the court of the lord king with respect to the same land between such a one, demandant,  and such a one, tenant, or their ancestors, which was so brought before the court  and determined that the land remained to the tenant or his ancestors by the grand  assise or the duel, a jury or an inquest, [or by default after the duel waged or the  grand assise chosen,] by fine made and the like. All these may be proved by the rolls  and the record of the justices.
An exception also lies because of silence, because he did not put in his claim.
 An exception also lies for the tenant by reason of the demandant's silence, or that of  one of his ancestors, as where one is silent when he sees [that others wish] to sue with  respect to his right or make a concord [and] does not put in his claim before1 judgment  [as where the grand assise has been awarded, the duel waged or a jury arraigned,] or  a chirograph made in court, 2<as in the eyre of William of Ralegh in the county of  Leicester, [the case] of William of Berimgehurst.>3 We must see who ought to put in a  claim, how, when and where, and who is prejudiced and who not [if] a claim is not  made. And when one is excused because he has not put in a claim and when not. Who?  It is clear that it is anyone who has an interest,4 as one who has a right in the thing  in dispute, either by himself or by another. How? It is clear that he may simply say  I put forward my claim, Or if the duel has been waged, he may say that he does not  put his right either in the demandant's claim or the tenant's defence. It suffices  if he or his ancestor does what amounts to that, as where they begin a plea against  the tenant and make the thing litigious, for as it is more effective to appeal by deed  than by word, so is it to make a claim by deed than by word. To this intent [in the  roll] of Trinity term in the fifteenth year of king Henry in the county of Huntingdon,  [the case] of a certain Goldeburga,5 against whom the objection was made that she  had not made her claim; she answered that she did what amounted to it, because at  the time the fine was made she impleaded the tenant by another writ. If he against  whom [the exception] is made did not put in his claim, it suffices if his ancestor did  so, as [in the roll] of Trinity term in the ninth year of king Henry
