18 Nov. 1422
Dublin
To John Founteyns esq., escheator of Ire.

William Bonell, Peter Tanner and William Payne, chaplains, have pleaded to the K. that Henry IV, by letters patent dated at Westminster, 1 Nov. [1412] 14 Hen. IV,1 granted that the mayor of the town of Drogheda for the time being should be escheator there, forever, [and that no] escheators of the K. within cos. Meath and Louth, for the time being, might enter the said town, nor the suburbs, bounds [or] precincts of the same, nor presume to send any person within the same to perform that office there in any way; and that the escheators of the said town may have the same jurisdiction and liberty and all other things pertaining to the office of the escheatorship in the town, suburbs and precincts as other escheators of the K. have elsewhere within Ire., just as [etc.]; and Henry V confirmed those letters.

The said William [Bonell], Peter [Tanner] and William [Payne] were seised in their demesne as of fee of 1 messuage in Drogheda, and they were removed from the same by colour of a certain inquisition [ipsi inde fuerunt amoti colore cujusdem officii] taken before Henry Stanyhurst, deputy of John Pylkyngton junior, kt, formerly the K.'s escheator, who did not have power to take that inquisition in that town. ORDER to remove [the K.'s] hand.2

1 The Latin text of RCH is translated in Rev. Matthew Devitt, ‘Dame Anastasia Wogan’s Dower’, Journal of the Kildare Archaeological Society, 3 (1902), 88–97. In a prefatory note Devitt records his thanks to ‘Mr. McEnery and Mr. Radcliff, of the Record Office, Dublin, … for the trouble they took in making the translation, and comparing it with the original.’ I have drawn on Devitt’s explanatory glossary (ibid., p. 97) in the notes that follow.
2Colthous is probably a mistake in the enrolment for colvhous or colverhouse, a dovecot; otherwise it must mean a stable’ (ibid., p. 97).
3Logshepyn is evidently intended for longshepyn, a long sheep-fold. Torshous is probably a similar mistake for torehous, a tower-house’ (ibid., p. 97).
4 Devitt gives this as ‘bawn’ (ibid., p. 88).
5 Devitt gives this as ‘mill’ in error (ibid., p. 88).
6 Devitt glosses this as the Irish fiodh, a wood (ibid., p. 97); cf. DIL, s.v.
7 Devitt glosses clyth’ as the Irish cladh (ibid., p. 97); which is given as 'ditch or trench' in DIL (s.v.).

It has been found by inquisition that John de la Mare—who was lately seised in his demesne as of fee of 1 messuage and 1 acre of land in Herbertestoun near Foghyn, co. Meath1—was outlawed for various felonies and that, after John's death, Thomas Graunt and Nicholas Rowe occupied the said messuage and land, which are held of William Darcy as of his manor of Martry.2 Thomas [Graunt] now says that John was not outlawed, and that one John Bonebos was lately seised in his demesne as of fee of 40 acres of land and one third of a messuage in Herbertestoun, and gave them to the said Thomas, to have to him and his heirs forever. For this reason the said Thomas was seised of the same until he was removed by colour of the said inquisition [colore officii predicti]; those 40 acres of land and one third of the said messuage are parcels of the messuage and carucate of land contained in that inquisition. He seeks judgement [etc.]. ORDER to remove the K.'s hand from those 40 acres and one third of a messuage.

To the escheator.

It has been found by an inquisition taken in the time of Henry V that Peter son and heir of Edmund Hussey did not hold any lands or tenements of Richard II in demesne, in fee nor in service on on the day he died, but that one Richard Roem [sic] was previously seised in his demesne as of fee of the manors of Galtrim and Moylussy, and of 1 messuage and 80 acres of land in Cavestoun; 1 messuage and 120 acres of land in Rosmyde; 10 acres of land in Michellestoun; and 1 messuage and 40 acres of land in Clonarnyn. And he gave the same manor, lands and tenements to Hugh Hussey kt for the lifetime of Hugh, to have of the chief lords of those fees by accustomed service, such that after Hugh's death the said manors, lands [etc.] shall remain entirely to William Hussey and Beatrice his wife, and the heirs of their bodies; and if they should die without heirs of their bodies then they shall remain entirely to the right heirs of the said Hugh forever. The said William and Beatrice were seised of the same, and they had lawful issue Jo[hn Hus]sey kt.2 After the death of the said William and Beatrice, John, as their son and heir, was seised of the same; and he had issue John, Edmund, Margaret and Joan. And after the death of John Hussey kt, the said John s. of John was seised of the same, and he had issue Paula, his daughter and heir. After the death of John, son of John [Hussey] kt, Paula was seised of the same, and she died as a minor and without issue. After her death the said Edmund [Hussey] was seised; and he had issue Peter and Margaret. After the Edmund’s death, Peter was seised of the same and died without issue. After his death, the said Margaret, his sister, was seised of the same while she was sole [dum sola fuit]; and afterwards, having married Robert Orell, she died seised of the same without issue. And the said Peter held, on the day he died, the said manors of Roger, son and heir of Edmund Mortimer, late earl of March, as of his manor of Trim, by knight service, Roger then being a minor. And Peter held, on the day he died, those lands [etc.] in Cavestoun, Rosmyde and Michellestoun of William Nugent kt, late baron of Delvin, and Katherine his wife, by right of the said Katherine as of her manor of Delvin, by knight service; and the lands in Clonarnyn’ of John Tuite, as of his manor of Sonnagh, by fealty and suit of court for all service.

