Commission of oyer and terminer to John de Insula, Richard de Bernyngham, Roger de Clitherom and John de Donecastre, on complaint by Robert de Everyngham that Nicholas de Meynille, Thomas Gobarn, William Wodman, John de Eston, John le Kokesone, John Le Levediman, Simon le Warener of Brotton, Robert de Boynton, Laurence son of William Gold of Sexhou and Michael de Rosels, together with others, came by night with horses and arms, and at Everyngham, co. York, abducted Lucy his wife, whom they found there, and carried her away, together with his goods, which they still detain. By fine of 40s. [Calendar of Patent Rolls, Edward II, vol. I, 1307-1313]

see Lucy's page, it appears that these men stole Everinghams wife and some other "property", and were fined. She was not returned and became the wife of de Meynell. There was much fighting over Lucy, she must have been quite a prize, having been married at least 4 times to various Barons, Knights and major land holders. She is described in the Hall of Names research as the "fair but frail daughter of Sir Robert de Thweng, Lord of Kilton.
