Afterwards it was found that there was no such collusion, but the K.'s hand was not removed because the writ of amoveas manus was not issued from chancery to the Ex.

He asked for recompense for his labours and expenses.

To the T. and chamberlains of the Ex.

In a certain ordinance made at Guildford in 42 Edw. III [1368–9] containing among other things that any lord or any other holding any lands or tenements whatsoever in demesne in Ire. should be personally there or send people in his name according to the value of the said lands, before Easter 43 Edw. III [1369], to remain there for the defence of the land on pain of forfeiture. And now [Alexander Balscot] the bishop of Ossory exhorts the K. that he lately vicar of Callan and prebendary of the prebend of Blakerath in that land was elected to the see of Ossory with the common assent of the dean and chaper of the said church by divine inspiration, and even though the said bishop on business connected with his election had gone to the curia in Rome at that time, nevertheless William Carlell, one of the barons of the Ex., took into the K.'s hand all fruits and profits of the benefice and prebend by reason of the bishop's absence, selling the fruits and profits to certain people of that land for 46m, for the K.'s use, to the damage of the bishop for which he prays remedy. On 25 July last, by writ of Eng., the K. ordered the then Jcr and T. that if the fruits and profits had been seized because of the bishop's absence and for no other reason, then the bishop shall be paid that which was answered for the K. of the said fruits and profits, from the Irish treasury. And the K., wishing to be informed of the amount from the said fruits and profits answered for the K. in the Ex., ordered the T. and chamberlains to examine all rolls and memoranda pertaining to the above, returning their findings to the Irish chancery. They returned that it was agreed that the amount answered for was £28 13s 4d. ORDER to pay this sum to the bishop.

Concerning the fees of Robert Lythum nothing is agreed, but of his wages Robert Lythum obtained allowance for his wages for the time of the account in the said account, that is of £49 8s at the rate of 2s a day, which are his arrears, and £30 10s 2½d paid by him to men-at-arms [etc.] over and above the sums recovered by him from the treasury on Robert Ashton, and Lythum had in surplus on his account £79 10s 2½d as contained therein. ORDER to pay Robert Ashton the said £764 18s 6d and to Robert Lythum £79 10s 2½d or make assignment in debts, or inform the K. of the reason why not.

To the abbot of Tintern.

The K. has been shown that the abbot and convent owe the prior and convent of Canterbury cathedral priory an annual pension of 13m for the income from churches in Ireland which the priory gave them. Although the pension is for spiritualities, it has been taken into the K.'s hand by virtue of the ordinance requiring those who hold lands and possessions in Ire. to reside there. The K. wishes to restore that pension to the priory and has issued a writ requiring the Jcr, C., T. and barons of the Ex. of Ire. to deliver to the prior or his attorney, notwithstanding the prior's absence from Ire. The prior appoints William Ilger and John Underhull' as his attorneys to receive the pension. In future it is not to be paid to the Ex. of Ire. or expended upon the K.'s wars there but paid to those attorneys. ORDER to the abbot to pay the pension to the prior just as he did before the ordinance.
