. (In a recognizance of Mortdauncestor, Nicholas Fitz William acknowledges half a virgate1 of land in Sheldwich, to be the right and inheritance of John de Scipherste;  for which the said John gives the said Nicholas five acres and three parts of an acre of the same land, in the field of Stoctet, to be held of him and his heirs, by the said Nicholas and his heirs, by one shilling per annum.)

   Unde recognicio de morte antecessoris summonita fuit inter eos in prefata Curia, scilicet quod predictus NICOLAUS recognovit totam predictam terram, cum pertinentiis, ut jus et nereditatem predicti JOHANNIS.
   1 The virgate, or yardland, varied too much to assign its proper measure with any certainty; sometimes it is a quarter of a hide, sometimes fifteen, twenty, or thirty acres. " Virgate," in its more ordinary use, is a rood, a quarter of an acre. See note, p. 252.