The said manor was worth 40m true value, and the said lands [etc.] in Cavestoun, Rosmyde and Michellestoun 6m; and the said lands [etc.] in Clonarnyn 13s 4d.

Peter died in 14 Ric. II [1390x1], and the said Margaret and Richard Bathe are cousins and next heirs of the said Peter; and Margeret, previously wife of Robert Orell, occupied the said manor of Galtrim with various lands [etc.] in Cave[stoun, Rosmyde, Mi]chellestoun and Clonarnyn; and Matthew Hussey kt occupied that manor with those lands [etc.], by what title the jurors know not; and Margaret Petit, previously wife of the said Matthew, occupied one third of the said manor [etc.], by what title the jurors know not; and Thomas Talbot kt occupied two thirds of the said manor [etc.], by what the title the jurors know not; and Edmund Mortimer, earl of March and Ulster, occupied the manor of Galtrim because of letters patent of Henry V granting custody to him; and Barnaby Travers occupied two thirds of the lands in Cavestoun, Rosmynde and Clonarnyn because of letters patent of Henry V granting custody to him; and the said lands [etc.] in Michellestoun used to lie waste and were worth nothing p.a., and no one occupied them. And Margaret Hussey, late wife of Robert Orell, occupied the manor of Moylussy; and Matthew Husseey kt occupied the same manor; and Nicholas Hussey occupied the same manor.

And now it has been adjudged in chancery that the manors of Galtrim and Moylussy, which are held of the said heir in chief, should be delivered to Margaret, daughter of John Hussey kt, and to Richard Bathe, because they are of her inheritance and they [Margaret and Richard] are of full age, and that K.’s hand should be removed from other lands [etc.] which are held of other lords, and restored to the same Margaret and Richard, saving the right of anyone.

ORDER to cause Margaret and Richard to have full seisin of those manors, and to remove [the K.’s hand] from the lands [etc.] which are held of others, as was said before.

To the escheator.

The K. has learned by inquisition taken by that office [of escheator] in the time of Henry V that one John fitz Rowe, who was lately seised in his demesne as of fee of 160 acres of land in Lagagh, killed one Margaret Betagh. On account of that felony he was outlawed, and thus outlawed he died seised. Whereupon Thomas Andrewe and Walter Ferrour, chaplains, appearing in chancery, say that one Matthew fitz Rowe was lately seised in his demesne as of fee of 80 acres in Lagagh, and enfeoffed the said Thomas and Walter of the same land, to have to him and his heirs forever. By force of this enfeoffment they were seised until they were removed by colour of the said inquisition. Those 80 acres are a parcel of the said 160 acres; and they seek that the K.'s hand be removed from those 80 acres and restoration be made to them, together with the issues, so that the escheator or his deputy, who took that inquisition by authority of his office, might have no power to inquire concerning felonies. Furthermore it was decided that the reason for that seizure, having been viewed in chancery, was invalid in law. ORDER to remove the [K.'s] hand from those 80 acres and to restore that land with the issues received from it, to the same Thomas and Walter, always saving the K.'s right.

To the escheator.

It has been found by an inquisition that James Uriell held in demesne as of fee on the day he died of [Henry V … … 1 caruc]ate and half an acre in Kylbryde; 2 messuages and 60 acres of land [in … … …, and that] Roger Firter and Walter Skynner, chaplains, [previously] were seised [in their demesne as of fee, of 1] messuage and 1 carucate of land in Sutton, 9 [messuages and … … … of land in Swords, which messuage and land in Sutton and Swords were held] of John, archbishop of Dublin, as of right of his church, and of his manor of Swords, by [service] of 40s [… …] which are worth 40s p.a. beyond reprises.

The said Roger and Walter, being thus s[eised … … grant]ed to Roger s. of William Uriell the said messuage and land, to have to him and the heirs male of his body. By virtue of that gift, the said Roger s. of William was seised of the said messuage and land, and he died thus seised. After his death, Thomas Uriell, as his son and heir, entered into those messuages and land, and had issue James and Robert Uriell; and he died seised; and after his death James Uriell entered and died seised, without heirs male of his body; and the said messuages and land ought to descend to Robert Uriell by virtue of the said gift.

