William Wellesley kt has shown by his petition to the Jcr and council that he had been sheriff of co. Kildare for a long time, and meanwhile laboured in the K.'s services upon wars both in Munster, Meath and Leinster and also elsewhere, together with various men-at-arms in his company at his own expense; and he lost a great many kinsmen, horses and equipment in those wars, to his great impoverishment. He seeks a suitable reward. As the truth of the petition is sufficiently known, the K. has granted him £100, by the advice of the council, to have from the treasury by name of reward. ORDER to pay him that sum.

The K. appointed Alan Furlong as his attorney both in the Ex. and common bench during good behaviour, with such fee and rewards as Henry Michell, formerly K.'s attorney, had; and it appears that Henry received a fee of 5m p.a. As he was unable to live upon this fee, and because he had applied himself with greater diligence than other attorneys, Edward III granted him 33s 4d p.a. beyond his fee by name of reward. ORDER to pay the arrears from both for a quarter year.

Footnotes: 

1 Item §13 is listed in RCH as part of a bundle (§§12–13), but the text of §13—a writ of liberate pursuant to a memorandum (§12)—appears to have been omitted from the calendar. It is likely that the date and place given in RCH at the foot of §12 (at p. 151) originally belonged to the writ of liberate, as memoranda are normally undated.

Kilkenny
To the sheriff of Dublin.

Lately, by advice of the Jcr and council, the K. ordained for a parliament to be held at Castledermot on the next Thursday after St Valentine the Martyr next [19 Feb. 1394]; however, because it is necessary for the Jcr to be occupied in the K.'s service in Munster and elsewhere, he will not be able attend that parliament on the specified day. Therefore the K. has caused that parliament to be postponed until another day by advice of the said Jcr and council. ORDER to cause it to be proclaimed in co. Dublin in places where it seems to him to be most expedient that all and singular earls, barons, knights, abbots, priors and others summoned by writ to be present in person at that parliament on the said day and place should on no account come for that reason until they receive further order from the K.; and also that the knights elected by the community of the county to appear in that parliament are exonerated from attending for the said reason.

1 The identity of this Bernardus O'Brien is not entirely certain. Brian Sreamach had at least four sons: Tadhg, Mathghamhain, Toirdhealbhach and Brian Óg. He could have had another son Murchadh who predeceased his father, or 'Murgh' could be intended to mean 'Mathghamhain'; but is also possible that the 'Bernardus' in question belonged to a sub-branch of the O'Briens.

Dublin
To the T. and barons of the Ex.

James Butler, e. Ormond, Jcr of Ire., has pleaded to the K. by his petition displayed before the K.'s council in Ire. that 19 tuns of wine of Gascony and Rochell worth £97 6s 8d, having been purchased by the purveyors of the K.'s beloved uncle, Thomas, duke of Gloucester, and placed in Dublin castle by the K.'s order, were delivered to Thomas Everdon, formerly the K.'s clerk appointed to pay wages and rewards to men-at-arms and archers staying in the K.'s service upon his wars in Ire. in the company of Alexander [Balscot], bp Meath, formerly Jcr of Ire. Of these, 5 tuns of wine of Rochell, worth £25 16s 8d, were consumed by the ministers of the earl, while staying within that castle on various meetings and councils held there. Considering the great costs and expenses that the earl has incurred, and which he must incur daily, both in the K.'s wars of Ire. and in councils and meetings held in that land, beyond the fee which he takes in that office each year, he seeks that the K. should grant those five tuns to him in aid of his expenses, and that he should cause Thomas to be exonerated of those five tuns and their cost. By advice of the council, the K. has granted that the earl might have those five tuns of wine of his gift by name of reward, wishing that the said Thomas should be exonerated and acquitted towards the K. of those five tuns and their cost. ORDER to cause Thomas to be entirely exonerated and acquitted in his account to be rendered before them at the Ex. of those five tuns of wine and the said £25 16s 8d.
