VILLATA DE WERK. Rogerus le Pestur, ballivus, juratus.
Robertus Hode, jur'.
Vill of Wark. Roger Pestur, bailiff, sworn.
Robert Hode, jur[or].
The year is 7 Edward I, i.e. 20 November 1278 to 19 Nov. 1279.
There are two Warks in Northumberland: Wark on Tweed and Wark on Tyne. Two of Robert Hode's co-jurors are surnamed "de Pressefenne", and there is a place named Pressen just 3 km SSW of Wark on Tweed, so the latter is most probably the locality intended.
