Drogheda
To the T. and barons of the Ex.

In the K.'s parliament lately held at Westminster,1 it was ordained that that all manner of men, of whatsoever estate or condition they be, having lands, rents, benefices, offices and other possessions whatsoever in Ire., shall take themselves to the said land of Ire. between now and the Nativity of St John next [24 June 1380], and henceforth shall reside and dwell there, to aid and strengthen the said faithful lieges in guarding and defending the said land against the said Irish rebels: and all those who have castles and fortresses in the same land shall cause them to be repaired and maintained in a fitting condition, and they shall install in them a good and sure garrison for the safekeeping of the same castles and fortresses, on pain of the appended penalty. And if any of those who have lands, offices, rent, benefices or other possessions in the said lands be absent from the said land on reasonable grounds after the said feast, then they shall be obliged to send and place other fencible men there in their place to defend the same land, as needs be; having regard to the size and value of the same lands, rents, offices and other possessions. And if they do not do that, let two thirds of the profits from their said lands, rents, offices and possessions be levied and spent upon the guarding and defence of the same land, by the advice of the justices and governors of the same land then in office.

ORDER to the T. and barons of the Ex. to search the rolls, writs and memoranda of the Ex. in their custody concerning the lands, rents, offices, benefices [etc.] of those who were absentees in the time of Edward III and in that K.'s hand because of the ordinance made by him at Guildford; they are also to inquire, by the oaths of good and lawful men, concerning lands [etc.] that were not seized belonging to those who did not come to Ire. by the said feast nor send men there in their places according to the said ordinance, and to return their inquisitions concerning this, so that two thirds or one third of the said profits might be levied for the keeping of the said lands, in accordance to the said ordinance.2

Footnotes: 

{1} The date of this item is problematic. Richard II's regnal year began on 22 June, which would make the date of this writ 19 June [1381] 4 Ric. II. This is not, however, compatible with the substance of a later writ (below, §10), dated 6 Oct. 1380, which refers to this item. It seems likely, therefore, that this writ properly belongs to 3 Ric. II and should be dated 19 June 1380.

ORDER to pay John More, clerk of the works, £20 for speedy and suitable repairs to the said castle.

Although in the last parliament held at Westminster it was ordered that all men having lands [etc.] in Ire. should be there before St John the Baptist following [24 June 1380], Henry Ferrers kt [chivaler] has been ordered to go to France together with other nobles and others with a certain number of men-at-arms and archers to recover the K.'s rights there, and Ralph Lyngeyn kt, his attorney, has found sufficient surety to pay the K. one third of the value of all the lands [etc.] which he has in Ire. for the time of his absence. ORDER to deliver the lands to him.

John Freignes of Meath has shown by his petition displayed before the K.'s Lt in Ire. and the prelates, magnates and commons of that land present in parliament at Dublin on Saturday, the Morrow of All Souls last [3 Nov. 1380], that he and the commons of the liberty of Meath were heavily amerced in 100m because John did not come to parliament summoned and held on the next Monday after Ash Wednesday 1 Ric. II [3 March 1378], as he had been elected by the common assent of the commons of that liberty before the then seneschal of the liberty, by virtue of the K.'s writ addressed to the seneschal concerning this and returned at the said parliament together with John's name. The commons of the liberty of Meath intend to place that amercement entirely upon John, supposing that he should pay it for the said reason and that they ought by right to be totally exonerated. John cannot pay that sum to the K. without the final destruction of his estate. He seeks that he be amerced in a reasonable sum that he can pay without the depression of his estate. Because it appeared to the prelates, magnates and commons that the amercement was too heavy, at the request of the same prelates [etc.] and by advice of the Lt and others of the K.'s council, the K. has of his special grace caused the amercement to be reduced to 100s, to be levied from the said John and community. ORDER to reduce the amercement to 100s.

Dublin
To the mayor and bailiffs of of the K.'s city of Waterford.

The sovereigns and commonalties of the towns of Kilkenny and Callan have shown to the K. that those towns are parcels of the lordship of the earl of Gloucester; and all merchants and others staying and residing within the said lordship ought to be quit, and are quit within the city of London and elsewhere within Eng. and Ire., from paying any customs or murage on merchandise bought and sold. They and their predecessors enjoyed these liberties from the time of the foundation of the said towns, as they say. Yet merchants coming with their merchandise to the city of Waterford are often distrained unjustly for their merchandise sold in the said city, and the merchandise bought there, for the payment of those customs and murage, to their great damage and contrary to the effect and force of their said liberties, as they assert. Considering the premises, they seek remedy. ORDER not to trouble them, or any others, contrary to the tenor of the said liberties.

To John fitz Rery, escheator of Ire.

