The said king also gave a license to Eichard de Malebise to fortify a castle at Oweldric ; but after he had nearly built it, the citizens of York, thinking that this had been done to their detriment and disgrace, prevailed upon "William de Stnteville, at this time sheriff of York, on the king's behalf, to forbid Richard âeTIalëbise to~fortTfy the said castle, and accordingly in that state it remained. In the same year, William de Stuteville gave to John,Jring of England, three thousand marks of silver, to obtain judgment for the harony of "William de Mowbray, which the said "William d^TStutéville claimed in the king's court, against the said "William de Mowbray.

It ought also to be known, that Robert de Stuteville, the father of the before-named William de Stuteville, in the time of Icing Henry the Second, laid claim to the said barony against Roger de Mowbray, the father of the before-named William de Mowbray; on which an arrangement was made between them, by which Roger de Mowbray gave to Robert de Stuteville Kirby-in-Moreshead, with its appurtenances, together with nine4 8 knight's fees, for his homage, in full discharge of his claim. But, because this arrangement had not been confirmed in the king's court, and sanctioned by his authority, the said AVilliam de Stuteville again laid claim to the said barony, in the court of John, king of England.
