Therefore we order you to go in person to that manor [and], having joined with you  twelve lawful and discreet men of that neighborhood, knights as well as other free  men, by whom the matter may best be settled, to cause an extent and valuation to  be made by their oath of land and rent to the value of twenty shillings in a suitable  place in the aforesaid manor, and, the extent and valuation having been made,  that you then, by the view of the aforesaid recognitors, cause him to have and to be  assigned the aforesaid twenty shillings worth of land and rent with the appurtenances  by a reasonable extent.
