Dear Newsgroup ~
Here is a contemporary record which relates to Sir William de Seacourt
(or Seckworth, Seukeworth), Knt., of Seacourt, Berkshire, whose son,
William de Seacourt, clerk, was called "nepos" [kinsman] by Bishop
Roger de Meulan, grandson of King John.
Roberts, Excerpta è rotulis finium in Turri Londinensi asservatis,
Henrico Tertio rege, AD 1216–1272, volume 1 (1835): 411.
In this record dated 1244, we find the following:
"Phillip de Cumberwell’ and Maud, his wife, give half a mark for
having a precipe [to remove a plea] against William de Sevekewurth’
from the county court of Berkshire to [the justices of the Bench at]
Westminster. Order to the sheriff of Berkshire etc."
Best always, Douglas Richardson, Salt Lake City, Utah
