as [If goods one has in his custody have been robbed by someone.]1 those of his  lord or another.2 He must then show that he has an interest enabling him to  appeal, for otherwise he will have no appeal, no more than he would for the death  of some stranger, as to which we have spoken briefly above,3 that is, that he has  received a wound and the like. In the case of another's property he must show that  it has been taken by force from his custody, together with his own goods or without  them, and that he, the appellor-custodian, was accountable to his lord for such a  sum in money.4[On this matter may be found [in the roll] of Michaelmas term in  the fourth and the beginning of the fifth years of king Henry in the county of  Suffolk, [the case] of Roger de Kirkeley and Henry de Vere.]5[To the same intent  [in the roll] of Michaelmas term in the ninth and the beginning of the tenth years  of king Henry in the county of Worcester, [the case] of Thomas de Roche.]6 The  words of the appeal are these:
Of appeals of felony and breach of the king's peace
[and robbery]: the words of the appeal.  A. appeals B. for that whereas he was in the king's peace at such a place etc. (as  above)7 the said B. came with his force and wickedly and feloniously and against  the king's peace and in robbery took from him ten gold coins and one gold ring  valued at so much, and a hundred pounds sterling of the money belonging to his  lord which he had in his custody, as to which he was responsible to his lord for so  much.8 Or thus: A. appeals B. etc. (as above) that when he was at such a place  in the king's peace (or when he had come from such a place to such a place with  his lord's money, or with other chattels or things to the value of a hundred  shillings) the said B. came with his force, wickedly and feloniously etc. (as above)  and in robbery took from him so much of his own chattels and so much of the goods  belonging to his lord, for which he was responsible etc. (as above).
B. comes and makes denial.
 And B. comes and denies the robbery and breach of the peace and everything  etc. (as above).9 And let the proceedings be as above. [If several persons are  appealed as accessories let the said A. himself sue against them, for principals and  accessories are so linked together that they cannot be appealed by different  persons,10 nor may one commit a variance here any more than elsewhere.11 Hence  if one first appeals by his own body and afterwards by that of another the appeal  is invalid, as was said above in the case of Thomas de Roche.] The punishment that  befalls him who is convicted is decided by the nature and gravity
