XXXI. If any one that holds of us a Lay-Fee, dies,
' and the Sheriff or our Bailiff fhew our Letters Patents
' of Summons concerning the Debt, due to us from the
' deceafed ; it /hall be lawful for the Sheriff or our Bai-
' liff to attach and regifter the Chatties of the deceafed
' found upon his Lay-Fee, to the value of the Debt, by
' the view of lawful Men, fo as nothing be removed

his Palace j and by aliauo certs loco, the Bank. So that by this Claufe, the Bank might be erected, or rather confirmed and effablifhed. It is likely how-
ever, the Bank was not nrft eiecled in the feventeenth of King J<hn. For there is mention in the twenty third and twenty fourth Chapters of that
Kind's Charters, of the Jufticiarii noftri de Banco, which (hews, there was a Court called the Bunk, before, or at lealt, at that time. In truth, there
was a Court called the Bank, and Jufticiers filled Juftlciartt de Banco feveral Years belcrc, as appears by Records. About the time the Common Picas
were movin" off from the Kind's Court, certain Phrafes were introduced, that were not before in geneial Vic. Such as Curia Regis apud IVefln^naftc-
rium, Jufticiarii Regis de Weft, or apud Weft \ Baneus, and Jufticiarii de Banco. See Mag. Rot. 7 R. I. Rol. iS. 9 R. I. Rol. II. zj- Ror. ~.
&c,' So that it leems likely, that the Bank not being yet completely fettled, the Perfon who was the chief Juflicier of England, ufed to lit and act
at this time, as well in the Bank, as in the King's Court, and the Exchequer. Moreover, though there was a Bank in the former part of King John's
Reign , yet it feems, even at the end of his Reign, Common Pleas were not compleatly leparated from the King's Couit. For in the Claule, Communia
Placita non Jejuantur noftram Curiam, it is implied that Common Pleas did then, in fome mcafure, follow the King's Coutt. Upon which gr und it is or-
dered, they mould not for the future follow the King's Court, but be held in aliauo certo Leo. However this Claufe in King Join's Charter, did not
pre cmly quite take away from the King's Court the former ufage of dealing in Common Pleas, cr completely annex them to the Bank. For the Lmc
Claufe was inferted Verbatim in the Great Charter of the 9th of Henry III. See Mag. Ret. z H. III. Ret. 2. Jo Hen. Ill, ©V. In the Reign of
King John, after the ereaing of the Bank, the Style of the fuperior Court began to alter. By degrees, the Phiafe Curia Regis, went inn dim e. And
the Pleas and Proceedings in that Court, were frequently laid to be Coram Rege, or Domino Rege ; and in procels of time, Coram Domino Rrge ubicunqut,
ice. Sec Mag. Rot. 6 J. Ret. 16. I I J- Roe. 4. &c. Agninfr what has been faid, are urged G/anvil's words. Coram Jufticih in Banco fedentibus or
refidentibus, wh ch, it is faid, prove the Bank was in being in his Time, namely, in the Re gn of Henry IJ. But Madcx fh.ws, thefe words mean only
the Jnlbicei fitting in the Curia Regis in Banco, upon the Bench, that is, in open 'nd folemn Court. See Hi/' Excbcj. Chsp. XIX.
