Patent Rolls 1401-1450
18 December 1406. Grant to the king’s esquire John Bodenham, at the supplication of the commons in the present Parliament and with the assent of the council, of 20 marks yearly from the issues of a moiety of the Lordship of Eweas Lacy [Ewyas Lacy] and 20 marks yearly from the lordships of Blaynlevenny and Dynas in South Wales during the minority of Edmund son and heir of Roger, late earl of March, and so from heir to heir; because at the time when he was sheriff of Hereford he went to great expense in resisting the malice of the Welsh rebels, and especially in rescuing the castle and town of Breghennok, besieged by them, trusting to have repayment according to the king’s promise by signet letters, and afterwards he was appointed commissioner to take musters of men at arms and archers in South Wales from the time of the last Parliament at Coventre till 1 May last and executed the commissions and others directed to him and returned them into Chancery without reward.
