C. Edw. I. File 106. (4.) 1
To Walter de Glouc[estria], escheator this side Trent. Whereas the king lately—upon its being found by an inquisition taken by the escheator that John de Munceaus held at his death nothing of the king in chief by reason whereof the wardship of his lands ought to pertain to the king, but that he held certain lands in Compton of the heir of William Walrand, a madman (idiota) in the king's wardship, by the service of 13s. 4d. yearly for all service, and John, his son, is his next heir and is of full age—the king took John's fealty for the lands in Compton and rendered them to him, and ordered the escheator to cause him to have seisin thereof, upon his finding security to answer to the king for his relief, and not to intermeddle further with the lands that John held of other lords than the king; and it appears to the king by inspection of the said inquisition that John the father held the manor of Esthurst, co. Sussex, of the earl of Britanny, and certain lands in Compton, co. Southampton, of Thomas de Warblynton; which lands John has entered by virtue of the order aforesaid; the orders the escheator to deliver [to John] the issues received by him from the said manor and the lands in Compton from the time when they were taken into the king's hands.
