      "Proclamations concerning the land of J. EDGOOSE
      At this court proclamations of land were made, that if anyone claimed title to the barn, stable and four acres (with buildings erected thereupon) of customary land of the aforesaid manor, more or less, with the appurtenances, situated, lying and being in Pinchbeck, Between the lands late of John EDGOOSE in part and Stile gate in part towards the West, The lands of the said John EDGOOSE towards the North, and abbutting upon Reedy Graft towards the South, And the lands of Maurice JOHNSON gentleman and Mary LESSEE spinster toweards the East, Late the lands of John EDGOOSE, formerly of John BETTS and at one time of Mary DAWSON widow, He should come into court and proffer evidence, and take the premises from the hands of the Lords of the manor, otherwise the Lords would enter, for default of a fine and a tenant; But no-one came to this court, therefore they should make a further proclamation at the next court."
      NB This proclamation was repeated on 18 October 1717 (folio 22v), 8 November 1717 (folios 27v and 28), and 2 May 1718 (folio 43).

      The HEIRS OF John EDGOOSE were listed amongst the tenants of Stone Hall, Frampton, before 1719.
      (BM Egerton Roll 2023 mem. 2)

      The court rolls of Spalding cum Membris show that in 1728 John EDGOOSE's grandson John EDGOOSE appeared before the manor court with his wife Mary (who was examined alone and secretly by the deputy steward and freely consenting) and surrendered all his premises, customary lands and tenements etc..
      There may be an anomaly here: who was John EDGOOSE's heir: his grandson John EDGOOSE or his grandson Thomas EDGOOSE?
