Peter Attebarre has a day to wager his law that he did not depasture grass of John Attebarre in the meadow at Neuton to his damage. Robert Hode likewise. An inquiry is to come to determine whether or not Robert Hode depastured his grass in his croft at Neuton and also whether he depastured his grass and corn in le Estefeld.[1]
