(i) Letters patent dated at Westminster, 28 May [1400] 1 Hen. IV,3 confirming other letters dated at Westminster, 1 March [1399] 22 Ric.

(ii) Letters patent dated at Westminster, 27 Jan. [1406] 7 Hen. IV,5 by which Henry IV (reciting that he had granted to Thomas Monyn £20 p.a. for his life of the fee-farm that the prior and brethren are bound to render for the said castle and manor and for Chapelizod), granted those £20 to Edward Perers and Joan his wife, for their lives and the lifetime of the survivor, on account of the service of Edward and because Thomas had returned those letters to be cancelled with the intention that Edward and Joan his wife might have the said annuity.

The church of Leighlin was lately vacant by the resignation of Richard [Bocomb], formerly bishop, and Pope Martin V provided to the same church (which is in sacred gift) John [Ó Maolagáin], then rector of the parish church of the Lyn, diocese of Meath, who was the elect and appointee of Leighlin; and the pope placed him in charge of that bishopric, just as appears by papal bulls addressed to Henry V and shown in the chancery of Ire.1 Because the bishop-elect has expressly renounced all and singular words prejudicial to the K. and his crown contained in those letters, and has humbly submitted himself to the K.'s grace, the K. has taken the fealty of the professed, and has restored the temporalities of his said bishopric [of Leighlin], as is customary.2

And for those costs, Richard Nugent, baron of Delvin, seneschal of the liberty of Meath, and others of that county were bound to the earl [of Desmond]; and the same Richard surrendered himself to the custody of the said earl for that reason.

In response to a writ of certiorari dated 1 Hen. V [1413x14] as to the reason for taking into the K.'s hand the manor of Kyllynconle, which formerly belonged to Anne Cruys, it was found that Anne held that manor of the K. in chief by knight service, and died seised. Whereupon Henry Saundys chaplain displayed his petition showing that Anna was seised of fee of that manor, and enfeoffed Henry and John White chaplain, and their heirs; and that Henry IV pardoned all intrusions made by Anne. It was found that John Gernoun, son of Thomas Gernoun, son of Anne, was her next heir, and was married to Margaret Taaff long before Anne's death. […].
