    Gazetteer of Markets and Fairs to 1516 Somerset: On 18 Oct 1303, at the request of John de Meriet, son and heir of John de Meriet, K(ing) Edw(ard), I sent an order for the records of the justices in Eyre at Somerton, Somerset, in 1280, at which time the fair held at Lopen by John de Meriet, the father, had been taken into the king?s hands.  On 29 Mar 1328, it was stated that George de Meriet, lord of Meriet and Great Lopen, lately dead, had claimed that his ancestors had held a fair at Lopen from time out of mind. After the death of his grandfather John de Meriet, his father, John, was a minor and was taken into the king?s ward for eighteen years. During this time the fair was taken into the king?s hands. It was not restored to John when he reached his majority. John died soon after, leaving his son, George, a minor. George was taken into the king?s ward for sixteen years. George had now died, leaving his son John as a minor in the king?s ward. Fair survived, in greatly reduced form, until the 19th century (VCH Somerset, iv, p. 168). 
    By 1363, the manor of Marston Magna had been resumed by the lord and in that year it was held by Cecily, daughter and coheir of the last John de Beauchamp. Ten years later it had passed to Sir John Meriet (d. 1391), son of Cecily's sister Eleanor.
