county of Essex proceeded from ignorance, nor may he be said to be contumacious  who has lawfully made his defence in one county court though appealed and outlawed  in another for the same deed, through ignorance and error, we, therefore,  with the counsel of our magnates, pronounce that outlawry void and we have  pardoned B. for it if ever it existed. Therefore we will and order that the same B.  have our steadfast peace therein forever. In witness whereof etc. There is also  another writ on the same matter, where one falsely indicted before the justices by  one covetous of his land has been outlawed and has subsequently surrendered  himself to the king's prison.
Where one has been falsely indicted before the justices and has afterwards surrendered himself to the king's prison; the king remits the outlawry.
 The king to the sheriff, greeting. It has been shown us on A's behalf that when he  was abroad, at the time our justices were last on eyre in your parts, some of his  neighbours, coveting his land, maliciously caused him to be indicted for theft,  though he was not guilty, and stated that they held him suspect thereof, so that  our aforesaid justices gave instructions that unless he appeared to stand trial on  the said indictment he should be exacted from county court to county court and  outlawed according to the custom of our realm. The same A., having returned and  heard of this, trusting in his own innocence and faithfulness, surrendered himself  to our prison at such a place before he had been outlawed in your county court,  but your county court, not knowing this, as you have said, continued the process  of exaction begun against the said A. and outlawed him while he was in prison.  We, having regard to A's honesty and the county court's ignorance, have pardoned  him the outlawry so promulgated against him, on condition that he find adequate  security for standing his trial if anyone wishes to sue against him. Therefore we  order you, having received from him safe and secure pledges in the manner aforesaid,  to cause him to be released from prison, and to cause it to be proclaimed  throughout your whole county that he has our steadfast peace. And that no one is  to harass or aggrieve him by reason of that outlawry. Witness etc.
Where he who was said to be slain returns alive and well.
 If a homicide is charged to some timid man and he has fled and been outlawed  at someone's suit, or has been indicted and has fled, and he who was alleged to be  slain afterwards makes his appearance alive and well, the king of his grace remits  the outlawry by this writ:
A writ where one said to be slain returns alive and well.
 The king to the sheriff, greeting. Know that our justices who were last on eyre in  your county record that when A. in our court before
