Nicholas de Faryngton (Farrington), brother of the petitioner.
Robert de Faryngton was active for much of the latter half of Richard II's reign, and beyond. However, he presented two other petitions in 1398 (SC 8/253/12628, 12630), and the handwriting of these appears very similar in style. Each also has a similar filing hole in the left half, suggesting they may once have been filed together.
