Altum) and it or 
elsewhere in the four cantreds, and that all who wish may take and have 
freely at their pleasure of the woods in those passes until the passes

the woods beyond the passes at their will ; and that all who wish

{chiminagium) in going and coming and in removing and carrying 
away the wood, as shall seem most expedient for them ; and that no 
one shall hinder them in the premises or any of them until the king 
shall otherwise order. 

June 1. To Llewelyn son of Griffin, prince of Wales. The king learns from 

Westminster, the information of certain of his subjects that whereas Madoc son of 
Eynon is, according to the form of the peace between the king and 
Llewelyn, in the king's homage for certain lands that he holds of the 
king in Wales and in Llewelyn's homage for certain lands that he 
holds of him there, Llewelyn has taken into his hands Madoc's lands 
because he will not recede from the king's homage, and he detains 
the lands unjustly and contrary to the form of the said peace. The 
king, as he wills that Madoc shall not be unduly aggrieved as to the 
premises, which Llewelyn ought also to desire, orders Lleweljm to 
desist from infficting such annoyance upon Madoc henceforth, and 
to cause his said lands to be restored to him, and to permit him to 
hold his lands in peace in accordance with the form of the peace, so 
that he shaU not have grounds for complaint in this matter by 
which the king shall be solicited. 

June 4. To the same. Whereas his letters received by the king set out 
Westminster, that the king's justices of oyer and terminer in the marches and in 
Wales have caused him to be cited to appear at Montgomery to do and 
receive justice concerning certain lands occupied against him in 
which he claims to have right, improperly and against Welsh laws 
and customs, the king signifies to him that both in the times of his 
predecessors, kings of England, and in his time it was always usual, 
even according to Welsh customs, that pleas of lands held in chief 
immediately of him and of the crown of England, or that ought to 
be so held, in the marches and in Wales, should be heard and 
determined at certain days and places appointed by the justices 
appointed to hear and determine such pleas, although it was usual 
that pleas concerning other lands held of the king mediately (per 
medium) were frequently heard and determined in places in which 
such lands lay jurisdictionally (litigiose) and that justice was there 
exhibited to the parties. The king, who wishes to be a debtor of 
justice to him and to every man of his power, as he ought, has, leat

Llewplyn's right should bo further delayed, appointed certain of his 
subjects, lovers of jjoace and justice, and whom he has enjoined by 
word of mouth to go to the parts aforesaid and to hear at certain 
and proper days and places, which they shall signify to him, his proofs 
(racionea) and complaints concerning the lands of which his letters 
make mention, and to do justice to him in form aforesaid, as ought 
to be done of right and according to the custom of those parts, nothing 
else being contained in the form of the peace aforesaid. The king 
will observe inviolably the things that are contained in the peace, 
with the help of God, concerning the robberies that the men of 
Griffin son of Wenunwen inflicted upon Llewelyn after the con- 
clusion of the said peace, and also concerning the men who withdraw 
from Llewelyn under pretext of the lands that they hold of the king 
in Wales the due and usual services of the lands that they hold of 
Llewelyn. The king has enjoined his said justices to call into 
Llewelyn's presence, if he wish to be present, the said Griffin and 
his men aforesaid, and to hear on both sides what they shall 
propound, and to cause such and so speedy a remedy to be made 
in the premises that just grounds of complaint shall not be left to 
Llewelyn nor them. The king will not believe lies or sinister reports 
concerning Llewelyn, if any such have been suggested to him, pro- 
vided that Llewelyn and his men show and observe due faithfulness 
to him in deeds and works, and the king will be benevolent and a 
friend to him in all things, as of right he may and ought. Concerning 
Llewelyn's fugitives who have fled from Llewelyn's distraint 
(districtu) to the king's lands or power, the king, when he shall have 
been fully acquainted with this matter and when Llewelyn or others 
will speak concerning it, will cause to be done what justice demands 
in this behalf. [Foedera.] 

Membrane lOd. 
July 14. To the same. The king signified to him the things concerning 
Windsor, the affairs of A. bishop of Bangor that he lately sent to Llewelyn 
not that he wished to diminish Llewelyn's liberties in any way or to 
detract from his rights, but in order that he might foment peace and 
concord between Llewelyn and the bishop, as befits LleweljTi's honour, 
so that the bishop might not have any just matter of complaint of 
anything that might injure his liberties or the rights of his church, 
for which reason the king requested Llewelyn to conduct himself, aa 
befits a prince, so courteously and modestly concerning the spiritual 
rights and temporalities of the bishop that honour may accrue to him 
from this and that he may merit suitable retribution from God. 

The king is not displeased because Llewelyn exacts from the abbot 
of Basingwcrk those things that ho and his "predccessora have always 
been wont to nccive heretofore, but it was the king's intention when 
ho wrote to him for (ho bisliop to induoo him to do those things that 
are known (o pertain to ills honour rath(<r than to cause any immunity 
to be oxtendod to th(! abbot to do what hi> and his predecessors have 
been wont (<> do to Llowolyn and his progenitors, but the king requests 
him not to demand from tiie abbot other things than ne ought 
justly to demand and (han he has boon wont to i-eceive heretofore, 
and to treat the abbot so kindly that it may not behove the king to send 
thither his justices at the just complaint of the abbot, whom the king

cannot fail any more than others of his realm in doing justice, in 
order to hear his complaints and do justice to him. 

The king does not understand and is unable to understand the article 
of the peace concluded between him and Llewelyn of which Llewelyn's 
letters make mention, to wit concerning the hearing and determining 
pleas and controversies in the marches and in Wales, in any other 
way than it was always usual and accustomed in the times of his pre- 
decessors and in his own time, nor can it be elicited from the wording 
of the peace otherwise than that controversies and contentions in the 
marches ought to be heard and determined according to the laws of 
the marches and those arising in Wales ought to be heard and 
determined according to the Welsh laws at certain days and places 
that he shall cause to be psefixed for the parties. Therefore Llewelyn 
shall come-before the king's justices in those parts at days and places 
that they shall make known to him to do and receive what justice

Certification and report (prisa) made at Chester by Thomas, 
bishop of St. Davids, Reginald de Grey and Walter de Hopton, on 
St. Vincent's day, 9 Edward I, in the form of the letters aforesaid. 

William Launcelyn, knight, sworn and diligently examined as to 
all and singular the articles aforesaid, says that he knows nothing. 

Sir Urian de Sancto Petro, knight, being sworn and dihgently 
examined, says that he saw a plea between Roger, steward of Mohaut, 
and Griffin ab Madok, lord of Haal, before the king's justices, to 
wit William de Wilton, Geoffrey de Langel[eye], John son of Geoffrey, 
by the king's writ, and it was adjudged at Rothelan by twelve jurors 
of the four cantreds, so that there were three men sworn from each 
cantred, and sentence was pronounced by their verdict. He does not 
remember any other pleas. 

Hamund de Culford, being sworn and examined, says the same 
as Sir Urian last sworn and agrees with him in all things. Being 
asked as to the law of Wales, he says that the common law in Wales 
is that when a man wish to demand land of another, the lord of the

fee, after hearing the complaint, ought to seize the land in question 
and then he who demands the land gives the lord of his own aocordina 
to what is agreed between them and the lord grants him a Juryrf 
twelve jurors, and it shall be adjudged aooordmg to their veniot 
Being asked whether he have seen [a suit] adjudged by hostages or 
by the law of Howel Dda, he says that he has not seen [one]. Being 
asked whether it was usual to adjudge by the king's writ or withoirt 
his writ, he says that it was always usual to litigate by writ con- 
cerning lands and possessions in the same way as is now pleaded 
before the king's present justices. Being asked if he have seen other 
pleas between others, he says yes, because he saw the present Sir 
Ralph Mohaut demanding the land of David de Mohaut, his late 
brother, and he obtained it in form aforesaid by the verdict of 
twelve jurors, and he stiU holds it. He also says that the present 
Llewelyn son of Griffin came before the king's justices at Griffin's 
Cross, and the plea was not determined by reason of the subsequent 
war. Moreover he adds that Roger, the steward of Mohaut. demanded 
the land of Mohaut from David ab Llewelyn before J. le Estraunge 
and other justices of the king at Wapir, and there derained his ^t 
by the descent of his ancestors by common writ and the common kw 
that the king's justices now use in Wales. Being, asked concerning 
other pleas and the circumstances of the pleas, he says that he has sera 
many pleas thus terminated, but he does not now recollect the names 
Hugh de Polsford, knight, being sworn and diUgently examined 
as to aU the aforesaid articles, says that he knows nothing because 
he never lived {conversabatur) among the Welsh and never heard 
them pleading before justices or others. 

^1,^1^^?°^^^ *^® Humvill, being sworn and diligently examined, says 
that the common law between the prince of Wales and Welsh barons 
of Wales and the Welsh barons of Wales and their peers and their 
mferiors is, as he has hitherto understood, that when anyone wish to 
demand land, he shall give to the lord of his own according to what 
is agreed upon with the lord or his baiUff, and he shall have a Jury 
ot twelve sworn men, and that he has never seen [a case] judged by 
[blank] or by any other law of Howel Dda (Howelda). He s^ also 
that it was always usual to litigate by the king's writ as it is now 
pleaded before the king's present justices. He also says that the 
demandant shall give the lord of his own and shall have an inquisition 
of twelve jurors, and in this manner Sir Ralph de Mohaut obtained 
the land of David de Mohaut, his brother. Being asked whether the 
lord ought to seize land into his hand at the beginning of a plea, 
he says he does not know. Being asked in form aforesaid whether he 
has seen a-ny plea determined, he says yes, because he says that he 
himselt htigated with Kanewrek Seys and his brethren and obtained 
Judicially his land before Roger Croistil, then steward of Mohaut, 
and says that it was always usual to be adjudged thus in those pariis 
and not in any other way, and ho never hoard any other custom or 
law alleged m those parts. He also adds that if any of the Jurors 
were tound to bo enomios or otherwise suspected for a reasonable 
cause they might well be moved from the Jury or inquest. Being 
asked concerning the other pleas and articles aforesaid, he says that 
ho does not now recollect any more (plunbua). 

WUham de Haweldin, baing sworn and examined, says that he saw 
a plea between Llewelyn the present prince of Wales, and Oweyn, 



9 EDWARD I. 193 



1281. Membrane 5 — cont. 

his brother, by the late king's writ before the said king and his council 
at London, and that Owe3m came sometimes (qnqz.) in his own person, 
and that nothing was alleged concerning the law of Howel Dda, but 
this plea afterwards ceased by reason of war. Being asked con- 
cerning other pleas, he says that he saw a plea between Griffin and 
David, his brother, prince of Wales, before Stephen de Segrave, the 
king's justice, and that they did not Utigate by Welsh law, but in 
the English manner a duel was wagered between them, and the 
champion was David Galfrid' de Langeton, and that Richard de 
Hanecot argued {narravit) for one, and R. de Boyland for the other? 
and it was not proceeded with any further because Judgment was delayed 
by war. Being asked if he saw many pleas, he says yes, because he 
says that he himself prosecuted a plea between the present Llewelyn, 
prince of Wales, and Robert the steward of Mohaut at Redwemma 
before the bishop of Exeter and Walter, bishop of Worcester, and 
Adam de GreinviU answered according to common law and made 
no exception (excepit) of Welsh law. He says also that he has seen 
them pleading at Hawardyn before the present bishop of Bath, 
Sir Robert Bumel, and Robert Walran, but the suit {litigium) was 
not determined by reason of war. Being asked what the law ought 
to be in those parts and what the rights or laws are and what laws were 
wont to be used there, he says the same as Hamund who was pre- 
viously sworn. He adds that sometimes they use another manner, 
however, being corrupted by money or favour. Being asked if he saw 
any pleas, he says that he saw the plea between Sir Thomas Corbet and 
Griffin son of Guen Owenwyn concerning the land of Gordeber at 
Ridwimna, and Thomas derained the land judicially by the assize. 
Being asked if he saw many pleas in those parts, he says that he saw 
a plea between Wronou ap Pleydyn and Llewelyn Goch and his 
brethren, and Wronou promised money to the steward to have an 
assize, and as he did not pay the money promised, the land remained 
in the lord's hands, and he saw the same thing in many other pleas, 
which at present he does not recollect. He says also that that law 
is common throughout aU Wales between the greater folk and the 
greater, the greater and smaller, and the smaller and the greater, 
and peers and peers. 

