  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.
