"Of this Guarine, it is stated, that, having heard that William, a valiant knight, sister's son to Pain Peverell, Lord of Whittington, in Shropshire, had two daus.,one of whom, Mallet, had resolved to marry none but a knight of great prowess, and that her father had appointed a meeting of noble men at Peverel's Pace, on the Peke, from which she was to select the most gallant, he came thither, when, entering the lists with a son of the King of Scotland and with a Baron of Burgundy, he vanquished them both and won the fair prize with the lordship and castle of Whittington.
