A.D. 1340." take from his tenants ;" wherefore judgment whether he can charge us contrary to the deed of the ancestor of his cognisor by saying that the land is holden of him.— And afterwards Thorpe waived the point, and said that he held of the cognisor by fealty [and ten marks] by the year for all services, by the same deed; and he said that, by force of the deed, the cognisor was bound to warrant and acquit him and his successors for those services, and he who now sues has not wherewithal to warrant or acquit, and we do not understand that we ought to attorn to him.—Pole. We will aver that he held of our cognisor by the services which we have shown; ready &c.—Thorpe. You shall not be admitted to that in opposition to the deed any more than in an avowry. On the other hand, our allegation that we hold by less services is only a protestation, for the quantity cannot make an issue in this plea, for the tenancy which is the cause of attornment is admitted, and no reason remains why we should not attorn except this which we allege, that you are not sufficient, which you do not deny ; judgment —Pole. If I accept your attornment in this manner I shall lose the rest of the services, for the fine will be simple.—Hillary. Your plea in both respects shall be entered, so that this shall be saved to you at another time.— Thorpe, An issue cannot be taken on the quantity, for, if the inquest should pass for us, still we should have to attorn.—Basset. The plaintiff appears by attorney who cannot receive homage. — Pole. He causes the defendant to come to acknowledge by what services &c.; and while we are in debate about the services he will never attorn; and he refuses the averment; judgment.

which the action was brought by
Nicholas Kryel against Ralph
Sauvage, tenant for life of lands,
houses, &c., in Eynesford (Kent).

A.d. 1340. As to the gardens, no waste ;—(so he accepted the rooting up of willows as waste, although the cuttingof them isnot); —as to a mill, at the time of the lease it was going, and so it is still; and as to another, there was no mill grinding, but a house which is not deteriorated ; as to ten oaks, they were taken for the reparation of the hall of the manor to which the wood is appendant; and, as to the rest, he who brings the writ had, before the lease, sold 4,000, and before the lease they were delivered, and the others wore to be cut and delivered; wherefore by his deed, which is here, reciting these matters, he prayed us to deliver them, and granted that for so doing we should not be impeached of waste ; judgment whether in opposition to his deed &c. As to the ash-trees, no waste; ready &c.

Note that Waste was assigned in six roods of clay and 200 oaks &c. and 200 willows rooted up.—And note that the clay was dug and sold, and the rooting up of the willows was called waste, for they can never grow again.—And note that, as to the oaks, the tenant admitted the cutting for the purpose of repairing houses &c. And this answer was held good.—A case in Easter Term in the twelfth year on a similar writ agrees.1 See however the Derby Eyre where Herle did not allow cutting for the purpose of repairing houses, &c.
