Official papers - Feodaryship of Warwickshire


Letter dated at Asshebye de la Zouch from Job Throkmorton to Arthur Gregory, saying that he had heard Arthur was about to conduct an inquisition concerning the lands of his brother, Madleye, who had recently died [Henry Medley had married Job's sister Frances], and hoping that his (Job's) nephew would not be found a ward, since neither his great grandfather, nor his grandfather, nor his father ever held their land by knight service but in free socage. Endorsed: To the wo supr; my loving frynde Arthure Gregory esq. feodary of the countye of Warwycke
