Primary Sources

Aug. 1. 1303 Arbroath

To Walter de Glouc[estria], escheator beyond Trent. Order to restore to Hugh de Aldithele and Isolda, his wife, a third of the manor of Great Markeleye, which is held of the king in chief, together with the issues received from it since it was taken into the king's hands, as they have shown the king that whereas they have long held the said part in her dower of the free tenement of Walter Balun, her first husband, and they have now acquired the right and fee of the said part to them and to Hugh's heirs from John de Balun, kinsman and heir of Walter, to whom the said part ought to have reverted after her death, without obtaining the king's licence, the escheator has taken that part into the king's hands by reason of the acquisition aforesaid, and the king wishes to show favour to Hugh for the good service rendered by him and his ancestors and because he is with the king in his service in Scotland. The part is to be held by them in form aforesaid until further orders. By p.s.
