Details of SC 8/87/4348
Reference: SC 8/87/4348
Petitioners: John de Warenne, Earl Warenne.
Name(s): de Warenne, Earl Warenne, John
Addressees: King.
Nature of request: Earl Warenne asks that the commission of oyer et terminer against his men given to John de Mutforde, John Bakun, John de Redenhale, and John le Claver at the suit of John de Nerforde in Norfolk might be repealed, as these justices are of the fees and robes of Lady de Nerforde, John's mother, and are doing all the harm they can to his people because he has expelled Maud de Nerforde from his heart and his company. He suggests that John de Nerforde might sue against him at common law if it seems good to him.
Nature of endorsement: [On face] John de Mutforde is to be one, and the commission is to stand.[None on dorse]
Places mentioned: Norfolk.
People mentioned: John de Mutforde, justice; John Bakun, justice; John de Redenhale, justice; John le Claver, justice; John de Nerforde; Maud de Nerforde.
Note: CPR 1317-21 p.474 is dated 1 December 1319, and p.537 is dated 8 July 1320. This petition, however, like many of this file, is most likely to have been presented at the Michaelmas parliament of 1320, so either or both of these would seem more likely to represent the commission about which the petitioner is complaining, rather than the confirmation of this commission given in the endorsement.