Sir Patrick de HaseweU, being asked and examined concerning 
aU and singular the articles aforesaid, says that he knows nothing 
because he never heard any Welshmen htigating and has rarely lived 
{hdbuit conpersationem) among them. 

Howell de Sochlac, being sworn and diligently examined, says 
that he saw a plea between Griffin and David, his brother, son of 
the prince of Wales, and appeal was made by Griffin, and Idnevet 
answered for David, and after the appeal had been made Griffin was 
imprisoned and died in prison while the suit was pending. He agrees 
also concerning the common law of Wales with William and Hamund 
previously sworn, but adds that those by whom the inquisition is 
made sometimes say their truth [being] sworn without an oath (sic). 

John de Wetenhale, being sworn, says that he saw the plea between 
Griffin and David, his brother, and agrees in this with Howel 
Choglaohe* previously sworn. He also says that they often judge 
by inquisition between persons of Wales, but how often he does not 
know. He says also that the lord of the place shall seize the land 

* De Sochlac (Shooklaoh, co. Chester) above.

demanded into his hands until it be decided (diaeuaamn) concerning 
the right, and afterwards they shall have an inquisition in the matter 
upon paying for it (pro auo dando). And he adds that if a claim be 
placed {ai quod apponatur) upon the tenement demanded and this [be 
done] iii the name of the lord of the tenement, the tenant shall 
not be burdened therewith {operMtur for onerabitw ?) until it be 
decided concerning the right. Concerning the common law he agrees 
with those previously sworn. 

Hugh de Hatton, being sworn, says that he knows nothing. 

John de Merston, being sworn, says that he knows notMng as to 
the articles concerning which he is interrogated. 

William de Bonebury, being sworn, says concerning an appeal 
made that he saw and was present at Chester before the king when 
an appeal was made by his uncle, to wit Sir William de Maupas. 
Concerning the other things he agrees with Howell de Soglache 
previously sworn and with William and Hamund previously sworn. 

Robert le Brun, being sworn, says that he was not present among 
Welshmen in their court, but he heard that it was decided {dieeussum) 
by an inquisition concerning the right of the parties. He also saw 
that the men of Kynerton impleaded Griffin son of Madac, lord of 
Bromfeld, concerning a tenement there, so that at length the said 
plea came to an end in the prince's court by an inquisition, and so 
he says of each plea. 

Geoffrey de Oddon, being sworn, says that he knows nothing. 

Richard de Massy, being sworn, says that he knows nothing as 
to all the articles. 

The lord abbot of Chester, being sworn, says that he knows nothing 
as to all the articles. Being asked moreover if he have any deeds 
in his possession whereby the king may be certified concerning the 
articles aforesaid, he says that he has not. 

Alan de Calveton, monk, being sworn, says that he knows nothing 
that he can certify concerning the articles aforesaid. 

Master John de Stanleye, clerk, being sworn, says the same as 
WiUiam de Hawirdin concerning inquisitions between Ralph, lord 
of Mohaut, and David, his brother, and of the other things he knows 
nothing. 

Membrane 4. 
Roger Trocle, being sworn, says the same as Roger de Humvill 
concerning the plea between Roger and the son of Benewric (recfiiw

common law in the king's court by writ against Grifl&n Du and his 
brethren in the liberty of Mohaut. He also says that William de 
Hawrdin recovered by the king's writ in the liberty aforesaid against 
the lord and had an inquisition in the matter upon payment. He 
also says that David ab Griffin Aboweyn, lord of Edimyon, a Welsh 
baron, camo bofore the present king at Marlisfeud (rech'tw Madisfeud ?), 
and demanded the town of Brunoot, which is witliin the liberty of 
Mohaut, against Maurice de Croun, then the tenant, and the bailiff 
of Maurice came and demanded his lord's court in the matter, 
and he had it. Which David, coming into the same court, recovered 
by an inquisition there upon paying 10 marks, and thus by inquisition 
and upon payment they have used hitherto both in the time of tlje 
prince and of other lords,

of the cantred of Togengel (sic), on Friday before the Conversion of 
St. Paul, 9 Edward. 

* Petition of Llewelyn son of Oriffin, prince of Wales. — Since it has 
pleased the king to send such venerable and noble men as they {vos) are 
to enquire the truth as to the laws and customs of the parts of 
Arwistly and between [the] Diuy and [the] Dyulass in Wales used in the 
times of his ancestors, kings of England, the prince of Wales therefor 
prays them that they will diligently enquire into the article under- 
written, to wit whether there are Welsh Judges in the parts aforesaid 
having the office of judging there the said lands and inhabitants in 
accordance with Welsh laws, for if the said lands are not Judged by 
the laws aforesaid, it would not be necessary for Judges there to be 
sworn and examined to adjudicate, for it is clearer than light that 
the sons of Kinyr mabf Kadwgaun are ex officio judges, that is ' eneyt ' 
in Welsh {in Walensico), at Arwistle, and that Jorverth Vochan is 
a Judge, that is ' enat,' at KeveiUauo and between [the] Dyui and 
[the] Dywlass. 

Penewrec {rectiu^ Kenewrec) Seys, being sworn, says that he heard 
from his father's account that there was a plea between Llewelyn 
ap Joreverth, prince of Wales, the tenant, and Wenhundewyn, 
demandant, concerning aU the land of Powys before the justices at 
Westminster, in which king's time and before what Justices he is 
ignorant ; .which prince of Wales gave this answer in the king's court, 
to wit that Wenhunwyn had been convicted by judgment of his 
court as a traitor {homo seductor) to that prince, by which Judgment 
of the same court he lost the land of Powys, and was disinherited, 
and so died. Being asked how Griffin son of Wenunwen recovered 
the land of Powys, he says that it was by the power of King Henry 
in time of war. He also says that Eynon ap Walchmeyn was 
associated with the king's justices at Westminster, and that they 
Judged together. He also says that he saw a plea at Bothelan 
between Rotheric, demandant, and Llewelyn, prince, defendant, 
concerning his purparty in Wales, and that he [i.e., Llewelyn] 
answered according to common law and showed a deed made between 
them. He also says that according to the law of Howel Dda called 
' Keverith,' no one can sell or quit-claim his inheritance. Being 
asked as to the common law used, he says that when there was a 
plea between any one concerning any land, the lord of the place 
immediately shall place a prohibition (defensum) upon the tenement, 
and that it is in the pleasure of the lord to grant to the parties the 
law called ' Keveryth ' or that the truth of the matter shall be 
enquired by a Jury {per patriam). He also says that he heard from 
his father's account that there was a plea between Griffin ap Llewelyn 
and David, his brother, in the king's court in which a duel was 
waged, as is said elsewhere. He also says that the prince and each 
lord of Wales can correct and amend the laws. He has also seen J that

the truth of a matter was frequently enquired by a Jury {per 
patriam) between smaller men and the least, he does not know (sic). 

David ap Biohard, being sworn and examined, says the same con- 
cerning the plea between Llewelyn ap Joreverth, the prince, and 
Wenunwyn concerning the land of Powys as Kenewrio previously 
sworn says in his [evidence]. He also says the same concerning the 
common law that when there was a plea between any persons, it 
is in the pleasure of the lord to grant to the parties the law of 
' Keverith ' or that the truth of the matter shall be enquired by a 
jury, as is said above, and he has seen many pleas determined in this 
way. He also says that the prince or any other lord of Wales can 
correct and amend laws, etc. 

Eynon ap Ryryc, being sworn and examined, says the same con- 
cerning the common law as the previously sworn men in their 
[evidence]. He also adds that in fresh seisin the truth of the matter 
was wont to be enquired, and concerning old possession the law called 
' Keverith ' was wont to be used. He also says that when there is 
a plea between a rich man and a poor man concerning any tenement 
that it is in the will of the lord that they use the law aforesaid or 
that the truth of the matter shall be enquired, in order that equahty 
(equalitas) shall be observed, and in this manner he has seen it 
determined many times in form aforesaid. Concerning the plea 
between Griffin and David, his brother, he agrees with those previously 
sworn in their [evidence]. 

Eynon ap Ivor, being sworn, says the same concerning the laws as 
the men previously sworn in their [evidence]. He also says that when 
there is a plea between the magnates of Wales, they were wont to 
prosecute their right in the king's court, etc. 

Ivor ap Teowaret, [called] in Welsh ' Eynat,' in Latin ' Judex,' 
being sworn and examined, says that the magnates of Wales have 
been wont to obtain their right before the Mng and his Justices. 
Concerning the laws he agrees with the others previously sworn. He 
also adds that where the truth of a matter cannot be ea^y enquired, 
the suit used to be proceeded with {deduct) by the law of ' Keverith,' 
which law of ' Keverith ' used to determine pleas as if in plaMse of a 
duel, because it was not the custom to wage a duel in Wales, and thus 
it used always to be done. 

Eynon ap David, a judge, being sworn, says the same as Ivor the 
judge previously sworn in his [evidence]. He also sap that the 
prince of Wales could, if he saw that the law was inadequate 
{diminuta), amplify it, and abbreviate it if it was too lengthy 
{nimie ampla). 

Llewelyn ap Blethyn, being sworn, says that it was always usual for 
a plea, among the magnates of Wales to be proceeded with {dedttd) before 
the king and his justices, because he is their superior ; and it is in the 
choice of the lords what law they will grant to tiie parties, as is said 
above. The prince can grant laws for the alleviation and not for the 
aggrieving {exaaperacionem) of the country, 

Guyon ap Madoc, being sworn, says that it is in the will of the lord 
that the parties Utigating shall use the law o* Keverith or that the truth 
of the matter shall be enquired between them. He says also that he 
heard that Llewelyn ap Joreverth, formerly prince of Wales, would 
not in any way allow (siMhncre) that the said law of Keverith 
should proceed in his time, but that the truth of the matter should be

enquired, and so does now Llewelyn, the present prince, in the 
accustomed manner. Of pleas moved between any men he knows 
nothing. 

* Idenevet ap Ithel, being sworn, agrees with the men previously 
sworn concerning pleas of magnates that they were always wont to 
litigate and be determined before the king and his justices, but he says 
that the king cannot enquire the truth by a jury contrary to the will 
of the possessor or defendant, but [must] always proceed by the 
law of Keverith unless other course be taken by the consent of the 
parties, aaid this whether he be rich or poor. 

Ririch ap Lewarch, being sworn, agrees with the witness last sworn 
{cum proximo prejur'). 

Blethyn ap Ithel, being sworn, says that when it shall be 
pleaded between the magnates of Wales before the king and his 
justices, they will obtain their right, as he believes and understands. 
Of the other articles he knows nothing, because he gives more 
attention to hunting than to the discussion of law, as he says. 

Ithel ab Howel, being sworn, says that the king and his Justices 
ought to decide {discutere) between the magnates of Wales as their 
superior, but he says that he has not seen any plea in fact. He also 
says that he has frequently seen that a bailiff descended at his pleasure 
to find the truth of a matter by inquisition ; and he says that the 
prince, that is to say the king, can amend the laws for the alleviation 
and not for aggrieving (ad levamen et non ad gravamen). 

Llewelyn ab MeyUr, being sworn, says that he saw in the town of 
Buthelan that prince Llewelyn, in a case between a magnate and a 
poor man Utigatiog before him, enquired the truth of the matter by a 
jury, but he does not know the name of the litigants, but in a plea 
of this sort between peers he has not seen this. As to correcting 
laws, he says the same as the witness last sworn. 

