Dublin
To the sheriff of Limerick.

William, bp Emly, informed the K. by his letters that William Lyn, formerly vicar of Any in his diocese, and David Browery for a quarter year and more were condemned for heretical pravity by the said bishop, because of which their goods and chattels—which were extended at £28 0s 11d by an inquisition taken before the said bishop—were adjudged to fall to the K. according to the law of the church. At the request of the bishop, the K. lately ordered the sheriff of Limerick to seize the said goods and chattels according to that extent, or another if necessary; and this was done.

Now the K. has been shown by a public instrument in chancery that William and David had appealed to Rome both before and after the sentence and they intend to prosecute their appeal there. The said bishop has demanded the execution of their sentences not withstanding the said appeals, and the confiscation of their goods and chattels to the damage of David and William. The K. has accepted this.

Wishing to do justice to David and William, ORDER to restore the said goods and chattels to David and William, or their attorneys, for the above reasons and no other, on acceptance of suitable surety from them that they shall answer for the said goods and chattels if it is found that by right they belong to the K. And he is to testify to the T. and barons concerning the said surety.

To Oliver fitz Eustace.

Nicholas Cadwelly has shown by petition before the Jcr and council of Ire. that the custody of the K.'s castle of Newcastle McKynegan was committed to him by advice of the K.'s council after the death of Hugh Lawless, formerly constable, because no one else then wished to accept the office. Nicholas and his men maintained the office securely until Obryn, chieftain of his lineage, with a great force of Irish enemies and rebels, broke into the castle, and took Nicholas who was found in the same [castle] and wounded him badly, and he still holds him in prison and will not deliver him unless the K. causes to be delivered to Obryn one Jordan McSymond Obryn, Irishman, a hostage to be forfeited to the K. on account of the breach of the peace in this part, who is in the custody of the said Oliver fitz Eustace. Nicholas has pleaded that the K. should grant the delivery of the said Jordan to be released to the said Obryn so that Nicholas himself might be delivered. Having considered the plea and on the advice of council, ORDER to bring the said Jordan to Dublin as swiftly as possible and to deliver him to Nicholas or Hugh Possewyk, his attorney, by indenture.

To the T. and chamberlains of the Ex.

On 22 Feb. [1342] 16 Edw. III, the K., by letters patent under the g.s., granted Nicholas Gernon, for good service, 20 librates of rents and appurtenances in Drogheda that Simon fitz Richard lately held, in the K.’s hand by reason of forfeiture, to hold for life, the said rent and appurtenances to return to the K. and his heirs after his death. On 28 Aug. [1354] 19 Edw. III, by other letters, the K. granted him £46 13s 4d p.a. for life of the farm of the town of Drogheda, to be paid by the hand of the seneschal, mayor and bailiffs of the said town at Michaelmas and Easter in equal portions, for which Nicholas was provided with lands and tenements to the above value in Meath and Louth.

Afterwards, with the assent of the prelates, magnates and others of the K.’s council, it was ordained that anyone holding lands [etc.] in Ire. should be in that land or send people there before Easter [1369] 43 Edw. III, to remain there to help in the defence of the land under pain of forfeiture of the lands [etc.]. And because Nicholas remained in Eng. and did not send anyone in accordance with the ordinance, the said 20 librates of rent and appurtenances and the £46 13s 4d were seized into the K.’s hand. On 12 July, the K. pardoned Nicholas the above forfeitures and the lands [etc.] were restored with the issues of the said lands [etc.] and arrears for the time of the forfeiture, of the K.’s gift.

Wishing to be informed as to the amount answered for in the Ex. both of the 20 librates of land and the £46 13s 4d, viz. from 16 Sept. [1374] 46 Edw. III, the K. lately ordered the T. and chamberlains to search the rolls and memoranda of the Ex. and to return the findings in chancery. They returned that £98 are answered for of the farm of the town of Drogheda, which is equal to the 20 librates and £46 13s 4d altogether. Wishing that Nicholas be satisfied of the said £98, as is just, ORDER to pay him the said £98; with proviso that he should cause to be done and sustained for the defence and salvation of Ire. those things which are incumbent upon him by reason of the same.

