TRINITY TERM IN THE FOURTEENTH YEAR OF
AD. 1340. (!•) § Margery de Totenhale brought an assise of Assise of Novel Disseisin. The plaint was for 40 acres of land J?Pve!. and 10s. of rent. One Henry Wiriot answered as tenant, and said that there were only 16 acres of land and 6,s. 8d. of rent, and as to these he said that he entered by the feoffment of J. Totenhale without tort.—The Assise said that the land put in their view consists of 40 acres of land, and they said that one Mabel, the mother of Margery who brings the assise, was seised of 30 acres and also of the rent for which the plaint is made, and one Juliana held the other 10 acres of the said Mabel for term of life, and that Mabel enfeoffed her daughter Margery the present plaintiff of the 201 acres and of the rent, and granted the reversion of the same 10 acres to the same Margery. On that grant Juliana attorned. And afterwards Margery who brings the assise went into a foreign land, and Juliana died, and J. who is son of a brother of this same Margery, by the advice and with the consent of Henry Wiriote, entered upon all the tenements and the rent, and within six days after his entry enfeoffed this same Henry.—And note that J. was not named in the writ.—Scharshulle (to the Assise). Did he take any profits before he enfeoffed Henry ?—The

Juliana 16, and the number of which Margery was enfeoffed 30. See the report of the same case printed next below.

A.D. 1340. Assise said that he did not.—Scharshulle. Did Margery, after her return into this country, or any one for her, make any contention as to the 10 acres ?—The Assise. Yes, sir; they are holden in bondage, and some of the bondsmen wished to attorn to Margery when she demanded her rent, and some who sided with Henry did not wish to do so.—Scharshulle. Did Henry disturb her so that she could not have the rent ?—Tlte Assise. Yes; and as to the rest, so that she could not enter. And they said that it seemed to them that it was a disseisin. —Scharshulle. So it seems to us.—Wherefore AldeBURgh adjudged that the plaintiff should recover seisin, and her damages.—And note that the recovery, be the plaint for more or for less, shall in assise be according to the view of the jurors, so that the plaintiff may by the making of a larger view recover more than he demands, and contrariwise.—And note that it seemed to the Court that the first entry was a disseisin effected by Henry, that is to say, of so much as the plaintiff had obtained by the feoffment of her mother, for J. entered with his consent and freshly enfeoffed him, so that by law all may be adjudged to be his act.
