Appointment of Henry de Cobeham, the younger, Eoger le Sauvage and Richard de Rokesleye to be conservators of the peace and of the statute of Winchester in the county of Kent, as the king understands, from the loud complaint of his people, that after he set out upon his march to Scotland, great outrages had been committed as well by knights as others, who confederated together, held conventicles and other unlawful assemblies, as well by day as night, committed assaults and murders, broke the parks both of the king and his subjects, and hunted the deer, which outrages have not been duly repressed by the sheriffs and other officers and ministers of the king. The conservators are to enquire by the oath of good and lawful men concerning such disturbances and transgressions, and also all other offences against the peace. All persons against whom indictments shall be found, or who shall be notoriously suspected, are to be pursued, taken, and kept in custody by the sheriff so that they be not enlarged without the special command of the king. The posse comitatus is to be raised whenever necessary. The conservators are to make returns from month to month to the Council at Westminster of their proceedings, and of the names of the malefactors. The king will shortly send certain of his lieges into their county to do justice upon the offenders, and also to ascertain whether the conservators have been sufficiently diligent, and how the sheriff has
conducted himself therein. [Parl. Writs."] By p.s.
