Commission 8 July 1331 to Thomas de Glaston and others to extend all the castles, manors, etc of the said Theobald, excepting those assigned in dower to Elizabeth late the wife of the said Theobald.

Endorsed:- The commissioners have extended all the lands etc which belonged to Theobald de Verdon in co Stafford…and as to the residue in co Hereford…and the Marches of Wales, nothing is done at present because the sheriffs of the said counties have not returned the panels. And afterwards William Trussel, the escheator, was commanded to extend the castles, manors, and lands etc of the said Theobald…so that the king should have the extents in his chancery on the morrow of S Hilary next (14 January 1332), when the heirs and partners of the said inheritance are to receive their pourparties.
