III., for he was chaplain to William de Cantilupo, grandfather of the said George, and when the said George was born was engaged about the execution of the said William's will, who died the year of George's birth or in the preceding year; and the report of the county is that the said George is 21 on Good Friday last.

Brother John master of the hospital of St. Mark, Billeswyk, without Bristoll, says he knows the said George was 21 on Good Friday last, from the report of the country, and because he was ordained to the priesthood 25 years ago, and the said George's father died at Calveston 18 years ago, and the said George was born three years before at Bergeveny: he is sure of this because he came from the parts of Calveston.

Peter de Bruges says the said George was born twenty-one years ago last Good Friday, which he knows because he was then at Bridgwater (Bruges Walteri) with the constable of the castle, who held the hundred court when the report came of the said George's birth, and one or two years after King Henry crossed into Gascony.

Robert de Trillek agrees, and knew it by inspection of the chronicles in the priory of Bergeney, and he heard men of Bergeveny disputing about it, who at last agreed as above.

Thomas Creyk agrees, and knew it because Anastasia his wife was first married to Richard Wason in that year, who had by her a son who is now canon at Briweton, and who was born on the feast of All Saints twenty-one years ago, and the said George on Good Friday following.

Robert Blundel (knight) knew it well because he was sent as messenger to Bergeveny by Sir Th. Corbet to seek his lord's land of Lydeham, and on Wednesday of Easter week found the wife of the said William lying in childbed with the said George.

John de Baskervill (knight) agrees, and knew it by the relation of knights and others of the country.

Henry Murdak (knight) says the same.

John Faukes of Dertemuth agrees, and knew it by inspection of the chronicles of Totnes priory.

William de Merle (knight) agrees, and knew it by the oath of Sir Adam de Gurdun and others who were of the household (familia) of William de Cantilupo the father of the said George.

John de Pycheford (knight) agrees, adding that he espoused a kinswoman of the said George, viz. the daughter of William de Ebroicis, and diligently enquired the age of the said George from Sir Adam de Gurdun and Sir Robert de Tregoz and others of the said household.
