Offices Held


As a resident burgess Chuse was one of the jurors who, at an inquisition held in 1399, gave evidence concerning property granted by Robert Veel* and others for a chapel in Holy Trinity church, Dorchester. He himself owned tenements in all parts of the town: in April 1401, for example, he sold to John Crocker one in West Street which he had inherited from his father; and in 1404, he and his wife conveyed to Robert Crocker property on South Street which they held of the Crown.