To the T. and chamberlains of the Ex.

James Butler, e. Ormond, has pleaded that in the time of Robert Ashton, formerly Jcr, the K. granted him £100 of his gift for his expenses and labours in various wars. The earl levied certain tallies in the Ex. in part-payment of the said £100 from various debtors of the K. He has not yet received some of the sums of money contained in the said tallies, nor will he be able to do so, as he says. He has asked the K. to cause the tallies to be renewed and assignment to be made elsewhere. The earl has returned the tallies to court in the presence of the council, and the T. and chamberlains have received his letters of acquittance. ORDER to renew the said tallies and cause the earl to have assignment of the sums contained in them where payment can better be made.

To Richard Cruys of Coulmyn and John Tyrell of Poerestoun.

The prior of Little Malvern has shown by petition to the Jcr and council that when the K. learned lately by report of Richard Cruys of Coulmyn and John Tyrell of Poerestoun that the lands, tenements and possessions of the said prior in Ire. had been seized into his hand, he granted by letters patent custody of the same to the said Richard and John. At the instance of the prior, pleading by another petition to Ralph Cheyne, then deputy of Robert Ashton, then Jcr of Ire., the K. ordered Roger Hakensolke, deputy escheator, to return to the K. in chancery under his seal, distinctly and openly, the manner and cause of taking those lands, tenements and possessions into the K.’s hands. And, although it was reckoned by the return of that writ that those lands, tenements and possessions were in no way seized into the K.’s hand, Richard and John nevertheless received the issues and profits from them by reason of the K.’s commission, and still receive them, to the grave damage of the prior, as he asserts. The prior has asked the K. to provide a suitable remedy.

Because it was reckoned by the return of the said Roger that the said lands, tenements and possessions are and were in no way seized into the K.’s hand, the K. has thought fit that they should be delivered to the said prior by order of the Jcr and council, and he ordered that they be delivered to him by the said Roger, as is clear from inspection of the rolls of chancery. ORDER to interfere no further in those lands, tenements and possessions by reason of any commission of the K. made before this time.

To the T. and chamberlains of the Ex.

Comare McComarre, chieftain of his lineage, has shown by petition before the governor and keeper of Ire., and others of the council, that O Breen of Thomond, the K.’s Irish enemy and rebel, lately waged war on John McComarre, father of Comare, now dcd, and wasted the greater part the lands and tenements of the said John in co. Limerick and adjacent part because John and his men became the K.’s faithful lieges. After the death of his father, Comare gathered a great retinue of defensible men to the number of four hundred to fight the said Obren, whom he retained at his own expense from Christmas until now, whereby the faithful people of those parts were much comforted and better able to restrain the malice of Obren. Comare can no longer maintain his men or oppose Obren in the future without suitable aid from the K. and he has therefore sought remedy. Because James Butler, e. Ormond, the mayor and bailiffs of Limerick, and other faithful subjects of the K. in those parts have testified before the council as to the truth of the premises, and the said town and environs are threatened by Obren unless Comare repulses him, the K. by advice of council granted Comare 50m for the said arrears, as a gift. ORDER to pay Comare those 50m, receiving from him letters of acquittance.

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

William fitz Richard Burgh of Connacht has pleaded that he was ordered by the K.’s council to go from Kilkenny to Richard Burgh, his father, in Connacht to inform his father to fight Obreen of Thomond, chieftain of his lineage, who falsely and without title claims to have the lordship of Ire., and also to treat with others there, both English and Irish, enemies and rebels, and to restore them to the K.’s peace. William could not proceed to those parts without a great company of horse because of the dangers of the roads and the remoteness of the places. He has asked the K. to grant him a suitable reward for the various costs and excessive expenses he sustained in this part. On the advice of council and being favourable to his request, the K. granted William 10m of his gift as a reward and for the said reasons. ORDER to pay William those 10m.

To all concerned.

Various merchants of Galway frequently come to Cork with their merchandize to pay the customs owed on their goods, and these have delayed their coming because of the danger in crossing the sea to get to the port of that town and will not come to various other ports to pay the said customs because of the danger and difficulty, to the K.’s grave prejudice. For the K.’s convenience in those parts, and as relief for the burgesses and merchants in the town of Galway and lest any of them or other merchants in Connacht should incur damage or losses in coming to the said town to pay the customs, and with the advice of the council in Ire. it is ordained that the staple of wool, leather, woolfells and other merchandize shall be there for three years and that the said burgesses and merchants of Galway and Connacht and others who wish to come to the town will pay their customs there and not in Cork for the said time, notwithstanding the ordinance lately made that the staple ought to be in Cork, Dublin, Drogheda and Waterford and nowhere else. It is not wished that any of the merchants be interfered with for this reason by the K., his heirs, or Galway unless otherwise ordained.

When Reginald Bernavall was in the K.’s service in the company of Stephen [Valle], bp of Meath, in various parts of Ire., he could not come to musters, parliament, hues and cries within the county, nor reside in the marches of that county with other tenants for its salvation and defence, nor do other things ordered by reason of his tenancy within the county. Wishing therefore that Reginald be not troubled nor suffer loss in any way by reason of his absence for the time he was with the bishop, he is exonerated and acquitted of all things. ORDER, for as long as Reginald remains in the company of the bishop, not to amerce, implead or trouble him, by reason of the above, but rather to completely exonerate him.

MEMORANDUM that on Ascension Thursday [11 May 1374], James Butler, e. Ormond, lord of the liberty of Tipperary, and Patrick de la Freigne kt, seneschal of the liberty of Kilkenny, came into chancery at Kilkenny. There, because of reciprocal complaints made by the commons of co. Tipperary and the commons of co. Kilkenny before the governor and council, the said earl delivered Edmund s. of Edmund Butler to Stephen [Valle], bp Meath, and Brother William Tany, prior of St John of Jerusalem in Ire., C. of Ire., as surety [vadium] for making restitution and amends for all murders [etc.] and other trespasses committed by the commons of co. Tipperary against the commons of co. Kilkenny by the inquisition to be taken on that account and according to the decision of the said bishop and C. And the said Patrick delivered Ralph Freigne as surety [etc.] for trespasses committed by the commons of co. Kilkenny against the commons of co. Tipperary. These sureties were returned to the earl and to Patrick on condition that they both deliver them respectively on specified days and places, or other suitable sureties, by arbitration of the bishop and C. for those restitutions [etc.]. If they should not do so, they conceded that they would each be bound to the K. in 200s. Afterwards, the earl protested that he would not satisfy for those of the lineages of the Tobyns and Purcells of co. Tipperary.1

To the T. and barons of the Ex.

On 18 Jan. [1374] 46 Edw. III, in return for the sum of £20 to be paid in the Ex. by Stephen Fleming, the K. granted a licence to Robert Wakeman, Richard Lawless, William Warwyk, Richard Eustace and Gilbert Wryghte, chaplains, that they might receive and retain forever the following lands, viz.:

the manor of Duleek and also a moiety of a fourth part of the customs and services both of free tenants and Irishmen pertaining to the manor;
and also a moiety of a fourth part of the manor of Loghseudy;
and also two hundred acres of land in le Rothe;
and the customs and full services both of free tenants and Irishmen of the towns of Dunboyne, Keene, Drummoghire, Gormanston, Balygart and Cruyseston;
and 7m of rent in Dundalk, together with the lordship and services of all the K.'s tenants there;
and also the advowsons of the vicarages of the churches of Dundalk and Coolock.

