office of the judge against the churchwardens of Earls Colne the pavement of the church is broken they are cited and are excommunicated (the excommunication is often written in the margin later so that when dealing with the process of the court it is not correct to assume that the excommunication was done at the same court as the first presentment it was usually done later at another court but they wrote it in by the original presentment)
