[10 July 1358:]
To the sheriff of Cornwall. Order to cause John Petyt, knight, to have seisin of 2 messuages and 2 acres of Cornish land in Trenans, which John Rogeron of Trenans held, who was outlawed for felony, it is said, as the king has learned by inquisition taken by the sheriff that the said tenements have been in the king's hand for a year and a day, that John held them of John Petyt, and that Robert de Elford, late sheriff, had the year and day thereof and ought to answer therefor to the king.[1]
