James Butler, e. Ormond, brought before the Jcr of Ire. at Carlow the K.'s former enemy and rebel John O'Bryn, chieftain of les O'Brynnes,1 who was prepared to be restored to the K.'s peace, where the said captain with others of his surname were received into the K.'s peace and pledges were given for hostages to the Jcr for the keeping of the peace. The K. granted the earl £10 for his service and for his expenses incurred concerning this. Afterwards, with the agreement of the Jcr and council, it was ordained that the earl should go with many men-at-arms, hobelars and foot to Munster to strengthen the peace there; and, having gathered to himself men-at-arms, hobelars and foot, he began that journey; and the K. granted him £20 for the said reasons. ORDER to pay him those £30.

Although on 10 Feb. [1358] last the K. assigned to Avelina, widow of Maurice fitz Thomas, late e. Desmond, one third of the manor of Insula, co. Kerry, among other lands assigned to her in dower, she has, however, as yet not been dowered of that land, nor of one third of the manor of Ardagh in O'Conyll,1 nor of one third of the cantred of Desmond, nor of any knights' fees or advowsons of churches, as she asserts.

In response to a writ of certiorari as to the reason for taking [into the K.'s hand] the lands of Walter s. of John Lenfaunt junior in co. Kilkenny, the escheator returned that they were taken by virtue of a writ ordering Oliver fitz Eustace, then escheator in that county, to seize the lands of John Lenfaunt junior for various trespasses and felonies for which he was outlawed, knowing that the said lands then belonged to that John because he received the issues and profits of them. ORDER to remove the K.'s hand, because it is not consonant with law [quia non est juri consonum] that the lands of Walter should be taken for the felonies of John.

To the escheator.

In response to a writ of certiorari as to the reason for taking [into the K.'s hand] the lands of Jordan Dexcestre in cos. Waterford and Kilkenny, the escheator returned that they were taken by virtue of a writ of the K. addressed to John s. of Oliver de la Freigne, formerly escheator in co. Kilkenny, to seize all Jordan's lands in his bailiwick, because the same Jordan had arisen openly at war in Connacht, striving to destroy the K.'s people by force, as was more fully testified before the K.'s council by testimony of many faithful persons; and further, on inspection of the rolls of chancery, it was found that that writ emanated under the attestation of John Boulton, Jcr of Ire., and by his bill. And in response to another writ of certiorari addressed to the justice of Ire. concerning the process (if there be any) made concerning this against that Jordan, the justice returned that, having searched the rolls, it was not found that that J[ordan] had arisen at war against the K., nor anything for which his lands ought to be seized. ORDER to remove the K.'s hand.

Kilkenny
[To the T. and chamberlains of the Ex.]

The castle of Kylbele in the march of co. Carlow has lately been destroyed by les Onolans and their accomplices, Irish enemies and rebels; and as a result much of the country in the vicinity of that castle has been wasted by default of the same castle. For when it is complete and inhabited, that castle is often the greatest refuge for the K.'s faithful people of that county against the incursions of the Irish. John Cornwaille kt has now acquired that castle with appurtenances, and intends to repair and inhabit it, as an aid in defending the said country. He has pleaded before the Jcr and council for a suitable subsidy for the costs and labours incurred by him upon the repair and and inhabitation of the same. In consideration of the premises, K. has granted John £40. ORDER to pay him that sum.

To Thomas Mynot, escheator.

Wishing to be informed as to the reason for seizing the custody of the land of the heir of William s. of William St Leger in co. Carlow, which custody John St Leger, tenant, claims, until the heir comes of age, the K. ordered the escheator to return that reason into the chancery of Ire. under his seal. The escheator has informed the K. that the reason for taking that custody into the K.'s hand was that the said William s. of William held on the day he died, in demesne as of fee, the barony of Bargy, co. Carlow, of the heir of Thomas Brothirton, late earl of Norfolk, lord of the manor of Carlow (who was then a minor in the K.'s custody) by knight service; and the lands were taken [into the K.'s hand] by his death and by reason of the minority of his heir.

