The dispute was arbitrated by the Earl of Bedford, John Selden, William Petre and William Noye. The manors disputed were Rockwardine [ Wrockwardine], Cheswardine, Taseley [ Tasley] , Hulton, (possibly Hilton) in Shropshire and Southwingfeild [ South Wingfield] and Criche [ Crich] in Derbyshire. The arbitrators decided to distribute the lands equitably by placing lots into a hat box.
