and this writ. Witness etc. If the ancestor has entered into religion so that he is  dead for secular purposes, or has gone on a pilgrimage on which journey he has died,  the writ is altered thus: ready to recognise on oath if such a one, the father (or  mother, uncle or aunt, brother or sister) of such a one was seised in his  (or her) demesne as of fee of so much land (or rent) with the appurtenances in  such a vill on the day he (or she) took the habit of religion, and if he (or she)  took that habit after the term (as above). And if such a one etc. (as above).1 Or thus:  on the day he undertook a journey of pilgrimage to the Holy Land (or St. James  or elsewhere) on which journey he died, as is said, and if he undertook that journey  after the last etc. And if such a one is his nearer heir.2 There is another way and  another form where several parceners, co-heirs having one right, claim by the  assise, as several women of whom some are married and some not. Let it be drawn  in this way.
Another writ where there are several parceners demandants.
 The king to the sheriff, greeting. If A. and B. his wife and C. and D. the sisters of the  same B. have made you secure etc., then summon twelve etc. to be before etc.  ready to recognize on oath if such a one, the father of the same B. C. and D., was  seised etc. (as above) of ten acres of land with the appurtenances in such a vill.  And if etc. And let the tenant be summoned, one or several, who hold that land.  [Where there are several] there will be several assises because of the number of  tenants. 3Note that where the demandant is within age he will not find pledges to  prosecute. Thus the writ will not say if such a one who is within age has made you  secure etc., but immediately after the greeting it will say, if A. the father of such a  one who is within age was seised etc. Nor is the term to be added, for if the demandant  is within age it will be perfectly clear that the ancestor of the minor died after the  term.
Writ which is mixed in nature, mortdancestor and cosinage.4
 There is another form of writ which is, so to speak, mixed in nature, partaking of the  writ of mortdancestor and of that of cosinage, where the inheritance descends from  one stock to two persons who are, so to speak, a single heir by different lines of  descent, as to a daughter, where the assise of mortdancestor lies, and a grandson by  another daughter, where cosinage lies on the death of the grandfather, a degree to  which the assise does not extend; hence the writ is [not] drawn in the form above  but is varied in this way, if such a one the father (or mother) of A. and grandfather  (or grandmother) of B. (or greatgrandfather or ancestor) was seised in his  demesne etc.5 What is said of the seisin of [the father and mother on the part of the  said A. and of] the grandfather and grandmother on the part of the grandson  [B.], applies to their brothers and sisters, the uncles and aunts of the same A., and  the cousins or ancestors
