Walsham le Willows.

[22 Mar. 1328:]
William of Cranmer the elder, John Man, William Springold, Walter Springold, Walter Payn and Elias Typetot, jurors, to certify whether John Spileman holds ½r. of land of the tenement Robetels, and Simon Peyntour holds 3r. of the tenement Swiftes, and Thomas Fuller holds ½r. of the tenement Gores, and whether Stephen Cooper owes 4d. annual rent for the tenement Robhood, which the tenants of these tenements say they do not hold, and seek an enquiry. [...][1]

IRHB comments

"[T]he tenement Robhood" is used almost as a place-name, but "the tenement Swiftes", "tenement Robetels" and others quoted later in this court roll entry are reminiscent of genitive constructions one might find in French, so presumably we should read "the tenement Robhood's".

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).
