3 Oct. 1423

MEMORANDUM1 that on Friday 24 Sept. [1423] 2 Hen. VI in a certain chamber within the house of the Friars Minor of Drogheda, the venerable father Edward [Dantsey], bp Meath, showed the K.’s letters patent made to Edmund [Mortimer], earl of March and Ulster, of the office of K.’s Lt in Ire., before the venerable father Richard [Talbot], abp Dublin, then Jcr and C. of Ire., and others of the K.’s council, in these words:

‘APPOINTMENT, by advice of the great council, of Edmund [Mortimer], earl of March and Ulster, as the K.’s Lt of Ire., to have from his first landing in Ire. and to continue for nine years. The earl may make, ordain and appoint a sufficient deputy for whom he wishes to answer, as often and whenever it pleases, to keep and have the governance of that land in his absence; and the same earl may do all and singular things that pertain to the office of Jcr of the K.’s said land, and shall have both great power in all ways and means just as the justiciars of the K.’s said land were accustomed to have, use or duly exercise.’2

On the same day the bishop similarly showed before the Jcr and council other letters patent under the seal of Edmund, e. March and Ulster, lord of Wigmore and Clare, granting to the bishop the office of deputy of the Lt in that land, in these words:

‘Edmund, e. March and Ulster, lord of Wigmore and Clare, to all to whom these present letters shall come, greetings.

By assent and advice of his great council, the K. has ordained and appointed the said earl as his Lt of Ire., to have, hold and occupy that office from the first day on which he or his deputy shall land in that land until the completion of the nine years following, receiving in that office according to the form and effect of a certain indenture made between the K. the earl concerning this. The K. has given and granted to the earl by the tenor of those letters patent full power that, as often and whenever it pleases him, he may make, ordain and appoint a sufficient deputy, for whom he is willing to answer, to keep and have the governance of that land. Also the K. has given and granted to the earl, and his deputy for the time being in the earl's absence, by the tenor of those letters patent full power to keep and cause to be kept the K.’s peace and the laws and customs of his land, and to do, exercise and execute all and singular things just as appears more fully in those letters patent made to the earl concerning this. NOTIFICATION that, trusting in the fealty and prudence of his beloved in Christ Edward [Dantsey], bp Meath, the earl has appointed, ordained and constituted him as his deputy in that land during the earl's absence, to keep that land and cause it to be kept and to do, exercise and execute all and singular things contained in those letters patent in the earl's absence, just as the earl would do if he were present in that land in person. With ORDER to all and singular the K.’s officers, ministers and lieges in that land whatsoever, on behalf of the lord K., that they are to be intendant, aiding and favouring to the earl's deputy in his absence in doing and executing the premises.

Given under the earl's seal at his castle of Ludlow on 4 Aug. [1423] 1 Hen. VI.’

After these letters had been viewed and read out before the Jcr and council, the bishop said that he was prepared to fulfil the K.'s wishes and those of the earl in the premises as deputy of the Lt. And the Jcr stated that he wished to consult and discuss this with the council. The bishop withdrew from the council. When the Jcr and council had treated and diligently consulted upon the premises, one Thomas Stynt kt came into the council and displayed a certain writ of the K. to the Jcr of non-interference [breve regium de non intromittendo], in these words:

‘Henry, by grace of God K. of Eng. and France and lord of Ire., to the venerable father in Christ Richard [Talbot], by the same grace bishop [sic] of Dublin, formerly our Jcr in our land of Ire., greetings.

Trusting fully in the fealty and prudence of his beloved cousin Edmund [Mortimer], e. March and Ulster, by advice and assent of the K.'s great council the K. has ordained and constituted him as his Lt of Ire., to have, hold and occupy the office from the first day on which the same earl or his deputy shall land in that land until the completion of a term the nine years following, receiving in that office according to the form and effect of a certain indenture made between the K. and the earl; and that the same earl may do all and singular things that pertain to the office of Jcr of Ire., and may have as great a power in all ways and means just as the Jcr of Ire. was accustomed to have, use or duly exercise at any time in his office, as is contained more fully in the K.'s letters patent made concerning this. ORDER to permit that earl to have and exercise the office according to the tenor of those letters patent; with ORDER not to interfere any further concerning the office of Jcr in Ire. For the K. wishes that the bishop be exonerated towards the K. of the same henceforth.

Witness the K. at Westminster, 20 June [1423] 1 Hen. VI.’

And Thomas displayed another writ to the archbishop as the K.’s C. in Ire., in these words:

‘Henry [etc.] to his C. of Ire., greetings.

