Margery, widow of John de la Hyde, states that her husband sold certain lands in Ebury called La Hyde to John de Benstede, which are now in the king's hand through his death. She requests her dower from these lands, as she has been delayed in receiving it for two years by John de Benstede.
Nature of endorsement:
Coram domino rege.The reason for which the tenements are in the king's hand is to be seen: whether it is under title of wardship or some other reason; and he is to inform the Chancellor of this, and the king is further to be informed.
Eye (Ebury, [Middlesex]; La Hyde (Hyde Park), Middlesex
John de la Hyde, husband of petitioner; John de Benstede (Benstead).
CFR 1319-27 p.250, dated 20 December 1323 dates this petition to after 1323, but, as Margery requests her dower for the sake of the soul of the king's father, it would seem to date from the beginning of the reign of Edward III.
