3 more words from 1611
« on: Wednesday 20 December 17 20:48 GMT (UK) »
Another 3 words here I'm having trouble with if anyone can help.
The said
Earle and his Tennants owe  their S..... to the ? and ?
of Macclesfeild


Some more of this text here for comparison of letters
http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=784367.0

The little word looks as if it might start with the same 'L' as the first 'Lordshipp' (in the previous clip)? So possibly 'Leet' as in the Court Leet?

Many thanks

... owe their Suyte to the Leet and Swaynymote ...

suyte = suit

OED suggests that a swainmote was originally a court specific to a forest, attended by freeholders of properties within the forest known as swains -- so presumably this is Macclesfield Forest.

Fantastic! Thanks Bookbox.
Yes, it would be Macclesfield Forest.

Merry Christmas to you, and best wishes for 2018.  :)
