John Styward, late vicar of Ardee, John Frenssh and Walter Gernoun were seised in demesne as of fee of 6 messuages and 22 acres of land, with appurtenances, in Ardee by gift and enfeoffment of John Gernoun of Molynestoun, and they demised them in farm to the prior and convent of the Carmelite Friars of Ardee for 57 years from Tuesday after the close of Easter 46 Edw. III [1372]. William Myntelyng, formerly deputy of Thomas Clifford kt, formerly the K.'s escheator of Ire., seized the premises into the K.'s hand by colour of an inquisition taken before him and returned to the K.'s chancery of Ire., in which it was stated that the said Walter was seised of the messuages [etc.] in demesne as of fee and had demised them as above. Afterwards, because of an inquisition taken before Thomas Hill, formerly the K.'s escheator in co. Louth, and similarly returned into chancery, it was found that the messuages [etc.] had been demised to the prior and brethren for the term stated and that, in collusion with Walter Gernoun, John Dowdall brought a writ of right in the common bench of Ire. against Walter without mentioning John Styward and John Frenssh, although they were then alive; and he recovered the messuages [etc.] by judgement of the court, so that the prior and brethren might be deprived of their term as they had not been forewarned of the suit.

In consideration of the premises, and of the right of the prior and brethren, of the K.'s special grace, for charity sake and for the souls of the K. and his progenitors, GRANT to the prior and brethren that they may hold the messuages and lands for the remainder of their term.

Footnotes: 

1 This is the first of a series of warrants for issue (§§8–53 below) transcribed onto a roll of the proceedings before the king's council in Ireland for 16 Ric. II (1392–3). The originals are mostly in Latin and were published without translation in PKCI. Warrants of this kind are less numerous on the roll than transcripts of petitions in French presented before the Jcr and council, which were then endorsed and transmitted to the chancery with instructions in pursuance for the issue of letters under the g.s. of Ire. Details from these endorsements have not been included in CIRCLE: the texts may be consulted in translation in PKCI. The roll also contains a series of warrants given under the p.s. of the chief governor of Ire. These do not appear in CIRCLE because they were not enrolled in the close roll, although their contents are similar in certain respects to letters close. For discussion of the diplomatics, see Steven G. Ellis, 'Privy seals of chief governors in Ireland, 1392–1560', BIHR, 51:124 (1978), esp. 189–90.
