    The following information about John was taken from the Culpepper Family Website, gen.culpepper.com, citing as a source, R.E., F.S.A. and Rev. J.H.L. Booker, M.A. Col. F.W.T. Attree, "The Sussex Colepepers," Sussex Archaeological Collections XLVII:

    Thomas de Colepeper was a Recognitor of the Grand Assize. The Grand Assize was a judicial proceeding or inquiry, and the Recognitors, who were summoned on such a tribunal, were the jurors. Their function was to investigate all cases involving questions of right. As Recognitors were probably neighbors of the disputing parties, they were bound to "recognize" and speak the truth concerning the matter at issue. - From "The Sussex Colepepers", published in the "Sussex Archaeological Collections", Volume XLVII, 1904, pp. 48-49.