Jorverth ap Madoc, being sworn, says that the king as superior 
ought always to have cognisance (cognoscere) between the greater ones 
and their peers of Wales. He says also that he always saw in fact that a 
baUifi descended to enquire the truth of a matter by a Jury ; and if 
the truth of the matter could not be known by a Jury, then it would 
be necessary to proceed to the law of Keveriht. 

Blouthein ab Meuric, being sworn and interrogated, as to all the 
articles, agrees with the witness last sworn. 

Griffin ab Ririch, being sworn, says the same as the three last sworn. 

Jorverth ab Ririch, being sworn, agrees in all things with those 
last sworn and with the others. 

Gronou ab David Vaghan, being sworn, agrees in this with the others 
previously sworn that the king ought always to have cognisance 
(debet cognoscere) as superior among his subjects. He does not, how- 
ever, recollect that he has seen any plea in fact between any persons, 
but the truth of the matter ought to be enquired and was usually 
enquired notwithstanding the protest (reclamiacione) of the tenant. 

Guyonab Bleitheyn, being sworn, agrees in all things with Gronou 
previously sworn. 

Sir Geoffrey de Brug', monk of Basingewerk, being sworn as to 
the said articles, says that he has seen no plea between any men, 
and does not know the laws and customs of them [i.e. the Welsh].

Baldwin of the same, monk, says the same as Geoffrey. Being 
asked if he had any instruments in his possession whereby the king 
might be informed as to the said articles, he says that he has not. 

Of the cemtred of Boaae. — Rerich ab Jorverth, being sworn, says 
that he saw a plea between the present prince Llewelyn and Griffin 
son of Wenunwen before the king at Rothelan, and that he afterwards 
saw a plea between them before W. de Hopton and his fellows at 
Mongomery. And he firmly believes that the king and his justices 
ought of right to determine pleas moved between magnates of Wales 
as their superior. He also says that it is more pleaded (p^ jilacitant) 
according to the truth of the matter than according to the law of 
Keverith, and this according to the will of the lord or his bailiff, not- 
withstanding the protest of the tenant, if the truth can notwith- 
standing be elicited by a jury. And the prince can correct deficient 
{diminutaa) laws into better, etc. *He also says that the whole country 
desires more that pleadings should be according to the truth of tbie 
matter than accorcUng to the law of Keverith. 

Tuder ab David, being sworn, says the same as Rerich last sworn. 

Adaf ab Tuder, being sworn, says the same in all and singular as 
Rerich previously sworn in his [evidence]. 

Tuder ab Madoc, being sworn, says the same of pleas moved between 
the prince and Griffin, and from hearing of the plea between Griffin ab 
Jorverth and David, his brother, before the king at London. He also 
says concerning the law the same aa Ririch, previously sworn. 

David ab Eynon, being sworn, says that he heard that a plea was 
moved lately between Griffin and David, his brother, at London before 
the king, in which a duel was waged there. Concerning the laws, he 
says that by the usual custom the truth of the matter is enquired at the 
will of the lords, unless it happen that by reason of the lapse {diutumit- 
atem) of time the truth of the matter cannot be enquired, and then 
recourse shall be had to the law aforesaid. 

Meuric ab Tuder, being sworn, says that he does not recollect any 
pleas, but he truly believes that the king and his justices among 
them ought to have cognisance, j* As to the laws and other customs, 
he says the same as those previously sworn in their evidence. 

HeUia ab Bleithin, being sworn, says that he saw a plea between the 
present prince and Griffin ab Wenunwen before the king and his 
justices. Of other pleas he has no recollection. As to customs and 
laws, he says the same as those previously sworn and of the oonection 
of the laws in mitigating and not in aggrieving, etc. 

Kenewrec ab Kareweth, being sworn, says the same as those 
previously sworn in all things. He says also that they think themsetves 
now well contented with their laws because their bailiff, to wit Gronou 
ab Heylin, conducts himself well amongst them by encouranng 
(attrahendo) [them] to enquire always the truth of the matter. And 
the community of the country desire this, etc. 

J^rvan ab ithel, being sworn, says of pleas he saw the magnates 
of Wales plead before the king and W. de Hopton, and he says 
there is no doubt that a plea ought to be moved before the king and

his justices as before the lord. As to the laws, he says the same as 
Kenewrek previously sworn. 

Kenewreo ab Elidir, being sworn, says the same as Jeyvan previously 
sworn. He also adds that when the truth of the matter cannot be 
elicited,* then process must be according to the law aforesaid, and 
according to that law the parties must go (eundum est) on to the tenement 
demanded, but the lord or his bailiff may say to the parties in the court, 
if he wish, " You shall have the same justice here as you would have 
if you had been on the tenement demanded," and thus they ought 
to be in court at the will of the lords or bailiffs. In the other articles he 
agrees with those previously sworn. 

Heylin ab Roppert, being sworn, agrees in all things with those last 
sworn, with this exception that where the process is according to the 
law of Keverith, it is always necessary to go to the tenement 
demanded and not elsewhere in any court. 

Ithel ab Philip (Phi'), being sworn, says the same in all- things as 
Kenewrek previously sworn, adding that the prince can correct laws 
at his pleasure and reform them, giving as an example fDavid ab 
Ilewelyn, grandfather of the present prince, who aboUshed by himself 
and his council the 'glanas' throughout North Wales. Jit seemed 
to him and his council that a crime ought to bind its authors {qtiod 
cidpaa suos debeat tenere auctores delinquentes) and not others who had not 
offended, which used to be done otherwise in coUeoting ' glanas,' etc. 

Gronou ab Philip, judge, being sworn, agrees in all things with 
the two last previously sworn. 

"Denevet ab Eithon, being sworn, says the same as Heylin ap 
Roppert previously sworn, and he does not recollect any pleas among 
any persons. 

Membrane 3. 

Ejmon ab Yoyvaf, being sworn, says that he knows nothing of 
pleas moved, but he says it is no wonder {nimirum e[s]t si) if the barons 
of Wales plead before the king as before their lord, and that it is 
to be enquired as to the truth of the matter in the accustomed way 
rather than by process by the law of Keverith, because it is more 
pleasing to God, according to what he says. 

Eynon ab Richard (Rid.), being sworn, says that he knows nothing 
of pleas, but the whole country desires more that the truth of the 
matter shall be enquired into than that process should be by the 
said law, and thus it has happened most frequently among them. 

§ Cantred Deffrehincloyt. 

Griffin ab Tuder, being sworn, says that when prince Llewelyn 
was not in the king's faith, then the barons under him in Wales were 
wont to plead before the prince and to prosecute their right. But 
when Llewelyn was at the king's faith, then [they were wont to plead] 
before the kuig and his justices. As to the laws and customs, he says 
that is in the lord's pleasure to grant either the law of Keverith or

that the truth of the matter shall be enquired. As to the correction 
of the laws, he says that at the instance of the country and by their 
assent, the king may reform them into better. Of the other things 
he knows nothing. 

Griffin ab Jorverth, Judge, being sworn, says that it is in the pleasure 
of the lords to grant either the law of Keverith to the parties or that 
the truth shall oe enquired by a Jury, and he says that the country 
desires rather that the process shall be according to the truth of the 
matter if it can be enquired by trustworthy men. In the other articles 
he agrees with the last witness. He also adds that if the law of 
Keverith be granted to the parties, then the judge ought always to go 
to the tenement that is demanded. 

Tuder Vecham, being sworn, says that the superior among his 
subjects ought always to have cognisance. As to the laws and the 
correction of the laws, he says the same as those previously sworn. 

*Kenewrec ab Madoc, being sworn, says the same as those last 
previously sworn, but he says that the lord can never of right descend 
to a Jury against the will of the possessor, but he can proceed by the 
law of Keverith, especially in pleas of land. 

Elias de Thlewenny, being sworn, says the same as Griffin ab 
Jorverth previously sworn. He also says that if he were king, all 
should be proceeded with according to the truth of the matter. 

Tegwared son of John, one of the Judges of the town of Rothelaa, 
being sworn and examined, says he has often seen a thing judged and 
by such a way to wit that when anyone demands land against another, 
he ought first to find sureties (pleg') to prosecute and the tenant ought 
also to find sureties that he will be before the judges at a certain day 
and place to answer. And if any one of them demand the law of 
Howel Dda and the other one demand an inquisition, the prince can 
grant an inquisition with one party dissenting, if he wish, for money 
or by special favour. Being asked if he had ever heard that 
Llewelyn proceeded to judgment according to the laws of Howel Dda 
when [one] party demanded an inquisition, he says that neither he 
[i.e. Llewelyn] nor Llewelyn, his grandfather, nor David, his uncle, 
ever wished to Judge according to that law but according to 
inquisition, and he assigns as a reason that the Welsh have a 
proverb in their tongue that t' truth is worth more than law,' and 
he says that he has seen a plea determined in form aforesaid 
before the present prince and his Judges between the sons of 
William ab Robin and the daughters of John, his uncle, and 
between David ab Tegwaret and Ms kin {parentda), and between 
Guyl ab Ridi and William ab Oweyn, who gave (d&tit) 61. to the jmnoe 
for having an inquisition, and he has often seen judgment given {judicari) 
in form aforesaid before the prince's bailifEs, but how often he 
does not know J. 

Eynon ab Nest, one of the judges of the town of Rothelan, beinjg 
asked concerning the custom and laws of the town, says that it is 
in the pleasure of the lord to grant for money or of grcMe either an 
inquisition or the [aforesaid] law. And as to the pleas between the 
sons of William ab Robyn and the daughters of Johiij his uncle, and

between David ab Tegwaret and his kin {parentela) and between 
Guyl ab Rydy and WilUam ab Oweyn, he agrees with Tegwaret last 
previously sworn. He says also that he has seen Judgment always 
given by such a way in the court of Rothelan. 

Candelo son of Gorgene, one of the judges of the town of Rothelan, 
being sworn and examined, agrees in all things with Ejmon last 
previously sworn, adding that by the charter and grant of the present 
king the burgesses of Rothelan ought to have the laws that the 
burgesses of Hereford have. 

Roger son of William, burgess of Rothelan, being asked and 
examined concerning the customs and laws of that town, says that 
they [the burgesses] have the same laws and customs as the burgesses 
of Hereford. And being asked if he remember the pleas aforesaid, 
he says he has heard from his father's account that the pleas aforesaid 
were finished and determined between the persons aforesaid in form 
aforesaid, but he himself did not see this because he was then a boy 
or very young, as he says. 

John de Pelham, burgess of Rothelan, being sworn and asked 
concerning the customs and laws of that town, says that he heard from 
the account of the burgesses of Rothelan that the present king granted 
to them the same Uberties as the burgesses of Hereford have, and he 
says that at Rothelan the same laws and customs are used as at 
Her[e]ford, as he believes. And he says that he rarely went to the 
court of Rothelan, because he is a merchant and has lately come to 
the town of Rothelan and he is much away from the town for the 
purposes of trade ; therefore he does not kaow the laws or customs 
and does not know how to answer further to the other articles. 

WiUiam Wirvyn, being sworn and examined, says that whenever 
he has seen judgment given according to an inquisition previously 
held the sentence was pronounced. He says also that he has not 
often seen a sentence pronounced, because he has lately come to Wales 
and has dwelt for a short time only {fer modicum tempus) at Rothelan. 
And being asked as to the other articles, he is ignorant entirely, as 
he says, because he is a newcomer {novus). 

Alan CoUe, burgess of Rothelan, being sworn and asked as to the 
articles aforesaid, says the same as John de Pelham previously sworn, 
but does not know how to answer further. 

Further of the report (aprisa) and certificate at Bothelan made the 
year and day aforesaid. 

William the crossbowman, burgess of Rothelan, being sworn and 
asked as to the articles aforesaid, says the same as WiUiam Wirvyn

he says that he heard from the account of many that the same laws 
and customs are now used at Rothelan as at Hereford.

laws, he says that among the Welsh whether they plead by the law 
of Howel Dda or otherwise, as he has heard, it shall always be determined 
(discucietur) by the neighbourhood by the means of an inquisition. 
Of the other things he knows nothing. 

