To [Thomas Clifford kt] escheator of Ire.

In response to a writ of certiorari as to the reason for taking [into the K.'s hand] 1 messuage and 10 acres of land that belonged to Geoffrey Gerard in Tirdalgyn, co. Meath, it was returned those lands were seized because Geoffrey Gerard was seised in demesne as of fee of the said messuage and acres, which were formerly a parcel of the manor of Tirdalgyn, and were held of John Brayn by service of 1 grain of pepper as of that manor, and that the said manor was held of Peter Butler of the manor of Dunboyne for service of 20s p.a.; and he [Peter] held of Edmund Mortimer, late earl of March, as of his manor of Trim for 20s of royal service when scutage runs; and the manor of Trim is held of the K. in chief by knight service. The manor of Dunboyne came into the hand of the said earl on account of a certain escheat; and the same manors of Trim and Dunboyne are in the K.'s hand by the death of the said earl and by reason of the minority of Roger, his son and heir. Geoffrey alienated the said messuage and land in Tirdalgyn to John Comyn and Peter Dyer chaplains and to William Gerard to have to them and their heirs forever; and while the manors of Dunboyne and Trim were thus in the K.'s hand, the same John, Peter and William re-enfeoffed Geoffrey of the said messuage and land to have to himself and his heirs forever, without having obtained the K.'s licence. Because it was adjudged in chancery that this reason had no force in law, ORDER to remove the K.'s hand.

EXEMPLIFICATION of an enrolment of a certain agreement made by the prelates, magnates and commons of Ire. in various councils held by Philip Courtenay, Lt of Ire., at Dublin and Kilkenny, written in French:

'The prelates, lords and commons assembled at councils held at Dublin and Kilkenny in the present year [9 Ric. II]. Those assembled there were shown by the Lt and the K.'s council the mischiefs and very great perils afflicting the land of Ire. and the lordship of the K. and his poor lieges in those parts, and how and in what manner they might help in the future, either by themselves if they should have the power, or in any other manner.

Whereupon the prelates, lords and commons answered that—considering the great power of the Irish enemies and English rebels, both by their own strength and with other enemies of Scotland and Spain and elsewhere confederated with them, and also because of the weakness and poverty of the English lieges—they could in no way help themselves nor recover, without effectual help and recovery of their liege lord the K.; and that at this next season, as is likely, there will be made a conquest of the greater part of the land of Ire. The said prelates, lords and commons in those councils, with much deliberation and otherwise viewing and considering the said matter and the conquest which appeared to be imminent, were unable to find or think of any other remedy except the coming of the K., their lord, in person; and they sought from the said Lt and council permission choose certain messengers to inform the K. concerning those mischiefs and to sue for remedy. Whereupon the prelates, lords and commons who were assembled at those councils were charged on their allegiance by the Lt, who was present among them, to elect sufficient messengers to be sent to the K. to show him the said mischiefs and perils and to plead most humbly to his high majesty on behalf of the said prelates, lords and commons, that he might prepare in his own person to survey and visit his said lordship for the rescue and salvation of the same, and in resistance of the conquest likely speedily to be made, and for the salvation of his poor lieges in these parts.

The said prelates, lords and commons, so charged by their allegiance, elected the reverend fathers in God the archbishop of Dublin and the bishop of Ossory, to convey this message. These messengers were charged to plead with urgency and painful diligence to the K. that it might please his highness to visit his people to their perpetual succour. And in case the K. does not wish to consent to this (which God forbid!) that then they should urge for the greatest and most trustworthy lord of Eng. to come into the land of Ire., because it seems to them that the land cannot otherwise […] the mischiefs that the land has had this present year.'1

This EXEMPLIFICATION was made at the request of the said prelates, magnates and commons.

To Thomas Clifford kt, escheator of Ire., or his deputy in co. Wexford.

In response to a writ of certiorari concerning the reason for taking into the K.'s hand the manor of Roscarlan, which belonged to Simon Nyvell and Isabelle his wife, it appeared by an inquisition taken before Robert Euere, deputy escheator of Ire., and returned into chancery, that one Thomas Lynet was seised of the manor and held it by knight service of Laurence Hastings, e. Pembroke; and he gave the manor to Philip Furlang of la Horeton on condition that he re-enfeoff the said Thomas within three days, to have to him and his heirs male, with remainder to one John Lynet, his bastard son, to have to him and his heirs in the said form, with reversion to the right heirs of Thomas.

Philip was thus seised, but he neither re-enfeoffed Thomas Lynet nor, after Thomas's death, John the bastard, although Clement Roche, Thomas's attorney, often demanded that he do so. And Ismania, Thomas's daughter and heir and now wife of Simon [Nyvell], entered the said manor, claiming that it pertained to her by right of inheritance after the death of the same John, who died without heirs male; and Philip, notwithstanding the entrance of Ismania, continued his possession of the same, and died seised, leaving a minor, Fulk, as his son and heir. After Philip's death, the manor was taken into Edward III's hand by reason of the minority of John Hastings, son and heir of Laurence; and it remained in the K.'s hand until Simon and Isabelle recovered their seisin by writ of novel disseisin against Fulk, Henry and others before the Jcr on 8 June [1364] 38 Edw. III, and by two other writs addressed to the Jcr , and a writ was addressed to the sheriff to deliver seisin to them.

It was also found that Isabelle was confirmed by the bishop in the name of Ismania but baptized in the name of Isabelle, and is known by either name; and that the said manor is worth 100s.

On 10 Dec. [1385] last, Simon and Isabella appeared in chancery by their attorney and sought that the K.'s hand should be removed and for restoration of the issues received by the K. And because the same should not be restored until a reasonable fine for livery or fealty is paid, they seek their ignorance of the premises and their poverty be considered. The K. pardons them the fine. ORDER to deliver the manor to them together with the said issues.

March, Lt of Ire., he was made Jcr of Ire. by the advice of the K.'s council, and that Thomas Mortimer and others of the retinue of the said Lt left the Jcr alone in county Cork without a retinue. Therefore, he retained at his own expenses Peter Perborum, a man-at-arms, and ten archers for 16 days, Peter taking 10d a day and the each of the archers taking 6d a day; and he paid £4 16d for their victuals for the same time; and 40s for a ship to carry Richard Barret and other felons captured by him at Cork to Waterford; and 33s 1d for victuals. As it has been witnessed by Alexander [Balscot], bp Ossory, C., then T., that the premises contain the truth, ORDER to pay the archbishop £7 14s 5d.

To the T. and barons of the Ex.

John [Griffin], bp Leighlin, has shown by petition that on 12 Aug.

ORDER to exonerate the bishop in his account of the issues [etc.] from the said 12 Aug. for a term of one year.

To the T. and barons of the Ex.

The K. and council in Eng. lately ordained that the lordships of Ulster and Meath, which came into the K.'s hand on the death of Edmund Mortimer and by reason of the minority of Roger, his son and heir, should be governed as liberties, just as in the time of Edmund, as he declared plainly in the K.'s letters addressed to the C. of Ire. Whereupon, by advice of the Lt and council of Ire., it was ordained that a close seal [unum sigillum clausum] containing on one side a chivalrot of the K.'s arms, and on the other side an image of the K. enthroned with a sceptre in his right hand [ymaginem Regis in throno cum sceptro in manu dextera], with the following inscription on the circumference of each side:

'Sigillum Ricardi Regis Anglie et Francie, domini Hibernie et custodis libertatis Ultonie'.1

And a similar seal was to be made for the liberty of Meath, putting the word 'Midie' in the place of the word 'Ultonie'. Therefore, on 8 March [1382] 5 Ric. II the K. ordered the T. and barons to have such seals made.2

As the K. has learned from the testimony of Alexander [Balscot], bp Ossory, now C., then T., that as he was at that time occupied elsewhere on the K.'s business, the K. ordered William Boltham, then T. of the Meath, to cause the two silver seals to be made without delay out of the issues of [the liberty of] Meath. The said seals cost 113s 4d, for manufacture and poisa. ORDER to cause William Boltham, formerly T. of Meath, to have allowance of that sum in his account.

To Thomas Clifford kt, escheator of Ire.

Richard Cruys has shown the K. by petition displayed to the Lt and council that John Gernoun and Thomas Cruys lately had full and peaceable seisin in one messuage and half a carucate in Passeleweston in the tenement of Castleknock, and one messuage and half a carucate in Macieston in the said tenement. John and Thomas granted the same by their deed to Richard Cruys and Mabel his wife for 24 years beginning in 44 Edw. III [1370–71], rendering a rose and 2m for one portion and a rose and 12s for the other portion. Afterwards, Thomas and John having died, the premises passed to John Dowdall and Isabelle his wife,1 sister and heir of the said John Gernoun, and John and Isabelle were seised as tenants until the escheator took the same into the K.'s hand on account of the outlawry of the said John. ORDER, having received the reserved rent, to remove the K.'s hand and restore the premises.

To Thomas Clifford kt, escheator of Ire.

By letters patent of Eng., the K. ordered Philip Courtenay, Lt of Ire., to inform him, by advice of the K.'s council there, concerning judgements erroneously rendered since the Lt's departure from Ire. and charters improvidently granted [etc.]. And after the Lt's departure [from Ire.], James Butler, [e. Ormond] Jcr, granted to George Meriet1 the custody of all the lands and tenements that belonged to Edmund Hussey, late baron of Galtrim dcd, who held of Roger, son and heir of Edmund Mortimer, late earl of March and Ulster, dcd, who held of the K. in chief, a minor in the K.'s custody; to have until the heir [of the baron of Galtrim] should come of age, together with his marriage without disparagement. Those lands [etc.] had come into the K.'s hand on the death of the late baron [of Galtrim] and by reason of the minority of Peter, his son and heir. Because that custody was made to the K.'s damage, the K. ordered the sheriff of Meath to notify George [Meriet] and William Nugent, to whom George had committed the custody, to appear in chancery to show why said letters should not be revoked and the custody resumed into the K.'s hands. The sheriff summoned them to appear in the chancery at Trim, but they did not appear. Therefore said letters have been revoked. ORDER to resume the custody into the K.'s hand and to distrain for any profits received.

[To the T. and barons of the Ex.].

Andrew Daundon, late archdeacon of Meath and parson of the church of Kells annexed to it, owed 300m to the K. The bishop of Meath was ordered to inquire concerning all the issues and profits belonging to Andrew and to seize the same. They were thus seized and valued at £56 0s 16d. Later, William Karlell [dcd], archdeacon of Meath, petitioned for a grant of those profits, rendering annually £56 0s 16d less £22 3s 4d to support of the charges of the said benefices. John Karlell clk, William's brother, now seeks allowance of that sum from the time of William's death. ORDER to grant John allowance in his account.
