An inquiry of 8 jurors, namely John son of William le Grayve, John Shephird, Henry de Plegwik, Henry de Ketelesthorp, Thomas Monk, John Ploghwright, William de Plegwik and Roger de Donecastre, was taken at the suit of Adam Whitheved who, according to an inquiry at the last court, rendered 6d besides harvest and ploughing service which service was valued at 6d per annum. They say that Robert de Donecastre gave Thomas Pelleson < 2 messuages >, 10 acres and a rood for which he was accustomed to do the said service in exchange for 10 acres and a rood which he took from Thomas Pelleson. Robert by virtue of the exchange burdened himself with these services, and his heirs and assigns of these performed the said service to this point continuously. Of these tenants, Adam Whitheved holds < a messuage >, 3 acres and a rood, and works valued at 2d per annum, and Roger de Donecastre holds a messuage and 7 acres, works valued at 4d per annum. Adam and Roger are burdened with 6d for service as was claimed.[1]
