If a lord wrongfully defers or refuses to take his tenant's homage.
 Suppose a lord, bound to take the homage of his tenant, wrongfully delays or  refuses it, fraudulently perhaps, so as not to be bound to warrant; the tenant may  then be provided for in many ways. In the first place he is relieved of service, to  which he is in no way bound unless his homage has been taken. And if it must  [later] be taken as a result of plea and judgment, the lord will lose all arrears.  Having offered his homage in the presence of witnesses in the county court or in  the court of his lord, and having been categorically refused, the tenant, if he wishes,  may attorn himself to the superior chief lord, and if he refuses his homage, to the  next, and so from lord to lord until he reaches the king himself, who is the first  lord of all [descending, and the last ascending] and the ultimate heir of all heirs.  When the tenant has so attorned himself to a superior lord and the latter taken his  homage the lord who refused it may henceforth claim neither service nor homage,  [nevertheless he will be bound to warrant, once it is established that he wrongfully1  refused the homage,]2 [for] service follows him to whom homage is done. 3<And what  if the superior chief lord refuses the homage of the tenant when it is offered him,  after the inferior lord has wrongfully refused it? Service will no more be done to him  than to the inferior lord who ought to be mesne, and the same may be said of all other  superior chief lords.> [It will be otherwise] if the tenant attorns himself to the  superior chief lord without such justification or other sufficient reason. [If] the  tenant does homage to a superior chief lord or to a stranger by coercion of distress  and against his will and the true lord claims it, the tenant may not withdraw,  without judgment, from him to whom he has done homage.4 In that case, when the  true lord demands of his tenant that he do him the customs and right services he  ought to do him from the free tenement he holds of him in such a vill, as in homages,  reliefs, rents etc.,5 or that he do him homage and relief from that fee etc.,6 when  such [tenant] appears he may either acknowledge7 that he ought to hold that fee of  him, and would willingly do him homage and service if he could withdraw from the  lord who took his homage by coercion of distress, or utterly disavow8 the true lord,  saying that he holds nothing of him.9 If he avows him, as aforesaid, let the superior  chief lord or the non-lord stranger then be summoned to appear on a certain day to  show what right he claims in the homage and service of the aforesaid tenant by  reason of an inheritance which belonged to the ancestor of the same tenant in such  a vill, whence such a one (the true lord, that is)
