Also they represent that on the night of the last Thursday before the feast of St Nicholas in the fifth year of the reign of king Richard, the second after the Conquest, Robert Hood and John Leicester, girdler, at Coventry assaulted and made hamsoken on John Burtenham, taylor, and beat and mistreated him contrary to the king's peace.
