IN THE TIME OF KING EDWARD I.
Craft of St. Michaelmas, 13 Edward I.
Duchy of Lancaster Records now 1/5 (late F. Nos. 50 & 51, P.R.O.)
These Pleas related to transgressions occurring at various dates; tliose of the 36 (tempe Wm. de Horsendon), 37, 43 & 52 Henry III, 6 & 11 Edward I, can be taken from the rolls, which makes it tolerably certain that no Pleas were held from the 36 Henry III, the date of the last Circuit until this Iter, just as those Pleas covered the period from the 18 John to its own date, so that it is tolerably clear that no rolls have been lost from the time of King John to the date of this Inquest.
The following appear to have been bailiffs during this period :—
Willam de Horsendon, 36 Henry III. Ralf Derley his deputy.
Ralf Bugg, 36-7 Henry III.
luon de Elynton, 37 Henry III.
Richard de Vernon (his heir in 18 Ed. I), 39 Henry III.

THE RIGHTS OF THE FORESTERS OF FEE.
Formerly F 51, now 1/5 of the Duchy Records, Anno 13 Ed. I, (another copy in the Chapter House Records No. 8.)
The first roll is given at page 208 of this volume, with the privileges of the Foresters in 1285. The Rev. Mr. Kerry (Archaeolog1a, 1893,) citing from a lost MS. of Anthony Bradshaw of Duffield, dated c. 1600, asserts that the forest was divided into three parts. The forest called the Champion, evidently a mistake for Champaigne ; Languedale, whereof the Earl of Shrewsbury was then (? 1600) head forester; and the forest of Ashope and Edale, called Hopedale. Wormhill in Campana was the ancient forest centre where the Justice Seat and Swainmote Courts were held.
13 Ed. I. John Daniel held one bovat, Thomas le Archer held four, Thomas son of Thomas Foljambe, within age and in the custody of Thomas de Gretton, Nicolas Foljambe who was in the custody of Henry de Medwe and was then of full age held one bovat, and Adam Goumfrey. The jury find the same account of their rights and privileges which they or their ancestors possessed at the last Iter in 36 Hy. III.
It was presented that Adam Goumfrey and Thomas son of Thomas Foljambe, foresters of fee of the same baliwick, held there one bovat of land, each of them half of it, which was one serjeanty and was divided in ancient times by two brothers, so that both of them remained as if serving for his part: and the said Thomas fil Thomas Foljambe and John le Wolfhonte held another bovat in the same way between them, John holding his half by hereditary descent, by purchase from Thomas Foljambe who acquired the same in free marr1age with a daughter (Katherine) of one Hugh de Mirhawe, this is explained by a (barter at Osberton by which Thomas fil Thomas Foljambe, with the assent of Katherine his wife, conveyed to Thomas fil John Foljambe a messuage in Wormhill which Hugo de Mirhawe held and which he had with his wife (Hugo's daughter) in free marr1age.
The Rev. Charles Kerry, in his article "A History of Peak Forest," in the Derbyshire Archcelrigical Magazine, has given a very interesting account of the services of this bovate.
In the hundred Rolls of 1275 there was a complaint concerning the privileges of the foresters which is of interest. The jury found that Geoffry de Buron had two servants under him as keepers, to the great burden of the whole district; Robert de Melner, Robert de Main-wearing, Rich. le Ragged, Thomas le Archer, John Daniel, Thomas Foljambe and Robert Foljambe had each one servant under him, all of whom gave one mark and £5 l0s. for the office, and for their maintenance out of the district they collected sheaves in autumn, seed in Lent, offerings, lambs, geese and hens, whereas formerly only the ancestors of four of them, Archer, Ragged, Daniel and Milner, had such officers, and they kept them at their own charges. The present inquest confirmed this finding and the ancient rights set out at page 208 of this volume.
