Robert Hodde drew blood from the wife of Henry Archur; 12d. And from Juliana Horsse; 12d.
Wakefield Manor court rolls; court held at Wakefield (West Riding of Yorkshire), 13 December 1308. MS heading: 'Alverthorpe'.
I believe accidentally injuring someone would have resulted in a fine at this time, so the incident(s) referred to did not necessarily involve any acts of violence.