WiUiam Pagyn, being sworn, says that as regards lands being 
demanded, the plea shSl always be determined by the verdict of 
twelve jurors, after judgment therein has been had by the whole 
court. Of the other circumstances he knows nothing, because he is 
a merchant and does not give his attention to {intendit eirea) such 
things. 

William son of Robert, being sworn, says the same as William last 
sworn. 

Nicholas Brusebon, being sworn, says that he has seen a plea 
between Owen son of Howel and Cadwalader and Mapinoyl, his brothers, 
before Sir John Lestrange (Extraneo), then justice, which plea was 
determined by the verdict of twelve jurors by means of an 
inquisition in the court of Mongomery. And thus it is done in a 
court of Welshmen {curia Walen') that process is by means of an 
inquisition to determine the truth of the matter. He also says that 
he has seen very many examples, which he does not recollect. 

Roger, the priest of Shirburg, being sworn, says that he has seen 
a plea between Griffin son of Wenunwen and Thomas Corbet of 
Le Gordur, which came to an end by the verdict of twenty four knights. 
And the said land is in the Welshry and outside the county. Ho says 
also that among the Welsh it is proceeded in like manner by means of 
an inquisition. 

William de Linley, being sworn, says that he has heard that there 
was a plea between Griffin son of Wenh[unwen] and GrifSn son of 
Madok concerning the land of Mahuaut {sic) at Westminster, and it was 
determined by an inquisition. As to the laws, he says that both in 
the court of Welshmen and in the court of Englishmen it is always 
proceeded by means of an inquisition. Of the other things he knows 
nothing, as he says. 

* John de Caretona, being sworn, says that he has heard from his 
ancestors that a plea was determined before the king and his Justices 
by means of an inquisition between a baron of tne March and a 
Welshman, half of the jurors being from the confines of the March and 
half of them Welshmen, espeoiaJIy as the king ought to have both 
under his power, etc.

Robert son of Howel, being sworn and examined, says that there 
was a plea between Thomas Corbet and GrifiSn son of Gwenonwyn 
before the ' justices of the [late] king concerning the land of 
Gorteoure. And the said Thomas recovered the land before the said 
justices of the late king by a verdict of twelve jurors, etc. And he 
says precisely that the Welsh have always used the same law up to 
this time, etc. He also says that the king has power to correct laws 
and customs. 

Howel (Howelinus) Vacan, likewise sworn, agrees in aJl things with the 
previously sworn. 

Adam Comatun, being sworn, says that of pleas of lands between mag- 
nates he has not seen any because [he is] of middle age. He also says 
that he has always used the laws that the king's ancestors gave them, 
but so that in a plea of land and of other great things it was usual to 
proceed {dedvM) by twelve jurors. Of the laws and voluntary customs 
injurious to the people, he says expressly that the king could always ■ 
at his pleasure correct such laws, but could not make them worse 
{deteriorare). 

Robert Vachan, being sworn, agrees with the previously sworn. 

Cadugan son of Wynne agrees with the previously sworn in all 
things, adding also that the late king did not give the laws and 
customs that are used, which he corrected in part. And he says that 
the present king may, if he wish, amend at his pleasure the laws and 
customs for the amelioration of the land and the common utility. 

Robert son of Guinne (?), being sworn, says that he does not recollect 
anything of pleas between magnates of his own seeing {devisu). As to the 
laws and customs and their correction, he agrees with the previously 
sworn. He says also that if * it should happen that the laws 
and customs have not been corrected as often as was necessary, it 
would be necessary (d^eret) to go to the king, in order that he 
might apply his council, etc. 

GrifiQn son of Gronee, being sworn, says that as to pleas of land, if 
any one demand any land, to wit an acre of land only, it was always 
usual that the plea should be Justiced before the king's bailiff without 
a writ and by twelve jurors, etc., and if it exceed an acre, he [the 
demandant] shall seek the king's writ and recover in form of law by 
an inquisition of twelve jurors, etc. He also says precisely of other 
pleas that they ought always to be justiced before the king's justices 
by twelve jurymen elected by the assent of the parties. As to 
correcting laws and customs, he says that the king ought to correct 
them, etc. 

David son of Jorverth, being sworn, is ignorant of pleas between 
magnates. But of other things he says that the king ought to 
correct the laws and customs for the common utility as often as shaU 
be necessary, etc. 

Cadugan de Stocton, being sworn, has seen nothing of pleas and 
knows nothing of the laws. 

Joreverth ap Cadugan, being sworn, agrees with Nicholas Brisebon, 
giving examples of pleas ; he. says also that in the time of peace in both 
courts, both English and Welsh, enquiry as to trespasses was made by 
twelve, but he does not know if this was done in regard to lands.

Tuder ap Madoo, formerly bailiff of Gery and of Halsete, being sworn,

and Meuric Barrah took judgment for slaying William de Mora by an 
appeal made for his death in the time of King John before him and 
his justices at Bruges by an inquisition of the country and they 
were hanged, wherefore they were disinherited by the judgment, 
but at the instance of their friends their children recovered out of 
the king's hands the land pertaining to them by inheritance, to 
wit at the instance of Griffin ap Wenh[unwen] and Thomas 
Corbet. He also says that he heard of a plea of Le Gordor 
between the said Griffin and Thomas, which plea was determined 
{cepit finem) before the king's justices, but he does not know before 
which justices, by a verdict of twenty-four sworn knights. He also 
says that he himself recovered land in Mahtref before* Humbert de 
Monte Ferand[i] against Eynon ap Gronou and his brother by the 
verdict of twelve jurors by means of an inquisition, and it is thus 
proceeded commonly in the land of Kery according to the law and 
custom used in those parts. And thus the men of Cadewey use that 
the truth of the matter shall be inquired. He also says that the 
magnates who hold land that is sued for {terram petitam) prefer {pro- 
ponunt) the law of Howel Da in order to obtain delay, because 
accordmg to that law there are great delays, but nevertheless they 
inquire according to the truth of a matter. He also says that a 
prince can amend laws for the better for the benefit {utUitatem) of 
the country, and especially the king [can do so].

commotes of land, to wit Gueneurglyn, Creud3ni and Comot Perveth, and 
he gave the land to Res ab (sic) Waygham son of Res ab Mechegun (»c). 
Being asked if he had seen many pleas among the magnates, he says no, 
except on the confines of lands in the manner of a parliament.

Traheren next sworn before, adding that there is no ' eygnat ' judge

208 CALENDAR OF WELSH ROLLS. 



1281. Membrane 2 — cont. 

and after three defaults the tenant ought to have three summons 
testifioatory, so that when the tenant comes to court and the 
demandant claims the land against him, it will behove the tenant to 
answer upon the principal plea and all the court will judge between 
them,* so that he to whom the court shall adjudge the land shall have 
the land, and he says that litigation is not carried on in any other 
way {non litigatur per aliam viam). He also says if a Welsh baron 
(baro) demand land against another Welsh baron, he ought to demand 
it before the king or his justice, and the truth ought to be enquired 
by their peers, Welsh barons, not suspected by either party. Being 
asked if he has seen such proceedings {sic Ktigatum) between any 
persons, he says yes, to wit between Mereduk ap Oweyn and Mereduc 
ab Rees in a plea of a bridge over Tevy at Appar ; also between Rees 
Vaghan son of Rees Amelgun', on one side, and the son of 
Mereduk ab Oweyn in the time of Llewelyn before Llewelyn himself

ment was made (jvdicatum fuit) by the court, but of pleas of lands 
and tenements he is ignorant, as he says. 

Yorverth Choch, being sworn and diligently examined, says that 
he has always seen in all pleas that it was aidjudged by the court ; 
and it was wont to be adjudged between all persons whatsoever (»nter 
quascunque peraonas), according to what he saw, as he says. 

Madoc Dir, being sworn and examined, says that in all the land of 
Powys, to wit in the land of Griffin son of Wenonwen, it is the law and 
custom that all pleas shall be conducted {exjxdiantiar) by the court, 
and this by an inquisition {et hoc per veritatem), and he says that 
sometimes (aliquando) there was there Jorverth Vaghan ab Jorverth 
ab Run who was called by the name of ' Engnath, that is ' judge,' 
but nevertheless he never adjudicated, but because he went to North 
Wales to learn the laws of Howel Dda, he for that reason acquired 
that name. Being anked if he was judge by hereditary i«ht, as 
they wore usually {nc uti sunt) in North Wales, he sa3rs no. He says

June 6. To Llewelyn son of Griffin, prince of Wales. The king learns by the 
Westminster, tenor of the jury and inquisition lately taken before Thomas, bishop 
of St. Davids, Reginald de Grey and others the king's faithful 
[subjects], in Wales and in the marches of Wales concerning the laws 
and customs used in those parts in the times of the late king and of 
other predecessors of the present king, and also by inspection of 
the rolls of the late king and of other predecessors of the present king 
heard, recited and understood before the king, the prelates, earls, 
barons and his council concerning writs and pleas pleaded 
(deductis) in the times of the said kings, which rolls agree with the Jury 
and inquisition, and the king has caused it to be pronounced that the 
same laws and customs shall now be held, observed, conducted 
{dediicantur) and determined in those parts as in the times of the kings 
aforesaid. The king signifies this to Llewelyn in order that Llewelyn 
may prosecute a plea between the latter and Griffin son of Wenunwen 
concerning lands in those parts in accordance with the laws and 
customs aforesaid. The king has enjoined his Justices of those 
parts to cause the premises to be observed before them and to 
exhibit to Llewelyn speedy justice in form aforesaid in the plea 
aforesaid and in other pleas. [Fcedera.] 

Nov. 8. To the same. The king has received with pleasure {liberalUer) 
WestminBter. Llewelyn's letters, and has fully and with good will understood the things 
[related to] him by the tenor thereof concerning the plea between 
Llewelyn and Griffin son of Wenunwen before the king and before W. de 
Hopton and his fellows, justices in Wales and in the marches of Wales, 
concerning the lands of Amistly and between [the] Dyui and[the]Diwbas 
(sic). He wishes Llewelyn to know that he will do willingly those things 
concerning which he has requested the king, if he can do so without 
wrong to anyone else. And although the king is ready and willing to 
observe firmly and inviolably, so far as in him lies, the form of the 

Eeace lately entered into and confirmed between him and Llewelyn, 
e cannot, however, on those grounds refrain {diasimulare) or omit 
to do to his barons and to others what he ought to do and as justice 
is wont to be done ; wherefore, having hod mligent treaty as to the 
premises with his Justices aforesaid and with his other Justices and his 

* Marginal note : Mala lex.

council, wishing to accede as far as possible to Lewelin's prayers 
aforesaid, he finds by their counsel that whereas Griffin alleged before 
Walter and his fellows that Llewelyn was not bound to answer for 
Griffin's lands without the king's writ, the justices, as they had no 
further writ, prefixed a day to Llewelyn and Griffin, as is testified by 
the justices before the king, and whereas, after searching the rolls 
in the treasury of the time of the king's progenitors, it is found that the 
barons of those parts were not accustomed to answer without a writ, 
and after searching the writs before the king and his justices, no original 
writ was found between Llewelyn and Griffin in this matter, further 
proceedings in this plea cannot be had in any way without a writ 
without doing wrong to Griffin, which Llewelyn must not resent {moleste 
non feratis). 

To Griffin son of Wen Onewen. As the king learns by the testimony 
of trustworthy persons that Griffin was in seisin of the homage and 
service of Mereduc son of Leulin and of his parceners and of their 
ancestors, tenants of the land of Megheyn, both before and after the 
war (turbacionem) in Wales, and the Mng has ordered them to be 
intendent and respondent to Griffin as they and their ancestors have 
been heretofore, saving always any claim that the king may have 
in the homages and services ; he orders Griffin to distrain them, if 
need be, to do the homages and services to him and to render to him 
their arrears, as shall seem most expedient to him. 

