Pardon also for this, that when John York killed the said Robert and fled on account of that felony to the church of St David of Naas, they dragged him from the said church by force and arms and led him to the house of Hugh Flasagrely of Osberneston against the will of the community of the town of Naas, and they permitted him to go away.

To the sheriff of Dublin, keepers of the peace and the marches and other bailiffs, serjeants, subserjeants, and others of the marches, and faithful people.

Reginald Bernevalle was in the K.'s service in the company of Stephen [Valle], bp Meath, in various parts of Ire., as a result of which he could not come to musters, parliaments, hues and cries within co. Dublin, nor could he reside in the marches of that county with other tenants for its salvation and defence, nor do other things ordered by reason of his tenancy within the county. Wishing, therefore, that Reginald is not troubled in any way by reason of his absence for the time he was with the said bishop, the K. has exonerated and acquitted him of all these things. ORDER that, for as long as Reginald remains in the company of that bishop, they are not to amerce, impede or trouble him by reason of the premises.

To all sheriffs, keepers of the peace, bailiffs, serjeants, subserjeants, people of the marches, and other faithful people concerned.

In consideration of the great expenses, various costs and excessive burdens that Christopher, prior of the house of St John the Baptist outside the New Gate of Dublin, has incurred and ought to incur out of the lands he holds in pure and perpetual alms, both in co. Dublin and elsewhere, for the sustenance of various chaplains and divine clerks who celebrate divine services daily in the church of that house for the health of the K. and the souls of his progenitors, and the souls of all the faithful departed, as well as the sustenance of various paupers and infirm persons who lie continually in beds in the said house, and also on account of the poverty of his house and its possessions, the K. has granted that the prior may be quit and exonerated of coming to the marches of co. Dublin or those of other counties with his posse, to reside and defend his said lands there with men-at-arms [etc.], and of coming to parleys [parliamenta], musters, hues and cries in the said counties or the marches of the same [etc.]. ORDER not to compel the prior to come to the said marches, or parliaments [etc.], nor to trouble him concerning the above, during pleasure.1

Various foreign merchants frequenting the town of Galway with their merchandise decline to come to the K.'s city of Cork to pay their customs due to the K. there from merchandise because of the danger of sailing and the difficulty of the crossing by sea to the port of that city these days, and frequently they travel to various foreign parts without having paid the K.'s customs, to the K.'s grave prejudice. Therefore, wishing to provide for the K.'s advantage and also in relief of the burgesses and merchants of the said town of Galway, so that they and other merchants of Connacht might no longer suffer any damages or losses by shipwreck in going towards the city of Cork to pay their customs, as was customary before this time, the K. has thought fit to ordain by advice of his council in his land of Ire. that the K.'s staple of wool, hides and wool-fells, and any other merchandise whatever, due of old at the said town, shall be here for the term of three years next coming, and that the said burgesses and merchants of Galway and Connacht and others who come to the said town with any merchandise shall pay their customs there, and not at the K.'s said city [of Cork] for the said time, notwithstanding that the said staple ought to be at the said city and also at Dublin, Drogheda and Waterford and not elsewhere in the K.'s land of Ire. according to the ordinance made on this: not wishing that the said burgesses and merchants of the town of Galway and of Connacht or any of them, or their heirs, should be troubled by the K. or his heirs or any of his ministers. And after the end of the said three years, all customs shall be paid at the city of Cork and not at the town of Galway, unless the K. provides otherwise concerning this.

Thomas Mareward has petitioned showing that Richard Hegreve, late citizen of Dublin, acquired to himself for life [ad terminum vite diversarum personarum in securitate cuiusdam termini annorum] from Joan, daughter of Francis Feypo kt, all lands [etc.] which the said Joan had in Santry [le Sauntref], which are held of the K. in chief, and he died seised of them. The said Thomas [Mareward], who after Richard's death married his widow Cecilia, entered the said lands together with Cecilia, administratrix of the said Richard, supposing that Richard had held those lands for a term of years and not for life, and he received the issues from them, whereas the said lands ought to have pertained to the K., both because Richard acquired them without licence and also by escheat, because the said Richard was a bastard and died without an heir of his body. PARDON, for service and for 40s, to Richard [etc.]; and furthermore the K. has granted him the crop now growing on those lands.

Matthew s. of Henry and Richard Whittey, keepers of the peace in co. Wexford, and other faithful people of that county, petitioned in the parliament held at Kilkenny on the morrow of Trinity last [18 June 1375] before the governor and council that Philip Nyvell, who was living for a long time among the McMurghitz of Kensely, Irish enemies, perpetrated homicides, burnings, robberies and many other wrongs at various times on the lieges of the said county in the company of the said Irishmen. Having treated with the said keepers and other marchers of the said county, he has now restored himself to the peace at their request, and later by his aid, ordinance and spying 60 of the better men of the said Irish, with their horses, arms and their other goods worth £100 were killed and captured. By this, all that march, which was continually occupied by the said Irish before this time, is totally cleared of the said Irish for fear of the said Philip and because of the notoriety that he has in those parts. As various peers and magnates, both in the said county and in other neighbouring counties, testified in that parliament to the truth of the premises, PARDON to Philip, for good service, for all manner of seditions [etc.].

The sovereign, merchants and commons of the town of Youghal have shown the K. by their petition displayed to the governor and others of the K.'s council in the K.'s parliament held at Kilkenny on the morrow of Trinity last [18 June 1375] grievously complaining that although they have not hitherto loaded any merchandise customable at the K.'s staple in any ships within the port of the said town beyond the sum of one last of hides, yet the sovereign, merchants and commons of Youghal are daily compelled by the mayor and citizens of the K.'s city of Cork to come to that city with the said ships to pay there the K.'s customs due from the said hides, in danger both of the loss of the K.'s customs by the intemperance of the sea and also to no little damage of the sovereign, merchants and commons. They pleaded to the K. for aid in this part.

The K.—considering the damage and losses which could easily come about both to himself and to the sovereign, merchants and commons, and wishing to provide a fit remedy both for his comfort and that of the sovereign, merchants and commons—by advice of the governor and council in that parliament, has seen fit to ordain that all and singular customs due to the K. from wool, hides, wool-fells and other merchandise whatever loaded in the port of that town shall be faithfully paid in the port of Youghal to the collector of customs in the ports of the K.'s cities of Cork, Limerick and Waterford, notwithstanding that before this time all manner of merchandise loaded in that port [Youghal] used to be customable elsewhere than in the same port. The K. also wishes that his seal called coket should be had in that town, one part of that seal remaining in the custody of the said collector, the other part remaining in the custody of the controller of the K.'s customs in the port of the said town; and that letters of acquittance should be made from time to time testifying under that seal concerning payments and receipts of the said customs in that port. Not wishing that the sovereign, merchants and commons, or their heirs, should be impeded or troubled by the K. or his heirs or his ministers in future times in any way by reason of the premises.

'It is well known to them that, for a long time, the K has incurred great costs and expenses on the upkeep of wars in Ire. against his Irish enemies, for the salvation and defence of the same land and of his lieges and subjects there, without taking any revenues or profits from there, and neither the K. nor his subjects of Eng. can comfortably bear these expenses in the same way as they bore those formerly occasioned by the great wars with the K.'s adversaries of France and Spain [adversarios nostros Francie et Ispanie]. The K. therefore, with the advice of the prelates, magnates and other peers of his great council of Eng., sends to them Nicholas Dagworth to expound on the K.'s behalf his present business and other circumstances relating to it, to this end that they may ordain how each of them according to his means may bear a reasonable share of the said expenses.'1

INSPEXIMUS and CONFIRMATION of letters under the English g.s., dated at York, 12 May [1319] 12 Edw. [II]:

'In consideration of the good service of John Bermingham in Ire. in a conflict between himself, together with certain faithful people of those parts whose captain he was, and Edward Bruce, an enemy and rebel who had caused himself to be crowned K. of Ire. [qui se regem Hibernie fecerat coronari] to the K.'s disinheritance, and his accomplices, in which conflict the said Edward and many of his accomplices fell, as pleased the Lord, the K. had with the consent of the parliament at York granted to the said John £20 annual rent from the issues of co. Louth in Ire. under the name and honour of earl of Louth, and the K. preferred him to be earl of the said co. Louth to have, receive and hold the same to him and the heirs male of his body by the service of one quarter of a knight's fee forever; and if John should die without heirs male, then the said £20 of rent shall revert wholly to the K. and his heirs.1 Grant also to John and his heirs the manor in the said county which previously belonged to Ralph Pippard,2 to have to him and his heirs with knights' fees, advowsons of churches, liberties and free customs, and all other things pertaining to the same manor, fully and wholly, just as the said Ralph held it before, to hold of the K. for the service of one and one third knights' fees forever, except homages and services owed to the K.'s nepotes, which the K. has reserved to himself.'

To all justices, sheriffs, mayors, seneschals, sovereigns, provosts, keepers of the peace, bailiffs, serjeants, ministers and all other faithful people, both inside and outside liberties.

In a statute made at Kilkenny, 40 Edw. III [1366], it was decreed among other things that no Irish minstrel may stay among the English, nor may the English receive them, under threat of punishment. As it has been testified and recorded by various faithful persons before the K.'s beloved and faithful William Windsor, governor and keeper [of Ire.], and his council of the same land, in his parliament held at Kilkenny in the octaves of Michaelmas last [6 Oct. 1375], that Dowenaldus Omoghane, an Irish minstrel staying among the English [ministrallus hibernicus, inter Anglicos moram trahens], will stand continually at the K.'s faith, peace and obedience, and because of various evils committed by the Irish enemies and rebels he dare not return to the same Irish, the K. has granted to Dowenaldus, of his special grace, a licence to stay continually among the English, and that the English may receive and retain Dowenaldus in their homes as they please, the said statute notwithstanding, for as long as he bears himself well and faithfully towards the K., his peace and his faithful people. ORDER not to trouble Dowenaldus or those who receive him1

The abbot of the house of the Blessed Mary, Jerpoint, has shown the K., by his petition displayed to the governor and K.'s council in the K.'s land of Ire. in the K.'s common parliament lately held at Kilkenny in the octaves of Michaelmas last [6 Oct. 1375] that although that house is a daughter-house and subject to the abbot and house of Baltinglass, and the said abbot of Baltinglass is accustomed to come to parliaments held by the K. in Ire. and to answer there for himself, the abbot of Jerpoint and for other abbots and houses subject to him, yet the abbot of Jerpoint is often compelled by the K.'s writs and other orders to appear in all and singular parliaments summoned by the K. and held in the said land, to his not inconsiderable and grave damage, and the manifest impoverishment of his house. He has pleaded, in consideration of the premises, that he and his successors be not compelled to attend parliaments, convocations and councils summoned or held by the K. henceforth. Having regard for the poverty of the fruits, rents and income of the house of Jerpoint, and for the good and laudable service that the abbot of Jerpoint often performed in maintaining the K.'s peace, GRANT that he and his successors may be entirely excused and by these presents exonerated forever from coming to any parliaments, convocations or councils summoned or held by the K. in his said land, truly not wishing that the abbot should be troubled or oppressed in any way on account of his not coming to such parliaments, congregations or councils held by the K., his heirs or any of his ministers in the future.1

The K. has been informed, by the grave complaint of Henry Peverell, merchant of Bristol, that Maurice s. of John1 fitz Nicholas and certain other malefactors of his company and following, and of the kindred of the said John, seized goods to the value of 100m belonging to Henry near Tralee in Kerry by force and arms, and they carried them away to the great damage [etc.] of Henry and against the peace. It is further recited that in the statute made in parliament at Kilkenny, 40 Edw. III [1366], it is contained that each captain of English birth should punish all and singular of his kindred, lineage and following [de natione, parentela et sequela sua] who perpetrate any manner of evils against the K.’s faithful people, under threat of certain punishments and forfeitures contained therein. The K. has ordered John fitz Nicholas kt, under threat of the said punishments and forfeitures, to arrest his son [Maurice] and others of his kindred, lineage and following, wherever he may find them, and also all other persons of co. Kerry, both inside and outside liberties, whom he can show, if necessary by inquisition taken before him concerning this matter, or by other legal means, to have perpetrated that trespass against the said merchant, or who had or received the said goods. He is to hold them in his custody in the K.’s prison, there to remain until the goods have been fully restored, or their true value paid to the merchant, together with any damages sustained. He is to punish them for the said trespass, especially his son, in order that their punishment might deter others from offending. Also, for the benefit of the K.'s peace and the tranquillity of the faithful people there, the K. granted to the said John fitz Nicholas that he may arrest any of his kindred, lineage and following, and any other malefactors of the crosslands of Kerry, who perpetrate burnings, depredations, robberies, felonies [etc.] on any of the K.’s faithful people there, at the K.’s suit or at the complaint of others, and to commit them to prison, there to remain until them until they have made satisfaction for due damages, and to castigate and punish them in whatever manner seems to him best for the restoration of the K.’s peace, such that the castigation and punishment of men should not be to the K.’s prejudice or that of his faithful people; not wishing that he be troubled by the K. or his heirs or ministers by reason of the above, so long as the punishments are not to the K.'s prejudice or that of his people. ORDER to all concerned to be intendant to John fitz Nicholas concerning the execution of the above mandate.1
