  JUST 1/695; an entry from the 1241 Eyre Roll
  JUST 1/695; an entry from the 1241 Eyre Roll. A murder committed by women was unusual. The two women in this case were exacted (called to appear in court) and then outlawed for failing to come to answer the charge. If they had had any money or possessions ("chattels") they would have been taken by the king. None of the named people were in court, so this case would have been dealt with in a few minutes.
  What evidence is there that these were poor women?