Nov. 10. To Mereduc son of Lewelin of Meghejm and to his parceners. Order 
Westminster, in pursuance to be intendent and respondent to Griffin in doing homages 
and other services hereafter, saving the king's claim as above.

murage from the time of the grant, as the king has fully enjoined upon 
him by word of mouth ; the king orders the bailiffs to cause the 
account of all issues of the murage and of all costs and expenses about 
the construction and repair of the walls to be rendered to Robert, 
and he orders them to aid Robert in everything pertaining to the 
account, as Robert shall enjoin upon them on the king's behalf.

dwelling with him in the same castle, and slew certain of them, and 
burned the houses of the castle, and took Roger and carried binn off and 
held him captive, and in addition their aiders went feloniously to the 
king's castle of Flynt and burned certain houses there as far as possible 
{ut potiierant), and slew certain of the king's men there, and committed 
robberies, homicides and other enormities there ; the king, trusting 
in Roger's tried fidelity, circumspection and industry, has appointed 
him his captain in those parts to pursue and take such malefactors, 
as he shall see most fit for the preservation of the king's peace, and the 
king therefore requests and enjoins him to attend diUgently to the 
execution of the premises and to conduct himself so valiantly and 
strongly herein that the king shall be compelled to commend his 
diligence, circumspection and industry. He is enjoined to give 
credence to what Bogo de CnovUl, whom the king is sending to him 
for this purpose, shaU relate to him in the king's behalf concerning 
the premises. The king has ordered the knights, sheriffs and whole 
community of the counties of Salop, Worcester, Stafford, Hereford

This they are enjoined not to neglect in any way as they love their

his father was captain of the king's garrisons that the king, so far as 
lies in Roger's power, may seem to recover to some extent in the son what 
he has lost in the father, and so that the king may be the more strongly 
bound to him in the future. Roger shall do concerning the premises 
what Roger Lestrange (Extraneus), whom the king has appointed 
captain of his garrisons in those parts, shall tell him on the king's 
behalf. As often as the king ponders over the death of Roger's father 
he is disturbed and mourns the more his valour and fidelity, and his 
long and praiseworthy services to the late king and to him recur 
frequently and spontaneously to his memory. As it is certain that 
no one can escape death, the king is consoled and Roger ought to be 
consoled on his part because there is good hope that his father after 
the trials of this life has now a better state than he had. The king 
makes the request aforesaid to Roger because, on account of the affairs 
of the world, which we see so frequently fall out unexpectedly, he 
holds it necessary that those things shall be fulfilled and done that 
are incumbent upon him in accordance with the course of worldly 
events (juxta mundialis fempestatis im/petum) as their nature (qtialitas)

and his subjects in his service in Wales and making passage therewith 
through divers places of those counties towards the king and his army 
are grievously hindered as to the victuals and their other goods and 
also their horses and carts ; the king orders the sheriff to cause 
proclamation to be made in the towns of Warwick and Leicester 
and elsewhere in market towns and other places in which he shall see 
fit that none of the king's ministers, members of his household {fami- 
liaris), or bailiffs shall impede, molest or disturb under pain of forfeiture 
such tranters or others bringing victuals or other necessaries to the king 
and his army. If any person be foimd doing so, the sheriff shall cause 
him to be arrested and kept in safe custody until the king shall otherwise 
order. The sheriff shall provide that twenty tranters with twenty 
carts besides other persons shall come continually to Chester with their 
victuals and merchandise {negociacionihus), which they shall sell there, 
or shall come with them to Rothelann, if they wish. The sheriff shall 
not omit under pretext of any of the king's protections granted to any 
persons whatsoever, except those who are in his army, from removing

to set out thence with WiUiam at the king's wages in the king's 
expedition against the Welsh rebels and to do those things that WiUiam 
shall enjoin upon him or his men. This he is enjoined not to omit 
in any way as the king trusts in his fidelity. The king thanks him 
for the aid afforded by him and his men against the Wefih rebels, the 
more cordially because he knows how faithfully and diUgently OUver 
has performed the premises. [Faedera ; Pari. Writs.]

committed by the Welsh upon the king's progenitors and him by 
invEisions of the realm from time within memory ; but, leaving the 
past, the earl, who has been partaker in the king's labours and costs, 
has seen with his own eyes how Llewelyn and David, in breach of the 
fealty that they had made to the king, suddenly burned the king's 
towns, slew and burned many of his subjects and committed others 
to prison, invaded the king's castles, but God, wishing, as it seems 
to put an end to these evil proceedings, has, after the prince had been 
slain, destined David, as the last survivor of the family of traitors 
aforesaid, to the king's prison after he had been captured by men 
of his own race. The king intends to ordain, after taking counsel 
(colloquio) with the earl, who has sustained, as has been said, damages, 
labours and costs together with the king in defeating the brothers and 
their accomplices, what ought to be done with David, whom the 
king received as an exile, nourished as an orphan, and endowed with

goods and chattels, to receive Rhys or any of his accomplices or to find 
them any maintenance by any art or contrivance, or to do aught

good and cautious spies throughout the whole sea-coast {maritimam) 
of his bailiwick, who shall spy out the coming of Rhys to those parts 
and shall warn William of it, so that Rhys may in no way go to the 
said parts or to others. William is exhorted to behave himself so 
in the execution of this order as to merit the king's commendation.

Because the king — on the complaint of Humphrey de Bohun, earl 
of Hereford and Essex, understands that Gilbert de Clare, earl of 
Gloucester and Hertford, John de Crepping', William de Valeis, 
Richard Flemeng, and Stephen de Cappenore and other men of the earl 
of Gloucester's land of Morgannou entered by force and arms the earl 
of Hereford's land of Brekennouk and committed homicides, robberies, 
both within and without churches, burnings and other enormities 
upon the earl of Hereford and his men in that land against the peace, 
etc. and after inhibition, etc. — ^wishing a remedy to be provided, 
as is fitting, assigned William, bishop of Ely, WUUam de Valencia, 
the king's uncle, John de Metingh[am] and Robert de Hertford to 
hear the complaints of the earl of Hereford and his men of all trespasses, 
wrongs and excesses committed upon them by the earl of Gloucester 
and the said John de Crepping', William de Valers, Richard and 
Stephen and other men of the earl of Gloucester in the said land of 
Brekennouk after the king's inhibition of the earl of Gloucester from 
inflicting annoyance, wrong or grievance upon the earl of Hereford 
and his men, to wit after eight days before the Purification in the 
18th year of the king's reign, and to hear the answers of the earl of 
Gloucester and his men, excepting trespasses, wrongs and excesses 
committed before the said time, concerning which a plea is pending 
before the king in his court between the parties, which plea the king 
wills shall be reserved to him, and to make inquisition concerning 
the trespasses by the oath of men of cos. Hereford, Kermerdyn and 
Kardygan and of the parts of Gouer, Kedwelly, Ewyas and Gromund. 
By reason whereof the king ordered by his letters patent the said 
bishop, William, John and Robert to execute the premises at a certain 
day and place, etc. and to certify him of their proceedings within 
fifteen days of Easter, in order that he might cause to be done in this 
matter what he shaU cause to be ordained by his council. The long 
ordered the sheriff of Berks to make known to the earl of Gloucester 
and ordered in like manner Robert de Tybotot, his justice of West 
Wales, to make known to John de Crepping*, William de Valers, 
Richard and Stephen that they should be oefore the bishop, WiUiam, 
John and Robert, if they should deem it expedient, at a certain day 
and place that the bishop, William, John and Robert should make known 
to the sheriff and Robert de Typetot. The Icing moreover ordered 
the sheriff of Hereford and the justice of West Wales and the 
bailiffs of Geoffrey de Qeneville and Theobald de Veidon at Ewyas 
and the bailiffs of Edmund, the king's brother, at Gromund to 
cause to come before the said justices at a certain day and place to 
be made known to them by the justices such and so many lawful 
men by whom the truth of the matter may be best known. Whereupon 
the sheriff of Berks was ordered to make known to the earl of Gloucester 
that he should be at Stratuwelly in the land of Breynnouk on the 



20 EDWARD I. 336 



1291. Me.mhrane 6 — C(M. 

first Monday of Lent, to wit the feast of St. Gregory, in the 19th year. 
And in like manner order was giv^n to Robert Tibotot, justice of 
West Wales, to make known to John de Cropping', William de Valers, 
Richard and Stephen to be there on the same day, if they deemed fit. 
The sheriff of Hereford and the said Justice of West Wales and the 
aforesaid bailiffs were ordered to cause such and so many men 
[cts above.] 

Moreover the king afterwards, considering (animadvertens) that the 
trespasses and injuries aforesaid, if they were committed after the 
inhibition aforesaid of the earl of Gloucester, might remain unpunished 
by the omission of either of the earls to prosecute (per non persecucionem 
viriiisque eorundem comitum) or by collusion between them, ordered 
by other letters patent the bishop and his fellows to enquire into the 
truth of the matter for the king's right and estate, in case the earls 
or either of them should wish to withdraw from the prosecution or 
defence, if anything should have been done or attempted in prejudice 
or contempt or injury of his crown and royal dignity or against his 
peace, after his inhibition made to the earl of Gloucester, and he 
therefore ordered them to enquire the truth of the matter by the oath 
of magnates and other upright and lawful men of Wales and cos. 
Gloucester and Hereford, so that no one should be spared in this 
behalf, because this matter touches the king and his crown and dignity. 
[Calendar of Patent Bolls, 1281-1292, p. 452.] 

The king also ordered John de Hastinges, John son of Reginald, 
Edmund de Mortuo Mari, Roger de Mortuo Mari, Theobald de Verdun, 
John Tregoz, William de Breous', Geoffrey de Canvill, and Roger de 
Picheworth to appear on the first Monday of Lent before the said 
bishop and his fellows at Brakennouk, and in Uke manner he ordered 
their stewards of their lands in Wales and the stewards of Edmund, 
his brother, at Monemuth and of the land of Gremund, Skenfrith, 
and White Castle {Albo Castello), and the steward of Kirkehowell, 
and the sheriff of Gloucester and Hereford, each of them to cause to 
come before the bishop and his fellows at the aforesaid term twenty- 
four knights and others of their respective bailiwicks to do what the 
bishop and his fellows should enjoin upon on the king's behalf in the 
premises and to certify the king in fifteen days from Easter of what 
the bishop and his fellows should find in this matter. [Ibid.] 

Afterwards, on the first Monday of Lent, at Brekennok, there came 
before the bishop and his fellows in good time {bene tempestive) John 
de Hasting', John son of Reginald, Roger de Mortuo Mari, Theobald 
de Verdun, John Tregoz, and Geoffrey de Canvill, and likewise jurors 
of the land of Edmund, the king's brother, and also of the bailiwick 
of Robert Tibotot of West Wales and of the land of John son of 
Reginald in Wales, Theobald de Verdon, and of cos. Hereford and 
Gloucester, to whom a day is given on Wednesday next at Laundou 
to do what the bishop and his fellows should enjoin upon them. 

And be it known that the bishop, and his fellows forthwith on the 
said Monday, after these things had been done, went to Strathuethly 
so that they arrived there about the hour of tierce. And the earl of 
Hereford came there. And the earl of Gloucester, John de Crepping', 
William de Valers, Richard le Plemeng, and Stephen de Cappenore 
did not come. And the sheriff of Berks, who was ordered to make the 
earl of Gloucester know that he should be here, to wit at Strathuethly, 
at this day, if he [the earl] should see fit, was ordered to make known 



336 CALENDAR OF WELSH ROLLS. 



1291. Membrane 5 — cont. 

to the earl, etc. And in like manner Robert Tibotot, Justice of West 
Wales, was ordered to make known to John de Crepping', William 
de Valers, Richard and Stephen that they should be here at this day, 
if they see fit. Therefore a day is given to the earl of Hereford on 
Wednesday at Landou, etc. And because the earl of Gloucester, 
John de Crepping' and the others did not come and they had been 
warned, as is testified above, therefore the inquisition shall proceed 
in accordance with the king's order, etc. ; but it is respited until the 
said Wednesday at Landou, where the jurors are adjourned. 

