April 4, 1279  Robert Bolle won a suit against Robert de Pollercroft whose land at Algerkirk was then seized by the king and Pollercroft is asking to recover his possession.  Does not mean that Robert held the land at any point.  This may be the Pulvertoft/Pulverton  family of Algerkirke which Randolph married into.

 

'Robert de Pollercroft came before the king, on Saturday after St. Leo the Pope, and sought to replevy his land in Algerkirk, which was taken into the king's hands for his default in the king's court against Robert Bolle.'

Patent Rolls in the Reign of Richard II, Vol. V, p. 109

 

This was an inquiry into whether William Bolle and two others (probably feofees on his land grant) may alienate some land to the chaplain of the church of Wygtoft in Holand.  The land in Wigtoft is 28a. of arable and 5 1/2 a. of meadow, held of the honour of Richmond.  The premises to be retained are 'land and tenement(s)', and according to the Calendarium are to remain to William Bolle alone. The Calendarium also says the grant included 'suit of court' in Stevening (modern Steyning, Stenning), which may mean that the messuage and lands in Wigtoft were part of a manor of Stevening and owed suit of court to it.  The Manor of Stevening was held then by the de Holand family)

Appointment as a Justice for the Enfordement of the Statutes of Labourers

After the Black Death epidemic of 1348-49 with the death of perhaps half of England's population, primarily in the poorer classes, landowners were faced with a scarcity of labourers to work their fields.  In order to prevent the inevitable increase in wage demands that would result, Parliament passed a Statute of Labourers that set wages at the levels prior to the catastrophe.  However, when there is demand there is money to be made and people who will take the opportunity to make it.  Offending labourers who accepted higher salaries from desperate landowners with less influence could then be fined by the sheriffs, stewards and bailiffs employed by the large landowners in order to protect their own interests.  The fines collected often didn't make their way in to the Royal Treasury.  Those abuses resulted in the King's appointment of Commissioners throughout England to Enforce the Statute of Labourers.
 
 
There is a further reference to this appointment in the book The Enforcement of the Statutes of Labourers During the First Decade After the Black Death 1349-1359 by Bertha Haven Putnam.  Sher includes the following reference in her List of the 671 justices responsible for the enforcement of the statutes during the decade: The reference is to the Patent Rolls, first number is for the Edw III regnal year