Whereupon the said Robert has pleaded that the K.'s hand be removed from the said messuages and land in Sutton and Swords, which are held of the archbishop of Dublin. ORDER that, having retained in the K.'s hand those lands [etc.] that are held of the K. until otherwise ordered, he is to remove the K.'s hand from the said messuages and land which [are held of the said archbishop].1

The K. [has learned] by inquisition that M[atilda] dcd, late wife of John Talbot kt, held in her demesne as of fee on the day she died [of Henry V in chief, the manor of … … … by] knight service, which is worth 100s p.a. beyond reprises [… … … and that the same Matilda held, in her demesne] as of fee on the day she died of the said Henry V in chief the manor of Loxheuedy [… … … … … which] is worth nothing because it lies waste; and that she did not hold any other lands [etc.] of Henry V in chief on the day she died. And the said Matilda died on 31 May [… …. and that … Talb]ot, son of the same Matilda (who was born of her and the said John Talbot kt, lately her husband, now survivor), is Matilda's next heir and a minor. For that reason the said manors were taken into the hand of Henry V. Now, because the said manors pertain to John Talbot kt to be held by English law, ORDER not to interfere further concerning those manors.1

An act of the [K.'s] council, in which it was recited that Laurence Merbury, C., appearing before the Jcr and council, showed that he has been accused in Eng. of various matters illicitly done by him while he was C. After two or more witnesses were, at his petition, examined upon oath before the said Jcr and council concerning these matters―[including] among others, Walter Sutton, one of the clerks of chancery―it was agreed that the premises should be of record in chancery. These are the matters of which Laurence was accused, viz.:

[1] that he caused a certain writ of liberate to be made, addressed to the T. and chamberlains of the Ex. of Ire., to pay him £50 of his fee of £40 p.a. as C., being in arrears from the time when he was previously C., having already been levied from three tallies, and afterwards returned and destroyed in the receipt of the Ex.; and he improvidently sealed them with the K.'s seal, being in his custody;

[2] item, that he caused another similar writ [to be made], addressed similarly, to pay him 10s a day for his wages from 24 Feb. [1420] 7 [Hen. V] until St Peter in Chains 9 Hen. V [1 Aug. 1421], without any warrant, although he knew that his former patents had lapsed and and fully expired, in deceit of the K. [etc.];

[3] item, that as much as possible John Talbot kt [chiv'], formerly Lt of Ire., satisfied him [Laurence], at Laurence's suit, of all fees and wages due to him from all the time of the said John until 24 Feb. [1420] 7 [Hen. V], although Laurence received, from that 24 Feb., various payments from the K. in the time of the said John, which payments amount to £260 15s 2d, in deceit of the K. [etc.];

[4] item that Laurence, on 26 Feb. [1415], fraudulently, on his own authority, without warrant, ordained and caused to be sealed certain letters patent of the K. under the seal of Ire. to receive 10s a day for his wages from the issues of the hanaper for as long as he occupied the office of C.; and by force of those letters the same Laurence, on 18 March [1422] 9 Hen. V, ordered a writ of liberate [to be made], addressed similarly [to the T. and chamberlains], to cause payment to him of his arrears which were unpaid; and the said T. and chamberlains, because of the same writ, made assignment to him of £216 6s 8¾d; and further by force of the same letters patent, he levied and ordered from John Passavaunt clk, keeper of the hanaper, on various occasions, £374 for his said wages.

To the barons of the Ex.

It was found by inquisition taken before James de la Hyde, escheator, that John s. of Arnold Fleming was seised of 1 messuage and 40 acres in Flemington and died seised of the same; and on the day he died he was outlawed for felony; and he held of Robert Tuite kt by suit of court from month to month, and he died on Tuesday after Christmas 18 Edw. III. Henry Clakeston and Thomas Rede occupied the lands valued at 6s 8d p.a.; and thee land was taken into the hand of Henry V.

And now Thomas Rede and Alice his wife, because of their petition to Richard [Talbot], abp Dublin, and the endorsement of the same, are admitted to the K.'s court of chancery appearing by their attorney, Richard Rowe. They say that Magina Bernard, Alice's mother (whose heir she is), died seised of those lands and that after her death the lands descended to Alice and Thomas, who were seised, but were removed without sufficient reason. They demand justice and seek that the K.'s hand be removed from the premises and restitution made to them of the issues from the time of Henry V. It was agreed in chancery that the lands should be restored, and the escheator, John Fountains, has been ordered to remove the K.'s hand. ORDER to release Thomas and Alice, or the farmers of the land, from all distraints.