Afterwards at Landou, on the said Wednesday, the earl of Hereford 
came, and likewise John de Hasting, John son of Reginald, Edmund 
de Mortuo Mari, Theobald de Verdon, John de Tregoz, and GeofErey 
de Caunvill, and likewise the jurors aforesaid came. And the earl 
of Hereford complains that the earl of Gloucester, John de Crepping', 
William de Valers, Richard and Stephen and other men of the said 
earl of Margannou have many times invaded the earl of Hereford's 
land of Brakennok by force and arms, and have committed homicides, 
robberies both within churches and without, burnings and other 
enormities upon the earl of Hereford and his men in the said land of 
Brakennouk, contrary to the peace and the inhibition, etc. ; for 
which reason he demands earnestly that it may be proceeded to the 
enquiry into the truth in the promises, in accordance with the king's 
order. 

And because the king by his letters patent ordered the justices to 
cause the truth of the matter to be inquired even though the earls or 
either of them should withdraw [as at p. 335 above], and the matter is 
now in such a position that the earl of Gloucester does not come to 
the defence of this complaint, John de Hastinges and all the other 
magnates aforesaid are told on behalf of the kmg to put their hand 
to book to do what shall be enjoined upon them on the king's behalf, 
for the king's estate and right and for conservation of the dignity 
of the crown and of his peace. Who all answered imanimously that 
it is a thing unheard of that they or their ancestors heretofore had 
been compelled to take any oath in such a case. They also say that 
no such royal order ever came into those parts, except only that things 
touching this march were proceeded with {dediicte fuissent) in accordance 
with the use and customs of those parts. And although it was explained 
to John and the other magnates that no one in this behalf can have 
a march from the king {haiere marchiam domino r[egi] ), who for the 
common advantage (utilitate) is by his prerogative in many cases above 
the laws and customs used in his realm, and the said magnates were 
jointly and severally enjoined many times to make oath, the book 
being preferred to them, they all at length answered singly that they 
would do nothing in this matter without the consideration of their 
peers. 

And be it known that William de Breous' did not oome, because 
he had not been warned, as it was testified that his lands in Wales 
are still in the king's hands. 

And ill like manner Roger de Piooheworth did not oome, and it is 
testified that there is not in those parts any one bearing such a name 
(cognomen). Tlu\refore nothing concerning him or the right of the 
land [was decided], but in fact one Roger Pichard came, concerning 
whom nothing [was d(>cidod] in like maimer, as it seemed to the court 
that he came without a warrant, etc. 



20 EDWARD I. 337 



1291. Membrane 5 — cont. 

Concerning Geoffrey de Genevill it is testified that he has nothing 
in Wales and had nothing on the day when the long's writs issued, 
for he enfeoffed one Peter, his son, of what he previously had. 

Concerning the right of the land of John de Hasting' of Bergeveny, 
his steward testifies that no writ of the king came to him in this matter. 
And although some jurors came from the land of KirkehoweU, neverthe- 
less nothing [was done] concerning them because they came without 
a warrant. For the steward, who is present, testifies that he never 
received any writ of the king in this matter. 

And of the jurors of the land of Roger de Mortuo Mari in Wales 
nothing [was done], because it is testified that Roger holds the land 
of the earl of Hereford. 

And of the jurors of the land of Edmund de Mortuo Mari in Wales 
nothing [was done], because his steward did not offer any writ of the 
king in this matter. And in addition it is testified that they are at a 
great distance {sunt valde longinqui). 

Of the land of John Tregoz and of the land of Geoffrey de Camvill 
in Wales no jurors or stewards came. And moreover Geoffrey's land 
is in the county of Kermerdyn, where the justice of West Wales 
intermeddles with such things, etc. But from cos. Hereford and 
Gloucester the sheriffs come, and in like manner knights and other 
free and lawful men of their bailiwicks. 

And of the land of Edmund, the king's brother, the stewards {sen') 
and jurors come. 

And of the lands of John son of Reginald, Theobald de Verdun and 
of the bailiwick of the justice of West Wales there come the justice 
and his bailiff. 

And the sheriffs, stewards and bailiffs who cause the Said jurors to 
come hither at this day were enjoined on the king's behalf in the faith 
by which they are bound to the king to choose [jurors] from the 
strongest, most upright and lawful men of their bailiwicks, both 
knights and others, who are suspected by neither party, which sheriffs, 
stewards and bailiffs granted that they would do so and would faithfully 
present such [jurors] before the justices here in form aforesaid, as they 
assert. Therefore let the inquisition proceed. 

And hereupon Theobald de Verdun claims his liberty as to this, 
that he says men of his land ought not to swear here, etc. 

The jurors say upon their oath that William de Valers, Richard le 
Plemeng, and Stephen de Cappenore, with a multitude of horsemen 
and footmen of the men of the earl of Gloucester, came out of the earl's 
land of Morgannou with a banner of the earl's arms displayed, on 
Friday after the Purification, in the 18th year, against the earl of 
Hereford's land of Brakennok, and entered that land for the space of 
two leagues {leucarum) beyond the place where the earl of Gloucester 
had erected {firmavit) the castle concerning which the dispute is, 
and robbed the land and carried the stolen goods to the earl of 
Gloucester's land. They also say that William, Richard and Stephen 
with many others, both horsemen and footmen, of the men of the 
earl of Gloucester, with the said banner displayed, on Monday before 
the feast of St. Barnabas next following, entered the earl of Hereford's 
land of Breghennok for the space of five leagues, and robbed the land, 
and carried the stolen goods to the land of the earl of Gloucester. 
They also say that the said William, Richard and Stephen together 
with many others, both footmen and horsemen, with the said banner 

e22 



338 CALENDAR OF WELSH ROLLS. 



1291. Membrane 5 — cont. 

displayed, on Monday before St. Andrew, in the 19th year, entered 
the earl of Hereford's land of Braghennok for the space of seven leagues, 
and robbed it, and carried the stolen goods to the land of the earl 
of Gloucester. They also say that the robbers and thieves 
(eakertores) of the land of Morgannou have on many occasions entered 
the aforesaid land of Breghennok, and robbed it, and carried the stolen 
goods to the land of Morgannou, but they say that William, Richard 
and Stephen were not then present. And upon being asked whether the 
said robbers had slain any of the men of the earl of Hereford, or had 
burnt any of the houses of the said men, or had robbed any churches 
in the land of the said earl, they say that the said thieves 
(eskettores) burned a house in the land of Bregheimok at Tiraph', and 
broke a church called Pennyderyn, and took and carried away the 
chalice and other goods whatsoever there found. They also say 
that the said WiUiam, Richard and Stephen with their accomplices 
and the said thieves (eskettores) slew many of the men of the earl 
of Hereford within the land of Breghennok, but they are ignorant 
of the number. They also say that the total of the oxen, cows, 
heifers {juvencarum) and beasts (averiorum) of this kind robbed is 1,070 ; 
the total of horses, plough-horses {jumentorum) and colts stolen is 50 ; 
they are wholly ignorant of the number of sheep {bidentum), swine 
and goats. Being asked if the said robberies were done by the order 
and with the knowledge of the earl of Gloucester and if any of the 
goods stolen came to the profit of the earl, they say that the earl of 
Gloucester knew well of the three robberies made with the banner 
displayed, and that he had a third of the goods thus stolen, as it befits 
the lords to have in time of war in accordance with the use {visum) 
and custom of the march. Being asked if the said J. de Crepping 
was present at the said robberies or consented to them, they say 
that he was not present in person, but that he thoroughly (bene) 
consented to it and had his part of the goods thus stolen, and likewise 
that he sent certain of the robbers. who went out with the baimer 
from his bailiwick. And they say that the aforesaid John, WilUam, 
Richard and Stephen, the bailiffs of the earl of Gloucester, had their 
part of all the goods stolen by both the thieves {eskettores) and 
by the other robbers, except the goods found in the church of 
Pennyderyn, because neither the earl of Gloucester nor any of his 
bailiffs knew of the robbery committed in the church. And the 
jurors tax the damages of the earl of Hereford sustained by reason 
of this wasting of his land and the impoverishment of his people 
at 1001. 

Afterwards, on Monday after the Nativity, in the 19th year, at 
Aumbresbur[y], the said earl came before the king and his council. 
And because the king willed that judgment should be proceeded to 
on the inquisition taken at Landou before the bishop of Ely and his 
fellows, according to what shall be just, and also because he is given 
to understand that after the inquisition had been taken at Landou, 
where the earl of Hereford, who was present, and also the men of 
the earl of Gloucester, were inhibited by the bishop and his fellows 
that none of them should make raids {curreret) or permit raids to be 
made upon the tother, that both of the said earls and their men had 
invaded one another's lands, paying no respect to the inhibition 
previously made to them by the king in parliament at Westminster 
in Hilary Term, to wit for eight days before the Purification in the 



20 EDWARD, I. 339 



1291. Membrane 5 — cont. 

18th year, as to which deed, if such contempt ajid such disobedience 
have been made contrary to the inhibition, etc. the king, wishing 
to be more fully certified, caused the said earls to be adjourned to 
be before him at Bergeveny in three weeks from Michaelmas to receive 
justice upon this. And moreover, because this matter specially 
touches the king, his crown and dignity, wherefore it is required in 
any event for many reasons that it shall be and ought to be verified 
with all the speed possible, the justice of West Wales and in like manner 
the sheriffs of Hereford and Gloucester and the bailiffs of Edmund, 
the king's brother, at Monmouth (Monemuta) and at the Three Castles 
are ordered to cause knights and other free and lawful men from their 
bailiwicks to come at the aforesaid term to hear and do the king's 
order in this behalf. 

At which day at Bergeveny, to wit in three weeks from Michaelmas, 
the earls and likewise knights and free men of their bailiwicks came 
before the king and his council. And the earl of Hereford being asked 
how he will acquit himself of this that, after he had been iriiibited 
by the king in the parliament aforesaid from invading the land of the 
earl of Gloucester, from inflicting upon him or his men of Morgannou 
wrong, annoyance or grievance, and likewise after he had been again 
inhibited by the bishop of Ely and his fellows at Landou, he had 
afterwards attempted to do something (nichil) in the premises : he 
says that he is prepared to acquit himself thereof in all ways, as the 
king shall cause it to be decided (consider and') by his council. 

And as to the earl of Gloucester, as the king understands {attendit) 
that the trespasses charged upon the earl and committed, as it is said,- 
before the taking of the inquisition before the bishop and his fellows 
at Landou were sufficiently proved by the inquisition, whereby it seems 
that it is not necessary at present to address (alloqui) the earl again 
in this matter. The said earl, being asked how he will acquit himself 
of this that after the inquisition aforesaid had been taken at Landou, 
to wit from Wednesday before St. Gregory, in the 19th year, until 
now, he had inflicted or permitted to be inflicted any {nullam) annoyance, 
wrong or grievance upon the earl of Hereford or his men in the land 
of Brakennok, contrary to the inhibition aforesaid : he says that 
from the said day until now he has inflicted, or has caused to be 
inflicted no annoyance, wrong or grievance upon the earl of Hereford 
or his men in the land of Brakennok, and he is quite willing {bene vult) 
that this shall be enquired according to what the king shall decide 
{consider averil). And as to the inquisition taken before the bishop 
and his fellows, he prays the king specially that as he (the earl) was 
not present when the inquisition was taken* that he may hear the 
inquisition with the process, and it is granted to him by the king 
of his especial grace. After he had heard the inquisition with the 
process, the earl prayed that it might please the king that the evidence 
(raciones) that he has to propound against the inquisition shall be 
heard before the king himself, and they shall be allowed to him after- 
wards according to what shall be just. And therefore he was told to 
say in, this behalf whatsoever should seem expedient to him, etc. 
And the earl says that the writ by which the inquisition was taken 
is called a ' scire facias ' and was taken (sumehatur) in chancery as an 
original [writ] ; and whereas hitherto according to law and the usual 

* Membrane 4 begins here.

