of the abbot of Reading and Martin of Pateshull in the county of Leicester, an assise  of mortdancestor [beginning], if Walter son of William.1 And the same may be  said of burgage according to the age2 of burgage,] nor to a writ of right in a proprietary  action3 before he is of full age, that is, twenty-one years.4 When those who  hold in socage and burgage and are of full age according to socage and burgage make  gifts, quaere whether they may revoke them when they reach the age of twenty-one  years, as though they had made them of a military fee. I say they may not, [in some  places,] as may be seen in the eyre of Martin of Pateshull in the county of Warwick  in the fifth year of king Henry, at the end of the roll.5 What has been said applies to  an heir male. With regard to a female heir within age it is not altogether so. To what  matters a minor within age ought to answer will be explained more fully below [in  the portion] on exceptions.6
If a minor sues against one of full age.
 If a minor sues against an adult an essoin will not lie against the minor,7 nor if the  adult defaults will a resummons lie, any more than an essoin. Let the assise be  taken on the first day, if the minor is present, and for this reason, because if the  adult were present he could say nothing as to why the assise should remain.8 And  when the minor has recovered by the assise as of fee, he will not answer to a writ of  right on the right and the property9 before his full age,10 neither to an adult nor  a minor,11 nor will he answer to any other plea in which he could be disinherited  without recovery. If a minor claims against a minor by the assise, the assise will lie  well enough for the minor demandant. 12With respect to a minor in seisin, we must  see how he acquired seisin, whether by his own act, [as where] he committed a disseisin,  or was enfeoffed under age, as to which [more] will be said below,13 [and]  whether his ancestor, whose seisin he has, died seised as of fee or in another way: if  as of fee, he will not answer before his full age, as was said above at the beginning,14  [in the portion] if an adult claims against a minor. If not in fee but in another way,  as in pledge, or for a term or for life, [or] if15 the minor was enfeoffed thereof, the  assise will be taken on the same day, whether he comes or not, because neither an  essoin nor resummons lies. 16<But we must see how and by what writ a plea of warranty  ought to be resummoned when the chief lord's heir reaches his majority. The  writ will be as follows:
