1315 - Robert and Robert sons of John Hood
|Topic||Robert, son of John Hood, and Robert his brother fined for escapes in the frith.|
By Henrik Thiil Nielsen, 2015-08-31. Revised by Henrik Thiil Nielsen, 2021-01-08.
Robert, s. of John Hodde, 6d.; Robert, his brother, 3d. [...] for escapes in the Frith.
Wakefield Manor court rolls; court held at Wakefield (West Riding of Yorkshire), on Friday after Michaelmas, under the section heading "Sourby", i.e. Sowerby; membrane 1.
The most natural reading seems to be that the two Roberts were brothers, but we cannot rule out the possibility that "his" in "his brother" refers to John Hodde, in which case Roberts I and II would of course be nephew and uncle.