1291. Membrane 4 — cont. 

custom suoh a writ was always wont to be made upon some record 
and process previously had in the king's court as a writ of judgment, 
and ought not to be taken or sued out of chancery as an original writ, 
he prays that by the process had or by the inquisition taken upon 
such a writ improperly conceived and formed, no prejudice or grievance 
ought to be done to him unduly. He says also that the aforesaid 
inquisition is an inquisition taken ex officio, which ought not and cannot 
bind him or any of his men, since they never put themselves on the 
inquisition. He says similarly that Richard, sometime earl of 
Gloucester, in the time of the late king by the sending {missione) of 
the late king, and he himself in like manner in the present king's 
time went many times by the king's order in his army against the 
men of the provinces of Kardygan and Kermerdyn, warring against 
them and attacking them and committing many other evils and 
damages upon them and principally for the king, slaying the fathers, 
kinsmen and relatives of those who were in the inquisition as mortal 
enemies of the king, wherefore it seems to him that an inquisition 
taken by such jurors, who are naturally {merito) and manifestly his 
enemies and have always been for the reason aforesaid, ought not 
to injure him. The earl of Gloucester beseeches the king, because 
he denies (defendit) precisely all the contempt and disobedience and 
whatsoever is against the king's peace or his crown and dignity, that 
he may confess the truth as to the premises, concerning which he 
submits himself, after the truth shall be known, to the king's discretion 
henceforth. And he says that it is true that he was inhibited in the 
aforesaid parliament of St. Hilary, to wit eight days before the 
Purification, in the 18th year of the king's reign, at Westminster, 
from inflicting any grievance upon the earl of Hereford and his men 
of Brakennok, but because his men of Morgannou, who were assembled 
throughout diverse places and wastes {sparsa) in this county to go 
against the land of Brakennok, in accordance with what was then 
lawful to them according to the usage and custom of the March, could 
not be well warned between the said day of the inhibition made to him 
until the said Friday when they set out, etc. by reason of the shortness 
of the time, it seems to him that the shortness of the time and the 
distance of the place sufficiently excuse him in this behalf, etc. And 
as to the expedition (exitum) that the men of Morgannou are supposed 
to have made on Monday before the feast of St. Barnabas following, 
he says that at that time the land of Morganou was in the king's seisin, 
wherefore if any evil was done at that time to any one, it ought not to 
be imputed to him. And as to the third expedition that the men of 
Morgannou are supposed to have made, to wit on Monday before 
St. Andrew, he says that the king well remembers how he had enfeoffed 
the earl and Joan, his wife, before that day of all the land of Morganou, 
by which feoffment the earl together with Joan took a new estate, 
wherefore he understands (inlouUt) and believes that he was wholly 
absolved from the inhibition prox'iously made to him as to the premises 
by the admission of Huch new estate ; wherefore, since no inhibition 
was at any time afterwards made to him anew, it seems to him that 
he has in no way offended in this behalf by reason of which he ought 
to be challenged or impeached (inpeacari). And the said earl of 
Gloucester being twkod if he w isli to say anything more at this time 
as to this matter, says that it seems to him that he has said 
sufficient.

And because both earls offerred acquittance on both sides of all 
manner of trespasses charged against them as the king shall decide 
{consideravit) of the contempt and disobedience against the king 
committed by them at divers times according to which the excesses 
and trespasses were committed during (juxta) the time above limited, 
it is agreed by the king and his council that the truth of the matter 
shall be distinctly and openly enquired into by a good jury (patriam) : 
therefore let the inquisition proceed in form aforesaid, so that the 
king may decree by his council what justice requires, according to 
what shall be found by the inquisition and also according to what is 
propounded and alleged above by the earl of Gloucester. 

And the jury, elected in the presence of the parties and by their 
consent, say upon their oath as to the earl of Hereford that after the 
bishop of Ely and his fellows prohibited in their recess {in recessu suo) 
the said earls from entering the land of one another by force and 
arms to commit any evil therein, the men of the earl of Gloucester, 
on Thursday after St. Petri ad Vinoula last, drove certain of their 
cattle (averia) to pasture in a certain plot of land (placea) as to which 
there is a dispute between the earls, and when the bailifEs and men 
of the earl of Hereford perceived this they went out with horses and 
arms to take the said cattle, and when the men of the earl of Gloucester 
perceived this, they withdrew themselves with their cattle into the land 
of the earl of Gloucester, and the baihffs and men of the earl of Hereford, 
to wit John Porpooynt {sic), his bailiff and constable of Brekennok, 
with a great following {cum multa sequela sua) followed them beyond 
the land in dispute to the land of the earl of Gloucester, and slew 
certain of the earl of Gloucester's men and took their cattle and drove 
the cattle to the castle of Brekennok, the earl of Hereford knowing 
nothing of this and not ordering this action, but when he knew of it, 
he ordered his bailiffs and men there to release the cattle that they 
had taken, after taking security, for the making of amends for their 
having been depastured in his land. They also say that the earl of 
Gloucester did not order his men to depasture the said plot, or to go 
thither, and that he knew nothing of it, but they say that the cattle 
remained in the hands of the earl of Hereford and his bailiffs aforesaid, 
and that the bailiffs killed and ate a part of them, and that certain of 
them still remain and are in the custody of the bailiffs of the said castle. 

They also say that, on Monday after the Assumption following, 
certain men of the earl of Gloucester entered from his land by night 
the land of the earl of Hereford as robbers, and when the earl of 
Hereford's men understood this by the raising of clamour they gathered 
together and chased {refugaverunt) the robbers to the land of the 
eari of Gloucester for three leagues and rescued their cattle, and stole 
certain other cattle in the same land and drove them into the land 
of the earl of Hereford, and they thus still remain in the hands of 
John Porpoynt, John Deveroys, Philip Seys, Howel Vauhan, Howel 
ap Trahan, who took the cattle with their young {sequela). And 
they say that the earl of Hereford knew nothing of the said deed, 
and did not order it to be done, and did not accept {acceftavit) it, 
but he ordered, immediately upon its coming to his knowledge, his 
men whom he understood were guilty of this deed to be put under 
plevin and mainprise, and there they are still. And they also say 
that the earl of Gloucester knew nothing of the deed of his men, and 
did not order it or accept it. 



342 CALENDAR OF WELSH ROLLS. 



1291. Membrane 4 — cont. 

Moreover they say that the earl of Hereford, after the inhibition 
made to him by the king, caused proclamation to be made publicly 
in markets, churches and in other usual places and inMbited his 
men that no one should enter the land of the earl of Gloucester to do 
harm therein. And as to the complaints put forward in the earl of 
Gloucester's schedule, they say that certain acts and trespasses were 
committed by the robbers named therein, but not by the order of the 
earl of Hereford, nor with his knowledge or consent, and that nothing 
came from them to his profit or use. But they say that certain of his 
bailiffs and forensic men knew of some of the deeds named in the 
schedules, and had some part therein, as is afore said. 

And as to the earl of Gloucester they say that neither the earl after 
the return {recessum) of the bishop and his fellows nor any one by 
his order or with his knowledge or consent entered the lands of the 
earl of Hereford to do evil in them, and that the earl of Gloucester 
after the said day did nothing and caused nothing to be done in contempt 
or disobedience of the king, as is charged against him. And as to 
the complaints put forward by the earl of Hereford in a schedule, 
they say that some of the trespasses were committed upon him and 
after the return of the bishop, etc. but they say that these were not 
committed by the earl of Gloucester or his bailiffs or by his order, but 
by unknown robbers and men of his lands. 

[The jurors] being questioned whether the robbers who they say are of 
the lands of the earls and who committed the trespasses and robberies 
aforesaid are of the household of either of the earls, in their service 
{in [objsequio) or of their mainpast or of their maintenance (advocacione), 
so that the earls or either of them took anything from the said thieves or 
any of them, or [if the thieves] committed these things by their main- 
tenance, or if any of the goods thus stolen came to the use or profit of 
the earls, they say that certain of the robbers are coimnon thieves and 
vagabonds and have not anything except from larceny, and that 
certain of them are resident in the lands of the said eaxls and are 
householders, but they are entirely ignorant of their names, but they 
say expressly that neither one nor the other of the earls knew of the 
action of the said thieves, ordered it or accepted it, and that nothing 
of the goods stolen by the said thieves came to the use of the 
earls, etc. 

And as it is found by this inquisition that John Porpoynt, constable 
of Breghinouk,' and John de Evereys, Philip Sheys, Howel Vaohan, 
Owel ap Trahan, with a multitude of horsemen and footmen, by force 
and arms went out of the land of Bregheimok' upon hearing the rumor 
that the men of Morganou came with their beasts to depasture the 
land in dispute, who fled with the cattle toward their own parts 
upon perceiving the coming of the constable and tlie others, whom 
the constables and the others immediately following overtook two 
leaeues within the land of Morganou, and slew certain of them and 
took the aforesaid cattle and drove the cattle to the castle of 
Breghennok ; whereupon they afterwards informed the earl of Hereford, 
their lord, that the cattle had been taken in the land in dispute, which 
capture made in the land in dispute the earl ratified and accepted, 
and ordered that if the men of Morganou wished to replevy their 
Qattle and to make amends for the damage committed, they should 
then have the cattle replevied. From this it evidently seemed 
{censetur) that by exacting amends in this case he occupied and 



20 EDWARD I. 343 



1291. Membrane 4 — cont. 

appropriated to himself of his own act contrary to the inhibition 
the said land, which he asserted had been previously usurped from 
him {swper ipsum occupatam) and of which he has not yet obtained 
seisin by judgment of the king's court, but the plea in that matter 
is pending undecided in the king's court before him between the said 
earl and the earl of Gloucester, and in this the earl of Hereford has 
manifestly offended against the king's prohibition, especially as the 
plea is still pending of the land that is the origin and occasion of all 
the evil, such as homicides, burnings, and robberies committed one 
against the other, and also because the men of the earl of Hereford 
slew some of the beasts aforesaid thus impounded, which was unlawful 
in this case and against all rights, and also because all these things 
were done very boldly and presumptuously by the earl and men of 
Breghennok, believing that they could escape by their liberty of the 
March from the penalty and peril that they would deservedly have 
incurred if they had committed such excess «lsewhere in the realm 
outside the March, and thus the lord of the liberty must be punished 
both in the matter that afforded to him and his men a rash boldness 
in offending and also in his own person by reason of the contempt and 
disobedience done to the king contrary to the inhibition aforesaid : 
it is decided {consideratwm) that the earl shall be committed to gaol 
and that his liberty of Breghennok shall be taken into the king's 
hands, etc. and that in like manner John Perpoynt and the others 
shall be taken, etc. 

And as to the earl of Gloucester, after understanding and weighing 
his challenges, exceptions, allegations and excuses, and after they 
had been diligently discussed with the greatest deliberation by the 
king and his council, it is answered to his first evidence (racionem), 
to wit to this that the writ called ' scire facias ' is challenged, which 
writ is of right and ought to be a writ of judgment issuing from a 
process previously had in the king's court and from a record of the 
rolls, as it is said, it seems to the king's council that since it is specially 
incumbent upon the king for the preservation of his peace and for the 
safe-guarding of the people committed to him, so soon as news came 
to him of so great a trespass committed against his inhibition, the truth 
thereof ought to be inquired forthwith by all ways by which it may 
be most speedily done without injury to right, and by this writ, by 
reason of the exhibition of speedy justice to every person needing 
it, there appears to be a more speedy remedy than by any other writ 
as yet provided or formed in this case, for the avoidance and hindrance 
of intolerable evils, such as homicide, sacrilege, burnings, robberies 
and other enormities that might have arisen from the case in addition 
to (preter) evils previously committed, unless a speedy remedy were 
provided in this behalf, and also because the king, who is debtor of 
justice to all and singular of his realm, could not in this case defer 
{dissimulasse), without inflicting injury upon his crown, granting a 
writ by which he might come most speedily to the knowledge of the 
truth of the matter aforesaid when it was demanded, it is decreed 
by the council that the said writ is necessary and reasonable in this 
and in similar cases. 

