Not illustrated. 1860 edition. Excerpt: ...Grantor's Great Mere of Colemere, with fosses and watercourse from the said Mill down to the said Mere. The Grantor further allows rights of common to the Canons' men of Stokeyte (Stockett) and Newton, throughout his tenement of Colemere. Witnesses, --Sir Thomas de Rossall, Sir Vivian his son, and Sir Thomas de Lee."1 King Henry III. included the above grants of Engelard de Stretton and Robert de Lacy in a Confirmation of August 1, 1253.

The Manor owed suit to County and Hundred; and paid 16d. for stretward and motfee."2 The Jurors further represented that "for a whole year Robert de Lacy had withdrawn the said suits."

"The King was damaged to the extent of 3s. by the withdrawal." This entry on the Hundred-Roll is connected with another document, which gives us not only the proximate date when those Inquests were taken, but the names of the two Justiciars who took them. On July 31, 1255, King Henry III., addressing Philip Lovel, his Treasurer, and Nicholas de Haudlou, informs them that "his faithful and beloved Robert de Lacy had complained of the Royal Bailiff at Ellesmere, for exacting from the said Robert other customs and services than he and his ancestors had been more