They acquired them from Peter Howth clk and Hugh Portes, chaplain, who held them with Walter Fouler, chaplain, of the K. in chief, without the assent of the said Walter and without having obtained the K.'s licence, as appeared by inquisition taken before Roger Hakenshawe, deputy to Richard [Stury], escheator of Ire., and returned into chancery. Further that they might hold the same forever to themselves and their heirs of the crown by due and accustomed services, and that, together with the said Walter Fowler, they might assign the same to Reginald s. of Simon Fleming and the heirs of his body to be held of the K. and his heirs for due and accustomed services forever, with successive remainders to Thomas s. of Simon Fleming and his heirs, and Stephen Fleming and his heirs.

On 24 Jan. 1374, at the suit of the said Stephen and considering the great expenses he sustained in supporting the said Thomas, son and heir of Simon dcd, who held in chief and was a minor in Stephen's custody at the K.'s command, the K. pardoned the said Stephen £10 of the £20 he was bound to pay. ORDER to cause Stephen to have due allowance for payment of the said £20.1

John Dowdall, sheriff of Louth, has shown by petition to the governor and council in a great council held at Dublin how he was called to account before the T. and chamberlains at the quindene of Hilary [1372] 46 Edw. III. Although that day was adjourned until the quindene of Easter because the said sheriff was ordered to be present at a parliament then being held at Kilkenny, yet he was amerced 100s at the Ex. Afterwards, although that day was adjourned by the Jcr and T. until the quindene of Michaelmas because he was in Drogheda attending to his office and in the company of the Jcr going to treat with O Neil and other rebels, yet because of his absence in the quindene of Hilary, Easter term and Michaelmas, he was amerced for large sums amounting to 100s. And the day was further adjourned until the quindenes of Martinmas, yet he was amerced in £20 for his absence at the Morrow of All Souls, the quindene of Michaelmas and the quindene of Martinmas and seeks remedy for his expenses and albours and for the amercements. Because it is agreed that these articles are true, the K. has pardoned and remitted all amercements for the said reasons to the sheriff. ORDER to supersede all the said amercements and to pardon the sheriff for the same.

William Tany, prior of the hospital of St John of Jerusalem in Ire., has shown by petition to the governor and council that after the withdrawal from Ire. of Ralph Cheyne, then deputy of Robert Ashton, formerly Jcr, which left that land without any governor, he was elected Jcr of that land by various prelates, magnates and the commons of Ire. The prior continued in that office from 3 Dec. [1372] 46 Edw. III until 17 April last, viz. 1½ years. During that time, he had to maintain for the defence of the subjects against Irish enemies in various part of Ire. 20 men-at-arms, 20 armed hobelars and 40 unarmed hobelars, and 20 armed archers beyond the 20 men-at-arms that he was bound to maintain from his fee as Jcr, and he was engaged along with the men of his retinue in defending various marches and treating with various enemies and rebels at great expense and labour, for which he has sought recompense. Considering the premises and the supplication, the K. has granted him with the advice of council £40 of his gift in recompense for his labours and expenses. ORDER to pay £40 to the said prior or to assign it in debts.

William Karlell, one of the barons of the Ex., has shown that he was appointed by letters patent in the time of Robert Ashton, formerly Jcr, to purify the green wax in cos. Waterford, Cork, Kilkenny and Tipperary, and to take elections of sheriffs in the crosslands of Kilkenny, Tipperary and Wexford and in cos. Waterford and Cork. He also caused various inquisitions to be taken for the K.’s advantage, among which it was reckoned that James Butler, e. Ormond, received £200 and more of the prisage of wines at Waterford, for which, by right, he should answer to the K. William lost two horses worth 20m while working for six weeks on the said business and arresting a ship at Waterford, and also a horse worth 100s while going by the Jcr’s order from Carlow to Tristernagh to receive the oath of James de la Hyde, formerly1 seneschal of the liberty of Meath, who could not travel to Carlow to take his oath there because of the wars then impending in Meath. William similarly laboured in co. Wexford by order of the governor and council, inquiring there concerning treasure trove. William has sought remedy for his labours and expenses. The K. has granted him £20 of his gift, by name of reward. ORDER to pay him.

