John Brettan, remembrancer of the Ex., has shown by petition before the Lt and council that he was appointed by the K.'s commission to levy the K.'s debts and other profits in cos. Kilkenny, Wexford, Waterford, Cork, Kerry, Limerick and Tipperary, both inside and outside liberties, by order of Edmund Mortimer, late Lt, and the council. For this reason, he laboured in the K.'s service in those counties from 30 Sept. [1381] last to 1 April [1382] following at great expense and labour, without receiving anything from the K. He petitioned the late Lt and council and John Colton, formerly Jcr, for remedy, who granted him 40d a day for that time for those reasons. Those petitions are lost, as is said. He seeks a reward just as other clerks in similar offices have received. Because the truth of the premises has been testified to the Lt and council, the K. has granted him 40m his gift. ORDER to pay him that sum.

Gerald fitz Morice and Margaret his wife have pleaded that all their lands and tenements of Margaret's inheritance in cos. Cork and Limerick were taken into the hand of Edward III, the late K., on the death of Margaret's father John Roche, who held of Edward III in chief and whose heir Margaret is, by reason of Margaret's minority; and afterwards they came into the hand of the present K. for that reason. They were in the K.'s hand until St Nicholas last [6 Dec. 1381], when Gerald and Margaret proved her age before John fitz Rery, escheator, and afterwards had delivery of the said lands. And by writ of the Ex., the K. ordered the sheriffs of Cork and Limerick to levy the following sums for the royal service proclaimed at Cashel on the Saturday after Michaelmas [5 Oct. 1381], for the K.'s use, viz. that the sheriff of Cork should levy 2m from their lands in co. Cork, and that the sheriff of Limerick should levy 2m from their lands in co. Limerick. And on that day those lands were in the K.'s hand. On account of that order, the sheriffs levied those sums after the delivery of the said lands, to the grave damage of Gerald and Margaret. They seek remedy.

Because it is agreed by inspection of the rolls of the chancery of Ire. that the said royal service was proclaimed on that day at Cashel and that the said lands and tenements then and afterwards were in the K.'s hands, and wishing to do what is just towards Gerald and Margaret, ORDER to restore those 4m to Gerald and Margaret.

James Butler, e. Ormond, has shown by petition before the Lt and council that when he was Jcr a tally of £15 was levied for him by the T. in the receipt of the Ex., in Easter term [1378] 1 Ric. II, from the sheriff of Limerick of royal service proclaimed at Cashel in the time of the said Jcr [1378], in part-payment of his annual fee of £500. And although that tally was delivered to the earl, yet he has not received any of those £15 from the sheriff because the sheriff asserts that he could not have so great a sum of the royal service. The earl seeks that the tally be received from him and cancelled, and that payment or assignment of debts elsewhere of the said sum be made.

Wishing to do what is just towards the earl, ORDER to search the rolls, tallies and memoranda of the receipt of the Ex.; and if they agree that the tally was levied for the earl in the Ex., and then received from the earl, restored to the Ex. and cancelled so that the sheriff shall have no benefit or allowance from it, ORDER to pay the earl the said £15 or make fresh assignment.

Brother William Tany, prior of the hospital of St John of Jerusalem in Ire., and brother Roger fitz Thomas, preceptor of Kilbargy, confrere of the prior, have pleaded that Arthurus McMurgh, chieftain of his lineage, took eight horses worth £20 and more belonging to Roger in the time of the peace granted by the K to Arthurus. And Roger took 60 cows from Arthurus for the capture of the horses and for their restoration, by [assent] of Edmund Mortimer, late earl of March and Ulster, Lt, according to the custom of the marches of that land. He informed the Lt concerning these acts and the said Lt ordered him to retain the cows until the loss of the horses was reasonably made up to him by Arthurus. By virtue of this, he retained the cows until the present Lt and council ordained that 30 of the cows ought to be restored to Arthurus. The prior and Roger seek reward in consideration of the redelivery of the 30 cows to Arthurus. The K. has granted 100s to Roger of his gift for the above reasons. ORDER to pay him that sum.

John Tyrell, the K.'s serjeant-at-law, has shown that both in the time of Edmund Mortimer, late earl of March and Ulster, Lt of Ire., and also in the time of the present Lt in that land, he was personally present in all parliaments and great councils held in the parts of Leinster, at his own great cost and expense, to the nullification of his estate and manifest impoverishment, without having received anything from the K. for this reason. He seeks remuneration. The K. has granted him 10m as a gift by name of reward. ORDER to pay him that sum.

Roger, son and heir of Edmund Mortimer, late earl of March and Ulster, has petitioned the council that Greencastle in Ulster, which was the key to those parts and which lately at the time when the lordship of Ulster was in the hands of Edward III, late K. of Eng., was broken down and dilapidated. And for the repair and rebuilding of Greencastle a certain mason took £40 for his labour in repairing the great tower of that castle, and the earl [Edmund] provided the mason with lime, stone, carts and other things necessary for the repair of said tower, as is contained in the indenture made between John Bellew, late constable of that castle and the mason. The said tower is 60 feet in length and 32 feet in width. The mason worked on the tower for the most part and received £20 in part-payment of the said £40 for the completion of said work.

Now, because of a failure to pay the mason the other £20, he will not complete the work, to the damage of the K.’s faithful people of those parts. Roger seeks payment of the £20 not yet paid to the mason and for other reasonable sums for lime, stone, labour and transport, and other things necessary for the completion of the work. Considering the useful position which the castle will hold for our lieges of those parts if repaired, and wishing for the full construction of the said tower, ORDER to pay the said mason the remaining £20 according to the force and tenor of the said indentures. Also ORDER to pay John White, clerk of the works of the said castle, £12 in order to buy lime, stone, labour, transport and other things required for the work, such that said John renders a faithful account of the said £12 in the Ex. or before auditors appointed in the Ex.

Thomas Bathe clk has pleaded that in the time of Edmund Mortimer, late earl of March and Ulster, Lt, the K. appointed Thomas to levy his money in cos. Meath, Dublin, Louth and Kildare; and in the levying of the said money by virtue of said commission and by order of the Lt, he was engaged for three weeks; and afterwards he was engaged for half a year and more in the levying of subsidies in those counties granted to the K. on various occasions; and another time he was engaged for a quarter year and more in the levying of the K.'s debts in those counties by another commission of the K. after the death of the earl at great expense and labour. Thomas brought over £600 of the said K.'s money and subsidies to the receipt of the Ex., as appears in the records there. And he received no remuneration except 20m, although he spent over £40 beyond the loss of horses and equipment. He seeks remedy. The K. has granted 20m to Thomas of his gift. ORDER to pay him.

Nicholas Whyt, executor of the will of Stephen [Valle], late bishop of Meath, pleads that the K. lately wished, for various reasons, to be informed as to the amount of surplus the said bishop had in various accounts owed to Edward III and the present K. rendered before the T. and barons of the Ex. The K. ordered the T. and barons to inform him concerning that surplus in the chancery of Ire. They returned that on examining the rolls and memoranda it was found in the great roll 4 Ric. II [1380–1] that the bishop accounted at the Ex. for £246 16s 3¼d of various debts of his, by brother Nicholas, executor of the late bishop's will. And the late bishop had a surplus in that account of £87 3s 8¾d and a half. Wishing that the executor should have satisfaction of the said surplus, ORDER to pay him that sum or assign it in debts.

