Robert Turnor claimed that he had been disseised of common of pasture in a piece of land forty feet in breadth and forty feet in width to which he was entitled by virtue of his free tenement, i.e. one messuage and a virgate of land. Arthur Gregory requested an adjournment until the following Michaelmas term, but he defaulted on the reopening of the case, and a further adjournment was granted until the following Hilary term.