Trusting fully in the fealty and prudence of his beloved cousin Edmund [Mortimer], e. March and Ulster, by advice and assent of the K.'s great council the K. has ordained and constituted him as his Lt of Ire., to have, hold and occupy the office from the first day on which the same earl or his deputy shall land in that land until the completion of a term the nine years following, receiving in that office according to the form and effect of a certain indenture made between the K. and the earl; giving and granting to the same earl full power that he, whenever and as often as he wishes, may appoint, ordain and constitute a sufficient deputy for whom he is willing to answer to keep and have the governance of the same land in his absence; and to do and fulfil certain things contained in the K.'s letters patent made concerning this, just as is more fully contained in the same letters patent. ORDER to instruct by writ under the seal used in Ire., which is in the custody of the C. of Ire., all and singular archbishops, bishops, abbots, priors, earls, barons, knights and others the K.'s officers and ministers, lieges and subjects whatsoever of his said land, on the K.'s behalf, to be intendant, advising, obedient and aiding to the K.'s cousin as Lt of that land, and his deputy in his absence, in all and singular things which pertain or might pertain to the office of Lt, whenever and as often as they are requested by that Lt, or his deputy in his absence, on the K.'s behalf.

Witness the K. at Westminster, 26 June [1423] 1 Hen. VI.’

Whereupon―while the C. and council were diligently discussing the premises and the ambiguities and were in doubt as to whether the letters patent of that earl sealed under his own seal were sufficient and whether the C. and council ought to be intendant to the bishop as deputy of the Lt by virtue of the letters of that earl―the bishop came back into the council, and sat as deputy of the Lt to occupy that office according to the tenor of those letters, as appeared evident to the council.

He spoke thus to the C.: ‘Sir, are you willing to preside?’
And the C. answered: ‘To what end should I preside?’
And the bishop said: ‘I wish that the said letters be read out and afterwards I will declare my plan and intention manifestly concerning this’.

And then the C. made open protest before the council that he he was not willing to preside in order to admit the bishop as deputy of the Lt, nor to obey his mandate until he was better advised concerning this. And the bishop said that he was prepared to occupy and exercise the office of deputy of the Lt. And the C. declined to obey his order, and sought that the premises be made of record, and he withdrew immediately from the council.

On Saturday 24 Sept. [1423], the following persons were present in the council chamber:

the venerable father, Richard [Talbot], abp Dublin, C. of Ire.;
John [Swayne], abp Armagh;
Stephen Bray, chief justice of the chief place of the K.;
Roger Hakenshawe, second justice of the chief place;
Richard Sydegrave, chief baron of the Ex.;
Robert Sutton, keeper of the rolls of chancery;
John Wyche, second baron of the Ex.;
John Lowdyngton, one of the barons of the said Ex.;
Christopher Bernevall, the K.’s serjeant-at-laws in Ire.

When they had treated diligently and deliberated amongst themselves upon the insufficiencies of the letters of the earl made under his own seal to the bishop of the office of deputy of the Lt, and the power granted to him in this part, the C. asked of each of the said persons whether or not the C. himself should admit the bishop as deputy of the Lt and obey his mandate.

Each person stated separately that they were in doubt. These things having been done, Thomas Stynt kt came into that council and asked of the C. and council if they wished admit the bishop to the office of deputy Lt and to obey his mandates. The C. answered for himself that he had a colleague who was absent (viz. William Tynbegh, T. of Ire.) and that he wished to consult with him upon the premises.

And because the same C. was in doubt as to what ought of right to be done and lest he should do anything contrary to the laws, customs and privileges of the K. and his land of Ire. in the premises, the C. further said that he did not wish to admit the bishop as deputy of the Lt by virtue of the letters of the earl, nor to obey his mandates in any way until he was advised with more learned deliberation.

And the C. openly before the council required of Thomas, on the K.'s behalf, that because he was soldier of the lord K. he should dispatch himself to the marches of the land in resistance of the malice of the K.’s Irish enemies.

And upon this it was agreed by council that the premises should be enrolled in the rolls of the chancery of Ire and be made of record.

MEMORANDUM that the foregoing was exemplified by advice of council. Given by the council on 3 Oct. [1423].

1 The Harris MS is headed as follows: ‘Deliberation and resolution of the council of Ire. concerning the non-admittance of Edward [Dantsey], bp Meath, as deputy of Edmund [Mortimer], e. March, Lt, because the commission of the same Edward emanated solely under the earl’s own seal.’