Moreover, whereas the earl of Gloucester asserted that the writ 
aforesaid lies in a case where the process and record had been upon the 
plea as a writ of judgment, it seems to the king's council that the 
king, from whom all ministers subjected to him have record, is a 



344 CALENDAR OF WELSH ROLLS. 



1291. Membrane 4 — cont. 

superlative and much more arduous record excelling all his ministers 
and the processes and record of their rolls. And also before the 
king inhibits, he looks round and considers by his inner judgment 
for the common benefit in order to avoid worse that may arise and 
follow from an evil beginning unless an inhibition intervene, and 
thus the inhibition proceeds from the premeditated judgment of the 
king's conscience for the good of peace, against which judgment 
if any presume to attempt aught, the more speedily and shortly 
due process may be had, in order that the truth in the matter may be 
proved against the oSender in this case, so much the more honourable 
it is for the king's majesty and the more useful and necessary for the 
realm and people, wherefore it seems in this behalf that the inhibition 
proceeds properly out of the judgment from which the said writ called 
' scire facias ' may be duly taken, more especially as the matter aforesaid 
touches the king, his crown and dignity more specially in this ca«e 
than any other certain person; wherefore, since the king recollects 
and remembers that the plea upon the complaint shown to him was 
pending lately in his court before him between the aforesaid earls, 
wherefore he inhibited them from raiding {curreret) one another or 
from invading one another's lands, and upon this it was afterwards 
shown by the earl of Hereford that the earl of Gloucester and his 
men of Morgannou, in contempt and disobedience of ^he king, invaded 
the earl of Hereford's land of Breghennok, committing homicides, 
burnings, and other excesses contrary to the inhibition aforesaid, 
the king could lawfully and duly order the said writ to be made in 
such a solemn record as of his own record. 

As to this that the earl of Gloucester says that the aforesaid 
inquisition taken before the bishop and his fellows ought not to bind 
him or injure him because he had never put himself upon that 
inquisition, but it was taken as of office : it is true that the earl did 
not put himself upon that inquisition and nevertheless the inquisition 
is not an inquisition of office, but an inquisition that binds the parties 
and decides between them according to what has been found* by the 
inquisition, for the taking of which process was by the writ 
approved above, and by which writ the sheriff of Berks caused the 
said earl and the Justice of West Wales caused the earl's men aforesaid 
to be summoned to come at a suitable time before the bishop and 
his fellows if they wished, so that the inquisition was taken through 
the default of the earl and his men, which default is deservedly to be 
imputed to the earl and his men aforesaid and to no one else, but it 
is an inquisition of office when any one makes plaint of damage done 
to him in a park or fishpond or elsewhere by men unknown, and the 
king upon this causes an inquiry to be made at the suit of the plaintifi 
as to what malefactors committed such trespass, and when any certain 
persons are charged {rectate) therewith by such inquisition, such an 
inquisition is an inquisition of office and is a sort of (quasi) accusation. 
Moreover, as the king ordered the bishop and his fellows by his letters 
patent to proceed to the taking of the inquisition even if either of the 
earls did not appear, it seems to the king's council that the bishop and 
his fellows proceeded well and rightly in this behalf, and that it might 
well be proceeded to judgment upon such an inquisition in this case 
against the earl and his men who were convicted by the inquisition, 
and also in a similar case against others convicted in like manner of 
a like trespass. As to what the earl says that the inquisition was 



20 EDWAED I. 346 



1291. Membrane 4 — cont. 

taken by his mortal enemies, wherefore it seemed to him that it ought 
not to injure him, it is answered to him on this point that it is not 
the custom in the king's court that when an inquisition, jury or assize 
has been taken by the default of a party, which default always requires 
a penalty and especially in such a case, the absent party cannot and 
ought not to be admitted to challenge any persons of the jurors. 

And whereas the earl has above prayed the king that, after knowing 
the truth through the earl's confession as to the expeditions (exitihus) 
made by the men of Morganou within the land of Brakenok, the king 
will decree afterwards as to that action according to his discretion, 
and after having heard and understood the confession of the earl, 
it seems to the king's council that the earl cannot have any excuse 
by reason of the shortness of time or the distance of the place as to 
the first expedition made by the men of Morganou on Friday after 
the Purification, in the 18th year, inasmuch as he received the 
inhibition eight days before the Purification, whereupon the day- 
journeys {dietis), the time and the number of the days being calculated 
by the king and his council, it is clearly found that there was sufficient 
time within which his men of Morgannou could have been suitably 
warned of the inhibition, if he had wished. 

To this also that the earl as to the expedition made on Monday 
before St. Barnabas, in the said year, says that on that day and for a 
long time before it the land of Morganou was in the king's hand and 
seisin, wherefore if the men thereof made an excursion (exissent) and 
raid {equitacionem) within the land of Brakennok, it ought not to be 
imputed to the earl : it appears plainly to the king by inspection of 
the roUs of his chancery, the dates of writs, and by other evidences 
that the land of Morganou was fully restored and rendered to the earl 
of Gloucester by the king nine days before the raid, wherefore this 
deed is manifestly considered to have been done in the earl's time 
and not in the lang's time. 

As to this also that the -earl understands {attendit) that he is 
discharged of the third raid made on Monday before St. Andrew, 
in the 19th year, because he obtained a new estate jointly with Joan, 
his wife, of the aforesaid land of Morganou by a feoffment made to 
him thereof by the king, wherefore the earl believed that in this case 
he was fully absolved from the inhibition sent to him previously, 
it is answered that the inhibition previously made to him in full 
parliament holds and binds always during the earl's life until it should 
please the king to revoke it. For the inhibition was made upon the 
person of the earl and not upon his land, wherefore after hearing the 
verdict of the inquisition in which the earl of Gloucester put himself 
here before the king, by which it is found (convictum) that the earl 
after the inquisition had been taken before the bishop and his fellows 
at Landou committed no trespass in the land of Breghennok upon the 
earl of Hereford or his men contrary to the prohibition aforesaid, 
it is decided (consideratum) that the earl of Gloucester as to this shall 
go quit. And because it is found by the inquisition taken before the 
bishop and his fellows at Landou and now approved by the king and 
his council that the earl of Gloucester as to the said three raids and 
expeditions made with the banner of the earl's arms displayed cannot , 
in any way excuse himself as to the premises by the allegations pro- 
pounded by him in order to excuse him by the evidence (rationibua) 
aforesaid, but rather that the earl and his men by the aforesaid 



346 CALENDAR OF WELSH ROLLS. 



1291. Membrane 4 — cotU. 

approved inquisition are ""convicted sufficiently of the trespasses 
aforesaid. And also because all these things were done by the earl 
and his men of Morganou most boldly and presumptuously, believing 
that they could escape by their liberty of the March from the penalty 
and peril that they would deservedly have incurred if they had com- 
mitted such an excess elsewhere in England outside the March, and 
the lord of the liberty is to be so punished as well in this matter, 
which afforded to him and his men a rash audacity of offending, as in 
his own person by reason of the contempt and disobedience committed 
against the king contrary to the inhibition aforesaid, it is decided 
(consideratum) that the said earl and likewise John de Crepping', who 
is present, shall be committed to gaol. And the said William de 
Valers, Richard le Flemyng, and Stephen de Capenore shall be 
arrested (capiantur), and also the earl's liberty of Glammorgan shall 
be taken into the king's hands, etc. 

Afterwards, after the earl and John had been committed to prison 
and had remained therein during the king's will, Edmund, the king's 
brother, William de Valencia, the king's uncle, Henry de Lacy, earl 
of Lincoln, and John de Hasting' came at the petition of the earl of 
Gloucester and besought the king that they might by his special grace 
mainpern to have the earl's body before the king at his pleasure to 
hear and do his will. 

And also Reginald de Greiy, Robert Tibotot, Robert son of Walter, 
and Walter de Bello Campo besought the king in the same way at the 
petition of the earl of Hereford that they might mainpern to have his 
body before the king in form aforesaid. 

So that afterwards it is granted of the king's especial grace that 
the aforesaid earls shall be delivered to the mainpernors aforesaid, 
so that they shall have their bodies before the king and his council 
at Westminster on the morrow of the Epiphany next in form aforesaid. 
And be it known that the said liberties of the earls, which are taken 
into the king's hands by the judgments aforesaid, shall be replevied 
to the said earls, to wit to each of them his liberty, until the term 
aforesaid. 

Moreover, the earl of Gloucester besought the king to grant and 
deliver to him the body of the said John de Crepping', to have before 
the king at the term aforesaid, and also that he may mainpern the 
bodies of the aforesaid William de Valers, Richard le Flemyng, and 
Stephen de Capenore, so that he shall have their bodies before the 
king and his council at the aforesaid term to hear the king's will. 

And in like manner the earl of Hereford mainpemed to have the 
bodies of John Perpoynt, John de Everoys, PhiUp Seys, Howel ap 
Vauhan, and Howel ap Trahan, his men aforesaid, before the king 
and his council to do and receive what the king shall cause to be 
ordained by his council. 

At which day before the king and his council at London, in the 
house of Otto de Grandisono outside the king's palace at Westminster, 
the aforesaid earls came and in like manner Edmund, the king's brother, 
Henry de Lacy, earl of Lincoln, and John de Hasting', the main- 
pernors of the earl of Gloucester, but William de Valencia, one of 
the earl's mainpernors, did not come. There also came Robert 
Tibotot, Robert son of Walter, the mainpernors of the earl of 

* Membrane 3 begins here. 



20 EDWARD I. 347 



1291. Membrane 3 — cont. 

Hereford, but his other mainpernors did not come. And the said 
mainpernors who came offerred the said earls to the king to hear and 
do the king's will according to the form above-written and in the form 
in which they had mainperned them. And in like manner both the 
earls brought and offerred their men aforesaid, whom they main- 
perned as aforesaid, to do and hear the king's will and to receive 
what the king by his council should cause to be ordained. 

And because the king, being hindered by various and arduous 
affairs, was not yet advised (consultus) upon those things that he 
should cause to be ordained and done in the premises by his council, 
of his especial grace he delivered the body of the earl of Gloucester 
to the said Edmund, the king's brother, Henry de Lacy, earl of 
Lincoln, and John de Hasting', and also the body of the earl of 
Hereford to Robert Tibotot and Robert son of Walter, so that they 
have the bodies there before the king on Friday after the Epiphany 
at the king's will, to hear and do, etc. as is aforesaid. Which main- 
pernors mainperned the earls under the same form. And "also of the 
king's speciq,! grace the said liberties were replevied to the earls until 
the said day and in form aforesaid. And be it l^nown that the 
aforesaid men of the earl of Gloucester are delivered to the marshal 
in the meantime for custody, because the earl would not mainpern 
them. And the aforesaid men of the earl of Hereford are delivered 
to him under mainprise until the said day, because the earl has 
prayed strongly that he might mainpern them. 

Afterwards, on Wednesday after the said morrow of the Epiphany, 
the earl of Gloucester came in his own person before the king and his 
council at the place aforesaid, and besought strongly and humbly 
that the king would grant of his especial grace that he might mainpern 
his said men now in the marshal's custody, so that he shall have their 
bodies before the king and his council on Friday aforesaid at the 
king's will to hear and do and receive what the king shall cause to be 
ordained by his council. And of the king's especial grace they are 
delivered in form aforesaid, etc. 

Afterwards at that day the mainpernors mainperned the aforesaid 
earls to have their bodies before the king there on Thursday after the 
octaves of the Epiphany to hear and do the king's will. And in like 
manner the earls mainperned their men aforesaid to have them at 
the aforesaid term in form aforesaid. 

At which day the earls came by the mainprise aforesaid and 
offerred themselves as ready to do and receive as it should please the 
king for their bodies and for their liberties in their lands aforesaid 
and as he would do for them. And because the earls submitted 
themselves in form aforesaid entirely to the king's will so that he may 
do what he please concerning them and their liberties, the king 
hereupon, wishing to do in th
