A.D. 1340. first point, a record falls sufficiently within the cognisance of the jurors, for if I plead against you in bar of assise that I previously recovered the same tenements against you by assise, &c, and you say that they are not the same tenements, that can be tried by assise, and that lies within their cognisance.—Parning. The words of a writ of Assise are "complained, &c. that wrongfully "and without judgment," so the writ supposes that the Assise can be cognisant of the judgment. And as to your assertion that the record does not aid us, the Assise has served our purpose; judgment, &c.—Scharshulle. This record is of your own suit, • and by such a record you could not in person have pleaded in bar, and even if you had not produced the record we should not have given judgment until we had seen the record; and I cannot see how a record relating to tenements in one vill can make good an entry into tenements in another vill; and your record proves D. and W. to be different vills by that word jwnsta, &c. Wherefore the Court adjudges that the plaintiff do recover, &c, according to the view &c, and his damages taxed &c. and that you be in mercy.

Detinue of (12). § Note that upon a writ of Detinue of chattels, chattels. ^ s]ieep, £he defendants said that they did not

detain.—Basset charged the Inquest &c. And (said he) in case you find the detinue, tell us the value and the damages.—The detinue was found, and the value of each sheep was 18cZ.—Wherefore it was adjudged that the plaintiff should recover the sheep, value so much, and his damages taxed by the Inquest at 20s.

Detinue of Upon a writ of Detinue of chattels it was found by verdict that chattels, the defendant had detained one hundred sheep, as the plaintiff had counted, of the value of 100 «., to the damage &c.—Oayneford said that some of the sheep had died while the writ was pending. —Basset gave judgment for the plaintiff that he should recover the sheep, as of the value of 100 s., and his damages taxed by the Inquest, &c.

Waryn is himself the Sheriff, and we pray a writ to the Coroners.—And this he prayed for the plaintiff.—HilLary.

Debt. Executors brought a writ of Debt.—The defendant produced

Account. (15.) § Account against a receiver.—Thorpe shewed how he accounted before certain auditors assigned by the plaintiff, so that the plaintiff himself had the tallies and rolls by which he rendered the account; judgment whether he ought to account again for the same matter.

Judgment of the writ, for heretofore, to wit, such a day and year, you yourselves brought a like writ against us, upon which writ we vouched to warranty J., the son of R de Morley, who was under age, and we prayed &c, and we had the voucher, and the parol demurred, &c. And we say that he is still under age, so this writ is purchased while the other is pending; judgment.—Schardelowe. Though it were as you say, he might elect to have a re-summons or a new original; and you are not put to any mischief, for, if you say what is true, your answer will be saved to you; wherefore, &c.— W. Thorpe. If the parol had demurred through the removal of the Bench, or through the demise of the King, so that there had been no certainty given as to the time it had to wait, that which you say would, perhaps, bind us; but here there is certainty in respect of the time limited, until which time the parol was to demur; wherefore, &c.— Schardelowe. Plead something else. — W. Thorpe
