of the offence. Sometimes loss of life is indicated, sometimes loss of members; of  members, as in the eyre of Martin of Pateshull in the county of Lincoln, [the case]  of Thomas of Rasne.1
An appeal for malicious arson and robbery.
 We have spoken of robbery. We must now speak of robbery and malicious arson.  If one in the course of a riot or during a civil disturbance commits arson,2 wickedly  and feloniously, 3either through enmity or for the sake of spoil, let him be punished  by capital punishment.4 I say wickedly, because 5accidental fires or those caused  negligently and without evil intent are not so punished, for against such persons  proceedings are sued civilly.6 Therefore if one wickedly sets fire to another's house7  and takes to flight [and] if there is one who accuses and appeals and prosecutes,  let proceedings be taken against him as in the case of any other felony; if there is  not, let the truth be inquired into at the coming of the justices, as above in the  case of other appeals.8 If he has been arrested and there is someone to prosecute  let the appeal in the county court be enrolled in these words:
A. appeals B.
 A. appeals B. for that whereas he was in the king's peace at such a place on such a  day etc. (as above)9 the said B. came wickedly and feloniously etc. (as above)  when the said A. was present and saw him, and set fire to his houses and burned  them, and of his money and chattels in robbery and against the king's peace carried  away such things (designated and named) to the value of so much. And that he  did this wickedly and feloniously he offers etc. And B. comes and denies everything  word for word etc. (as above), just as it is alleged against him. Then (as above)9  let him ask that allowances be made in his favour and put forward any exceptions  he has or defend himself by the law of the land etc. (as above).10
An appeal concerning the rape of virgins.
 Among other appeals there is an appeal called the rape of virgins. The rape of  virgins is a crime imputed by a woman to the man by whom she says she has been  forcibly ravished against the king's peace.11[If he is convicted of this crime [this]  punishment follows: the loss of members, that there be member for member, for  when a virgin is defiled she loses her member and therefore let her defiler be  punished in the parts in which he offended. Let him thus lose his eyes which gave  him sight of the maiden's beauty for which he coveted her. And let him lose as well
