Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Latin

I don't know anymore where I got this from nor do I know what it means.  I am not asking for anyone to translate it for me word for word, but a rough idea of what it means.  I must have got it because it has Benjamin Wykham/Wykwan mentioned.  Wykhams are in my tree but very early on 1360 and prior. And my lot are Henry, Maud and Agnes in Sussex. 

Any help appreciated.

I just want to understand what these mean this is 1715 in Worth.  Beside the names on the left is an initial I think they are all the same, and on the right would there have been figures, monetary figures, what was this for, is this a tax?

The History of the Parish of Hailsham has under the heading, the letters in the subject line, I assumed they must be roman numerals, although some of them I had never seen before but I doubt that now.  However I can't find out what they mean.

I have a list of people from a 1322 petition of the community of the Lowy of Pevensey, members of the Kings port of Hastings, addressed to the King and Council.  One of the people on this is John Willard atte Doune.  I assume that Doune was a place and have tried finding it or something similar in that area.  (It is definitely not the Scottish castle)  Any help appreciated.