William Boltham and Joan his wife, and Robert Burnell and Matilda his wife have petitioned showing that a certain John Oweyn was seised in his demesne as of fee of 1 messuage, 1 mill, 1 dovecot, 2 carucates of land, 12 acres of meadow, 20 acres of pasture and 20 acres of wood in Blaunchardestoun, which he held of Robert Tyrell kt as of his manor of Castleknock, by homage and fealty and the service of 40s p.a. and 40s royal service when scutage runs. Afterwards, Robert died seised of the said service and after his death the said manor descended to Joan and Matilda as his sisters and heirs, who were seised of it. Afterwards, John Oweyn alienated the premises in Blaunchardestoun in fee and then received back an estate to himself and Alice his wife, with remainder to his heirs. John and Alice both died leaving as heir a minor, and William and Robert and their wives entered the premises claiming custody thereof and continued in possession until the escheator, without due process of law, took them into the K.'s hand. They sought relief and the K. ordered the escheator to certify in chancery the cause of taking the same into his hand; the escheator returned that it was found by inquisition that on the eve of St Laurence 45 Edw. III, at which time the castle and lordship of Castleknock were in the K.'s hand by reason of death of Robert Tyrell and minority of his heir, John Oweyn being at point of death gave Blanchardestoun, then held of the said manor by knight service, together with his other lands in Rolaght, Balydenan and Colcot to Cecilia Howth and her heirs on condition that she should enfeoff her daughter, Alice, during her lifetime, and if she should die before his son and heir John should have attained the age of 21 years, that Cecilia should keep the same in her hands and deliver them to him when he should attain his majority. It was found that the premises were given by collusion to exclude the K. from the custody thereof; that Rolagh was held of the K. in chief by the annual service of one pound of pepper; that Balydenan was held of the heir of Roger Oweyn as of the manor of Blondeleiton by a pair of spurs and knight service, then in the K.'s hand; and that Colcot was held of the K. in chief by the annual service of 2s, as of the manor of Saggart. William and Robert and their wives appeared in chancery and pleaded that the said cause was insufficient, and they therefore prayed to have the possession restored to them with the issues. ORDER to remove the K.'s hand.1

To John fitz Rery, escheator.

The K. wished to be informed concerning the reason for taking into his hand 2 weirs at le Oldebrygge, 1 weir at Staghlyin and 1 weir at Knothe on the water of Boyn, co. Meath, belonging to the abbot of the Blessed Mary of Mellifont. The escheator returned into chancery that the K. had and by right ought to have in the stream of the said water a royal road called watershard, 24 feet wide so that boats and floats laden with goods might have a free passage from Drogheda to the bridge of Trim, but that the abbot had built and raised around his weirs for the taking of salmon so as to obstruct the said passage so that boats could not now pass as before as they still ought to do. The abbot appearing in person in chancery pleaded that no man should be ejected from his freehold until he was duly brought to give his answer and adjudged by law; and that the weirs were his freehold; and he therefore pleaded that the K. should remove his hand and restore the same to him. ORDER to remove the K.'s hand from the said weirs.

To the T. and chamberlains of the Ex.

Thomas Bathe, baron of the Ex., and John Brettan, chief remembrancer of the Ex., have pleaded that they were commissioned by letters patent to extend all lands, tenements and possessions, benefices, offices and all profits of any absentees from Ire. holding lands, tenements [etc.] in cos. Dublin, Kildare, Meath and Louth, both inside and outside liberties, disposing and ordering them for the K.'s profit according to the force and vigour of a certain ordinance made against persons being absent from Ire. in the last parliament at Westminster. In the execution of their duties, they were occupied on one occasion for 33 days, and on another for 18 days, and they sustained great expense and labour. Wishing to provide Thomas and John with sufficient reward for the premises and being inclined towards their plea, the K. has granted Thomas £6 and John £4. ORDER to pay them that sum.

To John fitz Rery, escheator of Ire., and to the sheriff of the crosslands of Ulster.

The K. wished to be informed concerning the taking into the hand of Edward III by James de la Hyde kt, then escheator of Ire., of the manor of Kilkenan, which belonged to William Parketour,1 vicar of the church of Antrim. He ordered Robert Lughteburgh, formerly escheator, to inform him concerning the same in the chancery of Ire. Robert returned that it was found by inquisition that the said William held the said manor to himself and his heirs of William [Mercier], bp Connor, by an annual rent of 100 crannocks of oat flour [crannocorum farine avenatice] and a pound of wax to the church of St Colman of the church of Kilroth, and suit at the court of the bishop. On account of his poverty, William could not pay the bishop the said oatmeal and he agreed that the bishop should hold the manor at that rent at the said William's will, and he [the bishop] held it accordingly for three years. Later, perceiving that it would be more advantageous to have the rent than the manor, he surrendered it to William to hold to him and his heirs as aforesaid. William received the same from the bishop, entered it and held it until removed from it when it was taken into the K.'s hand, whereupon he pleaded to the K. to restore the manor to him as he was removed without reasonable cause and due process of law, together with the issues from the time it was taken from him. ORDER to restore the manor together with the issues to William.

