for the stepfather's lifetime,1 but let him be summoned to be etc. to hear the court's  decision with respect to the said warranty, or to warrant with the said heir, by the  following writ.
If an heir vouched to warranty holds nothing of his maternal inheritance but his stepfather holds it, let both be summoned, whether the heir is of age or a minor.
 The king to the sheriff, greeting. Summon A. by good summoners to be before our  justices etc. to hear the decision of our same court with respect to a warranty of so  much land with the appurtenances in N. which B. in our court etc. claims as his right  against C. Or thus: to warrant to E,2 together with C., the son and heir of such a  woman, so much land with the appurtenances in N., which land B. in our same court  before our same justices etc. claims as his right against E., and as to which the same  E. in our same court etc. before our same justices has vouched the said C.3 to warranty  against the same B.4 and as to which the same C. says that he holds nothing of the  inheritance of such a one his mother and cannot answer to the warranty without the  aforesaid A. who holds that inheritance for his life by the law of England.
They may essoin themselves.
 On the day of the lawful summons of fifteen days, each of them, demandant, tenant  and warrantor, may essoin himself if he wishes, together or successively, provided  that each of them has a single essoin, as said above [in the portion] on essoins.5 If on  the day of the summons the demandant defaults, the tenant being present and offering  himself for the suit, the tenant will depart quit of that writ, as is more fully explained  above [in the portion] on defaults.6 In the same way if the tenant defaults, let  the land be seized into the lord king's hand, as above. But if the warrantor defaults  before he has appeared in court, both demandant and tenant being present, let land  to the value of the land claimed be taken into the lord king's hand from the warrantor's  land, if he has land in that county. And so if the tenant has essoined himself. And  let the enrolment be made thus: A. the tenant (or E.7 the tenant's essoiner) offered  himself on the fourth day against B. with respect to the plea that the same B. warrant  him so much land with the appurtenances in such a vill which C. claims as his right  against him and whereof the same A. in our court etc. vouched that B. to warranty  against the said C. And the aforesaid B. did not come. And he was summoned etc.8  Judgment:
