28 Feb. 1372
Dublin
To the prior of the hospital of St John of Jerusalem in Ire., and John Creeff.

By inspection of a certain writ of Eng. issued from the chancery of Eng. under the g.s. of Eng. to the Jcr, C. and T. of Ire. and remaining in the chancery of Ire., it appears that on 15 Feb. [1369] 43 Edw. III the K. ordered them that if John Wogan, then living, were to come to Ire. at Easter [1369] or before to defend his lands and tenements according to the ordinance [concerning absentees], then the Jcr, C. and T. of Ire. should cause restitution of his lands and tenements in the said land, together with the issues of the same, seized by them or other ministers of the K. at the time when John was in Wales defending his lands there by licence of Lionel, duke of Clarence, then Lt of Ire.; to be held by John just as he held them before that seizure.1

As it is agreed that John came to Ire. a fortnight before Easter and remained from that time until his death in defence of his lands, and not wishing that any injury should happen to John or his executors, ORDER to deliver the said lands to John's executors; and on no account are they to interfere concerning those lands henceforth.2

The Latin text of the writ is given in Foedera [R], iii, pt 2, p. 859. For convenience, the text of the calendared version from the English close roll (CCR 1369–74, p. 5) is reproduced here:

'Order, upon petition made on behalf of John Wogan, if at Easter next or sooner he shall come to Ireland there to abide upon the defence of the country and of his lands according to the ordinance last made, and if his said lands are in the K.'s hand because of the said ordinance and for no other cause, to cause him without delay to have restitution and livery thereof with the issues thereof taken in the mean time by them or other the K.'s ministers, to hold as before they were taken into the K.'s hand; as the said petition shews that the said John abode continually upon his lands in Ireland until the coming of Lionel duke of Clarence the K.'s son and Lt in Ireland, that with his men at his own cost he stood with the said duke no small time upon the war against the K.'s enemies, taking nothing of the K., until news came that he would lose his lands in Wales unless he should speedily remove thither, when with the said duke's licence he departed for the recovery and defence of his said lands, came to Wales, and there abode as need was at the command of his superiors as well for defence of Wales as of his said lands, and that while so he was in Wales his lands in Ireland were long ago by the justiciary, chancellor and T. and other the K.'s ministers taken into the K.'s hand for that he was not in Ireland in person upon the defence thereof, although he left there men sufficient for their defence, and the perils in Wales being ended hastened upon his passage to Ireland, but three times in crossing the sea thither was by storm driven back to land in Wales, praying for restitution thereof, as he is now ready to cross over in person to Ireland and there abide with men-at-arms and archers according to his estate for defence of Ireland and of his lands there against the K.'s enemies according to the ordinance new made by the K. and council. By K. and C.'

To the archbishop of Armagh and the bishop of Meath, and their vicars general, officials and commissioners.

Lately in the K.'s court before Lionel, e. Ulster, formerly Lt of Ire., by the K.'s writ, the K. recovered the presentation of the archdeaconry of Meath, vacant and in the K.'s gift because of the vacancey of the bishopric of Meath, which is in the K.'s hand, against Nicholas [Allen], late bishop of Meath, and Matthew Crompe clk, according to the record and process exemplified under the seal used in Ire. And on 4 Nov. [1361] 35 Edw. III the K. gave and granted that archdeaconry, with its rights and appurtenances, to Matthew Crompe by his letters patent. Matthew was installed in that archdeaconry with all rights [etc.]. ORDER, therefore, to admit Matthew to the archdeaconry and to permit him to have and receive that which archdeacons of that place have been accustomed to be paid, lest the K.'s right to that archdeaconry in the person of Matthew be lost.1

To the sovereign and bailiffs of the town of New Ross, and Roger Wylton and John Codde of New Ross, who were specially appointed by the K. as collectors both of those 6d from each pound granted in the K.'s parliament held at Kilkenny on the morrow of Epiphany 44 Edw. III [7 Jan. 1371], and portions of another £176 granted in another parliament held at Cashel in the octaves of Trinity then next following [8 June 1371] to be levied from the community of co. Wexford, especially concerning the town of Ross.

It has been shown to the K. on behalf of Walter Frampton of Bristol that although Walter in no way resides within the K.'s land of Ire., nor does he possess any servants continually overseeing his merchandise there nor does he have dwellings in the same land, on account of which he ought to be compelled by right to contribute to any subsidy granted for whatever reason by the community of the same land, nevertheless the sovereign and bailiffs of the town of New Ross, and Roger Wylton and John Codde of New Ross, collectors of the said moneys, have unjustly compelled Walter to contribute within the said town of New Ross, to Walter's considerable damage and harm, as the K. learns. And because the K. is sufficiently informed that Walter remains continually outside the K.'s land of Ire., and does not have servants, merchandise or dwellings there, ORDER to cause to be superseded any demands upon Walter to contribute to the said subsidy; and if Walter or his men or servants bring merchandise to that port, the sovereign [etc.] are to restore and supersede all things in the said form.

Stephen [Valle], bp Meath, has shown by petition to the Lt and council that the temporalities of the bishopric of Meath, were committed to him while he was bishop of Limerick, viz. by letters patent dated 26 May [++++] 43 Edw. III, by paying the extent at the Ex. at Michaelmas and Easter; but that payments of some of the rents arising from those temporalities, which ought to have been paid at All Saints and Christmas, before [the day when] he had produced his papal bull of translation to the bishopric of Meath to the Lt, were not made because, by order of the Lt, the bishop had been occupied in Munster in subduing the war there. ORDER to cause the bishop to be quit.

To the T. and chamberlains of the Ex.

Lately by the advice of William Windsor and others of the K.'s council, Stephen [Valle], bp Meath, proceeded by their order to various parts of Munster with many men-at-arms, hobelars, archers and foot, both in the company of the Lt and by himself, and he laboured there to the great peril of his life in fighting and in restoring to the K.'s peace Obreen of Thomond, McConmarre, Omaghirs, Odures, Omolryans,1 Burkeyns,2 Cauntons, and various others the K.'s enemies and rebels there. In recompense for his labours and expenses he was granted £320 by name of reward for the premises. And it appears from the transcripts of his accounts―which were passed before Walter Eure, clerk of the wages, and Geoffrey Rys, his controller―that the bishop has been satisfied for £262 5s 8d; and the sum of £57 9s 6d remains from those £320. ORDER to pay the bishop those £57 9s 6d.

To the barons of the Ex. of Dublin.

In response to a writ of certiorari as to the reason for taking into the K.'s hand 1 messuage and [6 acres]1 of land in Pollardeston belonging to John s. of Philip s. of Meiler Walsh, which used to belong to John Traharn', the escheator returned that they were taken into the K.'s hand, but afterwards it was found by inquisition that they were not held of the K. but rather of the baron of Obargy by suit of court twice yearly. Thomas Markanston―to whom, by letters dated 8 March […], the K. had committed custody of the lands that belonged to Henry Traharn' and John Traharn' in Pollardeston―returned the K.'s letters in chancery to be cancelled. Whereupon, by other letters patent dated 1 May [1372] last, the K. committed custody of lands in Kylclogh to Thomas Traharn', to have rendering the extent. And the K. does not wish any injury to be done to the same [John] son of Philip Meiler because of the commission to him, by suggestion of that Thomas, alleging in his petition to the K.'s council that those lands [etc.] in Pollardeston were taken into he K.'s hand although they were not, as is said. ORDER to permit him [John] to retain his said tenements and to receive the rents and issues of the same.

Cork
To Roger Hakensowe, escheator of Ire.

On 20 July [1372] last the K. ordered the escheator that―having taken sufficient [security] from William [s. of David Barry, as in §114] for the payment of his reasonable relief for the purparty of Margaret, his wife, first-born of four sisters and co-heirs of Milo Courcy, of the manor of Rynroun, co. Cork―he was to grant William and Margaret seisin of that purparty.
Joan Cantilupe and Margaret Carew, daughters and co-heirs of Katherine [the third sister of Milo Courcy], have pleaded that Katherine's purparty should be divided into two equal portions. Because Joan has now similarly found sufficient security, viz. William s. of David Barry kt and John […] Cork, who have become pledges and mainpernors of that Joan for [the payment of a] reasonable relief, ORDER to cause Joan to have full seisin of her purparty.

The original enrolment was damaged by 1828 and some readings are supplied in RCH within square brackets. The Latin calendar in RCH is problematic, as it seems to suggest that Maurice fitz Thomas was appointed as keeper by letters patent on 22 March 1372. It is clear, however, that Maurice was appointed before Windsor's departure. For a memorandum that supplies more detail, see above §57.

To Gerald fitz Maurice, e. Desmond.

The K. has been informed that Obreen of Thomond, chieftain of his lineage, has gathered to himself a great multitude of Irish enemies and rebels and threatens to make war anew on the K.'s faithful lieges in co. Limerick. Wishing that the said evil be resisted, ORDER to the earl, upon the allegiance he owes the K. and on pain of forfeiture, without excuse, to proceed with all possible haste to his lordship in the said county with men-at-arms, hobelars and archers, horse and foot, remaining there in person for the safety and defence of those parts within co. Limerick where it seems most expedient so that the said enemy might refrain from that evil. And Maurice s. of Thomas, e. Kildare, keeper of Ire., and the bishop of Meath, T. of Ire., will proceed with all possible speed from Leinster to the earl's aid with the retinue of William Windsor, Lt, to fight together the said Obreen.

[10 Apr. 1372]

MEMORANDUM that on 10 April [1372], in the church of Holy Trinity, Dublin, [two] writs of the K., sealed with the K.'s g.s. of Eng., were read out by Thomas Thelwall clk, having first been displayed by Thomas Bathe, clerk in [… …], [in the presence of] the following persons, viz.:2

[Maurice s. of Thomas, the earl]1 of Kildare;
Stephen [Valle], bp Meath, T.;
William Tany, prior of the hospital [of St John of Jerusalem in Ire., …];
[…] Scorlok, abbot of the house of St Thomas the Martyr near Dublin;
William Skipwyth, chief […];
[…] chief justice of the bench of Ire.;
and Robert Holywood, chief baron of the Ex.;
[…], K.'s serjeant of law.

[1] By one of the writs, the K. ordered to John Botheby not to cause any charters or other letters of pardon, nor of remission of felonies or trespasses whatsoever, or any writs of grace or of payment or others― except for writs which are of course [de cursu] at that time according to the laws and customs of Ire.―to be sealed by pretext of any mandate under the g.s. of the said land addressed to him [by William] Windsor, Lt in Ire., until he receives other orders under the g.s. of Eng.

Westminster, 6 March [1372].3

[2] By the other writ, the K. enjoined the T., barons and chamberlains of the Ex., as strictly as he could, not to cause any sums or assignments to be made without the K.'s special order under the g.s. of Eng.

Westminster, 4 March [1372].4

But, at the time those writs were received, Obreen, McKonnar, Richard Og of [… … …] of Connacht, and almost all the Irish of Munster, Connacht and Leinster, as well as many English, enemies and rebels, had arisen in war after the withdrawal of William Windsor, Lt of Ire., and were confederated in order to make a universal conquest by their force throughout Ire. before the same Lt returned from Eng.; and that it was not the K.'s intention, nor that of his council in Eng., by the said writ addressed to the same T. [etc.], to replace writs in cases of necessity concerning the defence and salvation of the said land, just as the same Thomas Bathe affirmed before the said persons.

3 This is a translation of the Latin calendar in RCH; the calendared version of this writ from the English close roll (CCR 1369–74, p. 365) is reproduced here for convenience:

'To John de Botheby the K.'s clerk, C. of Ire. Strict order, for particular causes, not to cause any charters, letters of pardon or remission of felonies or trespasses whatsoever, writs of favour or concerning payments to be made or otherwise to be sealed under the g.s. of Ire., which is in his keeping, by virtue of any command or warrant of William de Wyndesore the K.'s Lt in Ireland to the chancellor addressed or made, until he shall have further order under the great seal of Eng., save only writs which are of course according to the law and custom of Ire.'

4 Cf. the corresponding entry on the English close roll (CCR 1369–74, p. 365):

'To the T. and the barons and chamberlains of the Ex. of Ire. Strict order, for particular causes laid before the K. and council, not to make any payments of any sums of money for this instant term of Easter or thenceforward without the K.'s special command to them addressed under the great seal of Eng., nor to make assignment for payment of any moneys to any person by tallies or otherwise.'
