Francis Bruyn entered without the K.'s licence into the seisin of the castle of Rathdoun, which is held of the K. in chief and was then in the K.'s hands. He was fined 100s for that contempt, but because the castle is situated in the marches of Leinster on the frontier of the Irish, and was for the most part destroyed by the incursions of the Irish and because he intends to rebuild and repair that castle in aid of the K.'s lieges, Francis pleaded that the fine should be remitted and that he should have allowance for the repairs of the castle. The K. has remitted that fine on condition that Francis spends the money on the repair of the castle, giving surety for the expenditure. ORDER to pay him those 100s or to make assignment to him.

To the T. and chamberlains of the Ex.

Edmund Mortimer, earl of March and Ulster, has shown by petition that Roger [Mortimer], father of the present earl, whose heir he is, died seised in demesne as of fee in the time of Edward III, grandfather of the present K., viz. on 26 Feb. [1360] 34 Edw. III, of a certain annual rent of 25m to be received by him and his heirs from Edward III and his heirs at the Ex. of Ire. at Easter and Michaelmas terms in equal portions for the site of the castle of Blachagh in the town of Drogheda on the side of Meath, which the K.'s progenitors had of the enfeoffment of the earl's ancestors, as might appear in the records of the Ex. of Ire. Edmund sought arrears of this rent from the time of the death of his father.

Wishing to do what is right, the K. ordered the T. and barons to search the rolls [etc.] and if they agree that the earl's ancestors were satisfied of that rent, then they were to inform the K. in the chancery of Ire. concerning the arrears. They returned that it was found in the memoranda for 35 Edw. III among the recorda of Hilary term that the late earl was satisfied of the annual rent of the castle formerly called Castelblachagh until 26 Feb. [1360] 34 Edw. III, on which day the earl died. The arrears of the present earl amount to £353 5s 5¼d from that 26 Feb. [1360] until 10 May [1381] last, viz. for 21 years and 73 days at a rate of 25m p.a. ORDER to pay him that sum.

III—the age having been proved of Philippa, daughter and heir of Lionel, duke of Clarence, and Elizabeth his wife, both dcd, who held of the K. in chief and whom Edmund Mortimer, earl of March and Ulster, took as his wife—Edward III took the fealty of Edmund, earl of March and Ulster, for all the lands that the late duke of Clarence held in demesne as of fee and also by the law of Eng. after the death of Elizabeth his wife, whose heir Philippa was; and he restored those lands [etc.] to the earl and Philippa. By various writs, the K. ordered his escheators in various counties of Eng. to give them full seisin of all the lands taken into the K.'s hand on the death of the duke of Clarence. On 13 Sept. [1369] following, by writ of Eng.,1 Edward III ordered William Windsor, then the K.'s Lt of Ire., to deliver to the earl and Philippa all the lands in Ire. taken into the K.'s hand on the death of the duke of Clarence, together with the issues received since 24 Aug. [1369]. The earl has petitioned that Edward III received part of the issues after that 24 Aug., as may be contained in the records of the Ex. of Ire. He seeks remedy.

The K. ordered the T. and barons of the Ex. of Ire. to search the rolls and memoranda of the Ex. from that time concerning sums of money paid to Edward III from those issues since 24 Aug. [1369], and to inform the K. concerning their findings in the chancery of Ire. They returned that it was found that William Karlell clk made a fine of £100 in discharging his account of the custody of the lands of the late duke of Clarence in Meath, Leinster and Munster, in the K.'s hand by reason of the death of the duke and the minority of Philippa, from that 24 Aug. [1369] until Michaelmas [1370] 44 Edw. III; for which £100 William Karlell has accounted and is quit. Wishing to do what is right to the earl, ORDER to deliver the said £100 to the earl.

To John fitz Rery, escheator of Ire.

Joan, widow of William Ilger, formerly escheator of Ire., has shown by her petition that her husband was seised in his demesne as of fee of 2 messuages in the town of Kilkenny, 60 acres of land in Kylmelag and 40 acres in Fynell in co. Kilkenny; and William owed the K. various sums. As Joan was married to William long before he incurred those debts, she claims to be entitled to her dower by the law and custom of Ire., and seeks assignment of the same.

To the escheator of Ire.

The K. wished to be informed concerning the reason for taking into his hand of 1 messuage, 80 acres of land, 40 acres of pasture, 30 acres of wood and 12 acres of moor in Legan; 1 messuage and 60 acres of land in Balyfolagh;1 1 messuage and 60 acres of land in Hamondestoun; and 40 acres in Malbane, which belonged to the prior of Bath in Eng. In response to a writ of certiorari, John fitz Rery, escheator of Ire., returned in the chancery of Ire. that it was found by inquisition that John, K. of Eng., enfeoffed the prior of Bath with the premises, together with the church of St John the Baptist near Cork, in order for the relief of the blind and lame, and to find there a monk who ought to be presented by the said prior to the C. of Ire., and that the said prior ought to perform and maintain the said alms and services for the souls of the progenitors of the said K. forever, to hold the said church and premises by the said services. It was also found that the alms were not performed for six years successively. In answer to this, the prior of Bath, pleaded that this reason was insufficient to justify the seizure, and he sought the restoration of those lands. As the reason was insufficient, ORDER to cause the said prior to have restoration of the same lands.

To the T. and chamberlains of the Ex.

John Colton, C. of Ire., has shown the K. by petition that he was in Munster for a quarter year when the K.'s cousin, Edmund Mortimer, earl of March and Ulster, was Lt of Ire.; and he had in his company 4 men-at-arms, 8 archers for the security of himself and the [great] seal at his own expense, without receiving any wages for them, even though other chancellors before him were accustomed to have wages from the K. for 6 men-at-arms and 12 archers. The issues and profits of that seal were so small [exigua] that nothing could be obtained from them. And after the death of the Lt and the withdrawal of his household and retinue from the parts of Cork, where the K.'s Irish enemies and English enemies were attacking, the C. remained there for the safety and security; and on that occasion he retained with him knights, esquires and other defensible men at his own expense, without receiving anything from the K. He seeks a sufficient reward. Having consideration for his plea, both for his labours and expenses in the time of the late Lt and for the retaining of the knights [etc.] after the said Lt's death until the day John was made Jcr, the K. has granted him £40 of his gift. ORDER to pay him that sum.

Edward Perers, constable of Kilkenny castle, has shown by petition before the Lt and council that, by order of Edmund Mortimer, earl of March and Ulster, Lt of Ire., Richard St Aubyn, malefactor, was placed in Edward's custody in the prison in that castle [Kilkenny], where he was kept from the Ascension last [23 May 1381] until St Peter in Chains following [1 Aug.]; and afterwards, at his own expense, Edward brought Richard to Comcy to receive his indictment for his deeds, with others of his company for Richard's safe custody, without receiving anything for Richard's sustenance and custody. And he incurred various expenses for Richard's custody against the malice of various adherents of Richard who intended to break into the castle by night and free Richard. He seeks remedy. The K. has granted him 40s of his gift. ORDER to pay him that sum.

To John fitz Rery, escheator of Ire.

The K. has learned by inquisition returned in the chancery of Ire. that James de la Hyde kt was lately seised of the manor of Balymadoun, co. Dublin, to which the advowson of the vicarage of the church of Balymadoun is appendant, in his demesne as of fee, by knight service; and he gave the said manor to William Faunt and William Callan, chaplains, and to Stephen White, vicar of the church of Cnokmark, to have forever. They gave the same to Christopher s. of Robert Preston kt, Roger Winter chaplain, Thomas Nany chaplain and David Averill1 chaplain, and to Ralph Myle, vicar of the church of Balyscadan, and their heirs, forever. By virtue of that grant, they became seised of the manor and acquired letters patent from Edward III pardoning them for acquiring the same without having obtained the K.'s licence.

It was also found that Joan, widow of James [de la Hyde], married Maurice fitz Eustace of Balycotelan; and they obtained a writ addressed to the sheriff of Dublin against Christopher [etc.] for one third of the said manor as her dower, and she recovered the same. She died seised of the same on the next Tuesday after Epiphany last [7 Jan. 1382], whereupon her dower portion was seized into the K.'s hand. ORDER, at the request of Christopher [etc.], to cause them to have full seisin of the said portion, being in the K.'s hand.

To the T. and chamberlains of the Ex.

Wishing that the children of Edmund Mortimer, late earl of March and Ulster, then in Ire., should be well and securely kept and clothed at the K.'s expense until he ordered otherwise, the K. ordered by letters of the p.s. that the T. and chamberlains should pay by indenture from the issues of Ire. to John Kepstoun clk that which should be reasonably necessary for the sustenance of those children from time to time, for as long as they remained in that land and until the K. ordered otherwise. And by another writ under the p.s., the K. ordered John to receive by indenture that which the T. and chamberlains should pay him and to spend it on the sustenance of those children. Because John cannot attend to the premises for various reasons, and trusting in the loyalty of Ralph Beltisford, parson of the church of Dungarvan, the K. has appointed Ralph on the advice of Roger, son and heir of the late earl of March, Lt of Ire., and the K.'s council to attend to the expenses of a certain part of the Lt's household in the company of Thomas Mortimer, justice of pleas following the Lt and deputy of the Lt for the governance of the land of Ire. by reason of the Lt's tender age, by view and control of John Wermyngton clk, parson of the church of Kildalk. Concerning this, it was agreed by the Lt and council that £1000 should be paid to Ralph from the issues of Ire. by indentures from time to time for the provisions and other things attended to by Ralph. ORDER to pay Ralph those £1000 from the issues of that land.

[13 Jun. 1382]

MEMORANDUM that the K.'s council in Ire. considered that it was within the power of the K.'s Irish enemies and English rebels to make a general conquest by destroying the K.'s subjects, and that Roger, son and heir of Edmund [Mortimer], e. March, is by no means able to resist their malice for want of arms and archers and the insufficiency of the K.'s treasury. Lest such a conquest should be made, it was ordained by the Lt and council that Alexander [Balscot], bp Ossory, should cross to Eng. to inform the K. and his council there concerning the state of Ire. and to declare that the K.'s issues and revenues are insufficient to resist the said enemies and support the Lt and the other children of Edmund Mortimer, late earl of March; and the bishop should seek a remedy for the good governance of Ire. in the present urgent necessity. The bishop is to have 20s a day from the K.'s treasury for his expenses on his journey to Eng., staying there and returning, from the next Friday after Holy Trinity, on which day he came to Dublin before going to Eng.; and it was agreed that he should have 100m before his departure.1

James Butler, e.

He seeks reward for his expenses and labours in coming to that council and staying there. Being inclined to his plea, the K. has granted him 10m of his gift as a reward for his labours and expenses in various marches for the salvation of the land after the death of the Lt, and for his journey to that council. ORDER to pay him that sum.

To the T. and chamberlains of the Ex.

Richard [Wye], bp Cloyne, has pleaded that after the death of Edmund Mortimer, late earl of March and Ulster, he came to Cork to a council there at his own expense to advise the K. concerning the governance and keeping of the land; during his absence, certain malicious persons came to the castle of Cloyne and took sums of gold and silver belonging to the pope and the church of Cloyne as well the bishop, and carried them away, to the impoverishment of the bishop. The K. by a writ of quare impedit against the bishop and one Thomas Striker clk had recovered the presentation to the prebend of Kilcredan, diocese of Cloyne, which was vacant and in the K.'s gift, and the said bishop was amerced in 100s for his unjust impediment. The bishop seeks to be pardoned of that amercement in recompense for his expenses and labours in coming to the K.'s council at Cork, staying there and returning. Because the council is satisfied that his petition is true, the K. granted the bishop 100s of his gift. ORDER to pay him that sum or assign it in debts, which the bishop owes the K.

Philip fitz Lesagh Walsh pleads that, on the advice of the K.'s council, the K.'s cousin Edmund Mortimer, earl of March and Ulster, dcd, granted 100m to Philip as a reward for the capture of one Richard St Aubyn [Seint Aubyn], the K.'s rebel and malefactor, seized by Philip and delivered to the K.'s court and indicted by the same to the relief of the whole of Ire. Alexander [Balscot], bp Ossory, T. of Ire., was ordered to pay him that sum, but because the T. did not receive sufficient warranty by the K.'s writ under the g.s. of Ire. to pay that sum, he refused to pay Philip. Therefore, Philip pleaded that a writ of liberate for those 100m should be sent to the T. and chamberlains. As it was testified before the Jcr and council that those 100m were granted to Philip by the Lt, and that Philip has not yet been paid, ORDER to pay Philip the said 100m.

To the T. and chamberlains of the Ex.

Master John Colton, dean of Dublin, Jcr of Ire., has shown by petition before the Jcr and council that after the death of Edmund Mortimer, earl of March and Ulster, late Lt of Ire., John was made Jcr of Ire. by letters patent under the g.s. used in Ire. by nomination of the prelates, magnates and commons and other faithful persons attending a council at Cork. The county and community of Cork were then at war; and because of the sudden withdrawal from Cork of the household of the late Lt and all of the paid soldiers [stipendiariorum] in the Lt's company, John had to retain various defensible persons both within his household and without beyond the 20 men-at-arms that he had to maintain from his fee as Jcr. After that withdrawal, he did not have sufficient men-at-arms and archers to resist the malice of the K.'s enemies and rebels. The said Jcr treated with various English and Irish marchers [marchionibus] to appease that malice. By this, Jcr sustained and still sustains grave expenses in his household, which he cannot continue to sustain within his fee of £500 p.a. without unbearable damage. Wishing that adequate reward should be made for his expenses in the premises and having consideration for his labours and expenses, the K. has granted him £20. ORDER to pay him that sum.

On the death of Edmund Mortimer, e. March and Ulster, Lt of Ire., lately deceased, and the immediate withdrawal from Munster of the men-at-arms and archers who were in his company at the K.'s wages, the K.'s lieges of those parts were stupefied, much to the comfort of the K.'s enemies; and Obreen of Thomond with an excessive force of enemies and rebels sought to make a general conquest in cos. Limerick, Kerry and Cork. And John Colton, dean of Dublin, then Jcr of Ire., could not stay in Munster without damage to the K. and his land of Ire. because of the wars and discords in Leinster. On the advice and consent of the Jcr, T. and council, it was ordained and agreed that Gerald s. of Maurice, e. Desmond, should proceed to Limerick to subdue the malice of Obreen and his adherents with a prudent treaty. And because the said earl—on account of the great expense he incurred fighting against his adversaries of the parts of Desmond—was unable to assume any labours against Obreen [etc.] without grave costs, it was agreed on the advice of the Jcr, T. and all the council that the said earl, as an aid for the defence and salvation of cos. Limerick, Kerry and Cork against the malice of the Irish enemies and English rebels, should have 200m for the next quarter year. ORDER to pay the earl 100m of those 200m.

Obreen Moel has petitioned the Jcr and council that on the advice of William Windsor, then governor and keeper of Ire., and the K.'s council there, he was made captain of Thomond, which he held under the K.'s obedience until he was expelled from the said captaincy and parts [of Thomond] through lack of help from the English there and by the power and malice of Obreen [Shram]agh, the K.'s Irish enemy, to his damage. Nevertheless, after his expulsion he retained with him 100 horse for the K.'s service, who were received and sustained by various of the K.'s faithful people in co. Limerick. Now those horse are expelled from that country without receiving anything, and Obreen Moel has nothing among in that county nor elsewhere by which he might receive and sustain his men. As a result, they intend to withdraw from Obreen and adhere to the K.'s enemies, to the damage of the K.'s faithful subjects. Obreen Moel seeks sufficent reward by which the said men can be retained for the K.'s comfort and that of his faithful people.

Obreen Moel is newly ordered before the Jcr and the K.'s beloved cousin James Butler, e. Ormond, and others of the K.'s council to be with the K. and his faithful people, and to do all he can diligently to impede and repulse the malice of Murgh Obreen, captain of the K.'s Irish enemies, and other Irish in confederation against the K. and his faithful people; and he is also charged by the Jcr to go to Connacht to treat with the said Murgh Obreen and other Irish to assuage their malice. For this and the reasons contained in his petition, the K. has granted him 10m of his gift. ORDER to pay him those 10m by assignment or tally made or levied by Thomas Talbot, clerk of the hanaper of the chancery of Ire.

Brother John Leycestre, vicar general of the Friars Preachers in Ire. has petitioned that the K.'s cousin James Butler, e. Ormond, lately granted to the vicar and brethren of that order in Dublin £4 of his alms to repair and build their church and house; and concerning this, a tally for Thomas Holhirst, formerly Edward III's collector of customs, in part-payment of the earl's fee of £18 5s, which the earl received annually from Edward III for his fee as constable of Dublin castle, was to be levied before the T. and chamberlains of the Ex. and the said vicar and brethren were to receive the £4 in the earl's name from that collector in Easter term 49 Edw. III [1375] in the time of Thomas Scarlagh, abbot of St Thomas the Martyr near Dublin, deputy of master John Colton, T. of Ire. Afterwards Thomas Holhirst died, because of which the said vicar and brethren were unable to have satisfaction of the £4 from him or his executors, to their considerable damage and the delapidation of their houses. So that the tally might be renewed, they seek a new assignement of the £4 where they may be satisfied of the K.'s alms. ORDER to search the rolls, tallies and memoranda of the Ex. and if it is agreed that the assignment was made to the earl by Edward III, then on receiving the tally they are to annul and cancel it so that no one can benefit from it; and they are to make assignment of the £4 to the vicar and brethren.

Thomas Bathe, the K.'s clerk, has shown by petition that £13 was assigned to Robert Ashton, formerly Jcr of Ire., in the Ex. of Ire. in part-payment of certain debts owed by Edward III to the said Robert, viz. in Trinity term 49 Edw. III [1375] in the time of John Colton, T. of Ire. Concerning this, a tally was levied from Thomas Holhirst, then Edward III's collector of customs in the port of Dublin, which was delivered to Thomas Bathe to satisfy certain debts for which he had mainprized various creditors of Robert. And although Thomas satisfied those creditors for their money, he himself could not get the £13 from Thomas Holhirst because he had been expelled from the office of collector immediately afterwards and before he had accounted. Thomas [Bathe] asks that the tally be received and cancelled and that assignment of that sum [£13] should be made elsewhere. On account of Thomas's good service to the present K. and Edward III, ORDER to search the rolls and memoranda from Edward III's time, and if it is agreed that the assignment was made to Robert in that way and that Thomas Holhirst had no profit or allowance at the Ex., then on receiving the tally they are to annul and cancel it so that no one can benefit from it; and they are to pay the £13 to Thomas Bathe or make allowance to him of other debts.
