48. TO THOMAS STONOR [c. 1425]

This is a fragment of a letter, which from the mention of "master Chaucer" (Thomas Chaucer, who died in 1434) must have been addressed to the first Thomas Stonor. The reference to "Dymmok" indicates that the letter had to do with Ermington. "Wonard" may possibly be William Wynnard, grandfather of Agnes Stonor (see No. 261). John Cottesmore, who was afterwards (1429-1439) a judge of the Common Pleas and chief justice in 1439, was on the commission of peace for Devonshire from 1424 to 1427; he had lands in Berks and Oxfordshire, and his grandson married a grand|daughter of Thomas Stonor (see No. 107). From A.C., xlvi, 87.

. . . so Wonard sende me yn a letter that he koude not speke wyth Dymmok att noe leyser sethen my last beyng at home; boot att the assisis, yf he koude entrete hym to an ende resonable, he and I wuld make an ende alle so wel after oure day as afore: which assis begynnyth a goode while after the decollacion above said: boot I may not be there: wherefore my conceile ys fully that ye yn alle hast doe sende thether letters, or froe my maister Chauceire, or froe my lord of Wyn|chester, or rather than to faile froe your selve, by good avice concevid, and that my maister Cotysmore, that is there justeice &c., may do your erant by mouthe unto Wonard, and so I wote. . . . .

A mon treshonore et tres reverent Sire et Maister Thomas Stonor.