Afterwards it was found by inquisition taken before the escheator and returned into chancery that that William s. of William, who died on the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary 24 Edw. III [8 Sept. 1350], held that barony in demesne as in fee of John Segrave and Margaret his wife, one of the sisters and heirs of [Thomas Brothirton] earl of Norfolk; and that Margaret was of full age on the day William died, and for a long time beforehand; and that, after William's death, John and Margaret seized that barony into their hands by their attorney in Ire. as a custody, because of the minority of the heir of that William; and they sold that custody to John St Leger to have until William's heir comes of age. By virtue of that grant, the said John St Leger obrtained that custody until the day that the same was taken into the K.'s hand.

ORDER to remove the K.'s hand from the said custody, if it was seized for this and no other reason;' and to interfere no further in it and to restore any issues tkaen; saving always the K.'s rights.

Wishing lately to be informed as to the reason for seizing into the K.’s hand 160 acres of the land of John fitz Nicholas Barry, and appurtenances, in Kylmoryn, the K. ordered the escheator to inform the K. in his chancery of Ire. of the reason for that seizure under his seal, distinctly and openly, without delay; and the escheator returned to the K. that the reason for the seizure of the said manors into the K.’s hand was that John Barry kt, who held the said land and appurtenances of the K. in chief as a parcel of the lands and tenements of Olethan, alienated them to Nicholas Barry of Ely, father of the said John fitz Nicholas, whose heir he is, to himself and his heirs forever, the K.’s leave for this being neither sought nor obtained.

Afterwards, by an inquisition taken before the escheator at the K.’s command, it was found that in the time Edward I, the present K.’s grandfather, John Barry kt was seised in his demesne as of fee of 160 acres of land and appurtenances in Kylmoryn, as a parcel of the lands and tenements of Olethan, and alienated that land to Nicholas Barry of Ely, to himself and heirs, forever; and that when the alienation of the said land was made to the said Nicholas, and both before and after, the said land was held in chief of Maurice Carew, and not of us, nor of any progenitors of us; and that David fitz David fitz David Barry acquired for himself and his heirs forever a release and quitclaim from Thomas Carew, son and heir of the said Maurice, from all the services which the same David for his lands and tenements in the county of Cork was then bound to perform for him; and so the same David became the K.’s tenant in chief, in 10 Edw. III; and that this alienation was made in the time of Edward I; and that the said land is worth yearly in all issues 40s; and that the said land is held of David fitz David fitz David Barry by service of doing suit at his court of Olethan.

In response to a writ of certiorari as to the reason for taking [into the K.'s hand] 1 messuage and 1 carucate of land that belonged to Peter s. of William Poer of Rathgulby and Polroan, the escheator returned that one Joan Maidewell, who was the wife of Richard Poer, held them in dower on the day she died from the dower of that Richard, who held elsewhere of the K. in chief in dower. And because of Joan's death and the minority of Peter, cousin and heir of Richard, that messuage and land, which are held of other lords, were taken into the K.'s hand.

Afterwards it was found by inquisition that Joan held that messuage and land by demise of Peter s. of William le Poer for the term of her life, the reversion pertaining to Peter, who held them of the barony of Overk by suit of court; and that Peter is 30 years old and more; and that the said Joan died on St Peter in Chains last; and that the premises were worth 40d p.a.

Wishing lately to be informed as to the reason for seizing into the K.’s hand David fitz David Barry's manors of Olethan and Muscridonegan and appurtenances, the K. ordered the escheator to inform the K. in his chancery of Ire. of the reason for that seizure under his seal, distinctly and openly; and the escheator returned to the K. that the reason for the seizure of the said manors into the K.’s hand was that John Barry kt, who held the said manors of the K. in chief, with appurtenances, by knight service, alienated them to one Robert Coffyn chaplain, to hold for himself and his heirs forever, without having obtained the K.’s licence.