Lately it was found by inquisition taken before Roger, son and heir of Edmund Mortimer, late earl of March and Ulster, Lt, that Reric fitz Rery was seised in fee of one carucate in Corbaly, a parcel of the manor of Clogheran, co. Dublin, held in chief by knight service; and he died thus seised having demised the same to Peter Wakesfeld for 20 years. After Reric's death, the same was seized into K.'s hands by reason of the minority of Joan, daughter and heiress of Thomas fitz Rery, son and heir of Reric. Peter [Wakesfeld] continued in possession for eight years after Reric's death; and Robert Holywood kt held the same for five years after the said eight years. Thomas Staunton, who had married the said Joan in the mean time, proved her age and Edward III delivered the said lands and tenements to Thomas and Joan as daughter and heir of Thomas fitz Rery, her father. They occupied the same for eight years without licence and therefore they were seized into K.'s hands. The K. has pardoned them all trepasses for a fine of £20. ORDER to exonerate them of all demands of that fine.

Geoffrey White of Dundalk pleads that in the time of Edmund Mortimer, late earl of March and Ulster, formerly Lt of Ire., he paid a fine of 20m for a pardon for various matters, as is contained in the record; and although afterwards the Lt granted that Geoffrey be exonerated of 10m of the said fine because of his expenses in resisting the Irish enemies in the marches of co. Louth, nevertheless Geoffrey did not pursue the exoneration and the 20m is still being demanded. Considering his expenses and labours, and the grant of the Lt, and the damages, labours and expenses incurred by him in resisting O Neill and other Irish enemies in Ulster after the death of the Lt, from day to day, he seeks exoneration of those 10m.

Wishing that the children of the K.'s cousin, Edmund Mortimer, earl of March and Ulster, the K.'s Lt in Ire., should be well provided for at the K.'s expense in food and clothing [in victu et vestitu] until the K. should ordain otherwise, the K. ordered the T. and chamberlains by writ of the p.s. to pay John Keppok by indenture from the issues of that land, that which is necessary for the sustenance of the said children and their household, for as long as those children remain. And by another writ of the p.s., the K. ordered John to spend that which he shall receive by indenture from the T. and chamberlains upon those children and their household. Because, however, at the time of the arrival of the said letters in Ire., the said John was unable to act for various reasons concerning the premises, the K. appointed Ralph Beltesford by letters patent on advice of the Lt and council to take John's place in doing what is more fully contained in the said letters.

As the K. has now been informed that, for various lawful reasons declared before Lt and council, Ralph cannot act in the premises, he has appointed Walter Eure by other letters to attend to the premises and to pay the expenses of Thomas Mortimer, justice of pleas following the Lt and deputy of the said Lt, and his company; and to pay the fees and wages of men-at-arms, archers, serjeants, and members of the household [familiariis] remaining with the Lt in his household and with Thomas for the defence of Ire.; and to pay for clothes and other necessities of the said children and for food, transport, wages and expenses, and all other costs, by the view and control of John Wermyngton clk, parson of the church of Kildalk; as is more fully contained in those other letters.

The Lt and council agreed that £600 should be paid to Walter from the issues of Ire., by indentures made between him and T. and chamberlains for those costs and expenses. ORDER to pay Walter the said £600.

Geoffrey Vale has pleaded to the K. by his petition displayed before the Lt and others of the K.'s council in Ire. in a certain council held at Naas on the Friday after St Hilary last [16 Jan. 1383] that at various times in the time of Edward he had sustained many costs and expenses in the service of Edward III, both in retaining men in his company and buying horses and arms, and also upon scouting and [night]-watches [circa exploraciones and vigilias] performed by him and his said men in salvation and defence of the faithful lieges of co. Carlow, and he does not cease to incur [those expenses] daily. And that Geoffrey, with God's aid, killed one Donatus Kevenagh, called McMorgh, who sought while he lived to destroy and devastate Leinster and the K.'s faithful people there from day to day. In recompense for those labours, costs and expenses, and the said good service, Edward III by advice of the governor and others his council of Ire. granted Geoffrey a certain reward of £100 in a parliament held at Kilkenny in the octaves of Michaelmas 49 Edw. III [6 Oct. 1375], to have of the K.'s gift for the said reasons. Geoffrey has, however, only obtained 60s of those £100, and seeks payment of the remainder of that sum being in arrears.

