This page will be segmented when it gets too long.

Add information by clicking on "edit" above. Items should begin with term (if available) and year, together with a letter to allow for distinguishing subsequent documents in the same year and term, and the designation should be in bold, as in this example: H1285 A:.

Text thereafter should indicate what the document concerns. The link to the image of the document should be a copied and pasted full web address (http:// . . .) surrounded by single brackets ( [ ] ), as in this example: []. Leave a line between entries.

The 25-year segments begin with a vertical bar (|) and end with a vertical bar minus (|-). Avoid other more complex codes. If you want to append a translation, provide a completely unique address surrounded by double brackets, as in this example: [[Dartmouth Docs H1275 A Tr]]. Such an address indicates sector and year, the A indicates it is the first document entered for that year and term, the Tr indicates it is a translation. That will constitute a unique address. This will appear in the saved document as a red hyperlink, indicating that it has no content as yet. Clicking on this red hyperlink will open the new document in edit mode.

DO NOT attempt to re-order documents within a term to achieve a perfect chronology, since it will invalidate other references to re-named documents. A document written in Notepad will copy into the site without any complicating code. Avoid more complicated coding.

E1300 A: relation of king's acquisition of Hull in context of another case. [1]

M1303 A: Order to Richard Oysel, custos of Kingston upon Hull on the part of Eustace de Hatche: Eustace had bought a ship at Tinmouth for transport of coal and other goods to Gascony by Thomas de Trumflete of Barton on Humber; Richard Pellesone then asserted that the ship was his and had been taken by wrongdoers at sea so that the ship was arrested; resolution now to be by ordinance of king's council. Richard was unable to prove the ship was his, so that Oysel was to release the ship to Eustace. [2]

E1305 A: Claim of court allowed by sealed bill from chancery. John de Page v. Adam Edward of Kingston upon Hull. Trespass assault. [3]

E1306 A: Claim of court allocated by citation to Easter 33 Edward I. Walter Beaudrer de Killum v. William de Whiteby of Hull & Alan le Seriaunt. [4]

E1306 B: False imprisonment: William de Chauncy v. Andrew de Bolingbroke, John de Cauntebrigg, Bartholomew de Novo Castro, & Henry his son, and John de Buttertrambe. Bolingbroke justified that at that time he was mayor and had proclaimed that beer was to be sold at 3d, and Chauncy continued to see at 4d. Bolingbroke ordered the pub to be signed, and Chancy destroyed the sign. Bolingbroke arraigned Chauncy, whereon Chauncy assaulted Bolingbroke with outrageous words. Newcastle as bailiff then required pledges from Chauncy to answer the mayor, and Chauncy refused and did not allow himself to be attached. Chauncy was thus arrested at the Tolbooth. [5]

E1307 A: Burgesses of Hull distrained to pay tolls in Boroughbridge contrary to their royal charter. [6]

M1309 A: Collection of debts owed to Wynand Morant burgess and merchant of Beverley and owed by merchants of Groningen and the bishop of Utrecht. Goods seized in Hull, with subsequent dispute about the goods seized. [7]


M1348 A: Yorkshire. John de St Albano cleric, examiner of false money in the town and port of Kingston upon Hull arrested William son of Richard de Wyverthorpe and William Watson of Wyverthorpe for importing and using false money in Hull. They both related how they had received the money and denied knowing that it was false. Both were acquitted. [8]

H1349 A: Yorkshire. William de Harpham v. Alexander Coke of Kingston upon Hull and Elota his wife. Harpham had been bound to Elota as executrix of John Rotounheryng her late husband in the sum 110 p.s. He paid her 90 p.s., and in place of an acquitance she wrote on the dorse of the bond that she had received the 90 p.s. For the remaining 20 p.s. it was agreed all around that William de la Pole sr would pay Elota for Harpham. Thereafter Elota notified Harpham that he was in arrear in the sum of 60 p.s. Because she could not prove a 60 p.s. debt with the obligatory writing (because of the writing on the dorse), in 1346 she burned the writing and immediately made a false writing for 60 p.s. and prosecuted Harpham before the mayor and bailiffs of Hull. He did not come at first so that the court ordered an attachment, so that Harpham came to Hull answer, but Elota with others unknown arrested him, so that he was unable to appear before the mayor and bailiffs, so that he was heavily amerced. He was threatened that he woild stay in jail until he paid Elota the 60 p.s. Plaintiffs answered that Elota while single brought a writ of account against Harpham in common pleas. That plea was successfully claimed by the mayor and bailiffs. The parties appeared then before the mayor and bailiffs and Elota claimed that Harpham would not account for the 110 p.s. owed her as executrix. Harpham agreed to account, and the court appointedMaster John de Barton, Robert Upsale, Walter Taverner, and Conan de B-rton. Harpham submitted an acquitance for 31 p.s. 6s8d, and he was attached and put under arrest for the rest. She maintained that she had not made a false writing or arrested Harpham so that he could not appear. The jury found that she had done both and awarded 90 p.s. in damages. Both Harpham and Elota thereafter died, so the king's court issued a scire facias on behalf of John de Harpham the executor against Coke, so that the money was eventually levied. [9] rcp
