A.D. 1340. and PARNING said that was true.-Thorpe. Whereas she
makes the reversion to be hers, as above, we tell you that C., whom she calls her tenant, did not lease to W.; ready, &c.—And note that this was held to be a good answer, for it is sufficient to traverse the point by which she made the reversion hers, although she might have it by another way.- Wherefore Gayneford said that C. and J. her husband leased as above. And because he pleaded for an infant under age he was admitted by the Court to say that.-Thorpe. We tell you that W. and G. hold in common, as our writ supposes ; ready, &c.; for this goes to abate the writ, wherefore we will not pass it.Gayneford. Tenants as we have pleaded; ready, &c.— And the other side said the contrary.—And note that the writ will abate if the finding be in favour of him who prays to be admitted; so he cannot be admitted upon the issue.
(29.) § Upon a taking of beasts W. Thorpe made cognisance that the taking was good, as by bailiffs of one Robert Corun, for a rent charge, &c., and he · showed the deed.-Kelshulle. Whereas he makes cognisance of this taking, &c., for a rent charge, we make protestation that we do not acknowledge that the deed was made at the time of its date, but we say that, whereas the deed pu rports to be dated on such a day, the person whom you suppose to have charged, on the third day before, when he held the same land discharged, executed a recognisance to us, &c.; when the day of payment had passed we sued the Elcgit, and this land was delivered

A.D. 1340. to us, so that we hold this land, and in such state as he
held it on the day of the recognisance, that is to say, discharged; judgment whether you can avow this distress.— W. Thorpe. At any rate, you do not deny that there is such a deed, though saving to yourself the allegation that you hold discharged because your estate is higher.—Kelshulle. I plead nothing as to the deed, for I am a stranger and cannot either admit or deny it. -- THE COURT. In point of judgment it must be held as not denied by you, and to such intent we take your plea.— W. Thorpe. Very well, Sir. Then you see clearly how he pleads in discharge of this land, and he himself shows that he has only a term in the land; wherefore we do not understand that such a plea lies in his mouth, for we have seen a termor in such a case precluded from aid and from every plea which could lie in discharge of the freehold.—(See above, Michaelmas Term in the 8th 1 year, upon a like writ).-SCHARDELOWE. In this case he has a higher estate than a term.— W. Thorpe. Sir, he might devise his estate ; wherefore, &c. And afterwards Thorpe said gratis : — We cannot be parties either to charge or to discharge the tenements without the person on whose behalf we have made the cognisance, and we pray aid of him.-SCHARDELOWE. You ought first to join issue with the present plaintiff. -R. Thorpe. To what purpose shall we join issue, when we cannot be parties to try this matter? And, besides, we understand that if he come in whose right we have made the cognisance, and of whom we have prayed aid, he will be able to join another issue (quære), and that, if he be not made a party to this plea, we are absolved from the damages.-SCHARDELOWE. It is not so, for damages will always lie against him who, in pleas of issint qe tenoms ceste terre, et de tiel estat com il A.D. 1340. avoit jour de reconisance, saver decharge ; jugement si ceste destresse poiz avower.-W. Thorpe. Au mayns, vous ne deditez mye qe tiel fait il iad, salve qe vous tendrez descharge pur vostre estat de 3 plus haut.-Kels.

A.D. 1340. this nature, is party to the original.— W. Thorpe. Sir,
this is a rent charge, wherefore it seems to us that we shall have aid without joining issue, but, perhaps, if this were rent service, it would be otherwise.—PARNING. You pray aid because you cannot be parties to charge or to discharge, according to what you say yourself; but so far as what he has said is concerned, you can be parties; but when issue is joined, then for the first time is there a cause for praying aid, for then that issue serves to charge or to discharge.—And afterwards W. Thorpe said :—The deed [by which the rent was granted] was made before the recognisance?; ready, &c.—And the other side said the contrary.-And then for the first
time he had aid. Replevin, Replevin, where two made cognisance as bailiffs of