Wishing to act with grace towards Geoffrey for the said reasons, the K. ordered the T. and chamberlains to search the rolls and memoranda of the Ex. concerning the premises, returning their finding to the K. in the chancery of Ire. without delay. They returned that, having searched the rolls and memoranda, it appeared that of those £100, £97 are in arrears. As it appears by inspection of the rolls of chancery that Edward III granted those £100 to Geoffrey in the said form, and wishing therefore that Geoffrey should be duly satisfied, as he ought, it was agreed by advice of the K.'s council that Geoffrey should have from the K.'s treasury 20m in his hand for the present year, and 20m from year to year thereafter. ORDER to pay Geoffrey 20m p.a., until the satisfaction is fully made of the whole sum.

Richard Walsh, one of the chamberlains of the Ex., has pleaded that because John Wyke, chief chamberlain, has stayed continually in Eng. for 1½ years now past concerning the accounts of various Irish treasurers of the issues and revenues of the land of Ire. rendered and to be rendered in the English Ex., Richard has been continually present at the town of Carlow, where the K.'s Ex. in Ire. is located, during John's absence, both in the time of vacations and also when the Ex. was open, and he could not and cannot absent himself from the same during John's absence. And he has sustained great labours and expenses in this part. And Richard was now lately despoiled by Onolan, chieftain of his lineage, and his men, then being then at the K.'s peace, of various goods and chattels of his to the value of £20, of which he cannot have restoration. Such that now, both because of his said costs and also his losses, he is so impoverished that he does not have the wherewithal to maintain his estate, unless the K. should make recompense to him in consideration for his petition and his expenses, losses and the grave burdens he sustained to the comfort of the K.'s lieges of that town and in resisting the K.'s Irish enemies and rebels who attack the town. Being inclined to his petition, the K. granted him 5m. ORDER to pay him.

To the T. and chamberlains of the Ex.

William Wellesley has pleaded that on 10 March [1382] last, the K. appointed him as keeper and governor of the castle and lordship of Carbury with appurtenances, to have and keep the same from that day for one year next following, receiving 200m p.a. for that custody, as is more fully contained in the letters of appointment. William spent all the profits of his lands beyond the said sum both on the retaining of many men of those parts lest they proceed to the K.'s enemies or dwell with them [ne ad inimicos nostros accederent nec cum illis conversarentur], and on the retaining of various other men to stay with William to reinforce him for the comfort and salvation of the K.'s lieges of those parts and in neighbouring areas; and various men and horses were lost in the said custody, and lately in the last arrival of a large army of the K.'s Irish enemies in the parts of Carbury many towns and hagards were burned, among them one large hagard that belonged to William for the sustenance and maintenance of the said custody, and 2 of his better horses were killed on that occasion. And William suffered many other damages and evils because of said custody during that time, to the manifest depression and nullification of his estate, as is said, unless the K. should wish to help him. Considering the premises, the K. has granted William £20 of his gift. ORDER to pay him.

Edward Perers has pleaded that at a hue lately raised in co. Kilkenny in resistance of the K.'s Irish enemies and rebels who had come to kill, despoil and burn within that county, and also for the salvation of that county and the neighbouring parts and the K.'s faithful lieges there, Edward together with others in his company encountered the Irish, and three horses belonging to Edward worth £20 were killed by the Irish in that encounter, to the grave overthrow and depression of his estate, unless the K. should wish to aid him. He seeks an aid in relief of his estate and recompense of his losses so that he might better labour in the K.'s service. Having consideration for the above, the K. has granted him 10m of his gift by name of reward. ORDER to pay him.

Wishing lately to be informed concerning the arrears owed to the K.'s beloved cousin, James Butler, e.