The Latin calendar provided in RCH is greatly condensed as follows:

'EXEMPLIFICATION of a certain opinion given in council on Saturday 25 Sept. [1423] 2 Hen. VI before Richard [Talbot], abp Dublin, formerly Jcr [of Ire.]; John [Swayne], abp Armagh; Stephen Bray, chief justice [of the chief place]; and Roger Hakenshawe, second justice of the chief place; Richard Sydegrave, chief baron of the Ex.; Robert Sutton, keeper of the rolls; John Wyche, second baron of the Ex.; John Lowdyngtoun, one of the baron of the Ex.; and Christopher Bernevall, serjeant-at-laws, concerning the sufficiency of letters patent of Edmund, e. March, Lt of Ire., (with power of appointing his deputy in his absence) given under his seal at his castle of Ludlow on 4 Aug. [1423] 1 Hen. VI, by which he appointed Edward [Dantsey], bp Meath, as his deputy in his absence; concerning which sufficiency all the said persons were in doubt, because those letters were sealed under the earl's own seal. The said C. refused to admit the bishop as deputy of the Lt by virtue of those letters until he should be very carefully advised concerning this with deliberation. And it was agreed by the council that the premises should be enrolled in the roll of chancery; and afterwards it was exemplified by advice of council.'

Dublin
To [John Founteyns esq.], escheator.

It was found by inquisition taken in the time of Henry V before Laurence Merbury, then T.; James Uriell; and John Blakeney, justices appointed to inquire, hear and determine in cos. Dublin, Meath, Louth, Kildare and Carlow [etc.], that John s. of Matthew Bathe died seised as of fee of the manor of Rathfagh, and had issue John Bathe. The latter being of full age entered [the same] after the death [of John s. of Matthew], as his heir; and for that reason the said manor was seized into the hand of Henry V.

Upon this Richard Bathe, appearing by William Bathe his attorney―having been admitted to plead and show his right in chancery because of his petition displayed to Richard [Talbot], abp Dublin, Jcr of Ire., and the council, and the endorsement of the same―says that he was seised as of fee of the said manor until he was removed from the same by colour of the said inquisition. And because there is insufficient substance in the said inquisition for that seizure, he seeks that the K.'s hand be removed.

Upon this it was decided that the reason for the taking [those lands into the K.'s hand] was insufficient in law. ORDER to remove the K.'s hand.

The K. has been shown by petition of John Gees, bishop of Lismore and Waterford, that the pope provided him as bishop of those bishoprics, which were vacant by the death of Roger Appylby; and because of that provision, the said John was in possession of the same and obtained livery of their temporalities on 11 July [1410] 11 Hen. IV. One Thomas Colby, bp Elphin, sued by false suggestion for bulls of Pope John of translation to those bishoprics, which bulls emanated fraudulently, as the said John Gees was not summoned to this; and by pretext of those bulls Thomas had livery of the temporalities of those bishoprics in the time of Henry V. Afterwards John Gees sued for restitution in the court of Rome, and was restored to those bishoprics by the pope by sentence of the said court of Rome; and those bulls of translation were adjudged as naught in law, just as [etc.]; and the same Thomas afterwards died [etc.]. ORDER to restore John to his temporalities.

It was agreed in council that Geraldus Okevanagh, brother of Donatus McMurgh, chieftain of his lineage―on account of his various labours upon ruling and treating for peace with various Irish enemies of Leinster, and especially for restoring himself to the peace and serving the K. faithfully, just as he took his oath―, should have 40m of the K. in the name of the said Donatus in payment of those 80m that Donatus was accustomed to receive from Henry V each year, by name of reward.

To the escheator.

It was found by inquisition held before William Barret, formerly one of the deputies of Ralph Standyssh', formerly escheator in the time of Henry IV, that one John fitz Rowe, who was lately seised as of fee of all lands [etc.] in Thomasetoun and 160 acres in Lagagh', killed one Margaret Betagh. On account of that felony he was outlawed, and he died thus outlawed; and for that reason the said land [etc.] was taken into the K.'s hand.

Upon this William Balff and Mary his wife―having been admitted to plead and show their right in chancery because of their petition displayed to Edward [Dantsey], bp Meath, deputy of Edmund [Mortimer], e. March, Lt, and the endorsement of the same―say that one Matthew fitz Rowe was seised as of fee of 1 messuage and 80 acres of land in Lagagh' and gave it to the said William and Mary to have to them and the heirs of their bodies; and they were so seised until they were removed by colour of the said inquisition.

The messuage and 80 acres are and were parcels of the said 160 acres in Lagagh'.

