For example, A. gave land in maritagium with B. his daughter to a certain C. and  the heirs of their two bodies. B. had a daughter, D. by name, by her first husband,  and after his death married a second husband by whom she had a son, by name E.  B. having died and D., her daughter by the first husband being in seisin, E. arraigned  an assise of mortdancestor against the same D. Answer was made on her behalf  that the aforesaid E. could claim no right therein because that land was given in  maritagium to C. her father with B. her mother and the heirs of their two bodies.1  Answer was made by the other side that it was given in another way, that is, in  maritagium with the same B., their common mother, and the heirs issuing from the  same B. In this case, because they were brother and sister of one and the same mother  though by different fathers, it was decided in the last eyre of Martin of Pateshull in  the county of Suffolk that the assise did not lie between them, but that an inquest  be made by the country, not by the assise, as to the modus of the gift, an assise of  mortdancestor [beginning], if Philippa de Cockfield, mother of Robert.2
Bastardy falls into the assise.
 3Bastardy also falls into an assise, by which it is turned into a jury, as where an older  brother brings an assise against a younger, son of another father, on the death  of their common mother, or conversely, [the younger against the older], and the  reply is made by the older that he is their mother's first born, though by another  husband, and the replication is made by the younger that he cannot be the heir  since his father never married their common mother. The truth will be declared by an  assise taken in the manner of a jury by consent of both parties, as [in the roll] of the  eyre of Martin of Pateshull in the county of Shropshire.4
A question of wardship, whether the tenement for which the assise is arraigned is held in socage or by military service.
 The assise is also turned into a jury if one arraigns an assise against his lord and he  answers that he claims nothing except wardship, and the replication is made against  him that he is not entitled to wardship because the tenement is held in socage. If  the lord answers that he and his ancestors had in the past had wardship therein,  inquiry will be made by the assise in the manner of a jury as to both, that is, whether  that land is or is not socage, and if it is socage, then as to the seisin of the lord and his  ancestor.
The exception of sale.
 The assise is also turned into a jury because of the exception of sale, as where, [when]  one claims by assise of mortdancestor, it is excepted that the demandant had an  older brother
