Reference: SC 8/215/10727
Petitioners: Nicola de Brunneslee.
Name(s): de Brunneslee, Nicola
Addressees: Council.
Nature of request: Nicola de Brunneslee recounts that after her brother Giles was murdered in Northamptonshire by Sedenhale and his wife Katherine, who was then Giles's wife, Beek, fitz Raaf, Fang, Cewe and others, and the petitioner brought a suit against them for this murder, they conspired to indict her so that she was taken and imprisoned and later acquitted. They then pursued her in foreign counties until she was outlawed; this outlawry has since been reversed. They also disseised her of her land in Farthingstone by force so that she did not dare to enter or bring suit against them for fear of death. Now they have also put her in exigent. The petitioner requests that the evildoers be ordered to appear before the council to answer for their actions, and that she may have remedy.
