Article 8

Common pleas are not to follow the king’s court, but are to be appointed to some fixed place. And recognitions are to be held in the same counties, in this manner: the king is to send two justices four times in the year, who with four knights of the same county, chosen by the county court, are to take assizes of novel disseisin, mort d’ancestor and darrein presentment, nor is anyone to be summoned on account of this except the jurors and the two parties.
