1 H C Maxwell Lyte, editor, <i>Calendar of Close Rolls, Edward II</i>, 4 (London, GB: Her Majesty's Stationery Office, 1893), 2: 13-21; Oct. 15. [1313] Westminster. To him who supplies the place of the treasurer and to the barons of the exchequer. Order to examine the rolls and memoranda of the exchequer concerning payments made to the king, his father and his grandfather, by those who held the manor of Corby after it was taken into the hands of Henry III. by virtue of his order, dated September 26, in the 25th year of his reign, to take into his hands all the lands that belonged to Wychard Ledet, he having afterwards, on October 25, in the same year, ordered the sheriff of Northampton to deliver the manor to Mary, late the wife of the said Wychard, upon her finding security for 10l. for the relief of Walter his son and heir, because it was found that the manor, which was taken into the king's hands on account of Wychard's death, was held of the king in socage; and afterwards, on February 8, in the 41st year of his reign, he restored the custody of the manor to Ermentrude, late the wife of the said Walter, then deceased, because it appeared that the manor was held of the king at fee-ferm and not by knight service, to hold during the minority of Walter's heir, and he ordered the queen of England to cause Ermentrude to have full seisin thereof; it being now shewn to the king by Alice, daughter and heiress of the said Walter, whom William le Latymer, lately deceased, married, that the treasurer and barons unduly charge her with 340l. 16s. 8d. of the arrears of the yearly ferm of 100s. of the said manor from the aforesaid September 26, although all the goods and chattels of her husband were taken into the late king's hands for debts due to him and were delivered by the then treasurer and barons of the exchequer on mainprize to answer to the exchequer for the said debts. They are not to charge her for the time when the manor was in the hands of the king's grandfather or of others.