To the T. and barons of the Ex.

William Carew has shown by petition that Edward III, by his letters patent of Eng., granted to Nicholas and Thomas Carew, and the heirs of the said Thomas, all lands and tenements in Balymaclethan, co. Meath; Bertoun, co. Kildare; and Clementagh, co. Kilkenny, which had come into the K.'s hand by virtue of a certain ordinance made at Guildford, and that now two thirds of the issues were seized into the K.'s hand on account of the absence from Ire. of Nicholas and Thomas contrary to the ordinance made in the K.'s parliament at Westminster. William pleaded to the K. that he was attorney of the said Nicholas and Thomas and was present in Ire., prepared to undertake and sustain all charges imposed upon them by reason of their said lands; he therefore asked that he should receive the issues of those lands for his own use according to a gift and grant thereof made to him by Nicholas and Thomas, and he pleaded that the K. should order restoration of the issues. In consideration of the premises and because William has produced pledges (viz. David Wogan of Kildare and Nicholas Forster of Skrene) in chancery to answer in the Ex. for whatever should be due to the K., ORDER to remove the K.'s hand.

Trim
To the T. and barons of the Ex.

Lately, at the prosecution of Robert [Wikeford], abp Dublin, the K. wished to be informed concerning the reason for taking into the K.'s hand the manor of Swords, a parcel of the temporalities of the archbishop, by Nicholas Dagworth, appointed by letters patent to inquire into forfeitures, rights and other profits belonging to the K. in Ire. The K. ordered Nicholas to inform him of the cause in the chancery of Eng., who returned that he had found by inquisition a just reason and sufficient cause for doing so, as it appeared to him, which he did not now recollect, and before his return from Ire. caused the said inquisition to be delivered into the treasury there. After which, the K., wishing to be informed in his chancery of Eng. of the tenor of this inquisition, ordered the T. and chamberlains of Ire. to certify the same under the seal of the Ex.

This having been done accordingly, and the K. having called before him in the court of chancery in Eng. both his justices and his serjeants upon the archbishop's petition endorsed by the K.'s council,1 the archbishop came in chancery, where it was presented by the jury of the inquisition that John Comyn, late archbishop of Dublin, wished to build a castle at his manor of Castlekevin on the frontier of the marches in order to provide for the relief and defence of the common people in certain parts of Leinster, cos. Kildare and Dublin, and to prevent the conquest of the same by the Irish; and he represented his intention and his insufficiency to execute the same by petition delivered to Henry III and his council at Pentecost 1216, and sought from the K. the manor of Swords with all the liberties and free customs pertaining to it, which belonged to the crown, to help him build and maintain the said castle against the power of the said enemies. The K., wishing to provide sufficient strengh in the marches, had therefore granted him the manor to hold to the archbishop and his church for as long as he maintained the said castle against the K.'s enemies; and if the castle were not built or maintained, the manor was to revert to the crown forever. And Archbishop Robert did not maintain the castle properly and it was pulled down and wasted, contrary to the intent of the grant.

The archbishop in answer protested that he knew of no such gift or grant, but that Thomas Mynot his precedessor, when he became archbishop after the death of John St Paul, on 21 Sept. 1363, had restoration of all the temporalities of his see in the K.'s hand and they were similarly restored to the present archbishop when he succeeded on Mynot's death, as appears in the rolls of chancery. During all that time the manor of Swords was part of the temporalities of the see, and the said John, Thomas and others of their predecessors were seised of the manor in right of their churches of the Holy Trinity and St Patrick, Dublin. Robert claimed that the manor was seized unduly and he sought restoration, together with the issues of that manor received in the meantime. On this, Michael Skyllyng, the K.'s attorney, before the C. and justices said that, by virtue of his letters patent, Nicholas Dagworth had power to inquire into all lands, tenements, rents, profits, farmers, constables, bailiffs and offiers, wardships, escheats, reliefs and all other rights and profits in any manner and by whomsoever detained or concealed from the crown, and where he found any deficiency to seize them into the K.'s hand by inquisition; and therefore that the archbishop ought not to be restored.

Notwithstanding the allegation on the K.'s part, and the examination of his serjeants, it appeared to the court that the manor was not taken into the K.'s hand according to law and that therefore the K.'s hand should be removed and the manor restored to the archbishop, together with the issues from the time it was taken into the K.'s hand.

