A.D. 1340. in jaw. and y then tho bastard re-ousts him and he brings tho assise, and tho bastard pleads in bar as before, it is sufficient for him to show that his possession was rightful so that the ouster was a disseisin, for if he shows his possession to be rightful he defeats the cause of the other's bar; and that we did; wherefore anything else of a collateral nature, to which we could not have had an answer, cannot be admitted or held as not denied by us.—Sckope was in the Bench, and said :—What you say as to two bastards you say well, but, in God's name, you might have saved yourself against her by way of replication, as by saying that your father was mulier, and that after his death you entered as heir, and were seised, and that she could not oust you because she was a bastard, and so you might have affirmed rightful possession in your person, and have disabled her by way of replication; and this replication must have been entered on the roll, and at a future time you would have saved yourself; but when you pleaded entirely to the estate of your father, not denying Ellen to be able, it would be strange if you could now disablo her.—R. Thorpe. Sir, if we had pleaded in that manner, he would have said that we had given two answers and have driven us to hold to one, and we should then perforce have been compelled to hold to that which we did plead.—W. Thorpe. It is not so, for you could have saved yourself as has been said, or by way of protestation, as, for instance, if I bring a Cessavit against you and I count that you hold the land of me by fealty and by the services of 20«., whereas you hold of me only by fealty and by the service of one penny per annum, if you take issue with mc that you have not ceased, without aiding yourself by protestation, even though the issue be found in your favour, you shall at another time bo charged with the twenty shillings.—Taming. No resemblance is to be traced between a Cessavit and an assise of Novel Disseisin.W. Thorpe. As to this point they are sufficiently alike.—And note that in this plea Scrope said that if a husband alicne tho right of his wife, with warranty, and be ley; douqes si le bastard ly re-oustcra et il portera lassise, et A.D. 1340.

A.D. 1340. afterwards vouched to warranty, and enter into warranty, he has come back to the position in which he was before the alienation, Ac.—But qucBre as to this.—And afterwards they were adjourned.

Eecogui- (20.) Note that two persons sued two Statutes Mertmce- chant made by one and the same recognisor, whereof A's statute was dated in the 12th year and E.'s statute in the 13th year, and E.'s writ was soonest served, and execution was awarded. Wherefore A. came and rehearsed the whole matter, as above, and said that the Court could know and be apprised that his statute was of older date than E.'s statute on which execution was awarded, and prayed a Supersedeas directing the Sheriff to make no execution or delivery to E., until his writ was served.—And he had it.

Account. (21.) § One A. brought a writ of Account against Thomas, son of John Ward of Estfeld, who came, out of custody, at the return of the Capias, and the plaintiff counted against him gratis; and immediately the said A counted against the same person on a writ of Forfeiture of Marriage, to which he did not answer.—Blaik. Judgment against him as undefended.—Kelshulle. You have counted without a party; for you have counted against Thomas, son and heir of John Ward of Estfeld, and as to your statement that he is the same person who answered to the writ of Account, the Court can not be apprised thereof nor can it be averred; wherefore, &c.; and it ought to be understood that they are different persons, for one is called " son and heir," and the other only "son."—Blaik. W. de Ros of Hamelake had judgment for himself in a like case in the 4th year against Robert de Lacy on a writ of Debt, where Robert did not answer, and stood at the bar. — Basset. In that case another had brought against him a writ of Account to which he answered, and in the two writs there was no diversity of name or surname.—Trinity term in the 4th

Par quei A. vient et rehercea totum ut supra, et dit qe Court poet saver et estre apris qe son estatut est de eisne date qe lestatut E. sur quel execucion est agarde, et pria Supersedeas a Vicounte qil fist nul execucion ne livere a E. tant qil fust servy. —Et habuit.

3 There is a third report of this case in Harl. 741. It consists of a copy of the record of assise in pais followed by an abridgment of the

proceedings after the adjournment
into the Common Bench, but con-
tains the addition that the plaintiff
was nonsuited : — puis Andrewe
