on the seisin of which parson the land is claimed1 by the assise, and how he was  seised, in demesne or in service,2 whether the land was given to the parish church in  free alms, to be held in demesne, or only the service, [as where] it is given to a feoffee  [to hold of his feoffor, the services to be done to the church], or to the church subject  to the condition that the church make the feoffment, to be held of the church;3[If  when one is so enfeoffed, to himself and his heirs to hold of his own feoffor, and he  gives some annual rent to the church for having the warranty and protection of the  church, this ought not to be called a service, but rather a payment in the name of  alms. In that case nothing more may be claimed, neither in the name of escheat nor  for any other reason.]4 accordingly we may easily tell whether the parson has a  iusta causa for claiming in demesne or only the service. We must also see by whom  the land was given to the church, that is, by one who has the right or by one who does  not, that a warrantor may be called, as is done in other pleas and assises; if the  warrantor defaults let the matter proceed as above [in the portion] on vouching a  warrantor in the assise of mortdancestor.5 Among other exceptions and answers,  [the exceptions and replications [available to the parties] may be drawn from what  has been said,] if the parties wish. If there is no warrantor, and no exception is put  forward, the parties and the jurors being present in court, let the assise proceed in  the manner of an assise, a reference being made, according to some, to the tenement  sought, because of the view which the jurors make thereof, as is done in the other  aforesaid assises.
