||JUST 1/695; an entry from the 1241
Eyre Roll. In this extraordinary case, the jurors of the two villages,
whose job it was to bring cases to the Eyre Court, seem to have made
a big mistake ("a false presentment"). Note that Richard
Mansel was a clerk- a member of the Church. This meant that he could
not be tried in that court but was handed over to the local bishop,
the Bishop of Lincoln, for trial in the church court.
