||C66/217, m.13d; a case
from a Patent Roll. This case was heard in the royal court in July
1326. Joan Basset was in charge of the manor of Gouteby during the
nonage of William Maureward - that is, because William was a under
age, a child. King Edward III had demanded that the accused come to
court to answer the charge. They had failed to come and continued
to stay at Gouteby manor, taking the rents and seizing livestock,
as they wished.