And by an inquisition taken before the escheator at the K.’s command, and returned into the said chancery, it was found that in the court of the Lord Edward, formerly K. of Eng., the present K.’s grandfather, in 13 Edw. III, by a fine levied before Robert Bagot and his associates, then Edward I’s justices of the Dublin bench, John Barry kt acknowledged that the manor of the castle of Olethan among other lands and tenements which had been his were the right of David fitz David Barry, and restored them to him in the same court, to have and to hold to the same David and his heirs of the chief lords of these fees, by the services pertaining to them, forever; and the said John, by another fine levied in the court of Edward I, in 14 Edw. I, before the said justices, acknowledged the manors of Buttevant, Lyscarewell, and Adnogrothan, with appurtenances, in Muscridonagan, to be the right of David fitz David himself, and in that same court gave them back to him to have and to hold to the same David fitz David and his heirs of the chief lords of those fees by the services that appertain to the said manors, forever, as can be more fully seen from the tenor of the said fines; and that Sir John Barry and David fitz David Barry who thus acquired the same manors held them of Maurice Carew by knight service; and when Sir Robert Coffyn obtained possession in the said manors he then held them of the said Maurice; and that at the time when the said manors of Olethan and Muscridonegan were thus alienated, the said John or Robert did not hold in chief any of those manors from Edward I, or Edward II or the present K.; and that the said manors, with appurtenances, are worth £60 p.a.; and that the said manors of Muscridonegan thus taken into the K.’s hands contain in themselves all the parcels contained in the K.’s writ concerning the reason for their seizure, except the manor of Olethan.

ORDER to remove the K.’s hand from the said manors thus taken by you into the K.’s hand, and thenceforth to interfere no further, if they be in the K.’s hand from that cause and no other, save always the K.’s right in this part; and to restore to those to whom they belong all profits from the same received from the time of their seizure into the K.’s hand, as is just.

And that the David fitz David fitz David Barry who died last acquired to him and his heirs forever a right, release, and quitclaim from Thomas Carew, son and heir of the said Maurice, of all services which the said David was then bound to perform to him for his lands and tenements in the county of Cork. And so the said David became the K.’s tenant in chief in 10 Edw. III. And that this alienation was made in 12 Edw. I.1 And that the said land is worth annually in all issues 13s 4d.

To the escheator.

Thomas Lynet has shown by petition beofre the Jcr of Ire. and the council that Matilda Loundres, mother of that Thomas, whose heir he is, was seised in fee of the manor of Roscarlon, co. Wexford, and continued thus seised until George le Poer, who had married her, and was indicted of various trespasses and felonies for which he was outlawed, and being convicted he forfeited the same. On account of this, that manor was taken into the K.'s hand with his other lands by Roger Darcy, then escheator, although the same George' obtained no estate in that manor, except by coverture of Matilda. Afterwards it was found by inquisition that the premises are true, and that George died in 22 Edw. III and Matilda in 25 Edw. III. ORDER to remove the K.'s hand.

To Gerald St Michael, attorney of the countess of Athol.

The K. has committed custody of the castle of Ferns, during pleasure, to the bishop of Ferns and Thomas Asteley, receiving the accustomed fee of £20 p.a. And because it was ordained of old that those who have castles or fortalices in marches of war [in guerrinis marchiis] should cause them to be kept from the issues of lands and tenements elsewhere in the land of peace, it appears to the K.'s council that the said castle ought to be guarded and kept from the issues of the manor of Casteldogh, one third of which is held by the countess in dower, because both that castle and manor belonged to David de Strabolgy, late earl of Athol. And for that reason two thirds of that manor (which are extended at £16 p.a., as is said) were taken into the K.'s hand and delivered to the said bishop and Thomas, keepers of that castle. ORDER to pay the remainder of those £20 to the said keepers annually out of the issues of the third part of the manor, while that custody lasts, reserving to the countess any issues and profits beyond that sum.

