Et Willelmus Botevileyn et Margeria in propriis A.D. 1840. personis suis veniunt, et Willelmus pro se et Margeria elicit quod ipsi non possunt dedicere praedictam transgressionem, &c., et praedicta Margeria dicit quod, ubi ipsa attachiatur ut uxor praedicti Willelmi, ipsa modo non est uxor ejusdem Willelmi, tamen bene cognovit quod ipsa aliquo tempore fuit uxor prsedicti Willelmi, sed dicit quod postea, scilicet die Lunae proxima ante Purificationem Beatae Mariae anno regni regis nunc tertio-decimo, apud Derteford, coram Episcopo Roffensi, divortium inter ipsam et prsedictum Willelmum erat celebratum, et hoc parata est verificare ubi et quando &c., et ex quo ipsa nominatur in billa, &c., ut uxor praedicti Willelmi, petit judicium de billa, &c.

Et praedictus Robertus dicit quod divortium nunquam erat celebratum inter praefatum Willelmum et praefatam Margeriam coram praefato Episcopo, prout eadem Margeria dicit. Et hoc paratus est verificare, &c. Et praedicta Margeria similiter. Et, quia hujusmodi causae cognitio ad forum spectat ecclesiasticum, &c., ideo mandatum est Episcopo Roffensi, loci Diocesano, quod, convocatis, &c., diligenter inde inquirat, &c., et quid inde, &c., dominum Regem certificet in Octabis Sancti Michaelis, ubicunque, &c. Et super hoc Adam Somerson, Johannes de Cheventon, Magister Willelmus de la Marche, de comitatu Suffblciai, manuceperunt praedictam Margeriam habendi corpus ejus coram domino Rege ad praefatum terminum, &c., videlicet, quilibet eorum corpus pro corpore, &c. Idem dies datus est praedicto Willelmo de audiendo judicium suum, &c. Ad quem diem venit coram domino Rege praedictus Robertus in propria persona sua, et praedictus Episcopus Roffensis sic retornavit:—Satis nobis constat quod nullum divortium inter dictos Willelmum

Margery of whom mention is made in this writ, and it does not appear unto us that any such divorce has been pronounced before any our Commissary.—And the aforesaid William and Margery, being solemnly called on the fourth day of the plea, come not. And thereupon the same Robert prays judgment, &c, for that the aforesaid Margery does not now pursue that which heretofore in Court here she offered to verify, and that the same Margery, together with the aforesaid William Botevileyn her husband, be held as convicted of the trespass aforesaid, &c. And thereupon a day is given unto the aforesaid Robert to hear his judgment thereof before the Lord the King on the Octaves of St. Hilary, wheresoever, &c, in the same state as now, &c, because the Court is not yet advised, &c. At which day comes the aforesaid Robert in his own person, and the aforesaid William and Margery come not. And because the Court here is not yet advised as to giving judgment, &c, a day is given over to the aforesaid Robert to hear his judgment before the King in three weeks after Easter day, wheresoever, &c, in the same state as now. At which day, &c.

Et super hoc idem Robertus petit judicium, &c de eo quod preedicta Margeria modo non prosequitur illud quod alias in Curia hie praetendit verificare, et quod eadem Margeria, simul cum praedicto Willelmo Botevyleyu viro suo, de transgressione praedicta habeatur tanquam convicta, &c. Et super hoc dies datus est praefato Roberto de audiendo inde judicio suo coram domino Rege in Octabis Sancti Hillarii, ubicunque, &c, in eodem statu quod nunc, &c, eo quod Curia nondum avisatur, &c. Ad quem diem venit prsedictus Robertus in propria persona sua, et praedicti Willelmus et Margeria non veniunt. Et quia Curia hie nondum avisatur ad judicium reddendum, &c, dies datus est ulterius praefato Roberto de audiendo judicio suo coram Rege a die Paschae in tres septimanas, ubicunque, &c, in statu quo nunc.
