Three charters, of which two are related deeds for the manor of Weycroft (here spelled Wycroft) in the hundred of Axminister, Devonshire. The first, transferring the property from Robert Dighere of Crewkerne, Somerset, and his wife Avicia to Philip Holman (designated clericus) and John Swaldale, was written in Crewkerne and dated 1 October 1397 (first Monday after the feast of Saint Michael Archangel in the twenty-first regnal year of Richard II). The witnesses were Edmund Pyne, Philip Hampton, John Jewe, John Hunte clericus, and Hugh Sanford. It has one seal tag. The second, transferring the property from Philip Holman clericus and John Swaldale to Thomas Brooke (here Brook) Junior, was written in Weycroft and dated 20 October 1407 (first Thursday after the feast of Saint Luke Evangelist in the ninth regnal year of Henry IV). The witnesses were Sir Thomas Beauchamp, Edmund Pyne, John Peny, John Stalbrygge, and William Boteler. It has two seal tags, one of which has been tied to the seal tag of the earlier deed. The third charter is a final concord documenting the transfer of land in Castell (Castle) and Langemore (Langmoor), in Hawkchurch in east Devon, from deforciants William and Joanna Damerle to querents or plaintiffs Sir Thomas and Joanna Brooke (this Thomas Brooke may not be the same as the one of Weycroft). The transaction was made in Westminister, dated 1408 (tenth regnal year of Henry IV), and the charter has undulating top and left edges and marks written across where it was cut.
