Latin term or phrase: eoram
before the listing of a name, surname and age on a document of property ownership. I am not sure there is no typo somewhere as instead of "cognomen" it says "cogneman". When the items are listed, there is just the name, surname and age supplied.

Thanks.

Explanation:
'Eorum' may be a misspelling for 'coram', as 'cogneman' surely is for 'cognomen' ('surname'). Here it seems to mean 'in the presence of', and as a preposition requires its object in the ablative. But the names may not bear any termination, since they often don't have Latin equivilents or loan translations.
