Great losses have occurred because the sea defences and land drainage between the port of the town ('villa') of Rye and the bridge of Bodiam in the counties of Kent (sic) and Sussex are not properly repaired and maintained. The king, wishing to provide a remedy, assigns them to survey the walls and other defences, to find out by whose fault the losses have occurred and who holds lands, pastures or fisheries there. They are to carry out distraints, amercements and anything else necessary to pay for the repair, renewal and clearing of the sea defences. They are also to appoint wardens ('custos') for the protection of the sea defences, to hear the accounts of the collectors of money for repairing the defences, to distrain for arrears of these collections and to hear and determine any disputes. They are to compel any who resist to repair the defences. Sent patent. The clerk is Preswyk'. Given at Westminster [Middlesex]. Endorsed with description in 18th cent hand. Norris and Alderman Bunce have catalogued this document as relating to 'Odiam'.