When the premises had been aired in chancery, it was decided that the reason for taking the messuage and lands is naught in law, and so the K.'s hand should be removed. ORDER to remove the [K.'s] hand.

To John Founteyns esq., escheator of Ire.

It was found by inquisition that one Henry Barfote was lately seised as of fee of 1 messuage and 20 acres of land in Roriestoun; and of 3s rent service issuing from Irishtoun; 14s rent service issuing from Garyestoun; 13s 4d rent service issuing from Ewelestoun; 6s 8d rent service issuing from Scurlagestoun, all of which are held of the K. in chief, as of the manor of Kenll' [Kells], by knight service, and are parcels of that manor. And, thus seised, [Henry] enfeoffed one William Dillon chaplain in fee simple without licence, who re-enfeoffed [Henry] in tail male [de feodo talliato masc'] without licence; and for that reason the said messuage [etc.] were seized [etc.].

Upon this William Balff says before the K. in chancery that he was seised as of fee of the said messuage [etc.] until he was removed by colour of that inquisition; and that the said inquisition was not indented nor was it returned into chancery correctly according to the form of the statute. On account of these informalities it was decided in chancery that the said inquisition should be nullified. ORDER to remove the K.'s hand.

To [John Founteyns esq.], escheator of Ire.

It was found by an inquisition taken in the time of Henry V before Walter Whittey, formerly deputy of Thomas Talbot kt, former escheator, that one Henry Latymer, who was seised as of fee of 1 messuage and 80 acres of land in Remundcodestoun, gave the same in fee to one David Wadyng, who was then sheriff of co. Wexford, contrary to the statutes and ordinances against the K.'s officers.

And now Walter Ocborne―having been admitted to plead and show his right before the K. in chancery because of his petition displayed to Richard [Talbot], abp Dublin, C. of Ire.―says that he was seised as of fee of the said messuage [etc.] until he was removed by colour of that inquisition; and that the said Walter Whittey was not deputy of the former escheator at the time of the taking of that inquisition. And so it was decided in chancery that the K.'s hand should be removed. ORDER to remove the [K.'s] hand.

On 9 June [1424] 2 Hen. VI James [Butler], e. Ormond, deputy of the Lt of Ire., in Thomas Court declared to the council that McMaghone, McGenous, Nell Garrowe Odonyll', and other Irish enemies of the K. of the parts of Ulster, had assembled and confederated with a multitude of Irish, Scots and other rebels to burn, destroy and conquer the land unless they be resisted, which he declared he was unable to do without a great number of men-at-arms and archers, and especially without the aid of William Burgh kt and William Burgh his brother. Therefore the earl humbly pleaded to council that for their past services performed in the K.'s wars, and so that they might more gladly aid the said deputy in his present necessity [ut ipsi animum habeant hilariorem dictum dep' in presenti necessitate auxiliari], a suitable reward might be given to them. On deliberation it was agreed that that William Burgh kt should have £40 and William Burgh his brother should have 20m from the issues both of the great new custom and the small custom in the ports of the towns of Galway and Slygagh [Sligo].

To John Founteyns esq., escheator of Ire.

The K. has learned by inquisition taken in the time of Henry V before Henry Stanyhurst, formerly deputy of John Charneles, former escheator, that Robert Derpatryk held of the K. in chief in tail male on the day he died 1 messuage and 2 carucates of land in Stallorgan by knight service; and that John Cruys kt gave the said messuage [etc.] to John Derpatryk and Mary his wife, and the heirs male begotten of their bodies. And John Derpatryk and Mary had male issue, legitimately begotten between them, viz. the said Robert [dcd] and Stephen his brother, now alive and of full age, and that Stephen is Robert's heir because of the said gift; and that Robert died without heirs male of his body. ORDER to cause those lands and tenements to be delivered to Stephen.

To John Founteyns esq., escheator of Ire.

It was found by inquisition taken in the time of Henry V before Henry Stanyhurst that one Robert Cruce of Stahalmok―who was lately seised as of the right of his wife of 1 messuage and 80 acres of land in Stahalmok, co. Meath―was outlawed of felony in the time of Henry IV, and for that reason the said messuage [etc.] were seized into the K.'s hand.

Upon this John Bermingham―having been admitted to show his right in chancery upon the premises, because of his petition displayed in chancery―says that he was seised as of fee of the said messuage [etc.] until he was removed by colour of the said inquisition; and that there is insufficient substance contained in that inquisition for the seizure of the said messuage [etc.]; and so it seemed to the court. ORDER to remove the [K.'s] hand.
