Gobet is first mentioned in the records in May 1372, when he acted as a juror at an inquisition held in Salisbury on the Wiltshire lands of Thomas de Vere, late earl of Oxford. He witnessed a Devizes deed in 1378, and in 1379 he paid as much as 2s. towards the poll tax, his occupation being then given as ‘butcher’. Hav
