Walter Lyston is suing him for debt. Is the surname Wottombe or Wolcombe?

In the next line the first word is unclear, but it looks like John Wolcombe is suing the same Walter for debt. The two are bracketed together at the right, with "att" or attached, meaning that goods are seized as security for the debt.

Mead - Herts, Bucks, Essex
Pontifex - Bucks
Goldhurst - London, Middx, Herts
Kellogg/Kelhog - Essex, Cambs

I'm not sure about the first vertical stroke of this next line but from there onwards it looks to be:  ...Jsoca wolcombe...

ADDED:

Alternatlively:  ...Isota wolcombe...

Possibly a form of Isolda?

Thank you both, you are correct it is Wolcombe. I was seeing what I wanted to see - sigh...
