or another to whom it does not belong and who has no right, or if he has the other  has a greater right, he acts to the prejudice of the chief lord to whom the marriage  belongs in absolute right. Though it is delivered to him, since the purchaser had  no real seisin in the lifetime of the vendor, because of non-use he cannot vouch  the heir to warranty. 1If heirs while under the potestas of their parents marry  without their consent, they are not on that account to be disinherited but to be  punished in another way, if the parents so wish. 1If unmarried heirs come into  the control of their lords, and the chief lords, when they have right though another  has a greater right, sell the marriage, and he who has the greater right claims the  marriage and the wardship of the heir from the purchaser, there the vendor will be  vouched to warranty. And what is said of one purchaser may be said of several, if  the marriage has been sold to several successively.
A provision applicable where one has ravished an heir.
 2There is a provision made by common counsel concerning heirs within age, if  while so under age they are wrongfully abducted and kept out of the wardship of  their lords by their relatives: that if a layman is convicted of abducting and  marrying off a child without the leave of the chief lord let him restore to the guardian  the value of the marriage and, because of his delict, let his body be delivered  to prison by the bailiffs until he has made amends to the guardian for his wrongful  act and satisfied the king for his trespass. This may be understood of heirs below  the age of fourteen years. If heirs who are fourteen years of age and more, but not  of full age, marry without the consent of their lords to deprive them of the marriage,  and the chief lord of such heir has offered him a reasonable marriage which does  not disparage him and which he ought not to refuse, let his lord then hold his  land beyond his full age, that is, beyond his twenty-first year, for so long a time as  suffices3 to collect the double value of the marriage, according as it is valued by  lawful men or according to what earlier (openly and in good faith) was offered him  for the same marriage, or according to the value that may be established for it in  the king's court. If chief lords and guardians have married those they have in  wardship to villeins or others, such as burgesses, whereby they are disparaged, if  such4 heir is below the age of fourteen years, or of such age that he cannot consent,  then, if his relatives complain, the lord shall lose the wardship completely and all