To the sheriff of Dublin.

Stephen [Valle], bp Meath, has shown by petition before the governor and keeper of Ire. that the K. lately committed by his letters patent to Thomas Astenwaith the custody of all the lands together with the tenements, rents and free services that belonged to William Bagot in Bagotesrath near Dublin, for the good service, labours and losses of Thomas in the company of William Windsor, Lt, to hold for so long as they should remain in the K.’s hand without rendering anything. Thomas granted and sold the said custody to the bishop of Meath for a certain sum. After the bishop had taken possession, one William fitz William obtained the said custody under the name of the manor of Bagotesrath from the K. by false suggestion, concealing the custody granted to Thomas Astenwaith in the time of Robert Ashton, Jcr; and he occupies it at present. The complaint was accepted.

Wishing that justice be done, the K. ordered the sheriff of Dublin to notify William fitz William to appear in chancery, wherever it should be in Ire., in the quindene of Trinity next to show why the custody should not be removed from him and delivered to the bishop, and to return in chancery the names of those through whom he notified William and the writs addressed to him. The sheriff returned that William was notified, as above. On that day, the bishop by his attorney, David Noulig, and William fitz William in person came to the chancery at Dublin. When asked about the custody, William alleged nothing and did not deny that the bishop had been in possession of the custody by virtue of the said grant and sale when he was expelled without warning. The K. adjudged that the grant to William should be revoked and the said custody together with the issues should be restored to the bishop. ORDER to restore them without delay.

To the T. and chamberlains of the Ex.

Robert Holywood, chief baron of the Ex., has petitioned the governor and council that on the first arrival in Ire. of William Windsor, formerly Lt, he retained at his own costs 8 men-at-arms, 16 hobelars and archers at Carlow for one month for the defence of that town while the Lt was fighting elsewhere in Leinster. And also Robert was ordered to remain with many men and horses at the K.'s parliament, twice at Balydoyll and twice at Kilkenny, once for a month and once for three weeks; and he also laboured in levying a subsidy granted by Dublin, Drogheda and Skreen in aid of the K.'s war, suffering the ingratitude of the people; and also at Kilkenny and elsewhere, where other councils and parliaments were held, both in the time of the duke of Clarence and that of other justiciars and keepers; and also he went to cos. Dublin, Meath and Kildare to extend lands in the K.'s hand and to take inquisitions at great expense. And the said Robert was sent by the council to various treaties and parleys with the Irish and the K.'s lieges in various marches in cos. Dublin, Kildare and Carlow for which many men-at-arms, hobelars and archers were retained in his company, without receiving anything from the K. for any of the above. On this account, he seeks remedy. The K. has granted him £40 of his gift for the above reasons. ORDER to pay Robert the said £40.

To the T. and chamberlains of the Ex.

The abbot of the Blessed Mary near Dublin has petitioned the governor and council that, although his predecessors were enfeoffed of all the possessions pertaining to the abbey to hold to them and their successors forever in pure and perpetual alms without doing any secular services on that account, and the K. and his progenitors by their charters had granted and confirmed that the predecessors of the abbot and his men residing in that house, whether Irish or English, should be quit of carrying arms and maintaining wards, as is fully contained in the charters, yet the present abbot was amerced in the sum of 13s 4d because he was not with Robert Ashton, formerly Jcr of Ire., at a certain parley between him and the Irish of Leinster. The abbot has sought remedy. As it has been testified that the present abbot sustained great expenses and burdens during the war between the K. and his adversaries in Ire. and considering the enfeoffment shown in chancery, and wishing to act on behalf of the said abbot, the K. pardoned him the said 13s 4d. ORDER to exonerate him completely of the said sum in chancery according to that pardon and the grants and confirmations of charters.

