For those who might be interested, a case of Common Recovery involving William Cecil and his mother. This was a legal fiction where they "recovered" possession of the property.

Hilary 1562
Nhants. William Cecill, knight, chief secretary for the Queen, and Jane Cecill, widow (his mother), versus Roger Cave, esq. Two messuages, two gardens, 200 acres of land, 60 acres meadow, 30 acres pasture, 15 acres wood in Yelvertoft & Lelborn. Common Recovery.

By the way Roger /Cave/ of Stanford, Northants; Gent -1553-1561-
had on 24 Nov 1561 St Clement Danes, London
married William's sister Margaret /Cecil/

Perhaps this was related to that marriage

Thanks for that. You could be right.
