Several new indexes have been posted. Rosemary has three new indexes for 1349 and three for 1484. I have new indexes for 1416, 1420, 1425, 1427, and 1563, and a couple more should be coming within the next day to two.

Thank you, Vance and Rosemary.

I would be interested in learning more about the following case:
CP40/887, Hilary Term, 1484
f 228 Warws forcible entry
Culpepur, Agnes, widow, formerly wife of John Culpepur, knight
vs
Haryngton, Robert, of Pynchebek, Lincs, gent; Haryngton, William, of Exton, Rutl, gent; Haryngton, Thomas, of Exton, gent; Fosebrok, Thomas, of Leicester, Leics, shoemaker; Fossebroke, William, of Coventry, yeoman; Alen, John, of Herteshull, Warws, yeoman
http://aalt.law.uh.edu/AALT3/R3/CP40no887/aCP40no887fronts/IMG_0228.htm

The case was continued in Trinity term, 1484, CP40/889
d 902 forcible entry
Culpepur, Agnes, widow & formerly wife of John Culpeper, knight
vs
Haryngton, Robert, of Pynchebek, gent; Haryngton, William, of Exton, Rutl, gent; Haryngton, Thomas, of Rutland, gent; Fossebroke, Thomas, of Leicester, Leics, shoemaker; Fossebroke, William, of Coventry, yeoman; Alen, John, of Herteshull, Warws, yeoman
http://aalt.law.uh.edu/AALT3/R3/CP40no889/bCP40no889dorses/IMG_0902.htm

It was continued again in Michaelmas term, 1484
f 6 Warws forcible entry
Culpeper, Agnes, widow
vs
Haryngton, Robert, of Pynchbek, Lincs, gent; Haryngton, William, of Exton, Rutl, gent; Haryngton, Thomas, of Exton, gent; Fossebroke, Thomas, of Leicester, Leics, shoemaker; Fossebroke, William, of Coventry, yeoman; Alen, John, of Herneshull, Warw, yeoman
http://aalt.law.uh.edu/AALT3/R3/CP40no890/aCP40no890fronts/IMG_0006.htm
and
d 1460 Warws trespass: close, felling & taking
Culpepur, Agnes, widow
vs
Harryngton, Robert, of Pynchebek, Lincs, gent; Harryngton, William, of Exton, Rutl, gent; Harryngton, Thomas, of Exton, gent; Fosbroke, Thomas, of Leicester, Leics, shoemaker; Fosbroke, William, of Coventry, yeoman; Alen, John, of Herteshull, Warws, yeoman
http://aalt.law.uh.edu/AALT3/R3/CP40no890/bCP40no890dorses/IMG_1460.htm

Where and when did the forcible entry (trespass, felling and taking) occur, and is there anything of interest mentioned?

This case indicates that John Culpeper's wife Agnes Gainsford outlived him and was living in Michaelmas term, 1484. A memorial inscription indicates that John Culpeper died 22 December 1480 (https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=uc1.31822035069574;view=1up;seq=368).

The forcible entry was in the manors of Hertesull, Ansley or Ausley, and Monewode.

The trespass was at Herteshull and Ansley and they took trees and underwood worth 20 marks.

It's interesting to see how many executors are listed in these records for people who have no surviving will in the PCC or local probate courts.

I've noticed that too. There must have been a lot of wills that did not survive.

The descriptions of the executors in these cases often state the relationship of a named executor to the deceased, which is very useful.

In 1349 there are three terms indexed: Hilary, Easter, and Michaelmas. In the Edward III index, http://aalt.law.uh.edu/EdwardIIIB.html, there is an unnumbered term listed with CP40/359 (Michaelmas). Was there no separate roll for the Trinity term in 1349, perhaps because of the plague?

The summer of 1349 was when the Black Death was at its worst in England, so that must have been the case.