To the escheator.

The K. wished to be informed as to the reason for taking into his hands the manors of Incheroryk, Grenmoyars, Imlagh, Staanagh, Lesmolyng and 2 carucates of lands in Finnore, 3 messuages and 1 carucate of land in Doulek, and 2 messuages and 140 acres of land in Clonmel that belonged to Fulk s. of Patrick de la Freigne and Katherine, his wife, previously wife of Edmund Butler. The escheator returned that the reason for the seizure was that Edmund was indicted in co. Kildare of various felonies committed by him against the K.'s peace and outlawed there in the K.'s bench at the suit of Geoffrey s. of Robert. And furthermore he returned that Edmund could not forfeit those lands of Katherine's estate that he had obtained in jointure with her. ORDER to remove the K.'s hand and to restore the said lands, saving to the K. the reversion of the manor of Lesmolyng, and 2 messuages and 140 acres in Clonmel, and also of other [lands] that were entailed to the heirs of the said Edmund, after Katherine's death.

Dublin
To the T. and chamberlains of the Ex.

Master John Colton, T. of Ire., has petitioned the governor and council that when the said governor was Lt, after he departed from Leinster to Munster, Omorthe of Leys and other Irish enemies and rebels rose in war against the K. and his people, and burned and destroyed the town and priory of Athy, and the neighbouring parts. John went to the town to protect it with 26 horse and other marchers [marchionibus] and remained there for twelve days at his own costs. For this reason, John was obliged to provide horses, arms and equipment for some of his men staying there. Many of the enemy were thus defeated and killed. Later, after the withdrawal of Robert Ashton, formerly Jcr, Obrynne and others adhering to him were at war, John similarly stayed at Carrykmayn for eight days, and later for one month, with a great company of defensible men beyond his own retinue to resist them [the Irish] in salvation of the neighbouring marches, where every day he rode from morning to evening with others of the said marches undertaking various excessive labours at his own costs. And also, when Newcastle McKynegan was taken, burned and destroyed by the said Obrynnes and there was nothing in the treasury, the T. pledged his own goods for money for recovery and repair of the castle, to his damage and impoverishment. He and Nicholas Serjaunt, citizen of Dublin, with 35 of his fellows in his company, remained in the custody of the castle for five days at their own costs, because no one wished to be charged with the custody of that castle. While he was withdrawing, his horse worth 20m was killed by the Obrynnes. For all of which, John seeks remedy. As the governor and council are satisfied concerning the premises, the K. has granted £40 to John of his gift. ORDER to pay him the said sum.

To the escheator.

When the cathedral church of Cashel was vacant lately by the death of Thomas [Mac Cearbhaill], the last archbishop,1 the pope provided to that archiepiscopal see master Philip Toryntoun [Torrington], O.F.M., professor in theology, as appears by letters with the papal bull directed to the K. As the archbishop renounced all and singular things prejudicial to the K. and his crown contained in those letters and submitted that he will conduct himself humbly to the K., the K. took his fealty on 19 Sept. [1373] and ordered William Windsor, governor, or his deputy, to cause the temporalities with issues to be restored from 19 Sept., as is contained in letters patent of Eng. ORDER to restore the temporalities to the archbishop, with appurtenances and issues from 19 Sept., to be held in the said form.

Memorandum that when war existed in Leinster and Munster and the Lord Lt [William] Windsor was to depart from Leinster, where he then resided on account of the war there, into Munster before the said Leinster war could be finished, and he could not go with safety to the K.’s honour and without apparent danger of the loss and destruction of various parts of the marches of Leinster, it was agreed by himself at Naas on Thursday, the eve of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary [7 Sept. 1374] 48 Edw. III, that Stephen [Valle], bp of Meath, should go to Munster because of the great necessity there to do all he could, to go to the aid of Comarre McConmarre and other liege people against O’Brien and all other English and Irish enemies.

