The tenants of the manor of Saggart have shown that Adam Talbot, sheriff of Dublin, in his account at the Ex., is charged with 100s of an immense sum of money owed by the community of the manor for arrears of farm from the time of the war of Art McMurgh, more that 40 years ago, and of which they have not yet paid anything. They have asked that the K. would give consideration to the poverty of them, the K.'s tenants, because they can scarcely pay their annual rent and that they have paid nothing of the arrears because during that time the lands and tenements of the manor were frista et vasta by reason of the war, and would exonerate the sheriff. ORDER to exonerate the sheriff and charge the tenants with the sum as they had previously been charged.

To the T. and barons of the Ex.

The Friars Minor of Dublin have shown that Bartholomew Crok, late citizen of Dublin, in his last will bequeathed 20m to remain in the custody of William Douce, lately a fellow citizen of the city, to fund to the brothers out of the profits and issues of the 20m bread, wine and wax for all masses to be celebrated in the house of the friars at Dublin in perpetuity. They have asked by petition to the deputy Jcr and council that the 20m after the death of William were taken into the K.'s hand among his own goods and chattels for debts owed by him to the K., so that the friars can find bread, wine and wax. ORDER to take inquest in presence of executors of William and, if found to be true, remove K.'s hand from the 20m.

The K. has been informed on behalf of Robert Clifford, one of the heirs of Richard Clare, that Richard lately owed the K. £500 0s 4d for arrears of his account of the time he was sheriff of Cork, for which Robert's lands and tenements in Any in co. Limerick, which descended to him by hereditory right after the death of Richard, by a partition made between Robert and Richard's other heirs, were taken into the K.'s hand, totally omitting and exonerating the lands and tenements of the other co-heirs, Bartholomew Badlesmere and his heirs in the land of peace viz. in co. Cork, so that £31 was levied from Robert's lands in Any. Robert has asked for remedy. ORDER to remove the K.'s hand from his land in Any by writ of Ex. to sheriff of Cork, cause £31 to be levied from Bartholomew's lands in co. Cork and the remainder to be charged in common on all Richard's heirs and their lands in proportion to their portions as is right.
