Source notes

The quoted passage is an item in a record with the editorial title "Roll of the Presentments of the Mickletorn Jury. 1408, April 23". The MS heading is "Inquisitio Magni Turni capta coram Johanne Samon, Majore villae Notingham', die Lunae proximo ante festum Sancti Marci Ewangelistae, anno regni Regis Henrici Quarti ix°" ("Inquest of the Great Tourn taken before John Samon, Mayor of the town of Nottingham, on Monday next before the feast of Saint Mark the Evangelist, in the 9th year of the reign of King Henry the Fourth")[2].

It is not clear from the context what locality "ibidem" ("there") refers to.
