Commentary & Paraphrase
Marg' le Horne sued an Appeal of robbery against the cantor (Chau'tor) of Canterbury of a belt of silk, price 10 shillings. The defendant asserted that M. should not be answered, because she was excommunicated, and he showed the letter of the bishop. Scrop CJKB said that then it was proper that he stand over (demurres) until the woman had purchased absolution. The defendant said that he should go free (quite) until she was absolved, and as to the king, he could not have the suit, because the fact was saved (le fait est salve) when she would be answerable. Scrop CJKB said that the defendant had been brought before the Court as a prisoner, so that he could not go free (quite), if he were not acquitted of the suit of the party, or of the king, nor could he be released at mainprise, if this was not to a certain day, and this was not certain, when she would be absolved, and then he found mainprise until the octave of Trinity, (Latin begins) and so from day to day until the woman was absolved etc. (Latin ends).
Note that, in a variant report 1329.171ass = 3 Edw. 3, Lib. Ass. 12, fol. 5b, the defendant is the Chancellor of Canterbury.
