The king to the sheriff, greeting. Order A. that rightfully and without delay he  permit B. the rector of such a church to have his common of pasture in his land of such  a vill, of which C.1 his predecessor, formerly rector of the same church, was seised as  appurtenant to his church on the day he died, as [B.] says. And unless he does so  summon etc. (as above). The same writ could be used, so it seems, in the case of all  other parsons who can claim in the name of their church the lands, tenements and  rights of which their predecessors die seised as of the right of their church, as archbishops,  bishops, abbots, priors, canons of prebendal churches, and other rectors  of churches, nor do I know any reason against it, since there is the same reason in all.  On the day of summons the deforciant may essoin himself if he wishes. If he defaults  some think that the procedure because of the default is that the pasture be seized  into the king's hand, as though it were a real action, which, it is submitted, ought not  to be, since the action is personal rather than real and thus attachment rather than  seizure is proper.2 But whether it is one or the other,3[the manner of proceeding will  appear sufficiently below.]4 But whatever the procedure, when begun by this writ  the matter cannot become a proprietary action, since it only lies in a possessory  action, as may be seen immediately above. This writ, like the assise of mortdancestor,  may be answered in many ways, and determined by a jury and inquest,  according to what is alleged and denied.5 There is also another writ, specially drawn  in response to a plaint, which is partly and to some extent similar to the writ of  mortdancestor and partly like that of novel disseisin, which may be determined  outside the county without prejudice to the common liberty,6 which is this.
Another writ drawn which is like mortdancestor and partly like novel disseisin.
 If A. the son of B. has made you secure etc. then summon C. by good summoners to  be etc. to show by what warrant he holds himself in so much land with the appurtenances  in such a vill which the aforesaid B. father of the said A., whose heir he is, in  our court etc. recently recovered against the same C. by an assise of novel disseisin  there taken between them, and of which the aforesaid B. was seised as of fee on the  day he died, as is said. The same writ may be used for common of pasture, thus:  to show why he [C.] does not permit such a one to have his common of pasture in  his land of such a vill, which such a one, his ancestor, whose heir he is, recently  recovered in our court etc. against [C.] by an assise of novel disseisin as
