To the petition to the prince of the villeins of the maerdref of Penrhos that the sheriff compelled them to pay £24 annually of an unjust extent. And to the petition of the prince’s villeins of Rhosyr that the justice distrained them to pay 12s. 9d. of annual rent of assize of an unjust extent in addition to what they were accustomed to pay. It was answered that what was put in the extent made in the time of the king before the land of Wales was given to the lord prince could not be remitted unless they showed a charter or title, but the justice was then instructed to have the extent examined and if an error should be found in it he should certify the lord of the error and meanwhile the demand should be respited.
