Petitioners: William Devereus (Devereux).
Name(s): Devereus (Devereux), William
Addressees: King.
Nature of request: Devereus requests the king's pity of his estate since it came about because of service to the king by the great mischief and default that he suffered in Gascony, he made covenants with Ware by which he enfeoffed him of his manors of Lyonshall, Stoke Lacy and Holme Lacy for life for which Roger granted to render to Devereus £30 per annum at the two terms for his sustenance, but after their common return to England, Devereus kept his side of the covenant, but Ware has not.
Nature of endorsement: He should obtain justice for himself by writ of Chancery.
Places mentioned: Gascony, [France]; Lyonshall, [Herefordshire]; Stoke Lacy, [Herefordshire]; Ham (Holme Lacy), [Herefordshire].
People mentioned: Roger la Ware.
Note: If the petition is by the same petitioner as SC 8/329/E929, then it seems likely that it dates to after the time that the petitioner was supposed to depart with the earl of Lancaster presumably to Gascony in 1295-1296, so the petition is dated to? c. 1296.
Date: [? c. 1296]