Accordingly, by writ of Eng. dated 12 June [1380] last, the K. ordered the earl of March to remove the K.'s hand from the manor and restore it to the archbishop, and by another writ under the g.s. of Ire. ordered John Griffyn and John Swindon, formerly farmers of the manor to pay over the issues to the archbishop, which he afterwards acknowledged in chancery to have received. ORDER to cause the archbishop and the farmers of that manor to be exonerated.

To the provost of the town of New Ross.

The sovereign and community of the town of New Ross have shown that that town is situated in the marches near the Irish enemies and rebels, and a great part of the walls and towers have fallen to the ground and the country for four miles on all sides is wasted and destroyed by the Irish, so that no one dares to go to the town unless with a great force or by water. And Edward III, on representations made to him in Eng. on behalf of the mayor and community of Waterford, had prohibited any ship entering the port of New Ross from proceeding to that town, and ordered that they should go to Waterford with their cargoes, so that for many years no one dared to go to the town with their ships and merchandise until it was adjudged in court, at the great expenses of the sovereign and community, that all ships entering the port might go either to New Ross or to Waterford, at the will of the masters, mariners or owners. And as they were so impoverished that they could not support their estate or repair the town without the K.'s aid , the K. granted them 100s out of the fee-farm of the town, then in his hands because of the absence of Margaret Marshal, lady of the town, on the Nativity of St John the Baptist last [24 June 1380], contrary to the ordinances passed at Westminster by which two thirds of the lands of absentees were to be forfeit. ORDER to pay this sum to the sovereign and community.

To the T. and barons of the Ex.

On 24 Jan. [1374], as Philip, brother and heir of John son and heir of John Darcy [second lord] of Knayth, dcd, had proved his age, Edward III restored all the lands [etc.] of his inheritance in Eng. to him, Philip having become the heir after the death of John, son and heir of the said John, who died as the K.'s ward;1 and by writ of Eng. dated 31 Jan. [1374],2 the governor and C. of Ire. were ordered to deliver to him all his father's lands in Ire., and by another writ dated 6 Sept. 1374, William Ilger, escheator, was ordered to take an inquisition post mortem concerning John's estate and return the findings in chancery. This was done, and it was found that he was seised of the manors of Louth, Asshe and Castelrynge, co. Louth; Dunmore, co. Meath; and Gareyston and Corcagh, co. Dublin. ORDER to cause Philip to be exonerated from paying the rent reserved on this by a demise from the said John to Edmund Lorent for life, which came into the K.'s hand by the death of John and the minority of his heir.3

Nesta, widow of Robert Holywood, has petitioned to the K. and council that Walter Fouler, vicar of Balrothery, and Henry, vicar of Holywood, were seised of the manor of Ballycarryk in fee, and gave the same to Nesta for life with remainder to Christopher Holywood, s. of the said Robert and Nesta, and his heirs. Nesta was seised until Henry Michell and Stephen Bray, commissioners, took the lands [into the K.'s hand] because of an inquisition taken before them that found that Robert was seised in fee. On this account, it was ordered that Robert's heir and the farmers and serjeants should appear before the Lt to have justice done, and process being taken, it appeared as stated by Nesta. ORDER to remove the K.'s hand from that manor.

And on 6 Dec. [1379] 2 Ric. II, the present K. confirmed the letters of Edward III, wishing that Reginald should have the custody of the said manor to hold during pleasure and should take the said 12d in the above form, so that if the manor be taken out of Reginald's hand, then he should have and receive the said 12d for his wages out of the farm or issues of the said manor by the keeper of the said manor, whoever they may be at the time, for Reginald's lifetime or until the K. should order otherwise. Reginald now petitions that the manor is taken out of his custody and is in the K.'s hand. ORDER to pay him the said 12d a day from the time the manor was taken into the K.'s hand.

Robert le Hore, K.'s attorney in the Ex. and common bench at Carlow, has shown the K. that in Lent [1380] last he was appointed by Alexander [Balscot], bp Ossory, T. of Ire., to go to cos. Cork and Limerick in the company of William Karlell clk, then commissioned to levy the K.'s debts in those counties. Robert greatly informed William concerning this, to the K.'s profit, so that, by Robert's information, the sum of £100 accrued to the K.'s profit in those counties, as he says. Whereupon Robert pleaded to the K. by his petition displayed in the K.'s parliament last held at Castledermot before John Bromiche, then Jcr, and the K.'s council, for reward for labours and expenses; and although the K. granted him 5m to have of his gift as a reward for those reasons, satisfaction of those 5m has still not been made to him, as he says. He seeks payment. On examination of the file of petitions from that parliament and by inspection of Robert's petition and its endorsement which were residing in the said file, it appeared to the K. that 5m were granted to Robert in recompense for his said expenses and labours. Wishing that he be satisfied of those 5m, ORDER to pay him that sum.