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

John Lumbard, citizen of Cork―to whom the K. gave the custody of the castle of Gynes, co. Cork, and also granted him 30 carucates of land in the same county for acting as keeper, to hae for due service, forever, rendering a rose for the first two years at St John the Baptist [++++], and thereafter 40s p.a.―has pleaded before the Jcr of Ire. and council, asserting that on account of the frequent invasions of the Irish and English malefactors and rebels he was scarcely able to cause any of the lands to be inhabited; and that, if he was able, the tenants were willing to pay little or no rent for the same these days; and that nevertheless they were so impoverished by such hostile incursions, robberies and plunderings that they propose to leave unless some remedy is found; such the same John is unable to receive as much as he has now expended in the custody of that castle from those tenants.

ORDER to inquire by oath [etc.] if the premises are true, and if they find that the rent and profits received annually are insufficient, then they are ot cause John to be exonerated at the Ex. for the arrears of the rent, which amount to £7.

To the T. and chamberlains of the Ex.

John Galbarr has pleaded before the Jcr and council that he kept at his own costs two fortalicies in Galbarreston and Rahalyn near Leighlin, in defence of the people of co. Carlow, which fortalices are in the march near les McMurthes & Obrynnes,1 the K.'s Irish enemies, who daily weigh down the said people with war. The said McMurthes, after Easter [1358] last past, despoiled John of arms and all his other goods and chattels, such that he cannot keep those fortalices any longer without receiving something for their custody. The K., believing that petition to be true at present, has granted him 100s. ORDER to pay those 100s to John.2

To the K.'s clerk, Thomas Mynot, escheator of Ire.

Wishing lately to be informed as to the reason for seizing into the K.’s hand 180 acres of the land of John fitz David Barry kt with appurtenances, in Coulristylan,1 the K. ordered the escheator to inform the K. in his chancery of Ire. of the reason for that seizure under his seal, distinctly and openly, without delay; and the escheator returned to the K. that the reason for the seizure of the said manors into the K.’s hand was that John Barry kt, who held the said land, with appurtenances, of the K. in chief
as a parcel of the manor of Olethan, alienated it to one William Bondyn to him and his heirs and assigns forever, the K.’s licence for this not being obtained.

Afterwards, by an inquisition taken before th escheator at the K.’s command, it was found that John Barry kt was seised in his demesne as of fee of the said lands, with appurtenances, as parcel of the lands and tenements of Olethan, and gave that land to the said William Bondyn, to him and his heirs and assigns forever; and that the said John never held the said land and appurtenances of us, nor of any of the K.’s progenitors, in capite, but that he held the said land of Maurice Carew, then chief lord of the said land; and that the said land is worth yearly 40s; and that David fitz David Barry is now the chief lord of the said land, and it is held of him by service of doing suit at his court, and that that alienation was made in the time of Edward I, the present K.'s grandfather.

ORDER to remove the K.’s hand from the said land, if it is in the K.’s hand for that reason and no other; and he is to interfere no further, saving always the K.’s right in this part; and he is to restore whatever issues he has received from the time of the seizure of the same into the K.’s hand, as is just.

Limerick
To the escheator.

In response to a writ of certiorari as to the reason for taking [into the K.'s hand] three messuages that belonged to Richard Ulf in Limerick, the escheator returned that Thomas s. of William Hampton had granted those messuages to the prior and brethren of the hospital of Holycross, Limerick, without the K.'s licence; and, on account of the statute prohibiting religious from acquiring lands without licence, the same prior, viz. Walter Ulf, caused that Thomas to enfeoff one Edmund Hobbe of those messuages, and that Edmund enfeoff one Richard Ulf, in defraudment of his church. And subsequently the same prior was removed, and one John Lawless was elected, who entered those messuages as the right of his church; and he enfeoffed one Gilpartelan, an Irishman, without having obtained licence.

