Nottingham lies along the Trent River which runs to the sea at Hull in Yorkshire.
Richard Gee was included in the Borough Court Rolls of Nottingham for the period 1406 through 1416. It is unclear, if he was a son of Alexander Gee of Rothley, or perhaps a brother or cousin. As early as 1311, there are entries for Richard Joye and his wife Alice in the court rolls. (See Appendix ii.) The entries for Richard Joye continue until 1395, which likely indicates two Richard Joyes. The later entries may be for Richard Gee.
The first entry, in 1403, notes that Richard Gee complained that John de Wodd, barbour owed him a debt of 17d. for an iron horse-shoes (ferr’ eq’) and for curing the horse. Richard claimed he paid nothing a year ago on the debt. John de Wodd said he owed nothing so an inquisition was requested. The following month Richard Gee complained that Peter Joynour had defaulted on a debt. It was not long before John de Wod, barbour, complained against Richard Gee regarding a debt of 4d for making a piece of linen which he was not paid for the past year. Richard Gee said he owed nothing.
Richard Gee with John Ingham, William Fyscher, and John de Wodd were sworn and stood as appraisers for 36 yards of linen cloth at 3d. a yard, 20 yards of hempen linen cloth (de panno lineo de canabo) at 2d. a yard, being the goods of ..de Smalle. Also, the appraised a maslin masin for 10d., another maslin basin for 14d., and a bronze pot for 12d., being the goods of Robert de Melburne. Finally they appraised a cload for 2d. which was the property of Richard Thaker.
The dispute between Richard Gee and John de Wod continued throughout the 1403 rolls. The next entry for Richard was in 1416 when William Corsour complained regarding a debt owed by Richard Gee. He stated that Richard owed him for bread in the amount of 6s.1d., which was due at Christmas in 1413. This case continues throughout the rolls for the year with no conclusion noted.
In 1496, Arnold Gee, escheater, heard an inquisition in Nottinghamshire. The position of escheater was extremely important. When someone who held land of the king died, the excheater was responsible for assessing the value and insuring the king’s interests were protected as well as insuring a proper legal assignment of possession to heirs. The records for 1493-1500 include a suit by William Bele, of Lincoln, merchant against Arnold Jee for payament for wine delivered to David Lewes, Lincoln.
In 1506, Richard Gee took an oath at an inquisition in that county.
