Take to the value from the warrantor's land: the little cape.
 2The king to the sheriff, greeting. Seize into our hand from the land of C. in your  bailiwick, because of the said C.'s default, [land] to the value of so much land with the  appurtenances in such a vill which A. of N. in our court etc. before our justices etc.  claims as his right against B., and as to which the same B. in our same court before  our justices etc. vouched the said C. to warranty against the said A. And summon the  aforesaid C. by good summoners to be before our justices on such a day to hear his  judgment thereof. And have there the summoners and this writ.

C. did not come and at another time had defaulted after he had appeared in court, so  that the land was taken into the lord king's hand etc. and C. was summoned to hear  his judgment.

And let seisin be given to each of them in the form aforesaid, that is, seisin of  the thing sought to A. and of the escambium to B.3

But when they have essoined themselves successively,  and one has taken a day in the Bench when the other essoined himself and then both  default, [though] for the default of both the land must be taken into the lord king's  hand, we must see whether by the great or little cape, because with respect to him  who did not appear it is evident that

An addicio found in LA and MC is omitted here (supra i, 417): cum christianus vel judaeus qui terram non habuerint numquam distringi possint cum vocati fuerint ad warantizandum, praecipiatur vicecomiti quod habeat corpora eorum, quia ibi non poterit captio terrae fieri ad valentiam. Judaeus vero nihil proprium habere potest, quia quicquid acquirit non sibi acquirit sed regi, quia non vivunt sibi ipsis sed aliis et sic aliis acquirunt et non sibi ipsis.
