consent because of some incidental exception outside the assise, let the oath then  be made thus,1 no mention made of a view made.
Another form, in the manner of a jury.
 Hear this, O justices, that I will speak the truth as to what you ask me on behalf of  the lord king and I will in no way omit etc. It will then be necessary to inform the  jurors upon what things they ought to speak the truth, thus: You shall say upon  your oath whether so much land with the appurtenances in such a vill is free alms etc.  And accordingly let the enrolment be made thus: The jury comes to recognise if  etc. And in accordance with the verdict of the jurors the judgment issues, depending  upon whether they know or do not know or are in doubt.
Of the several remedies to which a parson is entitled as well as a layman.
 There are also a number of remedies which lie for a parson just as for a layman, that  is, the assise of novel disseisin on his own seisin, if the parson has been disseised.  Also the writ of entry on his own seisin or that of one of his predecessors. Also the  assise utrum etc. All these lie for a parson just as for a layman. There are some which  lie for a layman only, as an action of succession, where a descent is made from ancestor  to heir, which cannot be in the case of a parson, as where a layman claims the  seisin of his ancestor against a parson, [by mortdancestor], in which case the matter  must proceed as between any other persons. If he claims by writ of right, the parson  either has a warrantor or does not. If he has a warrantor and he warrants him, let the  case proceed between warrantor and demandant as between any other persons, to  the duel or2 the grand assise. If he has no warrantor, or3 wishes to answer in his own  person, he will have two remedies, because of the writ of right, and may have the  one he chooses. If the time allowed for proof permits one to testify of his own sight  and hearing, he may then put himself on a jury, if he wishes, as to whether the land  claimed is the free alms etc. or the lay fee [etc.], as though the layman had claimed by  the assise at the outset, [The proprietary action is not thereby changed into a possessory  action, though it [the assise] determines both.] [or] defend himself by the  duel or the grand assise, of necessity, since no one may speak of his own sight or  hearing because of the great length of time. That will be allowed him because of  necessity, since he cannot defend by the assise, if the authority of the ordinary4  and the consent of patrons is secured. If one holds land of a church in free alms for  service and commits a felony or dies without an heir, the tenement will be the escheat  of the church
