[19 Oct. 1361:]
Ordered to attach by [their] bodies Walter Robhood, William Osbern, Henry
Osbern, John Rampolye, John Clevehog, Nicholas Clevehog and William
Clevehog the sons of John Clevehog, villeins of the lord, who are fugitives.[1]

Source notes

The Walter Robhood concerned in this entry was a son of John Robhood [I].[2] Brackets as in printed source.

IRHB comments

It is by no means certain that the fugitives had fled the village after committing a serious crime. A few lines after the above entry comes this: "Henry Osbern and William Osbern each amerced 3d. for default of suit of court."[3] Perhaps they simply failed to appear at a court session or fled the village to escape villeinage.

The Robhoods of Walsham le Willows (Suffolk) occur frequently in the manor court rolls throughout the period covered (1316-99). For full discussion, genealogy and listings of records, see Robhoods of Walsham le Willows (record texts).
