Huchoun paid maltolts in Hospital ward, Romney, from 1379 to 1395. Outside the town he owned land in the neighbouring Kentish hundreds of St. Martin’s and Langport, on which he claimed exemption from taxes between 1373 and 1385.3 On several occasions in the 1380s he was sent to Dover to certify the correctness of the indentures listing the names of other Portsmen from Romney similarly exempt from contributing to the parliamentary fifteenths.4