Afterwards it was found by inquisition that Thomas never granted those messuages to the prior or brethren, but rather enfeoffed Edmund Hobbe without having made or making defraudment to the Statute of Mortmain; and thus the same Edmund was seised of the same under the following name, viz. Edmund Ulf of Carkynlis; and Edmund afterwards enfeoffed Richard Ulf, who was thus seised until John Lawless, having been elected as prior, disseised him and enfeoffed Gilpartelan, the Irishman. And subsequently the same Richard, while a minor, entered, and he held those messuages until they were taken into the K.'s hand.

ORDER to remove the K.'s hand.

To Thomas Mynot, escheator.

In response to a writ of certiorari as to the reason for taking a messuage and carucate of land that belonged to Henry Calf in Inchem{c} Wyther,1 the escheator returned that one Thomas Calf held those tenements on the day he died in fee of the heir of John Calf, former baron of Norragh [del Norragh], being a minor in the K.'s custody; and they were taken into the K.'s hand by Thomas's death and by reason of the minority of the heir of that baron, as a custody within a custody. Henry has provided contrary information that, by pretext of a certain enfeoffment that William Caldewell chaplain made in fee tail by his charter (which was shown in chancery) to Thomas s. of William Calf kt and Joan, daugher of Arnold le Poer, his wife, those tenements should remain to the said Henry after the death of Richard s. of John Calf, baron of Norragh, to whom that tenement ought to have remained; but as Richard had died without heirs male, Henry had been seised of the same for seven years and more; and that the premises were held of Robert Calf by service of 2s p.a. Afterwards it appeared by inquisition that it is so. ORDER to remove the [K.'s] hand.

In response to a writ of certiorari as to the reason for taking [into the K.'s hand] a carucate of land that belonged to the prior and brethren of the house of the Blessed Mary and St Edward the K. of Limerick, in Accon barre1, the escheator returned that one Walter Ulf, formerly prior of the said house―who held that carucate in free, pure and perpetual alms as of the right of the church of that house―alienated it to one Gerald Roche for a term of 26 years, in defraudment of his church, without the K.'s licence.

The K. has learned that, on account of various dissensions and discords that have lately arisen between their men and Richard Oge Barret and those of his surname, and David s. of Adam Barry and his men, they have invaded Richard's lands in warlike manner, even though he has surrendered himself before the Jcr of Ire. to stand to right to all things in this part, and they have burned the houses, granges and towns belonging to the said Richard and those of his surname to the detriment of the peace. Being unwilling to tolerate such evils, ORDER, under pain of forfeiture, that they are henceforth to desist entirely from committing such enormous injuries upon the same Richard while he is thus prepared to stand to right, or other faithful persons of the K.; and they are to seek justice from Richard and the other persons before the K.'s justices, who will hear and determine concerning their trespasses and excesses.1

To Thomas Mynot, escheator of Ire.

In response to a writ of certiorari as to the reason for taking [into the K.'s hand] 40 acres of land belonging to the abbot of Fourneys in Beaubec [de Bello becco], the escheator returned that a certain former abbot of Beaubec, qui fuit manus mortua, appropriated to himself and his church in perpetuity those 40 acres from the common land of the burgesses of the town of Drogheda on the side of Meath, without the K.'s licence; and it was shown to the K. on behalf of that abbot that Walter de Lacy was seised in fee of those 40 acres as a parcel of two carucates of his town of Killekeran, now named the manor of Beaubec [de Bello becco], and by his charter1 he gave to God and the church of the Blessed Mary and St Laurence of Beaubec and the monks residing there, in free alms, all his demesne of the said carucates with all the land which Betham and English had of him in that town. And Henry [III], K. of Eng., great-grandfather of the present K., confirmed that grant.2

And afterwards the abbot of Beaubec granted the manor of Beaubec by the K.'s licence to the then abbot of Fourneys in free alms; which gift was made to the said monks of Beaubec long before the publication of the Statute of Mortmain. ORDER that, if it appears by inquisition that those 40 acres are a parcel of the specified lands granted to the said abbot and convent, as in the premises, then he is to remove the [K.'s] hand.

Connolly notes that the phrase 'the said parts of Ulster' may be an error for 'to the said port of Sandwich' (ibid., p. 495 n. 2).
