juratores super sacramentum suum presentant quod Willelmus faber debet sectam ad hanc curiam et fecit defaltam

so far I have: jurors upon their oath, present that workman William should divide to this court his default

though I think the end is incorrect?

@shabba6643,
The last part
debet sectam ad hanc curiam et fecit defaltam
would be translated
"owes suit to this court and has made default"

This means that he was to have appeared in court but did not.

@George,
Thank you for your help, that makes much more sense.

for this one,

juratores presentant quod Johanna et Agnes braciaverunt et fregerunt assisam. Ideo in misericordia

I have translated as:

Jurors swear present that Johanna and Agnes used to brew and had done together. Therefore into merciful

Again, I am unsure about the ending as my translation does not make sense to me...

@shabba6643,
The last part
braciaverunt et fregerunt assisam. Ideo in misericordia.
is translated
"have brewed and broken the assize. Therefore in mercy."
This means they brewed ale and broke the law (assize) which regulated the
brewing and sale of ale. "Therefore in mercy" means that the penalty
should be moderate.

@George,
okay, it was the legal terminology that confused me. Thank you.

This one I am really struggling with (i don't think the lack of punctuation helps)

et ego dictus Thomas et heredes mei dictam terram cum pertinenciis dicto Willelmo et heredibus suis contra omnes gentes warantizabimus et defendemus imperpetuum

'and I said Thomas and my heirs will in appurtenance my land from William and his heire's will warrant and defend against all the nations'.

I am unsure if william and his hieres (assuming that is correct is in the dat or abl)?

George

@shabba6643,
I have reordered the Latin text for clarity.

et ego dictus Thomas et heredes mei
and I, the aforesaid Thomas, and my heirs

warantizabimus et defendemus
will warrant and defend

dictam terram cum pertinenciis

the aforesaid land with its apputenances

dicto Willelmo et heredibus suis
to the aforesaid William and his heirs (note: dative)

contra omnes gentes
against all people

imperpetuum
forever

@George,
so it was the dative, thank you for making it all so clear.

For this one:

hoc est inventarium omnium bonorum mobilium et immobilium Domini Ade Pykeryng capellani nuper defuncti

I have:

this is to be the list of all possesions mobile and imobile of the Lord Chaplin Pykering who has recently deceased

@George,

I understand that '
Robert Cole came and purchased, with homage i think' but I am not sure where the 'present' comes into it....and what exactly he hes purchased?!

I know its two half yards and something to do with an ox or inytestine?