To the T., barons and chamberlains of the Ex.

The archbishop of Dublin [Thomas Minot] has petitioned the governor and council concerning the temporalities of the archbishopric that due to the death of John de St Paul had been in the K.’s hand. The said Thomas was elected and consecrated on Palm Sunday [26 March 1363] 37 Edw. III and the profits and issues of the temporalities were owed to him from the day of his elevation. However, Nicholas Beaconsfield, then escheator, kept the issues and profits of Easter term 37 Edw. III for the K.’s use. The archbishop petitions for restoration of the issues and profits to himself. The rolls are to be scrutinized, therefore, in order to establish how much was paid in issues and profits into the treasury for that term.

[15 Oct. 1374]

MEMORANDUM that, when war flourished in Leinster and Munster, and William Windsor, governor, could not proceed from Leinster to Munster without danger of loss or destruction of various parts and marches of Leinster, it was agreed by the same governor and council at Naas on Thursday, the eve of the Nativity of the Blessed Mary [7 Sept. 1374], that Stephen [Valle], bp Meath, should proceed to Munster in aid of Comarre McComarre and the faithful people there against Obreen and others, both English and Irish, and that he should have in his company as many men-at-arms, archers, hobelars and foot, armed and unarmed, as seemed useful and necessary, appointed at the K.'s wages or to be appointed by the governor and council according to the tenor of a commission on this matter made by the K. in Eng. to the said bishop, and enrolled in this chancery for the present year, viz.:

for the wages of the bishop, 13s 4d a day;
for men-at-arms with horses suitably armed for their state, 12d;
for reward or fee 5⅞d;
for unarmed hobelars, 4d;
and for any other man-at-arms, the accustomed expenses;
the fees and wages of foot, 2d;
for the wages of a captain of 20 foot, 4d;
and for the fees with reward of such a captain, just as the bishop can agree with them;
and that they should have fees and wages on the first day that they move from their homes.

And because the K. did not then have in the treasury of Ire. the means whereby war might be maintained, nor was it believed that he would have in the future, it was ordained and agreed that the said bishop should induce the K.'s faithful people and lieges in the said parts to grant subsidies by wahtever ways and means he could; and if they were unwilling to grant [subsidies] and the bishop was unable to obtain from the K.'s money the fees and wages whereby he might pay, that then grain and beasts for victualling and expense might be assessed and levied in each county of Munster by the sheriffs of the said counties paying reasonably at the K.'s expense from the issues of their bailiwicks, as follows below. Also, it was ordered that a writ of liberate should be made for the delivery of £500 to John fitz Rery, clerk of the wages, for making the said payments.1

To the T. and chamberlains of the Ex.

Peter Shirbourne has shown the K. that he lately took by force and arms Fullan Dancesson, Gilpatrick Okerwell and Donaldus Symondesson, Irish malefactors and disturbers of the peace of the lineage of les Otothils, and he delivered them for safe custody to Dublin castle, where one of them died. Although the K.'s faithful lieges of the neighbouring parts were bettered, comforted and relieved by their capture, and long afterwards the peace between them and les Otothils was far better established and faithfully held, yet because of various complaints and pleas that Otothill, captain of the said nation, made against the said Peter and other lieges of the K. on account of the said capture and for other reasons, and in order to avert greater perils, on the advice of the K.'s council it was decided that Peter should pay 18m to the said Otothill, to his damage and the depression of his estate. Peter asked the K. to consider the benefit of the capture of the said malefactors and the damage he suffered in paying the 18m, for which he seeks remedy. As the council was satisfied as to the truth of the premises, the K. granted 100s to Peter of his gift. ORDER to pay him the 100s granted to him as reward.
